I am a qualified psychotherapeutic counsellor. I trained in Newcastle-upon-Tyne at the Northern Guild for Psychotherapy and Counselling (accredited by UKCP). Apart from holding the Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling, I also completed a One year course at Leeds Metropolitan University under Robin and Jane Walford and have a Certificate in Transactional Analysis.
For 5 years I have been working with Bereavement Care now The Herriot Hospice a Northallerton based Charity as a volunteer counsellor. I have also worked for the last year at an NHS GP practice in Middlesborough receiving many and varied referrals before setting up her own private practice in North Yorkshire.
I am CRB checked and have professional insurance cover.
I work with men and women of all ages and from different areas of life. I have supported clients involving a wide range of emotional struggles e.g low self confidence and self esteem, depression, anxiety, bereavement, anger, social isolation, ageing, relationship issues, struggles arising from chronic illness/conditions, work-related stress, separation, divorce and trauma.
My strength is in developing a trusting and empathic relationship with the aim of achieving the desired changes as efficiently as possible using my experience, knowledge and skills to the best of my professional ability.
