About You

what can i do for you?

I offer a quiet space to help you to explore your current feelings while I support you through your journey, so that you feel less lonely. You will be heard, and together we can discover what may have caused your feelings and how you can make yourself feel better.

You can talk about the things you have never shared before, and you will never be judged.

Why you can trust me

I have been supporting people as a counsellor for 12+ years from many faiths; Jewish, Muslim, Hindu, Christian, agnostics, atheists and others.  I am a private practitioner based in Gateshead. I am an experienced counsellor, registered with the British Association of Counselling Professionals (BACP). In 2022 I achieved accredited status, so now I am an accredited counsellor/psychotherapist. I abide by the ethical code of the BACP which requires full client confidentiality, as well as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), so by law, all your information is safe with me. As required by the BACP I participate in a monthly supervision to ensure I am doing my job correctly. I am a BUPA registered practitioner.

Alongside this, I have an enhanced DBS clearance and I am fully insured by Therapist Insurance to practice face to face and online counselling.
