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.

Hi, It can feel daunting to ask support. My role as a counsellor is to offer you a safe, confidential place, where you feel heard and where you can talk honestly about whatever is troubling you. I can support you if you feel anxious but don't know how to change. If you feel emotional and tearful, wondering if anyone can truly understand the grief you feel after losing your loved one. When work or your personal life is making you feel stressed. When you need support to find your self-esteem and self-confidence again. Or support you to cope with a chronic illness or any other challenging life experiences.

Hi, thanks for reading this. I have worked as a counsellor now for 25 years, initially as a Counsellor and Supervisor for Cruse Bereavement Care, then for some counselling charities, a Hospice, and for the past 12 years in private practice from my home in York. I work integratively, holistically, and relationally - research suggests that successful counselling depends more on the relationship between counsellor and client than anything else, and this has been my experience too. We will work together to find the 'right' way forward for you.

Sex / intimacy, relationship difficulties, communication, family dynamics, arguing, managing a break up, anxiety, depression, low self esteem are all areas I can help.
I appreciate that it can feel difficult in asking for help and to put trust in someone you have never met, especially with often upsetting and difficult issues. It can feel like we may have somehow failed or its a last resort in trying to resolve difficulties. I have helped many people like yourself, who also felt unsure initially on what to expect and feelings of trepidation or embarrassment in asking for help. I believe that the therapeutic relationship between counsellor and client is all important to be effective in addressing the issues and helping you to make the changes that you want and to get things back on track.

The majority of people worry about weight or shape and try to diet at some stage in their lives. However, for some, weight is continually lost and gained and dieting becomes a cycle (commonly referred to as yo-yo dieting). Even if symptoms are not recognised as a formal eating disorder, persistent thoughts about size and appearance can cause misery, and prevent you from living a full life. Working with the psychology of chronic dieting behaviour and body dissatisfaction, my approach helps you to understand your history in order to build a future free from limiting beliefs about food and weight.

Self Esteem Counsellors
Self-esteem lives on a spectrum: Not enough self-regard (or low self esteem) can lead people to become depressed, or to tolerate abusive situations and relationships. Too much self-love (or high self-esteem), results in an off-putting sense of entitlement and an inability to learn from failure. And it's occasionally a sign of clinical narcissism. Quite the opposite of being shy or shyness, yet still on the same spectrum. Equally, to lack confidence or lacking confidence is common amongst teens: child self esteem issues can be helped with self esteem support groups in York and therapists' support dealing with self esteem.

If you're looking for help with self esteem in York or for a York self esteem counsellor, these professionals provide therapy for self esteem. They include self esteem counsellors in York, self esteem psychologists, self esteem psychotherapists and self esteem therapists in York. They can help with counselling for self esteem in York or self esteem counselling and treatment for self esteem.
