I have worked in mental health as a mental health nurse for many years, and I have over 30 years' experience working for the NHS and I am fully accredited by BABCP to provide Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. I take an integrative-based approach towards CBT. This means I work collaboratively with clients to help them identify their negative behaviours and patterns. Together, we shall develop methods to aid change. There is no single approach that works for everyone, but I do emphasise the importance of creating a safe place to share your fears and concerns. I also place great importance on the individual at the centre of the therapy.

Communicating and staying connected can feel impossible during difficult times. When they work well, our closest relationships strengthen us and bring us joy; when they go wrong, it can be hard to understand the how and the why and that it might be necessary to seek professional support. Sexual problems may arise from psychological or emotional reasons. Sometimes sexual problems reflect relationship difficulties and sometimes sexual difficulties cause relationship problems. In such cases sex therapy combined with relationship counselling is the best way forward.

You're probably considering whether I am a good fit for you - a good question. The centrality of our relationship is paramount for a good outcome in order to tackle your difficulties whether they be related to your feelings (e.g. anxiety, sadness, anger) or related to your relationships (e.g. avoidance, passivity, compliance). It is likely you have some ideas about how you've got here - we will explore these and develop a curiosity about them; how you have survived and coped but yet what is stopping you from thriving and living the life you want. Therapy should be transformative and centred upon your aims.

Entering into counselling can feel like a big step, and you may understandably be concerned about what the process involves. Simply put, counselling allows you to explore your thoughts and feelings in a safe, non-judgemental space, giving you the opportunity to see your 'problems' more clearly. If you are feeling overwhelmed and anxious, are struggling with depression, your interpersonal relationships, or perhaps feel that your life is at a crossroads and you don't know where to turn next, counselling can help.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
Some of the most common types of mental health providers in LS1 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 LS1 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 LS1, or Child Psychologists in LS1.

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like LS1 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 LS1 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.
