About me

As a brief therapy formula: I work to assist you to release your EMOTIONS and then to PROCESS these emotions to help you reconnect with your affected self and move forward from any adopted NEGATIVE THINKING.

So what are Counselling and Psychotherapy and which is right for you?

Counselling is best suited to exploring our emotions connected to a situation or event. It can help to alleviate anxiety and low mood related to bereavement, a relationship breakdown, or a traumatic experience. Counselling can also provide a platform to explore and challenge our thoughts, feelings and behaviour that may have become negatively affected by our experiences. Metaphoric tools and realistic strategies can be introduced to assist in challenging negativity and help us to respond, think and behave in a different way - the end goal being to help us to take back control of our lives and move forward.

Psychotherapy focuses more on restructuring the personality or idea of self and sometimes our lives. This approach usually focuses on exploring our childhood experiences, upbringing, and our relationship history to determine and analyse how experiences of life have formed us as adults today. Healing begins once the underlying issues behind how we present today are identified and processed.

I work as an employed therapist for the NHS and as a self-employed mental health specialist and therapist for employees of two national companies.

I work with adults and couples from multiple cultures and social backgrounds, including non-English speakers, using interpreters.

As part of my career development I am presently studying for a MSc in Occupational and Organisational Psychology.

I offer private clinics in Newcastle City Centre and Sacriston, County Durham. Let’s know which geographical area, day and time suits you best and I will accommodate.

Feel free to text, call or email me. No charge for initial confidential telephone assessment. I look forward to hearing from you.

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Accessibility

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.
