I'm always grateful for the opportunity to provide support, as I'm aware of the bravery that therapy takes, being vulnerable in session is immense. All clinicians at the clinic I run aim to work in a non-directive, client-centred way, meaning the client sets their own treatment goals and we're just the support that holds difficult or overwhelming emotions where needed. This allows the client to drive their own therapy and shows them that they can create a better life. Please know, I'm not currently taking new clients, however other clinicians at my clinic are!

Acceptance and Commitment (ACT) Counsellors
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a type of psychotherapy that helps you accept the difficulties that come with life. ACT is a form of mindfulness based therapy, theorising that greater well-being can be attained by overcoming negative thoughts and feelings. Essentially, ACT looks at your character traits and behaviours to assist you in reducing avoidant coping styles. ACT also addresses your commitment to making changes, and what to do about it when you can't stick to your goals.

If you're looking for ACT therapy in Newcastle or for a Newcastle ACT counsellor these professionals provide acceptance and commitment therapy, ACT group therapy, ACT therapy, and acceptance commitment therapy. They include ACT therapists, ACT psychologists, ACT psychotherapists and ACT counsellors.
