Hello. I'm Penny and I offer short or long-term therapy with an integrative approach. Is there something that is troubling you? Something you’d like to talk through, but with someone outside of family or friends? Perhaps you’re asking yourself some questions about who you are, what is going on in your life, or about the relationships you have? Maybe your feelings seem overwhelming, or you can’t identify what emotions you’re experiencing? Whatever issue you’d like to bring to counselling it is my hope that you will find some clarity and peace

My typical client seeks to learn how to understand and manage his/her anxiety, depression, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, trauma or psychosexual issues. NHS referrals usually seek help for health anxiety, depression, anger and chronic pain management. My goal as a therapist is to firstly understand specific beliefs and attitudes the client struggles with, secondly to provide guidance with a clear formulation of their issues and realistic goals and thirdly to teach them how they can employ simple, but effective therapeutic tools to challenge and eventually renovate their unhealthy beliefs into more flexible and healthy ones.

I believe that at times, we all struggle with life difficulties and need someone who understand and sees us. There can be huge barriers to fairness in our society and this, along with the pressures of relationships, social media, work and expectations of others, can reduce our ability to cope alone. I believe that counselling can play a key role in helping us navigate these difficulties and face the future with a little more optimism.

Life can feel difficult, and we might not even know why. It can be helpful to work through our feelings in a safe, confidential, and supportive therapeutic relationship. I believe the answers are in us as individuals, and that we also benefit from being alongside someone as we explore our thoughts and feelings, and get a deeper understanding of ourselves.

I am a licensed, registered Counsellor with the BACP and have been practicing online since the beginning of lockdown. Previous to that I worked with clients face to face. Having worked with clients who have various different issues including relationship problems, low self esteem, trouble in dealing with emotions, fear of rejection, and more. I have the experience in lots of different issues but realise that everyone is an individual and deals with things in different ways so there is no 'one size fits all' . You are the expert on you, so I shall sit with you and support you in your quest to find a solution.

Counselling sessions provide you with the time to share whatever is troubling you, and space to explore your emotions. The process can lead to a better understanding of your life experiences and their impact on your emotional and mental well-being.

Hi. My name is Michelle and I am a registered counsellor specialising in working with children and young people. I also work with many adults. I have a practice in central Reading and work online where appropriate. I am passionate about building resilience and self-esteem, promoting confidence and emotional wellbeing. I recognise that for young people, adolescence can be a scary time with many changes both emotionally and physically. The opportunity to talk to someone outside of the family unit where they can be heard and valued can be invaluable.

If you struggle to fall asleep, can't stay asleep, wake up too early or wake up and do not feel refreshed in the morning, then I can help you. I also help parents with children who do not sleep through the night or who struggle to get to sleep with anxiety. I studied insomnia at the University of Oxford and started helping people with their sleeping problems at Trouble Sleeping in 2006. I take a thorough medical and sleep history to discover why you aren't sleeping well, and then I suggest specific tailored cognitive and behavioural changes to help you to overcome your sleep issues.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, psychologist, or counsellor, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counsellor in RG1?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

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 RG1 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.
