About me

People turn to counselling for a variety of reasons. Events may have occurred that have left you feeling confused, overwhelmed, sad or afraid. We all need a bit of extra help at times and counselling can be a place for you to make sense of what you are experiencing, make positive changes in your life and to increase your sense of well-being.

I will assist you to do this by providing a space where you will feel heard and understood. Where you are met with compassion and acceptance as I help you to try and make sense of your emotions so that life can begin to feel easier.

I am a humanistic integrative counsellor. This means that I place the building of a safe and trusting relationship with you central to my work, whilst integrating other approaches which I feel may be of benefit to you.

I am conveniently located just a short walk from the centre of Durham and I am also easily accessible by car or public transport.

Please visit my website for more information on how I might be able to help you.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a Masters Degree in Counselling & Psychotherapy and I am accredited with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

I have 10yrs experience of providing one-to-one support through a variety of different roles. Some of these roles include Victim Support and providing student support and staff coaching at Durham University. I worked as a Practice Counsellor for GP surgeries in County Durham for 4 years before leaving to dedicate more time to private practice.

I am trained to Master/Teacher level in the complementary therapy of Reiki. I can offer this as a stand alone therapy or it to be alternated with Counselling appointments if you wished.
