We all experience emotional pain; as an infant, a child, a teenager , a parent and an adult. Whether it’s in response to life events (e.g. loss, trauma, moves), transitions (e.g. to adolescents, as a parent, retirement), adjustment to ill health (e.g. cancer, chronic illness, injury) or life in general (e.g. long term low mood or anxiety). Accepting that we need help and support can be hard and daunting. Getting the right help is important and can teach you how to live a fulfilling life.

Sometimes we experience changes or traumas that leave us struggling with the pressures of life, relationships, work, or studies. This can affect our self-esteem, our sense of identity, and our ability to cope. This can become overwhelming and may lead us to unhelpful or harmful thoughts and behaviours. With help, we can overcome our difficulties and learn to manage our emotions more effectively. With compassion, empathy, respect, and a safe space, we feel heard, considered, and valued. By understanding our thoughts and behaviours we can feel empowered to make positive changes that can lead us to fuller and more enjoyable lives.

Thank you for visiting my profile. You may be looking for help with a specific issue, looking for more purpose or clarity in life, more understanding about yourself or maybe you might be confused. Sometimes choosing a therapist can feel overwhelming and despite the qualifications and experience it can be more about finding the right fit between yourself and your therapist.

Welcome! My name is Keeley and I’m here to support you and your child. Let me help you bring some harmony back to your family. Being a parent or a carer presents a whole range of challenges, and there are times when you may feel that you need the support of a professional to help your child to make sense of a difficult or complex experience, or to understand why they are behaving in a particular way. Everyone’s needs will be different, but whatever needs to be done to support you and your child you will always be at the heart of my work. The chance to be heard and to see concerns in a new light can make all the difference.

I am a qualified Cognitive Behavioural Therapist with a background in education and in yoga/fitness teaching. Clients bring a wide variety of issues to cognitive behavioural therapy sessions, such as anxiety, depression, panic -attacks and low self-esteem, for example, and many of their goals include, learning, how to relax, breathe properly, meditate, exercise and find self-compassion. Therefore, by collaborating together and combining some of my skills with each client's goals, positive change happens. I have experience with adults, young people and children, as I counsel within school. My approach is warm, welcoming, and empathic

Pain, manifests in many varied ‘illnesses’. Whether they be physical or Psychological. It could be Arthritis, ADHD, Addictions, Migraines, or Mental Ill Health. The root cause is always a something in our environments, whether in childhood or adulthood. The Medical Institutions treat only the symptoms of this pain, not the causes. Pharmacotherapy can be beneficial in the short term, to alleviate intense physical ir psychic pain, but Western Medicine, has demonstrably failed, to address the causes and manifestations, of chronic illness: physical or psychological. I offer an initial Assessment of causes and self-care coping mechanisms

Maybe you just feel disconnected or are experiencing difficulties that are hard to put into words. Or maybe you feel like you don't know where to start. Whatever your reason for seeking support, I aim to provide a space where you feel comfortable to explore what is troubling you.

As an experienced Cognitive Behavioural Therapist, I work collaboratively with my clients to achieve their goals. These goals may be around managing mental health conditions such as anxiety or depression or improving confidence or self esteem, working through relationship problems and major life changes or simply having the time and space to explore thoughts and feelings in a safe, confidential and non judgemental space. CBT aims to identify unhelpful thinking patterns linked to past experiences that influence how we feel and how we behave and make sustainable changes, resulting in improved decision making and wellbeing.

Teen Counsellors

What does therapy for teenagers look like?

When a therapist works with a teenager, the pair will talk about what the teen is struggling with and explore solutions, which may involve interpersonal skills, coping strategies, medication, or lifestyle changes related to sleep, diet, and exercise. Different therapists employ different modalities, but most involve a combination of conversation and skill building.

How long does therapy for teenagers generally take to work?

There’s variability in teenagers’ experiences and challenges; some may begin to improve from therapy within a few weeks while others may take several months or longer. Teens can discuss their progress with their therapist periodically to assess how they’re improving and any changes to the treatment plan that could potentially accelerate that progress.

How do you encourage a teenager to go to therapy?

It’s helpful to express your concern and love while framing therapy as an opportunity to explore a tool that could help improve their life; just like they practice baseball or dance, now they can practice their emotional skills. Give your teen control over the process where you can—maybe by weighing in on choice of therapist and signaling that therapy involves confidentiality, so a parent need not know all that is discussed in sessions.

How do you prepare teens for therapy?

You can prepare your teenager for therapy by describing what the process will look like and setting expectations for timeline, if requested. You can explain that the first session may begin with an assessment phase, that they can describe their experiences but that the therapist will ask questions too, and that it may take time to feel comfortable opening up. Ask how they’re feeling about the process and answer any questions calmly and supportively.
