Life can be challenging; navigating relationships and attempting to get our emotional needs met. Sometimes we can have an ongoing feeling of unease or sadness or have specific fears related to facing particular people or situations. We can worry about what other people are thinking about us and what we have said or done. Or we can question who we really are. Often these worries can keep us awake at night, or stop us from doing things we have previously enjoyed or would like to try. We can know in our heart that life could be better but can feel stuck and unable to work out what we need to feel more content and self-accepting.

Psychotherapy is a talking therapy with the aim to support you work through issues causing distress in your life. Perhaps the root of the distress is clear to you and may be causing anxiety, depression, panic attacks or relationship difficulties. Sometimes it is not easy to identify a particular problem and you feel a general sense of being lost and lacking direction as if things just aren't quite right. The therapeutic relationship holds the potential for healing and transformation as we work to make links from past experiences and the present day to day situations potentially enabling you to move forward in a different way.

There's a first time for everything. Most newcomers to counselling & psychotherapy start out feeling a little intimidated by the idea of this rather mysterious process. I aim to demystify what I do - clients often comment on what they describe as a down-to-earth and accessible approach. My aim is ultimately to help you understand yourself and your behaviour. I feel that goal is best achieved by working in a non-threatening, straightforward and inclusive way.

You may be finding life tough, finding it hard to put your finger on what’s causing distress. General feelings of sadness and low self-esteem may be making it difficult to see who you truly are. Your sense of purpose may be ebbing, or indeed gone altogether. Instead, there may be a constant, nagging feeling of wishing things were different. But not knowing what that different looks or feels like. Whether or not it even exists. Do you feel your voice is being smothered by work pressures, or your personal aims are being crushed?

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.

Highly recommended effective therapy: "The speed and accuracy by which Chris was able to work out our personalities and provide genuinely useful insight was, quite frankly, incredible.  This insight, hard as it was to digest, proved to be so profound to me that I was finally able to unpick what had being going on in my relationship.  His ability to sum up the relationship in one stark metaphor was a watershed moment for me.  Through his insight and continued support I have managed to start to discover myself again and to regain my confidence which had been systematically dismantled."  Mr. M, 2019, Canterbury.

These thoughts and feelings can be isolating and, when allowed to, can take over, but by taking these initial steps you’ve already accepted that this is not who or where you want to be; this is not your forever. By seeking professional help you are showing strength of character and a desire to feel happier. Counselling can help you achieve this as it provides a safe place in which you can explore your personal thoughts and feelings in a confidential and supportive environment.

Life doesn't get any easier does it? Juggling work, relationships and family can be stressful and confusing, leaving us feeling emotionally drained. Sometimes the harder we work to please others, the tougher we are on ourselves. This can make us feel less than good enough. Deeper feelings of anxiety, sadness and anger can be painful and scary, so we become very good at burying them until they build up and overwhelm us. If you are experiencing feelings that are hard to manage I can help you.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
Some of the most common types of mental health providers in Canterbury are psychologists, licensed counsellors, therapists, and psychotherapists, all of whom diagnose mental health conditions and provide individualised treatment.

Services offered, education, and credentials vary by type of mental health professional. Each professional in Canterbury then may specialise in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counselling, or anxiety. Although many mental health providers are not licensed to prescribe medication, they may coordinate with a provider who can.

Both in-person and online therapy sessions are available from most psychologists.
How to find a specialist?
You can refine your search using the filters on this page. There are several categories you can filter by to find mental health professionals with the experience you are looking for. You may want to filter for CBT Psychologists in Canterbury, or Child Psychologists in Canterbury.

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like Canterbury psychologists specialising in EMDR.


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 Canterbury 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.
