About me

I am here to help you increase your well-being and create your own life choices.  Sometimes working out what kind of therapy you want and who you want to see for it can be a daunting task. To help you, I've explained here the way I work and some of the reasons clients have come to see me in the past.

I work both with short term clients on single issues and with long term clients where challenges are more complex or intense. My commitment is to tailor the way I work to you, and to help you feel in control of what is happening so that the therapeutic relationship is useful and healing.

Clients come for a wide range of reasons, some of the issues clients frequently bring include:

  • Feeling low or depressed
    Feeling anxious or on edge (Generalised Anxiety Disorder)
  • Attachment difficulties
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder / Trauma
  • Relationship issues
  • Couples counselling
  • Emotional abuse, sexual abuse and domestic violence
  • Separation and divorce
  • Low self-esteem
  • Lack of self-worth, and identity issues
  • Grief and bereavement
  • Panic disorders
  • Stress
  • Phobias
  • Addictions
  • Sexuality and sexual difficulties
  • Chronic fatigue syndrome and chronic pain

It is not possible to give an exhaustive list here, you may want to talk about something you don't see mentioned. We are all unique, and our needs are no less individual. My role is to help you unfold and move along the path that is right for you.

I have particular specialisms in working with relationships, seeing both individuals and couples, and in healing trauma, whether caused by traumatic events or by attachment difficulties.

Therapy supports you in working out what is happening for you at the moment and in finding your own way forward. You can expect my undivided attention to help you make sense of what you need and want. I will creatively support you as you explore your current challenges and, if you want to, begin to make changes that leave you feeling better.

For some people it is enough in therapy to learn to cope with what you find challenging; for others therapy is about personal change and putting painful symptoms into the past. People seek support not only to help them through emotional difficulties, but also to enrich and enliven the lives they lead.

I am a Psychotherapist, EMDR therapist and Couples Counsellor working with private clients. I hold UKCP Accreditation, am a BACP Registered Psychotherapist and am Accredited to provide EMDR by EMDR UK&Ireland. I work with Mindfulness with clients where appropriate. I am an NLP Trainer, and use a range of approaches that engage the unconscious, including metaphor, working with bodily experience, and hypno-psychotherapy.

Training, qualifications & experience

I work full time as a counsellor, during my career I have supported over a thousand clients, some for short periods of time and some over the long term. I work in Sheburn Village, easily accessible from Durham City less than 2 miles away.

My early training was in NLP-psychotherapy (Neuro-linguistic programming) and hypno-psychotherapy, I went on to become a UKCP Registered Psychotherapist and Registered BACP Member. I draw on a range of approaches including Gestalt, Transaction Analysis, Symbolic Modelling, CBT, Existential and Psychodynamic. My main motivation is to give clients the particular kind of support that will most help them.

I am trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprogramming), a therapy which helps clients with attachment issues, events from the past, and worries about the future that are intruding on their day to day life causing distress. I am accredited by EMDR Europe as a Practitioner of EMDR.

I trained as a Couples Counsellor through Jesmond Therapy Centre and work with couples as well as bringing my couples counselling knowledge to my individual work.

I am a Clinical Supervisor and provide support to both counsellors and psychotherapists to enable them to be at their best with their own clients.
