Why emotional well-being matters
When we think of counselling we normally see it as a last resort when everything else has failed and we don't know what else to do. Counselling can offer a unique opportunity for us to develop our emotional intelligence and learn new skills which will equip us to deal with what life throws at us more easily. Most of us look after our physical wellbeing as well as we can: we go to the gym, try to follow a healthy diet. Hobbies and interests keep our minds alert and dynamic. Counselling can help us understand and harness our emotions to our advantage and through this can greatly enhance our quality of life.
If you would like to find out more about counselling, you can contact me either on the phone or via email and we can set up an initial telephone consultation (15 minutes) where we can discuss your goals for counselling and how I can help. There is no obligation to book a counselling session after that.
The clinic in Newcastle has disabled access.
If you just wish to make an appointment you can text, call or email me.

Areas of personal interest
I am particularly interested in working with stress
Stress is a natural response to a perceived threat but when stress levels remain high for a considerable length of time, it can lead to anxiety and depression as well as a series of physical illnesses such as migraines, heart conditions, chronic pain or digestive problems. Learning our triggers and being able to adapt our emotional responses to stress can make a significant difference to our quality of life.
I also work with women going through the menopause to help them address their physical symptoms, the emotional upheaval that it can cause and to re-negotiate their intimate relationships for the future.
I run regular introductory talks about these topics both in Morpeth and Newcastle.
