About me

Sometimes things in our lives just don’t feel as good as they could be. You might wonder if life could be better, and wish there was a way to feel more fulfilled. Maybe you compare yourself to others and feel like a failure. Perhaps it’s difficult to communicate your needs or you struggle to set appropriate boundaries in your relationships. You may wake up every morning knowing that you want things to be different, better, but not what that looks like, or how to get there.

I would love to work with you to help you discover confidence and fulfilment and how to sustain this. I will ask questions that prompt you to tell me about your life and help us to ‘connect the dots’ so the roots of your difficulty, and how to find contentment, become clear. I integrate tools from the person-centred, TA and creative approaches.

I’m based in Jesmond with great transport links and free parking. I offer some early morning and evening sessions making therapy possible around work. You are welcome to email me to book a free 15-minute initial phone call, or a half-price initial session, to see if you like the way I work. My website can tell you more: www.elsieowen.com

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). This means that I work in line with their guidelines for professional and ethical practice to keep us both safe.


Although I work with people facing a variety of issues, I have specific experience of working with those who are struggling with low self-esteem and low self-confidence. I love working with people to help them figure out how to feel better about themselves and who they are, so that life becomes genuinely fulfilling and enjoyable.
