Qualified relationship and family therapist offering confidential individual, couple and family counselling and coaching close to Newcastle upon Tyne as well as online and by phone.
I can provide support for most relationship issues. People’s needs are all different and change over the course of therapy. My approach integrates elements of person centred, systemic, psychodynamic and behavioural therapy as appropriate to your needs.
Areas I can help you with include:
- Preparation for Commitment
- Relationship Coaching
- Relationship Counselling
- Family Counselling
- Managing Separation and Divorce
- Having a Baby
- Affairs and Betrayals
- Sex Problems
- Child Related Issues
- Gender and Sexuality
I offer an initial assessment session where I can find out more about what brings you to seek support and where you can ask any questions you have about the process or what to expect. At the end of this session we can make some decisions together about next steps.
Sessions are usually weekly to obtain a momentum for the work, but I recognise in real life people might work shifts or have other reasons they can't attend weekly and other options can be discussed in the initial session.
I can offer sessions later in the day as I recognise it's often difficult for couples or families to attend together in the daytime. Please call Tynemouth Clinic to enquire about my current availability.
