Chartered Clinical Psychologist – Dr Petra Carlsson-Mitchell

In my private practice, INPSYCHOLOGY, I specialise in Psychological therapies to people over the age of 18, who experience psychological, emotional and relational difficulties that have a debilitating impact on their quality of life. 

I offer individually tailored psychological therapy to work alongside each person to; make sense of what have caused their difficulties, develop a sense of self and identifying personal needs, strengthen resources and skills to cope with the ups and downs of life. The goal of therapy, as I see it, is an overall improvement in the person’s general wellbeing as well as equipping them to continue to grow and thrive.

To carry out these fundamental changes, I implement evidence based psychological therapies that are responsive to difficulties related to: complex trauma, PTSD, loss, grief, lack of sense of self, interpersonal difficulties, low self-worth and self-confidence, shame, guilt, depression and anxiety. 

My core service involves offering individual therapy.  However, mental health concerns, particularly when they are long term and deep rooted can be very stressful for people who stand close to the individual and my service also extends to offer psychological sessions and consultations for parents, partners carers and couples. 

The client is at the heart of therapy. I take an active non-judgemental stance to ensure that their needs are met, they feel safe and listened to. And, I cheerlead clients to stay motivated through therapy by encouraging them to take responsibility and ownership of their work.

I offer a free 15-minute telephone consultation as well as a reduced rate Early Consultation session. This is a pre-therapy session where we would begin to make sense of your difficulties and weigh up the pros and cons for entering into therapy. Or, if you just have a question, please don’t hesitate to contact me by email or by phone on 07931583115.

Counsellor & Psychotherapist - Lorna Kemp


Welcome to my profile. I offer:​


· Counselling and Psychotherapy to children over 16, adults and couples. This can be short-term solution focussed or longer term, depending on individual requirements.

· Clinical supervision to therapists and multi-disciplinary professionals including those who work with children.

· Training, Workshops, Professional Support and Consultation to businesses, agencies and organizations.

I am a fully qualified and Senior Accredited Member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and am also a certified online practitioner. I have lived and worked in Tynedale for 30 years + and have over 25 years’ experience around the North-East of working therapeutically with children, adults, couples and families within the NHS, schools, national children’s charities and also privately. I have worked in prisons delivering professional support to staff, and am also a trained and experienced clinical supervisor and trainer.   


Prior to commencing my career in counselling, my professional life covered a wide spectrum which I regard as having provided me with a host of experiences and learning opportunities that have given me invaluable life experience and a solid foundation for therapeutic work.


My therapeutic approach is Person Centred and I sometimes integrate other approaches. This means the way in which I work is always informed by the client, believing that the relationship is the most important aspect of therapy. I want to support people to feel enabled to make appropriate choices for themselves in order to feel stronger and safer. I have a firm belief in children’s and adults’ capacity to shift their perspective and fulfil their potential, given the right non-judgmental encouragement and support.


I regularly use creative methods and I have worked with a wide range of difficulties. One particular specialism is working with children and adults who have experienced child sexual abuse.​ Safeguarding is always paramount.


Please ask about anything you would want to know – I am happy to answer any queries about how I work to help you decide if you think I am the right person for you. You can ring 07940 465 131 or email:

Psychotherapeutic Counsellor - Adam Eagle MBACP


I am a Psychotherapeutic Counsellor, meaning I can, where needed and in agreement with the client, work at a deeper level than some Counsellors.  I was trained at a BACP-accredited institution and am a member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy).


I see clients at The Bodywork Centre in Hexham on Mondays. The Centre has comfortable, quiet rooms ideal for therapy.  It is centrally located with parking nearby.  


I work with adults, seeing both men and women, but don’t do couples counselling.  The issues that clients and I work on include loss, trauma, relationship problems, control, anger, depression, anxiety and issues from the past.  If I was to describe my view of therapy in a few words I would say it is about healing, change and growth.  


I am in my 50’s and live in Northumberland.  Before training as a counsellor I had careers in publishing and the charity sector, including running my own company.  I have also experienced periods of unemployment.

Chartered Counselling Psychologist  - Dr Judi Sharifi PsyD

As a person-centred, integrative psychologist, I draw from a number of evidence-based approaches to provide therapy that is tailored to suit your personal needs. With over thirty years of experience working in adult mental health in the NHS and independently, I have come to understand that how we relate to ourselves and others is at the heart of our difficulties. I have specialist experience of issues affecting older people and people facing social injustice.


By providing you with a safe place to share your story, the journey can begin where, together, we will identify those familiar patterns that seem to trap you in unhelpful ways of thinking, feeling and behaving. With warmth, compassion and humour, we will find a way to help you towards recovery and wellbeing. Above all, you will see that you are not the problem, but perhaps you are feeling overwhelmed at the moment by work, family, relationship difficulties, or simply life in general.


I offer assessments and treatment for a range of anxiety, mood and other disorders, as well as general life coaching.


I am registered with the British Association for Mindfulness Based Approaches (BAMBA) and have over ten years of experience teaching courses in mindfulness (stress reduction; mindfulness in the workplace; mindfulness based cognitive therapy) as well as personal meditation coaching. 


Do contact me if you wish to discuss this further, or have any questions.  I offer a free 15 mins telephone consultation.
