People often come to therapy unsure of what their goals are, knowing that things aren’t right and that life could be better if only those things were different. Whether you’re looking for therapy as an individual or as a couple - I work with both - I believe we all have the potential to change and grow, and that sometimes what is needed to start the process is a different perspective from someone with a fresh pair of eyes and ears.

I am a BABCP registered Psychotherapist. It is my goal to facilitate and communicate with my clients as best as they can to uncover the essence of concerning issues and those that may arise. These issues can be challenging and overwhelming. My experience has shown that using a non-judgmental, open and honest approach enables clients to understand themselves and their lives better after understanding how to communicate. This skill begins on day one of therapy and can be applied to various life situations. I am honored to hear clients speak about what matters to them most, and to help them reach their full potential.

Hi, I'm Catherine and I am a BACP registered Person Centred counsellor. At times we can feel overwhelmed by life - past experiences, difficulties in the present and fears about the future. Counselling can be very helpful during these difficult times. It can enable us change the way we think about feel about things. It can help us explore our thoughts surrounding a particular issue, even when that might be challenging, and increase our self-confidence and self-esteem as we gain a deeper understanding of ourselves. By talking through things we all have the power to change our thinking and thrive as a result.

I embrace and believe as a Humanistic counsellor that all people have inherent worth and deserve respect and sensitivity. I hold faith that over time, we all have an innate tendency to move forward realizing our potential for growth, understanding and acceptance. I believe that we are all organically creative and highly individual and we all have the right to experience emotional challenges in our own way and in our own time-eventually resulting in psychological wellness and/or acceptance and my hope - inner peace.

My name is Marie Watkins. I am a counselling psychotherapist with 20 years of experience working in a variety of settings. I work with individuals offering short term, solution focused and longer term open ended therapy. In my own life I have experienced life events and challenges that have left me feeling overwhelmed, confused, lost and defeated. To have a sense of the way forward has felt, at these times, almost impossible. Modern day life can leave us all struggling to balance work, family and relationships resulting in us experiencing feelings of failure, self doubt and lack of confidence.

Starting therapy is an important step. It is an opportunity to tackle your immediate concerns but also to understand them in the context of your life in general. It provides a space to creatively shape your life but also take your pain and struggle seriously. Therapy provides an opportunity to strengthen a sense of your own identity and worth and to experiment with how to take that into your relationships, career and life in general.

Hi I'm Pauline, thank you for reaching out as I understand that this can be difficult. Are you tired of feeling tired? Stressed or anxious? Struggling to concentrate, to sleep? Maybe you are worried about how you will cope? Angry or tearful? Do you feel anxious and don't know what the next step is? Have you lost your confidence, or identity? Do you fear you are going 'mad'? Being able to talk to someone outside your circle of family and friends can help. I won't tell you what to do but I will walk alongside you to help you understand how your experiences have impacted you.

Welcome to Heartlands. If you are tired of coping and would like to achieve a feeling of joy Heartlands provides a safe space to explore and unravel what may be blocking this in your life. Anxiety and depression can be symptoms of old trauma that we store somatically. Insomnia and obsession can be a way of coping with difficult feelings. Learning to gain a sense of self can be a very important first step on a healing journey. I am interested in whole hearted wellness- begin to learn how to take care of yourself undoing attachment issues and relational problems. Address low energy and self esteem.

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.
