About me

Sometimes we all need someone to talk to, someone to really listen to us, to walk beside us as we explore our difficulties and find a way forward.  A safe place to talk without worry or judgement, centred around your own personal needs.

Counselling allows you to express and explore things that feel difficult for you in the here and now but also past experiences.  Sometimes past experiences can impact the present without you realising the connection between the two.  Counselling allows you to piece things together gaining a deeper understanding, creating a pathway for change, to find yourself and a new way forward.  Counselling can help us to understand ourselves at a deeper level, easing emotional difficulties that can arise for many different reasons and look at ways of coping that can help to maintain a level of calm.

I am a fully qualified Counsellor and registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), offering short and long term counselling.

The Person-Centred approach underpins my practice offering a warm, non-judgemental environment to explore difficulties, foster understanding and facilitate change.  Integration of other techniques such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT),Psychodynamic approaches and Transactional Analysis (TA) can be implemented when required.

I have gained a wealth of experience working with a wide range of issues including but not limited to, stress, anxiety, depression, trauma, abuse, bereavement, relationship issues, managing life changes and work difficulties in both specialist and generic organisations.

I am employed part-time with Alliance Psychological Services delivering primary care counselling in the NHS.  I have previously worked with Eva Women's Aid working with issues related to Sexual and Domestic Violence.

If you feel ready to talk an initial meeting can be booked where we can meet and discuss your needs.  Sessions for further therapy can be arranged following the initial meeting.  Appointments are available on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. I am placed centrally in Redcar, street parking is available and Home Visits can be offered at request.
