After my first assessment I will work closely with my client to decide on the best form of therapy for them and decide the way forward together. I have had a passion for helping others my entire life and began counselling in 2010. My own past has only served to deepen my desire to help as I can deeply empathise with those who need it most. I believe that no one should suffer in silence and I work hard to try and guide clients to their own answers. When someone feels lost they then become confused and this is a very lonely place to be. I base my work on clearing the mist and helping clients find the answers.

Hello and welcome, I see you made the first, very important step. You came to realisation you have a problem and that you need professional support. I can help you to specify, name, give a meaning and assist you in your way to recovery of your mental balance while keeping you on the course you chose.I strongly believe that Clients know themselves the best, therefore are the experts of the “knowledge of themselves”; however sometimes they need support to uncover or unblock the inner resources. I encourage taking responsibility for yourself, “can do” attitude to stimulate your mental healing and growth process.

The disabling experiences of ADHD are very real. Living with this distinctive brain can be a real challenge in a world that doesn't suit us very well. As real as the difficulties are, I don't think our brains are broken. We have a wide range of distinctive strengths beyond our diagnosis. I can help you understand your strengths, to become your own best guide in your own life. If you'd like to arrange a coaching session with me, contact me, and I will get back to you as soon as possible.

I am a qualified integrative counsellor offering a confidential and understanding service for adults, children and young people who are facing a range of challenges and emotional difficulties. There are many reasons why an individual seeks counselling, and I understand that it can feel like a big decision where you may feel nervous, uncertain or vulnerable. My first step is to offer you a safe, non-judgemental space, where you will feel able to explore your own thoughts and feelings. This offers you space to understand the underlying feelings that can make you feel low, stuck, empty or overwhelmed.

That feeling that follows you from when you get up in the morning, and never leaves. Which gradually grew from a passing "uncomfortable" feeling to an overwhelming sense of dread, anxiousness, sadness, tearfulness, or even anger. This is where I was in 2008, until I finally found the courage to go to my GP, and seek support from a counsellor. Furthermore this is what inspired me to become a mental health counsellor. Its important for you to understand that you are never alone, no matter how much it feels that way. Your emotional well-being is the most crucial part of you, and you can get through this.

I believe it is impossible to "have the ideal Client", as my experience has shown me we really don't know where the story is going until you build up the connection and confidence between you and your client. I always focus on making the clients feel that they are in a safe place and that this place is for them. It is also important that the client and I are open and honest with each other, in order to avoid any misunderstanding between you and the client with regards to their needs and the best course of therapy that is required. I have found that the more ownership and input the client has during the sessions the better outcome,

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
Some of the most common types of mental health providers in Belfast 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 Belfast 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 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.
