Meet the Team

We employ a team of facilitators who work on a sessional or casual basis. We have a team of trained counsellors who work on a voluntary basis.


The core staff members are:

Lucinda Boocock

I facilitate courses like Anxiety Management, Coping With Depression, Positive About Me, Mood & Food and Better Out Than In (Anger Management). I am passionate about supporting women to feel more in control of their mental health and more positive about themselves.

I'm the first person you will meet or speak to when you contact Tyneside Women's Health.  I oversee all reception and administration tasks.

Elaine Slater

Chief Executive Officer

It is my responsibility to ensure that all of our services run smoothly by supporting the facilitators and administration staff behind the scenes.  If you would like to come and discuss any areas of improvement, areas of good practice or any suggestions you might have about new things we could try, I will be happy to listen.
