I have a life long fascination in the nature of us as humans and in particular our emotional lives. I am interested in how complicated we all are. Sometimes it can help to take time out to try to understand ourselves better, and how we are in the world, for example, ‘Why do I keep making the same mistakes?’, ‘’Why am I so fearful, stressed or unhappy?' or ‘How did I get here?’. Therapy can help to work through some of the complexities in our lives or to make sense of and mourn painful experiences and to keep a sense of creativity and meaning alive.

Many people find themselves continually repeating familiar patterns of behaviour and attracting the same problems in their lives. If this has been your cycle, you are not alone, and it is ok to ask for support. Many clients come to me because they have a desire to change yet have been able to make these changes themselves. I have no magical ability to heal anyone or change their life, however I can help you to process how you are feeling, help you to find new perspectives, and can pass on insights and concepts that may help to make sense of your problems, so you can develop the capacity to become your own healer.

I work with survivors of boarding schools and academic hothouses. Often the strictures of these institutions, early distancing from the caregiver and the need to adapt to school/parental expectations can put the child into a survival rather than thrive mode and create difficulties for later life. These include struggles to build positive relationships including as a parent, perfectionism and at the same time feeling a failure, bullying issues, difficulties in relaxing, addictive behaviours and sleep problems. Therapy can support you to remember and reclaim parts of yourself that have got lost in your early childhood.

It is common to experience emotional distress in life from time-to-time, but sometimes we need help with managing this. Difficulties can range from a general feeling of low mood or anxiety, the pressure of challenging life events such as loss or relationship-breakdown, or coming to terms with historical events. As a qualified Psychodynamic Psychotherapist, I will provide a safe and supportive environment so that you feel able to explore your current thoughts and feelings by drawing from past experiences. From here, we can try to understand their impact on your present, and consider how you might wish to move forward. ​

I've been counselling since 1989, and have extensive experience of working with sexual abuse and trauma, parenting and attachment difficulties, identity and relationship issues, depression and anxiety, bereavement and loss. I don’t claim to be an ‘expert’ in any of these areas because everyone's response is different and what matters is you and your own unique experience of these difficulties. I am committed to collaborating with you to find the resilient, hopeful part of yourself that becomes expert in managing your challenges and is motivated by the smallest signs of progress towards your preferred future.

Hello, my name is Rebecca and i am an Art psychotherapist and EMDR trainee. I help people who may be feeling depressed, anxious, experiencing PTSD symptoms, experienced loss or need a space to explore past experiences and relationships. I believe the therapeutic relationship to be the most important part of therapy to help transform experiences of trauma and loss. Together we start where you feel safe and think about your goals for therapy. Sometimes words are too difficult and we need another tool to help talk. The use of art materials whilst speaking can create a non-intrusive and gentle way to explore past experiences.

Therapy is personal journey, unique to you and directed by what you want to achieve; I trained in Relational Transactional Analysis and use this modality to support my clients' growth in self awareness and understanding of the unconscious patterns that have been driving their behaviour. Many clients can't fully articulate what they want from therapy, only that they want things to be different, this is normal, and part of the process of therapy is working with you to discover what you want. On the way we aim to discover what blocks you from achieving your goals and support you in finding new paths to reach your goal.

Creative adjustement is at the centre of any change - I am able to bring years of experience as a creative therapist, psychotherapist and online counsellor. I have worked online for many years and face to face with adults in the NHS, higher education, wellbeing services and cross culturally/globally.

When life feels challenging, daunting or unfulfilling, it’s usually a result of trauma, difficult life events or relational issues. This can make you feel anxious, depressed and not quite yourself. Trauma sounds scary, but it isn’t always what you think it is. Sometimes trauma is the result of a big, dramatic event in your life. Sometimes, it’s an accumulation of difficult everyday events. You might feel a bit alone, disconnected or misunderstood, and you probably picked up some negative thoughts and habits as a way to cope.

I am an experienced, welcoming and open-minded counsellor. Exploring in-depth what is troubling us with someone who is really listening, not just to your words but to the person behind them, can in itself be a healing process. It may also bring to light beliefs and ways of living that are holding you back. I draw on a range of integrative talking therapies (including Internal Family Systems). When something more is needed than talking alone, Brainspotting (a somatic therapy that evolved out of EMDR) can offer a gentle but powerful way to access deeper areas of the brain where emotional difficulties arise.

I would say that an important element of analytic work is that it helps to build real internal strength; one that can enable you to know and accept yourself. For People who are able to make use of analytic work, it can provide translatable skills that help deal with ongoing difficulties, not just the ones that brought you to therapy. Analytic therapy can be short term, but tends to be relatively long term work, dealing with issues that have likely been problematic for many years.

Hi, my name is Liz. Welcome to my profile. I work with clients to help them really understand why they are thinking, feeling and behaving in the way they are. Past and present events and experiences influence how we feel about and therefore treat ourselves which then impacts on all relationships in our lives. By understanding where these thoughts come from and why you may have such huge emotional and physical reactions or equally such suppressed feelings you can change the way you behave towards yourself and others. I would like to help you make the changes you need so that you can lead a healthy, happy and fulfilling life

You may be wanting to get to grips with an aspect of yourself that keeps tripping you up or is holding you back in some way. You may be struggling with current losses, relationship difficulties, adversity, or have a sense of longing that you cannot make sense of. You may have experienced a sense of low self-esteem/ self-worth due to early experiences of being misunderstood or unaccepted for who you are or have experienced neglectful parenting or trauma or simply need a space in your life to figure something out.
