** first session free**I am a person centered counsellor and a registered member of the BACP. I work within the BACP ethical framework. My aim is to listen and assist you in making sense of whatever bring you to counselling. I believe that everyone has the ability to change the situation that causes them distress. As a counsellor I do not hold answers about your life however you do and by creating a trusting, non judgmental environment to explore anything you wish I will support and guide you as you find your own answers.
I work with with a range of clients who bring many issues including depression,anxiety,relationship issues, abuse, suicidal thoughts and addiction. Taking the first step is always difficult and I fully understand this which is why I offer a free initial session without obligation. For more information on what you might expect when attending counselling please see my website and do not hesitate to ask me any questions.
I am located close to the University of York and work closely with student mental health, I have substantial experience in issues faced by students and welcome enquiries from them.
I have recently completed training in Autism within the counselling setting which has solidified my understanding and will underpin my upcoming practice, I have just over a years experience of working with clients with autism from age 16 upwards and welcome further enquiries.
I offer very flexible appointment times including evenings alongside competitive session rates and concessions available by discussion.
Please note that I unfortunately do not have a waiting area or toilet facilities on the premises.
Training, qualifications & experience

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.
