Finding any provider of a service is not an easy task. Recommendations can be helpful, but in the case of counselling you are probably seeking support from someone you feel comfortable with. I would encourage you to take your time looking through my website and those of other counsellors to find someone that looks as if they will suit you. If you would like to ask any questions to help you, about the way I work or about me please get in touch.

My aim is to help people relieve their distress and to create a more meaningful life, and so I am concerned that you make the best choice for you. An initial counselling session will be for you to discuss what has brought you to counselling, and state what your expectations are, and for me to answer any questions you may have. This first session is important for both of us to decide if we can work together, and if that turns out to be the case you can then make a further appointment.

I am a counsellor based in Leconfield near Beverley, East Yorkshire. My work specialities are,  workplace issues such as stress, bullying, and disciplinary hearings. I also work with personal issues based around relationship problems, grief, ill-health, self-esteem, depression, anxiety, anger and domestic violence. I have several years experience of working with survivors of sexual abuse including those suffering with PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder) and DID (dissociative identity disorder).

I am available for face-to-face counselling at my home in Leconfield.
