Hi my name is Fiona and I am a qualified counsellor and registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). If you are feeling anxious, depressed, stressed or overwhelmed then counselling is a safe place where you can share your thoughts and feelings in confidence and without fear of judgement. You may have been struggling for a while and have wanted or tried to talk to friends or family about how you feel, but sometimes that isn't easy or possible. Sometimes we can struggle on alone, putting on a brave face. This is when reaching out for counselling can be really supportive and helpful.
Sometimes, it might be difficult to find your way through challenging times alone, or understand how something significant in your life has affected you. Within therapy, we can work together to discover a way through. Sharing thoughts, feelings and memories can be intense and painful, especially if it is your first time opening up to someone else; exploring such things can make you feel worse before you feel better. Therapy helps this process become a movement towards personal growth, understanding, acceptance and change, free of any judgment.

We all have times when we find it hard to cope. Counselling can help you understand why you think, feel and act like you do. It can help you develop positive strategies to get what you want out of life. How we think, feel and behave is part of being human. Problems can arise when we get 'stuck' in negative thought patterns; when our feelings are persistently overwhelming; when our behaviour is self-destructive and doesn't result in us getting what we need; when we worry about the future, dwell on the past and find it hard to live in the present. I believe the most important relationship we have is the relationship with ourself.
Hello and thank you for visiting the information about my private counselling psychological practice in Newcastle Upon Tyne and Wallsend. I am passionate and curious about people's behaviour, mind, feelings and spirit in relation to the here and now as well as external influences. Your past experience can be important as it may shape your present in how you relate within relationships and the world around you, maybe affecting the current challenge you are experiencing. The key element of all life interactions is relationships. We as humans require connection with ourselves as well as others.
Folks like yourself come to talking therapy for lots of different reasons and many find talking through issues and/or events extremely helpful. Whether you are struggling with social anxiety, feeling sad/depressed, experiencing low self-esteem and confidence, living/working in a dysfunctional and toxic environment, trying to come to terms with gender and/or sexual identity, or perhaps you don’t know why you feel the way you do, you do not need to suffer in silence any longer. I use my therapeutic skills to help you to focus on the issues that really matter to you and at a pace you are most comfortable with.
There is so much focus these days on "What's wrong with you" using terms such as 'depression', 'anxiety', 'disorder', rather than talking about "What happened to you?" Your mental health is much more than just a label or a diagnosis and therapy offers so much more than just talking. It can give you new understanding, new insights, a different perspective, clarity about a problem and the way forward. It can teach you skills to live your life better, teach you more healthy coping strategies or simply give you the space and time for self reflection and a place to find peace of mind.
Hi. My name is Jamie, thank you for taking the time to view my page. I understand that it can be nerve-racking when it comes to reaching out for support and looking for a therapist. My desire is to help people feel heard and understood. I'm passionate about empowering others to feel more self-acceptance, increasing self-worth whilst improving the relationship you have with yourself and with others. I use the Person-Centred approach and my expertise includes relationship difficulties, co-dependancy, abuse, adults of childhood trauma, shame, addiction, sexuality issues, anxiety, low-mood, depression and many more.
Life can often feel overwhelming and daunting. At times we can feel we are being swept along by events, sometimes stuck and unable to move forwards. Sometimes we have an idea about who we want to be or how we want to change but struggle to make those changes a reality. Sometimes we feel we are failing, not good enough, out of control. Quite often we feel these things but try to carry on without sharing that with anyone and feel lost and alone. All of these experiences are familiar to me and to the people I have worked with over the years. As a Person-Centred counsellor I believe first and foremost in creating a safe space for client
Perhaps you’re feeling anxious, stressed or struggling with low moods. Maybe you’re short on confidence or feel overwhelmed. You don’t need to feel this way and you don’t have to go it alone. I can support you in a compassionate, non- judgemental way and offer you a safe and confidential space where you can truly be heard and understood. By building a warm & trusting relationship, we can work together to get a deeper understanding of the issues you’re facing.
Hello, I’m Katie, welcome to my profile. So how can I help? Maybe you're struggling with emotional stress? Feeling stuck? A loss of purpose and direction in life? Experiencing the effects of a bereavement or trauma? There are many reasons why you may be seeking counselling. Talking to family and friends can often help but it's not the same as sharing your concerns with a trained professional. I specialise in helping people find a way to manage anxiety, rebuild self-confidence and overcome life's obstacles.
Are you looking to increase self confidence, overcome anxiety or manage depression? Are you processing a trauma that was out of your control and want to learn new strategies to cope with changes in life? Counselling is a process of getting to know how the way you feel, think and behave relate to centre of who you are. My hope is that together we can help you figure out how to align who you are now with the person you want to be.
Even the strongest among us can feel lost, confused, ambivalent, dejected or simply unhappy at times, leaving us feeling overwhelmed by life’s demands at times. Together, we can introduce clarity, and confidence, whilst developing your coping strategies enabling you to move forward. I work with Person-Centred Therapy, which is a non-directive approach, putting you in control of your own healing process, empowering you to be you and giving you full autonomy. I have knowledge of various counselling approaches, so we can tailor your therapy to fit your individual needs.

I utilise my wealth of life experience combined with expertise and training to help my clients through some of their most challenging times.
