About me and my therapy practice

People seek counselling for many different reasons. Whatever your reasons I promise to meet you with empathy and compassion. I work from a client-centred perspective, meaning that your sessions will be tailoured to your unqiue needs. Whether you're struggling with depression, anxiety, family problems, or anything in between, we can work together to work through your troubles. 

I have a range of experience working with mental health problems such as depression and anxiety. There is no one thing that can help everyone, as such I have a wde variety of therapeutic tools that I can use to help you work through your issues. 

I also specalise in infertility counselling and women's issues. I hold an advanced diploma in fertility counselling.

Practice description

I offer in-person, telephone, and video chat sessions. I also offer a Walk and Talk style of therapy, which involves doing our sessions out in nature. The Walk and Talk is offered in the Chopwell Woods area, which is close to Consett, County Durham. Due to how cold it is in the winter, Walk and Talk is only available from April-October. Prior to Walk and Talk I require that we have at least one in-person or remote session and that you fill out a risk assesment form.

My first session

Prior to our first session I offer a free 15-20 minute telephone/video chat consultation. This is so that I can make sure that I'm the most appropriate person to help you. 

Our first full session will include a more detailed assesment, so that I can get a good idea of how you are starting out. This assesment will take roughly 20-30 minutes.
