Hi, I am a Psychotherapeutic Counsellor based in Market Weighton.
I offer a safe, welcoming space in which I will support you to explore your difficulties. I have experience of working with childhood trauma, anxiety, loss, domestic abuse, divorce, separation and the difficulties that parenting can sometimes bring.
I offer both short term and long term work and I believe the key element to successful therapy is an enabling and trusting relationship in which you feel safe to talk. I will listen to your difficulties in a non-judgemental way and allow you the time and space for you to talk. To support you to do this I am able to draw upon different theories/types of psychotherapeutic counselling to find what best suits you. I hold boundaries around confidentiality and abide by the code of ethics of UKCP. I am DBS checked and hold indemnity insurance.
Taking those first steps to get support for yourself can be scary, I can’t promise that therapy will be easy but I have learnt through my own experience of therapy, that by giving ourselves the time and having a safe, confidential space to talk can enable us to grow in our authenticity.
Like all UKCP registered psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors I can work with a wide range of issues, but here are some areas in which I have a special interest or additional experience.
