Luis Andrade - Therapist

SPECIALIST IN Anxiety and Mood Disorders • Trauma and Stress-Related Disorders • Personality Disorders

I am a Clinical Psychologist and a registered member of HCPC (Health and Care Professions Council) and OPP (Portuguese Psychologists Association).

I have over 10 years of experience working as a Clinical Psychologist. My professional experience is diverse, ranging from inpatient to community settings. I have experience with depression and mood-related disorders (Bipolar), anxiety disorders (e.g., Social Anxiety, Panic Disorder), and Obsessive-Compulsive Disorders. I have also experience with trauma and stress-related disorders, including Post-Traumatic Stress Disorders, as well as with long-standing and treatment resistant mental health difficulties, including Personality Disorders (Borderline Personality Disorder, amongst other Personality Disorders).

Finally, I have worked in the past with people presenting with eating difficulties, including Anorexia Nervosa.

I am available to work short or long term with clients, taking into consideration the different levels of complexity of different difficulties and presentations.

I provide Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy interventions, including the “third wave” CBT approaches (such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy), as well as schema-therapy based interventions (used generally with treatment-resistant and long-standing difficulties).

Every intervention I offer is tailor-made to the individual client’s needs.
If you have any queries at all about what I offer, please feel free to send me a message. I am happy to help.
Sarah Hudson - Therapist

SPECIALIST IN Depression & Low Mood Disorders; Anxiety/Generalised Anxiety Disorder/Phobias/Panic Attacks; Stress/Anger Management; Trauma/PTSD; Grief/Bereavement; Family/Relationship issues; Addiction - alcohol, prescribed and non-prescribed drugs & Relapse prevention; Self-esteem and Motivation.

My aim is to empower you to get to where you want to be. To help you discover your potential; to overcome your personal obstacles and issues; to improve your relationships.

I have been a therapist for 27yrs and qualified up to masters level. I've worked in various settings including the NHS (hospital and doctors surgeries) and large national charities. This has given me a breath of experience in for example addictions, depression and anxiety disorders, relationship and family issues; self-harm and suicidal behaviour; trauma and bereavement.
Humanistic Person Centred approach has guided my training towards Integrative Psychotherapy. The philosophy that we are all unique fits this model; it recognises the value of you as a unique person and combines elements of other approaches to help you grow and flourish.

The years have taught me that I don't have all the answers although I do have the skills to help you discover yours. I also know that I can sit with you and be with you in your felt sense of anxiety, fear, depression, anger, chaos or loneliness. I strongly believe that you can be empowered to find your own answers.

My passion is in the evolving research of neuro-psychotherapy or brain based therapy. This approach is based in cutting edge brain science - how the brain works, the connection with mind and body, our social interactions and our environment and how we experience all of this - emotionally and behaviourally. Maybe that sounds a lot but basically it just means that it helps me to see the whole of you rather than just one part of you.

Together you and I can work towards discovering ways that help you to arrive at where you want to be. As we adjust to the presence of COVID19, online and telephone sessions offer unique opportunities for you and I to explore and experience how we work together.

Contact me by telephone, text or email to learn more about me and or to explore what you feel you need. Together we will work on strategies that help you to address the root causes of your issues and build your resilience.

Hi I am Ellie and I am a highly experienced and qualified psychotherapist who is based in Hull, East Yorkshire and over the years I have helped a wide range of clients who have experienced different issues.

I am a facilitator of change, and just like scaffolding, I support my client while the delicate restorative work is ongoing. The aim of this process is to help you explore the cause of the issues, support you while you make the necessary adjustments, and then arm you with your own inner resources to continue your recovery journey.

I use the key techniques of Gestalt psychotherapy: symbolic work, two chair work and dream work in a deeply empathetic way.
This is not an exhaustive list, but here are a few of the symptoms that I have helped people with over the years.

• Struggling to carry out day to day activities
• Finding it hard to cope
• Lack of confidence
• Relationship issues
• Struggling to getting up in the morning
• Worrying thoughts & feelings
• Overthinking
• Catastrophizing (Expect the worst will happen)
• Confidence & relationship issues.
• Dealing with a very severe critic
• Low self esteem
• Childhood trauma
• Difficult relationships
• Addictions
• Depression
• Anxiety
• Panic
• Grief
• Trauma surrounding childbirth, miscarriage & post-natal depression

My practice embraces diversity in all its forms and I work keenly with people of all gender identities, sexualities, abilities, ethnic backgrounds, age groups, etc. My choice of profession has been born out of a fundamental desire to help heal people. My mission is to turn my passion for change into supporting my community and a world that I want my own family to grow up in. The work I do is more than just a job to me. It draws upon my natural strengths and has been finely tuned over many years of theoretical and practical experience. My work is also underpinned by my own programme of self-care and continued personal and professional development, to make sure you receive the most dedicated support possible.

I really would love to help you and I provide a nourishing safe and non-judgemental holding space, so you have nothing to worry about. If you would like to book an initial free phone consultation to see if I can help you, please do reach out to me.
Steve Manning - Therapist

SPECIALIST IN STRESS • ANXIETY • DEPRESSION• SELF-ESTEEM • BEREAVEMENT • PHOBIAS • ADDICTIONS • LACK OF CONFIDENCE • RELATIONSHIP ISSUES • COACHING

I offer a counselling relationship within which you feel safe and can explore whatever is causing you distress. With warmth, empathy, humour and respect, I will help you to discover ways of living more resourcefully and authentically, and will try to understand you and your experiences without being in any way judgemental.

I have over eighteen years’ experience as a counsellor, including working in private practice, as a staff counsellor with the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister and other Government departments, with several UK Employee Assistance Providers, in a GP surgery, with the Young Person’s Advisory Service (YPAS) in Liverpool and as an online counsellor. I also work as a counselling supervisor, and have designed and run several therapy-related workshops.

Each counselling session lasts 50 minutes; the number and frequency of sessions is entirely up to you.
Ruth Leaney - Therapist

SPECIALIST IN ANXIETY, DEPRESSION,OBSESSIVE COMPULSIVE DISORDER, LOW SELF-ESTEEM, TRAUMA, ABUSE, ADDICTION, LOSS AND BEREAVEMENT.

I am a qualified psychodynamic psychotherapist (BACP registered) offering individual on line and telephone counselling to adults, the work can be short term or on-going.
My way of working involves thinking about the link between past and present experiences, such as your relationships or how you respond to situations in your life.There could be patterns of behaviour that you have become stuck in and unaware of. There may be something specific that you are struggling with or a general feeling of unhappiness where feelings and thoughts are troubling you and have become overwhelming. I offer a non-judgemental space where we can explore whatever you bring together, at your own pace and in a way which feels safe.
Having this space to recognise and make sense of your experiences can lead to positive change, more freedom and self awareness.
Emma West - Therapist

SPECIALIST IN Depression • Anxiety • Stress • Low self esteem • Abuse • Disability/health issues • Trauma – one off/ongoing/childhood • Carer issues • Loneliness • Relationship difficulties • Gender dysphoria/transitioning • Parenting issues • Managing lifestyle issues

Hi my name is Emma and I have been working solely as an online therapist since 2017. So if you are looking for an experienced therapist with specialist online training please get in touch.

My background of working at the BBC and being a writer means I have a lot of experience of putting people at ease and developing a good rapport. I aim to offer a warm, friendly approach to counselling, which most importantly includes listening without judging.

So whatever you are struggling with - stress, low mood, anxiety, low self esteem, relationship issues, loss, anger, trauma - I will support you in exploring what is going on, help you work out what you would like to change, and work with you to find ways to make those changes.

I also have specialist experience and knowledge of disability, health, carer, student and gender dysphoria issues.

I have plenty of experience of doing long and short term work - even one off sessions - via a variety of different services: a low cost counselling service, in the NHS taking referrals from the local Depression and Anxiety service, for an NHS Specialist Gender Identity Clinic [for people transitioning], and at the University of Exeter, as well as privately online.

As well as doing a lot of listening I use a variety of approaches/techniques in sessions to help you make the changes you want to make, for example: Cognitive Behavioural Therapy [which is about recognising and challenging unhelpful thinking], mindfulness [which is about being in the here and now / relaxation], breathing techniques, and writing exercises - these are just some examples - really it's just a question of finding what works for you.

I also use 'psycho-education' which can help you to understand the natural responses we have when life has been or is difficult. To this end I've developed a series of mind maps to help explain common issues eg anxiety, depression and low self esteem, common problems eg sleep issues, and which also identifies potentially useful solutions for you to try out.

Please message me if you'd like a session on a day/time that doesn't look available on my calendar because I could have availability on other days/times.
