Taking that first step to seek support from a therapist can be a daunting experience and many people can feel anxious discussing their struggles. Experiencing feelings of anxiety, depression, sadness, anger and stress or suffering from a constant low mood, can often lead to feeling bewildered and alone. So my aim is to provide a safe, warm and caring space in which together we can explore your struggles and you can gain a better understanding of yourself and your feelings, Together we can discover a way forward to a happier, calmer place, enabling you to build new beginnings.

Welcome to my profile. Reaching out for support is a courageous first step towards taking charge of your life which shows your awareness that something needs to change and deserves to be celebrated. Seeking professional support can be daunting as well as exciting as you realise that things can and will change in the future for the better. Counselling and therapy is a journey with many twists and turns as you begin to unravel and understand your patterns, unhealthy habits, limiting beliefs and what it is you can really achieve in life. I provide a safe and confidential space in which to explore these issues.

I run a female only centred practise supporting women as they grow to understand their value. I hold a deep belief in the potential and power of women who understand their worth. I fully believe that wonderful things happen when women step into their healing journey and start to understand who they are and what they are about. I love working with individuals on a 1:1 basis (both in person and virtually) and with groups to nurture a space where they can explore how best to care for ourselves and each other.

How to explain what counselling is... If you're holding a cup of coffee and somebody accidentally bumps into you, you will most likely spill a drop or two, or depending on the bump impact a few spoonfuls or more. If there had been tea or something else in your cup, the result would be the same. Your emotions and feelings are like the coffee, because sometimes when life comes along and shakes you (which will happen to us all) whatever is inside your cup will spill out. Sometimes life can be easier until you get bumped.....but then you may need somebody to talk to, this is where counselling can help.

Hello, Im Teri. I offer a relaxed counselling style and definitely no judgement. Im flexible in my approach so I can work with you in a way that suits you best. I can also give you immediate tools to help with anxiety, stress and overwhelm, low mood and also teach you relaxation techniques if you need help with any of those issues. I work to educate you too, so you know why this is happening and how to look out for the signs in the future. But sometimes we just need to download with no fix. I love what I do and even the hardest issues can still be helped with compassion, sensitivity and a little bit of humour thrown in.

Whether you're are feeling stuck in life, experiencing anxiety or depression or perhaps struggling with relationship issues that can't be resolved, the good news is that these are common issues that counselling can help with. I use the three main proven approaches used within counselling - psychodynamic, person-centred (sometimes referred to as humanistic) and cognitive-behavioural as well as EMDR therapy to treat trauma. This gives you more choice and, in turn, creates the flexibility to move towards your personal goals.

You've been an attentive mother, and a devoted partner. You've taken care of everyone and everything. You did everything that you were meant to do. So why this anxiety? This sadness? How can you move forward, and what will you do now? What did she dream of, the girl that was you? It takes courage and patience to inquire into why life is the way it is, to discover what makes us stumble and how to step through it with confidence. Expert support can help us sustain the process. I will support you, gently and carefully, while you do this important work. This is your life, and it matters.

I am a qualified Clinical Psychologist. I have worked in the NHS for 10+ years, and offer private sessions to those who wish to reach out for support to create change in their life, or who need space to be listened to and understood. We all have times in our life when we struggle with our emotions, mental well-being and relationships, or feel we have lost touch with who we are and what is important to us. The world and its challenges, or perhaps difficult experiences, now or in the past, can leave us feeling low in mood, anxious or with fluctuating emotions. If you feel this way then I hope to be able to help you.

I work with people who are needing support to navigate the challenges of life. This might mean supporting you towards a greater self-understanding or finding more meaning and purpose in life. You may want to feel more confident, calmer or creative, explore your identity or find ways of processing difficult feelings or experiences. I have a conversational approach to therapy which focuses on helping you find a way forward which is meaningful to you. If you prefer a creative approach we can explore feelings and experiences through visualisations, movement, dance, art, story, connecting with nature and 'walk and talk' therapy.

Sexual Abuse Counsellors

How do therapists treat sexual abuse?

A good therapist will be nonjudgmental and possibly demonstrate active listening, repeating back what the client says to show that they have understood. These skills allow people to feel comfortable discussing their traumatic experiences openly. Some important treatment goals are to restore a sense of safety and to rebuild confidence. In addition to working one-on-one with the patient, a therapist might bring in supportive family members to assist the client.

Do you have to talk extensively about sexual abuse in therapy?

Survivors frequently find it difficult to describe what happened to them out loud. They can even still be in a state of denial if the sexual abuse occurred recently. It is important for survivors to acknowledge that what happened isn’t their fault and to challenge and reappraise any unhealthy feelings or thoughts as they arise. Art therapy and play therapy are useful non-verbal means of communication for some survivors.

How long does treatment for sexual abuse take?

Recovery from sexual abuse can be a long and difficult process. Some survivors are able to move on naturally on their own, given time, while others require the guidance of a trained therapist. Therapy needs vary and can range from a few sessions to months or even years. Healing from sexual abuse takes time, and everyone’s journey will look a little different.

Can trauma symptoms caused by sexual abuse come back after treatment?

As occurs in many cases of trauma, survivors of sexual abuse may experience PTSD-like symptoms long after the abuse has ceased or after an initial round of treatment has occurred. In such a case, there is evidence that prolonged exposure therapy is a useful treatment for survivors, and may be more efficacious than supportive counseling alone. While triggers may continue to cause distress, the idea is that, with time and repeated exposure, their power will fade, allowing survivors to move on with their lives.
