About me

Chapters Counselling and Training provides a personal counselling service to people who wish to access a warm, safe relationship in which to explore their thoughts, feelings and behaviour without fear of judgement. We have a clear professional approach whilst maintaining a down to earth and human style of working with real people with real issues.

I work with local businesses and agencies to offer employer assistance counselling as well as with privately referred clients who choose to access counselling for themselves.

We also teach all levels of counselling training to those who wish to either have a taste of what counselling is all about or pursue a career as a qualified counsellor.

We have recently moved into new offices at Bede House, Newton Aycliffe, DL5 6DX.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a fully qualified counsellor (Dip.counselling), supervisor (Level 6 Cert in Therpeutic Counselling Supervision) as well as a qualified teacher (C&G 7407 and Cert Ed),I am a Senior Accredited counsellor with the BACP - MBACP(Snr Accred) and a registered independant counsellor on the UKRCP register. I have an up to date enhanced DBS check and all relevant insurances.

I have taught counselling for 15 years and 9 years ago left my job to set up my own business delivering high quality, private counselling and training at all levels. I teach, supervise and counsel predominantly using the Person-Centred approach but am always guided by the needs of the clients and students, so can utilise skills from other approaches as and when appropriate.
