About me and my therapy practice

I have noticed over the years that most of my clients come to me experiencing confusion and inner conflict. I see my role as helping them find clarity and inner peace through non-judgmental, empathic listening combined with the use of tools such as drawing, guided visualisation and EFT where appropriate. I work in a relational way which includes noticing and being present to the body as well as the mind.  My training was transpersonal, so I can work with a client's spiritual life if they wish to do so.  

Practice description

I have over ten years' experience working with a broad range of issues.  As well as my private practice,  I am on the counselling and wellbeing team for the Diocese of Newcastle and am also a qualified and experienced supervisor, having worked with both qualified and trainee therapists in individual and group settings.  

My first session

This session is about us meeting and seeing if we are a good fit.  I use the session to take a brief history of the client, so it is more structured than subsequent sessions when I will work with whatever the client presents with on the day.  I leave 10 minutes at the end of the session to check in with how the client feels about it and whether they would like to continue.  If they do, we will contract for 4-6 weekly sessions and follow this with a review to see where they are then.

What I can help with

Abuse, Anger management, Anxiety, Asperger syndrome, Bereavement, Cancer, Depression, Eating disorders, Loss, OCD, Personal development, Phobias, Post-traumatic stress, Redundancy, Relationships, Self esteem, Spirituality, Stress, Trauma, Work related issues

Clients I work with

Adults, Couples, Older adults, Young people

How I deliver therapy

Long-term face-to-face work, Online counselling, Short-term face-to-face work, Telephone counselling

Practice description

I have over 10 years' experience working with a broad range of issues (see below).  I am also a qualified and experienced supervisor, having worked with both qualified and trainee therapists, in individual and group settings.  

My first session

My first session is about us meeting and having a sense of whether we are a good fit and would be able to work well together.  In order to know this for myself, I use this session to take a history of my client, so this session is much more structured than any subsequent sessions, where I will be present to what the client brings on the day.  I allow ten minutes at the end of the session to see how it was for the client and what they would like to do.  If they would like to continue, we contract for 4-6 sessions on a weekly basis and then follow this with a review to see where the client is then.
