The Way I Work

As an intersubjective counsellor, I believe the key to successful counselling is a co-creation of the therapeutic relationship between counsellor and client. I work relationally.


Therapy sessions take place in a designated private counselling room in an extension at the rear of my house in Woodthorpe, York.  This offers a quiet, comfortable and confidential environment, where we can work together in a way that you feel listened to, understood and respected.

Your Counselling Journey:

  • An assessment of your reasons for coming to counselling and what outcome you would like to achieve
  • An introduction to how our counselling relationship would work
  • Discussion and agreement about ways of working together

When you feel ready, we will agree to draw the sessions to a satisfactory close and discuss a series of counselling tools to help you manage in the future.

Please contact me by email in the first instance.
