Hi I’m Samantha, a qualified CBT, EMDR, DBT, Schema Therapy psychotherapist trained to work with adults and children. I am also a Registered Mental Health Nurse with over 16 years of experience working in NHS services and Charitable organisations. My specialties include working with trauma, Complex PTSD and with clients with a Borderline Personality Disorder/ E.U.P.D. I work with children and adults who experience panic attacks, phobias, social anxiety, health anxiety, emetophobia, and depression. Also with children who have experienced bullying. traumatic events, difficult transitions and are avoidant of school.
If you have come to this page you are seeking support. I would like to reassure you that the therapy I offer will be tailored to your or your families needs and will be facilitated in a warm, non-judgmental, confidential manner. As a therapist I believe it is such a privilege and responsibility being allowed into your life enabling you to facilitate change. Following retiring from nursing I have focussed on developing my clinical practice within psychotherapy/counselling studying at many levels. I have gained experience in many areas including trauma, abuse, bereavement, anxiety, depression etc. working with children and adults.
I work extremely well with emotions allowing you to activate and focus on your emotional state and thus helping you to change problematic emotional situations or unwanted self- experiences. In our therapy sessions we can use your emotions as the path in which will direct us to what is important for you. Also, through this knowledge you can find out what you need to do, find out who you are and hopefully become that person. However, the therapeutic work with emotions takes place in your own time, only when you feel ready to explore and express your emotional state.

My name is Vicky and I am a highly empathic and professional psychotherapist. I am psychodynamically trained which means I can help you to explore how you have learnt to relate to the world, to others and how the world relates back to you. We often hold onto past or recent trauma and it shapes how we feel, think and behave, often resulting in unhealthy defences. I can help you to unravel this and be more at peace with the world. I have experience of helping clients living with psychosis, disordered eating, low self-esteem, bereavement, personality disorders, abusive relationships and learning difficulties to name just a few.
I’m an Integrative Counsellor with extensive experience in a wide range of Mental Health Issues and also the Impacts of Abuse for Adults 18+. These include issues such as anxiety, panic, depression, anger, stress, low self-esteem and the lasting impacts of a difficult childhood. If you are feeling stuck or that you have lost your way, I can help you explore what you are feeling by offering you a safe, non-judgemental, and confidential place to explore what's on your mind. I also have experience of working with adults who have experienced abuse whether it be sexual, emotional, physical, or domestic.
I am a Creative Arts/Dramatherapist, registered with the HCPC and accredited by the British Association of Dramatherapists. I have over 16 years’ experience working with children, young people and adults. My background is working with trauma, anxiety and attachment, including therapeutic parenting and strategies using Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy. I have experience in working with hard-to-reach communities facing challenging issues and have trained in working therapeutically on-line. Therefore, I welcome everybody to my sessions.
Coming to therapy can seem like a big step. But in my experience with clients, it is usually the beginning of a liberating time when past and present concerns can be expressed and understood with emotions examined and transmuted. Learning how to accept and navigate difficult life situations can be really beneficial, as you discover what choices are available to you in how to handle difficult emotions and thought patterns. Many of our core beliefs were formed when we were young and not fully conscious of the choices we were making about our world. Therapy gives you the chance to look at yourself and your issues in new ways.
Hello, my name is David and thank you for taking the time to read my profile. The fact that you’re considering seeing a counsellor means that you’re unhappy with a part of your life, whether it be an unfulfilling relationship, an uncertainty about career or lifestyle choices, or thoughts and behaviours that inhibit your ability to lead the life that you once dared to imagine. The pandemic has also forced people to look again at their life and reappraise what they really want from it.
I am a fully qualified and experienced Integrative Counsellor and Psychotherapist (Level 7), providing a confidential and professional counselling service for adults, children and young people. My Counselling practice aims to give you the opportunity to explore your problems, distresses or any difficult situations that you are experiencing in a confidential, non-judgmental, safe and supportive environment. As a Counsellor I feel privileged to be part of your journey and work to facilitate you through your difficulties so that they become more manageable.
Our relationships are fundamental to our lives, whether that’s with our family, friends or colleagues. They can bring us comfort and also anguish. I believe in three things: 1 - That our relationships can be key to a leading a fulfilling life. 2 - That where we come from informs who we are, but does not necessarily determine where we end up. 3 - That we each need to express who we are without fear of judgement. I will work with you, using the counselling relationship to mirror important relationships in your life, so that we can more easily see patterns of behaviour that no longer serve you.
Often in life we get stuck in patterns which, though once useful ways of being and relating, have now outgrown their usefulness to us, perhaps beginning to get in our way even. Psychotherapy can offer both the space to express, grasp and understand these patterns and then the support and challenge to grow in ways which seem right for you. I am currently seeing clients in person or online. I draw on a range of sources to bring my curiosity to meet you as a whole person. I am interested in your thoughts, feelings, your actions and what may be going on in your body as well as what may emerge in the here and now of our relationship.
I'm passionate about counselling because it has been both life-saving and life-changing for me. Since early childhood I had been anxious and depressed and received very little help until I reached 40, was bringing up 4 children and became very concerned about the effect my moods could be having on them. In counselling I began to experience hope, and was gradually shown how to observe my thought patterns, to look at how my childhood had affected me, and how to recover and change. I'm a different person now, as my husband and friends would tell you. Now I love to help others recover from depression and anxiety in particular.
Positive psychotherapist, counsellor/coach. I’ve worked for the biggest mental health organisation in the UK and now have my own private practice with many long-term clients. I can help you rewire your mind and achieve your best self. Would you like to feel grounded and present? Learn about mindfulness? Gain control? Whether you are struggling with anxiety, stress, low self esteem or feel like you’re stuck in a loop - there is help! Maybe you cannot overcome a trauma you experienced? Perhaps you need help finding your direction? I can help, wholeheartedly. I also provide spiritual guidance & tarot readings as a part of my sessions.
My name is Jemila Thomas, I am a trained Cognitive Behavioural Therapist (CBT) and a full member of the BABCP (http://www.babcp.com/Default.aspx), which is a regulatory body, that ensures that I have the most up to date and relevant training, to be able to support my clients. I ensure that I create a non judgmental, calm and safe environment to explore and manage your difficulties. I Offer both CBT and EMDR.
Life can be dark and confusing at times, and right now it has been a long year in a pandemic, so it is understandable to feel lonely, low, scared or hopeless. Whatever our reason for going to therapy, it’s about having someone listen; to our fears, anxieties, losses and, our hopes and joys to be heard. I offer a safe and confidential space for you to explore these difficulties and gain a deeper understanding and connection to yourself. Alongside a talking therapy space I also offer creative psychotherapy.
Starting the journey to emotional well-being may seem daunting, but with the help of a kind, professional and deeply empathic therapist alongside you, it can become the most important undertaking you ever begin. Whatever issues you are struggling with right now, change is possible and inevitable as soon as you choose to explore exactly what you need and which parts of your life are not working as well as you hope right now. As a therapist I walk beside my clients and together we can explore exactly what it is you need to help you make the changes necessary to reclaim a full and balanced life.
Hello, I am a UKCP registered Systemic Family and Psychotherapist and Social Pedagogue. I work with individuals and families/groups and I believe that every person is unique and crucial in finding solutions that lead to positive change for you, your family, team or group. I work with clients with a variety of problems, too many to mention here, especially because they are all individual and subsequently perceived like that.
