There may be specific issues you are trying to work through, or you may be experiencing a more general loss of personal direction. Either way, the decision to begin counselling can be a really daunting one. I understand and I'm here to share the challenge with you. You're in safe hands.
Life has changed so much in the past months, and we are seeing the impacts of that change on mental health. The spirit of 'just carry on' can only last so long before you need to talk, shout, scream and cry, to allow yourself the time for that to put you first. My experiences in the voluntary sector and private practice have shown me that no matter where you are in life, emotional issues and crisis are levelling, their impact devastating and to admit you need to talk to someone in itself can feel daunting. However this in itself can be a positive first step to gaining a healthier relationship with yourself.

I work from home in a purpose built log cabin in rural surroundings yet right in the heart of town. There is easy access to local transport and motorway links.

I am passionate about helping people who are going through difficult, emotional turmoil and understand that everyone is unique. I offer support with understanding and empathy along side being non-judgmental, caring and genuine.
I work with problems including depression, anxiety and low self-esteem and have a special interest in Autism and Aspergers, particularly in supporting adults who find they are struggling to come to terms with what it means to be autistic. I work in private practice and as a counsellor at Understanding Autism North West.

I'm Adele and I'm the founder of Thriving Young Minds. We are a team of therapists offering specialised support for 4-21 year olds including counselling, play therapy and filial therapy.

Maybe you're experiencing anxiety, panic, low mood, difficulties with friendships or relationships, have low self-esteem, have experienced bereavement, trauma or abuse and you're unsure of how to move forward. We can work with you to achieve your goals in a strengths-focused way, to help you develop the confidence to thrive rather than just survive.
There is so much focus these days on "What's wrong with you" using terms such as 'depression', 'anxiety', 'disorder', rather than talking about "What happened to you?" Your mental health is much more than just a label or a diagnosis and therapy offers so much more than just talking. It can give you new understanding, new insights, a different perspective, clarity about a problem and the way forward. It can teach you skills to live your life better, teach you more healthy coping strategies or simply give you the space and time for self reflection and a place to find peace of mind.
I am a fully qualified BACP accredited counsellor. I offer you a supportive environment for you to explore life’s difficulties and challenges ethically, safely and without judgement. My belief is that no matter what age we are, we all have the potential for growth and change and it is a continuous process. In addition to general counselling, I hold Practitioner status endorsed by the National Centre for Eating Disorders which qualifies me to work with all aspects of disordered eating and I have recently undergone training with the RNIB to work with counselling for sight loss.
Sometimes the issues we face paralyse us with anxieties. Sometimes we have no one in our lives who are able to help or we may not want to burden others. It’s difficult to trust people with our innermost worries, feelings and thoughts. Yet we all need help to get through difficult periods in our lives. It may be that friends and family tell us to stop dwelling on the past or try and move on. But no matter how hard we try, the past hangs around to haunt us or we have no words to describe what we feel. Additionally, we may wish to explore our experience for personal or professional reasons.
I am a highly qualified and experienced consultant psychotherapist and supervisor with 20 years experience and recognised clinical expertise in the treatment and assessment of a wide range of mental health problems (including: depression, anxiety, personality disorders and psychosis), problematic behaviours and addictions. My guiding aim is to help each client to the point where they no longer require therapy or medication, and can cope skilfully and independently with life’s challenges, and understand how the past can impede our ability to cope with the present.
People often first come for counselling when they begin to experience symptoms of low mood and anxiety such as disturbed sleep, low levels of motivation and energy, or increased rates of irritability and tension which just don’t seem to shift. These symptoms could be related to a significantly upsetting event, or they might be linked to a background of adversities and difficulties. Either way, you might be hoping to improve your mood and to reduce feelings of anxiety or panic, to regain a sense of confidence and self esteem, and to feel more energised and motivated. People often say they want to get back to their old self again.

Hello, welcome to Therapy NorthWest. We support the wellbeing of adults & young people in clinics in Chorley & surrounding areas. We believe that life can be challenging with a number of different pressures & demands. We do not believe that these things make us ‘abnormal’ or ‘ill’, rather that there are times when we require support to work through difficulties, what has happened and how we have responded. Zandra has many years experience working with individuals, couples, families and systems to help foster greater well-being.
Does life feel overwhelming? Are you being heard? Feeling low? Are you experiencing unpleasant thoughts and feelings that you are struggling to handle? At times we can all struggle. Whether that be with events from the past or ongoing situations. We are only human, and emotions do have the ability to take their toll. At times it can be easier to talk to a stranger than to someone you know. So let me introduce myself.... My name is Lisa, I am a qualified therapist. Whilst volunteering for numerous charities I have gained experience of working with adults with varying problems from low self-esteem, anxiety, depression to abuse.
Hi I'm Angela. Coming to counselling can feel like such a big step. There may be an obvious reason as to why you're feeling low, such as bereavement or a traumatic event. Equally you could be feeling sad and you don't really understand why. Perhaps you're struggling with anxiety or depression, or you're having panic attacks? Many people are struggling with their mental health for the first time due to COVID 19. Whatever you're going through I'd like to help you feel better. I'm trained in both Person Centred Counselling and Internal Family Systems Therapy (IFS). You can choose to work with either model or a combination of the two.

The work between myself and a client will allow the client time and space to understand themselves better as they embark on a path towards acceptance, change and growth. My expertise include working with anxiety and depression,processing traumatic events, low self-esteem, loss and feelings of abandonment, self-harm and suicidal thoughts.
Psychotherapy can be a broad term - I offer first and foremost a safe space for you to be yourself, without judgment and with compassion, where we can begin to unravel some of your feelings. We don't get the chance very often to really think about how we are doing, even though we might ask each other several times a day. How many times do we respond other than the "Fine, thanks! You?" Therapy is a place for me to ask "How are you?" and for you to really think about the answer.
Thank you for taking the time to look at my profile especially during these difficult times of COVID 19. Thinking about therapy sessions is a huge decision, one that you could have been thinking of for quite some time,If you feel the time is now right for you to consider therapy then please don’t hesitate to get in touch. I offer a safe space to explore feelings, emotions and look at ways of working together within a therapeutic relationship. Flexible hours are available Weds- Sat (daytime & evenings)currently using video calling & face to face. My therapy room for face to face sessions is now available based in Lower Darwen.
