I am a fully qualified counsellor trained in person centred, psychodynamic & creative therapy, & Clinical Associate at The Clearing, Newcastle.

Therapy can be painful. At times it may seem that your mood deepens as we revisit & explore your more difficult life experiences. I will support you through this process & in time it will allow you to achieve personal growth, empowerment & ultimately well being. It would be an honour be to part of your therapeutic journey.

The first session with me is half price & thereafter you can get 25% off your next 5 sessions. Please visit our website for more information.

**Please note that due to the current COVID-19 crisis I am only able to offer online or telephone counselling.**

If you are unable to find a session time here that suits you, please email our Practice Manager at for assistance.

Therapy with me...

Therapy is like a bus journey. You have the key & will always be in the driving seat.

I’ll travel alongside you facilitating the therapeutic process & our journey will be at your own pace. We’ll move forwards & backwards exploring the map of your life, as we come to understand what it is that’s brought you here & what is required to help you to progress.

I work eclectically, incorporating creative techniques to aid you in your therapeutic process.


I have a wealth of experience in supporting children, adults & couples to overcome a wide range of issues such as bereavement, depression, anxiety, trauma, low self esteem & relationship issues..

I have worked as a specialist bereavement counsellor at a hospice for many years , in schools offering counselling to children from the age of 4 upwards & in private practice.

I am also a qualified clinical supervisor.

Areas of Expertise

I have particular experience in working with bereavement, difficult family dynamics & relationship issues.
