About me

I am an experienced therapist and trainer having worked in the counselling sector for over twenty years providing therapy to a wide range of clients from many statutory and voluntary services. My preferred way of helping people to help themselves is through a Human Givens approach. This approach is a set of organising ideas influenced by the needs of any individual for security, attention, autonomy, a sense of community, status and meaning; and the resources we have to meet these needs.

As a Human Givens therapist I offer reliable and practical help for a broad range of issues, using the best current psychological knowledge about resolving difficulties. I can help you move on with your life as quickly as possible.

A combination of Solution focused, CBT, Mindfulness, relaxation and visualisation provide a rich resource to draw from to treat:- Depression, Panic attacks, Phobias, Anxiety and Stress, Addiction, OCD. My particular area of interest and experience is in working with trauma; many of my clients include veterans and others suffering from PTSD.
Everyone's situation is different, but I aim to take as few sessions as possible, people rarely need more than six sessions to make significant progress and lasting improvements.

Training, qualifications & experience

I achieved my M.A in Counselling from the University of Durham 22 years ago, since that time I have added training in many counselling models through ongoing CPD. I gained my Human Givens Diploma seven years ago and gained practitioner status five years ago.

My past experience includes managing a voluntary counselling service providing therapy to clients and training for counsellors, Work as a drug and alcohol counsellor for the NHS, Working with clients from a G.P's practice, Therapist at Hartlepool Mind, Therapist for PTSD Resolution providing therapy for veterans.
