About me

Welcome to my profile. My name is Judy Field. I am a counsellor working in the Harrogate, HG1 area.

  • Are you struggling with emotional distress?
  • Have you lost your sense of direction and purpose in life?
  • Does life feel overwhelming and confusing?
  • Do you want to feel better about yourself?
  • Do you want to learn more about yourself?

I work with a wide range of issues, and have substantial experience in working with people who are facing bereavement and loss in life. Some examples include:

  • The death of a loved one - a family member, partner or friend
  • Relationship breakdown
  • Redundancy
  • Loss of independence through health

How counselling can help

Talking to someone who is non-judgmental, warm, compassionate and empathic can help you find new ways forward and create deeper understanding of self, your feelings and emotions and the problems you may be facing.

How I work

My counselling approach is firmly grounded in the humanistic tradition believing that you are the expert of your own lived experience. I believe we all have the potential to bring about change for ourselves and talking to a counsellor can help to re-ignite that potential.

It is my philosophy, in having experienced both sides of the therapeutic relationship, that the effectiveness of counselling is in the quality of the relationship between the client and counsellor. My role as a counsellor is to accompany you on your journey, to support, to enquire, respectfully challenge and understand your perspective. This in turn, can enable you to realise your own inner resources to acquire a deeper understanding of yourself and your problems and live a more authentic and happy existence in life.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a BACP registered counsellor and have full professional indemnity insurance. I abide by the BACP Code of Ethics, which you can learn more about on their website: www.bacp.co.uk

I hold an enhanced certificate with the Disclosure and Barring Service.

Professional qualifications, training and experience

  • Transactional Analysis 101
  • Postgraduate Diploma in Humanistic Counselling (York St John University)
  • University Certificate in Counselling Skills (York College)
  • BA (Hons) Interdisciplinary Human Studies (University of Bradford)

Further specialist training is a vital part of my commitment to continuous professional development, as is having regular supervision.

My background

Before changing career paths to become a counsellor, I worked for 20+ years in the charity sector, which included working in the areas of volunteer management, mentoring, and supporting bereaved carers.

What to expect in the 30-minute introduction session

The 30-minute introduction session will give us both a chance to see how it feels to work alongside each other and how to proceed. If we have agreed to work together we can decide the number of sessions and the pattern of reviews to make sure our meetings continue to meet your needs. I believe that finding a counsellor that you are comfortable working with is vital to the process and outcome of your counselling therefore you are under no obligation to work with me if you do not feel I am the right person for you. Equally, it might be appropriate, if I feel I am not the right counsellor for you, to signpost you to an alternative counsellor/service.
