I also specialise in parenting , carer and work related issues.
Are you struggling with some of life's challenges? Need someone to help work through things and find a way forward? I am an empathic, warm, experienced counsellor. I can offer a safe space with no judgement, where we explore together what is going on for you and what positive changes you want to make. I work in a person centred way, which means we work at your pace on the issues you want to bring. I won't tell you what to do because I consider you to be the expert on yourself, but I will help you to work out the right strategies and ways forward for you. I am available 10.30-14.30 on weekdays. I work in person, online or by phone.

I am an experienced Child, Young Person and Parent Psychotherapist based in Harrogate. There are times when we all struggle emotionally. For children and young people it can often be difficult to understand their own emotions or be able to express their thoughts. Sometimes this leads to overwhelming and confusing feelings, with behaviours that seems stuck, possibly resulting in low self-esteem and struggles with relationships. Counselling and creative therapy provides a safe and supportive space to explore emotions, feelings, develop an understanding of our thoughts whilst building communication skills and emotional resilience.

I have had the privilege of working with and listening to many people speak about their life experiences and mental health. I understand how difficult and challenging life can be. How overwhelming work, relationships and family life often are and how desperate the need can be to find purpose and meaning in our lives. I am very interested in how we learn to adapt to change. This can include entering relationships, parenting , retirement, redundancy and in particular relationship breakdown and divorce. I believe change is possible, whether you are looking to create a life change or the way you feel about your life experiences.

Sometimes we find ourselves stuck and unsure of how to move forward. This could be due to a big life change, loss, relationship issues, parenting issues, anxiety, depression or making an important decision (to name a few). Maybe you don’t know why you feel stuck or unhappy and feel that you shouldn’t be! You’ve taken the first step by reaching out for help. I realise that counselling can feel daunting and overwhelming. I can offer you a safe, confidential space to explore any obstacle that you are struggling with, without judgement. Sometimes we need someone to just listen.

I understand how as an adult/ parent we can become ‘stuck’ in unhelpful patterns of behaviours and talking about them in sessions can feel exposing and raw.
I have worked with children and adults in primary and secondary education and mental health for some years. During these varied experiences, I learnt that when I applied psychological thinking to a problem, it allowed the individual to gain an insight and develop a better understanding of how to manage and work towards overcoming their issues. I use this strategy frequently now and I really love to see people scaffolding clients to realise their true potential. Being a parent myself, I understand how challenging it can be navigating a neurodiversity in particular with little or no support. I can signpost you to assessment services.

I specialize in trauma, grief, existentialism, and parenting issues.
I am a trauma-informed, integrative therapist with NHS experience. Being trauma-informed means that I use a specific approach to therapy that recognizes and emphasizes understanding how the traumatic experience impacts a person’s mental well-being. This type of therapy is rooted in understanding the connection between the trauma experience and the person’s emotional and behavioural responses. Being integrative means that I can work at your pace with a wide variety of skills tailored to suit you. I am aware that therapy is not a “one size fits all” and I pride myself in working with you to reconnect you with your values in life

Life, what's it all about? It can bring unexpected joy and/or unwanted challenges. However, we know that those challenges which create psychological and physical strains can preoccupy us the most. As a counsellor, I have a longstanding interest in supporting children, young people and adults who are going through difficult times. I will listen and engage with empathy, thereby making easier for you to feel safe as you share your thoughts and experiences.

I offer the opportunity and support for individuals from all walks of life to explore their struggles with the aim to develop an understanding of themselves and build confidence in their abilities and in who they are. Over 10 years I have supported men, women and children of different ages, cultural and social backgrounds through their own journey.

We experience so many significant events such as bereavement and loss, relationship difficulties, depression and anxiety. Sometimes we question who we are, how we are feeling or feel a need to move on from events in our past. These are some of the reasons for seeking therapy.

You have likely arrived here because yourself or someone you know is thinking about counselling. This can be a worrying and confusing time and you may just need information about what counselling is and how you can make use of it. I chose counselling as a career as there was a time where I felt like I had no voice. I was alone with my thoughts and feelings. Having therapy, allowed me to understand how it feels to be listened to, with no judgement or a fear of being misunderstood. It gave me time, space and the confidence to open up. I want to work with others and communicate how to work on their self-love and belief in themselves.

When it’s not always possible to chat to a friend or loved one about personal issues counselling can be really helpful. Using a warm and down to earth style my sessions will use techniques to help discover the underlying symptoms, using a non direct approach. This will allow us to explore any issues you have, develop ways to overcome them, and move forward positively at a pace that feels right for you. As a fully qualified counsellor I offer help if you suffer emotional from problems with low self esteem, relationships, work related stress, abuse, child related issues, abandonment, drug abuse and addiction, amongst many others.

I'm Andy and as a qualified person-centred counsellor, I strongly believe we all have the ability to navigate life's challenges by drawing on our own experience and capabilities. My role is to enable clients to explore whatever they choose in order to gain a deeper understanding of how it's impacting them, enabling them to create positive change. I do this through actively listening and offering useful reflections of themes I may notice, including any changes over time. I ask clients questions that encourage them to think about their experiences in new ways and never judge or lead anyone into talking about something uncomfortable.

Parenting Counsellors
In a rapidly changing world, parenting can be subject to fads and changing styles, and parenting in some privileged circles has become a competitive sport. But the needs of child development as delineated by science remain relatively stable: safety, structure, support, and love.
