Offering you over 20 years experience from my personal and professional life, I have first-hand experience of how trauma and loss can affect our lives and our own self-worth, resulting in anxiety and low-confidence. I turned to counselling for help. I experienced how supportive counselling can be, how it can assist people to turn their lives around. This was my inspiration to become a counsellor.

How can counselling help you?

Counselling can help you understand yourself and your behaviors better, providing an opportunity for you to talk about your problems, challenges, and difficult feelings in a safe, confidential environment. I will listen to you with respect and without judgement.

Counselling can help you to express and explore your thoughts and feelings about what is worrying you and make some sense of your responses and experiences. This can help you to feel more settled, confident and in control, empowering you to find a way to a more positive future. 

I am a person-centred Counsellor


Person-centred therapy harnesses the client's natural self-healing process. Given the right relationship with the therapist, clients can decide what they want to do with their lives.

To this end, person-centred therapy is a personal growth model also known as non-directive therapy.

Person - centred therapy is the core of all my therapeutic work.   

I am a member of BACP- the British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists. I work in accordance with ethical framework of good practice.

I have full professional indemnity insurance and hold a DBS enhanced child and adult certificate.

Back to Nature


Counselling therapy outdoors in the natural environment can involve walking, discovering nature, or simply just sitting outside in the local park or your own back garden. 


Therapy outdoors gives you increased freedom to express yourself, a greater connection with the therapist and the natural environment. Discover yourself in the peaceful tranquil Yorkshire Dales with back to nature outdoor therapy.
