Should you be unsure whether or not we offer support for your problem(s) then please do contact us either by telephone or the contact us page of this website as we are unable to list all of our specialties below.

Child and adolescent issues
Our Director has over 15 years specialist experience working as a clinical psychologist in child and adolescent mental health services (CAMHS) both in the NHS and private practice.   This includes working with looked after children, young people with behavioural difficulties including conduct disorder, oppositional defiant disorder (ODD) and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).  We also help with childhood depression, generalized anxiety, severe attachment difficulties and work with children on the Autistic Spectrum.

Emotional difficulties
Both children and adults seek psychological counselling and therapy for a wide range of distressing emotional issues.  We offer support with many different emotional issues including depression, post-natal depression, bipolar disorder, generalized anxiety, phobias, panic attacks, agoraphobia and social anxiety.  Sometimes emotional difficulties have an obsessive or compulsive element and we provide support to individuals experiencing eating disorders such as anorexia nervosa, bulimia and binge eating disorder.

Loss issues
Individuals, couples and families seek professional psychological support from us in coming to terms with a wide range of losses that are life-changing and from which they find it difficult to move on.  We support clients who have suffered bereavement as a consequence of a miscarriage, death of a child, partner or other relative by providing psychological counselling and therapy sessions which specifically address these difficult issues.  Our divorce and separation service also offers support to children and adults after the breakdown of a marriage or personal relationship including counselling for children experiencing emotional difficulties and consultation services for parents regarding contact issues between the child and non-custodial parent.

Addictive behaviours
We provide psychological counselling and therapy to support individuals and couples living with a range of addictions.  We understand that addictions have a destructive impact which  affects  all aspects of individuals’ lives and relationships preventing them from achieving their potential.  We offer psychological counselling and therapy to individuals and couples   affected by alcohol dependence, illegal drug use, dependence upon prescription drug medication and compulsive gambling.

Obsessive behaviour problems
Children and adults seek professional support from us with a range of obsessive and compulsive behaviours which prevent the full enjoyment of their lives. The obsessive psychological difficulties with which we provide psychological counselling include trichotillomania (obsessive hair pulling), pica (eating non-food items) and obsessive compulsive disorder.  We are also able to support individuals whose obsessive behaviour is secondary to a primary psychological condition such as Aspergers Syndrome.

Personal relationship issues
We provide psychological couple counselling to adults involved in both heterosexual and homosexual relationships experiencing a wide range of marital and personal relationship difficulties.  Our couple counselling service supports couples experiencing personal relationship difficulties as a consequence of affairs and betrayals, domestic violence, cross-cultural issues, substance dependence and mental health problems.  We also support clients experiencing identity issues.

Pregnancy support
We understand that pregnancy can be a time of significant psychological stress for some individuals, couples and families particularly when the pregnancy is unplanned.  We recognise that both males and females can experience emotional difficulties and are sensitive to the needs of both genders.   We offer independent, unbiased psychological counselling to individuals and couples seeking to decide whether or not to continue with a pregnancy and post-abortion counselling to individuals and couples experiencing emotional and relationship difficulties.

Infertility and miscarriage
We provide an empathic psychological counselling and therapy service to individuals and couples whose lives are affected by infertility and miscarriage. Our psychological couple counselling and therapy services are able to address the impact of infertility on the couple relationship.  Sadly some individuals and couples experience the trauma of miscarriage or repeated miscarriage. We offer a sensitive and individualized psychological counselling and therapy service including meeting with you in your own home by prior arrangement.

Life Transitions
We provide psychological counselling and support to adults seeking to move forward at times of important psychological transition in their lives. We offer counselling to young adults coming to terms with past childhood issues or psychological trauma which often come to the fore when individuals establish independence away from their family of origin. We also offer counselling and consultation to adults seeking to move forward and pursue new opportunities after personal relationship breakdown, redundancy or retirement.

Personality Disorders
We understand how difficult it can be to receive accurate NHS diagnosis and treatment for long term difficulties such as personality disorders which have a lasting impact on your relationships and emotional well being. Often people have coped with such difficulties alone. We offer our clients the option to receive accurate psychological assessment of personality and other emotional difficulties which includes a psychological report and treatment recommendations at a reasonable price. We also offer psychological therapy for personality difficulties.
