About me

Thank you for viewing my profile. If you would like to find out more information about Touching Base Counselling North East or to discuss our services, please contact me on info@touching-base.co.uk

Using a person centred approach to counselling, I offer a welcoming and confidential space where you can be valued and understood in order to begin finding your own way forward. I will help you to reflect upon and explore your challenges whilst offering an independent, non-judgemental perspective. I cater for a range of issues including, stress, work related issues, anxiety, bereavement, depression, relationship problems and abuse.

For many, it is helpful to have some time and space away from their everyday lives where they can talk to a trained professional about issues which may be troubling them. Whilst friends and family can be an invaluable source of support during difficult times, sometimes talking to a counsellor who is outside of and not emotionally involved in the situation can provide a fresh perspective, new insights and help you to see things clearer and handle life’s issues in a different way.

We can work flexibly around your schedule, and offer counselling on early evenings and weekends.

Touching Base Counselling North East is located in the heart of Newcastle. We offer private counselling at multiple locations across Newcastle and further afield. Our main location is the Vault in Wallsend. Click here for our full venue details.

Fees

Individual counselling sessions cost £50 and we offer a discounted rate of £40 per session for bookings of 6 sessions or more.

We offer an initial assessment at £25, where we will explore presenting issues and discover if we are able to work together. If Touching Base is not right for you, we will discuss this during our meeting and we will look at the available alternatives.

Further information

The length of counselling is different for everyone, however we suggest a minimum of six 50 minute sessions to begin with. At the end of these sessions we can review and discuss if we feel more sessions are needed.
