About me

We can all experience difficult times in our life when we feel we need a little bit of help to get us through. For many different reasons we also sometimes don't want to, or feel able, to turn to family, friends or work colleagues for support. I have had my own experience of personal therapy and understand that it can feel quite daunting looking for counselling support. Counselling gives you your own quiet space and time to focus on you and your needs.

I can offer you a warm, confidential and non-judgmental space for you to feel comfortable and relaxed to explore your problems. My counselling experience has been working with adults, young people and older adults. I have worked with issues on loss, bullying, abuse, stress, depression, relationships, self esteem and confidence. This experience has been gained through  working for a number of organisations who support adults and young people with many of these issues.

My primary practice is the person-centred approach but I can also use some elements of a problem solving tool as well as some cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). This helps me to understand, with empathy, your experience from your perspective and helps us to work together to explore issues affecting you.

I offer one-to-one counselling in your own home, which covers the Tees Valley area, or at an office based in Hartlepool.


Through my own personal counselling I became aware of the powerful impact and natural healing of reiki. Reiki can be used for calming and relaxation purposes or becoming more connected to our mind and body.

I am currently qualified to Level II and can offer treatments individually or combined with counselling.

Member organisations


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.

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.
