Investing in yourself can sometimes feel hard to do; you can always convince yourself that other things or people are more worthy but investing in counselling will be the greatest gift you can give yourself and can change your life. Counselling can be accessed for a number of reasons; something really specific may have happened or you might just have feelings you want to understand more, or behaviours you want to change. Whatever it is, we can explore things together so you can understand yourself better and put steps in place so you can live a more positive, happy and fulfilling life.

Hello, my name is Charlotte. I am a fully qualified counsellor & psychotherapist, trained in the person-centred humanistic approach. Most people experience personal difficulties at some stage in our lives. It is quite normal and understandable to struggle with such issues, and to need some help and support during these times. I can offer a confidential non- judgemental environment and a in which you can safely explore whatever it is you may be feeling or experiencing, in your own time and at your own pace. The way I practice is non-directive, allowing clients to explore their concerns in an environment where you feel safe.

Many of us find ourselves struggling to cope with past or current traumatic events, depression, work related stress, loss, relationship issues and various setbacks in life. It can feel very overwhelming if we mask our feelings and try to battle through alone. Perhaps you always put other peoples needs first and want to learn how to have your own needs met. You may have difficulties in your relationships and want to understand why unhealthy patterns of relating keep repeating themselves. Problems in our childhood such as abuse and neglect can rob our self esteem and confidence as adults. Counselling can help with many of these issues

Has the time come for you to consider change? Are you ready to take that step? Perhaps you've been affected by a loss, or lifestyle changes which are hard to accept. Sadness or feelings of isolation may be overwhelming right now. Has the pandemic left you feeling out of sorts or a little at sixes and sevens?

I believe the relationship between the client and counsellor is hugely important. I am a warm and approachable person, focused on putting you at ease. At times in life, it can feel that people don't understand us, like we are being judged for the way we feel. It can be helpful to communicate these thoughts and emotions to gain a clarity and understanding to help you find a more fulfilling way of living. From personal experience, I understand that counselling can help make profound changes in their lives and relationships. These changes happen through a greater understanding and acceptance of ourselves.

We all experience difficult times in our lives, suffering anxiety, depression, stress, anger, relationship issues, grief, bereavement, physical illness, emotional/physical abuse, low mood, and low motivation, to name just a few of the reasons people come to therapy. At times we will feel like we don’t want to ‘burden’ people with how we feel so we try to push through and carry on, we try to pretend all is ok, we try and cope by putting on a smile and a brave face, often we simply find we are unable to move forward and feel stuck.

Most people find themselves in dark or confusing places at times throughout their lives, questioning who they are, wrestling with difficult questions, trauma, illness, addiction or bereavement. Sometimes people don't have anyone to share these challenges with or can't share them with those close to them. Despite proverbs about sharing problems, as a society we don't really encourage people to open up. I believe that everyone should have the opportunity to do this. I hope to offer a space in which you can feel safe and respected while you explore these challenges and move towards improved mental well being.

I support clients struggling with family trauma, social anxiety and health issues. You may have found that over time the coping strategies you previously relied on have stopped working and patterns of behaviour from the past are holding you back. You may feel isolated and worn down by these old habits, no longer able to cope in the way you used to as it becomes harder to put a brave face on what is an increasingly challenging situation. Working together, with empathy and without judgement, in a safe, supportive and confidential environment, we can explore your experience and help you to find a better way forward that brings you joy.

I am a very experienced and professional therapist with over twelve thousand client contact hours behind me in individual, couples and group work. I feel my experience coupled with my life experiences makes me the person and the therapist I am today. My training in the person-centred approach (three years) and in Transactional Analysis (seven years) together with continuing professional and personal development and supervision give me a strong theoretical and experiential focus to bring to my client work. I work very much in a relational way (research indicates that the therapeutic relationship is key to positive therapy outcomes)

Within my practice I provide a safe, non-judgemental, professional and confidential environment in which you can explore whatever you feel necessary. Through exploring these issues, we can both begin to understand what is happening and why. This process can assist in self-understanding which in-turn boosts self-confidence and compassion. With this knowledge you may then become empowered to make the necessary changes needed in your life to address whatever has been causing the discomfort.

We all have times when we feel lost, alone or misunderstood. We want things to change but we don’t know how. Unsure of what we want we may talk to family or friends, but all they do is offer opinions. Sometimes we have no one to talk to and remain trapped in isolation unsure of own truth. This is where counselling can help.

I offer professional, counselling experience in which you are able to explore your issues in a safe warm environment. Hourly sessions are offered from 4pm - 8pm Monday - Friday and Saturday mornings. I personally believe many people will benefit from counselling by helping individuals to understand their difficult experiences, along side the feelings and emotions attached to it. This process can be empowering, by enabling the client to work towards changing their lives to become more fulfilled. It takes great courage and strength to accept help with mental and emotional well-being, to work collaboratively.

Hoarding Counsellors

What is the most effective treatment for hoarding?

Cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) has been well-studied in the treatment of hoarding. This type of therapy includes changing beliefs surrounding possessions, as well as learning how to discard items and reduce acquisitions. The hoarder may also gain much-needed organizational skills. Another useful therapy may be compassion-focused therapy, which can address emotion regulation and negative self-perception.

How long does therapy for hoarding take?

Although treatment can vary, most people demonstrate improvement after 23 sessions, with some showing improvement after just a few sessions. Researchers have developed a 26-session cognitive behavioral program. People who hoard may need “maintenance” sessions over the years if the problem arises repeatedly.

Are there medications for hoarding?

The more commonly-prescribed medications for hoarding are including antidepressants, including selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), and serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs). This can include drugs such as venlafaxine and paroxetine. And because hoarding disorder is related to obsessive-compulsive disorder, medications for OCD, such as clomipramine, may be effective for hoarding as well.

Can hoarding come back after treatment?

Hoarding is a chronic disorder and it can last throughout an individual’s lifetime. Regularly checking in with a psychotherapist can help manage symptoms long-term. A good therapist will help the person learn needed skills including decision-making, organization, and stress reduction. The patient will gain a better perspective and the need to cling to useless items will lessen.
