Counselling and Psychotherapy in Northumberland for Prudhoe and surrounding villages, Corbridge and Hexham
Welcome to my Website
Please note that due to Covid19 I am currently only working on-line
My name is Terri Windsor and within these pages I hope you will gain a sense of me and my psychotherapy practice. I work in Prudhoe, actually just north of the Tyne and half-way between Newcastle and Hexham. Currently however I am only working on-line, primarily using zoom. Whilst my preferred way of working would be to be in a room together with someone, I am finding myself becoming more accepting of the adjustment to on-line working as an effective option during these changing times. I also appreciate it might not be helpful 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.
What brings you to my website will be very personal and specific to you. There may be issues from the past that are interfering with your ability to live life as you would like to. Or you may be struggling with relational patterns that are leaving you unhappy. You may be feeling loss through bereavement, infertility, divorce or other significant challenges in your life. Perhaps you are feeling overwhelmed by life as it is currently; feeling depressed, stressed, sad, lonely or anxious. Or you may not be sure what the problem is but have a feeling that things are not quite right. If any of this resonates with you please do contact me.
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 talk things through with a psychotherapist or counsellor can enable you to talk more freely and gain a greater understanding of yourself and your situation. Within the safe, calm and supportive environment I offer we can explore your experiences, and as your self-awareness increases we can work towards long lasting change.
Although I only now work in private practice, I have extensive experience previously of working within the NHS as a Primary Care counsellor. Here I worked with clients experiencing depression and anxiety; sometimes due to longstanding issues and sometimes as a result of recent life events. In addition, I have significant experience of counselling clients who wanted help to reduce or manage their alcohol use, alongside addressing any underlying trauma that can trigger substance misuse.

I offer a professional counselling and psychotherapy service for Prudhoe and the surrounding villages, Corbridge and Hexham. People contact me after I have been recommended to them or they have been drawn by something on my website. Some of the issues I have experience of working through with clients include :
I also work with clients who just have a sense that life could be better.
Working together we can gain greater insight and understanding of your experience; exploring your situation and what it means for you. I will support you to identify and try out different choices you might want to make.
My therapy practice is based in Ovingham, Prudhoe (which is within reach of Corbridge, Hexham and Newcastle).
I work afternoons and evenings Monday to Thursday and Wednesday morning. Please contact me for current availability.
