About Relationships North East Supporting Individuals, Couples & Families in the North East
Unsure about the next step in your life? Feeling depressed, alone or stuck in a relationship that’s seems to be going nowhere? Step family issues? Need some support getting through?
Hi. I’m Graeme Armstrong, and I offer counselling in a confidential, nonjudgmental, safe and friendly environment. I work according to the Ethical Framework of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
I’ve been a counsellor now for over 15 years, and work with individuals, couples, and families. I am an experienced and qualified RELATE counsellor working in Northumberland and Tyneside and supervisor of counsellors, having over 15 years of experience working in a range of settings, including Children’s Centres and GP surgeries.
At the heart of my practice lies a passionate belief that although we all experience great pain and distress in our lives, we have the ability to heal and grow through this pain and find more enriching, creative and satisfying lives. It has been my honour to have helped hundreds of people on the counselling journey to do just that.
As a couple counsellor I work with relationships or marriages that are at a crossroads, relationships that are struggling after the impact of an affair or the loss of sexual feelings. There could be a host of individual issues that you are experiencing that also affect your relationship: bereavement, redundancy, “empty nest syndrome”, anxiety or depression. You might be divorced and wondering how best to handle the parental relationship. Do you feel threatened in your relationship and want to explore what’s happening?
Struggling with stepfamily issues? Wondering how or when to introduce your children to your new partner and their children? I can help with family counselling.
If it’s individual counselling you need, if you feel alone and have nobody to turn to, if you’re anxious, depressed or stressed at work, just been made redundant and uncertain of the next step, let me help you find your way through the mazes and muddles that life brings.
I’m here to help: make today a new beginning and call me on 07885 640 490 at the number above.
I’m Graeme Armstrong, I was born in 1959 in Newcastle upon Tyne where I lived for 4 years before moving to the North East coast.
I’ve had a variety of jobs and careers over the years, but counselling and mindfulness has brought me both the greatest job satisfaction and peace of all the various things I have done.
I work in a variety of ways to help people resolve or be with their life problems more effectively and grow. I don’t do a “one size fits all” treatment path but seek to listen and pay attention to what it is that is most effective for you right now (which might change over time).
In my opinion therapy is a healing process that involves body, mind and spirit; I look forward to working with you and bringing all of these aspects to help you on your journey.
