A qualified and registered counsellor with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy, I offer counselling support to adults (18+) within York city centre. There are situations in life that may have led you to feel unable to cope, judged, isolated, or not believed. Sometimes the reason for this is clear, and we know where to seek help, but at other times it is not. Drawing upon a range of approaches and techniques tailored to your needs, I will assist in helping you to explore your thoughts and feelings to find clarity, build upon your inner resources and live life more fully.
I work with adults and young people (16+). My clients come for a range of reasons. I have experience working in a range of settings with clients who have different goals/needs. However, most of my experience is with clients who have experienced trauma. Usually this work is around supporting clients to work through or process the things that cause them distress, and exploring what living more fully or meaningfully looks like, so that they are less impacted by things that have happened in the past. I welcome all enquiries, and I welcome students and trainee therapists.
Welcome. I work alongside women at a women's counselling service and provide a warm and safe space for you to share whatever may be troubling you. You might be anxious, stressed or overwhelmed. You might be struggling to make sense of what has happened to you or feel stuck and can't see a way through. You may feel a sense of loss, alone and without direction. Whatever you are feeling, I offer a safe space so you can be truly heard, working at your pace to find a pathway through whatever issues you face. Accepting of whatever you chose to bring to our sessions. With you, by your side in whatever space feels most comfortable to you.
Life can feel tough and challenging at times. This may be following a specific life event, a change of circumstance, or for reasons completely unexpected or unknown. When we are struggling with something difficult we can often feel unhappy, confused, anxious or overwhelmed, with a sense of feeling stuck and unsure of where to start or what to do. Whatever your reason for accessing therapy, I believe that we all have the capacity for change and positive personal growth and that counselling can support you to bring about the change you want by helping you to find ways of placing yourself back in control.
Sometimes life can be a struggle and we feel unable to move forward in the direction we want. You don’t have to struggle alone. Therapy can be a helpful way to make sense of what might be affecting you in a safe and non-judgmental environment. I work by firstly spending time getting to know more about you and what you have experienced. From this, we can then generate an initial understanding together of what might be contributing to the difficulties you are experiencing, drawing upon proven and evidence-based therapies. Therapy can help us generate new insights, skills and tools.
I offer two Therapeutic counselling rooms in a calm non- judgmental space for you to bring your life experiences and feelings. We all experience difficulties in life sitting with us from the past or present and over time can impact on us in our daily life such as increased levels of Anxiety, stress and avoidance. Counselling can be a way for you to explore these issues and for us together find a way to help you through this and gain self- awareness to discover the changes you want to make in life. In the process to find out more about yourself through your journey.
I believe counselling is a collaborative process, a safe space for you to explore your thoughts, feelings and experiences, without judgement. It may feel right now that you want someone to fix things for you, however I believe we can work through your current issues and reflect on your past experiences towards lasting change. We will start by exploring what brought you to therapy and what you hope to gain from this experience. You may feel overwhelmed and unable to see how you can create effective change in your life. Through awareness and a deeper understanding, we will work towards increasing your self esteem and confidence.

Are you struggling to function after a traumatic birth or witnessing a birth? Are you avoiding pregnancy or pregnant but overwhelmed, making decisions about your care based on fear? Just as birth and pregnancy loss can leave physical trauma, so too can birth, pregnancy loss and indeed even fear of birth for the first time, leave a mental trauma. The psychological scar, if left unprocessed, can negatively impact how you think and feel on a daily basis, which radiates out to impact your relationship with your partner, family, friends and child/ren.
