About me

I am an experienced counsellor supporting clients through depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, suicidal thoughts, relationship breakdown, affairs and betrayals, bereavement, anger, loneliness, stress, childhood trauma and abuse as well as finding purpose and passion in life.

You may be seeking counselling for lots of different reasons, feeling anxious, have low mood, be struggling with loss and grief, suffering from stress, have lost touch with your sense of self, or you might just feel that something is off balance and want to explore those feelings. Maybe you want support to reflect on your past and look forward to your future with new hope.

As part of my practice I can also offer Rewind Therapy, which has been used effectively to manage symptoms of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), including single event trauma - such as robbery; road traffic accident; violent attack or sexual assault. Multiple event trauma - these might include combat stress; domestic violence or sexual abuse (where there is more than one occurrence of the traumatic event). 

You don't need to be at breaking point before reaching out for help. Making that first step to ask for support can feel overwhelming and I have so much respect and admiration when that contact is made, you are not alone.

I am here to help you, give you the space to be heard and the chance to flourish. Working together at a pace you feel comfortable with, we can establish a relationship that helps you feel safe, share what is troubling you and increase your trust in yourself and your inner strength. I will walk alongside you during this exploration and unfolding. I am here to help you find your way home to yourself.

What happens next?

The initial chat is offered free, you will be able to outline the issues you wish to work on in counselling and I will answer any questions you have about the counselling process. This chat gives us both the opportunity to see how it would feel to work together - you can sense if you feel safe and comfortable with me and I can let you know if I feel able to help you. If you decide not to pursue counselling with me then you are under no obligation to continue beyond the initial chat.

If you're interested, please do get in touch. I offer a free introductory chat of up to 30 mins for us to explore how working together might feel. Please call me on 074855 01752 or use the contact form to send me an email.

Further information

It was my own experience of the transformational effect of counselling that led me to train as a counsellor. Looking back I realise how important it was for me to be able to speak to someone in confidence who accepted me and my story without judgement. I was given the space to just be me, to share my fears, explore my expectations of myself and to reach a place of acceptance.

I have always been interested in exploring what connects us all and finding that inner sense of self. I can help you explore what connects you to yourself, other people, the world around you - and even beyond. I continue to actively pursue this inner journey myself.

I enjoy being in nature, I find it energises and grounds me and I feel a deep sense of peace when I notice the details of the world around me. I capture my camera snaps on my instagram: @hollingsworthcounselling. I practice meditation and mindfulness in my daily life and find it really beneficial. Mindfulness techniques also help slow down our speeding thoughts, notice where we are holding tension and emotions in our bodies and increase our awareness of our felt experience.

I understand the importance of feeling comfortable and at ease with your therapist. I am human too! I will offer you empathy, I won't judge you and will always be real with you. I will not tell you what to do but together we can work to build your trust in your inner strength and knowledge.
