Many people seek counselling/hypnotherapy and for a variety of reasons and I believe we are all unique and that "one size doesn't fit all". I therefore use a multi model approach to therapy, this is obviously discussed and mutually agreed upon at each stage of your journey.
The video I have uploaded on this site gives more information on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy but this is just one type of approach from the various therapies I use.
Hypnotherapy/Counselling can help you cope with a mental health condition, an upsetting physical health condition, a difficult life event, difficult emotions or a whole host of other issues such as:
Childbirth, pregnancy and fertility
Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and other bowel conditions
Panic attacks, fears/phobias
Relationship issues, sexual issues
Self esteem/self confidence
Weight control (including hypno gastric band)
This list is in no way exhaustive and there are many more......
I hold an advanced diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling incorporating hypnotherapy practice. I am based in Fenham, Newcastle upon Tyne but see clients from various locations:
Gosforth, Jesmond, Heaton, Killingworth, North Shields, Wideopen, Cramlington, Kingston Park, Dinnington, Ponteland, Alnwick, Morpeth, Gateshead, coastal areas (Ashington, Whitley Bay, Tynemouth, South Shields) and the Durham and Sunderland areas.
I firmly believe, and know from experience, that counselling and hypnotherapy can help you to make a difference in your life and change things for the future and I offer a free initial telephone consultation (0191 2744208/07962424491or email at email@example.com) which is offered without any obligation whatsoever to proceed with therapy. Why do I do this?
Because it is the best way to assess what is best for you. It also helps us to gain some rapport before therapy commences and it allows us the chance to ensure you are ready for the change to be made and to help you make a difference in your life.
Safety and Regulation Issues
Unfortunately, hypnotherapists are not legislated in the UK and are not therefore required to have any specific training or to join any organisation by law. This does means that there may be unscrupulous individuals out there with either little or no professional training in the skills required for effective, ethical treatment and who may have little regard for your well being.
Qualified professionals who practise therapy belong to professional organisations so please ensure you choose a qualified therapist.
I am a Professional Member of the National Hypnotherapy Society and National Counselling Society and adhere to their fundamental ethical principles of:
Approaching work in the spirit of a vocation
Honouring the subjectivity of the therapy experience
Honouring the client's subjectivity, views, beliefs, ideas, goals
Respecting commonly understood boundaries

I sincerely wish I could offer therapy for free but unfortunately, like everyone else, I do have to make a living. I do however believe that my fees are reasonable and give value for the time and effort that goes into my sessions and the preparation work completed before each session. FREE CONSULTATION - I offer a free initial confidential telephone consultation (with no obligation). This allows us to explore exactly what you want to achieve and how counselling/hypnotherapy may be able to help. A face to face first session typically lasts 60 minutes. Subsequent sessions (when needed) are 45-60 minutes. Hypnotherapy smoking cessation is usually 90 - 120 minutes Hypnotherapy weight control usually starts with a longer session of 90 minutes and subsequent sessions lasting 45-60 minutes. Before therapy commences I discuss the number of sessions usually required for whatever treatment you are seeking. It should however be noted that this can be difficult to predict in advance as each individual progresses differently. I therefore never ask clients to bulk buy sessions (as I feel this is unethical) and instead treat all clients with honesty, integrity and encouragement to reach resolutions as soon as it is possible for them. Group bookings are priced on request.
