I offer a safe and non-judgemental enviroment where I help people solve the problems that they are dealing with. I want my clients to walk away from our time together with the tools to maintain the changes they have worked for and a new found or rediscovered confidence in themselves and life. My therapy is practical, straight forward and it works. Cognitive behaviour therapy was designed for anxiety related issues from panic to OCD. It is perfect for depression or anger issues. As a qualified hypnotherapist I also teach relaxation and mindfillness meditation to those who want that extra dimension to their therapy.
I am an integrative counsellor offering counselling for a wide range of issues. I have almost 2 years experience working with young people aged between 11 and 19 in a school setting. I have supported young people with anxiety of all kinds, depression, suicidal thoughts, friendship issues, self esteem and body image, bereavement, abuse, gender dysphoria and many other issues. I also counsel adults in my private practice and have worked with adults with bereavement, divorce, family issues, childhood trauma, abuse and stress. Whatever your age or issue, I am able to offer an empathetic, relaxed, non judgemental environment.
Are you struggling but have no-one to talk to or who understands? Would you like space and time to be listened to with someone you can trust? I hope to create a safe place in which you can feel accepted, not judged, free to explore whatever you are finding difficult and make sense of your thoughts and feelings. I believe that having counselling can make a huge difference to your life as it has to mine. Everyone experiences problems in their lives and we all have times when we feel unable to cope and very alone. Sometimes too many difficult things happen at once and we can’t see a way out of confusion and pain.
Are you struggling with daily life or is your life affected by an event from the past? Are you struggling with drug or alcohol use? If so do you want to explore those issues helping to build confidence, self esteem and live a better and more balanced life ?
I understand that for some people starting therapy may feel daunting. I am interested in building a strong, supportive relationship. My style is warm, genuine, non-judgemental and hopeful. I strongly believe in hope, you may come to therapy feeling ‘hopeless’, if you do, I believe my role is to carry hope, until you are ready to do so yourself. I am interested in people’s stories and finding meaning and making sense of patterns and repetitive unhelpful behaviour. I will encourage self-kindness and quietening internal harsh voices. I may challenge false beliefs about yourself.
There are many reasons why you may be seeking out a therapist to help with the issues you face in your life. You may be experiencing distressing feelings; you may be approaching important crossroads in life and you’re faced with uncertainty; you may feel like your confidence or self-esteem is low. It may also be something more difficult to put your finger on – you may have an unnameable sense that something just isn’t right with your internal world and you want to make a change. You may be wondering what it is that I can do to help, so let's start there...
Hi… I’m Victoria, a specialist Child Psychotherapeutic Counsellor working with children aged 7- 14. Growing up can be hard at the best of times, but these unprecedented times have thrown an unimaginable number of challenges at our youngsters. I offer a safe place and secure relationship in which children can reduce their overwhelm, unjumble their thoughts and explore the feelings inside. I specialize in working through play, art and creativity- all developmentally natural forms of expression of a child’s inner world.

Are you a scuba diver experiencing something that is getting in the way of your diving? Do you have mental health concerns, physical health and lifestyle issues you would like to address to be/stay fit to dive? Do you find difficulties or anxieties get in the way of getting what you want from your diving? Or have previous experiences such as drowning or other aquatic traumas created mental blocks to learning to dive? Have you been involved in a distressing/traumatic diving incident and finding it harder than you expected to get back in the water?
When it seems like there's nowhere for you to turn; when you feel like you are heading for "rock-bottom" ; you have hit crisis point, or you feel you have lost your direction, no matter what the reason, talking to a counsellor can help you to find your way through your struggle; a way that is right for you.
Feeling depressed or anxious? Need to make a change? Taking the first steps to get help can be daunting. This is why I always offer therapy in an emotionally supportive and empathetic manner to help you to achieve the changes that you are looking for. As a psychologist I work with the processes of change; though change is never easy, it’s always worthwhile. I’m fully trained in a diverse range of therapies. This means when we first meet for your assessment consultation, we can consider which approaches may be the best fit for you & therefore the most effective, ensuring you a unique and individualised treatment plan.
We all exist in relationship with others, at home and at work, and the health of these relationships affects our wellbeing. When we're going through a challenging time it can feel really difficult, and working with someone who has supported many others in similar situations is an important part of finding our own way to move forward. I can support you to take some time out of the same old experiences, to invest in yourself so you can be happier and enjoy what life has to offer. It's possible to work with me one to one, as a couple or in a family group.

Hi, I'm Lorna, a therapist working in-person and online from the North East of England. If you're looking to improve your mental health and well-being, I offer you a safe, encouraging and warm relationship. Together we’ll determine your goals for therapy and what you would like to change and have more of in your life. Working through present or past issues that may be contributing to how you’re feeling. I combine several therapeutic modalities, including embodied, somatic, body psychotherapy and tailor therapy to your needs, offering ongoing therapy or short-term sessions.
Are you stressed, depressed, anxious, sad or just not feeling yourself? Then counselling might be something that can help you, whether it is a new concern or a long held one. Sometimes emotional pain or life events can temporarily cloud your ability to see possible solutions, leaving you feeling stuck, confused, unhappy, anxious, sad or even shut down. The process of talking about this can gradually make things seem clearer as you make sense of your feelings and your thoughts become more ordered. You can feel change taking place, sometimes to your own surprise and so start to find a way forward that feels right for you.
