I am a fully qualified counsellor and a Member of BACP. I graduated in 2012 from York St John University where I undertook intensive training as an integrative humanistic counsellor. I have experience of working in the voluntary sector and in private practice. I also currently work for the NHS. I am based between Harrogate and Knaresborough, close to bus and train networks. There is free parking available. I also offer telephone counselling sessions if this is easier for you. I work with anyone aged 18 and over.
As a humanistic counsellor, I believe that the counselling relationship is hugely important and central to the work. I work hard to develop a supportive and empathic relationship with my clients, and because I believe we are all unique, I tailor my approach to suit each individual. I hope to encourage you to develop greater insight, awareness and understanding of problems that have arisen for you, and how change is possible. Together we can explore the issues you are facing to help you make sense of these. My aim is to help you work through what is troubling you in an empathic and non-judgemental way.
I am able to work with you for long term, short term or open ended counselling. For shorter term work we can discuss what you would like to focus on and we can set realistic goals that are important to you. I offer a free initial telephone consultation to discuss your needs and expectations, and for you to ask any questions you may have.
