Hi my name is Lizzie, How are you feeling? unhappy, anxious, stressed, angry or depressed, or is there something specific you feel you would like to talk about. Life can be difficult and overwhelming, we sometimes struggle to make sense of our feelings and what is going on for us. We can get stuck and not know how to make life more comfortable. Although that first step can be nerve wracking and sometimes difficult, Counselling can be that first step to making that positive change. This is your time for you, to be listened to and understood and have the the world seen from your perspective, at a pace that is comfortable for you.

Hello, I’m Zoe. I am a play and creative arts therapist based in Peterborough and I see children from 3 to 16. Do you know a child with big emotions? Are these emotions hard to manage? Play therapy can help children process their emotions and make sense of their worlds. I also offer parenting support. I know how hard parenting can be and I’m passionate about offering a holistic service. I am an advocate of therapeutic parenting, playful parenting and attachment play. I like to work with parents to help support the therapeutic process and provide ways to foster co-operation, connection and play.

Hi, would you like to address something that is troubling you? You may have a clear idea of what help you want or it may be that you know something isn't right but are unsure what it is and that's okay. Maybe you want to feel better about yourself, reach your potential and feel happier in your relationships? Are you feeling criticised by others? Perhaps you feel invisible, alone and not valued? Maybe you feel dissatisfied with your life, constantly in search of happiness whilst watching others enjoy their lives. Is this affecting your relationships? Are you stuck in this cycle? I know how hard it can be to ask for help.

There are reasons for our difficulties: e.g. anxiety, despair, addiction, isolation, life transitions, anger, grief, trauma, worthlessness, domination, etc,. The counselling process enables us to meet, understand and repair these. It helps us then to reclaim our true self, perhaps for the first time in a long time or ever. Working in this way with a counsellor allows you to heal in ways that are life enhancing and endure. Whatever causes you fear, harm and/or damage historically and/or now, can actually be harvested to transform your life.

Hello. I am a BABCP Accredited Cognitive Behavioural and EMDR Therapist. CBT enables us to understand the relationships between our feelings, thoughts, behaviours and environment, and the ways in which these can become problematic. With an understanding of how mental health difficulties develop and are maintained day to day I use an evidence-based (NICE guidelines) and goal-orientated approach to help support change. The emphasis is on finding solutions that work for the individual, so that you can improve emotional health & become your own therapist by applying new skills and techniques to old patterns of thinking and behaving.

It can lonely and difficult when talking to family or friends is not always enough. Are you struggling with anxiety, stress or life in general and not sure where to turn next? Is a relationship problem causing upset or does low self esteem hold you back? Have you survived sexual abuse/assault and need space to talk so shame, fear and guilt don't control you. Are you struggling to cope after a loss or a bereavement and need to be heard. Being able to talk confidentially about your issues can help gain back a sense of control and to move forward. I also offer support for clients on the asexual spectrum and adults with ADHD.

I am a Child, adolescent & adult psychotherapist. I work with all age groups. We are all expected to make normal life changes that can be difficult for example, a school transition, change of job, relationship changes etc.  These can be quite challenging to manage. Then we have the uncertainties that are happening all around us right now with the pandemic & global change. Life is full of many uncertainties & quite often this can cause us to feel as though we are out of control leading to anxiety & stress.  I can help to manage the anxiety so that you feel back in control again enabling a much happier & fulfilled life.

As a specialist child and adolescent psychotherapist with a background in teaching and family support, I have a breadth of experience working with children and adolescents and their families.
You may have a child struggling with being at school, or perhaps you find yourself constantly at loggerheads with them. Perhaps they can't sleep, or don't want to get up in the morning, they might feel lonely, or misunderstood, criticised, or attacked . You may have tried every strategy you can find, to persuade your child to eat, or listen, or simply follow instructions. We all believe that childhood should be a time of simple happiness, but in fact this is a time of enormous developmental challenge, and many things can make it hard for children and adolescents to tread the path towards a resilient, positive, independent adulthood.

I have 10 years of experience working with child, adolescent and adult counselling.
Stress, anxiety, depression, trauma, self-esteem concerns, and life transitions are all part of the journey that we go on and are very challenging to face. A safe, non-judgemental, and confidential space is essential for you to explore, discuss and discover yourself, this is what I offer. I believe that therapy is not about me telling you what to do, it is about nurturing your growth to help you discover solutions. My goal is to help you create a positive change in your life through therapy. Through our sessions together, we will develop a set of skills to address challenges and concerns that will help you live in the present moment

Teen Counsellors

What does therapy for teenagers look like?

When a therapist works with a teenager, the pair will talk about what the teen is struggling with and explore solutions, which may involve interpersonal skills, coping strategies, medication, or lifestyle changes related to sleep, diet, and exercise. Different therapists employ different modalities, but most involve a combination of conversation and skill building.

How long does therapy for teenagers generally take to work?

There’s variability in teenagers’ experiences and challenges; some may begin to improve from therapy within a few weeks while others may take several months or longer. Teens can discuss their progress with their therapist periodically to assess how they’re improving and any changes to the treatment plan that could potentially accelerate that progress.

How do you encourage a teenager to go to therapy?

It’s helpful to express your concern and love while framing therapy as an opportunity to explore a tool that could help improve their life; just like they practice baseball or dance, now they can practice their emotional skills. Give your teen control over the process where you can—maybe by weighing in on choice of therapist and signaling that therapy involves confidentiality, so a parent need not know all that is discussed in sessions.

How do you prepare teens for therapy?

You can prepare your teenager for therapy by describing what the process will look like and setting expectations for timeline, if requested. You can explain that the first session may begin with an assessment phase, that they can describe their experiences but that the therapist will ask questions too, and that it may take time to feel comfortable opening up. Ask how they’re feeling about the process and answer any questions calmly and supportively.
