Other areas of counselling I deal with
I work in private practice in the north east offering a counselling and psychotherapy service to those in Tyne and Wear and the localities of Newcastle Upon Tyne. I work individually with adults and also couples. I have a particular specialism of working with children, families and couples and the issues they may face. Adoption, step families and foster families present their own difficulties and need someone with specific skills to do provide this approach and counselling service.
Some people prefer to attend short term and work on presenting issues whilst others may want to work on experiences from the past the continue to haunt them in the present.
Feeling safe and building a relationship in which the unspeakable can be explored is my strength as a counsellor and psychotherapist. This allows an opportunity to develop new strategies to cope with old difficulties of low self esteem, anxiety depression.
