I studied at University of Sunderland and gained B.A. (hons) in Counselling. For placement hours I worked at Butterwick Hospice Care and Place2Be in a local primary school.
I have worked with Sunderland Epilepsy Support Group, Making Connections (a neurological conditions support group), Bereaved Parents support group and Darlington Unity (an LGBT+ support group) before setting up private practice.
I have worked within therapeutic settings as well as schools and on occasion, provided home visits
Working with adults, young people and children I have special interests of loss & bereavement, end of life, anxiety issues and LGBT however, my main interest is of supporting clients, helping them understand, accept, resolve or live with the issues they bring to therapy.
I am qualified as an Integrative Counsellor with CBT as my core model, I work collaboratively with my clients and the sessions are client-led which means my clients always have control of their sessions and how they will be. Whether they want to talk, use tools and techniques or play within therapy sessions, they always make the decision.
Within the safety of the therapy room they can be as loud/quiet/silly/grumpy as they wish without fear of judgement.
My therapy room is based in Bishop Auckland however, I can also work within Darlington and Sunderland at an extra cost to cover travel.
