Beauty for ashes


'Beauty for Ashes Therapy' is based in Harrogate  – the mineral rich waters of Harrogate were discovered in the 16th century and were sought out as a source of healing and replenishment. I believe that counselling can be an important step towards healing in many people’s lives.

I am a qualified relational counsellor with an Advanced Diploma in Counselling and a member of BACP and the Associating of Christian Counsellors (ACC). I offer a confidential and ethical service for people from all walks of life; regardless of faith, background or presenting issue.  I work in a practical, down-to-earth way to find a better way forward for you, in a supportive, warm and safe atmosphere. 

​Essential to my work as a therapist, I am a wife and a mother to adult children. Parenting has given me precious life experience - the joys, the pain and the tears. Family life, my faith, as well as my experiences of living abroad; have taught me a lot about cherishing each person's uniqueness.
