Welcome to Northern Tides

Counselling and Consultancy

Space and time to explore your thoughts and feelings

Are you struggling with an issue that is holding you back and preventing you from living the life you want for yourself?

You may feel stuck, or lost, and unsure of how to move forward and achieve your goals. This is perfectly natural – from time to time we all need support in our lives to help us make sense of our feelings and to find ways to manage our emotions better. By reaching out, you have taken the first step towards achieving greater self awareness and being able to make more positive choices in your life.

Hello and welcome, I’m Lucy, a person centred, integrative counsellor and I provide counselling and clinical supervision in North Shields and online. I offer counselling for adults and couples on a short or long term basis. I can help you address challenges you may be facing by offering you a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space for us to explore what is troubling you and to support you in developing the skills needed to move forward in your life.

How Can Counselling Help?

In our hectic lives, rarely do we get the time to explore our emotions and reflect on our experiences. Through counselling, you will be given the opportunity to share your experiences so you can better understand the issues that are holding you back and develop ways to integrate them into your life. I believe every client has the power to find their own answers within, therefore as your counsellor I am not here to fix you, but I will listen with empathy to help you find the root cause of your issues, and I can offer a fresh perspective to help you develop greater self-awareness and understand yourself better. This way, you can move towards greater independence and with the confidence that you can tackle whatever lies ahead.

For more information about how Northern Tides Counselling and Consultancy can help, please see my ‘Working with Me page.

Are you struggling with a specific issue such as anxiety, depression or grief? Or do you just know that something isn’t right, something is holding you back and preventing you from living your life on your terms. Whatever brings you to counselling, we can work through this together so you can understand yourself and the root cause of your struggles and find ways to cope with your emotions and enhance your wellbeing.

Couples Counselling

All couples can have their ups and downs. Everyday life can cause pressures leading couples to feel their relationship is fractured or broken? Maybe you are arguing more or struggling to cope with challenges or changes in your life? Through couples counselling, we can explore the issues in your relationship and find ways for you both to move forward.

90 min sessions are available.

Clinical Supervision

As your supervisor, I can provide you with a safe space to discuss and explore your clinical work, the healthy challenge that is necessary for your practice to grow and develop. We will explore all aspects of your practice, from reflecting on your client work, to exploring developmental opportunities through CPD. This way, you can offer the best service possible for your clients.
