I am a UKCP registered psychotherapist and psychotherapeutic counsellor and Clinical supervisor.
I trained at Northern Guild for Psychotherapy and Counselling and I have Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling, a Diploma in Psychotherapy and a MSc in Integrative Psychotherapy, Certificate in Couple Therapy and Certificate in Supervision. I have undertaken the OU/BACP coronavirus primer training in online therapy so I can offer this service as well as UKCP training for online work during coronavirus.
I offer bespoke therapeutic services either f2f, video or by telephone from my private practice based in Heaton, Newcastle upon Tyne to adult, individuals and couples. I provide short, medium and long term therapy driven by your needs. I offer a 15 minute free chat. The sessions are then, 50 minutes starting with an initial assessment.
My core training is in Transactional Analysis, and I use an integrative relational humanistic approach to therapy. This means that my therapy is guided by your needs. I use a variety of therapeutic approaches including gestalt therapy, existential therapy, guided imagery, metaphor, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and sand tray therapy. On occasion, I may also use other, more creative, methods to explore feelings that are more difficult to describe.
I have trained in couple therapy and am able to offer short-term therapy to couples as in my experience after 6 sessions couples have the skills and understanding of where they want the relationship to go.
I am registered with BUPA and therefore you can receive therapy with me this way if they are your insurer.
