I am a registered accredited counsellor with the British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapist (BACP) and I am an Europe Accredited practioner with EMDR UK & Ireland.
Over the years I have been able to work clients with a range of complex mental health difficulties as well as support individuals in maintaining positive mental wellbeing. When I am not supporting individuals through my private practice I support individuals at Crisis Skylight in Newcastle, where I am able to support those who are homeless or are at risk of homelessness. I currently cover the South Tyneside area with a base in South Shields where i am able to provide a relaxed, confidential space.
I have experience of supervising counsellors/psychotherapists in voluntary sectors. Over the last 4 years in my role as a Mental Health Coordinator I have been responsible for managing our counselling service and supporting therapists who come from a range of therapeutic backgrounds.
I am experienced in working with supervisees from their intial training to supporting in achieving accredited status with the BACP, I continue to act as a mentor to therapists who are currently in the process of completing and submitting their accreditation.
