Jeremy Goodman ~ Registered Member MBACP
Hi, I'm Jeremy, I offer short and long-term counselling and psychotherapy for a range of issues, from day-to-day worries to complex psychological conditions.
As people struggle to make sense of their situation they are frequently overwhelmed by the seemingly conflicting information that surrounds them. I specialise in helping individuals find clarity of meaning in their lives. I have worked as an alcohol recovery counsellor and as a psychotherapist in the public sector, I also work with depression, anxiety, eating problems and much more.
You may be living very painful life experiences, suffered affects of abuse and neglect both as children and adults. You may be carrying the stigma and shame of traumatic life experiences. Whatever you present to me you can be sure that I will not judge you, you will be listened to sensitively and treated with respect. I provide a comfortable setting in a welcoming safe environment for you to explore your thoughts and feelings.
Knowing what to do next can be difficult.
As your counsellor, I will help you to examine your emotional life and explore any underlying issues, any behavioural or relationship difficulties that you are presently facing or that may be causing problems. My aim is to support you in make the necessary decisions that will improve your personal well-being, and to help you find ways to deal with whatever is holding you back in life.
You may know you need help, yet have no idea who to speak to, or what it is you actually need. The thing is, when you’re finding life difficult, keeping things to yourself is unlikely to help. So why not give me a call and let's discuss how I can help.

More than ever before, people are discovering the benefits of speaking with a professionally trained counsellor. Communicating our hopes and fears should help us to get our ideas into perspective and gain more clarity. Talking seems a simple human act, yet the complex pressures placed upon individuals lives and the people around them often lead to a breakdown in communication and cause so much misunderstanding.
There are many reason why people seek counselling. Anxiety and depression are increasingly recognised as widespread phenomena which are treatable without the use of medication. Counselling is now widely recognised as having far greater and more lasting benefits than the drug alternative. Understanding the underlying nature of our problems allows us to take control of the symptoms. Counselling provides a moment in time to reflect and explore the reasons we have arrived at our present.
