About me

I have run my practice successfully in Manchester and Stockport for over twelve years and am currently expanding into the North East at my new location in Whitley Bay, Newcastle Upon Tyne. I offer face to face, online and phone therapy.

I believe we all have unique abilities and the potential to solve our own issues, we just need support to remember that sometimes. When life throws hard times our way, or when we feel we're going round and round in a hamster's wheel, we can easily forget our own power and feel overwhelmed or powerless; stuck, at the mercy of events. Psychotherapy can be supportive in helping you resolve difficult feelings, gain a clearer understanding of your problems and chart a compassionate way through them.

I have a wide range of experience of working with people in the the public and private sectors and have practiced as a therapist for over twelve years. My early career was as a University Lecture in the Humanities and later as a treatment worker in a Drug and Alcohol Service, before training in counselling and psychotherapy. Following my real passion has been rewarding and satisfying on many levels and I am committed to supporting that in others.

Over a twenty year span I have worked with people and the families of those experiencing various addictions, both in formal and voluntary settings and while I know this area well my interests and expertise go much wider than dependencies alone. We all have relationships with many things - people, places and things, in our present and our past. Having these relationships work well for us, getting things straightened out, is vital to our feeling good about ourselves.

If you want to see whether I'm going to be the right therapist for you give me a call for an informal discussion.

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
