I work with adults and adolescents and I also run DBT based groups regularly, let us know if you are interested in the next one.
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!

I have a wide range of experience working with adolescents and adults with a variety of diagnoses and concerns. I am passionate about helping people to work through anxiety, depression, adjustment disorder, PTSD, developmental trauma, and grief and loss among other concerns. I work with clients to address the concerns that are coming up for them in the here and now, to provide the tools and strategies for immediate support. I feel it is also important to explore how this has come to be including the impact of past events, trauma, underlying core beliefs, and maladaptive coping strategies to work towards the best future possible.

A wide variety of people are supported including adolescents and adults .
Grahame understands that the struggles his clients encounter in life are often not just one difficulty but are made up of many things. The clients he supports have sort assistance because their situations have caused their coping mechanisms to come under great strain and the quality of life they value so much has diminished, effecting how they see themselves and the people around them. Grahame has found the people he has assisted in counselling have tried to manage these difficulties and in doing so have developed their own strategies and coping skills with many being personal strengths, which he is committed to enhancing.

I have a passion for working with young people, adults , and the First Nations population using a client-centered, humanistic, and strengths-based approach. I find in collaboration with you, we can determine the best path to move forward, to get you to a position of improved life quality. Whether that may be understanding past experiences affecting present issues, or present issues disrupting future ideals. I personally believe that each person’s journey is significant and deserves a safe space to be heard and attended to. Within this space, personal strengths can also be found, which can then be applied effectively in therapy.

I am passionate about supporting teenagers and adults , especially those who deal with the impacts of trauma, who don’t feel good in the boxes society tries to fit us into, who are trying to make the world a better place, or are simply struggling to cope with events beyond our control. The world can be a difficult place to live in, and we all need help sometimes. And sometimes we need a cat video. I named Ginger Cat Counselling after my own lovable eccentric, because it reminds me of the comfort and support I don't always realise I have. You are the expert in your life, and its my job to help you figure out how to support yourself.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
Some of the most common types of mental health providers in Newcastle are psychologists, licensed counsellors, therapists, psychotherapists, and licensed clinical social workers, all of whom diagnose mental health conditions and provide individualised treatment.

Services offered, education, and credentials vary by type of mental health professional. Each professional in Newcastle then may specialise in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counselling, or anxiety. Although many mental health providers are not licensed to prescribe medication, they may coordinate with a provider who can.

Both in-person and online therapy sessions are available from most psychologists.

How do I find psychologists in Newcastle with the specialty experience I’m looking for?
You can refine your search using the filters on this page. There are several categories you can filter by to find mental health professionals with the experience you are looking for. You may want to filter for CBT Psychologists in Newcastle, or Child Psychologists in Newcastle.

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like Newcastle psychologists specialising in EMDR.


What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in Newcastle specialise in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or counsellor who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

Can I afford counselling?
Yes. Most counsellors offer reasonable rates or will work on a sliding scale basis. Many accept health insurance. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the counsellor.
