Liberate Counselling

I am an integrative counsellor serving the South Yorkshire area, using private therapy rooms near the M1 between Rotherham and Barnsley, and also via telephone or online counselling. My main areas of expertise include anxiety, depression, relationship problems, anger and male issues.

Are any of the following affecting your relationships, home or work life?

  • Anxiety - social anxiety, generalised anxiety disorder (GAD) and panic attacks
  • Depression - bipolar disorder ('manic depression') and seasonal affective disorder
  • Anger
  • Guilt
  • Shame
  • Men's issues
  • Bereavement
  • Relationships
  • Low self-esteem
  • Workplace stress
  • Domestic abuse

Anxiety and depression are the most common mental health problems in the UK (National Institute for Health and Care Excellence, 2016) and also the issues I come across the most in this work.

Male Counsellor

Recently though, I am seeing more men coming to counselling, and as a male counsellor I understand the pressures you might feel because I feel them too.

Whatever problems you have, whoever you are, my aim is to help you explore your thoughts and feelings so you can make sense of everything and see yourself and the world in a different light.

Integrative Counsellor

This means that I have more than one approach and tailor the therapy to your needs. I use Person-Centred, Gestalt, Existential and Solution-Focussed theories to help you find a more holistic perspective.

Professional Standards

I adhere to the Ethical Frameworks of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and the Association for Counselling and Therapy Online so that your counselling is effective and safe, and so that I offer you professional standards of work.

Appointments Available

Why go on a waiting list for weeks or even months when you could begin your therapy within a few days of contacting me?

The Road to Recovery?

It might be hard to imagine from where you are now, but the fact you are looking for professional help is a positive step.
