Amy Stoddard Ajayi

I am a Cognitive Behavioural Therapist with extensive NHS experience. I am the Mental Health Lead for the Cambridge Medical Academy (Cambridge University), where I train a global network of 800+ doctors and nurses in mental health. My research on improving access to mental health has been published internationally. I lecture at Southampton University teaching the Phd and MSc Psychology students. I provide in depth assessment and treatment for a range of psychological and emotional problems.

During my career, I have gained significant experience and supporting people to become psychologically and emotionally well again. Many of the patients I have supported have required specialist support with chronic anxiety and depression, low self-esteem, self-harm, suicidal thoughts, addiction and physical and psychological pain. I have in-depth clinical knowledge of how to manage complex psychological conditions.

My first degree in Anthropology and MSc in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy sit as a foundation for all of my professional work. This has included the clinical delivery and management of services for young people, troubled families and secondary care psychotherapy (complex comorbidity and Personality Disorders).

Anna Jackson

I am a CBT counsellor, CBT is excellent at getting to the root of the clients current issues and uncovering in real time what is going on. It works on the notion that we can change our thoughts and feelings by challenging and changing certain unhealthy beliefs into healthy flexible ones which are more inline with reality. It’s an empowering modality which puts the client back into the driving seat of their life.

 

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 and addictions.

 

Due to Covid19 I will be offering sessions via Zoom throughout this difficult period.

Wenna Chen

At some stage in our lives, many of us will experience stress, confusion, anxiety, depression, loneliness, bullying, diagnosis, bereavement and loss or issues relating to work/life balance.

Life can then feel overwhelming.

Counselling can help you feel lighter and more at peace when you feel low or anxious. Or if you find life too difficult, counselling can help you feel more in control. When you lose someone you love and are feeling the pain, counselling can help you honour the person you love in a healthy way, at the same time, safely adapt to a different life without them. And if you are not feeling too good about yourself, if you feel like ‘this is not me’, then counselling can help you feel happier about who you are. Other issues counselling can help including, building more satisfying relationships, be able to stand up for yourself assertively.

You’re not alone. Nobody ‘wants’ therapy. What you want is your problem to go away.

 

What can I offer you?

 

I am a fully qualified Person-Centred Counsellor and a member of the BACP- a professional body which ensures that I work to the highest ethical and professional standards.

I am experienced in counselling a range of issues such as relationship difficulties, bereavement, depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, work & academic-related stress and more.

I am experienced with over 700 hours of practice.

I understand and am conversant in feelings, thoughts, intuitions, and spirituality

I am skilled at creating a safe environment for you to talk freely

Having studied for two degrees means I understand academic-related stress.

Having worked in the business sector before means I understand work-related stress and anxiety.

 

Finally,

Just like gardeners do not ‘grow plants’ — they grow by themselves– counsellors do not ‘grow’ persons, what both counsellor and the gardener try to do is create the condition which the inherent capacities for growth and development can come for fruition.
——- Tony Merry

 

so It is my belief that you have the inner wisdom to grow, to reach your full potential and be the person you want to be, it’s my aim to work collaboratively with you so that together we can explore how to move your life forward in a positive way.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Barbara Nolan

Hello I’m Barbara, as an experienced, person centred counsellor, I fully appreciate how isolating it can be to be struggling with thoughts and anxieties and It’s very important to me to offer a safe and non judgemental environment, in which you can talk, be listened to and heard. I firmly hold the belief that when given the right support in which to explore any issues, each of us have the best resources within us to grow, change and move forward. The hardest part is taking those initial steps and finding a Counsellor who you feel you can trust. I hope to help you feel safe, where you can talk freely and be yourself and allay some of those fears.

Hal M.

Hello there dear reader, my name is Hal, short for Haldun Hüseyin Musazlioglu (just call me Hal, everyone does).

When people ask me how I got into psychotherapy, I usually say it got to me first:
I was 12 years old when I first had to see a therapist. People near me (ironically not my parents) noted already back then my permanent gloomy and melancholic outlook on life – even this in Germany where I was born, by all means not a country known for its ‘cheerio!’ attitude. Years later, I was diagnosed with dysthymic depression and finally had to be put on anti-depressants aged 30 after a preceding psychotic episode (my way of a mid-life crisis: not blowing a lot of money, but instead losing gradually touch with reality). It was also around this time when my aunt in Turkey shared that the entire matrilineal side of our family had prolonged battles with depression. Thanks, mum.

On top of this, our Muslim upbringing didn’t aid much to my family’s mental health. It also doesn’t do much for you if you realise you’re gay, and you eventually need to come out. As I had to. And did. My mum cried for three months, realised eventually her son will never be the imagined prim solicitor/doctor with wife and kids, so reverted instead to hate my tattoos.

By age 19, I had properly felt sick and tired of that kind of constrained upbringing, also of the Germans, so moved to London (though frankly, now I feel like that with the English, but this is for a different forum…)

After several more years bumbling through various underpaid customer service jobs,  I studied Art & Design/more or less useful degrees (Furniture Design. Yes, seriously.) and tried myself out among other things as a film extra and a Stand-up comedian (memorably, I died in a North-London pub in front of an audience that consisted of my ex-boyfriend and Russell Brand), I looked finally into how I could use my own experiences with depression, inter-cultural clashes, emerging kink-sexualities, an HIV+ status and a fanatical liking for Heavy Metal, so I eventually studied counselling.

By 2012 I started my counselling studies and after around 5 years, including one failed year of CBT (blowing finally a lot of money after all), I decided to stick with the humanistic school of therapy of Person-Centred counselling, developed by Carl Rogers. From the 1940ies on, already being a bit of a hippie and believing that everyone is innately ‘good’, he decided to emphasise the non-hierarchical alliance between client and therapist, while maintaining an “unconditional positive regard”.

And I soon found it worked for me – and for my other job, which is in mental health rehabilitation.

Then in August 2019, I also started my MSc degree in Psychology with Arden University. My plan after I finish in around three years’ time, is to fall into a very relaxing coma.

Until then, I genuinely find a lot of fulfilment through my work, so please don’t hesitate to ask me questions about whatever life has thrown at you.

Das alles übrigens gerne auch auf deutsch!  ; )

Paul

In the current climate of panic and fear I’m very happy to offer my services at lower than usual rates,

I always want my work to be about being of service first and foremost.

I’ve had an awareness for many years that much of the suffering and many terrible things that happen in the world  are fundamentally unnecessary and wrong. And that collectively we can help to end abuse and corruption of power.

Maybe now is the perfect time to connect with people who want to take their power back and grow through challenge and adversity, maybe you would like to grow and evolve in a new way through all the fear, panic and chaos around you.

What if the human immune system is way more complex and advanced than we know?

I have found through activities like Wim Hof ‘cold therapy training’ that what doesn’t kill us most definitely can make us stronger.

If we take sensible risks and resist completely going into fear and over relying on medication, which can risk putting harmful toxins into the body as well as negative side effects, rather than going back into our nature.

 

I’ve always been fascinated with life and the human condition, as in why people and the world are the way they are.

Why good people do bad things, and why the world works in such a strange way.

Like many of us I grew up in a challenging environment, at school it didn’t feel like I fitted in and I found many of my teachers to be abusive and even hostile at time.

Also like a lot of us, I had parents who are not bad people, but their own problems interfered with my own developmental needs and personal challenges at key points.

I love creative arts like music, film and stories we can learn from, as well as physical body based activities like swimming and martial arts, outdoor camping trips, and exploring different parts of the world.

I love working with clients and helping them to become more self aware and empowered individuals.

I have a strong passion for self development work and bringing meaning and purpose to the world.

Pablo Reina

I am integrative counsellor with an emphasis in humanistic approach but drawing from different therapeutic styles.

My focus is in creating a positive climate with the client of empathy and trust, to explore the issues that are interfering with your wellbeing. To understand the client’s circumstances and perspective and for the client to clarify how they feel/think. I then aim to intervene on the patterns that are causing the distress, to expand perspective and in collaboration bring new patterns that will improve the person’s distress and wellbeing.

 

I have studies and worked in Spain, USA and UK, therefore I also offer sessions and Spanish and therapy related to intercultural/expat difficulties.

 

Other areas of interest/experience include anxiety, depression, relationships, self-esteem and past trauma.

 

Difficult times with the right help and clarification are an opportunity for growth and newfound wellbeing. My aim is to make this process rewarding for you.

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.

Barbara Holtzeker

I chose to work as a counsellor/psychotherapist because  I believe at some stage in people’s lives there is a need to reach out for help outside of family and friends for many different reasons and I feel that I can offer the help and support to make positive changes to lives and the difficulties a person maybe experiencing.  I believe a therapeutic relationship is of paramount importance with trust in the counsellor being the cornerstone of therapy, empowering people  and gain confidence in their own ability to move forwards.  I work with clients in a non-directive way on their journey to making these changes.

I am also a trained Samaritan and volunteered with the organisation for three years.

Counselling is a unique experience in which an individual can explore, understand and accept themselves and their relationships with others. I know how having someone to turn to, to talk about how you feel can be so helpful. It can be life changing. 
We have all struggled with difficult times in our lives and had difficult emotions to try and make sense of. You are not alone.
​In my practice I will support you to know yourself better, by helping you reflect, think and feel about your experiences. I will help you grow your own self-acceptance and awareness.
