About me

I'm Simon, I am a therapeutic counsellor based in Redcar, North Yorkshire. My therapeutic model is Relational Centred Counselling. I work with clients from 18 years of age upwards on a one to one basis.

At present I work face to face and online. I work empathically and collaboratively offering caring support to the client. My aim is to gently effect positive change in your life, through empathic understanding of your past in the present.

A good therapeutic relationship/alliance with my clients is so important and helps to create trust, safety and compassion when working with their personal issues.

Please feel free to contact me to arrange an introductory session. I really look forward to hearing from you.

"The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not fighting the old, but building the new".

Training, qualifications & experience

I trained at Scarborough Counselling and Psychotherapy Training Institute where I attained a Diploma in Relational Centred Counselling. During my course and while attaining my accreditation hours for membership of UKCP, I worked in both the private and voluntary sectors, a broad cross section. I have now created a professional website in order to work with private clients and also with professional organisations.
