As a BACP accredited counsellor I have over 12 years experience of working with individuals with a variety of emotional difficulties. These include but are not limited to depression, anxiety, trauma, marital problems, low self esteem, existential anxieties and relationship difficulties. At the core of what I offer is building a trusting, non judgmental relationship so that you can feel safe enough to explore deeper feelings, and very importantly find your own, sustainable solutions or sometimes just find your way of managing and accepting certain difficulties. I also have many years experience of working with counselling students.

Life can be a real struggle; the things other people seem able to deal with can leave us feeling exhausted. demoralised, and desperate. Finding someone to talk to can be really difficult because friends and family always have an opinion and can often make us feel judged or inadequate. As a person-centred therapist I know that you are the expert in your own life; only you know how you feel. Talking to someone who is actively listening to you, who makes no judgement, and accepts you for who you, are can be transformative. Not only does it make you feel heard and validated, it can help you to better emotional and physical health

Life can sometimes be difficult and we may find ourselves struggling and feeling anxious, depressed and unconfident. We may find ourselves battling with the feelings evoked by loss, due to bereavement, relationship breakdown or even the children leaving home. Counselling is not a magic cure, but talking to an empathic, skilled therapist can help; fostering both the processing of difficult feelings and resilience to better deal with what life throws at us, enabling us to move forward. The effect of just being listened to by those who have hitherto struggled to be heard can be both powerful and empowering.

A warm, relational approach is the foundation of my work with children, young people and their parents. As an Integrative Child and Adolescent Psychotherapist, I aim to enable each person to communicate and feel understood from the depth of their experience. This means finding each person's unique ways of expressing themselves, and tailoring my technique to meet them "where they're at". I create a safe space so that children and young people are able to bring their most painful feelings and thoughts out into the room with me. At the same time, humour and fun are important elements of my work.

Hi there, my name is Ellie and I am a Counsellor specializing in trauma and the common coping skills that develop from it's effects. These include the areas of disordered eating, body image issues (including body dysmorphia), addiction (self-medicating to avoid the effects of trauma), being drawn to abusive relationships and patterns of becoming stuck and paralyzed in these damaging dynamics. The heart of my therapeutic work is to help clients discover their authentic self and to gently dis-engage from painful old beliefs they may have internalized from complex and overwhelming environments.

Do you feel overwhelmed, on edge and struggle to relax? Are you drained and burnt out? Do you ruminate about the past or worry about the future? Is your confidence low? Do you have high standards for yourself- often not feeling good enough? Do you have a harsh self-critic? Has something bad happened that you are struggling to deal with? Do these difficulties show up in your personal and/or your work life? I am a Clinical Psychologist and I understand that life can be hard and that we can be affected by stressors that pile up overtime causing our glass to eventually overflow and by events that rock us to our core.

Hi I'm Sophie. Are you feeling anxious, stressed, overwhelmed, looking to make a change in your life? If yes, then I am here for you. I specialise in supporting clients in these areas. We all feel anxious or stressed at some points in our life's, its actually a natural response in certain situations, for example if you are in danger. The problem occurs when it becomes an unnatural response, where you feel like its effecting your life in a negative way. Occurring to often, or when your not in a dangerous situation, this is when you may need additional support.

Sometimes we all need additional support to navigate difficult times and making a decision to seek help for our personal problems can be daunting. I believe in creating a safe space to work together, where you are the expert in your own experiences and I have the experience and expertise in psychological theories and techniques. I believe that by bringing together this expertise we can work together to enable you to achieve your unique personal goals. Some of the relationship problems I work with include communication issues, affairs and betrayals, family issues, parenting issues, separation and divorce.

Hi. I am dedicated to helping people develop a better understanding of their true selves and consequently the way they approach relationships and life events. When life brings uncomfortable and sometimes unbearable emotions, it can be easier to run or hide from them. This may work in the short-term, but is often not a sustainable approach for a happy and healthy mind. By working together, we can make sense of your thoughts and feelings, leading to better emotional and mental wellbeing. All ranges of emotions are welcome and can be explored in a safe, supportive, non-judgemental manner, helping you gain insight into your inner world.

Have you reached a point where you sense you just can’t carry on feeling this way? Maybe it’s a recent breakup, or a build up of feelings that’s just all become too much to cope with on your own. Perhaps you are carrying a silent pain that you wish the people around you could see. Maybe you are tired of not feeling understood by those closest to you. I wonder if you have lost your trust in others, and reaching out for help often feels impossible. I specialize in working with people to make sense of their past and how it is affecting the present. You are really not alone, and I would like to help, your feelings do matter.

Sometimes life can be difficult or challenging. Maybe you are struggling feelings such as sadness, anxiety, anger, depression, stress, worry, guilt, or shame? Perhaps something has particularly knocked you sideways, your usual means to cope with life’s challenges no longer suffice or not the solution? Or do you find yourself feeling lost or empty, or caught up in a cycle of thinking or behaving that is affecting your emotional well being or making life, work or relationships difficult? Have you and your partner got into stuck ways of relating? Is this leaving you feeling hurt, sad or lonely? Are you hurting the ones you love?

Are you trying to make sense of your life right now, and don't understand what's happening or why you're not coping so well with every day life? Perhaps you feel alone from a loss or breakdown of a relationship. There could be events from your past that interfere in your life today, do you wish to explore and understand why this is happening? Maybe your emotions are becoming increasingly difficult to cope with. Are you finding your relationship with family or friends difficult or strained or perhaps you'd like to feel more confident. These are some of the challenges we face and perhaps you would like some help to overcome these.

Being human is hard, but you don't have to go it alone. I can help you understand yourself better and improve your relationship with yourself and others, to ultimately live a more fulfilling life. My primary modality is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) with a holistic, personalised approach. A lot of my clients happen to be students or work in post-doc positions, but I have worked with people from diverse backgrounds on a variety of issues. I have an interest in working with anxiety and related issues, such as procrastination and perfectionism, and am passionate about how video games can support well-being.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, psychologist, or counsellor, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counsellor in CO1?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in CO1 specialise in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or counsellor who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

Can I afford counselling?
Yes. Most counsellors offer reasonable rates or will work on a sliding scale basis. Many accept health insurance. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the counsellor.
