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.
January is proving to be a difficult month once again for many with renewed lockdown restrictions, a lack of work or working from home. For some, home working can be seen as a positive but to others it can prove to be isolating. We can all feel added pressure to start the New Year with resolutions or to change ourselves in some way. January also marks Walk Your Dog month and getting outside, with or without a four legged friend, is so important to our well being and mental health. So, with social distancing in mind, why not try to get outside and enjoy some fresh air every day.

Bullies are people who feel the need to exert their power over others to make themselves feel better. Bullying can be overt and violent or subtle and hidden. If you know someone is being bullied, reach out and see how you can help. This starts with noticing and listening to them. If you’re being bullied, try to reach out to a friend, family member, teacher or doctor. Bullying is not acceptable and you don’t have to suffer.
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
18-24th May 2020
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.
