With much understandable anxiety, overwhelm, depression, loss and sadness at this time, I offer a caring, safe, confidential, supportive and non-judgemental space to explore whatever brings you to therapy at this time. Alongside you, I may work towards enabling a surer sense of yourself; safely working with relationship issues (in the past or present); to understand life-changes (e.g. divorce/separation/retirement/identity issues/ bereavement and loss); and in working traumatic moments or life-events. I offer short and longer term work. Each session can potentially discover something new as a spur to growth and healing.

I have a particular interest in working with individuals who are experiencing intrusive thoughts and difficult feelings around death (their own or others). This experience is commonly known as death anxiety or thanatophobia. The foundation also specialises in working with people experiencing related difficulties such as being preoccupied by issues of transcience, impermanence, change, ageing and loss. They may also be afflicted by a sense of purposelessness or meaninglessness. People experiencing such difficulties to a significant degree might be said to be experiencing existential or philosophical OCD.

I believe the goal is to live the best version of your life that you possibly can, in the circumstances you find yourself in that time, whilst taking action towards getting to where you want to be. I believe that for any of us to overcome challenging times, we need to be willing to put in the work. I can teach you how to do this. I offer a range of therapies and my aim is to not only help you with the problems you are facing now, but to help you learn how to be your own therapist when problems arise in the future.

Whether you are experiencing anxiety, having difficulty adapting to the ever-changing demands of the world, or finding it hard to express yourself, you don't have to cope alone. Flexible Mind Psychology offers specialist therapy for those who are feeling disconnected or isolated, even when they are around lots of people, leaving them feeling unable to access help from others or unable to contemplate new ways of thinking. If you are someone who is often assumed to be coping perfectly well, who doesn’t like to make a fuss, and who appears to be okay on the outside but who is actually struggling on the inside, get in touch.

Hello I’m Jane and I have been working as a Counsellor for over 15 years. I am an accredited member of the BACP. In my experience I have found that clients come to counselling for many different reasons. Sometimes it can be very specific but other times issues can be less clear. Maybe you have been feeling overwhelmed, stuck or more emotional than usual. People often discount how there feeling in the hope that it will go away. I can offer you a safe space where together we can explore what it is that you or others are noticing and help you manage any changes you may wish to make.

We each have our own particular blend of resources and limitations, specific to us and unique as a fingerprint. That's why my therapeutic counselling doesn't provide 6-step plans, workbooks or programmes. It's open, free-flowing and exploratory. It takes the time to clear a regular safe space in which to unpack the events, relationships and emotions that you bring with you to this moment. To think about your feeling and feel your thinking. To talk, to laugh, to be tired, angry, uplifted or simply just to take the time to be. With compassion, empathy and without judgment.

Most people, at some point in their lives, experience emotional difficulties. This may be due to traumatic events, overload of stress, or issues stemming back to childhood. Talking through such difficulties can help to validate and make sense of your feelings, work out how to heal, and move on with positivity and meaning in your life.

Life, in all of its complexity, can be challenging, and our experience of our own thoughts and emotions can cause us distress which can be difficult to alleviate and understand. I’m sorry if you are struggling at the moment. I would like you to know that there is always hope and that life can become easier over time, despite how difficult this may be to currently imagine. I understand that reaching out to a psychologist can feel daunting, and that simply looking for a therapist can take courage.

Do you feel your relationship is stuck in a rut? That it lacks the spark it once had? Are you having the same argument over and over again? Or maybe your looking for a new relationship. Maybe you feel your sex life is lacking in some way and you have lost that intimate connection you once had. Are you struggling with the limitations Co-vid has placed upon society?

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, psychologist, or counsellor, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counsellor in York?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in York specialise in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or counsellor who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

Can I afford counselling?
Yes. Most counsellors offer reasonable rates or will work on a sliding scale basis. Many accept health insurance. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the counsellor.
