Welcome to Changing Seasons Counselling. Counselling for Individuals, Couples, Children and families in Wetherby, Boston Spa, Leeds, Tadcaster, Collingham, Knaresborough, Harrogate, and surrounding areas.
As most of us have experienced at some time or another, life’s not always a breeze – in fact sometimes it can feel like a tornado. Relationships may break down or you might lose someone you love, either through death or separation. Maybe you are feeling anxious over a situation at work or have an addiction that is getting out of hand. Whatever it is, it may be worrying you, as we are not always prepared or equipped to deal with difficult situations and can suddenly find ourselves in turmoil, emotionally or practically.
You are probably visiting my website as you are feeling troubled by issues you have been unable to resolve yourself. You may have tried speaking to friends or family but it’s not helping, or maybe you have nobody you can talk to? Although you won’t find all the answers on here, I hope it will provide some useful information at this time or maybe it will encourage you to contact me to discuss how counselling might be able to help.
My name is Beverley and I am a Registered Member of BACP (British Association
of Counselling and Psychotherapy) and work within their ethical framework for
good practice in counselling and psychotherapy. I am bound by their code of ethics and have monthly clinical
supervision, regular continued professional development and
training as well as full professional indemnity insurance.
I have worked as a Counsellor since 2001 and started as a volunteer with Cruse, The Bereavement Charity. I later started working with young adolescents in a college setting. I chose to develop my training with Relate as a Relationship therapist, during the 7 years I stayed there, I studied at Birkbeck College at the University of London, achieving a Post Graduate Certificate in Systemic Practice (Couples & Families).
My experience includes working within a variety of settings and working with different client groups, offering face to face, video and telephone therapy to couples , families, individuals and children age 5-17 years. Relationships are at the heart of my work and the trusting therapeutic relationship we build together is the foundation for positiive change to take place. I have extensive knowledge and experience in working with relationship issues, transitions, family difficulties, self-esteem, depression, anxiety, grief and loss. My style of working combines psychodynamic, person-centred and systemic therapy to offer an understanding, supportive yet appropriately challenging approach to my clinical work, thus supporting my clients to effect meaningful change and build better relationships.
I offer face to face therapy sessions in West Yorkshire at two locations: Boston Spa, near Wetherby and Cookridge, Leeds. I also offer telephone counselling and video counselling for those clients who prefer not to travel or may struggle with mobility issues or travel anxiety. Some of my clients prefer the comfort of their own surroundings and others prefer to meet with me in person. The choice is entirely yours.
I look forward to hearing from you and helping you work towards a more positive life.
