About me and my therapy practice

Hello there, Thank you for viewing my profile. I am an accredited counsellor with the BACP with up to 10 years experience supporting people in improving their mental health. When I am not in private practice I've been able to develop myself as a counsellor/psychotherapist in my role with a national homeless charity in Newcastle as a Mental Health Coordinator. My psychological approach is based on best practice, published research and guidance issued by the National Institute of Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE).

I'm an integrative psychotherapist which means I bring in many different psychological approaches in order to best support you. I have trained in Gestalt Psychotherapy, CBT, and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing therapy (EMDR). I currently offer 60 minute appointments and have a practice in South Shields and Chester le Street. For a list of my Continued Professional Development please visit my webite.

I am passionate and committed in supporting you in what may be a difficult time in your life at the moment or if you are looking to develop personal growth. I welcome you to contact me where I would be happy to discuss further, my prices are also negotiable depending on your financial circumstances.
