I am a counsellor that helps people with anxiety and depression to be able to cope better with life and feel more relaxed.
Hello and welcome. Finding the right therapist can feel a bit challenging and I would encourage always to try a few different ones before you decide. You are welcome to contact me to ask any questions that you may have by email or text is the best way to do this and from there we can arrange to speak on the phone at a time that suits you. I have been coaching clients for the last 16 years. My clients have described me as easy to talk to and relaxed, though I do offer a free assessment which is a two-way meeting to see how we get along, so you can dip your toe in the counselling/therapy water with no obligation.

Both of these are evidence based treatments, proven to be very effective in the treatment of trauma, depression and anxiety.
Life can often present us with some difficult and painful challenges. How we respond to these challenges, will vary according to our life experiences, especially our early childhood experiences. Having the time and space to untangle and make sense of our past and it’s impact on our present, will help us move out of unhelpful thinking styles, help us move from being stuck in negative relationships and also help find ways to make the changes necessary in our lives. However, on occasion when the source of a persons difficulty is linked with traumatic experiences, then a more specialised trauma focused approach is required.

Counselling is all about listening, sometimes to what is not even being said.

Crucial to this is developing a trusting, consistent relationship within which we can explore far and wide, whilst remaining safe and contained. I am a Registered MBACP counsellor with years of experience in clinical work in community services, GP surgeries and private practice. Talking therapy is nothing new, it helps, it can change lives and transform individuals.

Feeling overwhelmed, anxious, down? Are you having issues in your relationships, or perhaps you're wondering how on earth it got to this? These thoughts and feelings can be isolating and, when allowed to, can take over. But, by taking these initial steps you’ve already accepted that this is not who or where you want to be; this is not your forever.

At various points in our lives we may find ourselves needing a little extra support. Sometimes the only way to get a handle on a problem is to share it with a complete stranger in the knowledge that you will not be judged, but supported toward reaching your goals. Whether those goals are to understand yourself better, increase your confidence or self-esteem, move on after divorce or bereavement or to begin to move past traumas and understand what is holding you back in your current life. I am here to help you explore what is happening for you right now.

Hello, I'm Rhiannon, a relational integrative therapist. This means that the relationship between client and therapist lies at the heart of my practice. The idea of therapy can be a daunting one, and sharing difficult experiences, fears and hopes with a complete stranger sounds like an odd concept. This is why I place huge importance on building a supportive and trusting relationship, where I encourage honest and open feedback from my clients. I very much view therapy as a collaborative process, where both therapist and client contribute.

Depression Counsellors
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy by depression counsellors in Ramsgate. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
