My name is Seán, and I a qualified counsellor currently registered with BACP and NCS. As I currently work in the charity sector, I have extensive experience working with a very broad spectrum of clients, of various ethnic and cultural backgrounds, sexualities, and gender expressions. As a result of this, I have sought additional training on many topics, such as domestic violence, the transgender experience in Northern Ireland. Additionally, in my recent education at Ulster University, I undertook some research into social anxiety, giving me a more specialist knowledge of that topic.

Hello, I’m Tim. I’m an integrative counsellor combining person-centred and psychodynamic models. This means I adapt my approach for every client, tailored to their individual needs. I’m passionate about mental wellbeing. We all have mental health and need to look after it, just as we do our physical health. Counselling is one such way of doing so, putting some time aside to concentrate on you and your needs. This kind of therapy provides a confidential, safe and non-judgmental space for you to reflect and explore your thoughts and feelings, address life challenges and improve your wellbeing.

I provide counselling and psychotherapy in Belfast and Online. I believe that people shouldn’t have to deal with their problems on their own. My life’s journey has been far from straight forward and that allows me to examine how the (often) invisible pressures and restrictive boxes/categories of society can stop people expressing themselves in ways that make them feel happy and fulfilled. By combining my counselling training with my life experience, I have created a safe, relaxed and private setting where clients can get to know themselves better and work through their thoughts, feelings and emotions without judgement.

I am one half of the team at Different Therapy named because we are different–distinct, individual, diverse and that is to be celebrated, as are the differences in every client. Difference is welcomed here. I believe that counselling can be a life changing experience given the correct environment & therapeutic relationship; in other words, you & your counsellor need to gel! I started training to be a counsellor because personal therapy changed my life & the relationship I had with my counsellor throughout my therapy journey, I believe, was the key to that. I wanted to be able to pass that life changing experience onto other people

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.
