Whilst I don’t guarantee that these feelings will disappear completely, what I hope to do is help people to learn to manage them better and use many ideas from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Existential Psychotherapy in order to do this.
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.

The work I offer is based on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy ( ACT ) and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy.
We may find it helpful to talk problems through with someone close to us, but sometimes friends and family can not help and we need to speak to a professional therapist. I will spend time talking with you to understand your difficulties and to help you identify the roots of your problem and identify what you want to change in your life. In doing so we can find a way to work together to help you to reach your goals. ​I have worked with issues surrounding, anxiety, depression, trauma (including PTSD), low self esteem, stress, emotional management difficulties, phobias, OCD, relationship difficulties, and grief.

Acceptance and Commitment (ACT) Counsellors
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a type of psychotherapy that helps you accept the difficulties that come with life. ACT is a form of mindfulness based therapy, theorising that greater well-being can be attained by overcoming negative thoughts and feelings. Essentially, ACT looks at your character traits and behaviours to assist you in reducing avoidant coping styles. ACT also addresses your commitment to making changes, and what to do about it when you can't stick to your goals.

If you're looking for ACT therapy in York or for a York ACT counsellor these professionals provide acceptance and commitment therapy, ACT group therapy, ACT therapy, and acceptance commitment therapy. They include ACT therapists, ACT psychologists, ACT psychotherapists and ACT counsellors.
