Psychological therapy is recognised to be a highly effective means of dealing with emotional and personal problems. York & Ryedale Psychology Resource is committed to offering a confidential professional service, helping individuals to deal with their problems and gain the insight and skills needed to manage their lives from a different perspective.


People come in to therapy with a range of emotional and personal problems including:

  • Stress and Anxiety related difficulties
  • Depression
  • Obsessive-Compulsive Behaviours
  • Dissatisfaction with Personal/Work Relationships
  • Personal Crisis, Bereavement, Loss
  • Disturbances of Body Image
  • Traumatic Experiences, Physical/Sexual Abuse
  • Phobic anxieties and fears

Working through emotional problems with a trained, compassionate, therapist helps to identify repeating patterns of thoughts and behaviours, and relieve the stresses underlying life’s difficulties.  I have extensive experience in short-term focused work as well as long-term in-depth psychological therapy.


I am fully trained and experienced in Psychodynamic Psychotherapy together with Department of Health recommended treatments of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing.  I also trained in Mindfulness and Brief Solution-Focused intervention.


Immediate appointments are usually available and evening sessions provided. GP/Psychiatric referral not needed.


Therapy is not available to those under fourteen years of age or those having a history of psychotic disorders.
