Life is rarely straightforward and it's not always easy untangle things on your own. Psychotherapy offers the opportunity to slow down and take a bit of time to look at the conditions of our lives. From there we can start to develop awareness of how we think, feel and respond to relationships and the situations we find ourselves in. Sometimes past circumstances can come to determine how we deal with things in the present. Psychotherapy aims to help us identify patterns and choose what to change. Working through issues in this way can create more choices in how we respond to others and the circumstances of our lives.

It's never easy to take the first step towards feeling better about yourself. Have you always placed your own wellbeing at the bottom of your priority list? You may now recognise that your struggles with mental health are having an impact in all areas of your life, including your relationships? You might have become distant and withdrawn; or noticed the impact your physical health. Life feels like hard work when you feel down, stressed, or depressed. Or do you need a safe space for personal development? You may also be wishing to develop a greater self-confidence, or tools to cope more effectively with what life throws at you.

People generally look for a counsellor because they feel stuck or unable to move forward from unhelpful thoughts and behaviour patterns. You could struggle to connect with others and maintain healthy relationships. You may also feel like you can’t keep up with the people around you; as though everyone is doing better than you are. Self-acceptance and self-worth may be a problem, especially if you are suffering from anxiety and depression. Do you want to move forward and build yourself a sustainable future?

If you have been feeling sad and if negative thoughts are dominating thinking, being in lockdown will be difficult. Fears and uncertainties that we can keep in check whilst working, socialising, exercising and generally going about daily life are going to resurface. Talking does help. It gives you the chance to bring all your concerns and worries into a safe space where I can help you sort through each of them. With careful exploration we can identify what you might like to change and how to make the change. Life will feel easier and lighter as you start to gain control over how you choose to live it.

Hello. The decision to start therapy shows courage to face into and tackle issues and choices in life. This might be addressing a specific problem or challenge, or it may be about trying to make sense of things that have happened to you, or patterns that have become stuck. I am trained as a psychologist, psychotherapist and coach so we can work in the way that suits you best. I work with adults and adolescents (16+) using creative and evidence based approaches to support new ways of being. This includes people suffering with anxiety, depression, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), low self-esteem but also more general challenges.

My clients are looking to process past trauma and move on to a better quality of life. They are stuck in damaging and unhelpful cycles and would like to be able to embrace a more 'here and now' feeling. They have often experienced childhood trauma such as sexual abuse which has left them struggling to form and maintain healthy relationships. They need someone to listen to their story without judgement and who will offer a genuine therapeutic relationship that accepts who they are and challenges them to overcome the barriers that hold them back.

I know it's never easy taking the first step asking for help when you are struggling with life. We place ourselves at the bottom of list when it comes to our own well-being. Have you reached a point where you are beginning to notice your mental health is starting to impact those around you or maybe you no longer enjoy the things that used to bring you joy. Has your physical health changed, are you distant and withdrawn towards others, or maybe you put on an "act" when you around others to avoid others seeing you as you really are. Or maybe you wish to develop a greater self-confidence, or tools to cope more effectively with life?

I am offering a low cost counselling service. Through my voluntary work I see the real need for assessable counselling and I am now able to provide that through Zoom or telephone. I first discovered counselling when I was referred to one many years ago. The experience for me was life changing. It was one of my first relationships that valued my choices and it and me gave me the tools, knowledge and courage to make changes in my life. I believe no one will know the truth about themselves until you find it by yourself. In doing so will give you greater value and empower you to make your own choices.

It can be daunting reaching out to a counsellor and my hope is that I make this process as straightforward as possible for you. I have a warm, relaxed style and I am committed to ensuring the best outcomes for you. I work with adults and have experience of working with a wide range of issues including depression, anxiety and low self-esteem. Often these issues can arise from our relationships with other people or from a significant loss. I can offer you a space in which to explore how you may have been affected by issues such as domestic abuse, childhood trauma, bereavement or problems in your current relationships with others.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
Some of the most common types of mental health providers in Plymouth are psychologists, licensed counsellors, therapists, and psychotherapists, all of whom diagnose mental health conditions and provide individualised treatment.

Services offered, education, and credentials vary by type of mental health professional. Each professional in Plymouth then may specialise in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counselling, or anxiety. Although many mental health providers are not licensed to prescribe medication, they may coordinate with a provider who can.

Both in-person and online therapy sessions are available from most psychologists.
How to find a specialist?
You can refine your search using the filters on this page. There are several categories you can filter by to find mental health professionals with the experience you are looking for. You may want to filter for CBT Psychologists in Plymouth, or Child Psychologists in Plymouth.

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like Plymouth psychologists specialising in EMDR.


What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in Plymouth specialise in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or counsellor who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

Can I afford counselling?
Yes. Most counsellors offer reasonable rates or will work on a sliding scale basis. Many accept health insurance. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the counsellor.
