My philosophical approach is trauma informed with the belief that the importance of therapeutic relationship is at the core of successful therapeutic work. I work in a relational way with clients. I believe that having a safe harbour to express the unexpressed, connect to the disconnected and feel the unfelt is at the heart of healing our inner wounds. As your therapist I will not give advice or tell you what to do. I will listen empathically to your concerns and experiences. I will work in collaboration with you to explore your experience, empower you to find your own solutions and build coping skills that work for you.

I most often work with clients who are dealing with aspects of anxiety, and/or depression, or with work related conflicts, who need a listening ear, and a place where there will not be judged, and whose goals are to at least make some small improvement to the lives, whether that be valuing themselves more and taking more time for themselves or realising what may be more important to them in life.

Welcome. Are you here because you are struggling with something in your life and need some help and support? Perhaps you are experiencing some symptoms of depression, anxiety, stress, trauma or addiction? Or something else? Would you like someone to listen to you in a confidential, safe place, without judgement? Are you interested in improving your confidence and increasing your self-esteem? Life can really test us at times and we may be unable to find the answers within ourselves or indeed from our family and friends.

Life can throw a lot at us and sometimes we need support and help to learn new ways of thinking or coping.If you're facing challenges in your life or relationships such as difficulties in communication, intimacy, self-esteem, sexual fulfilment or exploring your identity then I am here to help support and guide you. I work in a pluralistic way, finding what approaches work best for you: no two people are the same so how can we expect one approach to work for everybody?

I’m a firm believer that a problem shared is a problem halved. But often it can be difficult to find the right person and setting to share certain things with. This can be especially true when we want to talk about personal challenges, such as depression, anxiety, loss, or trauma. Maybe you want to explore why you are not feeling yourself but don’t know where to begin. Or possibly, relationships are difficult, and you need a safe environment and a supportive person to turn to. Talking with a counsellor can give you the opportunity to explore parts of yourself, or life, which you may feel unable to do so with friends or family.

When a person experiences emotional trauma it can be the most frightening time in their life and talking to someone when we feel at our most vulnerable has the potential to be life changing .I am passionate about mental well-being and have had a 25 year career in Mental Health initially as a nurse and now a counsellor. I believe that events in our life and our experiences directly impact upon our psychological health. Seeking professional help in a safe and secure setting is often the first step towards recovery .

Are you finding life hard work, struggling with a low mood or losing your temper at the smallest of things? Do you feel out of control and that life is not what it's meant to be? Then maybe I can help. If you'd like to feel more in control, less overwhelmed or anxious then talking therapies can really help. Many of my clients come to me exhausted from trying to take control of their life, struggling to manage their anger and feeling worthless. After a few sessions most clients notice that life begins to feel less stressful, their relationships start to improve and the joy of living begins to return.

Emotional difficulties and painful feelings are a fact of life, but sometimes they can become so overwhelming or unmanageable that we don’t know what to do or where to turn. Sometimes we just have a feeling of something being wrong but can't articulate what that might be. Talking to friends and family can sometimes help, but if that isn’t an option, or isn’t helping, then perhaps it is time to consider counselling or psychotherapy.

How can I find a therapist in Newcastle?

Search for nearby therapists or counsellors by inputting your city, town, or suburb; or postcode; or a provider’s name into the search bar. From there, you can filter providers by the issues they treat, cost, insurance, gender, and other factors to find providers who are well-suited to your needs. To navigate between locations within the same country, enter a new city or postcode into the search bar.

Learn more about how to find a therapist.

Is online therapy a good option?

Therapy conducted online or over the phone can be just as effective as in-person therapy, as long as there is a strong alliance between the client and the therapist. To find a therapist who provides telehealth services to clients in your area, click “Online Therapy” on the directory homepage and search by your city or town or your postcode.

What’s the difference between a psychologist, a therapist, and a counsellor?

Therapists, psychologists, and counsellors are all licensed mental health professionals. In many countries, psychologists have earned a doctoral degree. The terms “therapist” and “counsellor” are used somewhat interchangeably, but generally therapists offer longer-term, mental health care, while counsellors offer shorter-term care that may focus on one domain, such as marriage, career, or academic challenges.

What type of therapist is right for me?

Clients should consider factors such as insurance coverage and their primary reason(s) for seeking therapy to determine the type of professional best suited to their needs. Someone struggling with mental health challenges such as depression or anxiety, for example, may wish to seek out a clinical psychologist or therapist, while someone navigating career obstacles or marital upheaval may benefit from seeing a counsellor who can offer short-term, targeted support.

Is everyone in the Psychology Today Therapy Directory a licensed therapist?

The Psychology Today directory lists providers who offer legitimate mental health services to the public, including psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and counselors. Many have been licensed by the country where they practice; providers whose license or primary credential has been verified by Psychology Today are signified by a “Verified” symbol. Some clinicians or organizations provide services for which their state or country does not offer licenses, such as pastoral counselling. They may be selectively included without the “Verified” seal.

What type of therapy is right for me?

The type of therapy best suited to a particular individual depends on several factors, including their primary reason for seeking therapy, their preferred timeline (some therapy types last for a set number of sessions, while others are open-ended), and their personality and preferences—some may prefer a more structured approach. For many individuals, multiple types of therapy could provide a good fit.

Is online therapy cheaper than in-person therapy?

Many therapists charge the same amount for online therapy as they do for in-person therapy—though clients may still find this cost-effective if it cuts down on their transportation costs. Health insurance plans often offer equivalent coverage for online and in-person therapy; indeed, in many places, they are legally required to do so. Text-based or on-demand therapy apps may be cheaper than traditional one-on-one psychotherapy; however, the practice may be less effective and is not likely to be covered by insurance.
