Your unique needs and goals are at the heart of our work together. I'm truly passionate about helping individuals like you unlock their full potential and become the best version of themselves.

Accredited CBT Therapist

I am a fully qualified and BABCP (British association of Cognitive and Behavioural therapies) accredited Cognitive Behavioural Therapist (CBT) and trained and experienced supervisor with almost twenty years’ experience working in a variety of mental health settings including NHS, Corporate and Private medical insurance along with experience of running my own private practice.


I work with a wide range of issues highlighted in the 'About CBT' section, however my true passion lies in working collaboratively with professionals who are navigating the complexities of juggling work and life pressures, often struggling with the weight of demanding expectations.

My approach to therapy is collaborative and client-centred. Your unique needs and goals are at the heart of our work together, and we'll progress at a pace that feels comfortable for you. Whether you're seeking relief from anxiety, looking to overcome depression, or striving to enhance your overall well-being, I'm here to provide guidance, encouragement, and unwavering support.

"I appreciate that reaching out can be daunting however I offer a safe space to work to support you to achieve your therapy goals at a pace that is right for you. I am passionate about helping people to be the best version of themselves."


Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

In the first session we will explore the problems and difficulties that you are experiencing to help me gain a comprehensive understanding of your situation allowing us to work together more effectively. Once we have identified the key areas we will collaboratively set realistic and achievable goals to provide a clear direction of our work together.

CBT is a collaborative process and your active participation is key however I am here to offer support, guidance and insight every step of the way.

As well as being a CBT Therapist I am also a HCPC registered Occupational Therapist and as such I adhere to both the BABCP standards of practice and the HCPC code of professional conduct.  I hold an enhanced DBS certificate, professional indemnity insurance and am registered with the ICO (Information Commissioners office) which is the UKs independent authority that oversees and enforces data protection laws and regulations.

I offer Cognitive Behavioural Therapy delivered both face to face and online via a secure video platform dependent on your choice. I offer face to face therapy in West Jesmond and Gosforth (close to metro stations and with parking close by).

You can also book a free telephone consultation with me to discuss how I can support you. You cab book a convenient time on line or drop me a message. 

I am a registered provider with Aviva, Axa, Bupa and Nuffield, as such I work with clients accessing therapy services through these organisations.
