Offering a range of therapy and counselling services
the heart of the Yorkshire Dales National Park
I have always been fascinated by life and
been curious to understand who I really am.
My father was a vicar and my mother a nurse
which has deeply inspired me to want to help
people too. This desire has led me over many
years to read a lot of books and attend
courses on everything from meditation to
mindfulness. My journey also led me to spend
a year living in community on the tiny
Hebridean Isle of Erraid, off the south west
coast of Mull and near to Iona.
I now offer some of the most effective
complementary therapies that really worked
for me. I have used Bach Remedies for over
40 years; started working with Reiki in
2006; spent time training with the Openhand
Foundation to be a facilitator; and have
Freedom Techniques to be an extraordinarily
powerful counselling tool and self-help
Having found strategies to cope better with
life's challenges, I hope I can help people
discover their own.
I studied my Diploma in Psychotherapeutic
Counselling (DPC) with Northern Guild.
I can offer integrative counselling services
for those experiencing situations such as
depression, anxiety, sadness, stress, anger,
low self confidence/self esteem, bereavement
and grief. I volunteer as a bereavement
counsellor with Herriot Hospice, and I also
take clients in an NHS setting. I have
been trained by ACAS in workplace mediation.
I enjoy walking with the dog, scuba diving
and also volunteer for the National Trust in
my spare time.
