About me

I have worked in the field of psychological therapies since 2001 establishing a private practice in 2005 as well as working for a mental health organisation.

I am an integrative psychotherapist and certificated clinical supervisor currently working towards my diploma in supervision.

I offer therapy for individuals 18+ requiring short or long term interventions and I am based in the Norton and Stockton on Tees area.

I also have experience in providing individual and group clinical supervision.

My expertise includes mental health and emotional well-being, victim support, anger management, bereavement as well as working within primary care and (EAP) workplace services providing therapy to staff in NHS, Council, Police and Schools.

My approach is primarily person-centred and gestalt psychotherapy whilst incorporating cognitive behavioural therapy, transactional analysis and brief/solution focused therapy.

I believe and have the faith in that wherever we are in life there is always a way forward for us. Sometimes we need just a little support and a guiding hand.

'Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light'.
