I am an accredited and registered play therapist (PTUK). I take referrals from schools, parents and other agencies. Play therapy is a form of child psychotherapy which can help children to process intense emotions. It can provide a safe and protected space where children can play out traumatic memories or intense feelings. Play therapy can enable children to heal from early trauma and provide them with an opportunity to build the resilience needed to function in school, their family and their community. It involves the use of the play therapy toolkit which includes; puppets, sand play, art materials, role play, stories and music.

Art therapy enabled me to process my own past traumas, it has given me the empathy and determination to help others to see more clearly what is going on for them in the present, often through gaining a better understanding of their past. I work mostly with adolescents (aged 12-25) and adults. Helping them to process issues such as anxiety, bullying, stress, identity, grief and bereavement.

The hardest thing is to take that first step and figure out what’s happening in your life, to trust someone with what you’re going to tell them, your most private thoughts or feelings or what’s happened to you. Yet, you deserve to live a life that leaves you excited to wake up every morning, free of emotional pain and distress. Your story is not trivial, and I’m ready to listen and help you to find the answers you need and support you with the appropriate coping mechanisms.

I am an Integrative Counsellor, this means that I can alter my way of working to better suit my client's personal needs. Working this way means that I can bring different skills and theories into session that I feel my client may benefit from rather sticking to just one counselling theory. I believe that a counselling journey needs to as unique as the person embarking on it. The aim of my counselling service is to help people work towards a brighter future, one step at a time. When working on your mental health, people think of this long scary process, what I aim to do is break this journey down into steps, keeping you in control.

Nice to meet you! I'm Cass. An integrative therapist based in South Yorkshire currently offering online, telephone and face to face sessions. Here to collaborate and help people with any support they may be looking for. My approach with therapy is the ideology of taking the clinical, cold side out of the equation and creating something that people can really feel free to be themselves in. I understand that it can be hard to take the first step, and even harder to do the work. I can help support you with that journey, in a judgement free and safe space to heal and grow.

My role, as a psychodynamic therapist, is to provide an environment that is confidential and safe. This is why I do what I do. I provide an outside perspective to help you understand how your past influences present behaviours; your use of defences to avoid reality and awareness of how unconscious reoccurrence operates in your life. With your assistance my aim is to develop different strategies in making better choices to existing problems and explore beliefs of past feelings, memories. This doesn’t mean all your life is broken, but certain grey areas compromising the relationships you’re having with self and others.

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 Barnsley?
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 Barnsley 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.
