Hi and thank you for visiting my profile. Opening up can be hard, I feel it is better to share a problem than to deal with it yourself. I enjoy helping people make sense of their experiences and finding different ways of living. I value hearing each person's story and helping them to find inner calm, clarity and understanding.
Thank you for taking the time to look at my profile. Sometimes we all need someone to talk to, life can become overwhelming, confusing, or distressing for all of us. At difficult times in our lives sometimes talking to friends or family just isn't enough and an impartial, objective ear can be just what is needed to enable you to untangle your thoughts, just like a ball of wool, or to lift the fog that you're feeling so that things become a little clearer. As a counsellor I can offer that place where you can talk without judgement, have your time to be heard and speak openly about what is happening in your life.
If you have been struggling with anxiety, self-criticism, shame, low mood, difficult emotions & relationships, it may be the right time to find a trusted therapist; someone to help you understand & grow from the effects of adversity, stress & trauma. Our wellbeing can be affected by many things - work stress, early adversity, significant trauma or relationships, and we do our best to find helpful coping strategies. When our ways of coping don't work so well, we can feel stuck and isolated - psychological therapy can help us move beyond those barriers. I focus on you as an individual, without using labels or diagnoses.
Congratulations on taking the first step towards dealing with yours or a loved ones addiction. If you have struggled with any form of addiction or been affected by a loved ones addiction then I imagine you have tried and tried again to get a handle on this problem. If you are reading this then I suspect it hasn’t worked on your own and you are looking for some tools to help you finally achieve the outcomes you are aiming for. Addiction is difficult to treat without professional guidance. I have worked as a qualified therapist working with addiction for over 20 years and know how to help once help is asked for.

Hello, welcome to my profile. I am a fully qualified practitioner offering counselling and psychotherapy to adults, couples and teenagers. It’s very natural to feel worried, down, confused and frustrated at some time in our lives, most of us do. The stresses of modern life, particularly the challenges of the past couple of years, can simply become too much. When unhelpful thoughts, feelings and behaviours start to affect your life and relationships with those around you, it may be time to consider getting help to make sense of what’s going on. I will help you to gain the insight and clarity to find a positive way forward.
Hello there, does any of following feel familiar for you? Feeling, depressed, anxious, low self esteem, confused or difficulty feeling connected to people. Maybe you worry about yourself.

I offer a safe, compassionate environment to understand your needs, at a pace comfortable for you. I work relationally, to develop a working relationship for us to understand your experiences, perceptions, behavioural patterns, body's response and emotions. I work with Adults 18 or older.
Hello ! Thank you for viewing this profile. I provide solution focused hypnotherapy and integrative counselling, EFT & NLP, helping you with confidence, self-esteem and positivity. Tackling anxiety, phobias, depression, weight management and more. I offer a free initial consultation which can be booked at www.greatmindsclinic.co.uk and choose 'book now' from the top of the screen. .
My background is 15+ years in healthcare, specifically working in the area of mental health, anxiety, depression and low self esteem. I have a strong passion of supporting people living with Dementia (and their loved ones) and can provide a specific level of support in this regard. I hold a BA in Counselling & Psychotherapy from ICHAS Dublin, a HND in Social Care Practice, and I am a Registered Member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (MBACP). I have experience working as an immediate support counsellor offering support to employees of frontline services, including the NHS and the Police force.
It isn't often, in our everyday lives, that we feel truly heard, understood and accepted without sensing judgement or criticism from others. I deeply acknowledge and understand the loneliness that comes from struggling in silence with life's difficulties. Therapy offers you a calm space to begin to tell your story; permission to pause and reflect on what you have been through, validate your response to trauma and loss and gently navigate the path forward. I will support you on your therapeutic journey, gently empowering you to realise your inner resources and ways of coping and navigating your world so that you feel more in control.
People decide to look for therapy for many reasons; stress, anxiety or depression, difficulties in relationships; anything that's stopping them living the life they want. I place importance on helping clients understand the causes, not simply focusing on the symptoms. Ultimately, knowing yourself better is the key to a more fulfilling life, with improved relationships and feeling better within yourself on a day to day basis.
Welcome! I hope that my words here help you to feel seen and leave you feeling hopeful of a better tomorrow. I am passionate about normalising seeking support when we need to. It is a gift to yourself and your future generations. It's important to know that we all experience times in our life that are overwhelming, challenging and sometimes paralysing. I firmly believe that you do not need to have experienced something catastrophic to justify why you might be finding things difficult. I will help you to discover a new way of moving forward which feels positive, and is aligned with who you are and what you want for your life.
I work with couples enabling and empowering them to experience renewed passion and connectivity. I also work with individuals using EFT to empowering them to heal themselves. Couples may be searching for love and passion perhaps after empty nest, affairs emotional or physical. At the other end of the scale many young couples who are unsure whether to commit to a particular relationship and want guidance, assurance. They gain tools and insights how to make marriage work better than the models they may have had. Age range of clients is from 18-80 to date and I am passionate about helping singles/couples to move on.
Whether it’s anxiety, trauma, stress, low mood, difficult thoughts, low confidence, relationship difficulties or a whole host of other potential reasons for emotional distress I have nearly 2 decades experience working within the NHS and private practice with a full range of psychological difficulties. I also work at the University of Liverpool helping to train clinical psychologists entering the profession. I take a collaborative approach with clients to identify their current difficulties and what therapeutic approach might help make positive steps towards change.
