I am a qualified UKCP registered Counsellor and Psychotherapist. I work from an intergrative humanistic approach. My core model of training is Transactional Analysis which is similar to Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), however depending on the needs of the client I work drawing upon different theories and models. I offer short and long term counselling/ psychotherapy to adults (18+) at Azure Therapy in Whitley Bay. It is a beautifully furnished therapy centre that offers a relaxing, calm space in which to access psychological therapies.
I have worked in the field of mental health for over ten years. I have experienced personal therapy myself so I can empathise with how it feels to be in the 'clients shoes'.
I have experience of working with the following issues: depression, anxiety, panic attacks, relationship difficulties, abuse (sexual, psychological and physical), eating disorders, self harm, bereavement, post traumatic stress disorders and stress related issues.
I work in accordance with the UKCP code of ethics.
Our journeys through life are individual and at times challenging, counselling provides the opportunity to explore how we understand ourselves and how we manage these times.
