About me

Whether you're struggling with a life event or ongoing issues, such as feelings of stress, anxiety, low mood or depression, I offer an empathic, confidential, non-judgemental environment to help and support you.

Your therapy is about you and no one knows you better than you know yourself.  I will not advise what you should do but help you better understand yourself, enabling you to make those choices and decisions. Your therapy sessions offer time and space for you to offload and be heard, to explore what has brought you into counselling and to help you better understand yourself and what’s happening for you.

Based in Durham city but also offering sessions at Ryton and Pelton, our first meeting will be a 50 minute assessment session (all subsequent sessions will also be 50 minutes). This will help us get to know one another, look at what you wish to gain from therapy and your expectations.   It also offers the opportunity to decide if I am the right therapist for you.

Taking the first step into therapy may feel daunting, so if there's anything you want to discuss, just call, text or email me. You can also find more information or arrange an appointment via my website.

"I'm waiting to listen, when you're ready to talk".
