About me and my therapy practice

My name is Cheryl Forshaw and I am a MBACP registered Psychotherapeutic Counsellor.

I have a huge passion for helping people of all diversities and their mental wellbeing. My personal philosophy is to always act with sensitivity and integrity, be mindful of the BACP Ethical Framework, and take a non-judgemental approach with all of my clients.

I use a number of venues in locations across the North East of England for face-to-face sessions, and I can also work remotely via Zoom and Teams.

Practice description

I understand that looking for the right counsellor can be tricky.

There's a lot of choice out there and you may also have the worry of not connecting with your therapist.

I offer a service where your first session is simply the cost of the room hire (starting from £12.50 for 50 minutes), so you then have the opportunity to decide if you would like to continue working with me.

I carry out both long and short term Adult Psychotherapeutic Counselling (sometimes called 'talking therapies') and I use an integrative approach which means that the therapy is tailored to your needs.

My first session

When you come to see me you will find the process to be very relaxed, clear and transparent; in your initial session I will carry out an evaluation to help explore your needs and then we will agree a plan for the period ahead. This can help you understand your progress throughout your journey, including your goals for each stage.
