Counselling and Psychotherapy
Stephanie Hanna Ad. Dip. PsyC MNCS Accred
We can all feel like we're running on empty sometimes; anxious, stressed or depressed. Practicing an Integrative Approach to Counselling and Psychotherapy, I offer confidential 1 to 1 sessions to help individuals talk and work through the difficulties they may be facing in their lives.
As well as experience running my own practice, I also have experience with Place2Be, working with students and young people. I am an Accredited Registrant member of the National Counselling Society.
Support That Makes a Difference
Stress, Anxiety and Depression
Stress, depression and anxiety are some of the most common and uncomfortable emotions that we can experience at some point in our lives. Through counselling and treatment, I aim to help you recover motivation, perspective, and joy that you once had in your life.
Trauma and PTSD
Many individuals can experience symptoms associated with painful and traumatic circumstances. Anxiety, fear, and hopelessness are a few emotions that can linger after traumatic events. Counselling can help you overcome these symptoms and guide you through the process of healing.
Grief and Loss
We can all experience losses in our lives which result in grief feelings.The death of a loved one can be a particularly difficult time and having someone to listen can help enormously. Other losses might include the end of a relationship or a job loss.
We can all benefit from a helping hand and I have experience working with adults of all ages as well as teenagers and young people.
Sessions can be in person or via Skype, to suit the individual.
Each session lasts 50 mins, scheduled to suit. Costs per session are £40. Please note a minimum 24 hour cancellation period is required or charges will apply. Discounts may apply.

Upcoming Awareness Days
Today's world is a busy place and sometimes its good to stop and think about ourselves, others and our place within it. Awareness Days are a way we can all take stock and remember the people and things that are important to us. Not all are relevant to everyone but if something strikes a chord and you'd like to talk it through, please get in touch.
Blue Monday 20 January 2020
Today is often described as Blue Monday. Its cold, dark and for most people, pay day can't come soon enough.
So why not take the time to be especially kind to yourself, whether that's 2 minutes of Mindfulness, an extra large piece of cake or chatting with friends. Whatever you choose, give yourself a break; good enough is good enough.
Christmas holidays 2019
The Christmas season is well and truly upon us and with it it can bring great joy and happiness but it can also bring pressure, stress, sadness and loneliness.
There's pressure to be fun, to join in, to spend money, to buy the perfect gifts, to be the perfect host/ess. Sometimes we don't feel like or aren't able. Please remember that its only one day, none of us are perfect and we can't be all things to all people.
What we can be is kind and that starts with ourselves. So please, if you can do one thing this Christmas, show yourself a little kindness and it will start to radiate out to others.
National Work/Life Balance Week
7-11 October 2019
Today marks the start of National Work/Life Balance Week 2019. Whatever you do for work; full or part-time, studying, looking after family or if you can't or are unable to find employment, it's important to keep a balance in life. Take a moment to look at your typical day.... do you have balance? Do you find it easy to take a break or to be productive? If not, its not too late to make a change. Start small and see where it leads!
World Suicide Prevention Day
10 September 2019
Suicide is an awful thing and sadly it affects too many of us. Unfortunately, the reality is that we will never be able to fully prevent it but help is out there for those who are contemplating this step, for those who are watching someone struggle with these thoughts and for those who are dealing with the consequences of suicide. Please know that you are not alone. If you don't feel you have someone in your life you can talk to, you can phone the Samaritins. Calls are FREE: 116 123.
