Free Your Voice- Counselling

Offering 1-1 Counselling and Voice Therapy About me I strongly believe that talking therapies should be accessible to all and I aim to reflect this in my social pricing structure. Being heard and valued shouldn't be a luxury. Many of us face times in our lives where things just seem too much. Emotional, spiritual and personal difficulties often mount up and we can be left feeling stuck and overwhelmed. Counselling offers you a safe, non judgmental space where you can freely explore your inner thoughts and feelings in confidence. Through being truly listened to you will begin to unravel your story, where you can start to gain a greater insight of your inner and outer worlds. As a counsellor I believe you have the right... To be heard. To be valued and trusted that you are doing the best you can. To have my undivided attention while I am with you. I will acknowledge your pain and struggle; celebrating with you the fact that you are here, striving to be more at peace with yourself and the world. Knowing that you are the expert in your own life and trusting that with patience, unconditional positive regard and empathy, you will remember this. As well as being an experienced, qualified counsellor using skills and theory, I utilise many other techniques in a therapeutic context . Rather than having a one shoe fits all approach I am very much about seeing what will work for YOU. Together, we will build a coping framework to suit your individual needs. I am located at the comfortable and beautiful Vault, Well-Being Centre, just one minute walk from Wallsend Metro, and ample parking if coming by car. I also see clients at my home venue in Whitley Bay, Training, qualifications & experience Qualified, practicing Counsellor since 2005 Current private practice working 1-1 with adults Director of a Well-Being Centre GP Counsellor Associate of a Private Practice working 1-1 with adult clients Child and Adolescent Counsellor Student Counsellor at Northumbria University Student Services 1-1 Voice Therapy and meditation group facilitator Foundation Degree in Humanistic Counselling HNC in Counselling skills and theory NCFE levels 1 & 2 in Counselling skills and theory Higher National Diploma in Health and Social Care Fully Registered Member of BACP Various workshops and short courses including Bereavement, Relationships, Addictions, Brief Therapy, Counselling Males, Domestic Abuse, Play Therapy and Sound Therapy.

What do you love most about your job?

Its sounds obvious, but I love being able to help people. Through support unconditional positive regard and guidance, I am able to offer people a safe space to explore their concerns. I enjoy watching people make progress, move on and heal wounds and problems that that may have been carrying all their life.
I love it when clients finish counselling and complete an Evaluation Form and they share how much better they feel, quoting maybe little things I said or that they loved coming to my practice where they feel welcome and relaxed.
Ultimately I love being able to help, its a gift and I feel lucky that I can share it.

What inspired you to start your own business?

Based on traumatic bereavements of both parents in my childhood and teens I knew at 16 that I wanted to go into the caring profession, and started studying a Diploma in Social Care. Since then Ive worked with families, children and individuals in many roles but found myself wanting to concentrate more on 1-1 work, so I left employment and took on full time study 12 years ago. I find running my own business highly rewarding, and of course at times challenging. But thats life...full of ups and downs!

Why should our clients choose you?

I am dedicated to my work. I feel that beyond the theory and qualifications I have a natural gift; Im empathic and supportive and believe given the right environment, folk will find their own answers within. Being able to trust me and feel at ease is paramount and all clients tell me this was one of the most important aspects of their recovery.

Counselling FAQs

Your expert Counsellor will be able to advise you on the full range of services available and will be able to advise on what is most suitable. Use Bark to get free quotes and schedule an appointment today.

At your appointment, you will be encouraged to talk about your feelings and emotions with a trained Counsellor who will listen and support you without judging or criticising.
The therapist can help you gain a better understanding of your feelings and thought processes and find your own solutions to problems. However, they will not usually give advice or tell you what to do. The Counsellor might sum up what they understand you have been saying so that they can help you to form a plan of action.

Counselling can take place in a number of ways. These include:

  • Face to face session

  • Group session

  • Phone session

  • Email session

  • Online through live chat services or video conferencing software

You may be offered a single session of Counselling, a short course of sessions over a few weeks or months or a longer course that lasts for several months or years.

It can take a number of sessions before you start to see progress but you should gradually start to feel better with the help and support of your Counsellor.

You can be confident that any of the Bark local Counsellors listed will give you a reliable and efficient service to help you feel better.

You could look for Counsellors that are accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA) which means that they have met the PSA’s required professional standards to practise.

Before you choose a Counsellor, you could read testimonials and read details of the issues they can help with on their website.

You could also look at their profile page on Bark and check out reviews from past customers too.

Counselling can help with many issues. These include the following:

  • Mental health conditions such as depression, anxiety or eating disorders.

  • Physical health conditions such as infertility.

  • Difficult life events such as a bereavement, a relationship breakdown or work-related stress.

  • Dealing with difficult emotions such as low self-esteem or anger.

  • Sexual identity issues.

  • Divorce.

  • Redundancy and work issues.

  • Phobias and fears.

Absolutely! Many Counsellors provide their services remotely via an online video call or the telephone. Not only is it more convenient, but it's also the preferable option for many people who would feel more comfortable holding the session from the comfort of their own home.
