Do you find that there's too much going on in your head to think straight? losing sleep and not feeling like yourself? Perhaps you're struggling with something current, perhaps the past is holding on? Maybe you're not even sure what the problem is? I aim to offer you a safe and independent space with a trusting relationship where we can explore what you're going through without judegement or expectation. My philosophy is to support others in supporting themselves and I find what helps people is a warm, empathic and neutral space with a person you feel confident sharing the parts of your life that feel vulnerable, safely.

Coming to therapy can be a difficult decision to make. When we are having difficulty in life our thinking can become muddled or unclear and we do things that we think might help in the short term, but can perhaps have a negative effect in the long term. This can cause us to get trapped in unhealthy cycles. You might be feeling unpleasant emotions or be trapped in a way of thinking that might be unhelpful. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) can help to unravel the complex human thoughts and emotions that sometimes contribute to being less than at our best, and find new ways of thinking and being to move forward.

Hi, I'm Maisie and I offer EMDR therapy for people during pregnancy and in the years following birth. Sadly, a high percentage of people experience birth and perinatal trauma which can have long lasting effects on emotional wellbeing and can also impact on bonding with your baby. I understand the transition to becoming a parent can be difficult, even without experiencing birth trauma. I also offer EMDR therapy to people who have had difficult childhood experiences as this can often come to the surface when you become a parent yourself. EMDR can help you process any difficult feelings you have associated with your own childhood.

We may find it helpful to talk problems through with someone close to us, but sometimes friends and family can not help and we need to speak to a professional therapist. I will spend time talking with you to understand your difficulties and to help you identify the roots of your problem and identify what you want to change in your life. In doing so we can find a way to work together to help you to reach your goals. ​I have worked with issues surrounding, anxiety, depression, trauma (including PTSD), low self esteem, stress, emotional management difficulties, phobias, OCD, relationship difficulties, and grief.

I believe that for any of us to overcome challenging times, we need to be willing to put in the work. I can teach you how to do this. I offer a range of therapies and my aim is to not only help you with the problems you are facing now, but to help you learn how to be your own therapist when problems arise in the future.

Whether you are experiencing anxiety, having difficulty adapting to the ever-changing demands of the world, or finding it hard to express yourself, you don't have to cope alone. Flexible Mind Psychology offers specialist therapy for those who are feeling disconnected or isolated, even when they are around lots of people, leaving them feeling unable to access help from others or unable to contemplate new ways of thinking. If you are someone who is often assumed to be coping perfectly well, who doesn’t like to make a fuss, and who appears to be okay on the outside but who is actually struggling on the inside, get in touch.

As a humanistic integrative counsellor, I love helping individuals reconnect with their authentic selves, become more self-accepting, heal and achieve personal growth. We all face challenges that test our emotional resilience. There are times when these challenges become too overwhelming and you may be finding it difficult to bounce back from your problems. Recognizing that you aren’t coping well with your challenges and emotional discomfort is a significant step to healing and asking for help can be highly rewarding. Instead of facing your problems alone, counselling can help you work through your issues more effectively.

Life can feel tough and challenging at times. This may be following a specific life event, a change of circumstance, or for reasons completely unexpected or unknown. When we are struggling with something difficult we can often feel unhappy, confused, anxious or overwhelmed, with a sense of feeling stuck and unsure of where to start or what to do. Whatever your reason for accessing therapy, I believe that we all have the capacity for change and positive personal growth and that counselling can support you to bring about the change you want by helping you to find ways of placing yourself back in control.

With much understandable anxiety, overwhelm, depression, loss and sadness at this time, I offer a caring, safe, confidential, supportive and non-judgemental space to explore whatever brings you to therapy at this time. Alongside you, I may work towards enabling a surer sense of yourself; safely working with relationship issues (in the past or present); to understand life-changes (e.g. divorce/separation/retirement/identity issues/ bereavement and loss); and in working traumatic moments or life-events. I offer short and longer term work. Each session can potentially discover something new as a spur to growth and healing.

Feeling like you are the only person in the world with your thoughts, feelings or behaviours can leave you feeling pretty lonely and isolated from society making a perfect breeding ground for depression and anxiety, it can make you constantly question your identity and leave you comparing yourself to others around you.
