About me and my therapy practice

I have a Master's degree in Counselling and have been accredited with BACP since 2004.  I have over 20 years of experience as a counsellor, and work privately with a wide range of clients.  I also supervise other counsellors and support workers working within different contexts.  I currently work two days per week in a doctor's surgery, and previously I was employed by Durham University as a student counsellor. Primerily 'Person Centred', I work with clients to help them explore and identify ways forward with their issues. I am non-judgmental, warm and supportive, and my aim is to empower others to take charge of their own lives and hopefully live more joyfully.  I am also interested in alternative therapies such as Reiki and Shamanism, and I enjoy working with clients who want to explore their own deeper existential and spiritual issues.
