Hi, I am Amey, a Qualified Person Centred Therapist registered with the BACP. I offer counselling to people for a range of reasons including loss, depression, anxiety, low self esteem or those in need of a space to understand themselves and their experiences. For the past 8 years I have mainly worked with people affected by domestic abuse. Both those experiencing abuse and those being abusive. If your life has been touched by abuse and you would like to access a therapeutic space to explore the impacts of the abuse and what you may need to move forwards I would be happy to hear from you.

Sometimes life just feels too difficult, and you feel that you can't go on any longer trying to cope with what is troubling you alone. Perhaps you are suffering from anxiety, depression, abuse, grief or trauma. Perhaps you are very stressed at work or have lost someone dear to you or your relationship is in trouble. Maybe you need to make an important decision but just cannot do it. Whatever the issue, I can help. I will treat you with sympathy and respect and offer you a safe and confidential space to discuss with me what is troubling you. I offer individual counselling or Couple Counselling in person or skype.

Hi I’m Jeff. So tell me are you feeling overwhelmed with anxiety, anger or depression? I specialise in helping you move past these issues. I know life has been hard lately. and I am here for you. I know you want to move on with your life but something always seems to hold you back. Sometimes it is overwhelming to the extent that you know you need more than a chat with friends or a good night out. This goes deeper, and it is hampering you more than you would like to admit. You want some freedom from all this negative emotional baggage you seem to be carrying - it is time to let it all go... but how? It is time to get in touch…

I'm a Psychodynamic and Body Oriented Psychotherapist with over 20 years experience. Compassion, kindness, mindfulness, contact, depth, and humour are key to the way I work. I welcome clients with a wide variety of issues, from deep trauma and anxiety to relationship or work related difficulties. Sometimes words are not enough to reach the place that wants to be reached. I integrate Internal Family System (IFS), Talking therapy and Body centered work to suit individual needs. Even if we 'only' talk, I encourage mindfulness of breath and body. I trust deeply in the self healing energy we all harbour within.

Throughout our lives we may encounter challenging experiences. We may feel lost and lack the guidance and clarity to assist in making difficult choices. We may struggle to deal with the affliction of loss or bereavement. We may find it difficult to understand the sensations and emotions attached to trauma and relational conflicts. We may be unsure of our identity and how we fit within the world.

My ideal client is someone who is ready for therapy - in other words they can tell that something's not right, they may even know what, and are ready to take steps to talk things through, and work together with a counsellor to see if we can get to the bottom of things.

Life can be joyful but it can also be incredibly stressful and challenging. I don’t believe any of us can navigate life without experiencing difficult and painful life events. As with our physical health, maintaining our mental health and wellbeing is a lifelong commitment. Given the right set of circumstances any of us could experience mental health difficulties. We can experience traumas and adverse life events which can significantly impact our mental health and lives. There are so many factors that can influence how we are thinking, feeling and behaving, causing us to feel unwell and overwhelmed & in need of help and support.

Congratulations on taking the first step to finding a counsellor. It is hard to admit that you are struggling and you are probably doubtful that anyone could help. You may be feeling isolated and lonely or anxious and depressed. You may have lost someone close to your heart or have been struggling for years with a recurring problem. You may be seeking help for a child or young person that is struggling. You have already decided to make a difference in your life. I would be happy to join you on your journey

I am an experienced warm and compassionate Practitioner and believe that the quality of the relationship between Therapist and Client is fundamental. I offer a safe and confidential space, where together, we can explore areas which matter to you, so you can make appropriate changes, feel in control of your life and develop through in-depth sessions.

At any age we can find ourselves out of our depths and in need of various degrees of support, by building a trusting and open therapeutic relationship we can explore together your problems in a safe, warm, and non-judgemental space. Counselling can support you through difficult periods in your life and help in gaining a deeper understanding of yourself. I truly believe in the power of person centred counselling and I am honoured to work with children, young people and adults in difficult and stressful times.

I have 27 yrs post-qualification organisational & private practice experience. I trained and worked in New York & London. As well as private practice, I have managed mental health and substance abuse services. I offer individual psychotherapy, family/couple counselling, & clinical supervision. I work to identify, activate and strengthen people's own internal resources. I combine exploring the origins of behaviours that have become self-defeating, with focusing on current coping strategies, support systems, and improving life in the present moment. Body/mind/emotions/spirit are interconnected, and attention needs to be paid to each.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
Some of the most common types of mental health providers in Cornwall are psychologists, licensed counsellors, therapists, and psychotherapists, all of whom diagnose mental health conditions and provide individualised treatment.

Services offered, education, and credentials vary by type of mental health professional. Each professional in Cornwall then may specialise in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counselling, or anxiety. Although many mental health providers are not licensed to prescribe medication, they may coordinate with a provider who can.

Both in-person and online therapy sessions are available from most psychologists.
How to find a specialist?
You can refine your search using the filters on this page. There are several categories you can filter by to find mental health professionals with the experience you are looking for. You may want to filter for CBT Psychologists in Cornwall, or Child Psychologists in Cornwall.

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like Cornwall psychologists specialising in EMDR.


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 Cornwall 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.
