I am a qualified Clinical Psychologist, Cognitive Behavioural Therapist and EMDR therapist working in both the NHS and private practice. I am experienced in providing therapy to adults suffering from a variety of psychological difficulties and/or relationship problems. I have a particular interest in working with individuals who are affected by past traumas and/or psychosis. I acknowledge that when seeking help for such difficulties time is of the essence and therefore I employ three associate therapists in my clinic so that if I do not have availability immediately then hopefully they will. Please do get in touch for a chat.

Whether you are coming to therapy for the first time or seeking a new way of looking at things, your reason for coming to therapy is unique to you. I work collaboratively with you to discover meaning of current distress or patterns of behaviour which you may be finding difficult, through its association with past relationships and experiences. My goal is to help you feel like a more confident, authentic version of yourself who will be better equipped to deal with difficult feelings in the future.

My name is Hannah and I offer a kind, safe, highly specialised space to address whatever is going on for you right now and guide you in the right treatment to help you to achieve change.

My sessions will help you to understand your difficulties, build your resilience and move you toward the life you want to live.

My training is integrative incorporating different counselling approaches. I use the person centred approach, and draw on others such as Psychodynamic and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. Counselling provides a place for difficult thoughts and feelings to be processed. It helps to bring about clarity and understanding to issues that may feel confusing. I desire to provide you a safe space to explore and develop an understanding of how your past may be impacting on your present and how to make new choices that will bring change. Sessions can be a single 90 minutes; blocks of 7 x 50 minutes weekly sessions or ongoing weekly sessions.

All of us can encounter moments in our lives where our habitual ways of doing things don’t seem to work any longer and we get stuck. Counselling can help working through these difficulties, by becoming aware of what we do and how we do it and whether our ways of thinking or doing things are helpful or not. This awareness is the foundation for change and together we can find new perspectives and kinder ways of engaging with yourself, that enable you to experiment with a wider variety of choices and support you leading a happier and more satisfying life.

Our wellbeing is influenced by so many things – our identities, families, friendships, relationships, gender, sexuality, race, worldview, faith, finances, work, studies, past experiences, traumas, mental health, systems of oppression, physical health and much more. In our therapy sessions I offer a space for you to explore these things and make meaning of your experiences. Together we can consider: Which things are causing you to feel unhappy or anxious? Which things are important to your identity? Which of your experiences are painful or caused trauma? How do you relate to yourself & others? What would you like life to look like?

Life’s challenges can sometimes weigh us down and stop us from being healthy, happy, and successful. Emotional issues such as addictions, anger, anxiety, depression, do not just make us feel bad, but they also jeopardize our futures. Furthermore, problems with families, friends, domestic partners, or spouses can leave us feeling distressed, lonely, and unworthy. Additionally, serious health conditions, financial troubles, loss of loved ones, and other crises can devastate us and make it difficult to get back on track.

You may find it difficult, sometimes impossible, to control feelings of panic, anger, unworthiness or despair. If everyday life sometimes overwhelms you, for whatever reason, whether it's a result of trauma, difficult life changes, or unhelpful ideas about who you are, change is possible and can be quicker than you would think! If you are looking to gain perspective, learn ways of coping, feel more in control and hopeful about your ability to cope, I can help.

I comprehend that everyone, regardless of age and stage, can be confronted by the difficulties and challenges of life. I provide specialist, one-to-one, creative psychotherapy to children, adolescents and their families. Children may be referred for common reasons such as anxiety, depression, self-harm, low self-esteem and family relationships. With my compassionate support, a confidential space and a bespoke therapy plan, many children grow, gain huge emotional insight and make much personal progress. I also work closely with families providing emotional support, reviews and advice if needed.

I believe that every client is unique, so I like to tailor the sessions to you and your needs. I know how dauting it can be to trust and open up to a new person, therefore I offer a warm, confidential and safe space where you can unpack your thoughts and issues, encouraging you to gain a better understanding of your inner thoughts and concerns without the fear of being judged. Sometimes, but not always, we might look at the past and see how it has impacted and influenced your present. I believe that with the right support everyone has the ability to move towards the best version of themselves.

To navigate between locations within the same country, enter a new city or postcode into the search bar.

Learn more about how to find a therapist.

Is online therapy a good option?

Therapy conducted online or over the phone can be just as effective as in-person therapy, as long as there is a strong alliance between the client and the therapist. To find a therapist who provides telehealth services to clients in your area, click “Online Therapy” on the directory homepage and search by your city or town or your postcode.

What’s the difference between a psychologist, a therapist, and a counsellor?

Therapists, psychologists, and counsellors are all licensed mental health professionals. In many countries, psychologists have earned a doctoral degree. The terms “therapist” and “counsellor” are used somewhat interchangeably, but generally therapists offer longer-term, mental health care, while counsellors offer shorter-term care that may focus on one domain, such as marriage, career, or academic challenges.

What type of therapist is right for me?

Clients should consider factors such as insurance coverage and their primary reason(s) for seeking therapy to determine the type of professional best suited to their needs. Someone struggling with mental health challenges such as depression or anxiety, for example, may wish to seek out a clinical psychologist, psychologist or therapist, while someone navigating career obstacles or marital upheaval may benefit from seeing a counsellor who can offer short-term, targeted support.

Is everyone in the Psychology Today Therapy Directory a licensed therapist?

The Psychology Today directory lists providers who offer legitimate mental health services to the public, including psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and counselors. Many have been licensed by the country where they practice; providers whose license or primary credential has been verified by Psychology Today are signified by a “Verified” symbol. Some clinicians or organizations provide services for which their state or country does not offer licenses, such as pastoral counselling. They may be selectively included without the “Verified” seal.

What type of therapy is right for me?

The type of therapy best suited to a particular individual depends on several factors, including their primary reason for seeking therapy, their preferred timeline (some therapy types last for a set number of sessions, while others are open-ended), and their personality and preferences—some may prefer a more structured approach. For many individuals, multiple types of therapy could provide a good fit.

Is online therapy cheaper than in-person therapy?

Many therapists charge the same amount for online therapy as they do for in-person therapy—though clients may still find this cost-effective if it cuts down on their transportation costs. Health insurance plans often offer equivalent coverage for online and in-person therapy; indeed, in many places, they are legally required to do so. Text-based or on-demand therapy apps may be cheaper than traditional one-on-one psychotherapy; however, the practice may be less effective and is not likely to be covered by insurance.
