I provide different options depending on your specific needs


Work with Adults

We all have times in our lives where we experience difficulties and challenges and need support.  I will work with you to identify the areas that you would like to explore together and using my training and experience I will suggest techniques, and new ways of being to help improve how you feel and think. 

I offer both long and short term therapy depending on your issues and financial situation.

I look forward to hearing from you and possibly working with you in the future.

Work with Couples

Maintaining a healthy and positive relationship can be difficult.  We can struggle with how to communicate, intimacy, parenting, conflict, trust, and tolerance. I can work with you both to identify these issues, supporting you to create better understanding and communication. 

I offer long and short-term relationship counselling depending on your issues and financial situation. 

I  encourage you to get in touch and take a positive step in helping resolve the issues that you are both facing.

Work with Young People

Teenage years and early adulthood can be a particularly tough time, while riding the waves and storms that life brings our way. 

I am a trained youth worker and have been supporting young people through counselling for the last 10 years. I am fun loving and creative and aim to help you to enjoy your counselling sessions, while understanding yourself and your emotions more fully. 

I would really like to hear from you. I know it can sometimes feel like a daunting process to start but I recommend you ‘feel the fear and do it anyway’.

Work with Students

Being a student can sometimes be really challenging. I offer a safe confidential space in the heart of Durham city, where you can share your difficulties and be fully listened to. 

I offer a reduced fee for students for day-time appointments between the hours of 10.00am-3.00pm.  Online or face to face counselling £40.00.

Please get in touch if you have any questions and to arrange your initial assessment.
