About me and my therapy practice

Are you feeling anxious or experiencing low mood? Do you struggle with low self-esteem? Have you been through a trauma? Do you need someone to talk to?

I am an accredited person-centred counsellor and an empathetic listener. I will support you with warmth and encouragement as we work to overcome any difficulties you have. I see you as the expert in your own life and will strive to empower you to make any changes you think will be beneficial. 

I have experience working in private practice, education establishments and for counselling services in the North-East. I have many years experience in education and training and currently work in a university counselling service supporting students. I work with adults over 18 and specialise in anxiety and low mood, low self-esteem, bereavement and sexual violence, including childhood abuse and males who have experienced sexual violence. 

Practice description

As a person-centred counsellor, I make our relationship a priority and know how much building trust enables you to open up, reflect and grow inner strength and resilience. I aim to create a safe space where you can feel comfortable bringing whatever you need to share. 

I take an integrative approach and although my practice is based on the core conditions of empathy, congruence and non-judgement, I will bring in different approaches from other theories such as CBT, positive psychology and psychoeducation to meet your needs and support you in the best way I can. 

I often consider core beliefs, how they impact your thoughts, feelings and behaviours in the present and how we can challenge these limiting beliefs. I believe that you have the capacity to change and grow and with the right support, you can become the person you want to be. 

My first session

I know how important it is to find the right therapist, someone you connect with and can build trust in so I offer a free initial consultation of around 20-30 minutes to see if you think we will be a good match to work together.
