Pneuma Psychotherapy

Psychotherapy in Stockton-on-Tees & Newcastle upon Tyne

Hello, I'm Michael Blades

I'm a full member of the UCKP and also a member of the BACP (MBACP).

I believe in a whole-person approach to psychotherapy that equally values the body, feelings, mind, soul and spirit. I work with various influences to encourage you to develop yourself and your relationship with others and society.

Since 2018 I have been practicing as an integrative and relational psychotherapist. After undertaking further academic research, this enabled me to develop the unique Transpersonal perspective that I bring to my practice. I've since worked within the NHS, charitable and educational sectors. I currently work with various private clients from all walks of life, and part of my service is supporting trainee psychotherapists and counsellors.

I believe in providing an empathic, accepting and authentic relationship that allows you to feel safe and explore yourself more deeply. I work in the present moment, exploring your experiences as they emerge in the space between us. I’m particularly interested in the spiritual dimension of life and its place in psychotherapy, which underpins the whole-person approach. It's a very satisfying role to help individuals discover their true, authentic selves.
