Our Counselling takes places face to face by a qualified Counsellor in a private and confidential place within community venues in and around Selby in North Yorkshire. It is open to those experiencing anxiety or depression and those living with a disability or health condition, that maybe struggling to accept and come to terms with the impact this is having on daily life. One to one counselling can give people the opportunity and space to talk about their hopes, fears and concerns. The counselling approach is person centred and adapted to the needs of an individual and their circumstances. Counselling can also be offered to family members of those experiencing disability or health conditions, anxiety or depression.

Meet the Counsellor
Hi, I’m Tracy and a qualified Therapeutic Counsellor since 1999. I am a registered member of the BACP and work to their Code of Ethics. Over the years I have worked in various settings providing Counselling and support to people and their families and carers with a variety of disabilities, health conditions and experiencing mental health difficulties as a result of these. I have lived experience of disability myself and also as a parent of 2 disabled children. I have experienced anxiety and depression at times as a result of this lived experience. I was keen when I moved back to Yorkshire to set up a flexible and easy to access Counselling service to put my skills and knowledge to good use to benefit the local community. I have been fortunate to meet good, enthusiastic people with the same desire to help others. Through these connections Strive Yorkshire was created and I am delighted to be leading the project work of this organisation.
