Talk Durham offers private therapy in central Durham and operated with no waiting list.
For those who find the presence of animals supportive and calming please note that Monday appointments have my dog, Lola, in residence.
As a Doctor of Counselling Psychology, I have spent over ten years in academic training and clinical practice.
I made it a personal goal to work across different settings and with age groups ranging from 11-80+ before I decided which field I would like to work in. These setting have included alternative education, Durham University, Holme House Prison, Lanchester Road Hospital, Work Placed Counselling and several GP surgeries in Durham.
Having spent so much time working in Durham City I really felt a close connection to the area and people and chose to set up my own private practice in the area.
I am lucky enough to work from a peaceful, spacious and tranquil office in St Giles Church,at the bottom of Gilesgate Bank. This is a discreet setting with ample free parking, there is no reception or waiting room and clients are asked to arrive on their specific appointment time to allow for confidentiality to be maintained throughout the process.
