I work with adults and young people with various presenting difficulties such as anxiety, OCD , phobias, stress, trauma, depression, anger, loss, low self esteem, self harm, relationship problems and abuse. Counselling is a process people seek when they want changes in their life. It can help us to understand and have better clarity of our thoughts, emotions and behaviours. Let me ask you…Are you feeling stuck? Do you want to feel happier? Are you feeling overwhelmed? Are you feeling lost or hopeless? Are you battling with your inner critic? Do you want to heal from your past? If so let’s start your journey to discovering a new you.

I can help with a range of problems such as depression, sleep issues, phobia, trauma, anxiety, panic attacks and OCD .
Are you, your child or your adolescent struggling with worry, anxiety or low mood? Are you unsure how to help yourself, your child or your adolescent with their problems? Or have you experienced a traumatic event that has left you feeling stuck with life feeling very different now? Or maybe you have a phobia or sleep problem that is impacting on your life. Cognitive behavioural therapy might be for you if you want to make sense of the problem you have and why you may feel stuck. CBT is a structured talking therapy which focuses on making sense of problematic connections between our thoughts, feelings and behaviour.

Hi, I'm Tina and I work using the Person-Centred Approach offering one to one counselling, in a non-judgemental and non-directive way. I advocate this theory as I enjoy helping people realise their potential and become who they want to be! This particularly helps those who are drawn to exploring their own thoughts and feelings. Counselling is not about ‘fixing’ problems as such, it is about changing your understanding and view of the problems, enabling you to work towards living in a way that you find more satisfying.

Experiencing unwanted, anxious feelings that are getting in the way of how you live each day? Unhappy in your closest relationships and looking for more? Questioning your ability to go to work and fulfil the job you're expected to do? Anxious about how you're going to cope with all that's coming your way? Thoughts from things in the past resurface reminding you of things you'd rather forget? Questioning yourself and going over and over what to do, how things could have been different, will life ever be ok again? Life going OK then something happens? Wondering who you can talk to? Who'll have the time to listen? Who can help?

Hi my name is Sarah. I work with children and young people. My focus when working with children and young people is to find a way to work with them to help with all of their areas of difficulty, from emotional to school and the variety of difficulties they can experience. I find that children and young people feel most comfortable when they have routine, so the children will always have the same time and day each week, this helps build rapport. I specialise in inclusive therapies which means I can use a variety of techniques which will best support each child individually. From behaviour, emotion, learning, social difficulties,

I am an experienced psychotherapist with a strong track record helping patients recover within the NHS. I offer a safe, consistent setting in private practice to enable change that is not always possible within time-limited therapy. My ongoing training in psychodynamic psychotherapy means there is more bandwidth in my practice to help patients with a range of anxiety specific disorders and depression, including trauma, understand themselves more fully. I help patients understand that the world we live in often makes us internalise blame and we might avoid more healthy ways of depending on others, which can affect our relationships.

I am a Play therapist who works primarily with children aged 4 to 12. Children often show their need for help through their behaviour. They may be struggling to form friends, getting into trouble at school, falling behind in their learning etc. There are many reasons a child may benefit from therapy. These may include abuse, domestic violence, loss of a loved one (including a pet), bullying, divorce, illness. You may not even know why the child is struggling, just that they are. By the end of therapy I hope that the child will feel happier in themselves and will have developed more resiliance to be able to manage future events.

I am a trauma-informed, integrative therapist with NHS experience. Being trauma-informed means that I use a specific approach to therapy that recognizes and emphasizes understanding how the traumatic experience impacts a person’s mental well-being. This type of therapy is rooted in understanding the connection between the trauma experience and the person’s emotional and behavioural responses. Being integrative means that I can work at your pace with a wide variety of skills tailored to suit you. I am aware that therapy is not a “one size fits all” and I pride myself in working with you to reconnect you with your values in life

Are you experiencing relationship problems, inner conflicts or life stresses? It can help to find someone who is empathic and skilled who offers a safe space in which to share these feelings and dilemmas. Sometimes the issues may have been a pressure in life for months or years, and become part of your personality. It is a relief to discover that there is a solution to be found in therapy. I am especially interested in helping clients who have experienced troubled, sometimes abusive, childhoods and early loss of significant attachment figures. Often later life experience brings back earlier trauma and distress.

Cognitive behaviour therapy and EMDR are recommended in the NICE guidelines as the first line therapy modality for depression, anxiety ( OCD , PTSD, BDD, panic and phobias).
Are you struggling with fear, intrusive distressing thoughts, avoidance and generally not living the life that you want? Or are you low, hopeless, self critical and isolating yourself? I can help with these and other mental health difficulties through challenging your thoughts and making some changes to your current behaviours. CBT can also help with improving self-esteem and with overcoming phobias and past trauma. EMDR therapy is a powerful intervention for PTSD and trauma, new studies have also shown its effectiveness with anxiety disorders &grief

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.
