I am a friendly and professional counsellor located in Harrogate, North Yorkshire, easily accessible to people coming from Leeds and York and surrounding areas. I am offering face to face, webcam & audio, using Zoom™, and telephone sessions. I am experienced in supporting individuals from a wide range of communities, who have experienced personal difficulties, including:
Abuse, anxiety, bereavement, grief & loss, depression, loneliness and isolation, a sense of being stuck, loss of meaning, self-confidence issues, self-esteem, relationship issues, stress, work-related stress...
I have a special interest in grief and loss and offer bereavement counselling (encompassing all losses) to individual adults.
From my own experience of being a client and a counsellor, I believe that the effectiveness of counselling is in the quality of the client-counsellor relationship. My role as a counsellor is to accompany you on your journey, to support, to enquire, respectfully challenge and understand your perspective. This in turn, can enable you to realise your own inner resources to acquire a deeper understanding of yourself and your problems and engage fully in life.

Bereavement counselling can give you the space to share your story about the person who has died. As a counsellor, I am committed to providing counselling in a supportive, safe, confidential and non-judgemental space. I will work with you to explore your thoughts and feelings for the person that has died or other significant life losses, enabling you to acquire a deeper understanding of your grief feelings and learn how to begin to adjust to a life of change at a pace that feels right for you.

Each person's grief journey is unique as a fingerprint or a snowflake.

What I am is good enough if I would only be it openly.
Carl R. Rogers
When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves.
In the depths of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer.
We delight in the beauty of the
butterfly, but rarely admit the
changes it has gone through to
achieve that beauty.
There is only one corner of the universe you can be certain of improving, and that's your own self.
I assure you of a warm, friendly welcome within comfortable surroundings, at my therapy room in Harrogate.
