About me

Hello and Welcome

I am a highly qualified psychotherapist and Counsellor who has a wealth of experience working with a diverse range of mental health issues. I offer a relaxed, non-judgmental and safe therapeutic space in which we can explore issues that may be troubling you in a caring and supportive way.

Choosing a counsellor or therapist is a big decision and it is important to feel that the person you choose is right for you.

I am passionate about your issues and want to fully understand what brings you to therapy. In this therapeutic journey, you can be sure that someone is really listening to you, engaging with you and progressing at a pace that is comfortable for you. With understanding and encouragement to be who you are, we will chart a course that will help achieve your individual needs and goals.

As a therapeutic counsellor and integrative psychotherapist, I combine a number of therapeutic models to provide a bespoke response to your needs (using many different theories and methods, depending on which will be most beneficial to you at this time). Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), Existential therapy, Gestalt therapy, Humanistic therapies, Person-centred therapy, Play therapy,Psychodynamic therapy, Solution-focused brief therapy, Transactional analysis, Phenomenology therapy ('here and now', body-mind).

I have worked with people with a wide range of problems including anxiety, depression, stress, grief/loss, panic, trauma, abuse, identity and relationship issues.

I am a registered member of the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

I work in accordance with their ethical principles and codes of professional conduct. I also hold an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) certificate. As an accredited member of the UKCP and a member of the Northern Guild for Counselling and Psychotherapy, all my work is supervised.

I have work experience in NHS Primary Care and Mind mental health charity, Talk Works. I am currently a mental Health Mentor with students in Tyne & Wear Universities and have a private practice providing short, medium and long-term therapy.

I have worked with a wide range of issues including stress, depression, anxiety bereavement, loss, relationship difficulties, sexual abuse, and trauma. I currently work with diverse groups including, LBGTQ, disabled members of the public, in a variety of social and cultural.

I offer evening, weekend and daytime appointments. I work in Newcastle City Centre,  Wallsend and Heaton

In the first instance you can call or email me to set up an initial session, where we will talk about what you want to get from therapy.  If you are happy to continue I will set up a second session and arrange to see you on what we decide will work for you.You are most welcome to contact me for an initial telephone consultation on 07954 135457 or E-mail me to discuss your needs.

I believe the therapeutic relationship between therapist/ counsellor and client is the centre of a healing experience.

I will help you to clarify your confusion, support you and help you to connect yourself with meaning and control.

In these difficult situations, I aim to help you to:

  • Express your thoughts, feelings, beliefs, and value
  • Understand yourself
  • Increase self-awareness
  • Develop coping strategies
  • Encourage you to believe in yourself and to understand that change can be possible
  • Understand your past and move on from the past
  • Create change in your life

I can also give you more information about the service and I can attempt to answer any questions you may have. I try to be as flexible as possible in arranging appointments taking into account your circumstances.

This first stage will be:

  • An introduction to the process and I can answer any questions you may have at that time.
  • Review and sign a confidentiality contract
  • Assessment is a conversation where I ask you questions about yourself, why you’ve decided to come to therapy, what your goals are and what you hope to achieve.
  • No therapy takes place at this stage
