Location: Newcastle upon Tyne

My name is Vicki McKeown. I have 10 years’ experience of working directly with clients; the nature of my work has evolved over time. After qualifying with an MA in Social Work I quickly realised I was unable to do the in depth therapeutic work required to resolve underlying issues, repair disrupted attachments and process early childhood trauma. This resulted in me going on to train as a Psychotherapeutic Counsellor and EMDR Practitioner. I have been in private practice since 2016 based in North Shields and working with clients across the North East. I take an integrative approach to counselling, bringing together a number of therapies and schools of thought. This enables me to work in the best and most tailored way for you, the client.

Alongside private practice I also work with Adopted Children and their Families through North East Adoption Therapy Services (NEATS). I provide dyadic therapy to address disrupted attachment and early childhood trauma using EMDR.

I am an accredited member of the National Counselling Society (NCS) and also continue to be registered with Social Work England.
