I am a qualified registered counsellor working in the Belfast and Bangor areas. I provide a comfortable and supportive safe space for you to explore any unresolved issues past or present. Whilst we cannot change difficult events from the past, we can work together to better understand and work through the challenges that you are experiencing in your life. Together we can develop an awareness of patterns of negative behavior and perceptions that may be leaving you feeling anxious or depressed. The symptoms of your distress can show in a physical and psychological way.

Are you currently experiencing symptoms of low mood and/or anxiety. Come and talk to me and together we will explore these issues and work on ways of managing these current difficulties in a positive way. Having worked in the mental health sector for 10 years I have experienced how talking therapy can allow clients to explore their issues that they face on a daily basis and enable them to develop coping strategies which provide positive changes moving forward.

Often we feel we cannot share issues with family or friends, for fear of impacting these relationships or attempts at being rescued, where all we need is to be listened to. Often we are experiencing emotional turmoil, doubt , guilt, fear or sadness to the point we perceive ourselves as carrying the burden alone. This is the opportunity for you to be heard, to explore and consider solutions and new possibilities for the future in a non-judgemental and collaborative therapeutic relationship. We can explore the past, the present or we can explore future plans and/or work on solutions to current problems.

Have you wanted to change things in your life but don't know where to start? Do you have difficulty dealing with your thoughts? Do you feel shame or guilt often? Are you self- critical? I work with people to support and empower them to understand what's going on for them, identifying what may help them to enjoy life again. For some that may be gaining self-confidence, feeling less stressed/anxious/stuck or simply better sleep . Counselling can feel scary but can be the first important step in investing in yourself. I will move at your pace, offering a non-judgemental, calm, kind space for you to explore what's challenging you.

It can be a huge step to decide to talk to a counsellor/psychotherapist about personal issues so it is important to find someone you are comfortable with, who will not judge you but accept you for who you are. I offer office based and/or telephone therapy. In my experience as a therapist I have found that when someone senses that he or she is being listened to at a deep level in an atmosphere of acceptance and empathy, a very powerful and liberating positive momentum can be achieved. Therapy can be a journey. For some it can be a chance to talk about surviving abuse and trauma, providing a platform to gain more control over life

Adults, children and adolescents all need a space to explore and express their experiences, and for some this tends to be more difficult as they struggle to understand what they're feeling, never mind find the words to describe them to someone. People often find that when they voice their experiences, feelings, and worries, and confide in a professional who can offer support and help them make sense of these, they feel heard, understood, and often a little lighter from sharing the weight of these. I aim to help my clients to feel that little bit lighter.

Please check out my website - www.jeanmcminntherapy.co.uk - I believe that it is important for the client to feel secure and able to talk about whatever issues are troubling them. I aim to provide a supportive and responsive environment in which we can make sense of your particular difficulties. Understanding the impact of past experience on the present helps to increase self esteem and allows you to make important positive changes in your life. Counselling can help you to free yourself from limiting self beliefs, so you are free to move on in life and have more fulfilling relationships and satisfaction, health and strength.

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 Belfast, or Child Psychologists in Belfast.

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