Online Only Therapist. Specialism: Depression/Anxiety. Commonly other issues are intertwined such as trauma, attachment issues and low self-esteem. Clients that begin to work with me often do so because they find that their feelings, thoughts or other symptoms have begun to affect areas of functioning in life; they find that coping mechanisms that have been helpful in the past are beginning to work less effectively.

Hi, I’m Tracey, I specialise in psychological assessment and therapy for women. Are you feeling overwhelmed? Are you struggling with anxiety, depression, relationships, pregnancy and motherhood, perimenopause/menopause, bereavements, traumas? As women, there can be many unique challenges and life transitions to face. Having a safe space to reflect on what's happening for you, to connect with the emotional impacts, and discover how you can learn to adapt is vital. It lets you build your sense of strength and resilience and ultimately, it encourages you to heal and continue to grow despite what life has thrown your way.

Available weekday evening's between 6pm and 11pm. Each person's journey through life is a unique experience, and when times are difficult it can often feel overwhelming and lonely, like no one understands. Things before that were easy to do are now becoming increasingly tough, or at times even impossible. There are many reasons that lead people to seek out therapy, you have already overcome the first hurdle to recovery, and that is seeking some support.

Hello and welcome to my profile. I'm Tayba and I am trained as an integrative counsellor, but also work primarily from a trauma-informed and relational perspective. I tend to employ several other approaches based on what your need is and what is right for you, such as an embodied approach. I work with a range of issues such as anxiety, depression, faith and cultural conflict, domestic abuse, sexual abuse, divorce, self-harm and bullying. The list is not exhaustive but should give you an idea of the range of issues I am able to help and support you with.

I aim to provide a safe, warm, and non-judgmental space for clients to express and explore any difficulties they might be experiencing. I believe the therapeutic rapport between the therapist and client to be a vehicle for transformation and change. I am very client lead in my work and strive to collaboratively work with clients to tailor my approach to best suit what they require from me. Not one size fits all and no one approach is suited for all clients. I believe this outlook encourages clients fostering their individuality and uniqueness. I hope to help clients to feel empowered, confident, and reconnected with themselves.

Hello, I’m Dorrie. Finding a therapist that is right for you can be completely overwhelming; there is so much choice and sometimes, the therapist jargon can be a real head scratcher. As you read through my profile, have a think about if I seem like someone you could connect with, as that is such an important aspect of finding the right therapist. You may be seeking therapy because you are feeling depressed, anxious or may want to explore who you are and what that means to you. Together we will forge a relationship which will serve as a safe haven to express and explore yourself openly, without judgment.

Empowering men to navigate life's challenges with confidence and clarity. Talking Spaces is an accessible counselling specialist service for men’s mental health, available in person or via Zoom. Generally men by nature are more action focused, so when it comes to managing difficult life events and emotions I use action and solution based therapeutic approaches and interventions when working with men’s mental health issues. Men need a service with the knowledge understand that social and cultural norms and ingrained beliefs about masculinity are one of the main barriers to seeking counselling in the first place.

If you want to change your situation on the outside, it’s good to start by looking at what you can change on the inside. Perhaps you have serious difficulties finding peace and joy in your life. Your sense of well-being, physically and mentally, may be reduced or destroyed. You might find yourself sliding into unhealthy or even self-destructive behaviours. Your persistent self-doubt leads to anxiety and depression, causing relationship problems and anger issues. You have a feeling that you do not quite know who you are.  Or perhaps you just know “something is not quite right in my life” but you can’t pinpoint what it is.
