I have previously helped clients with anxiety, depression, exam stress, self-confidence, relationships and chronic illness .
Sometimes life can seem "too much".  Maybe you are feeling stuck and not sure how to move forward?  If you are in a place of overwhelm, counselling can help you to talk through your feelings, explore who you are and learn to cope with the struggles that life can bring. I offer a calm and supportive space where I will listen without judgement, something which can be difficult to find when confiding in friends or family. I currently work with adults and young people over 16.

Sometimes life can become too overwhelming because of difficult events or relationships both old and current. You may be struggling with anxious feelings or have become stuck in unhelpful behaviours as you try to manage your world. This can become a lonely and disempowered place. People come to therapy because they recognise that the unhelpful thoughts or behaviours they have developed have become too powerful and limit their lives.

Perhaps you have had a bereavement, loss or other change in your life? Or maybe you feel stuck and you are not quite sure why you feel this way? Life can sometimes be challenging.

If you come to me for counselling, I will offer you a friendly and professional service, which respects your privacy and your concerns. You can feel comfortable to discuss whatever you need to, and be assured that I will try my best to understand and support you in the best way I can.

As a humanistic integrative counsellor, I love helping individuals reconnect with their authentic selves, become more self-accepting, heal and achieve personal growth. We all face challenges that test our emotional resilience. There are times when these challenges become too overwhelming and you may be finding it difficult to bounce back from your problems. Recognizing that you aren’t coping well with your challenges and emotional discomfort is a significant step to healing and asking for help can be highly rewarding. Instead of facing your problems alone, counselling can help you work through your issues more effectively.

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.
