About Cheryl Smart (Child and Neurodiversity Counsellor)

Cheryl Smart is one of our counsellors at Newcastle Psychologist & Counselling, who specialises in providing counselling for children in Newcastle, and counselling for children and adults with autism, ADHD, and a range of other social, emotional and mental health difficulties that can impact our lives.

With her experience as a person-centred and humanistic therapist, as well as her skills in working with neurodiversity across the lifespan, Cheryl offers a range of therapies including play therapy, behavioural therapy, art therapy, talk therapy, and solution focused therapy.

Within her child counselling sessions, she helps children and young people to build emotional regulation and help solve difficulties so that they can experience a happy childhood life, and overcome the difficulties that come with that stage of life.

When working with neurodiversity across the lifespan, whether with children or adults, Cheryl is able to engage and adapt her sessions and counselling to best fit the needs of the client and help them get the most out their sessions so they can flourish in their day to day lives.

Experienced Child Counsellor

In addition to her work as our specialist Neurodiversity Counsellor in Newcastle, Cheryl has extensive experience working in schools, where she provides counselling for children and young people in Newcastle.

Throughout her time working in education settings, she has used her counselling skills to help clients to manage and overcome their problems, whether related to bullying, depression, anxiety, bereavement or any difficulties that might affect children and young people.

Cheryl’s counselling focuses on delivering client centred support that empowers individuals, and enables them to make informed decisions to help them solve their difficulties, whilst supporting them all the way.

Her specific areas of experience and expertise are working with autism, ADHD, recent trauma, depression, anxiety, transitions, bereavement, those with low self-esteem, and helping people overcome family issues.

Specialist Neurodiversity Counsellor

Cheryl decided to become a counsellor when she realised the importance that a happy childhood has, not only as a child but also later as an adult. 

From this, Cheryl was inspired to want to help children and young people in any way that she can.

As an accredited counsellor through the National Counselling and Psychotherapy Society (NCPS), Cheryl originally qualified in 2009, receiving a degree in Person Centred Counselling from Sunderland University.

In addition to these qualifications, Cheryl has also completed further training courses, with a Level 4 Certificate in Child and Adolescent Counselling through Open Study College to help her serve her clients and their families better..
