About me and my therapy practice
I offer a warm, non-judgemental counselling approach so together we can explore your issues and help you to feel better.
Where sessions are held:
My counselling practice is conveniently located next to Northumberland Square in North Shields. I have an additional counselling room within a private Victorian residence in Tynemouth. Both are within easy reach of Newcastle by car and public transport and have free parking near by.
My background in counselling:
For a number of years, I managed the counselling function for a city council in Tyne and Wear. During that time I directly provided counselling to over 500 people working in education, social services and corporate departments. Before this, I worked as a psychotherapist at a Women's charity in Northumberland and also as a psychotherapist and counsellor within Newcastle and the NHS.
How I Work:
I can work with you on an open-ended basis or for an agreed time period.
Our sessions will be 1 hour in length and can be every week or every two weeks at a mutually agreed time. You will not be charged for the first 30 minutes of the first session.
What outcome you can expect
My basic aim as your counsellor or psychotherapist is to help you feel more in control of your life. Some of my clients leave my sessions armed with effective self-help techniques so that they can manage their problems or distress better. Others come away feeling unburdened from previous issues, sadness and anxieties.
Nearly all my clients develop enhanced self-awareness and understanding.
Our counselling will allow you to explore your past and current situation with the aim of deciding upon positive changes for your future and the direction you would like your life to take.
