Be You Counselling
Counsellor, MNCPS Prof Accred
My name is Samantha, I offer professional counselling to you at those times of difficulty. Are you feeling low or stressed, anger, guilt, anxiety, depression or panic attacks? Do you feel numb or like you have switched off? You may not understand why you feel the way you do. As your counsellor I will listen closely to you and pick up on your feelings, thoughts and emotions. I will work with you to see the world from your perspective and offer insights that will help us both explore the issue(s) you want to work through. This will be done at a pace that is comfortable for you.
Transitions Counselling & Consultancy
Psychotherapist, MBACP Accred
Sometimes during our lives we can experience anxiety, stress and depression. Maybe life has become difficult and we can’t cope, or have lost our direction? I work with individuals, offer couples counselling, and support people experiencing anxiety, depression and stress. In addition I also offer Anger Management support. You Need Not Struggle. I have counselled and support clients with a variety of life’s problems, from specific concerns to issues where the client is less sure as to the cause of their unhappiness. I share my time currently between Adult Mental Health Day
Hi my name is Ruth, I'm a qualified counsellor I work in private practice. People come to counselling for many reasons, struggling to make sense of the world and how they fit in it. Relationship breakdowns, addictive behaviours that are causing you a problem. You may have reached a point in your life where you feel low, no motivation and a real sadness. A recent loss or an overwhelming anxiety. Whatever it is I would like to support you and together find your own answers and maybe a new perspective. This is an opportunity to gain a greater self awareness, and gain some maybe much needed peace.
Counsellor, MNCPS Accred
Perhaps you grew up in an environment where your opinions and voice didn’t matter. Maybe you find yourself just going through the motions every day, wondering what the point is, or engaging in behaviours that don’t fit with your values and aren’t making you any happier. Asking yourself, “Why am I like this?” Perhaps you find yourself in the same patterns or relationships that don’t serve you and feel like you’re struggling to maintain a façade for the benefit of everyone but you. That feels exhausting.

What’s the difference between a psychologist, a therapist, and a counsellor?
Therapists, psychologists, and counsellors are all licensed mental health professionals. In many countries, psychologists have earned a doctoral degree. The terms “therapist” and “counsellor” are used somewhat interchangeably, but generally therapists offer longer-term, mental health care, while counsellors offer shorter-term care that may focus on one domain, such as marriage, career, or academic challenges.
What type of therapist is right for me?
Clients should consider factors such as insurance coverage and their primary reason(s) for seeking therapy to determine the type of professional best suited to their needs. Someone struggling with mental health challenges such as depression or anxiety, for example, may wish to seek out a clinical psychologist or therapist, while someone navigating career obstacles or marital upheaval may benefit from seeing a counsellor who can offer short-term, targeted support.
Is everyone in the Psychology Today Therapy Directory a licensed therapist?
The Psychology Today directory lists providers who offer legitimate mental health services to the public, including psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and counselors. Many have been licensed by the country where they practice; providers whose license or primary credential has been verified by Psychology Today are signified by a “Verified” symbol. Some clinicians or organizations provide services for which their state or country does not offer licenses, such as pastoral counselling. They may be selectively included without the “Verified” seal.
What type of therapy is right for me?
The type of therapy best suited to a particular individual depends on several factors, including their primary reason for seeking therapy, their preferred timeline (some therapy types last for a set number of sessions, while others are open-ended), and their personality and preferences—some may prefer a more structured approach. For many individuals, multiple types of therapy could provide a good fit.
Is online therapy cheaper than in-person therapy?
Many therapists charge the same amount for online therapy as they do for in-person therapy—though clients may still find this cost-effective if it cuts down on their transportation costs. Health insurance plans often offer equivalent coverage for online and in-person therapy; indeed, in many places, they are legally required to do so. Text-based or on-demand therapy apps may be cheaper than traditional one-on-one psychotherapy; however, the practice may be less effective and is not likely to be covered by insurance.
