I am a qualified therapeutic counsellor with experience of working with a range of issues both privately and within the NHS. I am empathic and non-judgemental in my approach and believe in the importance of providing a safe space for individuals to explore issues and find what is right for them. I work with a range of issues such as abuse, anxiety, bereavement, low self esteem, relationship problems, work related stress. My approach is integrative and is guided by the needs of the individual. I am also a mindfulness practitioner and teach individuals how to use mindfulness and meditation to manage difficulties and live fuller, richer lives. I offer short term and longer term therapy.
I am the founder of Mindful Therapies, which offers mindfulness classes and courses within Tyneside. We also offer a low cost counselling service - http://www.mindfultherapies.org.uk/low-cost-counselling-service/
