Face to Face Counselling

Face to face appointments are offered in a warm and welcoming counselling room based in The Offices, Lakeland Business Estate, Faverdale North, Darlington.


The building is based on one level, and is step-free, so easily accessible for anyone with mobility issues.


There is free onsite parking opposite the building.


Faverdale is also easily accessible by public transport available from the town centre. 


Online Counselling

I also offer online counselling via a secure platform using a link that will be emailed to you.


This allows you to access your counselling sessions in a location convenient for you - at home, work, your garden shed! Anywhere as long as you have a quiet and confidential space that you are able to speak freely and openly in.  


Requirements for this are a reliable internet connection, access to a smartphone, laptop, computer with webcam or tablet.  I would also suggest earphones for yourself so that you have good sound quality and to also help improve your privacy for the content discussed in our session.  


I have completed over 80 hours of continuous professional development in online and telephone counselling, so am trained and experienced in this way of working.  


I conduct sessions in a private, quiet space, free from interruptions, and I wear a headset to improve communication and ensure privacy for the information discussed.  

Walk & Talk Counselling

Walk & Talk Counselling allows us an opportunity to meet up at a mutually agreeable location, and to take our session outside. This provides a number of benefits, and a different space to be able to work in.  


Due to the confidential nature of sessions, it is important to consider how this could be managed when choosing a location.  We would also need to agree what would happen should we meet anyone that you know.  These things would be discussed in advance, prior to confirming Walk & Talk Counselling and our counselling contract would provide required boundaries, as needed. 


If this is something you would like to discuss further, please do not hesitate to make contact via email at talk@jamesyorkcounselling.co.uk or via the Contact page.
