I am a qualified counsellor with over 10 years experience. I am accredited and registered member of the BACP.
I predominantly work in a Person Centred approach but I incorporate aspects of Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and Solution Focused Therapy if it would benefit you. I also use Play Therapy with children and young people.
We all have times in our lives when things are difficult or something is causing distress and worry. It can help to talk, in confidence, to someone professional and experienced who won't make judgements, but will accept you for who you are. I offer a safe, secure space to look at what is causing you concern.
You can contact me via email, phone or text.
Our initial consultation will look at a brief overview of your concerns, your hopes and goals for the therapy and our comparability to work together. Each counselling session lasts up to an hour and are usually held weekly. I work long term and short term, to suit you. A limited number of appointments are available out of office hours including some evenings and Saturday morning.
I have extensive experience of working with all manner of issues.
I adhere strictly to BACP ethical code of practice.
My office in Stockton is wheelchair friendly.
