A Bit About Therapy

Personalised Attention for All Your Psychological  Health Needs.











I implement effective counselling methods to instil self-understanding among clients and encourage them to adopt new attitudes and feelings towards life situations. 








It’s essential to keep in mind that therapy is not a magic pill or a quick fix: therapy is a healing process that necessitates participation and investment from the client. 

But in the end, making small changes to self-defeating behaviour and coping with feelings of sadness, fear, and pain can bring life-altering results.









 

Services I Offer

With You Every Step of the Way

Your well-being is my ultimate concern.
For many years, I have provided clients in the Kingston upon Hull area, and the surrounding villages with counselling services to suit their needs.  My therapy sessions are designed to strengthen your confidence, and assist you in the healing process. Take a look at the services I offer, and get in touch with me today.

Here For You

Feeling a bit down lately and nothing seems to lift your spirits? It might be time to seek help from a qualified counsellor. My sessions help clients develop positive attitudes towards life’s most complex and challenging circumstances. Contact me today and let me help you find the best in yourself.

Low Self Esteem

Sometimes a number of bad experiences can have a cumulative effect on how we think of ourselves; sometimes something that happened in the past can trigger low self-esteem in the present.
During counselling, negative patterns might emerge, which could highlight your self-concept.

You may find it useful to talk about, and work through past experiences – even if they’re painful. You may lay some old ghosts to rest, and forgive yourself and others, and move on.

The past can’t be changed, but how you think about it, and how you approach the future can.


If you’re looking for quality therapy sessions with an accredited counsellor that cares, then you’ve come to the right place. I guide my clients every step of the way and implement various methods to help them develop new attitudes towards all of life’s most complex matters. Book an appointment today and see what I can do for you.

A Happier, Healthier You

"The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step…"

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) has been shown to be one of the most effective treatments for General Anxiety Disorder (GAD).

CBT can help you to understand how your thoughts, feelings and behaviour affect each other. It can also help you to understand and challenge your negative and anxious thoughts.

CBT can also help you recognise, and change what safety behaviours you might be putting in place, such as avoidance.

General Anxiety Disorder (GAD)

Symptoms of GAD include


Heart palpitations

Dizziness

Feeling restless

Trouble concentrating

Trouble sleeping


Everyone has feelings of anxiety some time in their life – You may feel anxious about a job interview or an exam. This is normal at times like this.

Sometimes you may find it difficult to control your worries. You might feel anxious a lot of the time, and find it is affecting the rest of your life.


Anxiety is the main symptom of:

Panic disorder

Phobias

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

Social Anxiety

General Anxiety disorder (GAD)


People with GAD feel anxious most of the time, in a number of situations.


Depression 


Depression doesn’t discriminate. It can affect anyone, male, female, young and old. Counselling is effective in treating mild to moderate depression.

The signs of depression can be complex and can vary from person to person. If the feelings are interfering with your life and don’t go away after a couple of weeks, or if they come back, over and over again, for a few days at a time, it could be a sign that you’re depressed in the medical sense of the term.


What are signs and symptoms of depression?


Do you have trouble concentrating or remembering things?

Do you have angry outbursts frequently?

Do you find yourself losing interest in daily activities?

Have you experienced a reduced sex drive recently?

Do you feel as if your thinking has slowed?

Do you wrestle with feelings of sadness and discontent?

Do you find that even small tasks require a lot of energy?

Are you plagued by regret, getting hung up on past failures?

Do you struggle with suicidal thoughts?

Do you have trouble sleeping?

Are you irritable often?

Have you noticed a change in your appetite recently?

Are you agitated or anxious often?

Do you break into crying spells for no apparent reason?


These symptoms can have a negative impact on your well being and usually affect your relationship with your partner, family or friends.

Understanding depression and its triggers can be helpful for sufferers trying to manage the condition.

Counselling involves talking about difficult or painful feelings, and as you begin to face them, you may feel worse in some ways. However, with help and support you should gradually start to feel better.


Contact me today and let me help you find the best in yourself.

Clinical Supervision

I feel that it is extremely important that you can trust your supervisor. Many supervisees’, particularly in the early days, after their training, can be a bit fearful of supervision. I know myself, and even trained counsellor’s experiences of their past supervisory relationships can sometimes evoke memories of embarrassment, shame and judgement 


I work collaboratively with supervisee’s offering a safe space without fear of judgement. I believe supervision is a place for curiosity and reflection, whilst being supportive and challenging to promote supervisee’s awareness and understanding. This is to help ensure the effective development of their counselling practice, and to enable a safe, trusting relationship.


I enjoy sharing my experience, knowledge, and training with my supervisees’ and inevitably learning from them too. I believe supervision is a two way process, as you will bring your own experience, as well as your hopes and fears  to enrich the supervisory relationship. 

I can offer supervisee’s the benefit of my experience from my ongoing private practice, which includes extensive experience of managing risk in addition to my professional experience and continued professional development training. 

In addition to my private practice, I have worked on a clinical oversight team for a counselling provider in Hull helping their counsellors manage clients difficult issues, which includes risk. 


The supervision model I am currently practising is The Seven-Eyed Supervision model developed by Peter Hawkins and Robin Shohet. 

I like The Seven Eyed model, as it focuses on the relationships between client, therapist, and supervisor and on the interplay between each relationship. The model is called “seven eyed” because it focuses on seven distinct aspects of the therapeutic process. By looking through each ‘eye’ it is possible to see a different side of the whole of your supervision session. I also incorporate aspects of Page and Wosket’s  "Cyclical model".

  • I will help you to abide by the BACP ethical framework
