I am Senior Accredited with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, an EMDR Europe Accredited Consultant and a Integrative Clinical Supervisor. I am registered on the approved Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care (License 055765) and have experience working with adults, adolescents and couples. I am DBS and UK Gov National Security approved. I have over 17 years of experience and offer clinical assessment and treatment for a range of mental health presenting problems. These include anxiety, depression, PTSD, OCD, Bi-polar, stress, phobias, self esteem, anger, relationship problems etc
Are you feeling anxious, depressed and helpless? Putting on a brave face, I want I help you to change. I will facilitate and support you in a safe, confidential, and compassionate environment; whatever you decide to bring to counselling it will be at your pace. I aim to build a working relationship with you, enabling you to feel comfortable to explore and understand your experiences, thoughts, emotions, and how they can be connected to events in the past or the present. Through this exploration, we can work towards positive change. It may be that you're uncertain of what needs to change or where to begin and that’s okay too.
I am a BACP registered counsellor, deeply passionate about helping people. Through my own personal life experience and mental health challenges, counselling and psychotherapy has given a life perspective I would have never imagined before. I truly believe we each have our own answers, sometimes buried deep within us. Therapy is a process to unearth them - perhaps when they are needed most.
Life is hard for many of us and having a safe space to talk and be listened to, without fear of judgement or others opinions being foisted on us, is paramount to our health and well-being. Talking therapies are more relevant today than ever, as many of us are isolated and struggle in our relationships and lives. All types of mental health issues can be helped with psychotherapy. Medication is not the answer for many of us, it doesn’t help us to understand and change our feelings and responses to others. Please call for a free initial telephone consultation
Everyone is as unique and as individual as the issues, needs and goals that they present with in therapy. My various client's presenting difficulties are often diverse, ranging from those with mild anxiety and low mood - perhaps needing some clarity or direction in life - or maybe just needing to talk things through; to those with heightened symptoms of trauma, depression, distress and generally finding life extremely difficult to manage. The spectrum of emotional wellbeing and mental health is as vast as the various triggers and reasons as to why people initially come to therapy. Coping alone can feel extremely overwhelming.
Hi, I'm Mary, I am a UKCP registered Trainee Psychotherapist. I offer counselling and psychotherapy to help you help yourself, heal yourself and be yourself. I aim to help people achieve their fullest potential in life, whatever that might look like for them. I work relationally, which means our relationship is an important part of our work. Looking at how we relate to each other can give us clues as to how you might relate to people in general. This method of working can highlight any stumbling blocks or areas for change, to help you achieve better communication and understanding in your relationships.
I am committed to providing a safe non judgemental space for you to discuss any issues that may be affecting you life, relationships and general wellbeing. We are all unique individuals facing different life challenges, which we may find difficult to express in our relationships. Therapy can provide a safe space to discuss any issues that you are struggling with. I work from an integrative approach, which means I will endeavour to tailor our sessions to meet your own personal requirements, allowing you to gain the most out of your therapy.
You are brave and have identified that you need some support at this very turbulent time. When a crisis hits, a future that was once clear can become confusing and scary. Life is now very complicated and can leave us with feelings of anxiety, stress and depression. These negative feelings can make life overwhelming. Sometimes it is helpful to talk to a person not directly involved in order to gain clarity and insight.
Are your anxieties holding you back from living the life you want? Are you exhausted and lacking confidence? Maybe you would like to feel more in control and confident in yourself. I work with people like you and together we aim to make positive changes so that you can start to feel more in control of your life. If you are struggling to understand your thoughts feelings and behaviours then counselling can help you deal with these issues and help to manage the impact on your mental health and allow you the space to explore your emotions.
Sometimes in life we may feel lost, struggle with feelings of sadness, depression, worry or anxiety. We may be having difficulty coming to terms with losses in our lives, don't know where to turn in times of trouble or just need someone to listen to and understand us.
Are there issues in your life, past or present, that you haven't addressed. Are these issues preventing you from moving forward in your life, relationship or work. I am a trained Counsellor with eleven years experience. it is a requirement to undergo our own individual therapy when training therefore I am very aware that one of the most important decisions, in choosing a therapist, is to be able to connect with them. I am also aware, having been on the other side of the room how difficult it can be to open up our lives, past and present, to a stranger. Reaching out for help at a difficult time in our lives is not easy.
My name is Kirstie Eames and I’m here to help and support you to gain the skills you need to make a positive move forward. I offer one to one Integrative and Trauma counselling in a safe, confidential, Empathetic, non-judgemental space for you to be able to promote healing, build self-awareness, build self-esteem and to be heard to help you move forward in your life. As a trauma informed therapist I can provide a grounded presence where you can begin to explore your trauma while feeling safe, listened to, and held. I also work with more generalised mental health such as depression, all anxiety, PD's, behaviour disorders and OCD
I try to make therapy as available to as many people as I possible can. The cost of therapy can be quite steep so I keep my prices as low as I can so that more can access it. Therapy is about getting to where you want to be by making your own unique road map, so that you can use it again in the future if need be. I'm an Addiction Psychologist by trade, with 18 years of private practise behind me, but a lot of my work is helping many different age groups with problems such as OCD and PTSD etc. Please feel free to contact me and we can have a chat to see if i can be any help to you.
PLEASE NOTE: I am fully booked and am not currently accepting new clients. *LGBT and Asexual friendly* Life is hard. You may feel overwhelmed, stressed, anxious and depressed. You may even have been given medication by your doctor and are now unsure on what to do next. Whatever your struggles, therapy is a good way to explore and make sense of your situation so that you can make the changes you want in your life.
There are times in all our lives when we feel we have lost our way, we need a listening ear or simply want somebody to help us reach the next step in our journey. Maybe that sounds like you and you're looking for someone to help you take that first step, or maybe you simply want somebody to share your concerns with, in a safe space and really feel heard. My focus is to help individuals heal, energise, and become aware of their inner strengths by providing a neutral safe space, listening to your concerns, and customising a treatment plan. My specialities include Relationship + Family Counselling, Abuse and Narcissism and Grief/Loss
Hi my name is Kelly and I would like to start by acknowledging the courage it takes to seek help, maybe you are experiencing sadness, anxiety or depression, have experienced a loss or a traumatic event. Maybe you are looking for support for your child, and are concerned about your child's emotional wellbeing. Our thoughts and emotions deserve to be heard and respected in order that we can explore them, with the aim of understanding them. I can offer you a calm and safe environment to process difficult thoughts and feelings. I am passionate about supporting people and have experience working with Children, Young People & Adults.
Has life become a struggle? First comes the initial drink, then you're not able to take control and say enough is enough. After a long week at work, you feel stressed and constantly crave a drink BUT after, you just sit there and ask yourself 'why do I do this' - you just don't know the answer? For years you thought your lifestyle was sustainable but now you realise that it is having an impact on the people around you and you're tired of going round in maddening circles. Ultimately you fear destroying your relationships and losing the love from your, partner, kids, family and friends.
