All Joinery Services Ltd

What do I offer?

I offer professionally qualified help with a range of issues including:

• Emotional problems

• Anxiety/Stress

• Depression

• Relationship difficulties

• Bereavement

• Abuse

• Personal Development






How do I work?

Firstly I try to ensure that you are at the centre of our work together.
It is you who decides what your issues are and what you want to bring.

I work holistically from an existential philosophy which means I want to
work with you in your entirety which will therefore include many aspects
of yourself not just your mind.

I seek to understand and work with the whole person within the ‘givens’ of
their existence.

You may feel you want short or longer term work and I can do both. For
some people it is helpful to commit to 4 or 6 sessions followed by a mini
review when we explore together how you feel it is working for you.
Others prefer to be more free flowing. Either is possible.


How can I reach you to talk about my needs?

I believe the quality of our relationship is very important and I therefore offer
you an initial free consultation with me to discuss your situation and the
difficulties you are experiencing so that we can both see if we feel we can
work together. I am contactable by phone or email.

What kind of service do you offer?

I offer individual. couples and family work. Each session lasts for one hour.

How much does it cost?

My rates are currently £45.00 per hour for individual work and £55.00 per
hour for couples and family.






What qualifications and experience do I have?

I am a qualified Counsellor (Diploma in Counselling) who chose to further
my study by training in Gestalt Psychotherapy at the Metanoia Trust.
My training, which is on-going, has covered many years and includes
separate training in Dance therapy and Group Process. I have worked for
over thirty years in my field and have wide experience ranging from mental health to the more everyday issues that affect most of us from time to time.
I offer both long and short term work and have great respect for the
individuals unfolding development. For many years I managed a large local association of MIND the leading mental health charity. I work to the BACP
code of practice.

Where can I see you?

I operate from Easingwold and Harrogate in North Yorkshire
