John Ingram (MBACP) Registered
I have gained over 30 years of experience working as a clinician within the NHS, which I believe has given me a wealth of insight in talking to people with specific needs.
In my practice, I strive to provide the conditions which allow people with any type of psychological distress to find growth and healing.
Offering a safe environment free from judgment or pressure for results is central to who I am and the way I work and it is through this that I believe change can be achieved.
I work from a dedicated and comfortable therapy room built close to my home in Hexham.
I also offer a service where we meet at a mutually agreed location within a reasonable distance of Hexham, Newcastle and Northumberland
Training, qualifications & experience
I trained at the University of Warwick, first with a certificate in Counselling Skills, then moved on to a degree in Person Centred Counselling. I am registered with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) which provides a framework of ethics and responsibility within which I work. I am also a member of The British Association for the Person Centred Approach (BAPCA) which is my chosen way of working.
I have experience of working with people with physical disabilities, and life-altering neurological conditions, as well as anxiety, depression, relationship issues, self-esteem, life changes, drug and alcohol issues, issues surrounding sexuality and gender, and an interest therapy for performers, health anxiety issues and the general painful issues that can arise from the struggles of everyday life.
Areas of counselling I deal with
- Anger management
- Career counselling
- Carer support
- Chronic fatigue syndrome/ME
- Emotional abuse
- Family issues
- Gender dysphoria
- Generalised anxiety disorder
- Low self-confidence
- Low self-esteem
- Panic disorder
- Passive aggressive behaviour
- Relationship problems
- Separation and divorce
- Suicidal thoughts
- Work-related stress
Other areas of counselling I deal with
Therapy for clients with chronic long term neurological disorders.
Therapy for performers.
I would usually advise that we should meet for a shortened (30 min) appointment at which I can understand your needs and also to get some idea if it would be appropriate for us to work together.
The initial shortened appointment would be free of charge.
A full appointment is usually around 50 minutes in length and costs £45, however, I am willing to negotiate prices for special circumstances.
