John Hilsdon

I have been a counsellor for over 20 years, working with people of all ages and from many different social and cultural backgrounds. I love working online because it brings a clear and powerful focus to communication, supporting the positive changes my clients are seeking to make in their lives.

I have worked in education and counselling for most of my working life, beginning as a teacher in adult and further education, then as a university lecturer, a head of department and wellbeing services manager. I have worked as a counsellor since 1999. I am a big music fan, an animal lover, traveller and an outdoorsy person – but I love cities too! I really enjoy my counselling work because I love people. We are all so different – and yet we share that essential thing of being human and living in this extraordinary, beautiful and sometimes cruel and terrifying world. If you choose to work with me, I will do my utmost to help you, to respect your uniqueness as a person, and to be with you in working through whatever issues your bring to the counselling sessions.

Jennifer Campbell Kirk

I am a psychotherapist working for the NHS. I know how difficult it must be searching through the profiles trying to find the right therapist. Making the decision to enter into therapy is a brave one and sometimes it can be difficult. Clients have said I am warm, welcoming and approachable and I am able to put them at ease.

As a psychotherapist,  I help you explore and understand patterns in your thinking and in relationships with others and with yourself  that may be causing you pain or making you feel stuck. I help you find your own solutions instead of giving you advice. I believe if you are given a safe space to be heard you will find your own healing.

I am also trained in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and specialise in helping people who struggle with anxiety, depression and obsessive and compulsive behaviours to reduce symptoms quickly and help you feel more in control. I also combine mindfulness and relaxation techniques to help you reduce and manage stress.

****To help as many people as possible during this pandemic I am offering a 50% reduction on my hourly rate for the next three months for Skype Therapy during this difficult time******

Counselling for Change

I have worked in a call centre, an estate agency and as a Project Manager for the NHS.  And also as a Lorry Driver, a Factory Operative and Retail Assistant and a soldier in the Territorial Army.

In all these roles what I enjoyed most was working with people; I then moved through roles as a Personnel Manager and Trainer to working in the charity sector as a Mental Health Employment Specialist, which I did for about 20 years.

I found it was a great privilege to work with people with mental health problems and to help them to rebuild their confidence and trust, learn new skills and then move on to volunteering and paid employment.

I saw people who had been labelled and often written off by society, demonstrate what they were capable of and also how their mental health would improve as a result of experiencing compassion, having a sense of purpose and a reason to get out of bed.

The medical model of mental ill health is something that I am very sceptical about; I believe that people become unwell very often because of having to tolerate the intolerable.  That is to say deep seated structural inequality in society, warfare and it’s consequences, unemployment and being oppressed by racism, misogyny, homophobia and transphobia.  And that’s on top of the stuff that is unavoidable like sickness and death.

Consequently I believe that most of this could be avoided or healed with love, expressed in the form of social justice and inclusivity.  And that counselling has a part to play in helping people get their needs met in the world by offering them unconditional compassion and respect.

As a result of my own experience of anxiety and depression and the counsellors that helped me, I decided to study counselling.  Through study, not only did I learn how to help others but I also learned a great deal about myself, which helps me to be a better counsellor.

Having been divorced and bereaved, and being a Father and Step-Father, I remain very down to earth, and if my life experience is useful when working with someone, then I will share it. 

In the counselling that I offer, I make use of the body mind connection e.g. through breathing techniques, and drawing on my curiosity and my client’s courage we enable them to live in accordance with themselves rather than their past or other people’s expectations.

In addition to counselling, I was helped holistically to overcome my own difficulties by exploring the meaning of life through poetry and literature.  These taught me that I was not alone in my suffering; much of what I was struggling with was the same stuff that people had been struggling with since humans evolved.  And through walking and being outdoors and learning to appreciate the natural world and the history in the landscape, I came to appreciate my place in the world and find some meaning in living.

Sarah Jack

I’ve been counselling since 1989, and since then have been inspired by the resilience, bravery and sensitivity of the many adults, young people, families and couples I have worked with. I have extensive experience of working with sexual abuse and trauma, parenting and attachment difficulties, identity and relationship issues, depression and anxiety, bereavement and loss. I am committed to collaborating with you to find the resilient, hopeful part of yourself that becomes expert in managing your challenges and is motivated by the smallest signs of progress towards your preferred future.
I originally qualified as a Person-Centred counsellor, and have completed additional training in Transactional Analysis, Systemic Family Therapy, Attachment Based Therapy and Online Counselling. In 2007 I qualified as a Solution Focused Practitioner and this is how I prefer to work now. I have found the Solution Focused approach to be extremely effective in my personal life as well as in my work with clients.

natasha fletcher

Welcome. I’m Natasha and  I help people who struggle with anxiety, stress burnout and  trauma.

You have a good life and lots going for you. You have supportive family and friends, but anxiety, worries and overthinking are holding you back from fully enjoying them. You want to be able to say yes to opportunities that arise, knowing that anxiety isn’t going to hold you back. Perhaps you have been putting off seeking help hoping that your problems will get better on their own or you might have been trying to manage it yourself for too long. If this sounds like you and you’ve found yourself fighting a battle with your own mind get in touch.

As a fully accredited Cognitive Behavioural Therapist (CBT) & Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprogramming (EMDR) therapist and having worked in the field of mental health for over 15 years I have helped many people struggling with similar issues. Always with one eye on providing some immediate relief and the other on addressing deeper issues togther we can get to a place where anxiety isn’t running things.

Counselling London Psychotherapy

My aim is to bring clarity, sensitivity, and creativity to my work, with warmth, maturity and humour, offering fresh insight in supportive, affirming ways. I have an impartial perspective, working both intuitively and with knowledge. Holding a perspective of self-determination, I view therapy as joint exploration, which may include exploring our resources, strengths, qualities alongside our limitations, frailties, vulnerabilities. Recognising we are all unique, I don’t hold a “one size fits all”, tick-box approach, acknowledging that no one counselling approach explains the complexities or holds the truth for everyone.

I value each person’s uniqueness and respond in an individual way to your circumstances and at the same time appreciate the interconnectedness of what we human beings hold in common – that beneath our differences are fundamental shared experiences & central concepts, that creativity, the human heart & suffering are universal. I welcome, value and respect people’s diversity, uniqueness, autonomy.

Jessica

I’m a BACP registered counsellor with a Diploma in Integrative Counselling as well as a Diploma in Online counselling

I work with you in an Integrative way, which means I pull together different approaches which I feel you will respond well to, rather than sticking rigidly to one model. This way we can work together in the way that best suits you.

As well as running my private practice, I currently work at The Terrence Higgins Trust with people living with HIV, and prior to that I worked on their Youth Counselling Project delivering counselling to young adults, with the Central School of Speech and Drama, and a Jewish counselling service for adults. I’ve sat with many different people with individual stories, whether it be bereavement, life limiting illness, relationship difficulties or coming to terms with their sexuality. You can rest assured I will be there for you and will do my best to help you to see things more clearly and to help you to work out how to live a better more fulfilled life.

In addition, my previous work in television production equips me well to support people in the creative industries, and I understand at first hand the challenges of high pressure, high profile work and home life.

I adhere to the BACP Ethical Framework and work within their guidelines to keep you safe and well supported.

Bríd Scanlon-Johal

I am a fully qualified Psychotherapist, Hypnotherapist, and a specialist in Rapid Transformational Therapy.

I have worked with many professional women over the years I’ve been in practice. I understand how frustrating it can be for women who are used to achieving and seeing results quickly, to spend months and thousands of pounds in talk therapy and not really feel any tangible, significant shifts, often for years.

I wanted to be able to help my clients to achieve significant results as quickly as possible.

Having researched and experienced many techniques I discovered the power of hypnotherapy, specifically Rapid Transformational Therapy (RTT) and have since used it in combination with other therapeutic techniques (including aspects of Psychodynamic,  Solution Focussed Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), and NLP) to best suit each individual client. I am now able to help my clients to achieve their goals by getting right to the core of what it is that’s been holding them back, sometimes in as little as three sessions.

Working together I have been able to help my clients to feel a positive shift in as little as 3 sessions with me.

To find out more about RTT, the process and how it works contact me for a free 20 minute discover call…

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.

Basak Jeffreys

We live in a challenging world. There are times in our lives when we must endure pain, stress and loss whilst holding our business and personal lives together. Some people choose to work through their issues alone, perhaps considering reaching for help is as a sign of weakness. Talking with someone who has no relationship to your daily life, willing to listen and understand your concerns can help.

I understand the pressures of difficult emotions and circumstances. I’m here to help you to address your challenges by encouraging you to clarify the issues, explore options, develop strategies and increase self-awareness.

I place importance on providing warmth and empathic attunement in a safe and confidential environment, which allow us to reach the heart of the issue sensitively and effectively.

I’m a Humanistic therapist which means that I integrated Person Centred, Gestalt Therapy and Transactional Analysis. I refrain from offering interpretations about my client’s behaviour. Instead, I choose to help you explore and become aware of unhelpful patterns, beliefs and behaviours whilst assisting you in gaining an awareness of your resilience, inner-resources and strengths. As part of my integrative diploma training, I have also synthesised the psychodynamic approach and CBT into my practice in order to provide tailor-made treatment for each client.

In my practice, I facilitate positive changes for my clients by encouraging them to get in touch with their own psychological strengths and to overcome those difficulties thus finding meaning.

From my earlier background in film and media I have imported an ability for creative thinking within the professional, ethical bounds of counselling. This is particularly productive for young individuals who may find comfort and ease in expressing themselves pictorially as opposed to articulating their life challenges.

Your Mind Therapy

At a young age I’ve witnessed parental domestic abuse, bullied at primary and secondary school which created isolation, this triggered me to have low self esteem, anxiety and depression which went on to effect me in areas of relationships and confidence. As I went into adult life I suffered with post natal depression and mental health anxiety.As well as helping in my own recovery using CBT and holistic approaches All of the above has helped me to understand the conditions and how to help people better along side being able to relate to a persons experiences for the better. . This is one of the reasons why I chose this field of work although I did a law degree.

I offer therapy via Zoom or Whatts app or Telephone.

Maria Patricia Rogers

 

I run my own practice called Ray of hope counselling services,  I  have a degree in counselling and psychotherapy. I also have an advanced diploma in integrative counselling.  I  offer clients therapy using the humanistic approach. I have a great deal of experience in counselling and group work.  I have worked within various professional organisations, including the NHS and The Priory Hospital, working with addiction and many other issues such as  trauma anxiety and depression.

I provide a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment offering my clients unconditional, positive regard and empathy as they grow and develop. This can lead to greater insight, healing and progress.  Sometimes the world we live in gets tough. There can be so many mix messages which we start to believe about ourselves, this can sometimes develop into a negative core belief such as. ” I’m not good enough or I don’t fit in”, and many more, as a result of this clients can often feel depressed, it starts to affect self-esteem. Counselling can help clients to challenge these negative core beliefs and help break the patterns this will result in a more positive self-concept. and self-belief.

Our early experiences, both negative and positive, impact on our present way of thinking, behaving and relating to others, therefore it is important to help the client to make those links between past and present behaviour, to increase their self-awareness and bring about change. I  work with shame reduction inner child model which allows for healing and change.

As well as one to one’s I  run group therapy sessions with a guided meditation on a Saturday from 2-4 at our Brentwood well-being centre called the mews,  right next to Brentwood station. presently i am offering online zoom or skype sessions.

I believe in the core conditions, i.e., putting clients at the centre of their own recovery and empowering them to change their lives for the better!
