I can help with all of these experiences, helping you to identify the causes and support you in overcoming them. Counselling can make a real difference to your life.

COUNSELLING CAN HELP YOU TELL YOUR STORY… Our lives shape our stories… Sometimes these stories cause us to feel anxious, depressed, stressed, sad or confused. At times our life stories can make us feel stuck, frightened or even lead to trauma. Sometimes we are unsure why we experience difficulties in our relationships whether personal or professional. Counselling can help you make sense of why you think, feel and act as you do. It can bring insight into patterns of relating and ways of being. It can empower you to set goals and make changes to move your life forward. Telling your story can promote growth and healing.

Life can present us with unwelcome events at any age. Professional counselling can't change these events but can provide tools and techniques to help minimise their impact. In my practise, counselling is primarily about the relationship between you and me. It is a talking therapy where we can explore what is troubling you in a safe, non-judgemental setting. Every person is an individual and therefore counselling can be different for everyone. I am more relationship driven rather than theory driven.

Hi, I'm Nicky. I can help if you are struggling with anxiety, stress, depression, relationship issues, or coming to terms with long-term health issues. If you find yourself fitting around everyone else's needs at the expense of your own or have not been able to move on from past experiences, or are overloaded then I can help you to turn things around. I offer a warm, safe, confidential space to talk and overcome the challenges you are facing, tune into your emotions, so they become your guide rather than overwhelm you. Most importantly build a new relationship with yourself and feel more confident and in control of your life.

Hello, I'm Dr Laura Artis. My work life passions are working with PTSD, complex trauma and people who have an Autism Spectrum Condition (ASC), although I am able to help no matter how big or small your concerns are. It can be useful for you to think about therapy goals before starting therapy, but I can help with this if you are unsure. Often goals are around improving wellbeing and recovery, however they may be about increasing self-compassion, acceptance or gaining a better understanding of why things are as they are today. I have extensive experience working with adults, young people and families within the NHS and privately.

Trying to work out the way forward in the world is hard, especially if you're young, have difficult family circumstances, have trouble with school and peers. Parents too have worries about their children and young people, they want the best but sometimes need a non judgemental, empathetic person to work through issues and challenges of modern life. Finding ways of relating to one another, gathering self-esteem and resilience are all part of the learning of the self.

Parenting Counsellors

What does therapy for parenting look like?

Therapists may work with parents individually, together, or include the whole family to find solutions for the problems a parent faces. Many parent-based therapies work on a parent’s relationship with their children, problem-solving within the family, and analysis of family dynamics. Therapy conducted remotely by video may be helpful in allowing a therapist to observe how families interact in their own homes.

When should a parent seek therapy?

When behavioural problems begin to disrupt the healthy functioning of a family, it may be a good time to look into therapy. If parents find that children are acting out in school, have started using drugs or alcohol, have developed eating disorders, or other similar red flags, a therapist may be able to help.

How long does therapy take for parenting problems?

Depending on the severity of a family’s challenges and the type of treatment utilised, therapy for parenting can last from weeks to months. Cognitive behavioural therapy is a pragmatic therapy type that can be brief, most often ranging from between 5 and 20 sessions. Structural family therapy, which inspects family dynamics, often takes several months. Parent-child interaction therapy is typically shorter-term, lasting between 10 and 20 sessions. For any therapy, the duration will depend on the progress made and results realised.

Can therapy help parents dealing with burnout or stress?

Parenting is difficult. Parents may dismiss or conceal feelings of exhaustion, overwhelm, or escape ideation—imagining withdrawing from their parental obligations altogether. but left unattended, these feelings can have negative effects on the whole family. A therapist can help parents work on the skills they might need to better cope with the burdens of parenting and help them be the best parents they can be.
