I am a UKCP registered Integrative Psychotherapist and member of SCPTI. I work in private practice as a therapist in the Scarborough area. I also work in the Ryedale/Scarborough area for an independent counselling organisation.
I have 10 + years experience of working in statutory services with adults who have enduring physical and/or mental health needs, autism and learning disabilities. I have also previously worked for 6 years on a mental health telephone support line for individuals in crisis/distress and at suicide risk.
My work includes individuals with depression, anxiety, life transitions, loss/bereavement (including ill-health, redundancy, end of life), bullying/discrimination, relationship difficulties, low self-esteem, abuse (including domestic, childhood sexual abuse), victims of crime, self-harm and addictions, and issues around sexuality.
I work with victims of crime and survivors of sexual abuse, and I am a member of PODS (Positive Outcomes for Dissociative Survivors). I also provide work place counselling for employees. For example - Health, Local authority workers etc.
I am able to provide a safe, confidential, compassionate, non-judgemental and supportive environment, and I am committed to my ongoing professional development, and supporting client's in reaching their potential and improving their quality of life.
I am available for evening work and Saturdays. I am happy to undertake brief and long-term work.
