About me

I am a fully qualified and experienced Chartered Counselling Psychologist, registered with the Health and Care Professions Council and the British Psychological Society. I aim to provide a calm, caring and safe environment for clients to discuss and work through any difficulties they might be experiencing. I work in an integrative and collaborative way drawing on theoretical knowledge, models and skills which are suited to an individual client's needs and preferences. I offer psychological assessment, formulation and psychological therapy for a range of issues.

Although I work with a variety of areas/issues, I have a particular interest in working with issues which stem from early childhood such as trauma and abuse. I believe that working in a supportive and collaborative way we can develop understanding and awareness of the impact of our early life experiences on the ways in which we might relate to ourselves, others and the world around us. We can then work towards making positive and helpful changes leading to us thriving instead of just surviving.

Throughout my training and employment I have worked within a variety of settings including: the National Health Service, Primary Care Psychology, Learning Disability, Pain Management, MIND, women's only organisations and within Secondary School Education. I am now working within private practice and pursuing additional accredited training.

I currently have appointments available within the Durham area, and will have appointments available in the Consett area very soon. Please contact me to discuss your requirements.
