Ann Allega - Therapist

SPECIALIST IN AMERICAN EXPATRIATES • ADDICTIONS • WORK RELATED STRESS • RELATIONSHIP ISSUES • EXPATRIATE RELOCATION STRESS • FAMILY DYNAMICS • PTSD • ANGER MANAGEMENT • ANXIETY • DEPRESSION • LOW SELF ESTEEM • ADHD

Hello, my name is Ann and I am a registered member of the BACP. I have significant experience in online counselling and as a result I firmly believe in its benefits. I have done online and phone counselling myself and I found it to be effective. I've worked with lots of people who have never experienced counselling before and I am aware that this can be an anxiety provoking and nervous experience. However, based on my experience I am of the opinion that the release of speaking about something which you may have kept private for a long time is extremely cathartic. If you've come this far, I can offer you confidential and encouraging support through whatever it is you wish to work through. You may not even know what that is! Just that it might be time to talk to someone. My previous career was in the corporate world where I worked for over fifteen years in the beer industry. I'm an American expatriate having first moved to London in 2004. One of my special areas of interest is helping American expats adjust emotionally and psychologically with all the differences they face in the United Kingdom. I know because I faced the same challenges. In addition, I can work with any issue you wish to bring to me. As a registered member of BACP, I am committed to my continual personal and professional development and also work in accordance with their ethical framework for good practice.

I have been practicing as a therapist for 20 years; working initially with substance misuse within a community addictions programme.

For the past twelve years I have worked part-time in a psychiatric hospital, providing both individual psychotherapy and running therapy groups on both the addictions programme and the general psychiatric programme.

I offer face to face, telephone, video and e-mail counselling and I am available for sessions during the day, evenings and on weekends.

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.
