Counselling Skipton

Welcome to my profile. I am a qualified Person Centred counsellor working from a a holistic and complimentary clinic in Skipton town centre. 


I offer both short and long term counselling depending on your needs. I also work with the REWIND Technique, a non-intrusive, safe and highly effective method for trauma, PTSD and phobia. 


As a Person Centred counsellor I believe you are the expert of yourself and that you have the ability to make changes and become more self-aware, if you are provided with the right conditions and the right support. 


During our sessions I will not be telling you what you should and shouldn't do. I will give you the space you need to explore what you choose, at your own pace and when you feel that you are ready. 


Contact me to arrange that first session to see how counselling may be able to help you. During our first, no obligation session you have the opportunity to see how I work and if I am the right counsellor for you. 



More about the REWIND Technique

This is also known as the fast trauma, PTSD and phobia cure. It allows a person to unhook negative emotions attached to a real or perceived experience. It is performed on a person when in a state of deep relaxation.


The REWIND Technique more often than not takes anywhere between 1 -3 sessions initially.



More about me

Prior to becoming a counsellor I worked for many years dealing with and supporting victims of crime. I also delivered training to Police Officers both locally and Nationally.


I am non-judgemental, I listen to what you have to say and accept you for what and who you are.

Online therapy

I can provide either telephone counselling or on-line counselling via Zoom or Skype.

Statement concerning the coronavirus pandemic

I am now providing face to face sessions again.

Upon entering the building you would wear a mask and use the hand sanitizer gel provided at the doorway.

I would then take you to the room that we would be using and once inside you can remove your mask if you so wish as the room is large enough to accomodate us both with a safe distance.

I would remove my mask as well unless you asked me not to.
