About me

I am a chartered counselling psychologist registered with the British Psychological Society (BPS). I currently work as a specialist counselling psychologist for the NHS within a pain management service in County Durham and I work privately in both Durham and Darlington.

I am a trained cognitive behavioural therapist (CBT)and EMDR practitioner and up until recently I worked for an affective disorders team in County Durham. During my time with the affective disorders team I worked with service users who were experiencing mental health difficulties such as depression, anxiety, personality disorders, psychosis, OCD, PTSD etc.

Prior to this I worked just under 6 years within an IAPT (increasing access to psychological therapies) service. Within the IAPT service I worked with individuals who were experiencing common mental health difficulties such as depression, anxiety, phobias, OCD, PTSD etc.

During my doctorate in counselling psychology training which I completed in 2012, I have been fortunate enough to have had the opportunity of working in an array of different settings both long term and short term with a variety of mental health difficulties. These have included the voluntary sector - bereavement, domestic violence services, and within police custody.

Court Reports

In addition I complete reports for the courts on a regular basis within the United Kingdom. These reports are completed for local and national solicitors.

Further information

I am currently training in cognitive analytic therapy (CAT) with intensive weekly supervision. CAT as described by ACAT (its regulatory body):

"CAT stands for cognitive analytic therapy; a collaborative programme for looking at the way a person thinks, feels and acts, and the events and relationships that underlie these experiences (often from childhood or earlier in life). As its name suggests, it brings together ideas and understanding from different therapies into one user-friendly and effective therapy.

At its heart is an empathic relationship between the client and therapist within the therapeutic boundaries, the purpose of which is to help the client make sense of their situation and to find ways of making changes for the better."

Should you feel that you may benefit from CAT Therapy then please do not hesitate to contact me for a discussion. CAT Therapy does require a commitment of 16 sessions and because I am still in training these would be offered at a reduced rate of £45 per session.
