Get to Know Me
I have been working as a therapist in private practice in the Middlesbrough area since 2014. I was previously based at Acklam Hall and I am now based at Park View Medical Clinic in Middlesbrough.
I can also offer sessions remotely to anywhere in the UK if preferred.
My main areas of work are phobia & fears, unwanted habits, and anxieties such as driving anxiety, fear of flying and similar. I also specialise in pregnancy & birth, supporting parents through the whole journey from pregnancy to birth and beyond.
I utilise a number of effective methods to keep you on track; including coaching, stress management, and confidence-boosting techniques. I work with each person as an individual and do not believe in one standard approach, so together we will find the best methods for you. I work in a straightforward, down-to-earth way. I pride myself on providing an open and honest, no-nonsense approach. I am pleased to say that clients usually tell me they felt really comfortable and at ease. I aim for a good success rate by only agreeing to work with clients if I feel my skills are matched to their issues. This way you can be sure that, while I can never absolutely guarantee success, I won't waste your time by agreeing to work with you if I am not sure I'm the right therapist for you!
