Psychotherapeutic Counselling and Hypnotherapy in Harrogate, North Yorkshire


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 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 experience in helping with...

  • Depression.

  • Anxiety.

  • Stress.

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

  • Problems relating to other recent or past trauma or traumas.

  • 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 LGB people and their family and friends


  • I have spent many years as a counsellor, hypnotherapist and trauma therapist, working with these kinds of issues and negotiate individually with each new client to find an approach that honours their own unique experience and strength.

    I am based in the centre of Harrogate, about 6 minutes walk from the bus and train station, where there are frequent services from Knaresborough, York, Ripon, Leeds and surrounding areas. My office is also less than 5 minutes walk from the Jubilee multi-storey car park for those clients who prefer to come by car.

    My office is upstairs. However for clients with disabilities, I can often offer work via phone or Skype, (including hypnotherapy by downloadable MP3 where appropriate).
