About me

I currently work with another therapist running a therapy service in Bishop Auckland. We offer early morning, daytime and evening appointments.

I have worked in the therapy field for over 10 years with experience in the community, prisons, NHS primary and secondary health services and other community services including addiction services and hospices. In that time I have worked with clients with a broad range of presenting issues including anxiety, depression, bereavement, loss, relationship issues, addiction, work related stress, codependence, phobias, trauma amongst other difficulties. If you are unsure if I can help, get in touch with any questions you have.

We can have an initial discussion on the phone or via email if you prefer with no obligation. I can answer any questions you have and if you would like to go ahead, we can arrange and book a session.

Some clients come for short term therapy when they are stuck with a particular life event or difficulty. Others have worked with me more longer term depending on the presenting issue and what their goals of therapy are. If you havent had therapy before you may not know what to expect. We can discuss this, see how an initial session feels and go from there.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a fully qualified member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and have extensive experience working with a broad range of issues whilst working within the NHS, prison and charity sectors. Please see my website for more information. You are welcome to contact me if you have any questions.

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.
