Hello and welcome,
I am a warm friendly person offering a safe, confidential, non-judgmental space to explore any of your difficulties.
I usually work in an integrative way using different techniques of therapy depending on the individual. I can offer both short-term and long-term counselling work.
I have received couselling myself in the past for anxiety, social anxiety & depression which I found really helpful.
At present I am living in Spain therefor my sessions can be via Skype or the telephone, however I visit the UK frequently so it’s always worth asking about face to face.
(If you have nowhere confidential to talk via Skype I have locations throughout the North-East which I can hire for you. I also have venues throughout Mallorca, Spain).
I am a registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists, I abide by the BACP ethical framework. I hold a current enhanced disclosure with the Criminal Records Bureau.
Other things I went on to learn after graduating were; holistic health, nutrition, crystals, angels, spiritualism, the work of Dr Wayne Dyer (change your thoughts/change your world) & Rev' Louise Hay (you can heal your life), and Susan Jeffers (feel the fear & do it anyway).
The best way to contact me is via email as I removed my number due to the amount of spam I was receiving.

Prices- I believe counselling should be as affordable for everyone as possible so i aim to keep my fees as low as I can, my current rate is £25/€25 per 50 minute session via Skype & £30/€45 per hour if a venue is needed/face to face.
Cancellations policy- cancellations with less then 24 hours notice may incur a £10 / €20 cancellation charge which is to cover the room hire/fees & would need paid before the next booking is made.
Although I am mostly via Skpe I have different locations throughout the North-East of Enlgand or Majorca-Spain, I choose my venues because they are quiet and/or holistic.
