Counselling and psychotherapy provides a safe and confidential space which enables you to explore past and present issues or areas of your life which you would like to change. This could be in relation to immediate difficulties you are experiencing, such as a bereavement, relationship or family issues, stress or employment problems, symptoms of anxiety or depression or other mental health difficulties or may relate to longer standing issues, including those arising from childhood.
As a Therapeutic Counsellor and Integrative Psychotherapist I am able to draw on a number of different therapeutic approaches which then enables me to work with your individual needs and style. I provide a professional and confidential service to listen, support and work with you in understanding how past experiences or current difficulties may be affecting your life and provide you with effective treatment within a warm relationship in which you can heal and grow - I am passionate about helping clients work through their difficulties and improve how they are feeling.
You can telephone or email me and I'll contact you as soon as possible to answer any questions you might have and/or if appropriate to arrange a convenient first session to discuss what you want from therapy and how we can work together to achieve that. I practise from 2 locations, in Wallsend and Jesmond/Sandyford in centrally located, comfortable surroundings, the latter within easy walking distance of the city centre and both universities and popular student areas, with easy access to car parking and public transport. I aim to be as flexible as possible in arranging appointments, taking into account your work, study, family and other commitments.
At your first session, which will last about an hour, I will discuss what has brought you to therapy, what you want to gain from it and and how we can work together to help you achieve the outcomes you want. I will also give you information about the service which I provide and answer any questions which you may have about the process - understanding that you may feel nervous or worried at the start of counselling I will always endeavour to make taking these first steps as easy as possible for you.
”I'm not sure how to put into words the enormous impact working with Jeannie has had on my life. From the very first session I knew that I could trust her and felt safe and she enabled me to find my voice, to acknowledge my fears and to see that I had choices. Jeannie has guided me and helped me to be more at peace - something that I never thought I would be, she encouraged me to find myself again.
Jeannie is an incredible counsellor and psychotherapist, the work she does is without doubt, life changing - I wouldn't be where I am today and moving forward into a more positive future, feeling safe and confident, without her. Saying thank you to her for all that she has done seems inadequate".
”From our very first meeting I found you warm and understanding and you put me completely at ease. I can’t put into words how fantastic it was to feel that you were there to support me and help me through an extremely difficult time. Having seen other counsellors in the past, my experience of working with you was completely different. It was obvious to me that this is not just a job to you but that helping people to get through difficult experiences and make positive steps for the future is important to you as a person. From the start you gave me hope that I would feel better and I left that first session feeling positive and that at last I’d found someone who was going to be able to help me. That night I had the best night sleep that I’d had in over a year. I knew that I was in a safe pair of hands! Thank you also for being so accommodating with arranging my appointments - it was good to know that you’d always fit them in around my busy life and work shifts. I never felt that I was “on the clock” during my appointments. Now that my counselling is finished, I feel confident about my future. You asked me at the start what I wanted to achieve from counselling and I know that I have achieved that and so much more. I have learned so much about myself and the world around me and feel that I’ll now be able to deal with any future challenges in my life. I have found the joy in life again! I would have no hesitation in recommending that anyone experiencing difficulties should arrange to see you, I will always be thankful that I took that first step in contacting you and grateful to you personally for going over and above what was expected in order to help me.”
”As a new university student I was struggling with being away from home for the first time and with getting to grips with my new course. I wasn’t sure that counselling was for me but contacting Jeannie was the best thing I could have done. She has taught me some techniques for dealing with my anxiety which work for me and which I know that I can rely on if things get difficult for me. It has been so helpful to have someone to talk my worries through with and from the first appointment I started to feel better and that everything was going to be ok. Jeannie is so warm and caring and made me feel at home from the start - I felt as if I could tell her anything and it would be fine. Although I have now settled into uni life, I know that I will continue to see Jeannie from time to time and especially when I need some support or a bit of a tune up in the future.”
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a background in legal practice specialising largely in matrimonial and family law, having been qualified as a solicitor for over 25 years.

I have also been employed to provide mental health awareness training to a number of large organisations and am approved and employed by a number of national and international insurance companies and healthcare providers to deliver counselling and psychotherapy services to their clients. I am qualified as a counsellor and psychotherapist to the highest level and standard, I have a Master of Science degree (MSc) in Integrative Psychotherapy as well as a Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling, a Post Graduate Diploma in Integrative Psychotherapy and a Diploma in Psychotherapy, all passed with a Distinction.
