About me and my therapy practice
Choosing a counsellor or therapist is a big decision and it is important to feel that the person you choose is right for you.
I offer a relaxed, non-judgmental, safe and confidential therapeutic space in which we can explore issues that may be troubling you in a caring and supportive way.
I am passionate about your issues and want to fully understand what brings you to therapy. In this therapeutic journey, you can be sure that someone is really listening to you, engaging with you and progressing at a pace that is comfortable for you. With understanding and encouragement to be who you are, we will chart a course that will help achieve your individual needs and goals.
I believe the therapeutic relationship between therapist/ counsellor and client is the centre of a healing experience.
I am a qualified Psychotherapist and counsellor who worked with a wide range of issues including stress, depression, anxiety bereavement, loss, relationship difficulties, sexual abuse, and trauma. I currently work with diverse groups including, LBGTQ, disabled members of the public, in a variety of social and cultural.
I have work experience in NHS Primary Care and Mind mental health charity, Talk Works, Mental Health Mentor with students in Tyne & Wear Universities and have a private practice providing short, medium and long-term therapy.
