Psychotherapy ...Here to Help

About Me

Why not try sharing your problems with someone who will listen and not judge? Someone who is willing to support you to overcome your anxiety? I offer a gentle and compassionate, confidential and caring service. I like to think of my practice as a safe haven for counselling advice.

When we are struggling with our mental health problems we often go to family or friends for support and this helps. But sometimes when things become too overwhelming even for them to help, we all need somebody unbiased and professional to turn to. Especially when life-long problems are concerned.

I work with people who have depression, anxiety or eating disorders, and other issues, no matter how passing or enduring. I help people get through their problems in an understanding, non-judgemental, safe way, whilst maintaining the highest levels of confidentiality.

I work as a psychotherapist for local charities and in the NHS.

I see young people, adults, couples and families and on a short-term or long-term basis, depending on the presenting issue.

I abide by the code of Ethics of UKCP. This means I offer complete confidentiality – I keep everything the client tells me to myself, except if there is a risk to the client’s life or somebody else’s. I receive fortnightly clinical supervision so that I can offer a service that is based on clinical guidance and best practice.

I also have full indemnity insurance cover and an Enhanced Criminal Record Check.

I am a Registered Gestalt Psychotherapist. I studied in Scarborough, at the Scarborough Counselling and Psychotherapy Institute. I am accredited with the UK Council for Psychotherapy, UKCP. I have a degree in Psychology.

I also offer therapy via skype, Facetime or telephone.
