I live in East Yorkshire and have a private practice in Beverley. I am a fully qualified BACP accredited counsellor and psychotherapist accredited counsellor and psychotherapist. Having had experience of counselling myself as a young adult I became interested in counselling as a career and now have over 15 years experience as a counsellor working in a variety of settings both with teenagers 16+ and adults. As a BACP registered counsellor I adhere to the BACP's ethical framework

I believe in trying to make counselling a down to earth experience. I do not believe in using jargon or making lots of notes and I aim to to make my clients feel as comfortable and welcome as possible. My aim is to try and really understand what is going on for you and to help you make sense of it. Like all counsellors I work in a non judgemental way meaning that you won’t be judged.

I have a special interest and experience in working with anxiety, depression, and eating disorders. I also have over 10 years experience in working with young adults (aged 16-25).

Do I have to know what’s wrong?

Some people come to counselling with a definite idea of what they would like to talk about and know what problems are standing in their way. Some people come because their GP has suggested that counselling might help.

A lot of people come because they are feeling unhappy in some way but are not sure why. I will help you gently unpick what is going on in your life and try to help you find a way out.


What does counselling feel like?

Unlike some of the media portrayal of psychotherapy and counselling, what I do is very down to earth. You will be sitting in a chair, not lying on the couch, and I do not record endless notes of what you say.

Often people feel a bit nervous of coming to counselling, particularly if it is the first time you have talked about your problems. I will try to make you feel comfortable about talking and to go at a pace that suits you.
