Most people feel overwhelmed and 'burned out' at some point in their life. Often we know what the problem is, it might be work related, personal or a combination of things. Maybe, it is less clear, a general awareness of feeling low and unhappy much of the time without really knowing why. It can be invaluable to have somewhere private and confidential to talk, to be able to think more clearly about what isn't working, the reasons why and how things could be different going forward.

Why counselling? Counselling can help with all sorts of different issues. It can help with positive events such as choosing a direction in life or reaching your full potential. There may be things from your past that you would like to tackle or there may be things in the present that you want to try and change. Perhaps you are experiencing significant events in your life such as getting married and starting a family, leaving home for the first time or coming to terms with the death of a loved one. ​ ​ ​Maybe you are feeling anxious or stressed, there are many, many reasons why we might need a bit of support .

Feeling sad, disconnected from the world and struggling with unhelpful behaviours can mean we feel anxious and low. This often is a result of conflict with the relationships around us either at work or at homer Marriage or partnerships, parents, friendships, colleagues or illness where things are not going well can make us feel vulnerable, unsafe and unable to cope. Clients tend to be the best expert on their experience and often understand what's concerning them but are stuck and unable to find a way through. It takes courage to face into some of our issues but recognising we have them is the hardest part.

I work with individuals who are struggling with all kinds of issues, such as depression, anxiety and stress, questions of identity, personality problems, relationship issues, bereavement, addictions, abuse, anger management and many other difficulties. Sometimes problems can be difficult to articulate, like feeling lost, confused, or like something just isn’t right. Often we can face problems that feel so ingrained that we might feel there can’t be a solution. We might feel ‘it’s just who I am’.

I am a Doctor in Counselling Psychology, with over 15 years experience of working as a therapist. The decision to start therapy is not always an easy one, and everybody has a different reason for wanting to attend therapy. It may be recent circumstances which have caused you upset, stress or discomfort, or life long issues which you now feel you would like to address. It may be that you are feeling uncertain, or stuck, and not entirely sure why. Exploration of these issues together with a therapist could help you develop an understanding and move forward in life.

I understand that looking for a counsellor can feel overwhelming especially at a time when you might be experiencing emotional pain, overloaded or stuck. This is why it's important to find someone with whom you feel connected, who will offer you a safe space in which to explore the events or issues which are causing you difficulties. I work with people who have experienced abuse or relationship difficulties, people who are struggling to find their own worth or feel directionless and people who feel anxious or depressed. Reaching out for support without fear of judgement can be an important step towards feeling empowered to grow.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
Some of the most common types of mental health providers in HG4 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 HG4 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 HG4, or Child Psychologists in HG4.

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like HG4 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 HG4 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.
