About me

Unsure about the next step in your life? Feeling depressed, alone or stuck in a relationship that's seems to be going nowhere? Step family issues? Need some support getting through?

Hi. I'm Graeme Armstrong, and I offer counselling in a confidential, nonjudgmental, safe and friendly environment. I work according to the Ethical Framework of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I've been a counsellor now for over 10 years, and work with individuals, couples, families and young people over the age of 11. I am an experienced and qualified RELATE counsellor and supervisor of counsellors, and have years of experience working in a range of settings, including Children's Centres and GP surgeries.

I work from the calm surroundings of Jesmond Therapy Centre see and at the heart of my practice lies a passionate belief that although we all experience great pain and distress in our lives, we all have the ability to heal and grow through this pain and find more enriching, creative and satisfying lives. It has been my honour to have helped hundreds of people on the counselling journey to do just that.

I work with a wide range of issues. As a couple counsellor I work with relationships or marriages that are at a crossroads, relationships that are struggling after the impact of an affair or the loss of sexual feelings. There could be a host of individual issues that you are experiencing that also affect your relationship: bereavement, redundancy, "empty nest syndrome", anxiety or depression. You might be divorced and wondering how best to handle the parental relationship. Do you feel threatened in your relationship and want to explore what's happening?

Struggling with stepfamily issues? Wondering how or when to introduce your children to your new partner and their children? I can help with family counselling.

If it's individual counselling you need, if you feel alone and have nobody to turn to, if you're anxious, depressed or stressed at work, just been made redundant and uncertain of the next step, let me help you find your way through the mazes and muddles that life brings.

As a member of the Association of Pastoral Spiritual Care and Counselling (APSCC) I can help you if you are at a crossroads with your spirituality or faith.

Training to be a counsellor and need supervision? Since 2006 I have delivered supervision to counsellors who are just beginning their training through to Master’s level, using a wide range of therapeutic modalities.

I’m here to help: make today a new beginning and call me at the number above.
