SimonaCampli

I am a Psychotherapist and Coach specialised in strategic brief, impactful and long-lasting interventions.

Working strategically means that my aim is to co-create and reach with clients transformational goals through sometimes unconventional solutions, in the shortest period of time, fostering resourceful autonomy, positive communication, relational and emotional strategies.

The overall atmosphere offered is a welcoming, open-minded experience of personal exploration and facilitation of growth.

With a Ba and Ma in Psychology, I specialise in a variety of brief therapies while also following a background in Clinical Psychology and Systemic psychotherapy.

This means that, alongside 1:1 work, I have gained lots of experience working with couples, families and teams.

Having worked in different settings and with people from various industries, from the Italian Nhs to the Charity Sector in the UK and the educational, private and creative worlds, my professional mindset aims to cater to different needs in a tailored fashion.

Igniting positive change at large is my passion, supporting people in designing their own version of wellbeing and advocating for better futures.

I work both in Italian and English.

Anthony Walker

If you are thinking about making some changes in your life, and if you feel you need a helping hand, I can help you find a way through. I know it’s a cliché but you really have made the first step already. Take a few minutes to read a little more, and if you think I can help, just let me know.

I have over 30 years experience within Addiction /Dependencies, and related fields, working with a wide variety of clients from diverse backgrounds and cultures.  I have developed and managed an integrated Hypnotherapy approach which includes aspects of Solution Focus and Motivational models, and elements of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. In addition to Alcohol and Drug problems, many of my clients have been seeking help for Anxiety and Stress, Relationship difficulties, Phobias, Confidence issues and Smoking Cessation.

All that might sound a bit complicated but, to be honest, it can be quite simple really. We talk things over for a bit, look at the changes you want to make, decide between us if Hypnotherapy might help, and we take it from there. There is no great mystery to Hypnotherapy. Nothing to be afraid of. No one can make you do anything you don’t want to do.  TV stunts are nothing to do with Hypnotherapy. In all these years I’ve never seen anyone cluck like a chicken but I’ve seen plenty make a positive difference to their life.

Tommaso Palumbo

Please note that  all of my sessions are currently delivered by telephone or Skype.
I firmly believe that it’s never too late to learn how to be happier in your personal life and relationships, or enjoy success and fulfillment in your career.
I wasn’t born a Psychologist/Counsellor and I know what it means to live and work in the real world: I am a creative therapist with a background in Law & Finance and a professional experience gained both in the public and private sectors, at different hierarchical levels, working with people from all walks of life.
I have trained with Albert Ellis, the creator of Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy (REBT) and one of the most eminent psychologists of all times; with Deanne Jade, one of the UK’s leading experts in eating disorders; and with Prof. Stephen Palmer, the father of coaching in the UK.
Since the summer of 1991, I am a man with a mission: to help people lead healthier and happier lives.

I can help you if you are experiencing any of the following: Stress, Eating Disorders, Obsessions, OCD, Phobias, Self-harm, Abuse, Anxiety, Bereavement, Depression, Loss, Post-traumatic stress, Trauma, Health related issues, Cultural issues, Identity issues, Men’s issues, Self esteem, Sexuality, Spirituality, Relationships, Anger management, Redundancy, Work related issues. I also provide Career coaching, Life coaching and Development coaching.

Jennifer Campbell Kirk

****To help as many people as possible during this pandemic I am offering a 50% reduction on my hourly rate for a reduced period during this difficult time******

I know how difficult it must be searching through the profiles trying to find the right therapist/coach. Making the decision to enter into therapy is a brave one and sometimes it can be difficult. I have been told by clients that I am calm, warm, welcoming and approachable. I have also been told that I am able to put them at ease.

I offer a safe non judgemental space to work through your difficulties and offer strategies and tools to quickly reduce your symptoms and help you feel more in control. I specialise in anger, anxiety, depression, obsessive and compulsive behaviours, stress and trauma. Many of my clients self-report to feeling much better after 6-8 sessions.

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.

Sylvia

I am passionate in taking the stigma and taboo away from mental health and therapy.  I strive to make therapy as accessible as possible and to ensure that my clients can get the support they need.  I acknowledge that many clients come to therapy when they are worried, stressed, overwhelmed and some times frightened.  I work to improve mental well being and resilience and to work with clients to support them to feel that they can cope with issues and concerns and can work towards their goals at their own personal pace.

I work well with clients who find it difficult to talk about how they feel, or ask for what they need.  I help clients to build self esteem, be more self compassionate and build the tools they need to maintain mental wellness and resilience.

Kate Megase

My aim is to help you with any problem or emotional pain, which you are finding hard to handle on your own, resolve these difficulties, achieve your goals and provide you with the tools to ensure long-lasting success.

I am passionate about my work and I am committed to providing an excellent service to help my clients:

    Improve self-esteem
    Develop healthy relationships
    Provide clear techniques, strategies along with unique ways and ideas to treat stress, anxiety and depression
    Fulfil overall therapeutic goals within 6 sessions

I have a proven track record of my success rate with my clients and I will support them throughout the entire journey of change

Counselling can help you with those difficult times in life when you need to resolve a problem which is stopping you from achieving your personal best. As a therapist, I believe that there is no problem that cannot be resolved to your satisfaction and there are no limits to what can be achieved within counselling.

I believe that the relationship between therapist and client can be a vehicle for growth.

Together, we can explore how events of the past, often from childhood, have contributed to your current situation. This process will promote emotional growth at your own pace. This will also help you to gain greater self-awareness, increase your esteem and help you to understand the relationship with yourself and others. This process will create a sense of inner peace and enable you to understand your emotions and gain more self-identify.

Natalia Maciel MBPsS

Hello! I am a psychologist registered with the British Psychological Society.I enjoy helping people in their desire to close the gap between where they are right now and where they want to be in the future.

I am passionate about counselling,I have experienced and witnessed the many benefits that talking to an experienced counsellor can bring.I have a foundation in different therapies but I work from a PERSON CENTERED approach.

I will help you to realise what resources and support are available to you that you can use to work through your own issues, build your self-confidence and appreciate that you always have options.I will treat you as the expert on yourself, as no-one else knows exactly what it’s like to be you.

I will not judge you, no matter what you bring to the session. This helps build a trustworthy relationship in which you can feel free and supported to disclose whatever is troubling you. Eventually it will lead you to discover your own abilities and autonomy, so that you can cope with current and future problems.

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.
