About me and my therapy practice
Hello, I'm Heather and welcome to my profile.
Sometimes life can become overwhelming and difficult. Maybe you just need someone to talk and be listened to whatever is troubling you. I can help you explore your thoughts and feelings and help you see things from another perspective, enabling you move forward and take back the control and enjoyment in your life.
I have several years experience as a counsellor in educational and charitable settings and I run a private practice in Bishop Auckland and Darlington, where I see children and adults face to face.
I will provide you with a warm, comfortable and confidential space for you to talk and explore your thoughts and feelings without you feeling judged in anyway. I know how hard it can be to find the courage to take that first brave step in attending therapy as I too have sat in the chair as a client, which in turn took me on my own journey training as a therapist.
I am trained as an integrative counsellor with a CBT modality which means I tailor the therapy to suit the individuals needs of the client, as everyone is unique, so working together we can develop coping strategies & access the tools to help you manage whatever is occurring in your life.
