Working from a shepherds hut, in a peaceful, rural location, I offer both short term and long term counselling. People come to counselling for many reasons, allowing yourself some time and space to talk can help you understand the causes of your unhappiness, distress, anxiety or feelings of disconnection. Being able to link feelings to your patterns of behaviour or ways of relating with others, can help you make sense of certain aspects of your life. Counselling can empower you by helping you make sense of what is happening, deal with painful thoughts, and enable you to make the changes you need to move forward.

Sometimes in life we can be surrounded by people yet feel so alone. When speaking with friends and family you may feel they are not really listening, not realizing they maybe advising, or even competing with your problems. Stress, depression and low self esteem can often make you feel invisible but these feelings are not permanent. Living with shame, anger, fear or sadness can leave you in a dark fog, struggling to find your way through. With help and support your journey may become clearer. I would like to offer you space to talk without feeling judged, pressured or nagged, to experience feeling supported, valued and important.

Hello, my name is Maria and I'm an experienced, professional BACP counsellor. I recognise you've taken a bold step to reach out for help and it can be daunting to find a therapist who you can trust and connect with. Being sensitive, curious, non judgemental, along with a sense of humour enables my clients to feel safe, to be open and vulnerable with themselves and others. Perhaps your experiencing difficulties with life, relationships or work and cope by keeping busy, numbing yourself or avoiding your thoughts and feelings. These strategies may leave you feeling anxious, stressed, lonely or depressed if not dealt with.

Hello I’m Jeni. As an experienced Dramatherapist I have found that when things are too hard to talk about initially, creativity can help us to express and process and then release what no longer serves us. My private practice allows me to work online with adults, and young people, and in a Primary school with a specialist speech and language unit. I have also worked in numerous Secondary schools. I have experience in working with anxiety, low self esteem, pre and post bereavement, fostering and adoption (life story work) neurodiversity and survivors of sexual assault

Hello and welcome to my personal page. I understand that, at times, life can be tough. We can all feel overwhelmed, anxious or depressed. Life events or circumstances may have caused you to feel lost, sad, frightened, angry or panicky. You may be having negative thoughts. Are you experiencing work-related stress, medical/health issues or having difficulty with communication or relationships? Do you think you may have dyslexia, dyspraxia, ADHD or possibly autism/Asperger's? Everyone's story and reason for seeking therapy is different and it can take courage to ask for help.

We can all find life hard at times. It can throw up difficulties that feel overwhelming and out of our control. I support adults and teenagers through a range of issues including anxiety, depression, bereavement, relationship issues and Asperger Syndrome. When we experience distress, sadness, loneliness, anxiety or depressed mood, it can feel difficult to bear and leave us feeling powerless. Working alongside a therapist means you need not face these difficulties alone.

Most people at some point in their lives will struggle with painful feelings or may feel overwhelmed by past or present experiences. These can make us feel lost, anxious, confused, helpless, distressed or angry, sometimes without us knowing why. Counselling is also not just for supporting people through a crisis. Many people come to counselling to explore and get a better understanding of themselves and their lives. Whatever you are experiencing, it can be difficult to explain how we feel to the people who are closest to us. Sometimes it is easier to talk to someone who is separate from your everyday life.

Life is a safar. A journey. The road is often rough, strewn with obstacles, full of twists. Are you feeling the need for change, to be more in control? Are you stuck, blocked in a spiralling cycle of anxiety that feels impenetrable? Do you feel alone with endless negative thoughts that go round in your head? I strongly believe that once you understand why you act and think the way you do, then you can silence your inner critic and make the changes you desire. Nelson Mandela famously said 'it always seems impossible till its done'. Second to life itself, the most important journey we will ever make is the journey within ourselves.

‘Nobody has the power to take two steps together. You can take only take one step at a time’ -Ohso. It takes courage to face the discomfort and uncertainty we are left with from our past. I believe we all hold the ability to heal form life’s experiences. By working with both the mind and body together, we increase awareness of what we are holding onto from our past that may leave us feeling distressed, isolated or stuck. Therapy can help identify and release emotional blocks or unhelpful patterns, so you can move forward in a new direction towards positive change. Sessions can be ongoing, short term, or a single session as required.

Undertaking psychotherapy can be a daunting task, especially nowadays when there is so many different types of therapy available. It can be overwhelming. In my approach, I believe that each individual situation is unique and through my experience of working with teenagers and their families as well as adults in individual and group modalities and couples, I learned to develop a sensitive ear to my client’s needs. As humans we all struggle at times either due to some external or internal pressures or the combination of both. However, I believe that facing difficulties with compassion and open mind, can be liberating.

Education and Learning Disabilities Counsellors

How effective is treatment for learning disabilities?

When initiated early and tailored to a child’s specific needs, learning disability treatment can be quite effective at helping a child cope with their disability, though its exact efficacy may depend on the severity of symptoms and whether comorbid disorders exist. Less is known about treatment initiated in adulthood, but it is certainly possible that an adult with a learning disability will see some improvement—or at the very least, identify workarounds and accommodations that could make symptoms less burdensome in day-to-day life.

When should someone seek treatment for learning disabilities?

It’s best to seek treatment as early as possible. Because learning disabilities often go unnoticed until a child starts school, or even until they’re a few years along, regular check-ins with teachers and doctors can help parents determine whether children are meeting milestones and keeping up with peers or whether an evaluation for learning disabilities may be warranted. And although earlier is always better, it’s never too late to be evaluated for learning disabilities and to seek treatment.

What happens if learning disabilities are left untreated?

Undiagnosed and untreated learning disabilities can be a source of significant frustration and shame for a child, who may feel that their challenges stem from a lack of intelligence or willpower. Such feelings can trigger low self-esteem, depression, or anxiety, which may push a child toward risky behaviors, including substance use. In adulthood, untreated learning disabilities can interfere with career success, and lingering feelings of self-doubt and shame can negatively affect someone’s mental health.

Are there medications for learning disabilities?

Currently, there are no medications designed to treat specific learning disabilities such as dysgraphia or dyscalculia. However, someone with a learning disability may be prescribed medication for a comorbid condition, such as anxiety, depression, or ADHD, which may have positive downstream effects on their learning disability; for example, a child with both ADHD and dyslexia may find that they’re better able to focus on their reading exercises after being prescribed a stimulant medication.
