I practice a Humanistic approach to counselling that is non-judgemental and respectful, however I will also draw upon a range of other different therapy models including Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) depending on your individual needs.

Client testimonial:
"We had been reluctant to seek help - and Simon was pretty much our first experience of therapy. from the moment we met, I felt that we were in the safest possible hands. Simon had a wonderfully avuncular manner, is extremely kind, and is generous with his guidance. We dealt with highly sensitive and at times acutely painful issues but somehow Simon's skills enables us to leave his room lighter than when we arrived." AG & SG

The reasons people may seek counselling are numerous and diverse and can include: stress, relationships with others, self esteem, adapting to change, anxiety, abuse, loss, bereavement, redundancy, bullying, depression, sexuality, trauma, addictions, anger, and health.

My aim is to be an independent supportive presence for you. By developing a therapeutic relationship encompassing a process of two way communication emphasising empathy, warmth and genuineness in a safe and non-judgemental environment, I will strive to understand your life from your point of view, helping you to unravel your thoughts and make more sense of any difficulties and relationship issues you may have. I will help facilitate you to understand any issues more clearly so you may find ways to move forward with your life in directions which could be more fulfilling and less distressing for you. You may wish to use creative arts materials as part of your process to bring any issues to a clearer focus and this can be facilitated within your counselling sessions.

About Us. Sinead

Sinead Mitchell

BSSc, Member of HACP

My speciality covers fertility, pregnancy and early parenting. There is so much life changing information about these issues that are just starting to creep into mainstream knowledge. I work from a truly holistic perspective acknowledging that the mind, body and soul are intrinsically connected.

Empowering women to be in their bodies and supported as nature intended throughout pregnancy, labour and postnatal period is vital and forms a wonderful part of my role.

My aim is to show you how to embrace the new changes pregnancy brings for yourself, your relationship and eventually your new family.

Anecdotely through my practice I have seen connections between particular medical challenges and emotional challenges. I support clients to recognise their emotional roadblocks and allow them to release the unwanted and move forward with their family plans. I enlist the support of other practitioners where deemed appropriate to support the physical wellbeing of my clients.

I work with women, alone and/or with their partners. I also support couples becoming parents through alternate means eg. surrogacy or blended families.

About Us. Cheryl

Cheryl Booker

FdA Humanistic Counselling, MBACP
My name is Cheryl and I qualified as a person-centred counsellor in 2008. Over the years I have gained experience working with clients facing many different challenges and stresses; including depression, anxiety, eating issues, phobias, low self-esteem, family/relationship problems, abuse, bereavement, spirituality and feeling lost.
Many of us experience difficult times in life and often it can help to talk about what is going on for us. My goal as a counsellor is to provide a safe, non-judgemental and supportive space for you to explore what is going on for you and talk about whatever you want. Counselling isn’t about telling you what to do, it is all about helping you to make sense of your own experiences and find your own answers so that you may make choices from a more authentic and empowered place.
I offer both short and long term counselling to over 16’s. Please feel free to contact me if you would like more information or to book an appointment.

Even deciding to look for a counsellor to support you through whatever issues you're currently facing is a significant factor in resolving them. Not anyone will do.
