About me

Personal private therapy in a quiet location in South West Durham area.

I provide therapeutic counselling for a range of issues and presentations utilising the assorted tools I have developed through many years working with a range of clients.

Acknowledging the individuality of each client is paramount. What feels comfortable to one person may fill another with dread. Therefore I maintain a holistic approach and focus on enabling and empowering individuals through a range of talking therapies and use of mediums such as drawings and diagrams as appropriate.

I have worked with traumatised individuals since 1991. Predominantly victims of crime and those experiencing loss through sudden fatality.

All counselling work undertaken subject to acceptance at initial assessment.

Outreach available in some circumstances. Telephone counselling on request.
