Has life become a struggle? First comes the initial drink, then you're not able to take control and say enough is enough. After a long week at work, you feel stressed and constantly crave a drink BUT after, you just sit there and ask yourself 'why do I do this' - you just don't know the answer? For years you thought your lifestyle was sustainable but now you realise that it is having an impact on the people around you and you're tired of going round in maddening circles. Ultimately you fear destroying your relationships and losing the love from your, partner, kids, family and friends.

Hello - my name is Sinead and I am a qualified counsellor. There are many reasons that you might feel drawn to try counselling. It can be because something specific has happened in your life, such as the death of a loved one or another major life event. Maybe you are struggling to see a way forward. Perhaps you feel ‘stuck’ or are unable to find meaning in your life. Sometimes talking to a friend about it just isn’t enough or isn’t even an option. In a counselling relationship, you won’t be judged; I won’t tell you what I would do and I won’t tell anybody else what you have told me.

Over the years most of the client issues I have encountered encompass loss and control in some way, shape or form. Many clients feel out of control, and helpless or in complete despair, and would like to be able to clear a pathway for themselves to work out a more manageable way of living with less anxiety. Many clients just want to be listened to, and for some that is a rare luxury as friends and family often have their own agenda. Regular reviews and goal setting to reflect where a client is, in relation to their therapy journey are part of the therapeutic process and help to build trust and structure.

See more therapy options for SS1

How can I tell if a counsellor is right for me?
Counsellors and therapists in SS1 are able to work with a wide range of issues.

For example, you can find CBT Therapists in SS1 who focus on a specific issue, as well as DBT Therapists in SS1 who help clients with new skills to manage their emotions and relationships.

If you're seeking a marriage counsellor in SS1 you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counselling or couples counselling in SS1 and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counselling in SS1 or family therapy in SS1.

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 SS1, or Child Psychologists in SS1. You can also use the filters to see only female psychologists, or gay-allied counsellors

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like SS1 psychologists specialising in anger management, couples counselling, or EMDR.


What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way'. A couples counsellor or a family counsellor may use different techniques depending on the one that works best for you. 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.
