About me and my therapy practice

I help clients with stress, anxiety, depression, trauma and abuse, coping with grief and loss, & intimacy related issues among other issues. I work with my clients to create an open and safe environment where thoughts and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment. It takes courage to seek out a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. I am here to support & empower you in that journey. Our journey is collaborative to giving voice to your concerns and the changing you wish for yourself.

With 10 years of professional experience with a BA (Hons) in Counselling. I am a member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) and my approach is integrative and work in a transpersonal way - which means to explore human growth and help people discover a deep and more enduring essential self that exists beyond the conditioned ego. 

Please ask me questions.

Practice description

I see clients face-to-face in Barnard Castle (DL12) on a Monday. On other days of the week I offer online sessions via Zoom.

For new clients I offer a 30-minute initial consultation over the phone that's free of charge. This would give you a chance to experience how a session feels and if you are comfortable to work with me.

All sessions, whether in-person or online, last for 50 minutes.

My first session

In our first session we would talk about how I work, what your expectations of counselling are and any worries you might have. I would also ask a few questions about your general health and what brings you to therapy. We would then decide if I'm the right person for you.

Together planning six sessions with a review with the option of continuing in an open-ended way if you felt there was more to explore.
