Hello Thank you for visiting my profile. My name is Victoria, I am a qualified and registered Psychotherapist. My registrations are with British association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists, I’m also on the register for British Society of Psychologists. I am an experienced therapist working with children, teenagers, adults and family’s with a range of difficulties. I provide a safe non-judgemental space to work together through whatever issues my clients bring. My work is intergrative and adapted to the clients individual needs.
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.
I am an experienced and professional Counsellor and Psychotherapist with a first class honors degree from Dublin Business School and full accreditation with the Irish Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (IACP). I have worked as a Psychotherapist both home and abroad, and have had the pleasure of supporting clients from all over the world both in person and through online therapy. There are no rules as to what you can bring to a therapy session but some common issues include anxiety, stress, depression, bereavement, sexuality, family dynamics, health problems, relationship issues, addiction, abuse, and trauma.
I am a BABCP accredited Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist trained in providing psychological assessments and tailored interventions for children, adolescents and adults. CBT helps to provide clients with a deeper understanding of difficult emotions which can be overwhelming and impact on day to day life. This is achieved by collaboratively exploring life events, patterns of thinking and examining behaviours which may intensify unwanted feelings. By learning to challenge unhelpful thinking and behaving, clients can begin to achieve their therapeutic goals and develop an understanding of how to address future difficulties.
Have you been feeling anxious or depressed? Perhaps you have suffered a loss - a relationship, a bereavement, a job? Are events from the past still haunting you? Maybe you are not really sure why you are feeling so low? As an experienced counsellor, I can help you to explore your thoughts and feelings, manage your symptoms and decide what changes you want to make to your life. It is often difficult to talk to friends and family about our problems due to embarrassment or fear of being a burden. As a qualified counsellor, I have been trained to listen and support you through your darkest moments.
I offer long and short term therapy with a specialism in working with members of the LGBTQ community. I have a strong belief that people should be able to define life on their own terms and find their own meaning. I am interested in helping clients examine what can get in the way of that, whether it is personal history, external pressures, feelings of shame, or expectations of what is and isn’t normal. I work with the person rather than with any diagnosis believing that we all are doing the best we can within the environment and resources available and I want to help you discover what is important to you.
Due to the recent COVID 19 pandemic all sessions will now be provided via telephone or video call. As a result of this all sessions are now offered at the reduced rate of £35 to help support you through this difficult time.
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.
Are you looking for effective therapy that is pragmatic, realistic and down to earth? I am an integrative therapist offering a warm and compassionate approach that is tailored to your individual needs. I will work collaboratively with you to resolve the inevitable struggles that are part of life. If you feel you are ready to take those first tentative steps to alleviate your distress and live a richer and more meaningful life then please call me for a free/no obligation telephone consultation.

Hi, my name is Peter Clarke. Sometimes we just need to talk to someone outside of our circle. Someone who will listen to us and not advise us. Someone who will offer empathy and acceptance, not judgment and condemnation. In short, sometimes we need to speak to someone who will listen to us, and help us become the person we wish to be. This is the person i am to my clients.
A BA Hons, FdSc Integrative Therapist, trained in Humanistic, Cognitive Behavioural and Psychodynamic approaches to counselling.

I believe a holistic approach to mental health and well-being can enable people help themselves and connect to oneself through heightened mind, body and spirit awareness.
