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 sessions to help either individuals or couples talk and work through the difficulties they may be facing in their lives. I work in a safe, non-judgemental space to help you to move forward to resolve your issues and reach your goals.
All sessions are currently available via Skype, FaceTime or Zoom. due to the Coronavirus.
As well as experience running my own practice, I also have experience with Place2Be as well as working with Uni and College students and people of all ages and walks of life. 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.
Working together, moving forward
Working with couples to help resolve issues, create a better understanding of one another and to build towards your goals.
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, FaceTime or Zoom to suit the individual.
Each session lasts 50 mins, scheduled to suit. Please phone for a free 15 minute initial phone consultation. Costs for individuals per session are £40 and £70 for couples. 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.
World Mental Health Day
Saturday 10th October
The theme of this year's World Mental Health Day is kindness. It's a gift we all have and we can all start with ourselves. You are important! Be kind to you and give yourself a break; sit and breathe, even for 5 minutes and take some of the pressure off yourself.
World Suicide Prevention Day
Thursday 10th September
Suicide is an horrendous part of life but we shouldn't shy away from talking about it. If you're feeling that life has become so overwhelming that there isn't any other option then please STOP! There are so many other ways that will help you and your current situation and it starts with reaching out and telling someone that your struggling; family member, friend, teacher, colleague or anonymous helpline (Samaritans 116 123). Whoever you feel most comfortable speaking to initially is the best place to start.
Please remember; Suicide is not the answer, speaking out is.
Mental Health Awareness Week

This week marks Mental Health Awareness Week with the theme of Kindness. In the midst of the Covid 19 global pandemic it is particularly important that we all look out for one another. Reach out to family, friends and neighbours to see if they're ok.
And please, don't forget to be kind to yourself as well.

Hi everyone, just to let you all know that in these worrying times that therapy sessions are still available but that I will be switching to an on-line service for the time being, whenever possible. Sessions can be held via FaceTime or Skype depending on the platforms that you have.

National Work/Life Balance Week

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!
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.
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.
