About me

Hello and a warm welcome to this, my profile page.   I am a qualified Psychotherapeutic Counsellor, having trained at the Gold Standard Centre for Excellence, The Northern Guild of Psychotherapy in Newcastle upon Tyne, on a registered British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy [BACP] course. I am an accredited and registered member of the UKCP [United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy].  I am a member of the BACP and The Northern Guild.  

I am a trained EMDR practitioner and a member of the EMDR [Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing] Association UK & Ireland. I am also trained by Laurel Parnell from the Parnell Institute based in California, USA in Attachment-focused EMDR.

I hold Professional Indemnity insurance, registration to the ICO (Information Commissioner's Office) and a current DBS.

I spent 5 years counselling in primary care in a GP surgery, where I saw a wide client base who were referred to me by their GP.  I was Lead Psychotherapeutic Counsellor for a charity that provided palliative care and support to both patients with life threatening and life limiting illnesses and their carers.  I have a private practice where clients either self refer, or via their GP or third party/agency.

I use an integrative approach to therapy. Our therapeutic relationship is based on sensitivity, respect and an appreciation of all issues. Therapy is an opportunity for you to share personal difficulties with a trusted, professional and experienced psychotherapeutic counsellor.  I can provide the space and time for your personal growth as well as change. Therapy can help you understand the source of any distress or confusion you may be experiencing and if we can understand the reasons for these uncomfortable feelings it can often bring freedom, and the opportunity to consider an alternative way of being. If you feel depressed or just low, or are finding yourself overly worried or suffering from anxiety about life or aspects of life, click below to contact me.

I draw upon a range of therapeutic models from psychodynamic therapy to EMDR therapy and will select those that will be most helpful to you and through our therapeutic relationship I find most emotional difficulties can be overcome. I also use a variety of creative methods to aid self-expression; art, constellation work, stories and imagery therapy. Another therapy is Sand Tray Therapy; this can be of great benefit by exploring inner conflicts in a three dimensional and visual medium  I use a gentle, informal and relational style that suits most people.

I have specialist trauma therapy training and I am also trained in Attachment-focused EMDR and fully qualified in standard protocol EMDR [Eye Movement Desensitisation & Reprocessing] which is a specialist therapy that targets trauma, PTSD, phobias and anxiety.

I am a supplier of Touch Points, straps that are worn on either side of the body, generally wrists, that emit an alternate vibrating buzz,; they are worn to aid sleep and decrease anxiety.

I also offer Couples Counselling, Relationship Foundation Therapy and Relationship Conflict Management, including handling breakdowns constructively.   So if there is a relationship issue that you would like to talk about with an impartial third party, or if you are entering into marriage or a committed relationship and would like some relationship foundation therapy then contact me, click below to arrange an appointment.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

UKCP
UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP)

The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

BACP
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

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.
