Welcome, and thank you for visiting my site
I am a counsellor and psychotherapist who takes an integrative approach. This means I try to focus on what the client needs, using techniques and theories from different areas, whilst my initial training was person centered.
I see my role as creating a space where you can explore what matters in a safe, non-judgmental space. I use a number of interventions, as appropriate, such as journaling, mindfulness, art therapy, stone work and other gestalt CBT and Person Centered techniques.
I offer online, telephone and in person counselling. Online options can be particularly useful to a number of people, because of time, location, disability, convenience, family commitments, or other reasons. Sessions can take place either via webcam, or instant messaging. I currently work with people from across the world, including expats who find online counselling ideal for their needs.
I also offer conventional face to face sessions based in the Stocksfield, in the Tyne Valley, Northumberland
Or, if Newcastle is more convenient, I have a therapy room in Newcastle, at Mea House.
Sessions usually last for 50 minutes, usually take place weekly, and whether in person or online I adhere to the values, and ethical framework of the BACP. A copy of this, and their complaints procedure are available upon request. I am also fully insured and have a DBS check.
If you would like to discuss counselling further you can contact me on Northumberlandcounselling@gmail.com or use the contact form.
Finally, thank you for reading, sometimes simply clicking a link is the first, most vital step.
