Counselling in Newcastle
Hello, I am Gabrielle. A warm welcome to my private practice, offering an Integrative Psychotherapeutic Counselling service with mindfulness meditation instruction. I provide long and short term counselling in Newcastle City Centre to individual adults of all ages. It is my aim to create a compassionate, relaxed and confidential space for us to explore your difficulties and find a way through together.
Why seek Counselling?
Do you often feel anxious & depressed?
Do you feel worthless and low in confidence?
Are you troubled by painful or traumatic memories?
Do you feel stuck in self-defeating patterns of behaviour?
Do you feel pressure to please others, saying “yes” when you want to say “no”?
Do you worry a lot, feeling insecure & unprepared for the demands of adult life?
Are you searching for meaning in life and an answer to the question “Who am I”?
If you answered yes to some or all of these questions, I can help.
It is not unusual to live with a sense of being ‘not good enough’, to feel overwhelmed by life, or stuck and unable to more forward. There can be many reasons for this. Maybe you are in the habit of putting others first & now feel exhausted and overwhelmed with commitments. It may be that you did not get the care you needed or experienced sexual, physical or emotional abuse or neglect early in life. You may have suffered a loss, bereavement or trauma that has turned your world upside down. Perhaps you have lived with a sense of rejection and discrimination for not fitting into society, always feeling like a square peg in a round hole. Or perhaps the reasons are not yet clear to you.
There is a way through. I can help you explore these experiences and find meaning. I have particular skill in working with people who struggle to make satisfying relationships with others, and in supporting people to work with childhood trauma and developmental/attachment issues. My in-depth psychotherapeutic counselling training, my own personal explorations, and long-standing mindfulness practice have given me a profound understanding of what it takes to repair old relational wounds and find meaningful connection.
Asking for help can take courage – sometimes we only do so when we fear that our lives are falling apart or our chance to meet our potential is slipping away. My clients tell me they find me intuitive, accepting and compassionate. I will listen to you without judgement, welcoming you as you are. I believe that you are the expert on yourself. There is only one You and I can help you discover who that is.
