Elsie Owen MBACP

Counselling & Therapy in Jesmond, Newcastle

If you have come across my website because you’re facing a challenging time right now, I would love the opportunity to support you in beginning your journey to creating the changes you hope for. 

Maybe work is making you anxious or your romantic relationship feels strained. You might find yourself replaying situations or events from the past, unsure of how to move forward. Life might feel boring, your relationships may feel unfulfilling. Perhaps you compare yourself to friends or co-workers and feel like you are failing. Maybe you consider yourself to have low self-esteem but don’t really know how to become more confident. 

 I offer counselling and therapy to adults from my two therapy rooms, both in central Jesmond, that focuses on: 

Overcoming depression, low-mood and dissatisfaction

Transforming low self-esteem, self-confidence and self-worth

Exploring problematic & unhelpful habits & patterns

My goal is to welcome you into a friendly, relaxed and gentle space where I will ask questions about you and your life. I want to understand what it’s like to be you - how you think, feel and how you see yourself. 

I draw on tools from the person-centred, Transactional Analysis and creative approaches to figure out a way of working that is best suited to you, who you are and what you bring. 

If you would like to find out if the way I work suits you, the next step is to email me to organise a free initial phone call or book a half-price initial session. 

This is our chance to speak or meet, test the waters and explore any questions you have. There is no obligation to enter into therapy with me; you are welcome to use this as an opportunity to work out what you want and need.


If at the end of our chat we conclude that I’m not the right therapist for you, I’m very happy to make helpful recommendations to support you in finding someone else.  


I look forward to hearing from you.
