About me

I am a Senior Accredited Counsellor and Psychotherapist with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.  I have been working privately and through many agencies for over 14 years.

I usually see clients on one to one basis.  I also work with couples to help with anything regarding their relationship.  I am experienced in working with individuals from 11 upwards, through school, college and university.

My main counselling practice is in the centre of Durham.  This is very convenient as there is parking near by and I am walking distance from the station and many of the university colleges.

I can also see clients in a private practice in Crook depending on availability.  If this is more convenient to you, please let me know.

My work with clients is confidential and I work according to the code and ethics of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP). As a member of BACP I am bound by its ethical framework for good practise in Counselling and Psychotherapy and subject to the professional conduct procedure therein.

Training, qualifications & experience

In April 2015 I gained my Senior Accreditation qualification having now worked with clients for over 14 years.
I trained at the University of East London and have a Post Graduate Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling Integrative).
I am a BACP Accredited counsellor.
I have also trained as a Couples Counsellor.
I was trained in four different theoretical models and approaches, which enables me to work with your unique and individual needs. I work therapeutically in a humanistic way which ensures my work is devoid of any religious influences or pre-disposed beliefs.
I have worked with victims of crime, abuse, rape and sexual assault and domestic violence.
In 2010 I obtained further qualifications in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy to an advanced level.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

Counselling can be as much about your own personal development as well as dealing with those unconscious issues that may plague you.
Through counselling I will help support you over your hurdles to obtain a better quality of life and peace of mind.
I can help you working through any sleep issues and concerns you may have and I can also use Mindfulness based techniques if these would seem helpful.
We can explore many ways to help you cope better with life in general.
