I am a qualified relationship and family therapist, practising at Relate and in private practice close to Newcastle upon Tyne, Morpeth and Tynemouth. I offer individual, couple and family counselling.
Webcam and telephone meetings are also available, and for those who find it difficult to attend sessions at specific times I offer an email counselling service.
We all exist in relationship with others, at home and at work, and the health of these relationships affects our wellbeing.
I support people to invest in themselves and upgrade their relationships so they can be happier and enjoy life .. get in touch to discuss the changes you’d like to make.
Or if you’re ready to make some changes book a free discovery call with me to discuss your goals
