Do you need support from a counsellor or therapist in Newcastle under Lyme, North Staffordshire, (we also cover Stoke on Trent and South Cheshire)? Whatever your problem, at New Page Counselling Services, we can help you to move forward with your life.
New Page Counselling Service is owned and run by Lynn Page, (PGDip in psychotherapeutic Counselling). I am a member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (MBACP), and I am bound by its codes of Ethics and Practice, and am working towards accreditation in that organisation.
I am a practising therapist and counsellor in Newcastle Under Lyme, North Staffordshire and am committed to providing psychotherapeutic counselling in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment.
I work with adults and couples over the age of 18, and offer both short term therapy, (8 to 10 sessions) which can sometimes be all you need if you are having problems with a particular issue, and Long term, open ended therapy, which if you have suffered with chronic trauma in childhood or adverse childhood experiences, for example, can help you move forward gently and safely to a meaningful future.
I also run ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy) courses in a block of 8 sessions, this can be done on an individual basis, in my therapy room, or in a group of 6 to 8 people, (another venue is required for this). ACT is especially effective if you are struggling with anxiety, for example, and don’t wish to delve too deeply into the root causes at the present time.
As a therapist I am experienced in helping clients who have experienced difficulties with :
I also provide Therapeutic Coaching, if you feel stuck either in your personal life or your career, we can work on setting and achieving goals, that fit in with your values. Values are incredibly important, because they represent what you want your life to stand for, they give our life meaning, and provide us with satisfaction, both in a work situation and in our personal life. Values are a very personal thing, they are not something that other people can impose upon us, but something that gives our life direction. Sometimes we need help to work out what those values are, and then set goals in accordance with them which will help to make our lives rich and meaningful.
Coaching can help if you have not been in work for some time, for whatever reason, and wish to return to work but have no idea how to begin. If you are in a job where you feel stagnant and get little or no job satisfaction, if your confidence and self esteem are low, if you have reached a point in your life where you feel that you have no purpose, for instance if your children have grown up and moved away and you feel lost, or in any of those life transition stages, such as retirement, menopause, or redundancy.
