About me

I am able to offer you the opportunity to explore your inner thoughts and feelings in safety and confidence helping you to make sense of what is going on in your life. This could be anything from day to day worries, to stress, anxiety or depression; you may be faced with a life changing event, relationship or family issues.

I will listen to you attentively, looking at the issue from your point of view, helping you explore choices you have, changes you may want to make and develop strategies to cope in the future. My therapy room is tranquil, private and peaceful.

A broad range of therapeutic approaches are offered including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Person Centred and the more holistic approaches such as Mindfulness. Therapeutic techniques are an individual process which is driven by your input and development, we will be working together to enable effective change.

I am also a qualified EMDR therapist - please ask for further details.

“Mindfulness means paying attention in a particular way; on purpose, in the present and non-judgmentally”                                                                                                                  Jon Kabat-Zin

Set in the beautiful backdrop of Teesdale, our walks offer you the chance to combine mindfulness with walking.
