About me

Life can be hard at times. We can experience loss, changes in our health, family circumstances or work life. Maybe our relationships are not fulfilling our needs and we do not know how to change things. At times, we don’t feel good about ourselves, we lose confidence in our ability to cope with life or maybe we feel impacted by past experiences or held back through feelings of anger, shame or guilt. Sometimes we don’t know what’s wrong, but we just know something isn’t right. I can help you explore what is going on for you by giving you a supportive space to talk and be heard.

I work with adults and young people (14+) and welcome clients with autism, ADHD, dyspraxia or other neurodiversity, either with a formal diagnosis or self-diagnosed. I offer face to face sessions in my welcoming therapy room at Blake House, St Martins Lane in the centre of York, as well as online and over the telephone.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a BACP Registered Counsellor, and hold a Masters Degree in Counselling from York St John University and a first degree in Psychology from University of Sheffield.  I have 4 years post qualification experience during which time I have helped clients overcome difficulties such as anxiety, depression, loss, traumatic experience, relationship difficulties, childhood abuse and low self esteem. My clients include both adults and young people, and have particular experience in working with autistic clients, and those with ADHD and dyspraxia. I work in an integrative way, which means I draw on a range of counselling and psychological theories reflecting what I feel will be most helpful to you, as well as your preferences.

I currently work in my own private practice and as a sessional counsellor at Open Minds Counselling, Doncaster. I am also a trustee at 121 Counselling in York.

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
Accredited Register Scheme

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

Additional information

It is very important that you find a counsellor who you feel comfortable to work with. With this in mind, I offer a free 20 minute consultation to help you decide whether I may be the right therapist for you. It also gives you the opportunity to ask any questions you might have. If you decide to go ahead, my sessions are £60 for a full 60 minute session, whether face to face, online or via telephone.
