maria_albertsen_counsellorHi, my name is Maria Albertsen and I’d like to welcome you to my site.

Counselling at the Coast is a private counselling & psychotherapy service based within Whitley Bay, Tyne and Wear.

Making the decision to see a therapist is a big step forward in dealing with whatever issues are troubling you.  I understand that it is often an anxious and daunting step to take and I aim to provide you with enough information to help you decide if therapy is the right choice for you.

Counselling and psychotherapy takes place in a comfortable and supportive environment, in which you set the agenda.  You will be listened to, accepted and respected regardless of what issues you bring.  I will not judge you or tell you what to do but will support you to work through any difficulties you may be experiencing and make any decisions that you feel are right for you.

So please take a look around my site and feel free to get in contact if you would like to arrange a session or just have a question to ask.

Kind regards
