Gill Cassidy, Newcastle Upon Tyne NE16
My hope is to offer you a compassionate and safe space to be heard. At the heart of my work is the healing potential of the therapeutic relationship. My desire is to be alongside you as you draw on your inner strength, creativity and resilience in what can often be very challenging or traumatic life events. I know this on both a personal and professional level.
My original experience comes from my role as a practice counsellor in several G.P surgeries. I had the privilege of supporting many different people from all walks of life. I love my work and have been in practice for thirteen years .
My approach to therapy is intuitive and creative, attending to what's happening for you right now, whilst giving respect and time to earlier experiences. Being committed to my own personal growth, I deeply believe that this way of being helps us understand ourselves better. Through therapy our lives and our relationships can be deeply enriched.I have a deep interest in vitality and finding our way back to our true selves.
I want to acknowledge the anxiety around deciding to ask for support. It takes courage to reach out for help. Please do not hesitate to ask me anything you may need to know to make a good choice .

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
