Steve Manning - Therapist

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

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 supervise other counsellors and have designed and run several therapy-related workshops.

I offer a warm, therapeutic relationship and a confidential, supportive, respectful and non-judgemental environment in which you can feel safe enough to express your feelings, explore your problems, develop self-awareness and work towards a more satisfying, fulfilling and authentic life.

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

SPECIALIST IN Communication problems • Relationship problems • Trauma • Suicidal thoughts • Self-harm • Domestic abuse • Sexual abuse • Anger • Anxiety • Panic attacks • Guilt • Grief • Loss • Depression • Stress • Obsessive thoughts-compulsive behaviours • Self-esteem and confidence • Existential issues

Through a positive and non-judgmental manner, my aim is to support you to understand your thoughts and emotions, and to help you rediscover or develop the ways or tools you need to be able to deal with the difficulties or challenges you face.

I believe that it is important to find the right therapist for you as this can make a substantial difference to the outcome of therapy. It can feel like a big challenge to take the first step and contact a therapist, but an initial session will provide you with an opportunity to meet me, explore your needs and expectations, and have a conversation about what you could expect from the counselling process.

Then, if you feel it may be of benefit to you, we can discuss further weekly sessions. This may mean arranging a fixed number of sessions or agreeing to work together in a more open-ended way.

I am a BACP accredited psychotherapist, counsellor and clinical supervisor with over ten years’ experience in charitable organisations, private practice and online.

I am also specialised in working with sexuality, sexual health, gender issues and severe mental health problems due to my varied roles in the mental and sexual health sector.
Whatever reason you may want therapy for, I try to create a safe space by focusing on individual experience by setting aside biases, prejudices and assumptions.

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

Whatever you are struggling with - stress, low mood, anxiety, low self esteem, relationships, loss, anger, trauma - I can help you work out what you would like to change and find ways to make those changes.

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

I've worked doing short and long term work via a variety of different services - a low cost counselling service, in the NHS taking referrals from the Depression and Anxiety service, for an NHS Specialist Gender Identity Clinic [for people transitioning], at the University of Exeter, as well as privately online.

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, and I aim to offer a warm, friendly approach to counselling, which most importantly includes listening without judging.

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 a question of finding what works for you.

I also use 'psycho-education' which can help you to understand what mental distress is all about and what might help. I've developed a series of mindmaps to help explain common issues eg anxiety, depression and low self esteem, common problems eg sleep issues, and potentially useful solutions.
Jamie Geary - Therapist

SPECIALIST IN Stress • Trauma • Addiction • Phobias • Anxiety

I'm a counselor and psychotherapist who works with adults and young people. I offer 1-1 and group therapy, Clinical supervision, teaching on counselling courses, online therapy and couples counselling. I have a credible professional reputation in the public service sector and have been working with adults and young people for the last 20 years. I'm also accredited by the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy. My approach is non-judgmental and I offer a secure and nurturing therapeutic space to help you through your difficulties and anxieties at your own pace.

I work with all issues that can cause distress, anxiety and depression that can lead to phobias, addictions, self-destructive emotions which create destructive consequences in life for people. I have a lot of experience of working with the effects of trauma and can help you rebuild a grounded sense of self from the often shattering experience of trauma. Also as I have been working in the field for a long time I have a lot of experience in most areas of difficulty. My service report for my part-time counselling job indicated I have a 86 % success rate.

I believe in allowing people the space to explore what they need in the time they need to do this. People always comment on my warm and nurturing presence and my ability to really understand what they are going through. I believe a lot of problems can make you feel isolated in the world and having some to talk to who truly listens helps you feel acknowledged and accepted.

If you feel this sounds right for you then call me on the number or drop me an email. I will conduct a small telephone referral assessment before we begin the work. In which we will set the time for your first session.

I believe in providing people with the best possible service for their money. That's why I am very disciplined with my own care. As scientific research highlights that the therapist engaged in their own psychological health through mindfulness or other practices similar are more in-tune with their clients empathically.

As a teacher of counselling, I understand that ethically it is important that you are in the best of health so you can support someone else. As it affects the ability to offer the conditions necessary for change to happen.

You pay for a high-quality service when choosing me as your therapist and I will always be genuine and caring and most importantly treat you with respect and dignity.

You will always find me helpful when you email me and from that point on you make the decision yourself.
Emma Doorish - Therapist

SPECIALIST IN Anxiety • Relationships • Self Esteem • Confidence • Phobias • Stress • Abuse • Addictions

I have worked in Valencia, Barcelona, London and now am based in Northern Ireland. I have been studying and working with psychotherapy since finishing my degree in psychology in 2003. In that time I have worked with clients from all over the world and have found myself moving closer towards Solution-Focused Therapy as my therapy orientation. I work both with short and long term clients and make sure that both client and myself are clear on what the best hopes of therapy are. I often use hypnotherapy as a tool and find its benefits far-reaching. It is my total belief that we each have the ability to change and heal and if we can tap into our own resources and power we can take those steps towards change.

Making the decision to attend therapy can often feel overwhelming and confusing. For most people therapy can, however, be an extremely positive and empowering experience that increases greater self-awareness and understanding.

I am a fully accredited and qualified Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist (CBT) with over 8 years of experience and specialise in working with adults. Being fully accredited implies that I have achieved the highest standard in my practice and that I adhere to stringent codes of professional practice and ethical standards.

CBT is an evidenced-based therapy and is recommended by NICE (The National Institute of Clinical Excellence). CBT has been proven to be extremely effective in the treatment of most problems we encounter. Being evidence-based means that I am able to incorporate a wide variety of established and researched psychological techniques in my practise and therapy with you. The effectiveness of these have not only been evidenced by extensive research but also by my own clinical experience of seeing what really helps people.

I have undertaken advanced training in a number of different Cognitive Behavioural Therapy approaches including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT); Compassion-Focussed Therapy (CFT), Couples Behavioural Therapy and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) and Schema Focused Therapy.
I consider you, the client, to be the expert who knows your own problems better than anyone. It is you who gives me insight into understanding the painful issues and difficulties you are experiencing. In your therapy and through increased self-awareness, I will guide, assist and support you to learn to take responsibility for improving the quality of your life by changing unhelpful patterns of behaviours and negative thoughts. I am fully committed to working with you to find realistic and long-term solutions to your problem as well as to develop and apply new skills and techniques.
