About me

I believe we all have the power to understand ourselves better and bring about positive changes, whether that's how you live your life day to day, how you are in relationships or putting your past more firmly behind you. As your therapist, it's my job to help you feel really understood and supported as you make your life closer to what you want it to be.

I've been qualified as a Counsellor/Psychotherapist since 2002; I'm qualified as a Supervisor of Counsellors and I also have a Diploma in Coaching. I have a thriving private practice and see 15 - 20 clients a week who face all sorts of difficulties: disordered eating, recovery from trauma, depression, anxiety and panic, anger management, bereavement, addictions, relationship issues, self esteem problems, self-harm, OCD, phobias, workplace stress. I can offer you distance work (video link or phone) during the covid crisis.

I have a comfortable and private counselling room overlooking my local park just a few minutes walk from the centre of York. There's on-street parking and several buses stop nearby. I'm also very used to working on the phone or online if that's more convenient.

I particularly specialise in helping with eating problems and have done a great deal of extra training in this area. Whether you have a problem like anorexia or bulimia or would describe it more as having a complicated relationship with food, I can help you learn to become much more relaxed around eating. I also frequently see people who are in the difficult position of being close to someone with an eating disorder.

If you think I could help you to change your life for the better, please give me a call or send me an email to find out more.

I've been an accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy since 2004 and am bound by their code of ethics. I describe my approach to therapy as humanistic/integrative. The humanistic part means I place great emphasis on the trust between client and therapist and aim to help you feel really heard, understood and respected. The integrative part means I borrow from other approaches, particularly Psychodynamic, CBT, TA and Solution Focused ways of working when appropriate. I believe in involving you in the process and being open and clear about how we might work.
I'm a qualified Coach and a qualified Supervisor of Counsellors.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.


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.

Wheelchair accessible but downstairs toilet may be problematic
