Hello and WelcomeAre you feeling unfulfilled or unhappy? Feeling lost and unsure of who you are?
Are you living your life to its fullest potential and achieving your hopes and dreams? Or perhaps not?
Do you find yourself saying 'Yes' when you really want to say 'No'.
Are you stuck in a revolving situation that repeats in many different yet familiar ways?
Our thoughts influence our feelings and thoughts can cause unhappiness for so many of us. We learn beliefs throughout childhood which then influence our adult years. Some of these beliefs will be helpful. However many of them will not be helpful and may be old and outdated.
Therapy is a process and the journey of exploring who you really and truly are, bringing the potential for change that can turn your life around only when you are ready, willing and prepared to face your true self.
A little about me as a TherapistI have 22 years experience in total as a Counsellor.
I was a Harm Reduction Counsellor in a Substance Misuse Charity (12 years).
Lead Counsellor in a Young Persons Sexual Health Service (13 years).
Lead Counsellor in a Sight Loss Charity (19 years) and a Counsellor in Higher Education (5 years).
I offer Counselling and Psychotherapy sessions near Blyth, Northumberland which is near Newcastle.
I aim to be open, empathic and accepting. To help you feel able to explore whatever is causing you pain, distress or unhappiness in life.
I encourage you to explore what you believe and how you see the world as this may be getting in the way of your growth and reaching your personal goals. Our busy lives do not always allow time to pause, stop and be still. As these are the times when we feel at our most peaceful and aware - bringing this practice into our daily life is so very important for us.
Space in a therapy session can assist this greatly.

Who do I see?I see individuals (from 16 years of age upwards) and couples. I can offer Face to face sessions, telephone sessions and FaceTime or Skype sessions.
I offer sessions in a peaceful and calm space for both individuals and couples and I also offer outdoor therapy sessions. for individuals.
An outdoor environment can allow nature and space to impact the therapy and moving whilst walking and talking can encourage expression of feelings and emotions that may be accessed more easily for some clients outdoors than it is in a therapy room.
Please feel free to email me or contact me by telephone if you would like to know more about Outdoor Therapy.
