I am a Relate trained Relationship Counsellor and Psychosexual Therapist.
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?

  I do this by building a positive therapeutic relationship with you whilst treating you with care and respect.
I am a British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) registered counsellor offering counselling support within York city centre to young people (16+) and adults. Perhaps you feel overwhelmed, anxious or confused by recent or past life events.  You may feel stuck; finding yourself making the same unhelpful life choices or struggle with relationships, repeating negative patterns.  You may need the space to find some self healing and acceptance.  It is not my place to tell you what you need to do, rather we will work together to help you find clarity, move forward and regain control. We may work short or long term.

Trust in the relationship is very important and as in any relationship, develops gradually.
As a person-centred therapist I have many years of experience working with clients of different age, race and background. All are unique, and as such, require individualized support. I have worked extensively with clients who have suffered trauma, bereavement and cross cultural issues. I have collaborated with the police, military, NHS, survivors of Genocide and lived in a developing country. Often issues leave the individual feeling alone and struggling to move forward. The therapeutic relationship provides a safe confidential space to explore the struggles and enable the individual. Counselling can change lives and offer hope.

Sometimes problems can be difficult to articulate, like feeling lost, confused, or like something just isn’t right.

In sex therapy and relationship counselling, you are encouraged to explore the issues openly and without defence.
Communicating and staying connected can feel impossible during difficult times. When they work well, our closest relationships strengthen us and bring us joy; when they go wrong, it can be hard to understand the how and the why and that it might be necessary to seek professional support. Sexual problems may arise from psychological or emotional reasons. Sometimes sexual problems reflect relationship difficulties and sometimes sexual difficulties cause relationship problems. In such cases sex therapy combined with relationship counselling is the best way forward.

I believe our relationship with "ourselves" holds the key to many of our issues.
We can all at times have intense feelings that we find difficult to control. Falling into the same old patterns, getting angry & stressed instead. Anger causes relationship problems leaving us feeling misunderstood, anxious & depressed. This can be a lonely & isolating place. Whether it be relationships with family, friends, neighbours - reality is we cannot avoid relationships. Trouble is they can be stressful to deal with, especially when trying to work out acceptable boundaries or forgive or trying to repair damaged relationships. I am the creator of The Angry Tent & The R.U.D Process - therapy tools to help manage anger.

There are many reasons why people come to therapy. It may be a major life crisis or a specific issue, or it may be that you are struggling with day-to-day life and would value someone to talk to and gain clarity. I understand that asking for help can be daunting; I also know that seeking counselling may be the first (big!) step to a happier future. I will work at your pace and the work we do will be collaborative.

Relationship Issues Counsellors
While need for human connection appears to be innate, the ability to form healthy, loving relationships is learned. Some evidence suggests that the ability to form a stable relationship starts to form in infancy, in a child's earliest experiences with a caregiver who reliably meets the infant's needs for food, care, warmth, protection, stimulation, and social contact. Such relationships are not destiny, but they are theorized to establish deeply ingrained patterns of relating to others. The end of a relationship, however, is often a source of great psychological anguish.
