Chris Roberts – Affordable Rate Counsellor (online)
Why Seek Counselling?
You might be experiencing loss or bereavement, or undergoing changes in your home life, work, relationships, or health. You might be living with uncomfortable feelings like stress, anxiety, depression, anger, or sadness. Or you might be feeling a certain way, but not be able to articulate why.
I can help you understand what’s going on for you right now by providing a confidential place to talk, without any judgement. In this way, we can work together at your pace, to understand what you need from counselling and find a way to move forward.
In my twenties, after an unexpected life event, I discovered the benefits of talking to a professional and went on to qualify as a counsellor.
My work is with adults over 18, and I’m committed to breaking down barriers between people due to outdated preconceptions around race, religion, gender, nationality, sexual orientation, physical difference, disability, or non-visible differences.

Joanna Vinall – Affordable Rate Counsellor (online)
People choose psychological therapy for many different reasons. You may have been diagnosed with a mental health problem or struggling with negative habits, indecision or low self-confidence. Or you may just feel stuck and unable to move forward. The fact that you are reading this means you have already taken the important first step to deal with your problems.
My aim as a therapist is to provide you with a collaborative, non-judgemental and empathic way space to make sense of your difficulties and to enable you to move forward in life.
I have a degree in Psychology and I am an NCS accredited integrative cognitive-behavioural therapist. This means that I mainly work from a cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) perspective but also draw upon other approaches such as Acceptance & Commitment Therapy, Compassion Focused Therapy, and Mindfulness, to tailor session to meet your needs. CBT is a model of therapy where you learn to understand your feelings and emotions about events in your life, to identify and examine the thinking patterns that are taking place and how they may impact on your behaviour. CBT is used extensively in the NHS and research has shown that CBT is the most effective form of treatment for those coping with depression and anxiety.
I work online, you can contact me by email at firstname.lastname@example.org and mobile on 07973 790180
Pablo Reina Martinez
Perhaps you wake up feeling that even that you are trying your best you feel bad. That whatever efforts you are putting to live a positive life are not working and this leaves you feeling confused.
Perhaps you don’t know why you feel so anxious, stressed, negative, angry, ashamed or in a frequent low mood. Maybe you are tired of putting effort in improving things and you feel at odds with yourself, reacting to events in a way that is far from your real version. Perhaps you no longer feel happy and at ease with yourself, your relationships and the activities you focus on.
We all go through phases were our emotions and thoughts seem to work against us, to pull us in a downward spiral.
I know I have experienced that many times, and this has forced me to reach out to others. Doing so is not an act of weakness, but an act of maturity, it means we admit sometimes life is hard and that sometimes we face situations for which we don’t feel enough. This is normal part of growth and necessary for psychological development. An opportunity to improve the connection we ourselves which will move us certainly to better times and opportunities.
Counselling is designed to facilitate this process, to make it easier and more rewarding for you. We can all find a way to cope in isolation, but we are not built to thrive in isolation. My aim is to accompany you in the process of learning and transcending your current issues. I have worked helping individuals like you for more than 3 years and I truly love this process of helping people move from pain to a renewed sense of wellbeing. Just like other therapist have helped me do before.
I invite you to get in touch with me, and to start your journey to a positive mental health that will surely affect all areas of your life.

Fatima is a Cognitive Behaviour Therapist (CBT) with and advanced diploma and is a member of the National Counselling Society.
Fatima’s aim is to help you to reach your potential and support you to transform personal challenges into life enhancing opportunities. This is achieved by providing a neutral, confidential non-judgemental safe space, listening to your concerns and customising a therapeutic plan that suits your situation.
Cognitive Behaviour Therapy is supported by a wealth of research, is used extensively by the NHS and recommended by NICE (National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence), for many emotional and psychological problems.
CBT stresses that we all have a capacity for creating, altering, and controlling our emotional states. It places emphasis on examining currently-held attitudes, painful emotions, and unhelpful behaviours that can sabotage a happier experience of life. It helps people to develop a philosophy and approach to living that can increase their effectiveness and happiness in many areas of life.
Do you suffer with anxiety or depression, have you suffered trauma and feel you are not living your life to its full potential? Are you highly sensitive and feel easily overwhelmed ? Do you struggle with grief of the stresses of today’s society? I have worked therapeutically with clients for over twenty five years and also have many years’ experience in education in the special needs sector using music as a medium. I hold a space for you without judgment as well as focusing on your unique creative potential. We are exposed to many different stresses these days. I listen carefully to help you identify recurring themes and the way you relate to people and the world.
I work with adults, teenagers and children. I have a foundation degree in humanistic integrative counselling and a PGCE in education. My background working creatively means I integrate this knowledge with my psychological expertise. I am experienced in body-based therapy and can also offer outdoor therapy and equine assisted therapy with my beautiful gentle ponies. Equine assisted therapy offers a unique way of understanding yourself through your connection with the horses.
Throughout my life I have worked with people to support them to achieve their creative potential. I am a caring, sensitive person and approach problems calmly, with empathy and humour where required. I believe that nature can be transformative and love working outdoors as well as in the therapy room.
I am fluent in English, German and Italian. Ich spreche fließend Englisch, Deutsch und Italienisch. Parlo correntemente inglese, tedesco e italiano.
You can contact Ina at firstname.lastname@example.org
I see the counselling hour as a precious time for you, to speak about whatever is important to you, without being judged. It is your time. I will be alongside you, working to create a space for you to explore your fears, anxieties, troubling thoughts, losses, addictions, habits, future plans, hopes, or anything else.
My approach is person-centred, and I have a background in peer-to-peer therapy. In practice this means I am passionate about creating an equal relationship which empowers you. I believe my job is to facilitate your own self-understanding, to build a relationship in which your own wisdom unfolds and promotes your growth. Emotional problems occur when we cannot come to an acceptance of difficult feelings or experiences. Counselling gives you a chance to process those feelings or experiences, in your own time.
In my own experience, I found the counselling process did unburden me and lead to greater opportunities for growth, maturity and fulfilment of potential.
I currently offer sessions on Zoom or over the phone. You can contact Lucy here email@example.com
You may be exploring therapy because of a specific long-term problem, a crisis, or a more general sense of wanting to understand yourself and grow. I am here to see you as the individual you are, to listen to you without judgment, and to support you as you work through challenges past and present.
What led me on my journey to become a counsellor? I would say my own difficult past, I felt lost and confused for quite some time and didn’t know where to turn. Eventually I reached out and began therapy myself, I began to see more clearly, and things started to make more sense. The difference having therapy made to my life made me realise how much I wanted to help others overcome their difficulties.
I feel my personal experiences would help me to connect with you at a much deeper level.
Tina (Person-Centred Counsellor)
“I am isolated. I sit in a glass ball; I see people through a glass wall. I’m screaming, but they don’t hear me.’ (Carl R. Rogers, A Way of Being.)
I don’t want you to feel isolated or unheard. I am here to walk alongside you wherever your journey, your path will guide you. I can provide you with an unjudgmental, secure and confidential space where you can find the time to explore what is important to you, to connect with your feelings and to establish new connections with the real you. I can work with anxiety and depression, loneliness, stress problems as well as people who suffer with or from drug abuse.
Tina (Person-Zentrierte Beraterin)

“Ich bin isoliert. Ich sitze in einer Glaskugel; Ich sehe Menschen durch eine Glaswand. Ich schreie, aber sie hören mich nicht.”
Ich möchte nicht, dass Sie sich isoliert oder ungehört fühlen. Ich bin hier, um an ihrer Seite zu gehen, wo immer ihre Reise, ihr Weg Sie führen kann. Ich kann Ihnen einen sicheren und vertraulichen Raum bieten, in dem Sie die Zeit finden, das zu erkunden, was für Sie wichtig ist, mit Ihren Gefühlen in Kontakt zu treten und neue Verbindungen mit dem realen Sie herzustellen. Ich kann mit Angst und Depression, Einsamkeit, Stress-Probleme sowie mit Menschen arbeiten, die mit oder unter Drogenmissbrauch leiden.
Hello, my name is Asha and I am a qualified person-centred counsellor.
There are times in life where we can feel numb or unable to focus, on what’s going on in the present. Perhaps a feeling of being pulled by the past or having anxiety on the future unknowns.
I offer a no judgement space, where I will offer empathy and understanding. Person-centred counselling is at the heart of building up a therapeutic relationship, whereby we will go where you want and at your own pace.
I have personally found person-centred counselling to be incredibly healing and I hope that in our time together, you will feel that you can lead and feel safe to explore what comes up for you.
I offer both short-term and long-term counselling, and currently work with over-18s only.
Do you feel overwhelmed and struggle to cope with everyday life?

Counselling will enable you to clarify your feelings and better understand why you feel that way. This is a journey which can be challenging but extremely effective, benefiting you and allowing you to look into the future with optimism.

final year trainee counsellors - £15
Rebecca Luzi (Trainee Counsellor)
I understand that seeking support can be very daunting and I believe that trust is central to building a successful therapeutic relationship so I aim to provide a warm, empathic, non-judgemental space where we can explore in confidence what brings you to counselling.
My approach is integrative – drawing from a range of different approaches and finding the approach that works best for you. I believe that the relationship between counsellor and client is crucial to the success of the work and therefore offer an initial session where you can meet me, we can explore your expectations and needs, and you can get a sense of whether I am the right person to work with you before making any ongoing commitment.
I have experience of working with a range of issues and have a particular interest in working with anxiety, depression, eating disorders and adverse childhood experiences.
I am in the final term of a degree in Integral-Relational Counselling, qualifying in July and have two years experience of working with clients. I am a student member of the BACP.
Kimberly (Trainee Counsellor)
Losing someone or something you love can be extremely difficult to come to turns with, the grieving process is long and you often feel as though people don’t understand how you are feeling. You may put on a mask to cover these feelings and try to carry on with life the best you can. Keeping in these feelings in can build up inside and you can start to feel overwhelmed. It can also have an effect on your day to day living. There is no timeline on grief and people can have different experiences and cope with it differently. Always remember there is no right or wrong way to grieve.
Perhaps you are feeling ‘lost’ but you can’t quite understand why? Or your anxiety levels have risen lately? Or perhaps you just do not feel like you anymore and you want to start to get the real you back again.
Whatever your reason for seeking counselling it’s important to know that Talking has an incredible healing power. Counselling allows you to Speak to someone who doesn’t make you feel judged or ashamed and gives you a safe space to express yourself.
I am currently a counsellor trainee with the University of Trinity Saint David, Swansea. I am also a qualified solution focused hypnotherapist in which I underwent my training in the Clifton Practice, Bristol. I have experience working within mental health services and the domestic abuse service, and am a member of the BACP.
Our counselling sessions will be made online via zoom which allows you to speak to me from the comfort of your own home or a space where you feel comfortable to talk.
Kate (Trainee Counsellor)
Are you feeling like it’s a challenge to feel truly heard? Maybe you’re worried about the stigma attached to mental health and reaching out for help? Sometimes just the ability to be heard by another can be incredibly empowering. I firmly believe that hard times in life should never have to be endured alone, and I’m passionate about ending the stigma attached to mental health.
Every year one in four of us will experience a mental health problem, but that doesn’t have to stop us from enjoying life. Maybe you feel weighed down by academic pressures and demands, or you’re feeling overwhelmed in the workplace? I have experience of providing mentoring and support to university students, and can empathise with the challenge of balancing positive mental and emotional wellbeing with the stresses and pressures that come with life. Whatever you’re feeling right now, counselling can provide a safe space to explore your feelings and emotions.
I am currently in my final year of my Counselling Diploma. My work is underpinned by the Person-Centred Approach, which means I will endeavour to provide a safe, warm, and non-judgemental space for you to explore whatever you’d like to bring to each session, without giving advice or telling you how to live your life. Our sessions will always be led by you, at your unique pace. As your counsellor I will never claim to be the expert of your life, but help you to recognise your own capacity for personal growth.
Saida (Trainee Counsellor)
“Am I living in a way which is deeply satisfying to me, and which truly expresses me?” (Carl. Rogers)
Stress, depression, anxiety – words we hear more and more these days. Indeed, you may have been diagnosed with one of these. I believe behaviour and reactions do not exist in isolation: behind every behaviour, there lies a story. You are not broken, there isn’t something wrong with you. Often it means you are struggling with something you can’t begin to articulate.
I work in an integrative way – a blend of person centered, CBT and psychodynamic. I have worked as a Mental Health and Wellbeing mentor to university students, and as a Mental Health support worker in the charity sector. The most common issues are: anxiety, stress, depression, relationship issues, low self-esteem, social anxiety, low self-confidence, loss and grief.
Now, in the final stages of my counselling/psychotherapy training, I value the human connection I look forward to establishing with you. To see you as an individual with your own unique desires and values, and to be alongside you in expressing yourself and growing into the person that you want to be. Where you can feel respected, understood and valued – to explore your feelings and emotions at your own pace.
Esthefanía (Trainee CBTCounsellor)
Maybe life seems too overwhelming for you at the moment, and you don’t enjoy what you are used to, or the anxiety you are feeling is making life harder. My name is Esthefanía, and I am a CBT trainee counsellor. Together we can explore what is troubling you, get clarity and learn effective ways to deal with the difficult parts of life.
I offer a non-judgemental, confidential and warm space where you can talk about your current problems and difficulties.
Rex (Trainee CBT Counsellor)
Are you feeling emotionally stuck?
What do I mean?
A crippling worry about upcoming challenges? Viewing life with a level of hopelessness/ helplessness? Seeing threats to your relationships? Feeling uncontrollably frustrated?
Are you wondering why? What can I do next? How can I help myself?
I’m a trainee CBT therapist who will help you understand and unlock these questions and emotions. While we cannot stop bad things from happening in life, we can learn to be rational in our thinking and experience negativity with a greater sense of ease and manageability. Accessing new sustained levels of contentment and happiness.
While this type of therapy has structure and process, the direction will be dictated by yourself. The aim will be to step deeper into your thinking and identify the limiting irrational attitudes held at the root of your emotional discomfort. They’re subtle. But once found, the task then becomes to restructure those attitudes into their rational form and integrate them into your everyday being.
The therapeutic journey is not straightforward, somewhat lifelong, and will be filled with all sorts of obstacles. However, I will be there to support you through our sessions and will be equipping you with the tools to become your own therapist.
Zoe (trainee counsellor)
We all experience challenges in our lives, and we all deserve support in processing and moving through difficult times and emotions. If you’re feeling overwhelmed, stuck, anxious, or perhaps finding relationships and work challenging, therapy can offer a safe and confidential space in which to explore these feelings and patterns of behaviour, helping you to make sense of your experiences. Having a regular time that is dedicated to you in a non-judgemental and compassionate space can facilitate your self-understanding and give you insight into your own emotional landscape.
As a trainee in integrative transpersonal counselling, I draw on a range of approaches to help you feel safe in sharing your story and making sense of your experiences. I am led by you, and we move at the pace you are comfortable with, giving you the opportunity to define your own journey. The transpersonal element of my work means that we can weave in larger themes around spirituality, the natural world and intergenerational history. This enables you to interpret yourself and your experiences in the context of a wider picture.
My own journey with therapy gave me a real appreciation for the value of an empathetic, non-judgmental relationship, in which I could feel truly seen. This is exactly what I aim to create with my clients.
Richard (Counsellor in Training)
You may know exactly what you want from therapy, or you may find it difficult to articulate clear goals. Both are OK and welcome in therapy.
If you are experiencing anxiety, stress, depression, grief, low self-esteem, difficultly with relationships, or unhelpful patterns of thoughts, feelings, or behaviours, then you can use therapy to work through the underlying trauma, in a way that works for you.
Difference may matter to you because you feel different in some way, or it may be significant to a relationship that matters to you. I have experience of neurodivergence. Your therapy can include the building of a healthy understanding of difference, and how to understand and relate to others. Acknowledging difference, and then building a relational bridge with which to connect.
We can explore what matters to you in an environment where it is safe, you are welcome, and you feel supported. Where you can experience relationship without stigma or shame.
I work with adults 18 and over. I offer counselling and psychotherapy, and am currently training in Transactional Analysis. I use that to offer you a combination of classical and relational approaches, working intuitively and interpersonally within a therapeutic relationship to heal trauma.
