I am a fully qualified and insured counsellor and an accredited and registered member of BACP. I hold an Enhanced Certificate from the Disclosure and Barring Service which is continuously updated and allows me to work with adults, children and young people.
I qualified and graduated in 2012 from York St John University. I have worked as a counsellor in the voluntary sector with adults experiencing a wide range of issues. I have experience of facilitating groups for adults and young people with a focus to improve self esteem and emotional wellbeing and with an aim to build resilience and work on strategies to deal with issues to include anxiety, depression and managing difficult emotions.
I also have experience working as a case manager and counsellor for a Wellbeing at Work organisation in Harrogate.
I am an Associate Counsellor for Arch Mediation Services who work with families to improve relationships and support a wide variety of presenting issues. I am also an Associate Counsellor with Krysallis Counselling Services where I use practice rooms to see one to one clients. Krysallis is close to the bus and rail network and there is disc parking in the area.
I offer free initial telephone consultations to discuss your needs and for you to ask any questions you may have. If you decide to work with me we can regularly review and there will be no pressure or obligation to continue if it is not what you want.
I have completed extra counselling training to allow me to work therapeutically with children and young people. I have gained a wealth of experience of counselling children and young people within a small charitable organisation and in schools and other venues, working one to one and in groups. I have successfully written an 8 week course which I further developed and delivered with a colleague to many groups of young people to support their emotional wellbeing and self esteem and I facilitated a support group for 2 and a half years which supported the young people completing the course in maintaining healthy levels of self esteem. This work has been adapted from the therapeutic group work that I originally wrote and delivered to adults struggling with self esteem and confidence issues.
