“Keep calm because this too shall pass.”

With the gradual easing of the Covid-19 lockdown I am pleased to say that we have resumed face to face sessions at our Gosforth Regents Centre location every day and also on Tue/Wed/Thurs at Swalwell. Entry and hygiene procedures will be given on reservation. To reserve a face to face session please contact me. I will  continue to be fully available for counselling and therapy sessions by video link by Zoom for those who find this more convenient or are apprehensive about face to face contact at the moment.
Once you replace negative thoughts with positive ones, you’ll start having positive results.” – Willie Nelson

Hello, welcome to Mind over Matter Newcastle and congratulations on taking the first step, the most difficult one, in seeking help for whatever issue you are struggling to understand or come to terms with.
People just like you from the Newcastle and Gateshead area come to therapy for many different reasons. They may be having difficulty coming to terms with grief through the loss of a friend or relative, the breakup of a long term relationship, feelings of anxiety or panic attacks, traumatic incidents in their lives. These are just a few examples of the reasons people feel the need of extra support through counselling or psychotherapy.

"Mental illness is no myth."
– Nelson Mandela

At times in our lives we seem to encounter situations or come up against problems that just seem particularly difficult for us to understand and they persist and never seem to go away. This can lead to feelings of confusion and isolation, life seems to get on top of you and you don't know what is happening or who to turn to.

You are certainly not alone in feeling this way, just watch the news or read the papers and you will see many examples of people, some famous or well known, others just like you but all sharing the same feelings of confusion, fear, anxiety or depression. This is nothing at all to feel ashamed of, in fact facing up to your problems and taking action is something to be very proud of.

"I may have looked happy but inside I was hopelessly depressed."

Where Do I Go Next?

It is important to have someone to talk to and open up to. Someone who understands your situation but will never judge you. Someone who is independent and not involved in what is going on.

A local Newcastle and Gateshead based Counsellor or Psychotherapist such as myself can be that person who will listen to you and never judge you but will use their Counselling and Psychotherapy skills to help you to come to terms with your problems and ultimately overcome them.

Be smart, help yourself now.
– Mahatma Gandhi

  • About Me

    I became very interested in Counselling and Psychotherapy after suffering from anxiety for many years myself and I can fully understand how much of an impact this can have on all aspects of your life and your relationships. I am an accredited member of both The National Counselling Society and The National Hypnotherapy Society

    I believe we become emotionally unwell because we do not know how to manage the sudden and overwhelming emotions of a certain situation.

    “Most of the things we worry about are things that won’t even matter to us a few months from now.”

    Talking therapies, such as Counselling Psychotherapy or Hypnotherapy, help us to remember the situation and enable us to deal with the emotions and come to terms with what has happened allowing us to find more suitable ways to overcome and cope with these emotions.

    If you are within the Newcastle, Gateshead and Tyneside areas I can help you as a Counsellor, Psychotherapist and Hypnotherapist to make improvements to your life. Just contact me at [email protected]
