About me and my therapy practice

Thank you for looking at my profile.  Based in central Darlington, with over 22 yrs experience, I aim to offer a warm and non judgemental experience where tears and laughter are both allowed. I regard my clients as the experts of their lives, and can help to unravel the complications that come along in life.

I'm a  BACP Accredited Therapist and qualified Supervisor, as well as a Registered Consultant (STR C)- and Sandplay Therapist (STR). My lengthy experience includes working in settings such as; University, Pastoral, EAP's and Private Practice, where I see adults and children.  Many of my clients have been students seeking Personal Therapy or supervision while training, and I offer consultancy and therapy to experienced Sandplay Therapists and those training in this field.

I have undertaken lots of training, including; Sandplay, CBT, Relational Trauma, Mindfulness, Group Analysis , Pastoral Counselling, Teaching in Further Education etc. to support my work, and have experience of working with a wide range of issues.  

What I offer most though is my presence and ability to be alongside you.  As Carl Jung said; "Learn your theories as well as you can, but put them aside when you touch the miracle of the living soul."
