About me and my therapy practice


I am a warm, friendly and approachable Counsellor. My core training was the person-centred approach. I feel that this approach is a strong foundation to work from. I am a professionally qualified Counsellor and a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP) and I adhere to their Ethical Framework for Counselling professionals. I also hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Counselling. I will provide a safe base for you to explore your current thoughts, feelings and personal experiences. 

My aim is that therapy will be a collaborative, personalised, authentic and rewarding experience. During sessions I may use psycho education where I feel this may be beneficial to you to enable you to gain an understanding and to increase self-awareness. I believe that a client should have a ‘toolbox’ to use following their therapy journey. 

My own personal life experiences are what motivated me to train as a Counsellor. I trained as a Counsellor for five years and it was during that time that I found my passion for the person-centred approach, which primarily puts the client at the centre of the relationship. Although experience has taught me that ‘one size does not fit all’ and I now integrate skills and techniques from other approaches as appropriate to each individual client. I am currently working in private practice in Gosforth, in addition to a North East Mental Health charity.

Practice description

I am currently offering sessions face to face in Gosforth (£45) and online (zoom) and telephone (£35). 

Counselling can help with a wide range of problems including: Anxiety, anger management, attachment issues, bereavement and loss, bullying, depression, domestic abuse, low self-confidence, panic, phobias, low self-esteem, relationship difficulties, self-harm, sexuality or gender issues, trauma, OCD, work related stress and eating distress.

We can sometimes find ourselves going through difficult times in our lives - fear, loneliness, grief, anger or guilt. You could be going through a crisis such as bereavement or sudden change in a relationship or work. Counselling can help to make sense and meaning and to support you through a crisis in your life.

I believe that the therapeutic relationship is the most important aspect of counselling. The therapeutic relationship can provide you with a safe base to feel truly heard, accepted and understood in a non-judgemental and confidential environment.

I attend monthly supervision, hold an enhanced DBS certificate, fully insured and adhere to data protection laws. I believe that in the field of counselling, learning is an ongoing process and I am fully committed to regular CPD to enhance and further my existing knowledge and skills. In addition to research on best practice and guidance issued by NICE guidelines.

I work on both a short and long term basis with individuals over 16 to help them overcome barriers and gain invaluable self-awareness. 

My first session

The initial session is free of charge and you can tell me the issues and experiences that have brought you to therapy. It will also be a chance for you to tell me about your goals and expectations you would like to gain from therapy. I fully understand how difficult it can be starting therapy and will answer any questions that you may have about the process. We can then decide if I am the right counsellor for you.
