I am a qualified relationship and family counsellor, practising at Relate Northumberland and Tyneside, and also offer confidential individual, couple and family counselling close to Newcastle upon Tyne city centre, Morpeth and Tynemouth.
People’s needs are all different and change over the course of counselling. My approach integrates elements of person centred, systemic, psychodynamic and behavioural therapy as appropriate to your needs at any one time.
Areas I can help you with are:
Preparation for Commitment
Managing Separation and Divorce
My qualifications and a snapshot of some of the additional training I am required to do each year are below.

It’s important to me to make a positive difference to our local and international community and as well as striving to help my clients I donate 5% of the cost of each session you attend to these charities:
Children North East is a local charity that promotes the rights of disadvantaged children and young people, their families and communities.
Unicef is the world’s leading organisation for children in over 190 countries.
