Hello, My name is Emily Duke.

 I’m a qualified and registered counsellor with the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP). I set up Turning Tides Therapy because I’m passionate about supporting young people, adults and couples to overcome difficulties and live more fulfilling lives. I’m based in Durham in the North East of England and provide  counselling, working face-to-face, and via video link and telephone.

I have been working as a counsellor for over ten years, working with a wide range of issues including; anxiety, depression, bereavement, relationship and communication issues, self-harm, low self-esteem and baby loss. I feel privileged that many different people have shared their struggles and journey with me. I currently provide counselling during the day and evening on a Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.
