Relationship counselling can help if you are feeling like you're going round and round with a particular problem, and are worried that friends and family are tired of hearing about it or it's affecting your emotional, physical, or working life. Talking to a professional can help you process your thoughts and feelings, and stop you feeling stuck in a continuous loop of feelings such as resentment, anger, sadness, rejection, uncertainty, anxiety, abandonment, betrayal, neglect, or suspicion etc. Asking for help is the first, often difficult, step towards understanding and unpicking your experiences. Discussing these in a confidential environment, at your own pace with an empathic, non judgemental practitioner can help you find your way through your distress and start to find solutions and new hope for the future.
I have over 30 years' experience in understanding human needs, motivations and behaviours, gained through paid and voluntary work in charities and commercial organisations. I am a qualified and experienced counsellor, a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy, have a degree in psychology and BACP accredited counselling qualifications, and I am a trained practitioner in Therapy for Depression. I am fully insured and I am committed to on-going professional development in order to practice ethically and safely, and stay up to date with current legislation etc.
I work with adult individuals and couples, both as a Relate counsellor and with my own clients, via online, phone, and socially-distanced outdoor face-to-face sessions in beautiful North Yorkshire locations.
Or outdoor sessions conducted in a socially distanced manner, walking or sitting, in quiet, safe, public, easily accessible, scenic locations around Skipton, Ilkley and North Yorkshire - daylight hours only, weather permitting.
