​​UKCP registered counsellor and psychotherapist in Middlethorpe, York

About Me

I didn’t take a linear path to becoming a counsellor and psychotherapist; previously I worked in the finance and IT sectors. I decided to retrain as a psychotherapist after having worked in corporate life for many years. I completed my training at the Northern Guild of Psychotherapy in Humanistic and Integrative Psychotherapy over five years. At the end of it, I gained UKCP and BACP accreditations as a psychotherapist and have practiced clinically since 2011. I’m now working as a psychotherapist and counsellor in Middlethorpe.

My qualifications are:

M.A. (distinction) in Psychotherapy
Post Graduate Diploma in Psychotherapy   
Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling

I help people to unpack, understand and learn how to manage the feelings and emotions they are experiencing so they can feel a sense of ease and peace.

I provide a safe space where you can heal whatever it is that stop you from enjoying life; from connecting with others; a space where you can breathe, where you can experience being deeply heard.

Together we find a way to make sense of what happens in your inner world, to heal and to grow. You learn how to identify your pain, develop self-compassion and manage your emotional life with awareness. I help you begin to feel a sense of calm, of being more authentically ‘yourself’.

Professional Memberships:

I hold Clinical Registration with UKCP and I'm also a member of the BACP and the NGP. The UKCP holds the largest register of British professional psychotherapists, it list practitioner who meet its rigorous standards and training requirements. I am accredited by the UKCP and work within its Ethical Standards and Code of Practice.
