Pauline Doyle - Counsellor MBACP & Clinical Hypnotherapist
Due to the current COVID-19 situation your anxiety may be heightened as well as a feeling of a lack of control. I can help you gain a sense of control over your life and help to reduce those anxious feelings. I am currently offering telephone sessions to reduce the risk of spreading the virus. I offer the first session at £30 with subsequent sessions at the reduced rate of £35.
Are you going through a difficult time? Is something making you anxious, depressed, upset or confused? Feeling unhappy, struggling with relationships or not seeing any joy in life? I can help you on your first step to recovery when life becomes overwhelming.
Hi, my name is Pauline and I am a fully qualified counsellor and clinical hypnotherapist offering therapy in a safe and confidential space where you can freely share your thoughts and feelings. I aim to provide a warm, relaxed, safe space where you can talk about and explore difficulties in your life without judgment and achieve personal change. I believe that the key to successful therapy is a trustworthy relationship between myself and my clients.
Although I work mainly from a Person-centred approach I integrate other models of counselling such as Gestalt, Transactional Analysis and Solution-Focused Therapy. As a clinical hypnotherapist I aim to support my client achieve change by finding totally effective solutions for a wide variety of difficulties from unwanted habits, addictions and emotional issues. I adapt my approach to meet the individual and unique needs of my client.
I work with adults and young people offering short, medium and long term work depending on your needs. I will help you develop strategies and ways to cope in the future.
My practice is in Hebburn with free parking and within a short walking distance of a metro station.
How many sessions will I need?
The amount of sessions depends on your needs and we would regularly review our work together to ensure we are making progress that is meaningful to you and the space to decide on how you want to proceed.

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.
