Investing in yourself can sometimes feel hard to do, you can always convince yourself that other things or people are more worthy but investing in counselling will be the greatest gift you can give yourself and can change your life. Counselling can be accessed for a number of reasons, something really specific may have happened or you might just have feelings you want to understand more, or behaviours you want to change. Whatever it is, we can explore things together so you can understand yourself better and put steps in place so you can live a more positive, happy and fulfilling life.

Hello, I'm Sammy, are you browsing this website because you feel in need of some support? Do you feel overwhelmed by emotions; frustration, anger, loneliness, anxiety, sadness, feel ‘stuck’, or perhaps you don’t know what is wrong but that something needs to change? In times such as these counselling can help. Counselling is, I believe, essentially a conversation between two people where you feel truly listened to, understood and without worry of interruption, judgement or criticism. A conversation which, at times, can be difficult but can lead to a deeper understanding of yourself and your situation.

I have been practicing for many years. I have experience of working with adults, children and families; counselling a variety of issues. I adapt and adjust my sessions to ensure you the client get what you want and need from each counselling session. I will work with you to explore and understand your fears and distress, encouraging you to move forward at your pace.
I offer professional, counselling experience in which you are able to explore your issues in a safe warm environment. Hourly sessions are offered from 4pm - 8pm Monday - Friday and Saturday mornings. I personally believe many people will benefit from counselling by helping individuals to understand their difficult experiences, along side the feelings and emotions attached to it. This process can be empowering, by enabling the client to work towards changing their lives to become more fulfilled. It takes great courage and strength to accept help with mental and emotional well-being, to work collaboratively.

Hi, I’m Lucy. I am a warm and open-minded person who understands that we all go through challenging periods in life when things feel overwhelming. Sometimes life can be hard; complicated, confusing and painful. You may be feeling stuck or struggling with something on your own and I appreciate that this can feel like a very lonely and isolating experience. I am here to listen and support you. I offer a safe, non-judgemental and confidential space for you to explore any difficulties you might be facing.
I work mainly from a Cognitive Behavioural Approach and also have trained and gained experience utilising hypnotherapy, person centred, transactional analysis, solution focused and NLP approaches. Initial experience working in the field of domestic abuse included working with complex co-existing issues. I have also gained experience with dependency issues and duel diagnosis. I volunteered with the Liverpool Hearing Voices Group for three years, this has allowed me to gain invaluable experience working with more challenging Mental Health and Emotional issues.

I have over 30 years experience in supporting people with ADHD and High Functioning Autism. I share techniques to improve executive functioning, help set goals, prioritize, develop self awareness, unlock potential, stop underachieving. Understanding how developmental trauma (CPTSD) impacts on the nervous system and current relationships is vital and developing ways to dialogue, to listen to others, to feel heard is important. As a person-centred therapist I welcome a deep personal engagement and human connection and create a safe respectful space for healing to help you face life, become more confident and be who you really are.

We all experience low mood and anxiety at times in our lives. Sometimes this can feel difficult to manage and psychological therapy can help.

What’s the difference between a psychologist, a therapist, and a counsellor?
Therapists, psychologists, and counsellors are all licensed mental health professionals. In many countries, psychologists have earned a doctoral degree. The terms “therapist” and “counsellor” are used somewhat interchangeably, but generally therapists offer longer-term, mental health care, while counsellors offer shorter-term care that may focus on one domain, such as marriage, career, or academic challenges.
What type of therapist is right for me?
Clients should consider factors such as insurance coverage and their primary reason(s) for seeking therapy to determine the type of professional best suited to their needs. Someone struggling with mental health challenges such as depression or anxiety, for example, may wish to seek out a clinical psychologist or therapist, while someone navigating career obstacles or marital upheaval may benefit from seeing a counsellor who can offer short-term, targeted support.
Is everyone in the Psychology Today Therapy Directory a licensed therapist?
The Psychology Today directory lists providers who offer legitimate mental health services to the public, including psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and counselors. Many have been licensed by the country where they practice; providers whose license or primary credential has been verified by Psychology Today are signified by a “Verified” symbol. Some clinicians or organizations provide services for which their state or country does not offer licenses, such as pastoral counselling. They may be selectively included without the “Verified” seal.
What type of therapy is right for me?
The type of therapy best suited to a particular individual depends on several factors, including their primary reason for seeking therapy, their preferred timeline (some therapy types last for a set number of sessions, while others are open-ended), and their personality and preferences—some may prefer a more structured approach. For many individuals, multiple types of therapy could provide a good fit.
Is online therapy cheaper than in-person therapy?
Many therapists charge the same amount for online therapy as they do for in-person therapy—though clients may still find this cost-effective if it cuts down on their transportation costs. Health insurance plans often offer equivalent coverage for online and in-person therapy; indeed, in many places, they are legally required to do so. Text-based or on-demand therapy apps may be cheaper than traditional one-on-one psychotherapy; however, the practice may be less effective and is not likely to be covered by insurance.
