Welcome. I'm Zoe Purse. I provide counselling to individuals and young people in the lovely Rossendale Valley, Lancashire. I work from home in a purpose built log cabin in rural surroundings yet right in the heart of town. There is easy access to local transport and motorway links. I have also supported people with life limiting illness or with bereavement and loss counselling at a hospice in Manchester. I am passionate about helping people who are going through difficult, emotional turmoil and understand that everyone is unique. I offer support with understanding and empathy along side being non-judgmental, caring and genuine.
Hello, I’m Scott. I am one of the Counsellors and Supervisors who form Triad Therapy in Burnley, Lancashire. Often, life is stressful, difficult, confusing and complicated. We carry the weights of our past and the fears of the future. We can be expected to be so much to many people, and at times, this can feel very overwhelming. In addition, life can sometimes be lonely, isolating and emotional. I think it’s important to have someone on your side, someone to listen intently, be patient, and attempt to understand what’s happening for you...
I mainly offer treatment to veterans of the UK Armed Forces and Uniformed Personnel such as the Police, Ambulance and the Fire Service and non-operational reservists. However, I do also see members of the public. Veterans will typically present with complex trauma-related or stress-related mental health issues resulting from service, such as PTSD Complex-PTSD (this is PTSD plus some specific other difficulties), Anxiety and Depression
Hi, I’m Aisha! Before I tell you a bit about me, I would just like to acknowledge the important step you have taken to find a counsellor. I’m aware it can be an anxious and daunting experience, that’s why it’s important to find the right counsellor for you. You may be going through a difficult time in your relationship, work life or struggling to explore your emotions; it’s important to explore what is going on for you. In order for us to grow, it’s important for us to express our emotions. And to feel validated for our emotions. Whether that’s to cry, laugh, scream or just sit in silence.

Do you feel like you're going round and round with a problem - maybe with a relationship or how you see yourself? Maybe you don't know how you want things to be, or you know what you want but can't work out how to do it, or don't have the courage to follow through? Are you constantly thinking about a particular person and wishing the situation, or one of you, could be different? Are you worried friends/family are tired of hearing about your problems? Are you feeling anxious, angry, rejected, or unimportant? Whatever your issues, I can help you talk about and process them, find solutions, and feel more at ease with yourself.
We are all unique to one another, yet one thing is undoubtedly the same about us all, we all deserve to be listened too, empathised with & allowed to speak openly with no judgement.

To create a safe & calming space to which you feel comfortable enough to talk about any troubles/issues which you may be facing right now in the present moment, situations and traumas from your past, or overwhelming worries about your future.

As a clinical psychologist I work with children, adolescents, adults and families to address a variety of psychological difficulties. With over 25 years experience, I am skilled in a variety of psychological interventions, drawing on different approaches as appropriate. I work with adults experiencing a variety of difficulties from depression and anxiety to loss and relationship issues. I am particularly interested in working with children and adolescents: whether working with anxiety, self harm, poor self esteem or family conflict, I aim to help parents and children feel supported, and to foster loving family relationships.
I specialise in the treatment of addiction which I have written/ developed and delivered many successful treatment programmes over the past 18 years that are used in the community, prisons, and rehabs and one to one settings. Living in addiction can be a lonely and desolate place where people, including family and friends can lose hope and fear the worse. In my work I have the pleasure of seeing people enter into recovery and have a life worth living. Through cutting edge therapy and techniques people are able to take back control in their lives and achieve personal goals
I am a professional qualified counsellor and I have a lovely little private practice where we can connect. I offer counselling in a friendly yet professional environment working with individuals who may just want to feel better or have a specific goal in mind. I appreciate it that it takes courage to make the first step and reach out for support, find someone you can trust and connect with. I invite you to get in touch for a no obligation 30 minute chat to see how we could work together. I am open to questions and I will do all I can to put you at ease.
Are you feeling like you are: 'out of sorts', 'depressed', 'sad', 'anxious', 'lonely', 'worried', 'stressed', 'fearful' or any other description that just doesn't feel like the real you? Do you need someone to 'hear and understand' you, to help you make sense of it all. Maybe you've tried family members, loved ones and friends and now feel that you are burdening them, getting nowhere and not really able to truly open up to them for fear of being judged, shamed or shocking them.
We all struggle at some point in our lives. It might be because of a significant event such as a bereavement, divorce, relationship breakdown, or losing your job. Or maybe you’ve been feeling worried or down and it’s affecting your day-to-day life and you’re looking for a counselling service to help. Sometimes, we don’t even know what the reasons are but do we know that we are not feeling quite right. Whatever your reason, finding a counselling service that suits you is a positive first step towards feeling better, and you can feel better.
