Welcome To Skipton Psychotherapy

I imagine if you have come to the Skipton Psychotherapy website you are having difficulties in your life. Maybe you are experiencing stress, emotional or relationship difficulties and feel like you need professional help to deal with it. By making this first step you now have the opportunity to make things different.

As Einstein said, "The significant problems we face cannot be solved at the level of thinking that created them."

So seeking help doesn’t mean that you are weak or inadequate in some way. It means you are taking your life seriously and have the drive to make it different but at the moment you need some guidance in helping you achieve what you desire. This motivation is crucial in making the changes you want.

I invite you to take time to read the contents of this website. If then you think I can be of help please call me and we can meet up and talk about how we proceed.

Thank you for your time. Please do not hesitate to call me if you need further assistance.

    Hello and welcome to the Skipton Psychotherapy website. My name is Michael Hartley. I am a qualified psychotherapist and have been in private practice since 1996. I offer psychotherapy for individuals and couples.

    What you can find on this website

    This website has more information about what psychotherapy is and how it may help you. You can also find information about the types of issues you can address in psychotherapy. Also there is information about psychotherapy for couples which you may find helpful if you are considering couples therapy.

    Further to this I have written a brief autobiography so you have some knowledge about me, what my experience and level of expertise is. I have included this because I believe choosing the right therapist is a crucial ingredient in the success of psychotherapy. I hope this information is of use to you. If you want to discuss anything further or want to arrange initial consultation then call me on 07941 488851.

    I hope you find what you are looking for!
