A warm welcome to you. As a humanistic counsellor, my focus is to support you in re-discovering your innate sense of goodness and wholeness. Whether your troubles are underpinned by trauma or overall depressed feelings, our work together can build an understanding of who you are and what you need. I offer a genuine curiosity and a gentle offering of what emerges for me as you share. This can be a powerful tool in therapy, particually if you experience your belief system as rigid or fixed and wish to explore a fuller view of yourself. I always respect and honour your journey so far, and your innate desire to grow.

You might be feeling low, anxious, stuck in a rut in a relationship or at work or, alternatively, repeating the same old mistakes. You might have decided it's time to make sense of things that have happened in the past or wondering how to resolve a situation that's happening right now. Perhaps things are feeling very distressing or difficult. You might be looking for clarity and a way forward or just some space to be heard.

Therapy is one time when it is all about you. Your experiences, your feelings. When things feel difficult – whether or not you know the reasons why, therapy can really help. How? At the heart of therapy is your relationship with your therapist. When your therapist offers you space to think and to feel, uninterrupted and without judgement, you can start to make more sense of things, together. So it’s important to find a good connection. There are many types of therapist – it’s not necessarily sensible shoes and long silences.

My name is Karine Flynn (MSc, MBPsS, Spc.ABA) and for the past 20 years I have been helping people understand, accept and love themselves better. My clients come to me because they do not want to spend years in therapy; instead, they wish to spend more time loving and living the lives they have. By replacing old patterns of behaviour that no longer serve you, my job is to guide you into making that a reality! Together we will find the wounds that need healing, identify the changes that could that place, and start building a life that feels more aligned, helping you regain power and take ownership of your own life.

A warm welcome to you. I’m Celia and I work with women to strengthen their self-esteem. If you constantly feel ‘not good enough’, you’re afraid that life’s opportunities are passing you by or you’re stifled by the need to constantly people please, then self esteem counselling may be for you. We live in a high pressure world and many things can rock our self-esteem – a difficult childhood, a hurtful comment or a disappointing relationship. But self-esteem can be renewed and repaired. Many of my clients report feeling significantly better after completing our counselling sessions together.

I offer therapy to adults, young people, and couples. Counselling can help when we feel stuck, lost and overwhelmed and can’t find a way to make sense of those difficult feelings on our own. Speaking to someone who isn’t a friend or family member can help you to see a problem from a different perspective, without judgement or bias. You may be struggling with feelings of sadness, anxiety, stress, anger or loss. Perhaps you'd like to find the mental tools to help give you greater resilience and confidence. Or you could be looking for ways to manage conflict and improve communication within your personal relationships.

Experiencing problems or difficulties can impact on our feelings, behaviour, relationships and ability to engage in learning and growing - children and young people are no different! Poor mental health can cause disruptions to a child’s life and without appropriate support it can stay with them throughout their adult life, affecting their long-term wellbeing and ability to reach their full potential. Sometimes it is difficult to speak to people we feel closest too, we don't want to upset or worry them. Counselling offers a child a regular, private safe space to express and explore any worries and difficult feelings.

Asking for help can be difficult and contacting a therapist may feel scary. That’s why from our first contact I aim to create a safe, confidential non-judgemental space for you to explore your difficulties. Talking to a therapist offers a different perspective on how you feel and relate to others. We’ll draw on your past and present to find new ways to move forward for the best future for you. We can all get stuck reacting in ways that are not always useful to our wellbeing. Working with a psychotherapist brings insight into how we react, why we react that way, and changing negative patterns thinking, feeling and behaviour.
