We are all unique and therefore each one of us behaves differently when we are faced with certain difficulties that life sometimes presents. This can be challenging for us all and due to our personal circumstances we react in different ways in order to deal with them in the best way we can. Occasionally, these circumstances can feel overwhelming, and we can lose sight on our best way forward. I will help you discover different ways on how to deal with your difficulties and feelings, whether it's anxiety, depression, phobias or trauma, to establish which emotional needs are not being met, ensuring you move forward in a positive way.
I am a Clinical Psychologist and a Mum. I specialise in working with children, teens and families. I know how it feels when you are worried or concerned about your child's well-being. You want to understand and address the issue, to make things better for them and your family. It can be a struggle to find and access the support you need in a timely manner. I run my practice without a waiting list so you can access psychological understanding and help when you need it.
I absolutely believe that one of the bravest things you can do, is to better understand you and your own story. Exploring and better understanding your feelings, thoughts and emotions and how they fit into you and your story will help you live your life on your terms. You completely deserve to live the life you want to live. I’m Ben and I am just a regular person who will treat you with care, compassion, and without judgement regardless of whatever it might be that is going on in your life. I promise you that I will meet you at a human level, interacting with you as a real person and not an expert.
There are times in our lives when we just don't quite feel like ourselves. There are many reasons this can happen and we may not always understand why! At my home based Counselling space, I provide a comfortable, welcoming and safe place for you to explore your thoughts and feelings. A unique space of freedom for you to explore whatever it is you feel is weighing you down. I genuinely care about you, your mental health and future happiness. You already have all of the answers so together we will find them and get you back to feeling like you again.
I offer counselling and psychotherapy to individuals (young people/adults) who may have identified specific personal difficulties and / or want to understand more about themselves in order to allow choice, change and movement in life. I also provide supervision for counsellors and psychotherapists. I work with a number of issues, ranging from anxiety, depression, OCD, relationship problems and personality disorders. My aim is to work with the person rather than the diagnosis.
Are you struggling right now? Do you need to talk but prefer not to burden those closest to you? Maybe you are looking for support for your child? Capella Counselling is a safe place where you can talk in confidence, working through whatever it is that is troubling you. I can support you to manage anxiety, depression, loneliness, stress, relationship difficulties, loss, self-harm and more. You may be here because you are concerned about a loved one, it may be your son or daughter you are seeking help for. I am able to work with you to support your child to manage school, friendships, build self-esteem and emotional resilience.
I know how difficult life can feel at times and I want to help. I hope by offering you a safe space to talk, we can begin to explore some of those difficulties together. I always offer clients a free consultation over the phone and discern what would work best for you - short or long term work, in person or over the phone or online. At all times, I will be led by your needs and we will continually review our work together, to make sure you are getting what you need.
If you're experiencing difficulties with your relationships or issues from your childhood, situations you find difficult which may include past and present life events and you wish to explore feelings, emotions, thoughts or your behaviour then counselling or psychotherapy can support you to reach emotional wellness. It helps to develop a better understanding of yourself and of your relationships.
My name is Jackie and I am a very experienced, fully qualified Counsellor, based in Stourport, Worcestershire. We all experience emotional times in our lives which we can struggle to make sense of, or to cope with. This can lead to many different feelings which can include stress, anxiety and depression; low self worth and an overwhelming sense of hopelessness . I offer my clients the opportunity to explore those often painful or challenging aspects of their lives in a safe, friendly and trusting environment, helping them to feel at ease and that they are not alone in exploring life challenges without being judged.
Sometimes, things happen that can be too hard to manage by yourself. Are you feeling stressed, anxious, scared or alone? Are your relationships going wrong? Has something bad happened to you? Do you need to make a decision but you're not sure where to turn? Has someone you know died and it's affecting you more than you think it should? Would it help to talk to someone who's outside of the situation?
In these challenging times you may be experiencing anxiety, struggling to make sense of your world while coping with existing emotional issues. I understand how difficult this can be and offer a safe, confidential space where we can explore the issues or events that have led you to seek counselling. At various stages in our lives we can struggle to make sense of things, whether in our relationships, working lives, due to bereavement or any major life event. This can result in feelings of anxiety, low self esteem, depression and lack of motivation and energy. We may feel our relationships are in crisis and cannot see a way through.
My name is Kate Alliss and I am a qualified and experienced counsellor based in Stourbridge, West Midlands. I will offer you a safe space to talk confidentially about your difficulties without fear of being judged, with empathy and with understanding. When we experience difficult times in our lives, we often struggle to understand our emotions and often find it hard to cope with our day to day lives. By working with you I will try to help you make sense of your thoughts, feelings, responses and reactions to overcome the obstacles in your life that prevent you from feeling happy and fulfilled.
I believe we are all susceptible, at some point in our lives, to feeling overwhelmed by what life can bring. Sometimes we encounter experiences that are hard for us to come to terms with leaving us in need of support, this may be in the form of a bereavement, a relationship breakdown, a job loss; any event that we struggle to comprehend and understand. Other times a series of events may have taken place that leave us feeling like we are walking under a big black cloud and fail to see a way forward. At times like this counselling can help.
I'm passionate about helping people to resolve their problems and achieve their goals. This is therapy not simply to understand yourself, manage your emotions or control your behaviour but, rather, to resolve therapeutic problems permanently by identifying the biographical origins and 'relearning' the experience. The main approach used, Relearning Experience Process, is a brief, solution-focused therapy requiring only a few consultations to achieve complete resolution. I have 23 years' experience helping people overcome OCD, PTSD, childhood abuse, depression, social anxiety, lack of confidence or assertiveness and need for approval.
Something has brought you to the point of seeking counselling, that might be a good place to start. Whatever you're feeling, expereincing and thinking you will find a safe space to explore and consider whatever you choose to bring.
It is YOU and your well-being that sits at the centre of everything I offer. Whatever the reasons that have brought you to counselling, be it temporary difficulties, lifetime concerns, a clearer insight into your thoughts, feelings and behaviours or a need for personal growth and development. I will provide you with a safe, relaxed and confidential space where you can truly be yourself without judgement. We will also work at a time and pace that is right for you.
I am Sade and I aim to support you with varying emotional, psychological and general difficulties. I also realize that not everyone has a main 'problem' as such. We sometimes simply want to understand ourselves better, explore our feelings discreetly and without judgement, develop healthier relationships and have better life experiences. Whatever your reason for seeking therapy at this time, you are welcome to my practice, Simi Sara. I hope we can develop a relationship that supports you in reaching your goals, dealing with hard issues and being heard. Sessions with me are usually weekly, at a time convenient for us.
As a Clinical Psychologist, I offer individual therapy where you can expect me to create a space where it feels safe enough to share, where we can get to know your story more deeply, and work through what may be blocking you from living a more fulfilling life. Following an initial consultation to better understand your reasons for seeking therapy, together we can think about what therapy would look like.
I’m Emma - welcome to my profile. It's my belief that we all have within us the ability to heal, change and grow - allowing us to be the people we want to be and live the lives we want to live.
