I am Patricia (Trisha), an experienced specialist counsellor, trainer and clinical consultant.
I have specialist experience of working with adults, children, young people and families in the NHS, education, voluntary organisations and private practice. I have worked with clients with a range of issues that affect their day to day well-being and cause distress .
I offer sensitive, professional support and and expertise bringing a wide range of skills to ensure tailored support specific to your needs.
For some people, it can feels as if life has always been tough and is one long slog- others are more fortunate but they too will experience major incidents or life stresses and not all will have skills and resilience to manage them.
Either way, skilled and supportive therapy and counselling can a major difference and lead to a more productive, satisfying and fulfilling life.
In modern life it is not unusual to experience difficulties as we try to deal with the challenges in life, including: the effect of a significant bereavement and complex grief reactions, serious and life-limiting illness, major life change, adoption, redundancy, divorce, separation or relationship conflict and difficulties, negative early life experiences and work related stress.
This can cause us to experience anxiety reactions, depression and low mood, eating and sleep difficulties, negative behavior, poor social and intimate relationships and general lowered emotional health and well-being.
How I work:
I believe that all clients- regardless of age or circumstances deserve a service that gives best practice, information, advice and support based on their individual situations and latest research; I will discuss your situation and needs and then work with you to create a bespoke package of support. I will use a variety of approaches tailored to suit you and aimed at helping you develop new insights and personal resourcefulness.
For most people in only 6 sessions can help them identify underlying difficulties, explore new strategies and apply them to their lives- for some they need a little longer but the aim is to be able to make long lasting changes that help you get the best out of life!

I have full enhanced CRB clearance, have regular safeguarding training and considerable expertise working with children and teenagers at risk of harm. As a registered member of BACP I abide by their code of ethics and have regular mandatory supervision.
