Counselling and Psychotherapy for Prudhoe and surrounding villages, Corbridge and Hexham.
Welcome to my Website
I am an experienced psychotherapist and counsellor working in Prudhoe, Northumberland. I have been working in private practice for many years now, although only three years here in Northumberland, having relocated from Hampshire.
In these pages I have tried to give you a sense of myself and my psychotherapy practice. Please email me if you have any further questions and I will try to answer you by the next working day.
Talking things through with family and friends can be helpful; but have you found yourself holding back from sharing your experience for fear of hurting them or being too much for them? Being able to talk things through with a psychotherapist or counsellor can enable you to talk more freely and gain a greater understanding of yourself and your situation. Within the safe, calm and supportive environment I offer, we can explore your experiences, and by increasing your awareness, we can work towards long lasting change.
Although I only now work in private practice, I have extensive experience of working within the NHS as a Primary Care counsellor. Here I worked with clients experiencing depression and anxiety; sometimes due to longstanding issues and sometimes as a result of recent life events. In addition, I have significant experience of counselling clients who wanted help to reduce or manage their alcohol use, alongside addressing any underlying trauma that can trigger substance misuse.
What brings you to my website may be issues from the past that are interfering with your ability to live life as you would like to. Or you may be struggling with relationship issues. You may be feeling loss through bereavement, infertility, divorce or other significant changes in your life. Perhaps you are feeling overwhelmed by life's challenges; feeling depressed, stressed or anxious.
Or you may not be sure what the problem is but have a feeling that things are not quite right. If any of this resonates with you please do get in touch.

I also work with clients who just have a sense that life could be better.
Working together we can gain greater insight and understanding of your experience; exploring your situation and what it means for you. I will support you to identify and try out different choices you might want to make.
