About me

I am a highly qualified counsellor who has a wealth of experience working with a diverse range of people and the whole of their issues. I offer a relaxed, safe and confidential therapeutic space to explore issues that may be troubling you in a caring, non-judgemental and accepting way. Feel free to contact me on 07933 709399 to discuss your needs.

I offer evening, weekend, early morning and daytime appointments. I work in the centre of Durham where there is FREE parking outside my premises. It is also on a bus route.

I understand that everyone can go through difficult times in life and we all can benefit from support in handling these challenges.

In difficult situations I aim to help you to:

  • Understand your issues
  • Clarify any confusion you may have
  • Feel more control in your life
  • Cope with your life more easily
  • Approach life with a clearer mind
  • Move forward with your life

Using a wide range of psychotherapeutic approaches, I can facilitate a deeper understanding of yourself. People I have worked with tell me their therapeutic experience with me has increased their confidence, self-awareness, personal growth and they have gained a deeper sense of meaning, purpose and contentment.

If you don't see your issue on this profile, please contact me to discuss your needs.
Phone today for a consultation with no obligation for further sessions.

I provide training and supervision opportunities for counsellors/psychotherapists.

Further information

I offer short and long term counselling or psychotherapy appointments.

Counselling is for short term issues. I recommend a minimum of 6 weeks

* Helps people identify problems and crises and encourages them to take positive steps to resolve these issues.
* It is the best course of therapeutic treatment for anyone who already has an understanding of wellbeing, and who is also able to resolve problems.
* Counselling is a short-term process that encourages the change of behaviour.

Psychotherapy is often used for longstanding personal issues, drawing insight into deeper emotional difficulties and looks at the foundation of the problem- a minimum of 20 sessions. I teach skills to help you manage difficult emotions more effectively and help with psychological problems that have built up over the course of a long period of time.

I can support you in choosing the best course of therapy:

* Cognitive and behavioural therapies (focusing on the way people think and behave)
* Psychoanalytic therapies
(looking at how past experiences affect the present)
* Humanistic therapies
(with a focus on self-development and growth)
* Arts therapies
(using the creative arts in a therapeutic way)
