I am the kind of therapist that wants my clients to develop and reach their full potential, however that may manifest for you. You may be experiencing feelings of anxiety or depression, perhaps you're in a difficult relationship you're struggling to navigate. Or maybe you simply need a safe space to let out your stressors. By pulling on theories and methods from psychodynamic, CBT and person centred counselling, my aim is to get you to a stage where you feel empowered to move forward. I work in a non-judgemental and empathic approach and hope to be a friendly face that you can trust.

Welcome! . Life can be hard and challenging sometimes. The uncertain times we live give arise to anxiety, fear and often confusion. It might help to talk to explore your inner landscape and be supported in your understanding and choices that might be open to you. It takes courage sometimes to live life- change always take great courage. Psychotherapy is a collaborative journey where I help you into a different, perhaps more satisfying relationship with yourself. You might want to set goals, heal past hurts, find new ways of dealing the past and prepare for a different future.

Hi, my name is Laura Turner and I am an experienced Clinical Psychologist, with training in Cognitive Analytic Therapy. Sometimes people can find themselves stuck in patterns of thinking, feeling and doing and may struggle to know what is preventing them from moving forward and making change. You may be feeling stressed or anxious, experiencing low mood, problems with sleep or be having difficulties in your relationships, at work or with your health. You may have experienced difficult or traumatic events, either in the past or more recently and these may be impacting how you cope, keeping you stuck in negative patterns.

For some time now you might have been struggling to make sense of how you are feeling and wish to talk things through with a professional. This could relate to difficulties with your mood and some behaviours you are not happy with and want to explore and work on these. Perhaps this was because of a recent event, or something that is related to your early childhood experiences, or even a combination of different life circumstances. You may be thinking that despite already seeking help for some of the issues that you have been facing, you feel unfulfilled and think that something is missing in terms of healing.

Hello, my name is Mick Dixon. I am a person-centred psychotherapist. I’m drawn to those concerns that we have regarding our meaning and purpose in the world that can touch us in unique and distinct ways: as melancholy, anxiety, loneliness, unnamed trauma, illness, inertia or as anger, self-criticism or feelings of powerlessness. I am also interested in the the correlation between the body and mental wellbeing and how our environments social, political, biological, physical, impact on us both bodily and psychologically.

I am Helen & I'm an Accredited Integrative Psychotherapist & Counsellor. I know that it takes a huge amount of courage to seek out counselling. I recognise that & will provide an authentic, non judgemental approach to exploring whatever it is you might bring to therapy. An integrated approach means I draw on a number of specific therapies that can treat each client in a variety of situations, rather than having a single approach. I believe a therapeutic relationship & trust are of key importance in therapy work & have a down to earth, but highly compassionate approach, often taking a trauma informed approach to counselling.

My role, as a psychodynamic therapist, is to provide an environment that is confidential and safe. This is why I do what I do. I provide an outside perspective to help you understand how your past influences present behaviours; your use of defences to avoid reality and awareness of how unconscious reoccurrence operates in your life. With your assistance my aim is to develop different strategies in making better choices to existing problems and explore beliefs of past feelings, memories. This doesn’t mean all your life is broken, but certain grey areas compromising the relationships you’re having with self and others.

Alcohol Use Counsellors

Are there specific medications for alcohol use?

There are oral medications approved to treat alcohol use disorder—such as disulfiram, acamprosate, and naltrexone, which also comes in an injectable form. These medications do help people reduce their drinking as well as avoid the problem of relapse. Naltrexone helps reduce cravings, disulfiram can make a person feel sick when they drink, and acamprosate may help ease symptoms like poor sleep and anxious feelings.

How do alcohol recovery or rehabilitation programs work?

In inpatient programs, individuals live in a facility with other patients in recovery; in outpatient programs,individuals live at home. These facilities are staffed with healthcare professionals including physicians, nurses, psychologists, counselors, and psychotherapists. Staff can also include people who have recovered themselves, serving as mentors and guides. These programs may use abstinence, harm reduction, detoxification, psychotherapy, and other tools for recovery.

How do 12-step programs combined with psychotherapy work?

Members of 12-step programs help each other reach abstinence and work to maintain it. These programs promote complete change in the individual’s emotional, mental, physical, and even spiritual perspectives. Some programs require that new members attend 90 meetings in 90 days. Many people do attend these programs in conjunction with their work in psychotherapy; the combination of therapy along with 12-step can be extremely effective.

How does harm reduction combined with psychotherapy work?

According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, harm reduction prevents death, injury, disease, overdose, and substance misuse. People who choose harm reduction for alcohol use reduce the amount of alcohol they intake. It is not abstinence-based like a 12-step program, but combining harm reduction with psychotherapy proves to be effective for many people.
