About me and my therapy practice

I am in private practice at Gosforth, Whitley Bay and North Shields, where I see children, teenagers and adults. I also meet with parents as a necessary part of the work with a child or young person.

I offer an 'at-depth' psychological approach. I have particular experience of psychotherapy with adults who have recurring  difficulties, such as repeated problems with personal or work relationships, anxiety, difficulties with managing anger, patterns of addiction or self-harm. These sorts of problems may be the result of difficulties from childhood or adolescence which were not able to be attended to at the time.  

I am experienced in therapeutic work with children and teenagers, (age 4-19) and am able to see children and young people with a wide range of emotional and/ or behavioural problems. 

I mainly work via non-directional play therapy for children, which allows a child to express in their own way what is troubling them. I have an interest in helping children who have significant developmental problems. (inc. ASD, PDD.)

I offer a flexible, indirect approach for teenagers, adapted to the needs of each young person.

I originally trained in adult counselling, however, I've undertaken a considerable amount of further study including 4 years of specialist psychotherapy training to work with children and teenagers.
