In troubling times it can sometimes feel like you are alone & seeking help might feel really difficult. Just having a space to make sense of the thoughts that jumble around our heads is invaluable. Perhaps you need to understand yourself, your relationships or events from your past. Sometimes all we need is someone to just listen and hear our story. Counselling promotes insight, fosters self-awareness & creates a stronger, more resilient sense of self. This powerful combination can be the kick-start for the changes in your life you wish to make - sometimes even the smallest changes can make a huge difference in your well-being.

I understand that sometimes life feels too difficult . You might be having some trouble in a relationship, feel unhappy or stressed at work, or perhaps something from your past is affecting your life today. Whatever it is, I provide a safe, warm place in which you can talk things through with me in confidence and where you will be listened to with compassion, understanding and without judgement. I believe in the power of relationship: building a relationship with you where trust and acceptance facilitate open communication about the things that are troubling you. I offer face to face, video, online (IM) and telephone counselling.

Welcome. There are times when something is troubling you and you are unable to think about and work through those issues on your own. It is never easy to ask for help and perhaps you have been struggling with issues and painful feelings for a while. I can provide a professional and safe environment in which you can speak openly and confidentially about whatever is on your mind. I am trained to listen to you in a way that can help you recognise the source of your present difficulties, which may be rooted in the past. This process can offer the possibility of long lasting change.

Are you feeling anxious, overwhelmed or worried? Perhaps your mood has been low for a while and you can't shift that feeling. Has something happened recently, or in the past that's affecting how things are for you today? Sometimes there may be a sense that life is lacking in meaning and direction. Maybe you want to make some changes but feel stuck in negative and destructive patterns of behaviour?

When anxious thoughts and depressive feelings get too much, we can lose sight of ourselves. I aim to meet you where you are and look together at what’s happening for you, and perhaps make changes based on what you find.

Do you constantly feel anxious and frustrated with yourself ? Do you keep repeating the same behaviour patterns ? There is a reason for this. I have helped many clients to work through traumatic life experiences. You can start again with a new self confidence that comes from a place of love rather than hate for who you are. Things do not have to stay the same. You can change how you feel about yourself and learn to accept yourself, even the bits you don't like ! You can learn to regulate your feelings and work with them rather than being afraid and controlled by them.

We’re all unique, yet we share some challenges in life. Stress, trauma, loss and fear are just a few that can knock us off course. I see therapy as a way not only of getting you back on track, fast, but helping you to fulfil your potential. When the difficulties of life leave you feeling overwhelmed and unable to cope, I can help you to find the first steps to recovery. No one therapy can work for all, so my approach is to build on what works for you, drawing on therapeutic disciplines that best fit your presentation and personality.

I wonder if you are looking to find out why things are not going well at the moment? Maybe you have experienced a personal loss or often feel low and tearful? Perhaps a friend or loved one has suggested you could talk to someone about feeling low? I can offer a space for you to explore issues and allow time to heal. There may be parts of your behaviour that confuse you, often leading to you ending up hurt and disappointed. Are there relationship problems that cause disress? Sometimes life is overwhelming and it seems that everything is going wrong. It feels impossible to tell people around you how you truly feel. Tell me.

Hi, I am Max ( Qualified Person Centred Therapist) and I know from my own experience, that life can sometimes be a struggle. Events and experiences can leave us feeling lost, isolated or directionless . At such times, reaching out for help can feel very difficult and it is important that your search leads you to someone you feel you can trust . Counselling is an opportunity to explore thoughts and feelings ,which might be affecting many different areas of your life. With careful and empathic listening, I endeavour to support you in finding your own way through what is often too complex and difficult to manage alone.

I work with a wide range of issues, including but not limited to anxiety, depression, insomnia, OCD, addictions, PTSD and phobias. I invite clients to shape and express their goals (these often change or are added to!) and we work together to reach them. Sometimes problems have gone on for years; sometimes they are new and acute. In both cases they can be resolved: people can move towards a life that is fulfilling, meaningful and happy.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
Some of the most common types of mental health providers in GL1 are psychologists, licensed counsellors, therapists, and psychotherapists, all of whom diagnose mental health conditions and provide individualised treatment.

Services offered, education, and credentials vary by type of mental health professional. Each professional in GL1 then may specialise in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counselling, or anxiety. Although many mental health providers are not licensed to prescribe medication, they may coordinate with a provider who can.

Both in-person and online therapy sessions are available from most psychologists.
How to find a specialist?
You can refine your search using the filters on this page. There are several categories you can filter by to find mental health professionals with the experience you are looking for. You may want to filter for CBT Psychologists in GL1, or Child Psychologists in GL1.

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like GL1 psychologists specialising in EMDR.


What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in GL1 specialise in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or counsellor who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

Can I afford counselling?
Yes. Most counsellors offer reasonable rates or will work on a sliding scale basis. Many accept health insurance. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the counsellor.
