I believe every experience we encounter whether positive or negative helps us in our personal growth and my role is to provide a safe space to listen to you and help you work out how you can overcome your difficulties and succeed in your journey.
I am registered with the BACP which means I adhere to their strict ethical framework.
I am able to offer face to face or online appointments Monday to Friday, weekdays and evenings.

We all face times in our lives when we need extra support. Finding a private space where you can really be heard can be extraordinarily powerful, even transformative. The way that I work is firstly to listen to your story, ask questions and together we explore what life means for you. As a CBT therapist I incorporate a range of techniques from my training and experience to empower you to create lasting change.
If you have found this site and are facing a challenging time, I would like to support you in the process of beginning therapy and starting to make the changes you hope for.
What do I offer?
Having also worked as a therapist for Mind Monmouthshire and Mothers for Mothers I offer clear strategies to treat symptoms of: Anxiety, including health, social and generalised anxiety. Depression and low mood. OCD. Panic. Peri-natal difficulties. PTSD and trauma
A bit about me
Prior to re-training as a CBT psychotherapist I was a learning and development specialist, so supporting others has always been at the heart of whatever I’ve done. My own life experience and therapy journey have brought me to this work and the techniques and recommendations we might use are things I have done or continue to do in my day-to-day life.
I am available on Tuesdays 09:15-15:15 online and face to face.
Tilly Line, BACP no: 00950834
Thank you for taking a look at my profile. I appreciate it can be hard to make a choice about who would make the right counsellor for you, and people enter therapy for a variety of reasons. I can offer you a non-judgemental, safe and supportive space to talk. Together we can explore your thoughts and feelings and find a way forward that works for you. Perhaps you are struggling with a particular situation or relationship, are feeling confused about elements of your identity, or are experiencing sadness or anger? Whatever it is that brings you to counselling we can work through it together.
I take a humanistic approach to counselling, valuing each person as unique. I can help you to build your self-awareness, overcome difficulties, and to recognise your strengths and potential. I won’t tell you what to do, but I will listen and work with you to understand your experiences and choices.
I have previous experience of working with individuals to explore their professional identity, as well as supporting people with anxiety and low self-esteem. I also have experience of working with LGBT people, people from different cultures, and a range of age groups.
I am available Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays.

Hi, my name is Charlene and I'm a Counselling Psychologist in training.
Many people struggle with their mental health at different times in their lives and this year has been more challenging for some due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Whatever difficulties or challenges you may be experiencing, I'm passionate about creating a safe space for us to explore them together. My approach is always compassionate, non-judgmental and flexible depending upon your needs.
I have received training in several therapeutic approaches and will always try to adapt my approach to what works best for you. I also have experience in the use of expressive arts, such as art, music and storytelling, to support emotional wellbeing.
At present, I am offering remote (phone or video) sessions for young people (aged 12-18) on Tuesdays and Thursdays between 5pm-7pm

‘Someone to talk to, without judgement’
If you’ve never been to counselling before, the thought of it can feel a little daunting. But we all need a place to sort through our troubles and figure out what isn’t working so well in our lives. I would like to provide a reassuring, safe and steady time each week for you to take a deep breath, get your bearings and share what’s happening for you. I can help you to see things a little more clearly and we can begin to make sense of it all, together.
My particular areas of interest include parenting, blended families, body image and autism, but please be assured that we can work with whatever you would like to bring to our sessions. You are welcome, each and every part of you.
Available times: Thursdays, 9am - 6pm via Zoom.
Sophia Coltart, BACP no: 00953604
Life can be complex, uncertain and challenging. Often when faced with problems it can be difficult to talk to friends or families. Counselling offers the opportunity for you to speak freely, to be heard with no judgement and to receive a warm and empathetic space to explore whatever is causing you distress. I truly believe that, although challenging, it is possible to move forward.
What do I offer?
I offer a warm, safe and confidential space and bring myself and my experiences to our work together whilst keeping clear boundaries to keep the work safe.
I initially trained as a solicitor acting on behalf of those with mental health difficulties which led to me retraining as a Psychological therapist in the NHS. I have worked in Primary and Specialist Secondary Services, with all age ranges delivering therapeutic interventions to help manage anxiety including social anxiety, health anxiety, sleep difficulties, phobias, panic, generalized anxiety disorders and depression using CBT informed therapies and techniques such as mindfulness. Currently I am a student counsellor studying a Masters in Counselling and Psychotherapy having completed a Person Centered Certificate in Counselling and combined with my previous training I can offer an integrative therapeutic approach tailored to your individual needs.
I am available on Mondays and Tuesdays.
Marc Newton, BACP no: 00964252
Life is often messy and complicated. The tensions of day-to-day life, as well as unexpected and traumatising events, can make everything feel ‘tangled up’ and overwhelming. Sometimes we feel stuck, not knowing how to move forwards. It can feel impossible to cope. I will work with you to explore your feelings, to identify and ‘unpick the knots’, and ease some of the tensions.
I am a student counsellor, currently working towards completing my MA in Counselling and Psychotherapy at the University of the West of England. I am registered with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. Having been trained in psychodynamic counselling and also in person-centred counselling, I work in an integrative way. This means that I work flexibly to meet the needs of my clients, working from the belief that a good relationship between counsellor and client is the most important factor in enabling change. As a result, you will find our sessions warm, supportive and non-judgemental. I aim to create a safe and inclusive environment where you can express yourself authentically, feeling heard and understood.
Understanding the situations in which we find ourselves – as well as understanding and accepting ourselves – can feel daunting. I am here to support you in this.
I am able to offer face-to-face sessions on Fridays, between 10am and 5pm. I am also happy to work online via Zoom.
Denise Hart, BACP no: 00928195
Sometimes life gets the better of us and we are swamped in our thoughts, unable to find a clear way forward. We want to make changes but find ourselves unable to get out of our rut. Please do not continue to struggle alone, a few counselling sessions can increase your confidence and purpose to help you implement those changes that help you move forward.
An Integrative counsellor, BA (Hons) Counselling and Therapeutic Practice undergraduate and a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), working within a Pluralistic framework, I offer counselling face to face in our meeting rooms or *ONLINE in the comfort and security from your home. As you are the expert on you, together drawing on various counselling modalities we will develop bespoke strategies, that work for you to achieve what you seek from counselling.
*ONLINE: The process is remarkably straight forward, using secure Zoom sessions accessed by clicking a link sent to you via email. However, to work confidentially, you must have a private space where you can be alone and cannot be overheard. If you have mobility issues or are not comfortable getting out in the ‘new normal’ environment, ONLINE counselling may work very well for you. It is also a very convenient medium for all to access counselling.
I am available for face to face and online sessions between 09:15-19:00 on Wednesdays.

Emmy Lathom, BPS no: 486380
I can offer counselling face-to-face or remotely (phone or video) for young people, adults, and couples.
Trained in Psychodynamic Therapy, this is a form of therapy that focuses on unconscious processes that impact on present behaviour, thoughts, and feelings, to enable self-awareness and understanding of the influence of the past on present behaviour.
Training in Systemic Therapy, this form of therapy looks to address people not only on the individual level but also to identify patterns within an individual's relationships. In this type of therapy, the focus in on how an individual is part of a larger unit or system is, for example, a couple, a family, an organisation, or a community.
My main areas of experience have been around working with individuals with learning disabilities, autism, and social-emotional and mental health needs (SEMH), as well as sexual and criminal exploitation.
Other areas of experience include ADHD, attachment, OCD, anxiety, sexual assault, self-confidence, sexuality, and gender identity.
I am available for face to face sessions between 10:30 and 14:00 on Fridays and available for online sessions in late afternoon and evenings on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.

Lisset Burrett, BACP no: 97091 (Registered & Accredited)
Do you think that talking about your difficulties may help? If so I provide Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). However CBT is a little different from other talking therapies. It requires knowing what you want to work on, in between session work, taking responsibility for your desired change and not needing a long term relationship with your counsellor.
