Graeme works as a Counsellor with Individuals, Couples, Families and young people over 11.
Trained by Relate and The Tavistock Centre for Couple Relationships, Graeme has over 23 years of experience as a relationship and marriage counsellor. Graeme previously worked for Relate Northumberland and Tyneside for over 13 years as a couple counsellor and a supervisor, for ten years in two G.P. surgeries in Newcastle and in three Sure Start Centres in Gateshead. Since 2015 he has maintained a successful private practice based in Jesmond.
He works with individuals, couples and families with an often-complex range of issues such as separation and divorce, affairs, domestic violence, the influence of mental health on relationships and the impact of separation on children.
Graeme also works with divorcing couples who feel they have drifted apart and want to manage family change and separate amicably.
Graeme is highly skilled at helping individuals and couples experiencing separation, process their thoughts, feelings and their circumstances, helping them to plan and implement the next stage of their life’s journey.
He has a passionate belief that although we all experience great pain and distress in our lives, we all have the ability to heal and grow through this pain and find more enriching, creative and satisfying lives. He works in a variety of ways to help people either resolve or live with their life problems more effectively. Graeme is available via face-to-face meetings or online.
