About me

I offer Person-Centered Therapy (PCA), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT).

I do not offer advice, tell you how to think or provide answers. What I do offer my Clients is the opportunity to develop improved personal awareness and to explore your personal distress in a place of safety.

This is made through the use of both Humanistic (focus on your feelings and the past) and Cognitive (your thoughts and behaviours) interventions. It's my goal as therapist to help you find a route to improved personal function, the adoption of a functioning worldview and a few robust coping strategies that are realistic.

My work as a therapist is tailored towards helping you towards improved function when faced with the challenges and stresses of daily life. I believe that personal distress can be beaten and that a route to recovery exists for everyone.

My therapeutic work includes:

  • Addictions
  • Bereavement
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Anger
  • Self-harm
  • Obsessive/Intrusive thoughts
  • Life-Transitions
  • Stress related issues

Private Counselling is offered in Scunthorpe (a Town center location) and this is an appointment only service available on Saturdays (from 9am), Mondays (from 6pm) and Wednesdays (from 12pm). I am currently unable to offer other weekday appointments due to continuing commitments.

Lastly, please be aware that my counselling work is not generic and therapy is tailored to suit your individual needs.
