About me

I understand that taking the first steps towards change is hard and sometimes scary but I hope that my approachability and humour can make this experience a positive one.

I am an integrative, person-centred psychotherapeutic counsellor and Psychotherapist and I offer both short-term counselling and long-term depth psychotherapy. I believe that the relationship between the therapist and client is the most important part of therapeutic work and within a safe space, I will provide a trusting environment for you to explore whatever it is that you are struggling with.

Before choosing a career as a counsellor, after graduating with my Bsc Hons in Psychology I gained experience within the psychology departments of local prisons before moving into the police for many years. I then made the decision to train as a counsellor/Psychotherapist and that brings me to where I am today. My past career choices do still influence my work today and I have a special interest in trauma work in all different forms, whether that be PTSD, childhood trauma etc.

I have chosen the Sunderland Quaker Meeting House and Jesmond Therapy Centre as my places of practice as both buildings have a lovely serene quality and both have on street parking available.

The surrounding area is beautiful and relaxing at Sunderland Quaker House with Roker Park on the doorstep and Jesmond Therapy Centre is sat just off Osborne Road with easy Metro links and cafes.

If you read through my profile and feel that you want to contact me; you can send me a text, email or leave a voicemail and I will get back to you.
We would arrange a free informal telephone discussion to enable me to find out a little bit about you and enable you to ask any questions you may have. Following this, we would arrange for a face to face assessment session, during this session we could discuss in detail you're goals and expectations in safe and comfortable surroundings. Any subsequent sessions after this cost £45 - £51 (depending upon whether you are seen at Sunderland or Newcastle) and last for 50 minutes.
