WOMEN, YOUNG PEOPLE, GAY, LESBIAN, BI AND TRANSGENDER ISSUES, CONFIDENCE AND SELF-ESTEEM, PANIC ATTACKS AND ANXIETY.

My approach (Person-Centered) puts you at the heart of our time together and allows you to work at a pace which is comfortable for you. I use other methods and tools when appropriate, including individually designed creative and resources and information to support you on your journey.

Children and young people receive therapeutic support through creative and play therapy to promote their emotional well-being.

I am experienced at working therapeutically with women with a range of emotional health difficulties from bereavement, through sexual, emotional and physical abuse and relationship problems to low self-esteem and lack of confidence

I work with men and women on issues such as anxiety, panic attacks, depression, lack of confidence, stress, relationship difficulties, bereavement and more.

Supporting self-esteem, confidence and a clearer recognition of your unique worth as a human being is central to my approach.

‘It is my belief that the best wisdom for ourselves comes from within us, and that truly meaningful change comes from knowing, understanding and accepting ourselves and finding answers which are meaningful for us.’

‘My vision is to promote emotional well-being, which I define as accepting, understanding and loving all parts of ourselves, being comfortable within our world, having rewarding relationships with others and having inner strength, resources and resilience to cope when life is challenging.’

Sean Lowden

Sean Lowden (BA degree in Counselling & MBACP) worked for over thirty years in the marketing sector, both home and abroad, before becoming qualified as a Counsellor in June 2013.
His extensive experience and person-centred training enables him to establish an immediate trusting and transparent relationship with clients. Once a working alliance is established and clients feel understood and heard, he then works on developing a therapeutic alliance to allow clients to explore themselves on a deeper psychodynamic level, or for some, it may be on a cognitive level to dissipate irrational thoughts and behaviours. His interaction with clients is professional, friendly, highly relational and hopeful.

Victoria Neil (MBACP)

The main focus of my training and my work with clients comes from the principles of the Person-Centred approach and Gestalt Therapy. This means that I look at you as an individual, I don’t try to fit you into a box or label. I tailor the therapeutic work to the client, supporting you as you endeavour to make the right decisions for you.
I work with both adults and children. My work with adults involves exploring emotional and psychological difficulties an individual is experiencing for example depression, anxiety, bereavement & loss, stress ,trauma, low self esteem, relationship problems and more .
Working in a school for a national children’s charity, I aim to provide emotional and therapeutic support for children aged 4-11, who have been identified as needing support to build and maintain friendship, suffering from bullying, low self-esteem, family breakdown, witnessed or survived violence and abuse. I also have experience of co-facilitating therapeutic group work for young children of primary school age, working with children around attachment, self- esteem and managing emotions.
In addition, I have experience of coaching individuals living with mental health issues and can bring aspects of coaching into the therapy room if a client chooses.
