About me and my therapy practice

I am a qualified and experienced person centred counsellor, offering online , telephone and face to face therapy in the North Shields area.

I have been a qualified  Person Centred Counsellor for many years, which includes working with the Samaritans, NHS, Drug & Alcohol Services, Women’s Health, Relationship Issues, Miscarriage, Bereavement, Trauma, Anxiety and Depression.

I work at your pace, specialising in depression, trauma, anxiety, addiction, relationship and emotional difficulties.

Past trauma or life events may feel difficult to cope with and leave you feeling anxious, depressed or stuck in unhelpful patterns of behaviour causing you conflict and anxiety.

If you are considering counselling for the first time or have experienced therapy in the past or have struggled to find a solution that feels right for you, taking that first step is often the most difficult. Asking for help is a sign of strength.

I offer a free telephone consultation, allowing you to speak to me directly. Together we will find a style or integrative approach to therapy which best meets your needs.

I can provide you with a safe and confidential space to explore what it is that has brought you to therapy and together we can explore new ways to improve your self awareness which can empower you to alter unhelpful emotions and repeated behaviours that may dictate your life.

Practice description

When you take the brave step to ask for help, I would take the time to work at your pace and can offer a professional, trusted, non- judgemental and confidential relationship where you can feel safe to explore your difficulties.

I would be honoured to take those first steps with you to improve your psychological well-being.

Sharing your problems, safely and constructively with me is taking your first step to building on your own self awareness and acceptance.

My first session

A free telephone consultation would give you the opportunity to have a chat to me about what you are looking for and to ask any questions you may have.

It would be a no obligation chat allowing you to make your own informed decision as to whether or not we could move forward together.

After this, we would have an initial assessment and this would help your decision on deciding if I am the right therapist for you.
