“Stars cannot shine without darkness”
I offer CBT informed and Person Centred counselling for adults, couples and children.

Are you struggling with the pressures of life?
Life can have many anxieties and you may not know who to turn to for support. I offer a relaxed and confidential space in which we can explore what life changes you would like to make. As an experienced counsellor I can walk this path alongside you, offering support along the way, listening to you without any judgement, all of which can lead to making positive changes in your life.

Kieran Mountney

Are you someone experiencing anger, anxiety, worry, stress, negative self-talk, or self-doubt? Does it feel as though negative thoughts, comparisons, “what ifs”, and worst-case scenarios are constantly occupying your mind? Perhaps you’re tired of putting others first and not prioritising your own needs? Are you tired of feeling alone? Or are you feeling overwhelmed and maybe even burnt out from life (and that was even before lockdown!)?

I know from my own experiences and from many years of helping people that putting yourself first and asking for help can bring up feelings of fear and indeed shame.  I’ve been there and it sucks to feel this way but the good news is: you’re not alone and it’s possible to find relief.

Together, we can help you discover your ability to build confidence, boost your self-esteem, tackle stress whether it be at home or at work, create healthy relationships with yourself and others, and gain control of the worry and anxiety in your life.

When I work with my clients, I use compassion, humour, and absolutely no judgment because therapy should be a place where you feel safe to be yourself; the “real you”.  I will provide the effective techniques and support you need to gain growth, understanding, and develop skills that will help you start living the awesome life you deserve.

We all have the ability to change but sometime’s we need a little bit of help getting there.

Finding a therapist takes courage, and I’m so glad you’re here! Whether this is your first time or you have previous experience with counselling, I will be happy to join with you wherever you are on your journey. Email me to schedule your first session today!

Tracy Dunning

When we go through life, our opinions alter and so do our thoughts on past and present experiences. Things we have been through previously can suddenly hit us like a ton of bricks and we don’t know where the thoughts came from. We can be watching tv, reading a book and all of a sudden, Anxiety we never had before rears its ugly head affecting us in ways we never thought of, disturbing our daily lives whether gradually or suddenly. We could be sitting in a cafe with friends, completing tasks at school/work and all of a sudden a huge wave of grief takes over us. I am here to help you explore these feelings learning ways to cope.

 

I am a qualified counsellor and have CBT as my core model of study. I have also had personal experience of mental & physical abuse, health issues, divorce, loss & bereavement, LGBT+ issues and many others from child, young person and adult perspectives therefore I am able to empathise with my clients issues and walk with them on their own path of life.

Natalie Mills

I know things are difficult at the moment with Covid-19 so I’m here to help if you need support. If you’re interested please get in touch and let me know how I can help. I offer a friendly and confidential one-to-one counselling service supporting adults, young people, and children with a variety of issues using an integrative approach.

When counselling I use an integrative approach that encompasses different therapies such as person-centred, cognitive behavioural therapy, mindfulness, solution-focused therapies, hypnotherapy, creative, and play therapy. I find this then gives clients a tool box of skills that they can use, rather than just one approach.

I will be empathic, honest, and non-judgemental during our sessions. As well as my private practice, I work for Respect For All who specialise in counselling adults and children with autism. I have previously worked as a school and college counsellor.

Anna Jackson

I am a fully accredited integrative CBT psychotherapist. CBT is excellent at getting to the root of the clients current issues as well as addressing any past traumas which are holding them back today.

CBT works on the notion that we are not disturbed by things but by the view we take of them. I work with the client to address and change where necessary any unhealthy rigid thoughts and beliefs via a series of cognitive tasks and therapeutic interventions. It’s an approach that really puts the client back into the driving seat.

CBT is a proven, results driven  modality where the client often begins to see notable differences after the first few sessions.

I work both privately and for a clinic in London. I have experience working across a number of different issues including anxiety, depression, OCD, insomnia, eating disorders and addictions.

Sharan Thiara

I am a qualified Psychotherapist counsellor who practices with a Humanistic & Integrative approach. This means I will focus on the needs of you, using techniques from different approaches.

Each and everyone of us are unique and therefore I do not feel I am the expert of you and can tell you what to do, my belief is to support and guide you, with my experience to help you work through your concerns. So that you can start to feel more complete within yourself.

The first step in starting counselling can feel overwhelming, bringing past thoughts to the surface and stirring up feelings of being judged, neglect, not trusting the other. My attitude is to value you for doing the best you can. It can be tough for us at times. Let us accept us for who and how we are right now at this moment.

I have personal experiences around being judged, mental health as well as trauma, so please do not feel you are alone. Once we allow ourselves to sit with the uncomfortable feelings, we will begin to flourish.

Dave

With the outbreak of Corona Disease i am now offering support via Telephone and internet versions of face to face therapy, supporting people affected by the condition or illnesses that could be regarded as high risk during this tough period.

Life can sometimes be so complex and difficult that we do not always feel able to sort it out and get back to feeling “normal again”.

The complexity of life and the hardships that some people have to endure has always fascinated me, and having experienced many personal losses and life changing events myself, my passion has grown, and I would like the opportunity to “make a difference” and support those when it is most needed.

Working in my current work environments I understand how the demands of daily life and major life events such as a Bereavement, Domestic Violence, Physical/Sexual abuse, or divorce can leave us feeling overwhelmed, confused or even just sad.

I also have experience of supporting Family affected by MND, and emotional support around the journey they will be going through.

My role as your Counsellor is to help you to explore the feelings and emotions that are often related to your current/past life experiences. I offer you the opportunity to reflect on what is happening in your world and for me to support you therapeutically to explore alternative ways of copings and dealing with emotive issues, that impact negatively on your life and to family and friends that are dear to you..

I appreciate how difficult it can be to discuss personal problems or even where or how to begin, but I offer a safe place to express your feelings and concerns, listen to you without judgement, and give you the time and safety to explore your emotional concerns, and support you through your decision making process.

Ellena Fries

I’m a UKCP registered Psychotherapist with a body oriented approach. More than 20 years of experience have given me time to acquire a variety of tools and insight into many approaches to meet the needs of each client in an individual way that respects each person’s own wisdom towards healing.

Main specialities are trauma, depression, anxiety, spiritual development, anger management, berievement among many others.

I work online and face to face and the body oriented aspect can be practised surprisingly well via video links – I’m myself receiving support and supervision in this way.

I’m a psychodynamic and body oriented psychotherapist with my a practice in Penzance, Cornwall. Genuine compassion, kindness, mindfulness, contact, depth, kind confrontation and humour are some keys to describe the way I work. The aim is to build a trusting relationship that creates a sense of deep safety and can also withstand a challenge if that might be needed.

Sometimes words are not enough or cannot reach the place that wants to be reached. The way I integrate talking therapy and the body oriented approach depends on each individual client and their specific needs. With some clients I ‘only’ talk, but I will alwyas encourage mindfulness of breath and body.

Body oriented psychotherapy has proven most helpful for trauma, anxiety and panic disorders and depression. If you are feeling sad, experiencing relationship issues or just having a hard time feeling overwhelmed with life, your children or an illness, there will be a way forward.

Is it for you?

    If you have been in therapy and found that just talking didn’t get you to the place you needed to go …
    If you have ever craved for a therapy that gives you the space and the guidance to go deep and express, what feels unexpressable…
    If you have noticed that when you feel depressed or anxious your body also seems to be suffering like IBS, being tense or aching

…then a body oriented approach might just be what you have been looking for. Our body is a miracle. It houses our personality, our spirit and our soul. Whatever we do or whatever happens to one of these aspects is intrinsically linked with the others.

What happens during treatment?

Talking is still a main tool in my therapy practice. But alongside the mind with its capacity to articulate and analyse, I will invite the whole of your Being to be present. We will work with body awareness, learning how to sense what your body feels like and to notice its messages. In order to do that I might invite you to close your eyes, deepen your breath or if appropriate to lie down. We might do specific exercises to support your grounding or the way you set boundaries. It is absolutely possible to do this via video link.

The only think we cannot do via video link is this: Sometimes I use touch (only in agreement with the client)  and I might use a particular massage: Biodynamic Massage, also called Gerda Boyesen Method. It is a  very therapeutic massage, that has been especially developed to work with the mind/body connection.

Essence – Simply Being – or: who are we really?

When we embark in deep psychotherapy, sometimes we find ourselves on the path of spiritual growth and a search for our true self. Metaphysical questions might open up and the journey becomes its own purpose. Spiritual development and coaching can be part of a treatment agreement. Mindfulness techniques and Meditation are both very nourishing for the soul and the nervous system and can take us beyond the realm of the thinking mind into Simply Being.

About myself

Born in 1960 I grew up in Germany near the French border. In 2002 I came to Cornwall. I work in private practice in Penzance and for Occupational Health, RCHT Truro. I have over 20years experience and still love it.
I’m passionate about spiritual development. I’m a Buddhist and a student of the Ridhwan school. I’m a  trained Yoga teacher and I have a degree in Social Anthropology, I care for the planet and I support  multiculturalism. I love humour, nature and the arts. Walking, painting and dancing are favorites. All the ‘hard facts’ like membership bodies and training you will find further down in my profile.

Thank you for reading this. I appreciate that you are taking the time.

Nicola Demetriou

“I wish had the courage to express my feelings. I wish that I had let myself be happier”. Hi I’m Nicola and I believe that having courage to seek help when we need it can change our lives. Making you feel safe and heard is my priority. Walking through your difficult feelings you will have the opportunity to explore a new perspective and find the tools needed to equip you to manage situations more effectively. I work with people who have depression, anxiety, bereavement, work stress, abuse, self-esteem and relationship difficulties. I am passionate in helping you to feel more fulfilled and understand more about yourself.

I have previously trained as a primary school teacher. However, after suffering a very close bereavement I reached out for support and saw the benefit and value of counselling which I also wanted to bring to other people.

I offer face to face and online counselling through video calls or telephone counselling. This allows flexibility for you to have a session wherever you feel comfortable without having to travel, especially in these unprecedented times. Furthermore, it offers similar benefits to face to face counselling as we are able to see each other and build the one to one relationship more effectively.

During our first session which is 50 minutes long, I believe building a trusting relationship with you is paramount and we will explore what has brought you to counselling and the experiences you are currently having as well as touching on your past experiences to gain a greater understanding of who you are as a person. I will then discuss with you what your goals of the therapy are which we will review in set intervals together, depending on whether you would like short term or long term counselling.
