About me

I am a BACP Senior Accredited Counsellor and Psychotherapist with over 35 years experience of working with adults, employees, couples and young people in a variety of settings. My practice is generic and based in a private therapies centre within a large GP practice in Central Newcastle upon Tyne. There is plenty of car parking nearby and the centre is only a 5 minute walk from Monument or Haymarket Metro/Bus stations. However I am currently offering remote appointments by telephone or video conferencing.

My background was originally in Psychology (Newcastle University) followed by guidance in schools and higher education. During the 80's I undertook professional training in Counselling and Psychotherapy at Durham University and since then I have been engaged in practising, teaching and supervision.

I am skilled in and feel comfortable with using a variety of different approaches to therapeutic work and describe myself as 'eclectic' which means that I am able to offer effective therapy for most common problems and life issues. Following the introductory sessions, I aim to be clear and transparent about the approach or approaches I believe to be the most suitable. These are explained to the client in a straightforward way so that he or she can participate in choosing a way forward.

I offer both short term focussed or goal oriented work and long term open ended work depending on the needs and budget of the client. In short term work (up to 12 sessions) there is generally a clear aim or goal agreed at the beginning which is reviewed from time to time to check on progress towards it. In longer term work, goals are also helpful but there may be more time available to explore the client's past experiences and link them to current difficulties. Understanding how problems have arisen in the first place can be reassuring and provide a solid base from which to plan new and more positive coping strategies for the future. (It is also usually possible to include some past - present work in shorter term therapy.)
