About me and my therapy practice
When you’re feeling overwhelmed or stuck by life events choosing the right counsellor may seem a little daunting. Clients turn to counselling for an array of reasons; each of us having our own personal journey and unique story.

As well as my Private Practice I work for several Universities and worked with an Eating Distress Charity covering the North East.
My fee is on a sliding scale offering reduced rates for block bookings, those receiving benefits, on low income and students. Please contact me for further information where we can arrange an initial appointment either face to face or by telephone.
