This last year has been uniquely challenging! The pandemic and the lockdowns may have impacted your mental health, wellbeing or self-esteem or highlighted your existing issues. You may be experiencing increased stress or anxiety. Your work or studies may have been more demanding. Your relationships with your partner, family or friends may have suffered or you feel sad, lonely or isolated. Do you feel you want to make sense of things or find a way to manage? Perhaps you realise that you want to make some changes in your life. Counselling is an amazing and beneficial process. I hope that I can support and be with you on this journey.

Coming to counselling is an adventure! It can be immense fun and incredibly inspirational. It can also be hard and will certainly make you take a good look at yourself! If you want to make changes in your life then counselling is one of the most effective ways to do it... and I will help you along the way, walking alongside you, giving you support. It is a great privilege for me - and I deeply value the vulnerable person (within all of us) that counselling helps to find the courage to reveal. I work with kindness, warmth and respect, and our relationship will become strong - yet I will challenge you - but in a caring and gentle way.

I work with individuals, couples, families, children, young people on short and long-term contracts in Canterbury and Waltham.

Given the latest government advice all sessions will be offered online. I have ten years of experience of working in this way and I am happy to give you guidance to set this up. You will need an internet connection (preferably high speed), a headset and microphone. I can also offer telephone sessions but face to face via an online platform is preferable. Psychotherapy is about being listened to and seen in a particular way. There is nowhere else in life that offers a time and space to focus on your 'self' - your body and your mind. My Kent practice is in the village of Bridge near Canterbury and is easy to reach.

Too many people still think they need to "suffer in silence". There's a strongly-held belief, especially among men, that it's not OK to talk about emotions, about problems in relationships, or about those moments when we feel overwhelmed. I've worked with many clients who come to counselling as a last resort, not really believing it can help them. But thousands of people out there have found that talking does make a difference. If you've been wondering whether it could make a difference for you, contact me for an introductory appointment, to see whether counselling is right for you.

If your everyday life and general wellbeing are being affected by how you’re feeling, it is a good time to get some help. My name is Selina Pryor and I work as a school counsellor with young people and adults three days a week. In my private practice I offer individual counselling for children, young people and adults. Counselling can offer the space and time needed to work through experiences and issues, it is an opportunity to be heard and to feel understood. It can help in building better self-awareness, relationships and overall quality of life. Choosing a counsellor that feels like the right person is really important.

I don't have a typical client. Everyone is unique and complex and if you have found yourself drawn to the idea of counselling I will do my best to build a trusting relationship, offering a safe, non judgemental space and ring-fenced time just for you to talk about the issues you want to bring. I work with adults both short and long term to strive to help you reach the goal you had in mind from it. I have found these reasons can be very diverse, from dealing with past or present events, fears, traumas, anxieties, grief. My aim is to help you get a deeper understanding of yourself and help you bring about the changes you want to see.

Psychotherapy is a talking therapy to work through issues causing you distress in your life. Perhaps your difficulties are clear to you. I work with anxiety, depression, panic attacks, bereavement, trauma, abuse and relationship difficulties. Alternatively, it be difficult to identify a particular thing and you feel a general sense of being lost and lacking direction. The therapeutic relationship holds the potential for healing and transformation. Links from your past experiences and how they may affect the way you live in the present can enable change to enable you to move forward making better decisions for yourself.

Self-Harming Counsellors
Self-harm (SH) or deliberate self-harm (DSH) is the deliberate infliction of damage to your own body. It includes cutting, burning, scratching, banging or hitting yourself, interfering with wound healing, and the ingestion of toxic substances or objects. While self injury (SI) can look like suicide, it's not; most people who mutilate themselves do it as a way to regulate mood. People who hurt themselves in this way may be motivated by a need to distract themselves from inner turmoil, or to quickly release anxiety that builds due to an inability to express intense emotions.

If you're looking for help with self-harming in Canterbury or for someone who self harms, or cuts themselves, or bangs or hits themselves, these Canterbury counsellors provide counselling for self harming in Canterbury. They include counsellors, who understand self harming in Canterbury, psychologists and therapists. They can provide self harming counselling in Canterbury or treatment for self harming.
