If you are struggling with intense feelings of fear, anxiety and sadness and if you find yourself full of panic, despair and frustration you may be trying to understand why you are trapped in these feelings much of the time. If you ruminate on situations, worry about past events, struggle to connect to those in your life and find your days consumed by worry, anger and stress, then a period of therapy may help you to gain insight into the origins of your emotional distress.

I truly believe that everyone deserves sound mental health, but sometimes life can provide so many challenges that you may end up feeling out of control, anxious or miserable, unsure which way to turn. You are welcome to talk through your experiences and feelings and be listened to in a non-judgemental, open, and empathetic manner. We will work together to develop an understanding of all you have been through and work on processing these experiences within yourself. I offer therapies for anxiety, depression, OCD, PTSD , self-esteem or confidence problems, etc. in English and Hungarian.

For the last five years I have worked within the NHS IAPT (Improving Access to Psychological Therapies) service and specialise particularly in depression, anxiety, stress, bereavement, trauma and PTSD .
Hello my name is Kathy. Are you struggling with a situation in life which is causing you to experience distress and need some help? Do you want someone to talk to without judgement? I am able to provide you with a comfortable and confidential space where you can talk about what may be causing you to experience emotional difficulties. I am a person centred, humanistic integrative counsellor and work holistically working not just with the mind, but with the body as a whole through mindfulness techniques, helping you to perhaps hear that your body is telling you more than you realise.

There's a first time for everything. Most newcomers to counselling & psychotherapy start out feeling a little intimidated by the idea of this rather mysterious process. I aim to demystify what I do - clients often comment on what they describe as a down-to-earth and accessible approach. My aim is ultimately to help you understand yourself and your behaviour. I feel that goal is best achieved by working in a non-threatening, straightforward and inclusive way.

Welcome to my practice. You may have arrived here through a stressful and painful journey. Maybe your life feels constricted, confined to the 'outside' looking into 'normality'. Maybe spaces around you - physical, social and cultural surroundings, family, work, education - seem unwelcoming or hostile. Maybe you feel exhausted by trying to protect your right to a space in life. Clients contact me for many reasons: anxiety/stress with physical symptoms, past adverse experiences, rape, abuse, anger, loneliness, disturbing dreams or intruding images, life threatening or chronic health conditions, life-long disabilities, life crisis.

'Life is not the way it supposed to be. It is the way it is. The way we cope with it is what makes the difference.' Virginia Satir, psychotherapist. Changes, challenges, fears and loss are all part of our human experience. Sometimes we can manage the difficulties we face, on other occasions we may feel overwhelmed and in need of support. This is true for people at all stages of life. I offer a safe, non-judgemental, confidential and comfortable environment where you can talk about and creatively explore your thoughts, feelings and experiences.

You may be finding life tough, finding it hard to put your finger on what’s causing distress. General feelings of sadness and low self-esteem may be making it difficult to see who you truly are. Your sense of purpose may be ebbing, or indeed gone altogether. Instead, there may be a constant, nagging feeling of wishing things were different. But not knowing what that different looks or feels like. Whether or not it even exists. Do you feel your voice is being smothered by work pressures, or your personal aims are being crushed? The overwhelming anxiety that seems to dictate your every thought and move...

My name is Jacqueline and I qualified as a counsellor in 2008. I have since worked with a wide variety of issues such as bereavement, anxiety, low self worth, lack of confidence, addiction, relational issues such as couples, autism, understanding self concept, shyness and much more. I believe that the professional working relationship between the counsellor and client is of fundamental importance as it provides opportunities in which change can occur. For that reason I provide a free assessment of your needs. Also meeting myself prior to engaging in any counseling will help you to decide if I would be the right counsellor for you.

Life not turned out how you had expected or hoped? Something not sitting right? A niggling thought or unrest within you? Happiness feels out of reach? Having experienced my own, at times, bumpy journey it has given me a fierce and unshakeable belief that change is possible in us all and we all have the potential to have a life beyond our wildest dreams! That’s not always to say we get what we may have fantasised about but that we work on ourselves; and as we embark on this our dreams change and they become reachable as we become more teachable and learn about the authentic us and what we really want

I use the Person-Centred approach as a foundation for my practice, as the therapeutic relationship between the client and therapist is an important aspect of therapy. A trusting, non-judgemental and respectful relationship between you and your therapist is at the heart of any successful therapy. I aim to offer you a safe, confidential and relaxed environment in which we can explore and talk about the difficulties or challenges you are facing.

Is life getting you down? Do you feel listened to and supported? Are you lonely? Do you sometimes feel you may be acting against your own best interests? Do you wonder where certain patterns of your behaviour come from and why, so much of the time, you feel unable to bring about lasting change in the ways you relate to other people, and to life generally? I believe that the relationships we form early in life are critical to the personality we develop. Some of those early experiences will work to our good, whilst others may be at the root of why we find ourselves struggling, often without realizing it. Self-awareness is key.

Trauma and PTSD Counsellors

When should I seek treatment for trauma?

Not everyone who undergoes trauma needs therapy to heal, but many do. If, after experiencing a traumatic event, you find yourself struggling with symptoms such as nightmares, dissociation, irritability, or emotional numbness—especially if these symptoms last more than a month and are severe enough to interfere with your daily functioning—you may benefit from seeking out therapy with a trauma-informed provider.

How long does trauma therapy take?

Different types of therapy for trauma unfold on different timelines. Prolonged exposure therapy and cognitive processing therapy, for example, each take about three months, while trauma-informed CBT may last anywhere from 8 to 25 sessions. Other approaches, especially those that are less structured or that incorporate elements from multiple modalities, may be more open-ended, though many patients report feeling better within the first few months of treatment.

What happens if trauma is left untreated?

Unaddressed trauma can have serious—even devastating—effects on relationships, career, and day-to-day functioning. Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) can lead people to distrust or lash out at others, making it difficult to maintain intimate relationships; it can also trigger symptoms such as flashbacks or hyperreactivity that can interfere with a person’s ability to function effectively, personally and/or professionally. Some sufferers turn to drugs to find relief. Symptoms may lessen on their own with time, but there is no guarantee that PTSD will resolve on its own.

Can PTSD come back after treatment?

It is possible for PTSD symptoms to recur months or years after successful treatment. This is because, like most mental health disorders, it is not possible to “cure” PTSD, and stressful life events may cause symptoms to recur in even the most resilient individuals. There is no shame in re-experiencing PTSD symptoms nor in returning to therapy when such relapses occur; indeed, many forms of trauma therapy explicitly encourage periodic “maintenance sessions” to reinforce coping skills and ensure that symptoms stay manageable.
