Counselling and psychotherapy in Morpeth and Newcastle upon Tyne
Do you feel like life is getting on top of you?
Do you feel stuck or overwhelmed by your emotions?
Or do you find that, no matter what, you always end up in the same place?
Welcome to my website. My name is Anna Dallavalle and I have been a practising counsellor in the North East for the past 12 years. I am committed to providing counselling and psychotherapy in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment. I am a Registered Accredited counsellor with The British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
One of the most common questions I get is "what is counselling?"
Counselling is a space for you to explore long-standing issues or recently developed difficulties or challenges. It is your time and you set the pace of the work. Some people find it helpful to set objectives that they want to reach by the end of the work while others prefer to keep the conversation more fluid. In general, counselling aims to improve your quality of life.
My practice is within easy reach of Morpeth, Northumberland and Newcastle upon Tyne.
COVID 19 UPDATE - SINCE THE BEGINNING OF LOCKDOWN I HAVE BEEN WORKING REMOTELY TO HELP KEEP EVERYONE SAFE.
Myths about counselling
MY COUNSELLOR WILL TELL ME WHAT TO DO
The role of the counsellor is not to offer you advice or tell you what you should do.
Your counsellor will help you find your own solution to your problems in a way that works for you.
COUNSELLING WILL TAKE FOREVER
During the first session, the client sets out their goals for counselling. If they are only available for a limited number of sessions it is important that they tell their counsellor so that realistic goals can be set.
