"Art Therapy is available for both children and adults. It is a form of psychotherapy that is known to be a gentle way of treating trauma and various emotional struggles. We sometimes find that words cannot express how we feel, especially when we are overwhelmed by strong emotions. Since Art Therapy does not need to solely rely on spoken language, it can access often inaccessible places, so that you can process your thoughts and feelings in a different way. Children who do not have the vocabulary to talk about difficult things can greatly benefit from Art Therapy as well. Only HCPC registered Art Therapists can practise Art Therapy. "

"Life isn't a straight forward, easy process, it has its roller coaster of ups, downs and roundabouts, how do we maintain our focus on our everyday lives, we attempt to get on with it, but sometimes it can feel like an uphill struggle against the wind and rain. We become overloaded, overwhelmed, stressed and irritable and sometimes our friends, family and colleagues notice our behaviour before we do. When we do realise that we need support, help, courage, whatever you chose to call it then we are half way there, the rest is looking for someone to share our difficulties and pressures with. "

My hope with therapy is to explore the roots of issues, to rediscover our innate resilience, to build self-esteem and to help you meet your goals, your hopes, your wishes. Many people access therapy because they want to feel different, to change the emotions they are experiencing, or for others it may be learning to access those feelings that have perhaps been locked away through trauma.

Online Counsellors
Online counselling is a good solution for people who do not have access to well-qualified clinical professionals in their area or who live remotely or abroad. We also refer to it as Teletherapy, online therapy or skype therapy: in short, it's simply conducting a clinical therapy session using a video or phone as the means of communicating.

It's an excellent solution for those who are immobile or find it more convenient to conduct therapy in the privacy of their own home. Or are agoraphobic (fearful of leaving their home), but still want counselling.

If you're looking for online counselling in Plymouth or for a Plymouth online therapist these professionals provide online therapy, skype therapy and video treatment.

Please discuss with the professional the app you'd like to use e.g. Skype, FaceTime, Facebook Messenger or WhatsApp. Professionals sometimes prefer tailored apps such as Zoom, VSee or Doxy.me.

How can I tell if a counsellor is right for me?
