About me

There are times in everyone’s life when things become too much. During these times it is important to know that you are not alone. It is helpful to share your thoughts and feelings as this can help to come to terms with life changing events. My humanistic person-centred philosophy places emphasis on the importance of the therapeutic relationship. I also use an integrative approach to my counselling so as to suit the individual needs of my clients. I offer both fixed time therapy and long-term counselling. I have experience working with people of all ages, from primary school age right through to adulthood.

I am an Accredited Member of The National Counselling Society and Breakfree Counselling Service is on the accredited register of the professional standards authority.

Our mission is to be there whenever you need us.

Training, qualifications & experience

I graduated from Sunderland University with a fDA in Person Centred Counselling. I have worked with children from primary school age to adults. I have worked within some well renowned counselling organisations in the North East and now provide counselling through my organisation Breakfree Counselling Services.

I am committed to personal and professional development through ongoing training.
