About me and my therapy practice

My approach ensures the work is all about you, without judgment or opinion. I will walk the path with you, as a person centred counsellor,  with empathy, care and reflection to help you process issues and help you understand and validate your lived experience.  Our work together will focus largely on self- acceptance, navigation of trauma, to allow healing and self-growth.  I am a level 5 qualified counsellor, with a warm, engaging down to earth approach  shaped by years of working with people and from my own lived experiences.

Practice description

I am a member of the BACP and work using their ethical framework.

My experience is based around bereavement, suicide, anxiety, loss, grief and health related trauma - especially cancer.  I have worked with people coping with the diagnosis of cancer, living with cancer and working with family members who navigate the path of their loved one with cancer. 

 I also work with people who find themselves in a tough place and need someone to help them navigate through difficult times. I also work for the charity Mind in Gateshead.

My first session

I offer a free 15-minute telephone consultation to help you decide if you would like to book a session with me.

If I am the right therapist for you, I will send you some paperwork, including a contract via your email. A counselling contract gives you clear guidelines and secures the work during sessions. All information is held confidentially and in accordance with GDPR. 

The first session is an assessment that helps to give me a clear understanding of what brings you to counselling and decide how I may help. By investing in yourself, it is an empowering and valuable journey that can enhance your life.

 I look forward to hearing from you.
