Whilst our work is often based in the ‘here and now, it is often coloured by our past experiences, the trauma we have faced and the family narratives or scripts enforced upon us by those who were influential to us, together we can work through the labyrinth that is your life and help you map out a new journey together.
Do you feel as though you need to be heard, truly understood and supported without fear of judgement? Maybe you would like to look back at your life and learn something about the experiences that you have been through that have bought you to this moment. At some point during our life, we can all have feelings of overwhelm, isolation and despair…you are not alone! Finding Me Therapy can offer you a safe, confidential, trusting, therapeutic relationship so that together we can help you to find the true, authentic you… the you, that you have been searching for.

Hello and thank you for visiting my profile. Life can be stressful, challenging and overwhelming. This can be influenced by issues such as relationship difficulties, general anxieties and worries, feelings of panic, low confidence and self esteem, bereavement, to name but a few. However, you may feel embarrassed, unable or unwilling to share your worries with friends or family . I can provide support, confidentiality and understanding to enable you to start to move forward. You do not need to go through this on your own.

As well as online video apps, I work face to face with adults, young people (11+) and couples. Sometimes friends or family are unable to support you so an impartial professional can really help. Powerlessness, change, loneliness, grief and anxiety are just a few of the overwhelming feelings many are experiencing. There is no need to be alone in this. Call for a chat to see if, together, we can find a way forward.

I realise that making the decision to come to counselling can be frightening or tough. Eventually an event, a situation or living with anxiety, low mood, sadness, family or couple difficulties can lead you to consider this option. You have the choice to live in a more comfortable way and I can help you with this. I care deeply about the work I do and the journey we take together. We will look at the issues and feelings that are present for you, providing a gentle, holding place to both understand and work through them. This will lead you to start to feel the benefit of real change.

Is life feeling overwhelming?.. Are you feeling stressed, anxious or stuck in a rut? Sometimes life can feel tough, painful or confusing! At times we understand why these feelings have arisen such as through bereavement, family , relationship or work problems, but often we may ask: ‘Why am I feeling this way?’ Or we may just know that things are ‘not right’. These feelings will have a big impact on our relationships, work or ability to enjoy even the simplest things in life which can lead us to feel alone and isolated! Now is the time to stop struggling alone in the hope that things will get better on their own, and make a change!

I work with relationship issues, anxiety, depression, family counselling, social anxiety, self-harm, low self-esteem, bereavement, physical abuse, mental abuse, perinatal trauma, postnatal depression, baby loss and dealing with a history of sexual assault.
Hello, I'm Anna and I'm a registered counsellor with the BACP. I have availability for new enquiries, please don’t hesitate to call or text me. I'm interested in what makes you tick, what triggers you & what keeps you awake at 2am. I am passionate about learning to live from a place of love, not fear, and I do this by using the core conditions from Person-Centred therapy (unconditional positive regard, empathy and congruence) with a creative twist. I love to use metaphors & I find interactive sessions where you bring in your favourite music, books, photos are always a great source of exploration and growth.

If you are feeling that you need help in your life for whatever reason, perhaps in your relationship, family dynamic, a work situation, with depression, anxiety or your mental health; for significant loss or past or present trauma; if life is just too challenging to cope with; if the way ahead feels uncertain; if you are without hope and feeling isolated or overwhelmed; or if you simply want to explore a problem or experience to help your general wellbeing and happiness, we can work together.

Life can often feel challenging and even overwhelming at times. The therapeutic relationship between therapist and client, once formed is a safe, warm, non judgmental space that will allow the client to explore their worries and make sense of your feelings.

As a Clinical Psychologist, I work with individuals with a range of difficulties who want to improve their lives. Clients I see struggle with attachment trauma, anxiety, depression, somatic symptoms and self-criticism. They often feel drained, have little energy, live with pain, gastrointestinal complaints, and PTSD symptoms. For many, relationships are challenging, and trusting others to access help is a struggle. Through our work together, we develop greater awareness of how they relate to others in intimate relationships, and the impact this has on their body and mind, which helps them to relate to themselves differently too.

Hello and a warm welcome. I am interested to hear what brings you to counselling. I will offer you a safe space to share your story and to feel listen to. A space where you feel able to say how it is and you feel understood without being judged. I will be genuine and together we can explore your experiences in our sessions. I believe in humans' abilities to change, to grow and to heal and I feel positive that counselling can facilitate this.

My ideal client is one of complexity; I plan on to enrol onto a Doctorate becoming a counselling psychologist. I am a qualified counsellor and my knowledge base started 15 years ago when I fell ill. I have had an eventful life, including heart problems, strokes and many other issues. Through therapies, self help and determination I am happy with my life and I would love to share my knowledge. I have specialised in complex bereavement over the past 6 years seeing clients face to face and supporting them through the hard times. There is a need for more LGBT counsellors that understand and help.

What is going on for you? Where are you “stuck”? Maybe you are looking for somewhere to go to talk things through. Maybe you’re wondering why you can’t get past something that keeps coming up. You may be feeling restless, sad, frustrated or anxious. Working together, we will explore your unique life experiences to help you understand more about your thoughts, feelings, behaviours and relationships. I am trained as an integrative therapist; this means I can draw on a range of humanistic, psychodynamic and cognitive theories tailored to your individual needs, creating a bespoke therapeutic experience.

Hi, I'm Jo and thank you for taking the time to stop by my profile. So you've decided to take what feels like a scary yet very important step towards making a difference in your life and are looking for the right help with this - yes? Finding a safe, trustworthy and comfortable place is so important when it comes to therapy and I strive to offer this, either in my therapy room, via video link or over the phone, so that you can get help where ever you are. I'm trained in a variety of Counselling Theories so we can make the therapy fit you, rather than to try to fit you in to a 'therapy box' of one theory fits all.

Hi, I'm Katie and I appreciate you stopping by my profile. I bring warmth, positivity and my sense of humour to the therapeutic relationships that I form with clients. It takes courage to decide to enter therapy and together we will find what helps you the most. The areas that I offer the most support with are anxiety, low self esteem and depression. I offer a free initial discussion because it gives you the opportunity to see if you think we are a good fit. Part of the therapeutic process is the relationship that we build and therefore it is important that you feel safe, heard and accepted.

Family Therapy Counsellors

What do family therapists do?

A family therapist facilitates the process of understanding and improving how a family functions. The therapist will help family members develop empathy for one another. They’ll seek to understand existing patterns, misunderstandings, and conflicts that arise, in order to help the family arrive at a realistic, unified understanding and develop the coping skills they need to build stronger relationships.

How long does therapy for families take to work?

Therapy manifests differently in every family; a common time frame is 12 weekly sessions, but some families may see improvement after just a few weeks. Families should discuss their goals with the therapist at the beginning of the process and periodically revisit those goals to assess their progress together.

How can you encourage a family member to attend family therapy?

You can encourage family members to attend therapy by expressing with both love and concern the challenges you see and explaining how a therapist could help the family navigate those challenges together. An outside perspective can help everyone feel heard, get on the same page, and develop new skills. If family members are still hesitant, it may be helpful to emphasize that family therapy is short-term—it won’t last forever.

Is therapy for families effective?

Family therapy can significantly improve family dynamics and relationships. Research suggests that family therapy can help individuals understand their role in the family, communicate and solve problems together, reduce conflict and draw boundaries when necessary, and develop coping skills for stressors, major life changes, and mental or physical illnesses within the family.
