I have over twenty-five years’ experience working in the field of well-being as a mental health professional supporting clients with a variety of emotional and psychological difficulties. I have had the opportunity to work with a diverse client demographic and as a result I harbour a deep appreciation of the uniqueness and individuality of my clients and the issues they bring to therapy. My approach to therapy is to respond to my clients as unique individuals and as such over the years I have developed skills that enable me to utilise a variety of therapeutic approaches. I have a particular interest in anxiety, low mood states and addictive behaviour. As a result I have been able to develop skills and resources to enable me deliver a therapeutic programme that facilitates an understanding of the root cause of emotional problems as well as the management of such issues. I work in a holistic fashion which nurtures strengths and individual potential.
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

Re the current Covid-19 situation: A lot of people are turning to online counselling due to Covid-19 self isolation, so if you are looking for an experienced online therapist with specialist training in online therapy please do get in touch.

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, health, carer, student and gender dysphoria issues.

I've plenty of experience of 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.

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

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.
