My work has covered a diverse set of peoples issues, ranging from trauma, bereavement and addiction , to relationship issues or any other aspects of life which may have become a burden.
As a therapist, I firmly believe that each of us holds the answers to our own issues within. My role here is to help you recognise these and support you in working through them. I will aim to create a trusting counselling relationship throughout our sessions, where you can feel able to express your feelings in an empathic and accepting environment. Through this collaboration, our aim would be for you to gain a deeper understanding of yourself, in turn facilitating the change you are aspiring to achieve.

Many people struggle with addiction , and unhelpful thinking styles, so you are not alone, But not everyone seeks help.
Do you feel worried that your use of substances is starting to get out of control and is causing problems in your life? Or are you worried that you will not be able to cope without them, even though you would like to cut back or stop?. Do you feel locked into thinking styles which are starting to dominate your life such as anxiety or depression and don't know what to do? Imagine if you could regain control of your life and situation so you felt happier, less anxious, and were no longer dependant or worried about you substance use, what would that feel like? Recovery is possible but sometimes we just need a bit of help to get there

I can help in areas such as addiction ,anxiety, depression, eating disorders, OCD, panic attack, personality disorder, PTDS, and self-esteem.
Bu Therapy works with YOU. You are, after all, the expert with what is going on in your life today. Together we will work on areas that might be affecting your life and what you would like to change. CBT therapy looks at the present rather than the past and identifies negative or maladaptive thinking styles that make you see things differently and out of focus. I will work with you in a collaborative manner so we can correct this “blurred view” of life and bring clarity, focus, and direction back into your life, and “together we can come out of the darkness and into the light".

Hi, I’m Darren. As a Counselling Psychologist specialising in psychedelic therapy, I can help you to use psychedelics safely and effectively to break old patterns and feel happier, less anxious, and have better relationships because you deserve a treatment that works much faster than traditional talking therapies. Have you tried talking therapies but found they only kind of worked? Well, me too, and research has proven that psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy is much faster and more effective at treating anxiety, depression, addiction , and trauma. Psychedelics are also useful tools for spiritual exploration and personal development.

Hi, I'm Lilian, I'm a registered member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy, and I specialise in working with problematic drug & alcohol use, and sex addiction (including porn use). There are many reasons that we use substances or behaviours to change the way we feel and deal with painful emotions. Perhaps you once felt in control and now it feels like substances or behaviours are in control of you. You may be experiencing problems in your relationships, work, health and finances and feel overwhelmed. Understanding your relationship with substances, sex or porn is key to resolving the struggle.

My areas of special interest include, meditation, mindfulness, creative writing, and professional interest include, relationship difficulties, anxiety, depression, loss and grief, identity, addiction and trauma.
Making the decision to start therapy is a courageous one. And if you are thinking about therapy you already recognise the need for someone to talk to about the difficulties you are experiencing. It can be challenging, but therapy can help you make sense of your life, be transformative and help you better understand your relationship with yourself and others.

These skills allow a lot of flexibility for clients hoping for a more direct hands-on approach to anxiety and stress, depression, addiction , anger management and life transitions.
Life can often be in a constant state of change and uncertainty. Life can also be a source of connection and growth. Sometimes that means leaning on others to help you navigate difficult times. The journey often begins with simply noticing. Since you are here, now, chances are you already started the journey.

Addiction Counsellors
A person with an addiction uses a substance, or engages in a behavior, for which the rewarding effects provide a compelling incentive to repeat the activity, despite detrimental consequences. Addiction may involve the use of substances such as alcohol, inhalants, opioids, cocaine, and nicotine, or behaviors such as gambling.
