Simon Baverstock Integrative psychotherapist , YO24
While normally I work face to face in York and Scarborough, during this time of Covid-19 restrictions I offer psychotherapy sessions by telephone or secure online video call and you can contact me by text, phone or email to arrange an appointment.
I use the CORE - Outcome Measures self assessment forms periodically through my clients' journeys if they are willing as a way to monitor the effect and direction of my clients' psychotherapy.
Please leave me a message of what you're looking for if I am unable to answer your call. I will return your call when it is convenient. I aim to respond to all calls within 48 hours.
I welcome and have worked with people with experience of psychosis and Dissociative Identity Disorder.
Training and qualifications
I completed the Open University level 2 course "How to do counselling online: a coronavirus primer" in May 2020 in response to the Covid-19 social restrictions; I hold sessions online and over the telephone.
I began working with clients in 2012 in my fourth year of postgraduate training for a diploma in Integrative Relational Psychotherapy at Scarborough Counselling and Psychotherapy Training Institute.
In 2014 I co-founded Northern Lights Therapy Service in Scarborough which specializes in the treatment of adults who have profound childhood experience of sexual abuse, neglect, domestic and/or sexual violence, trauma and exploitation. I remain a director in practice there.
Prior to my psychotherapy training I gained a B.A. (Honours) degree in Theology and Christian ministry in 1997 and worked in drug and alcohol rehabilitation and youth work with periods in the leisure and manufacturing industries.
I charge £45 for each telephone or video session of sixty minutes duration. You may contact me by telephone or email to discuss how I might assist you. I have telephone and video sessions available between 8:30am until 8pm evenings weekdays excluding Wednesdays.
