Welcome to Eva Baker's website
I provide individual counselling and psychotherapy, and couple counselling. I work in a holistic way with a variety of issues that people bring.
Relationship issues, problems in living and bodily symptoms can appear when we are under stress or in conflict situations. They can keep us stuck or on the other hand lead to insight and self awareness that can change us and our relationship with others, promoting growth and well being.
The problems I have helped people to deal with include:
Stress arising from personal or work related issues
Ethnic identity and cultural issues
Low self esteem and lack of confidence
Depression, long or short term
Separation, loss and mourning
Loss of meaning, loss of direction
Anxiety, panic attacks, phobias, obsessive thoughts and actions
Issues around sexual self expression and intimacy
Sexual orientation and gender identity
Sexual abuse, sexual addiction
Emotional and physical abuse, domestic violence
Loss of health, disability, long term and terminal illness
Miscarriage, fertility, IVF
Loss of a pet, a home, a valued object or a project
Loss of a skill, a capacity, wealth, status, power, honour, ...
Blocks in creativity, and search for creative self expression
Weight problems and eating disorders
Addiction to smoking, alcohol, drugs, sex, internet, exercise, work, ...
Existential issues and moral dilemmas
I offer brief counselling and long term therapy. People vary in the amount of time it takes to resolve a problem, according to how deep-rooted the problem is.
My practice is based in a peaceful setting in Rothbury, Northumberland, within easy reach from Alnwick, Morpeth and Newcastle.
