About me and my therapy practice
Hello, thank-you for reading my profile.
Everyone goes through difficult times; sometimes problems affect day to day lives and you may feel you can’t always cope. Often it’s hard to talk about how you’re feeling to those closest to you. If you are in this situation, you are not alone. I offer a non judgemental, confidential space for you to explore your most inner thoughts, feelings and emotions. Talking therapy provides a safe environment for clients to explore issues from the past or current problems that are impacting on their lives.
As a person centred therapist, I use a variety of approaches including some CBT and creative media.
I’ve been providing counselling in an NHS setting across Teesside for the past 15 years. I’m semi retired from NHS therapy these days, concentrating on my private practice. I’m also counselling with a military workplace organisation and a neonatal charity which involves birth trauma.
I find clients often prefer the convenience of talking in their own home on a video call however I’m now also back to my normal service, offering 1:1 in a new office in Middlesbrough each Thursday.
My first session
After you have taken the first step of emailing or texting me, our first contact will usually be a phone assessment (no fee) which involves information collecting. The assessment takes around 30 mins and is a good time to see if we can work together. If you would like to continue we will then make an appointment for the following week.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
