Hi, I'm David, my approach is to be a warm and caring psychologist who will work collaboratively with you to create a safe and trusting relationship where your challenges will be explored with sensitivity and honesty. My therapeutic style is compassionate & non-judgmental, with the aim of helping you to connect with your emotions to better develop a deeper understanding of yourself. I believe that while pain is inevitable in life, suffering does not need to be.

I work with a wide variety of presentations, including anxiety, family/life stress, relationships, and trauma. One of my main passions is helping people with binge eating, and the consequences of this on their body, self-esteem, and ability to live their best life. Also people preparing for weightloss surgery or who are struggling with life after surgery. I chose to specialise in this area because I have had similar life experienced and I feel these issues are ignored. There is a stigma. I want to be the person who stands up and specialises in helping people just like you.

I'm a Clinical Psychologist, Board Approved Supervisor, Accredited EMDR Practitioner. I love working with adolescents and adults. We can all face difficulties like anxiety, stress and depression at one time and we may need help to navigate these times. I also have a passion for working with people who have experienced trauma, including PTSD and attachment trauma/childhood difficulties. I have lots of experience with first responders and veterans. I use EMDR amongst other approaches, like parts work. I think I am warm, empathic, approachable and down to earth and it is important to me that you feel comfortable and safe.

Hi, I’m Ryan. I am a registered counsellor and psychotherapist, a husband, father, an advocate for your wellbeing. I hold a Masters degree in Counselling and Psychotherapy and offer my services in private practice both online and in-person. There are many reasons we may begin therapy; we may long for change or hope for opportunities for healing, growth and transformation. I want to help however I can. Helping people to understand themselves, navigate relationships, perceive the world more clearly, and discover meaning in life brings me great joy. Even better is helping people find their own innate resources to cope and to heal.

Emma is a qualified and registered psychotherapist and sexologist who is dedicated to providing destigmatising therapy that can be playful, cathartic, affirming, and enlightening all at once. She frequently sees clients in her office who are stuck in patterns of overthinking, emotional avoidance, and engaged with numbing tactics to cope. They seek a radiant and authentic version of themselves that they like, that connects with others, and feels inherently worthy of joy. They value themselves enough to hope for more. Emma is currently accepting psychotherapy and sex therapy referrals.

I work with clients across the lifespan (age 4 and above) to address a variety of life challenges, such as managing stress, anxiety and depression, as well as struggles with life transitions. Finding hope and recognising your resources can feel challenging when going through a rough patch. Through therapy sessions, I’ll support you in brainstorming for solutions to overcome your difficulties and celebrate your unique strengths. I also have a special interest in neurodiversity and the female presentation of ASD. Neurodiversity can often bring invisible challenges. Finding the right support from an understanding person is essential.

I practice Lacanian Psychoanalysis. Psychoanalysis is a talking work, or therapy, which aims to make an absolute difference to suffering. Lacan's psychoanalysis is based in the idea that the unconscious is structured like language. What you say reveals the unconscious processes that underlie any issues that are problematic for you, or recur. Psychoanalysis is the safe space where you can come to talk freely, without censorship and your analyst listens. There is no "correct" way to speak; the work of psychoanalysis is to find your own unique voice, especially of your unconscious.

Being a passionate advocate for non-directive Child-Centred Play Therapy, an approach which is backed by neuroscience and is strictly evidence based, I specialise in working therapeutically with families of children of 2-10 years old to support their child towards their full potential. I recognise the importance of facilitating parents with their involvement in the child's therapy by helping them to become therapeutic agents for their children. I have a special interest integrating this in therapy with children on the Autism Spectrum and with other developmental issues.
