About

Are you struggling with life? Perhaps you are tired of feeling anxious, low or have experienced a difficult life event which you are struggling to cope with. Do you find yourself consumed by worries and unable to break out of a negative cycle? Would you like a safe non-judgmental confidential space to be heard, understood and find new ways of coping? If so, then counselling may be able to help you find your way forward. I have experience of working with both adults and young people who experience difficulties ranging from anxiety, panic, worry, low-mood, grief, trauma to relationship difficulties.
I believe that we are all unique and a product of our own subjective experience. I work with you to find out what you would like to achieve from your therapy and tailor the sessions accordingly. I take an integrative approach which means I incorporate elements of different therapies such as CBT, Rewind Trauma and psychodynamic therapy on Person-Centred Base
Taking the next steps can be daunting, I offer a free 20-minute telephone or email consultation where we can have an initial conversation to see if I am appropriate for you and that we are the right fit. We can then meet either face to face in Darlington, over Zoom, by telephone or in nature walking and talking.
