My background is providing counselling to LGBTQ & questioning people in a community charity setting, and I know of the barriers people can face when trying to access help for mental health.
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.

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 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

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.

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.

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.

If you’re seeking a calm, friendly environment in which to address issues which are distressing or frustrating you and you need someone to offer a warm welcome and show sincere interest in your needs I can provide this space for you and would love to be the person to support you. I’ve worked with many people helping them find solutions to their problems and relief from emotional stress. Counselling provides a place for your voice to be heard, your feelings expressed and new ways of thinking and living to be explored. There can be moments of pain and tears but also moments of great release and insight and even laughter and joy.

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.

Summoning the courage to talk to a professional about what is distressing us can be the most difficult, but also the most powerful step towards improving our wellbeing and our lives to a standard that we are more satisfied with and that we deserve. I aim to create a space where the client feels safe, whilst also communicating trust, compassion and understanding so that I may understand what their current experience is truly like for them. I integrate various schools and models of therapy, which I have assessed, are the best intervention for a client in each session and closely monitor their reaction to these.

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.
