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 accredited 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.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
