Work and Life Experience

Alongside my private practice I am a volunteer and trustee for a charity in York called 1-2-1 Counselling who offer short-term therapy to people in the York area who may otherwise not be able to afford it.

I also work part time as a book-keeper, around my counselling practice.

A little about my life journey...

​I have over twenty years of life experience having begun my working life as a secondary teacher where, for ten years, I enjoyed caring for and guiding students.


However, in my early 30's, I came to a crisis point in my personal life and I found myself as a client in a counselling room. I was feeling disorientated and disconnected but with the help of therapy I began to understand how my story had gone and how different I’d wanted it to be. Through the support and trust in the relationship with my counsellor I felt understood and able to find courage to make different choices moving forward. It is the warmth in the relationship that I had with my counsellor that informs my own work now.

I hope that by having a snapshot of me and my life it can put you at ease making the difficult step to reach out. I believe it to be hugely important that when you sit with me, you can trust me, feel safe and supported so that you feel able to share and make sense of those things that bring you distress in your life.
