About me

We believe that emotional wellness is a maintenance thing, think of it as a work-out for your mind.

Our person-centred approach means we won’t set the agenda, give you advice or tell you what to do. Instead we’ll create a safe, empathic and compassionate space for you to talk about what’s troubling you and nurture your emotional wellbeing. Working with Jude will help you feel less troubled by the stuff that keeps you awake at night, and see emotional wellness as a part of everyday mental maintenance, intrinsic to being able to live the life you want.

We make counselling a helpful conversation with a qualified person, who’s real and gets it, and our fresh, unstuffy, contemporary and flexible approach fits into your lifestyle; however that works best for you.

Some of life’s best conversations happen on a good walk, close to nature, and we believe that your surroundings can impact how you feel, so we’ve created thoughtful spaces to enhance your therapeutic experience. Nestled in nature, overlooking the water. The Listening Space is an informal, welcoming and contemplative space. It’s retreat-like feel is thoughtfully designed, created with you in mind. An away from it all, restorative space. Open Space therapy combines connecting with your feelings and connecting with nature, taken at your pace around Hambleton Peninsula with places to pause and reflect along the way.

Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
