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.
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.

Andrea Gavin - Therapist

SPECIALIST IN WORKPLACE STRESS • ANXIETY • PANIC ATTACKS • DEPRESSION • SELF ESTEEM AND CONFIDENCE ISSUES • BEREAVEMENT AND LOSS • FAMILY AND RELATIONSHIP ISSUES • ABUSE • ANGER MANAGEMENT • WORK/LIFE BALANCE

Welcome to my profile,

I am passionate about ensuring therapy is accessible, flexible and tailored to each persons individual needs. I have a love of culture and languages having been raised cross culturally in England and Portugal and my interest in psychology started when I was a translator for Street Projects based in Brazil. I completed my professional training in Integrative Psychotherapy in 2008 and chose this form of therapy as it adopts the view that as human beings we are naturally geared towards self-regulation (balance/wholeness) when the right conditions are in place.

I have predominately worked in the NHS, Well-being services and higher education supporting people who have experienced low mood, depression, worry, anxiety, panic as well as supporting people through relationship challenges such as domestic violence, affairs or divorce. Similarly, I work with grief , work related difficulties and other life transitions such as pregnancy, childbirth or other life changing events. Prior clients tell me I am compassionate, honest, culturally sensitive and down-to-earth in my approach.

In addition, I have managed therapeutic teams and services supporting trainee counsellors and therapists working towards accreditation.

I am currently completing my training in Counselling for Depression which is an innovative development in counselling and psychotherapy and focuses on emotional issues underlying depression as well as internal processes such as low self esteem.

Areas I have experience and interest in are:
- emotional and psychological well-being
- personal development
- sadness, sense of feeling stuck, lack of motivation and drive to include clinical
- physical health, isolation and anxiety

Do feel free to message me to explore availability as I have flexibility for daytime, evening and weekend sessions (UK timezone).

My approach to counselling is integrated, meaning that I can work with a combination of theories, Person Centred counselling underpins all of my work, especially when working on an emotional level with my clients. I also use Cognitive Behavioural Therapy techniques and other Humanistic based therapies. I practice both short and long term counselling, regularly review goals along the way, often with short term work I have found that solution based theory is most beneficial.

We will begin to make sense of what's going on in your life and start to develop ways of thinking and behaving to enable you to live your life more fully.

Why Counselling?
People come to see a counsellor for all sorts of reasons. You may be aware that you are suffering from anxiety and/or depression and know that you need counselling to resolve things. But, there are many other reasons for seeing a therapist. You may be clear about what you want from therapy or you may only know that you need support from someone who isn't a friend or family member. It could be that you are feeling overwhelmed by a recent crisis or that a long term problem isn't getting any better. You may be feeling that things from your past are holding you back or that you are stuck in a rut and unable to think of a way out of it on your own. Or you may just know that something isn't right even if you can't quite identify what the problem is.
Stefanos Malais - Therapist

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.
