Christine Wood, Counsellor. Counselling in Newcastle upon Tyne

I am often asked how it is that counselling can effect such positive change simply by the client telling their story and then us working together to uncover the real issues and deal with them in a meaningful way.  There is no simple answer; each client is so individual and unique.  Former clients have told me that the entire counselling process improved their wellbeing and they were glad they were able to avoid having to resort to medication.

My counselling career began with my graduation from Sunderland University with a Foundation Degree in Counselling. My training allowed me to meet a wide variety of clients, with an even wider variety of problems. That training laid the groundwork for what I now do every day,

I specialize, although not exclusively so, in  grief and bereavement counselling, helping my clients to work through the bereavement process, and being with them on their journey to find some way of living alongside their grief.

Stress, anxiety, life changes, depression, sexual issues and more, can all stem from loss of one kind or another. I work in a number of different venues across the North Tyneside and Newcastle upon Tyne area in order to offer my services to as many clients as I possibly can.

As much as private practice is at the heart of what I do, I also believe that it’s incredibly important to help with charitable organizations. To that end, I volunteer as a counsellor and supervisor for CRUSE Bereavement Care and Coping with Cancer, which is an organization that is very near and dear to my heart. Many of the clients that I have seen through the course of my career have lost friends and family members to cancer, which has allowed me insight to the pain and distress that this awful disease can create in others as well as in the person suffering from it.

Many people are quick to claim that the art of conversation is dead; I believe that talking about an issue can actually result in making you feel more alive than ever.

I feel fortunate that through counselling I have been able to help bring a positive life change to so many of my clients, and even though they might not be able to see, feel, or touch it, they have fed back to me the benefits that they have experienced as a result of counselling.
