About me


Sometimes we all need a little help, juggling the pressures and responsibilities of work, families and relationships our personal lives can become stressful and distressing. Are you looking for someone to help you cope with your feelings and understand your anxiety or depression

I am an experienced BACP Accredited counsellor who can currently accommodate clients in both Scarborough, Bridlington, Pocklington, Driffield and most of the East Riding. Much of my work has been with depression, bereavement, general anxiety disorder (GAD) relationship issues, children (bullying/self-harm) and anxiety. I also work with clients who may be feeling depressed, sad and this includes divorce which can be very traumatic. Currently, I also work as a counsellor with adults and children / young people for MIND. I have an enhanced DBS Certificate.

My journey in counselling began many years ago when a close friend suffered from depression, this was not only distressing but also impacted on family. This experience has given me a personal insight into the world of mental health and how we can feel so alone. We all know when we see someone with a broken arm it is there to see, but people with mental health issues can often be invisible to even the closest around them and even to themselves.

Counselling through talking and sharing problems can help alleviate some of the most distressing symptoms that people feel and allow you to see things from a different perspective. I know I found this through my own personal counselling journey. It is often hard to do this on your own and therapy can help start this process of developing insight and self-awareness about your situation.

My approach is also based on BACP guidelines being respectful and non-judgmental. I  provide an empathic space for clients to explore problems I aim to keep the client safe. I will make each client the primary focus of my attention and our work during our sessions together. Helping the client to find ways of coping in situations that are the core of their distress and discovering the resources required to manage these problems that come along.

Member organisations


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.
