Through this difficult time I have put a special package together for 12 weeks online/phone counselling. Please ring for more information. Stay Safe, Tal
Thank you for taking the time to view my profile; I am a fully qualified and registered Counsellor with over 11 years experience helping people through all types of emotional concerns.
I am offering a confidential counselling service for couples or individuals in the East Riding of Yorkshire, Scarborough and Bridlington Region. The service I offer can be one to one or online counselling (Facetime, Skype or Zoom.)
I have a non-judgemental and accepting approach. I am good at listening and supporting and will help you identify negative emotions or behaviours that will enable you to move towards growth and fulfilment in your life.
One of the most important parts of your journey is for you to connect and feel at ease with me, therefore I am offering an initial 30-minute confidential assessment free of charge, so you can meet with me and decide for yourself. This gives you the opportunity for us to highlight areas of concern that you may have and for me to hear how you would like things to progress and whether my counselling process is appropriate for your needs.
As a counsellor, I abide by the ethical framework required by the BACP, my networking abilities and my experience within the community has given me the insight and skills to work with people from all types of social and ethnic backgrounds.
I am an experienced health trainer and have helped motivate many people in areas of nutrition, mental health and lack of physical activity. A large part of my ethos and training has been to examine human behavioural patterns, exploring the barriers and different theories that trigger negative responses that continually make a person unhappy. When we become aware of our barriers change can happen towards a happier and healthier life.
I am enthusiastic about the service I provide and have a good relationship with ancillary and signposting services within the community; using my excellent communication skills to help direct clients to the right areas of additional support.
I do have dyslexia and found that this has not stopped me with my written or verbal skills. I have found that it has helped in building trust with clients who have dyslexia, can't read or write, or any disability, it makes me human and not perfect which people can relate to.
I hold an enhanced CRB disclosure and I am insured.
One of my other passions is teaching Counselling; I use to delivering the level 3 Diploma at Bridlington College and level 4 Degree at Beverly College in Counselling skills. This kept me up to date with all the new theory’s and new perspectives and research within the field of counselling.
If I sound like the kind of counsellor you would like to see, please drop me a line or give me a call. Early appointments available weekly.
Training, qualifications & experience
Training, qualifications & experience
My Experience is such that for the last 10 years I have worked with clients that have suffered many different issues, which includes Childhood/Adult Sexual Abuse, Mental or Physical Abuse and Rape. Survivors of sexual abuse may battle with depression and become involved with substance abuse, alcohol or self-harm as a way of coping with their predicament. Unfortunately, these coping methods are temporary and may harm the survivor further.
Diploma in Counselling Study and Skills.
Bachelor of Arts Degree (BA) in Counselling Studies.

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.
