About me

Are your thoughts and feelings overwhelming you? Do you feel low or anxious; are you experiencing panic attacks, feeling exhausted, no motivation, tearful or struggling to concentrate? Sometimes our uncomfortable feelings are linked to an individual event, maybe a loss or a negative life experience. Sometimes an accumulation of things can build up over the years and we suddenly hit a tipping point. There are also times when we just feel terrible but have no idea why.

We can all experience these feelings at times as life throws us many challenges.  However, some challenges can be huge, frightening and impact on us in such a way that we find it hard to move forward.  It can also  be really hard to talk about our feelings so we learn to hide them. This can leave us feeling even more isolated and with the belief that no one will understand.  It can be really hard to carry all this stuff alone.

If this sounds like you,  then maybe counselling is something to consider.  It can be very useful if you’re feeling stuck, overwhelmed or alone with an issue. It is also a great way to explore and unravel your thoughts and feelings in a safe and confidential space.  Counselling can be a huge step towards self awareness and personal growth.

If you'd like to seek counselling please give me a call, email or text to establish if I'm the right counsellor for you.  I can offer you online or telephone counselling, so no travel required.  I’ll provide you with a warm, friendly and professional service.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a Foundation Degree in Person-Centred Counselling which I gained in 2014.  I'm registered with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and adhere to their ethics and principles.

I have a wide range of experience in counselling issues and have supported clients with: anxiety and panic attacks, depression/low mood, suicidal feelings, bereavement, anticipatory grief,  coping with life changes and transitions, involuntary childlessness, adult bullying, relationship issues, loneliness, loss of self identity or feeling lost, low self esteem/confidence, trust issues & domestic abuse.

I complete ongoing training for my personal development and also do my own research in my areas of interest.  My experience has shown me that counselling can bring about huge change and this motivates me to continue to learn and grow in my profession.

My most recent employment was with Tyneside and Northumberland Mind providing counselling on an Employment Assistance Programme for a Local Authority.  Prior to this I worked as a Student Counsellor at Newcastle University and also at a local Sixth Form College.

I have also worked as a Community Wellbeing Officer in a Social Work team for 21 years. This role has given me a wealth of invaluable experience in working with people and supporting them through difficulties times. I have a wide range of knowledge and understanding of the issues we can face in life from this role.  I feel this has greatly supported me as a counsellor.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
