Independent Counselling: David Simon. Newcastle upon Tyne

Hello!  My name is David Simon and I am a therapeutic counsellor. My practice is centrally located on Dean Street in Newcastle upon Tyne city centre, only a few minutes’ walk from Central Station.

Covid-19 update: During these challenging times the safety, health and well-being of my clients is an absolute priority. With this in mind, for the time being counselling sessions will be conducted online, unless we agree that meeting in person is preferable. Further details about online work are here. Please get in touch to discuss how this can work for you.


The type of counselling I offer is called Person-Centred. I work face-to-face with adult clients in a private and confidential setting. Using my skills, training and experience, my aim is to help you find your way through the difficulties you are experiencing, toward a more fulfilled life.

This is achieved by offering a safe, therapeutic environment in which you and I can work together, exploring any emotionally difficult and/or complex personal issues. By actively listening to you, and genuinely trying to understand and fully accept who you are, a therapeutic relationship can form. With an effective rapport established, in which you are neither judged nor pushed but instead supported and encouraged, you are free to find your own way.

I understand that deciding to seek professional help can feel like a big step, so I am happy to offer a half-price consultation. I hope that we can arrange a meeting soon.

Thank you for visiting my website. Please explore. Do contact me if you feel you would like to pursue the idea of counselling further.
