Counselling in York

Sometimes it helps to talk

In today’s highly charged and stressful society we are under increasing pressure. Within this environment most of us, at some point in our lives, experience problems, difficulties or times where things just do not feel right either individually or in our relationship.

At these times it can help to talk things through with someone. The question often is who to talk to? You may be concerned about sharing your thoughts or feelings with friends or family for fear of causing offence or being judged. Perhaps they are so full of advice that your needs, wants and opinions become lost.

This is where talking to a professional counsellor can help and is why people of all ages and walks of life are seeking help in counselling.

At Envy, we offer a confidential service, where you are free to say what you feel, think and want in a supportive environment. Our approach is tailored to suit you.

Working from Envy Beauty Salon means that customers enter our premises for a variety of reasons so your privacy is maintained.

Governed by The British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy you can rest assured that our conversations will be received sensitively, professionally and confidentially.

Who I work with

I work with couples and individuals, over 16 years.

Couples Counselling

Relationships are not immune to the stresses of life and whilst, in many instances, sharing with a significant other may help alleviate the stress, there are times when the expectations or felt expectations of others adds to the strain.  Maybe you feel helpless or your partner just doesn’t give you what you need or perhaps past resentments and experiences are colouring your view of now.

Couples therapy allows you to sit with your partner and explore each other’s side of the story without interruptions or rows.  It enhances your understanding of each other, allows you to discuss negative feelings or behaviours, external issues, manage differences of opinions and learn how to communicate and be heard. 

I will not judge or take sides, but give both parties an equal voice, facilitate change and a greater understanding of each other.

Not all relationships make it but counselling offers you a safe space to explore your relationship, minimising the emotional trauma to each other and those around you.

Sessions cost £50 for an hour, the number of sessions required varies for each couple and so there is no fixed number of sessions, whilst we discuss progress, the choice to continue is yours.

Individual Counselling

I work with men and women, over 16 years. I have experience in working with a variety of issues and concerns, for example, bereavement, relationship problems, low self esteem, anxiety and those seeking to understand the impact of past trauma on their life today.

I believe we are all unique and so I work with everyone as an individual, integrating different techniques to ensure my approach is tailored to suit you.

I work collaboratively with clients, I will not judge you or tell you what to do. I offer a supportive, non judgemental space in which I help you explore your life and its patterns and the world around you, freeing you to make any changes you wish to make. It is important that you feel comfortable with me and so our first session is one which allows you to meet me without any further obligation.

Sessions cost £45 for an hour.  The number of sessions required varies for each person, there is no fixed contract. Whilst I will discuss your progress with you, the choice to continue is yours.
