When starting therapy you will be able to explore current and past relationships, experiences and feelings, in a safe and containing environment. Therapy is an opportunity to speak about painful experiences and feelings, to make sense of them and be able to look at them in a different light. The unconscious material, memories and traumas, will be able to emerge in a setting where they can be processed safely. The first session is an opportunity to discuss what brings you to therapy and to establish goals for our sessions. Therapy can be challenging and difficult at times, but I will be there to support you all the way through it.

Firstly, well done for finding the courage to reach out for help and taking that first step which is crucial for transforming your life. Although challenges are an unavoidable part of our existence, we are often overwhelmed by them and psychologically unequipped to deal with what life throws at us. However, in that hardship there is always an opportunity for growth and healing, which I have experienced myself. As a result, I developed a great passion for helping others to find their way forward, and for the last 13 years have provided clients with various forms of support of which counselling has proved to be the most rewarding.

Are you a scuba diver experiencing something that is getting in the way of your diving? Do you have mental health concerns, physical health and lifestyle issues you would like to address to be/stay fit to dive? Do you find difficulties or anxieties get in the way of getting what you want from your diving? Or have previous experiences such as drowning or other aquatic traumas created mental blocks to learning to dive? Have you been involved in a distressing/traumatic diving incident and finding it harder than you expected to get back in the water?

Working in independent practice, for fourteen years, I work with individuals and couples who are looking to overcome stuckness, identify unmet needs, and recognise thought patterns that may be holding them back, or resulting in unhelpful relational behaviours. The aim is to help you gain insight, heighten self awareness and develop a less self critical view of yourself. As well as problem solving, the approach is educational, preventative and growth-promoting.

Hello and welcome, I'm Emma, a fully qualified counsellor. It may feel daunting to come to therapy and finding the right therapist for you might feel overwhelming. It's okay to ask questions when searching for a therapist. You may feel confused, prehaps your overthinking things, you may be experiencing highs and lows or you might not even know what your feeling and that's okay. In counselling we can explore what this means to you and together try to understand things better.

Hello Change Seekers, I'm Tina & I've been working with people therapeutically since 1995; both as a psychotherapist and as a clinical supervisior. Following my early qualifications, I continued on with academic studies because I came to realise that the nature of the therapeutic relationship was crucial. Within that Real and Authentic relationship we can hold space for so many difficulties and reach new insights and depths of understanding about ourselves and how to integrate that knowledge to live our best lives. Ideally you will be open to explore, integrate, share, be vulnerable, want to develop and grow & reclaim yourself fully

I offer one to one talking therapy – in person as well as online. It can be a great relief to share your worries and stress with someone who isn’t your friend or family member and can therefore listen and understand without expectations or judgement. You might feel stuck with painful and difficult emotions, find yourself repeating destructive patterns or have recently experienced a loss... I won’t be able to “fix” your situation or tell you what to do but I can give you a confidential space and support you, as you explore your feelings and circumstances. I am a strong believer in the power and magic of the counselling relationship.

Thank you for taking a look at my page. You are probably here because you are struggling with something life has thrown at you. I hope I can help. It is important when embarking on a therapeutic journey that you feel comfortable working with your therapist of choice. I offer a free initial consultation so you can get a feel for how I work and if I am the right therapist for you. I work with individuals, couples and I run groups. I tend to start by working weekly but am flexible depending on your needs. Some clients are looking for long-term counselling, others might only need a few sessions.

Psychotherapy is a journey of self discovery which can help to answer the ever-burning questions: why we do the things we do? why we think the thoughts we think? It offers a fresh perspective at ourselves and an opportunity to make more informed decisions. It asks of us: is what I am doing healthy for me? If not, what can I do to change it? And finally, how to make that change last? I think of it as privilege to be able to assist my clients on their journeys and help them in overcoming the issues which have been preventing them from living happy, fulfilling and peaceful lives.

I am a relational integrative therapist. This means that you and I work in partnership to navigate a way to support you to face whichever challenges you would like to overcome. Sometimes this can be achieved through short-term work (up to 12 weeks) and sometimes a contract for much longer work will be what you need. The development of relationship between me (the therapist), and you (the client) is the driving force of how I work. Through the development of a trusted alliance we can begin to explore any vulnerabilities you bring safely in order to make sense of them together.

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.

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.
