About me

Hello, I'm Zara and I work as a counsellor in Harrogate. I believe that everybody can hit a patch in their life when they feel they are not coping as they would like to, whether it is because of anxiety becoming over-whelming, or through depressive thoughts leaving a sense of emptiness. Sometimes people can be struggling with a recent difficult life event, or perhaps are carrying unresolved pain from childhood. Whatever the issue, I always aim to provide a supportive and warm setting, where the client can share what is distressing them; we then can work as a team to discover the best way forward.

I am originally from N.Ireland and have a particular interest in anxiety and how it affects us both emotionally and physically. A safe, confidential space in which to talk and be listened to can be the first step to a deeper, more compassionate understanding of oneself, and can start to clarify how we want life to be.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have an HE Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling and am a registered member of the BACP. As well as being in private practice, I also work as a part-time counsellor at The Police Treatment Centre in Harrogate. Previously, I have worked on the counselling team at Craven College in Skipton, working one-to-one with students , who were dealing with issues such as exam stress, relationship problems and family breakdown,. I have also worked at Talking Spaces in Harrogate, a counselling service in Harrogate, dealing with adults struggling with issues such as depression, anxiety, domestic abuse and childhood trauma.
