About me

Hello I aim to help you find a way forward out of a stressful or painful time.

I believe there is always hope for change. Having worked in the NHS and Public health for many years specialising in addiction and health improvement l now work in private practice in Acomb.

I also supervise counsellors and volunteers in two local York charities. Working from a person centred approach I also integrate other theories of counselling as appropriate including CBT. I am comfortable working with issues of faith and spirituality.

I understand that finding the right therapist to work with can be hard and so I recommend a brief telephone conversation before booking an appointment.

Sometimes short term work of about six sessions is enough to understand a situation and make significant changes however I also offer work longer term to where it is appropriate.
