I am Michelle Robinson and I am passionate about helping people overcome life's challenges, assist them in recognising their innate strengths and collaboratively work towards achieving mental well-being, balance and benefit from their time in the counselling chair.
My experience has seen me working within the NHS, Charity sector as well as with children and young people in hospice and school settings and in private practice. I am experienced in working with attachment, self-esteem and self-image issues, depression, anxiety, grief, self-harm, and relationship issues and I value and respect diversity in our communities.
As a professional person-centred counsellor I offer a safe, non-judgmental and supportive space for you to explore what you are going through, find coping strategies, work through feelings, and find understanding. This can involve using creative materials and methods or pure talking therapy. From my own experience, I know how crucial it can be to feel heard and truly understood and how healing it can be to work through personal issues with a professional.
Whether you are feeling isolated, going through a stressful situation, finding it hard to manage and are overwhelmed by change or trying to live with past trauma talking to a trained counsellor can help.
Qualified in 2010 I am based in Morpeth, Northumberland and offer face to face, telephone and remote sessions. If you are looking for short-term exploration, regular long-term support, or just want to check in with how you feel about your life, I could be the right counsellor for you.
