About me

I have been supporting people with a range of complex mental health difficulties over the last 12 years working in various mental health based settings such as the NHS and third sector services. I am currently offering online therapy/teletherapy and Face to Face appointments

My Background

I am am EMDR consultant/clinical supervisor with EMDR UK. Additionally I am an accredited counsellor/psychotherapist with one of the UKs leading professional bodies, the British Association of Counsellors and the Psychotherapists (BACP).

For over a decade I worked with a national charity called Crisis, supporting people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. My role as a Mental Health Coordinator involved supporting individuals with complex mental health issues. Prior to the this role, I was part of Chester-Le-Street and Durham City Mind, as a Counsellor, Hospital Discharger Worker at Lanchester Road Hospital and as a Trainer specialising in suicide awareness and prevention.

Accredited status represents a higher level of quality assurance than that afforded by a membership status. Accredited therapists have demonstrated professional standards of excellence in their practice to prove they are competent and experienced. BACP registeration number: 65168.

How I work
My practice is fundamentally client-centered, embracing creativity and flexibility by employing a diverse array of psychological approaches. I reject the notion of a one-size-fits-all method; instead, I prefer to collaborate closely with you to discover the most effective path forward. My toolbox includes a range of therapeutic frameworks, such as Gestalt psychotherapy, Person-Centered Therapy, Transactional Analysis, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and trauma-informed therapies like Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). My methodology is grounded in best practices, underpinned by published research and adhering to guidelines issued by the National Institute of Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE). 

I am currently offering: Zoom/video sessions also referred to as Teletherapy and Face to Face appointments.
