If you are struggling with relationships, loss, stress, or feeling lost and overwhelmed, you might feel like you’re stuck, don’t know where to turn or how to move forward. Sometimes we don’t know what to say, how to say it or even fully understand what we are feeling; it’s often not just one thing that we are feeling but a complex mix of different emotions.

My approach is the same with every client, to make life less about just surviving and more about thriving. I know starting counselling can feel intimidating and selecting a counsellor to work with can feel overwhelming, so I offer a free 20minute introductory call. This is to provide you with the time to ask any questions you may have and get a feel for me. I offer a safe space for you to speak honestly and openly about what you are feeling and going through. I will work alongside you to help further your understanding of why you are feeling the way you do or how what you have experienced has impacted you.

Hello, I’m Heidi. Welcome to my profile. To find you here most likely means you're looking for someone to help you overcome the mental health issues you're facing. Maybe you're struggling with depression and are finding it hard to motivate yourself to do much of anything. Or perhaps anxiety is controlling your life and stopping you from taking the opportunities you would like to give yourself. You might have experienced trauma and are bogged down by the past. Whether your problem is excessive worry, intrusive thoughts, panic attacks or low self-esteem, I am confident I can help you achieve a better quality of life.

For the past 15 years I have offered clients a therapeutic approach that has helped them develop an inner compass; a resource with which to find themselves when they were lost, a means of navigating rough waters and an anchor in the storm. It is an approach that enables the letting go of unhelpful learning and habits such as self-criticism, guilt, fear and shame; promoting the acceptance of self and other.

My background is in child bereavement, supporting families through the loss of a child. This is close to my heart, and I feel passionate about it. I understand the complexities of how life is very different, and days can feel like there is a grey cloud above you. I have worked with young people in schools, which I found fulfilling, working with students between the ages of 11 and 16 with issues such as anxiety, self-harm, bullying, sexuality, and not feeling like they belong, to name a few. I have been able to put age-appropriate techniques and strategies in place to minimise the feelings they are having.

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 Ashton-in-Makerfield?
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 Ashton-in-Makerfield 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.
