Hello, my name is Cornetta and I am the mother of an adult child. I grew up in a difficult home environment and experienced ACE. I am often asked why have I been able to stay centred and grounded. I laugh and say “I have made lots of mistakes and I am human!’ Reflecting on this, I feel it’s my ability to listen, learn, and reflect but most of all to look at my life with compassion, acceptance, openness, and love. If you feel I can be of service and help please contact me and read some more. I am an integrative addiction therapist and psychotherapist. As a result of working in different settings,

Every therapy session will more than likely be a journey. Emotions run high because feeling and memories emerge that you may have not been prepared for so it's important that you feel comfortable, safe and supported. The therapy session should be a judgement free zone where you are listened to but also challenged while your boundaries are respected. You shouldn't feel the need to filter yourself, let it be your time for expression because that time is solely about you and how you're feeling. Not every session will leave you feeling emotionally raw because therapy is as much about your good days as it is your bad. Enjoy the process.

Are you struggling right now? Maybe with panic, fear, general anxiety? Maybe your teenager is having difficulties. Are you struggling with Domestic Abuse? Would you like to explore the root of your problems and be in a better place? If so, I may be the counsellor you are looking for. Sometimes in life we all struggle, and it is important to recognise this and seek some self-care. Life for a teenager can be particularly difficult but an area I have worked in for 35 years. Counselling can seem like a very daunting experience and leave you wondering what to expect, what counselling could do for you or whether this will help you.

Hi, welcome to this page. There might be several reasons why you are looking to start therapy: Maybe you feel stuck and don’t know how to overcome a difficult situation. Or why the same things seem to be happening to you. Maybe you feel very sad and like you’re carrying heavy baggage. Stress might be a bit too much and you wish you could stop the race inside you. Maybe you just want to feel better. Maybe you are not sure, but you feel that all is not ok. And maybe all the above at the same time.

I have over 19 years experience working with people - My clients come to me, when they feel overwhelmed, exhausted and in need of support - they can't manage their thoughts, relationships, behaviours alone any longer and they need someone to talk to in a confidential, non-judgmental way. Together we explore, unpick, understand and make changes, so that life can become more manageable, enjoyable and less exhausting. For me, each of my clients are individuals, and its about getting the right balance - seeing what works and what doesn't work for them, promoting change together.

Female Counsellors

Does it matter what gender my therapist is?

In general, this is not an important factor, as there is no relationship between a therapist’s gender and their efficacy. Some clients, however, prefer to see therapists of a particular gender, whether due to their own past experiences with men and women, or ingrained beliefs about how people of different genders think and behave. Exploring the roots of such preferences and considering what one wants to address in therapy can help someone determine whether their therapist’s gender truly matters to them.

Should I see a female therapist?

Many people—not just women—prefer to see a female therapist, either because they believe that a woman will be able to relate to their specific challenges (for example, sexism in the workplace) or because they imagine feeling more comfortable disclosing sensitive information to a woman. Such beliefs may not turn out to be accurate, however, and adhering too rigidly to a gender preference can at times hinder a client from finding the best therapeutic match.

Do therapists get specific training to help with women’s concerns?

Therapists are trained to provide care to clients of any gender. However, some therapists—both men and women—may pursue additional training in feminist therapy, gender-specific issues, or women’s mental health. Female clients may wish to ask prospective therapists whether they have received specific training in the client’s primary area(s) of concern, or whether they have worked extensively with women on issues similar to their own.

How can I inquire about a therapist’s experience in treating women?

It’s OK—even encouraged!—to ask a therapist directly whether and how often they have treated women in the past, or whether they have treated women dealing with the client’s most prominent concern(s). Competent therapists will be happy to share their educational background, preferred treatment modalities, and prior client experience to help an individual find the therapist best suited to their needs.
