About me and my therapy practice

Thank you for looking at my profile. Based in Darlington, with 25yrs experience, I'm a BACP Accredited Therapist and qualified Supervisor. I have vast experience of working with University students of all ages and employees in work-based settings.

I have undertaken many years of training to support my work, and have experience of working with a wide range of issues.

I aim to offer a warm, caring and non-judgemental environment where you can explore your concerns and find a way forward from your current situation.  

Practice description

Currently working remotely, via telephone or video call.  When face-to-face sessions resume, and clients prefer this, I work from a  location in the West End of Darlington.  

My first session

The first session will be an assessment, giving us both an opportunity to discuss what brings you to therapy,  and whether we feel comfortable working together.  You will be able to ask questions and only when you feel happy to work with me will we negotiate what that will entail; how regularly the sessions will be and what we are going to work on together.  I will suggest what I think may be helpful, but the decision lies with you.  This is your session, and your choice.

About me and my therapy practice

Thank you for looking at my profile.  I am a qualified supervisor and offer supervision for counsellors in training as well as experienced counsellors. I have extensive supervision experience in areas of the NHS, charitable and education sectors of counselling work.  I offer a supportive and safe space to explore your therapeutic work.  I believe it is vital to feel safe to fully use supervision for the purpose for which it is intended; safety for both client and therapist.  I get great satisfaction from watching the development of trainee and newly qualified counsellors through supervision and counselling practice.  For those more experienced counsellors and therapists I enjoy supporting the work of therapists in a collegial style.  Offering a non-judgemental space to explore your experiences within such an important role, allows you to work to the best of your ability with all your clients.

Practice description

Currently working remotely via telephone.  When face-to-face sessions resume, and supervisees prefer this, I work from a location in the West End of Darlington.  

My first session

The first session allows us to both get a sense of whether we feel comfortable working together.  Only when it is agreed that we would like to work together, will we contract depending on your needs.  This is negotiable, and can be revisited at regular intervals as needs change.
