I offer face-to-face appointments in Durham City and in Lanchester depending on your requirements and preferences. 

About me and my therapy practice

Sometimes we can feel overwhelmed, alone and struggle with ongoing emotions and problems. Counselling can give you the opportunity to talk things through, not having to deal with issues on your own and in a safe space where you can explore sensitively and without judgement the difficulties you are facing. Our sessions will be led by you, and supported by myself, with the aim of empowering you and strengthening your resolve to help you work through areas of your personal life.

I have a BA Honours Degree in Counselling which has enabled me to develop my practice and work with a range of clients in schools, charities, the local community, and a hospice. As well as my private practice where I offer counselling for children, young people, and adults, I also work part-time for a Youth Charity specialising in offering funded counselling to disadvantaged youth.  

Practice description

I am a Person Centred counsellor, which means I approach mental health by coming from a place of empathy during each counselling session. It is a talk therapy which supports a therapeutic process that encourages positive change.

I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), I have monthly supervisions and work within its Ethical Framework. I am also DBS checked and have an appropriate professional liability insurance policy.

One to one Counselling for adults is £45 per 50 minute session.

One to one Counselling for children, young people and students at a concessionary rate of £40 per 50 minute session.

(Students must have an academic email address ending ‘.ac.uk’ to be eligible).

My first session

This will be more of an assessment session, a chance to get to know each other a little and to find out your expectations of therapy. It is a significant step and can be quite daunting speaking to someone you do not know discussing personal problems. It gives you a chance to have a conversation about yourself, what you hope to achieve as well as what has brought you to counselling and it gives you an opportunity for you to ask questions regarding my practice. Getting to know one another is a vital part to the therapeutic relationship.
