Counselling and Psychotherapy in Northumberland for Prudhoe and surrounding villages, Corbridge and Hexham
I hope that these pages will give you a sense of me and how I work as a counsellor and psychotherapist.
The reason you are here will be very personal and specific to you. I imagine it has taken some courage to get this far and you are wondering whether therapy can help. There may be issues from your past that are interfering with your ability to live life as you would like to. Or you may be struggling with relationship issues, at home or at work, that are leaving you unhappy. You may be feeling loss through bereavement, infertility, divorce, role changes or other significant challenges in your life.
Perhaps you find yourself meeting the needs of others, maybe not even knowing what your own needs are. Maybe you find it difficult to say "no". Or do you find yourself feeling overwhelmed and anxious; always feeling "on alert"? Perhaps you put a smile on for others, hiding how you really feel - it's exhausting isn't it? These ways of being in the world have enabled you to survive in the past but may no longer help as they once did.
Talking things through with family and friends can be helpful; but have you found yourself holding back from being open, wanting to protect them or fearing being too much for them? Being able to work with a psychotherapist or counsellor in a safe, calm, and supportive environment can enable you to see things more clearly and open up possibilities for change. My own experience of therapy persuaded me of its benefits and led me to work in this psychotherapy profession. Why not get in touch and see whether you feel I could help?
As an experienced counsellor and psychotherapist I am skilled in working with clients who are experiencing or have experienced:
............ or perhaps you just have a sense that life could be better.
My therapy practice is based in Ovingham, Prudhoe; just north of the Tyne and half-way between Newcastle and Hexham. I work daytime and evenings Monday to Thursday. Please contact me for current availability.
My practice can be accessed from Hexham and villages surrounding Prudhoe via train, bus or car.
Whilst my preferred way of working would be to be in a room together with someone, working on-line is an effective option during these unusual times. I appreciate however, it might not be right for everyone. If you have a specific question about psychotherapy and counselling, or about working on-line, that I have not answered within these pages, please do email me and I will try to answer you by the next working day.
