Hi, I’m Jordan! I provide CBT and EMDR therapy online or over the telephone. I’m interested in supporting you if you’re ready to make change and take some practical steps in order to overcome the problems you are currently experiencing. Approaching therapy is similar to embarking on a new healthy lifestyle plan in many ways; it requires you to take small actions on a consistent basis in order to see results! It can be a real challenge, which is why I’m here to help you problem solve and overcome any issues along the way.

Hi, would you like to address something that is troubling you? You may have a clear idea of what help you want or it may be that you know something isn't right but are unsure what it is and that's okay. Maybe you want to feel better about yourself, reach your potential and feel happier in your relationships? Are you feeling criticised by others? Perhaps you feel invisible, alone and not valued? Maybe you feel dissatisfied with your life, constantly in search of happiness whilst watching others enjoy their lives. Is this affecting your relationships? Are you stuck in this cycle? I know how hard it can be to ask for help.

Hello my name is James and I work as a counsellor and a Jungian Sandplay therapist. Jungian Sandplay is a form of therapy where you are invited to work in a tray of either wet or dry sand to make pictures and scenes that reflect what is happening in your world. Through the use of miniatures and various objects you can express your feelings, reconnect with your inner self and move forward in areas where you feel stuck. My room is equipped with shelves that provide hundreds of miniatures, ornaments and natural objects.

I am Kate I enjoy working with children we work together in a collaborative way to tackle worries, emotions and experiences that they are finding difficult. Parents are also invited to the first few meetings and perhaps to join in with explaining issues and helping set goals . I also work with adults. Trust is developed quickly so that anxieties and worries can be talked about openly. I work in a non - judgemental, accepting way. Person centred talk therapy gets to the root of all possible problems. Depression can be lifted, grief processed, phobias and anxieties worked on. Any issue can be talked about and solved.

Hello and welcome. It is normal to experience stages in life where it seems to make no sense, perhaps events feel overwhelming and life seems impossible to navigate. Alternatively relationships may be problematic or recurrent patterns of behaviour are negatively affecting everyday life. People find their way to therapy for many different reasons and it takes courage to make the decision. Coming from an Integrative approach means that I can draw from a range of therapeutic approaches. This enables me to engage with you in a way that will be most effective and tailored to best suit your individual needs.

Life is a journey and you hold the map, but at times it can lead you down a difficult road, with lots of bumps along the way. Life's journey isn't always smooth, we can get lost, take a wrong turning, reach a crossroads and be unable to decide which direction to take, or be unsure of our destination. Through talking and exploring your thoughts and feelings, counselling can help you to smooth these bumps and make your own decisions regarding which direction to take, to help you feel more in control of your own journey, and the destination that you would like to reach.

Teen Counsellors

What does therapy for teenagers look like?

When a therapist works with a teenager, the pair will talk about what the teen is struggling with and explore solutions, which may involve interpersonal skills, coping strategies, medication, or lifestyle changes related to sleep, diet, and exercise. Different therapists employ different modalities, but most involve a combination of conversation and skill building.

How long does therapy for teenagers generally take to work?

There’s variability in teenagers’ experiences and challenges; some may begin to improve from therapy within a few weeks while others may take several months or longer. Teens can discuss their progress with their therapist periodically to assess how they’re improving and any changes to the treatment plan that could potentially accelerate that progress.

How do you encourage a teenager to go to therapy?

It’s helpful to express your concern and love while framing therapy as an opportunity to explore a tool that could help improve their life; just like they practice baseball or dance, now they can practice their emotional skills. Give your teen control over the process where you can—maybe by weighing in on choice of therapist and signaling that therapy involves confidentiality, so a parent need not know all that is discussed in sessions.

How do you prepare teens for therapy?

You can prepare your teenager for therapy by describing what the process will look like and setting expectations for timeline, if requested. You can explain that the first session may begin with an assessment phase, that they can describe their experiences but that the therapist will ask questions too, and that it may take time to feel comfortable opening up. Ask how they’re feeling about the process and answer any questions calmly and supportively.
