I am a Humanistic and Integrative Psychotherapist. My therapeutic approach is to work collaboratively with clients to help them reach a better understanding of the problems they are experiencing and to identify possible ways forward. My core training as a Counsellor and Psychotherapist has been in Transactional Analysis (T.A.) which utilises theories of child development and attachment to provide a framework in which to understand how we develop our understanding of ourselves and our relationships with others. I integrate solution-focused and cognitive behavioural approaches when these appear helpful.
I began my professional career as a mental health nurse and later trained as a social worker. I retained an interest in mental health, primarily working with families impacted by parental mental health difficulties. I then worked in therapeutic services offering a range of counselling and therapeutic support to children and young people who had experienced trauma and abuse. I have worked as a counsellor and psychotherapist in NHS primary care services and for an eating distress service. I currently work as a therapist in a Counselling and Mental Health Team at Newcastle University.
I have considerable experience, and a particular interest, in working with adults and young people who have encountered trauma and abuse.
I use rooms at Durham City Physio in Durham City, and The Road Centre in Chester-Le-Street for my private practice.
I offer a free (30 minute) telephone assessment, by appointment, to discuss your therapeutic needs and to explain the approach I would take in any subsequent sessions offered.
