About me

Many people who seek counselling and psychotherapy are uncertain about how these services may be able to help them. I offer an initial free telephone consultation to find out more about you and the difficulties you are experiencing to help you decide whether I am the right person to help you. My therapeutic approach is to work collaboratively with you to help you reach a better understanding of the problems you are experiencing and to identify possible ways forward. I have a professional background in mental health nursing and social work with children and families. I currently work as a psychotherapist with adult clients only.
My core training as a Psychotherapist is in Transactional Analysis which focuses on raising awareness of how our thoughts, beliefs and feelings about ourselves and others may impact on the problems we are currently facing. I integrate cognitive behavioural and solution focused approaches when these appear helpful.

I have particular experience and interest in working with issues relating to trauma and abuse (PTSD/childhood abuse/rape and sexual assault). I also have experience in working with a range of mental health problems (depression/anxiety/phobias/OCD/eating disorders); bereavement and loss associated with chronic illness and disability.

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.
