It may be a one off counselling session you’re looking for, which can be beneficial when faced with a specific difficulty, and would like to speak to someone neutral about it. Or maybe you are seeking longer term structured sessions to address historical, situational, or recurring difficulties. Amongst other struggles, some of the difficulties I have helped clients with include anxiety, depression, bereavement, loss of status or security, breakdown in relationships, living with illness, loss of confidence and low self-esteem.

Are you somebody who wants to prioritise your health and wellbeing but something keeps standing in your way? Maybe you want to focus on exercise and fitness or learning ways to manage stress. Or you might feel ready to make changes to the balance of life e.g. work/home/family/friends. Our thoughts and emotions can sometimes act as barriers to us living the lives we want. For example, feelings of shame, self criticism, perfectionism as well as low mood, stress and anxiety can all influence the way we behave and at times take us away from the people we want to be. This is where I come in.

Difficult feelings may relate to depression, panic, anxiety, relationships, work stress, chronic or life-threatening illness and more. I aim to help by providing a safe, confidential & non-judgemental space. Focusing on what you bring to each session - the emphasis of our relationship is based on trust & respect. I have current experience of working in an NHS setting, cancer support and high schools. Together, we can explore whatever it is that brings you to counselling, and hopefully help you to make sense of things; perhaps coming to a different, more helpful understanding of yourself and your life circumstances.

Are you worried about your child’s wellbeing? Do they show signs of stress, anxiety, or low mood? Do they refuse to talk to you? Do you and your child get into heated arguments? These feelings may be a result of a traumatic event, pressures from school, family difficulties, bullying or obsessions. Our children can perceive the world differently to us, and often we have forgotten what it was like to be a child or teenager. I provide online therapy or school appointments for children and teens where I work together with your child to overcome any mental or emotional issues they might be experiencing.

Maybe you are bereaved and feeling hopeless, but can't discuss this with family? Maybe you are feeling anxious and isolated, working from home and you are fearful of discussing job security with your boss? Maybe you don’t even know why you are feeling so sad or overwhelmed but you do know it is beginning to impact your daily life. Counselling is a talk therapy and it is extremely useful for exploring what is going on beneath the surface we present to the world, that version of ourselves that tries so hard to keep all of the plates spinning at all costs. I want to help you with whatever you are feeling, you are not alone with this.

I am a qualified and experienced counsellor/psychotherapist based in New Mills, High Peak. I offer weekday appointments. If you are finding some aspects of life to be difficult, I can work with you to make life more enjoyable. Sometimes it is not the obvious content of a therapy session which brings about change or growth, but the relational process of having a safe supportive counselling relationship which can help you to gain freedom from your fears and anxieties. The relationship I build with my clients empowers positive change. I also provide training to organisations and clinical supervision to other counsellors and trainees.

I am committed to supporting people in healing from relational trauma, developmental trauma, childhood trauma and interpersonal trauma of all kinds. Human beings are amazing, remarkable and resilient in our ability to cope with adversity. We often compartmentalise or dissociate what happens to us so we can carry on living. We also turn to all manner of addictions and behaviours that on the surface may seem disordered and destructive yet at the same time they make perfect sense. They protect us, help us to stay in control, help numb the pain, help us to survive, and help communicate our stories.

Suffering with our mental health is very hard to find relief from, finding ourselves going around in circles and losing touch with our previous lifestyle, wondering 'am I ever going to find a way out?' I offer you face-to-face sessions in a nurturing, non-judgemental environment . I work as an Integrative therapist so that your sessions are tailored to your needs. I predominantly draw upon Person Centred Therapy, ACT, CBT and Transactional Analysis to address issues such as: anxiety; trauma; depression/lack of motivation; disturbed sleep; performance/productivity, relationships/social interaction; existential angst/lack of meaning

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 Porthmadog specialise in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others.

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.
