If you are in the process of considering counselling/psychotherapy then finding the right therapist is the most important decision to make. Research shows positive therapeutic outcomes are based on the relationship between therapist and client. A good way of assessing if we can work well together is attending a free of charge session; no commitment beyond this, to see if I can help you to identify further what your needs are.
I have 13 years of experience working as a Trauma Therapist. Initially, I worked within the NHS and treated trauma alongside PTSD responses to birth as a midwife and trauma therapist. My private practice developed more broadly, working with anxiety, depression, PTSD, dissociation and relationship stresses in any of life's circumstances. I am happy to work with almost any general life issue. Grief, sexual or other abuse, rape, and lifelong bullying are frequent concerns in therapy, and couple therapy is of particular interest. I use EMDR, Rewind, Trauma-focused CBT in a person-centred approach and work with clients online
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
Hello and and welcome to my page. I am a person-centred psychotherapist based in East Belfast. I specialise in working with Anxiety, Depression, self esteem and relationship difficulties. I am happy to work with most of life’s issues, worries and concerns. I provide a safe and comfortable environment for you to express yourself and be heard.
Have you been struggling with how you feel? Maybe it is anxiety, depression, or a general emptiness in life. Would you like to better understand what is driving these feelings? Do you need the opportunity to be listened to, understood, and heard? We rarely get this in our lives, however counselling can provide this. Counselling creates a safe space where you will be able to share with me what is happening in your life. I can offer you a compassionate, attuned, and sensitive relationship where we can bring awareness to the source of these feelings. Through this awareness, understanding and acceptance, change happens.
At NICBT we believe that every client is individual. We will work together with you in order to help you understand your current difficulties and make steps forward to help you achieve your goals. We operate in Belfast, but our services are available to everyone in Northern Ireland, offering one to one therapy in a confidential and calm setting. NICBT is a self referral service that offers both Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR). These are two of the most effective treatment methods for depressive and anxiety related difficulties.
I welcome adult clients of all backgrounds, and I will work with anyone who sincerely wishes to address their mental health. Through the years I have had the opportunity to support clients living with a wide range of mental health issues and the effects of social problems such as housing, discrimination and homeless individuals living with addictions and challenges to their mental health. I have also worked closely with abuse survivors and those experiencing suicidal thoughts.
I work with individuals (18+) who are seeking to increase their self awareness and to better understand how they think, feel and act. My therapeutic approach can help you take notice of unhelpful relational patterns that feel automatic and cause distress, worry and self doubt. As you progress in therapy, you will feel more able to respond to stressors with greater flexibility and confidence. This frees you up to think and act in a manner that serves your needs better and helps you achieve the sustainable balance you seek.
I welcome the opportunity to assist you in any way I can and this help would usually come in the form of an initial face to face consultation in comfortable, spacious, well-equipped, dedicated counselling rooms in Antrim - Ballyclare - Belfast - Larne
I offer safe & confidential talking therapy in a relaxed non-judgemental manner. Working together, I can help you explore new ways of dealing with anxiety, depression, low self esteem, panic attacks or feeling sad.

We work at your pace, by listening I will support you as you begin to make the changes you need and want. I can help you with depression, anxiety, self-esteem, stress trauma and suicidal thoughts.

Always delivered in a caring, non-judgmental empathetic way.
A BA Hons, FdSc Integrative Therapist, trained in Humanistic, Cognitive Behavioural and Psychodynamic approaches to counselling.

I am a qualified integrative counsellor and a registered member of British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. I strive to bring an effective blend of experience, expertise, clarity, concern and action to the counselling process in order to maximise outcomes and provide genuine healing and wholeness to individuals. I have a broad and unique base of experience, counselling youths and adults. I have 28 years counselling experience, 25 years in Africa and 3 years in Belfast. I use Person Centred, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and Psychodynamic approaches.
I am an Intergrative Therapist who has been practicing in both private and community sectors since 2015. I am origianlly from South Australia and Belfast has been my home for 12 years now. I believe that self awreness and happiness are not a finial destination and toxic positivity takes us further from who we are. We can become stuck in what has happened to us (depression) or fear what may happen to us (anxiety). Tabula Rassa means clean slate "Where there is nothing, there is the possibility of everything". That slate exists in the present moment and by exploring what your life means to you, you can create a meaningful life.
