About me and my therapy practice
I offer confidential counselling appointments at a clinic in Newcastle which is easily accessible with parking, bus and metro stations nearby. I am a BACP Senior Accredited Counsellor and have 25 years experience working in the NHS with a full range of presenting issues. I offer counselling based on sound ethical principles putting respect for you, your experience and positive potential at the heart of our work together. My practice is inclusive as regards difference and diversity.
How you feel about your counsellor is very important. There are many practitioners to choose from and getting in touch can feel like a huge step. If you decide to contact me I am happy to have an initial informal chat by phone or you are welcome to send me an e-mail. If you would like to arrange an appointment I have a range of times available. My clinic in Newcastle has a stair lift.
In my first meeting lasting 50 minutes, I will listen to you carefully and with your permission may ask you for some further details to get the best idea of what you will find helpful from your counselling. The most important thing is that you begin to sense that you have options and that you can then start to feel better. If you decide you would like further sessions we can begin to draw up an initial plan together of how you would like your sessions to go which we can later review.
