Psychotherapeutic Counselling and Hypnotherapy - Based in Harrogate, North Yorkshire and On-line


My name is Pauline Brumwell. I am a UKCP Registered Psychotherapeutic Counsellor and GHR Registered Hypnotherapist based in Harrogate, North Yorkshire. I have been working as a therapist for over thirty years. In that time, I have developed an effective, integrative approach that incorporates traditional talking therapies with creative approaches such as Gestalt, artwork, writing, and, where appropriate, Hypnotherapy, Traumatic Incident Reduction, and Brainspotting - an approach that has recently emerged from EMDR therapy.

I particularly enjoy working with highly motivated clients who are keen to fully understand and overcome the problems that are distressing them. Psychotherapeutic counselling is a great opportunity to find real and lasting solutions to problems, rather than looking for quick, or surface 'fixes', that may not last for very long.

I have substantial understanding of, and experience of working with, complex trauma. I am a member of the International Traumatic Incident Reduction Association. (TIRA) and attend training in new integrative approaches for trauma reduction on a regular basis.

I also have a good track record in helping people overcome...

  • Depression.

  • Anxiety.

  • Stress.

  • Problems relating to childhood emotional, physical and sexual abuse.

  • Problems relating to isolated traumatic incidents.

  • Destructive recurring patterns in relationships, career, or self-care.

  • Difficulty in letting go of old hurts.

  • Problems of over-work or perfectionism.

  • Issues relating to the challenges faced by lesbian, gay and bisexual people and their family and friends

  • I negotiate individually with each new client to find an approach that honours their own unique experience and strengths.

    I have worked on-line and by phone for many years, with experience as a helpline volunteer since the early 1980's. I was part of the first UK training in online counselling twenty years ago and have provided counselling online in a variety of formats since then. For most people, online or telephone counselling is as effective as face-to-face. These approaches have always provided a viable alternative to office based counselling where travel/access etc is difficult. And they offer a safe platform for therapy during the current pandemic.
