About me and my therapy practice

I have been practising counselling/psychotherapy for 17 years in different settings; GP practices, Substance misuse services, community settings including school - working with individuals and groups of people including those with multiple complex issues. I work with adults and young people from approximately 11 years old.

Where clients are not adults I can contract to review the sessions on a regular basis to consider how the sessions are going and whether the young people are benefiting from the sessions from the young person and parent’s perspective.

I aim to provide a warm and comfortable space to bring all of the self. I believe that feeling safe and comfortable is essential to building trust in the work of counselling. I work in a very person centred way which means that I believe that we all have the potential to find our own way through our difficulties. However sometimes we need a therapist to help us to recognise, listen and respond to our more authentic inner self.

We all have many layers of experiencing in our lives no matter what our age is and this can affect how we respond to our current life situations. Counselling works within these layers to bring freedom to be the person that you want to be in the now and in the future.

I may offer reflections using tools from some other models where these connect e.g. CBT, TA, Person Centred Art Therapy skills etc

I love to work creatively including various media and objects which can bring greater and more spontaneous insight into the process. Words sometimes aren’t enough. However this will be offered and is not compulsory.

I currently work week days when my latest appointment is 4.30pm/5.00pm.

On Wednesdays I work from Sacriston Durham where there is ample parking and other days I work from home in Stockton on Tees, where I have a room set up for counselling and supervision and again parking is easily available.

About me and my therapy practice

I gained a certificate in supervision 2017/2018 with Jenny Biancardi. However I have been practicing in counselling/psychotherapy for 17 years in different settings; GP practices, Substance misuse services, community settings - working with individuals and groups of people with multiple complex issues. My particular interest is in this latter area currently and I am hoping to produce a training course which will help counsellor/psychotherapists to consider the different needs of this client group in their work e.g. work with trauma, practical issues and creative approaches

Since training I have enjoyed practicing supervision and encouraging counsellors in their work. My model is at core Person Centred, however I do sometimes draw from other models, including TA relationship models, CBT and action work. I also believe that supervision is a useful space to help workers to consider their own self care, nurture and professional development. I aim to provide a warm and comfortable space to bring all of the self.

I love to work creatively and supervision is an ideal space to experience this for yourself if you would like to introduce more creative ways of working into your practice. This could include using art or collage as a media for example or using things like sand tray work, stones, images etc. These can be particularly useful in supervision as we look at the relationship between client and therapist even if you don’t want to practice this way yourself. However this will be offered and is not compulsory.

I currently work week days when my latest appointment is 4.30pm and some Saturdays for those who can’t get time out of their job to be able to access supervision comfortably.

On Wednesdays I work from Sacriston Durham where there is ample parking and other days I work from home in Stockton on Tees, where I have a room set up for counselling and supervision and again parking is easily available.
