I work with whoever comes to me but also have special interest in the following groups: Women who may have a nagging feeling that life could be more beautiful. They may feel trapped by past choices or have experienced a wake-up call or final straw such as a bereavement, relationship difficulties, or peri-menopause or menopause difficulties. Teenagers who feel overwhelmed with life. They may find it hard to put their feelings into words or to talk to friends and family. Perhaps they feel tension between what they want and the expectation of others. Trainee counsellors who may be looking forward to therapy, or perhaps the training is

I can help you manage current life challenges like: sudden changes or losses brought about by coronavirus; anxiety; relationship issues; bereavement; loneliness and parenthood. I can also help if you struggle with past experiences intruding on your present or want to know yourself better. Online therapy offers vital connection, support and opportunity to work things through with an empathic, trained professional totally unconnected to your life. I'll resume also offering face to face therapy when possible. Whether we meet in person or remoteIy, I offer a safe, non-judgmental space to share your load, rather than carrying it alone.

Hello my name is Shelley and I am a qualified adult and child Therapeutic Counsellor. I have a vast amount of experience as a pastoral worker working in schools and as a counsellor working for a charity. I am a member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and offer face to face or online sessions . These sessions provide a confidential, supportive environment where clients can feel safe and explore the work through any emotional or life difficulties. I believe by offering online counselling this gives each individual the ability to reach their true potential within the safety of their chosen space.

Starting therapy takes courage and it may feel daunting given that talking openly about your distress may evoke feelings of vulnerability. The therapeutic relationship is often the vehicle for positive change so finding the right ‘fit’ is important. Therefore, please contact me for a free telephone/video consultation to find out more. As a Clinical Psychologist my job is to listen with compassion to your life story and help you make sense of any troubles or trauma that you are facing within your life, whether that be in your present or reoccurring from your past.

As a clinical psychologist, I consider myself to be something of an 'emotional detective!' I work with individuals and families at their own pace to explore and develop a shared understanding of how their experiences (past and present), perspectives, and environmental factors may be contributing to a particular difficulty such as anxiety or depression, before identifying and sharing new solutions to help overcome the problem. Sometimes, the process of talking openly can in itself be transformative as new meanings and stories emerge; other times specific skills and strategies might be used to create positive change and difference.

I wonder what it feels like to find yourself here, looking for some kind of support? Maybe you are struggling to 'make sense' of what you've been experiencing in your life recently? Many of my clients inhabit a crowded yet empty world, in which they cannot easily 'hear' themselves, or feel that they are not 'understood' by those around them. Perhaps you feel a little like this too? My first hope as a counsellor is that working collaboratively you will feel both heard and understood - maybe for the first time. When this happens, we begin to develop the inner resources needed to discover and engage with who we truly are.

Perhaps you've not been to therapy before and are hesitant about what to expect. Perhaps you are wondering where to even begin in what you want to talk about. Maybe you are here to understand yourself and others better, or you want to make sense of a challenging life experience to feel more connected, happier and fulfilled in life! The best place to start may involve thinking more about me than about you! Much has been said about the therapeutic relationship being an important predictor of change, so this is a great opportunity to get to know me to establish if I'm a good-fit for you!

Hi, I am Max ( Qualified Person Centred Therapist) and I know from my own experience, that life can sometimes be a struggle. Events and experiences can leave us feeling lost, isolated or directionless . At such times, reaching out for help can feel very difficult and it is important that your search leads you to someone you feel you can trust . Counselling is an opportunity to explore thoughts and feelings ,which might be affecting many different areas of your life. With careful and empathic listening, I endeavour to support you in finding your own way through what is often too complex and difficult to manage alone.
