About me

Finding a therapist can seem daunting and taking that first step is courageous! I believe that therapy is about understanding yourself better; gaining tools and resources; and learning to make different choices about how you would like to live your life. 

I’m an integrative psychotherapist working with Transactional Analysis, CBT and Mindfulness. I also use a range of creative tools to help you to understand yourself and express your emotions. Perhaps more importantly, I provide a safe non-judgemental space that is for you.  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 have 11 years experience and have worked with a range of difficulties including abuse, anxiety, bereavement, eating distress, relationship difficulties and stress.

I offer face to face counselling/ psychotherapy in Newcastle City Centre and I also offer online sessions. 


Training, qualifications & experience

  • Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling from the Northern Guild for Psychotherapy and Counselling (2012)
  • Diploma in Psychotherapy from the Northern Guild for Psychotherapy and Counselling. (2021)
  • Breathworks Living Well Accredited Trainer (2011)
  • Diploma in Clinical Supervision from the Northern Guild for Psychotherapy and Counselling (2015)

I began my first counselling training in 2010 and finished my psychotherapy training in summer 2021. However, I believe that we never really finish training and we are constantly learning, particularly from our clients. Prior to formal counselling training I have had experience of working on telephone helplines.

I have offered counselling and psychotherapy in a number of settings, including GP practices, workplaces and through NIWE Eating Distress Service. 

I am also a director of Mindful Therapies, a not-for-profit organisation based in Newcastle that offers affordable mindfulness classes and courses. I also teach mindfulness to counsellors.

Key details

DBS check

In England and Wales, the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS, formerly known as CRB) carry out criminal records checks for individuals working with vulnerable groups, such as children. To find out more, visit gov.uk , or contact this professional directly

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.

I work from a space that has wheelchair access but this needs to be on prior arrangement. Please let me know when arranging your session if you need wheelchair access.
