I help adults struggling with a broad range of psychological health challenges including; anxiety, panic attacks, depression, overwhelming feelings, phobias, OCD , low self-worth and confidence, to name but a few .
I am a qualified CBT therapist. My approach is both adaptive and solution orientated and works best for people who want to change how they are feeling, thinking and behaving. I can help you manage distressing emotions by changing your unhealthy thought patterns and replacing any unhelpful, destructive and self-sabotaging behaviours you may have developed with healthy, helpful practices. My approach is to help you develop a deeper understanding of who you are and why you do the things you do. I will help you develop a sense of self-respect and recognise you are stronger than you think.

I see clients with a range of difficulties across the lifespan who find themselves in psychological distress and are looking for an understanding and solution to their difficulties. These difficulties may have been lifelong or more recently acquired. They may be showing clinical symptoms such as depression, anxiety, post traumatic stress, or OCD as a result. They may want longer term therapy to work on themselves more deeply or they may want short term therapy that is focussed on resolving more specific issues.

Mindfulness to help settle your mind, including OCD and childhood difficulties.
Great, you have already taken the first steps for you. I am not the expert on you, you are. I am here to support and explore with you what you maybe finding difficult or just not feeling Ok. This may be in your relationships, in your physical body or you are finding both these things are overwhelming sometimes. Together we can wonder, ponder and educate ourselves and understand, why? Then we can make a strategy and build on your already available resilience (you are here remember), and improve this together. This maybe just a few sessions, sometimes just one or a little longer if you need this.

I truly believe that everyone deserves sound mental health, but sometimes life can provide so many challenges that you may end up feeling out of control, anxious or miserable, unsure which way to turn. You are welcome to talk through your experiences and feelings and be listened to in a non-judgemental, open, and empathetic manner. We will work together to develop an understanding of all you have been through and work on processing these experiences within yourself. I offer therapies for anxiety, depression, OCD , PTSD, self-esteem or confidence problems, etc. in English and Hungarian.

I don't have a typical client. Everyone is unique and complex and if you have found yourself drawn to the idea of counselling I will do my best to build a trusting relationship, offering a safe, non judgemental space and ring-fenced time just for you to talk about the issues you want to bring. I work with adults both short and long term to strive to help you reach the goal you had in mind from it. I have found these reasons can be very diverse, from dealing with past or present events, fears, traumas, anxieties, grief. My aim is to help you get a deeper understanding of yourself and help you bring about the changes you want to see.

Too many people still think they need to "suffer in silence". There's a strongly-held belief, especially among men, that it's not OK to talk about emotions, about problems in relationships, or about those moments when we feel overwhelmed. I've worked with many clients who come to counselling as a last resort, not really believing it can help them. But thousands of people out there have found that talking does make a difference. If you've been wondering whether it could make a difference for you, contact me for an introductory appointment, to see whether counselling is right for you.

Our mind can be tricky and understand how it functions is not a simple thing. We can easily feel overwhelmed or drowning under negative thoughts, feeling stuck in this vicious circle. The core of my work is to do a person-focus therapy, adapting each of them to the needs of my clients, it is called "integrative therapy". Being trained in several types of approaches, I can jungle easily with the tools, to be able to create a tailored therapy : talking therapy, psychoanalysis, CBT, ACT, hypnosis, NLP coaching. My work is based on empathy, compassion and support. We talk openly and safely together about what is the best for your needs

Coming to counselling is an adventure! It can be immense fun and incredibly inspirational. It can also be hard and will certainly make you take a good look at yourself! If you want to make changes in your life then counselling is one of the most effective ways to do it... and I will help you along the way, walking alongside you, giving you support. It is a great privilege for me - and I deeply value the vulnerable person (within all of us) that counselling helps to find the courage to reveal. I work with kindness, warmth and respect, and our relationship will become strong - yet I will challenge you - but in a caring and gentle way.

Counselling and self-reflection is the opposite of selfishness. It is a tool that helps us to be able to take responsibility for our own feelings and allow us to have better control over the direction of our lives. So that we can be better functioning and content for ourselves and those around us.

I hold a BA(Hons) in integrative relational counselling and a registered member of BACP. I have a number of years of experience working in the charity and private sector, supporting clients with a wide range of emotional issues. ​ At the heart of my counselling practice is the aim to provide a space where you can come to breathe, to be, and find unconditional acceptance, positive reflection and discover alternative narratives and perspectives for yourself. A relationship that enables that to occur, allows for the development of self-awareness, self- acceptance, hope and healing.

At various points in our lives we may find ourselves needing a little extra support. Sometimes the only way to get a handle on a problem is to share it with a complete stranger in the knowledge that you will not be judged, but supported toward reaching your goals. Whether those goals are to understand yourself better, increase your confidence or self-esteem, move on after divorce or bereavement or to begin to move past traumas and understand what is holding you back in your current life. I am here to help you explore what is happening for you right now.

If your everyday life and general wellbeing are being affected by how you’re feeling, it is a good time to get some help. My name is Selina Pryor and I work as a school counsellor with young people and adults three days a week. In my private practice I offer individual counselling for young people and adults. Counselling can offer the space and time needed to work through experiences and issues, it is an opportunity to be heard and to feel understood. It can help in building better self-awareness, relationships and overall quality of life. Choosing a counsellor that feels like the right person is really important.

You come to me because you want a very clear understanding and analysis of what you are experiencing and how to treat the issues. You want to be treated fairly, without judgement; directly, and with intelligence by someone with considerable life skills & experience. You would like to be able to quickly and easily form a strong relationship with your therapist that provides safety, confidentiality, trust and most of all a sense of hope. You want your therapist to be very well informed academically, with considerable skill and experience in being able to explain theory and how it applies to you. Couples and families welcome.

Obsessive-Compulsive (OCD) Counsellors
Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is an anxiety disorder in which people have unwanted and repeated thoughts, feelings, ideas, sensations (obsessions), or behaviours that make them feel driven to do something (compulsions). It affects children, kids, teens and adults. Often the person carries out the behaviours to get rid of the obsessive thoughts, but this only provides temporary relief. Not performing the obsessive rituals can cause great anxiety. A person's level of OCD can be anywhere from mild to severe, but if severe and left untreated, it can destroy a person's capacity to function at work, at school or even to lead a comfortable existence in the home.
