About me and my therapy practice

Thank you for looking at my profile.  Based in central Darlington, with over 20 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.
