Counselling with Kevin

Hello and thank you for visiting my website. If you are considering counselling you have taken a positive step to get this far - I know from my own experience it can feel scary to reach out.

I have been a counsellor since 2010, training in an NHS Primary Care setting over 3 years and qualifying in 2013. I then set up my own counselling practice in Newcastle City Centre where I have been working ever since. In that time I have worked with many clients - individuals, couples and family groups from a wide range of backgrounds and ages, all bringing their unique experiences and personal life stories.

My aim is simple: to help you the client get close to what is troubling you, and to help you understand what needs to change, and how to make those changes, in order to make your life better.

Often my clients face a dilemma, not sure of how they feel or how to deal with situations or problems. I am a professionally trained psychotherapeutic counsellor and as such, I can help you identify and untangle what is going on, so that you can gain a clearer understanding of the issues affecting you and the solutions you need.

I believe we are all doing the best we can at every moment, with the internal resources we possess at that point in time. We have the ability to learn from our mistakes and build our resources to make better choices in the future.

I know private counselling costs precious money and time - so my aim is to provide affordable and effective counselling to get you to the better place you need as quickly as possible. Some clients achieve this in a small number of sessions, while other clients have ongoing life-situations and wish to work for longer periods. I work with a wide range of adult clients from all backgrounds and of all ages to address a very wide range of issues including:


Relationship issues (of any kind)
Anxiety
Depression
Stress
Abuse (past or present)
Issues around sexuality
Bullying (past or present)
Loss, bereavement and grieving
Loneliness
Trauma
General unhappiness or unease
Meaning and meaninglessness


Thank you for reading my page - I hope you get in touch so that I can help with the issues affecting you.

Kevin

Relationships are Everything!

Every problem you ever had, will have, or have now, are to do with your relationships with people in your life...

Romantic relationships!
Family relationships!
Work relationships!
Friendships!
Broken relationships!
Lost relationships!

We are relational creatures - we can't exist without relationships in our lives. When they go wrong it can have a profound effect upon us, causing us to go from happiness to despair in seconds.

One of the most powerful and often difficult to understand is your relationship with yourself - the longest, most complex, intimate relationship you've ever had.


Being half of a couple is tricky

Human beings are naturally predisposed to being in a close, loving relationship. However, finding such a relationship and being able to know if it meets enough of our individual needs can be tricky.
I often use the term 'matched vulnerability' when working with couples to help them understand their individual needs and where those needs align or differ in the relationship.

I also help couples understand where they are in their progression through the stages of relationship. Many couples stumble when the initial romance fades, feeling the relationship is not for them or that something has gone wrong, when in fact they may be experiencing a natural shift in depth within the relationship. I also help my clients rediscover their individual selves - the very selves which attracted the other person to begin with.

In relationship counselling I focus my clients to identify what is happening for each person, and what needs to change. I aim to create a fair, equal and balanced environment, helping each person to understand each other, why they are experiencing 'blockers' in their relationship and how to overcome them.
