About me and my therapy practice

I am trained in person-centred counselling and have worked with people for over 15 years.  This is in-depth training over a 2-year course which includes working with comparative theories. 

Since qualifying, I have completed training in many more modalities, including CBT, EMDR, NLP and more recently completed a hypnotherapy diploma. All can be done online or face to face in Wallsend. 

Counselling is a personal experience and if you have a consultation with me, you will decide if I am the therapist for you.

In the FREE consultation I will decide the best way to work with you based on your needs and explain what to expect.  I am completely transparent and open to whatever you bring to counselling. 

I work online and face to face.

Please book in using my online booking form on my website booking page for your first FREE consultation. 

Practice description

My specialism is working with trauma and related conditions such as PTSD, C-PTSD, anxiety, depression, OCD, working with pain management, the reasons for using alcohol and other addictive life-avoiding things such as shopping, gambling, smoking or vaping, sex, food, gaming, watching series and any other habit you may have not listed here.

If you are having problems with relationships or work issues I have a wealth of experience in occupational health, now known as EAP.

I have helped many people in toxic situations with their partners and marriages to find a way to either stay with their partners and change the dynamic or find the courage to leave and start a new life.

If you have ADHD, autism or a personality disorder, you are in good company here.  

If you have been a victim of toxic masculinity and are a man, a woman or non-binary, you are welcome and I promise you will be understood.

I will help you move on with any feelings of guilt or shame,without judgment.  You only need to be open to changing your beliefs.

I work with suicidal clients and have a wealth of experience of working with suicide.

The main thing to understand about working with me is that I will offer a bespoke service to you for your unique needs, problems and concerns and you will not be judged. 

PLEASE NOTE: This is not an emergency service. If you can not wait for a session, please call the Samaritans on 116 123 or if you are suicidal and can not wait, go to A & E.

My first session

I work with brief therapy contracting up to 8 sessions, depending on your needs.  If needed we can contract for another block.  This is a great way for you to work towards the outcome you want and have an end point to the work. Sometimes the one session is enough to review your situation and that is OK too. 

The first session is a consultation to give you a chance to explain what you want from counselling.  I do not charge for this session.

You will find the session beneficial because it helps you review where you are with the problem or concern.

If the thing you want to talk to me about is not on the list, don't worry that list is just a guide. 

If you want to do the first session on Zoom, face to face or on the phone, they are all possible ways for us to get started.  The only way to do your first session is by booking on my booking page, which you will find on my website.
