About me

As an integrative counsellor we will blend a range of therapeutic methods and tools to establish understanding and awareness, as each person and their experience is different, this supports us to achieving whatever goals and objectives you would like from the sessions. 

I offer face-to-face sessions in Newcastle Upon Tyne and work remotely with clients across the UK.

I work with anxiety, depression, eating disorders, self-worth, abuse and trauma and how each client's thoughts and feelings impact their life, to move towards positive change, coping mechanisms and lasting difference for each person.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a registered member of the B.A.C.P working with adults children and young people. I specialise in abuse, trauma, self-harm, suicidal ideation, anxiety, depression, relationship with food and relationship with self. 

I look at ways we can support the sessions with tools and resourced to create a unique therapeutic relationship and personalised experience. Integrative CBT, psychodynamic, transactional analysis and built on a foundation of person centred values.

Exploring the client's thought processes and experience to find the best way forward using a vast range of therapeutic modalities and skills. 

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.

Key details

Wheelchair user access
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.
