Booking & Costs

How to get started with counselling...

Thank you for you interest in our website. To take the next step, please contact us using the form below or by phoning using the number provided. We will get back to you as soon as possible and always within two working days. 

Please state whether it is Michaela or Julian who you wish to contact. We will not always be able to take your call, but if you leave your name and your number we'll call you back at the first available opportunity

Following this initial contact, we will arrange for you to visit for a free half hour consultation if you are an individual. For couples the initial session is charged at a reduced rate of £30 and lasts for about one hour and fifteen minutes.

The consultation is friendly and informal, but we will discuss your needs and what you want to get out of the counselling process. Following our discussion, if we both feel that counselling is the best option for you and you are happy to go ahead, we can arrange your next appointment.

Practice Location

We offer counselling from our comfortable and easily accessible practice, which is based in Whitley Bay. It is within a few minutes walk of both Whitley Bay and Cullercoats Metro stations. It also has convenient on-road parking.

Our therapy room is light and spacious, providing a safe relaxing and confidential setting for counselling sessions (see photo above).


We are happy to answer any questions you have by telephone or email.
