At Attend2Health our Mental Health Services have expanded and we now have a team of four Counsellors, and EMDR Therapy which can also involve Hypnotherapy and NLP.

Karen Batchelor is a Psychodynamic Counsellor and has been working at Attend2Health for the past year on a Tuesday afternoon. Psychodynamic therapy centres on the origins of emotional suffering.  It is a tool to aid self-reflection and self-examination, using the relationship that develops between the client and the therapist as insight into certain patterns of behaviour that become apparent in the client’s life.

Zoe Hopkinson is a fully qualified, experienced Person-Centred Counsellor and a Registered member of the BACP.  Zoe will be working on a Friday afternoon.  Zoe has a long background in early years and is an advanced specialist qualified to work with children and young people. She is also a qualified adult counsellor who can offer F2F sessions each week. She can offer either long term or short-term sessions. 

Donna Robbie is a qualified Person-Centred Counsellor and is registered with the National Counselling and Psychotherapy Society.  Donna explains how in the past she has felt confused, helpless, hopeless, overwhelmed, lost and disorientated, unsure of where to turn or what to do next. She was helped, supported and encouraged by some fantastic Counsellors and the process was life-changing for her and is the reason she trained to become a Counsellor herself.  Donna will be working on a Saturday morning at Attend2Health.

Amanda Lonergan works with adults as an integrative counsellor which means she incorporates the various disciplines according to my client’s needs. Amanda uses person-centred as her baseline and then draws on Psychodynamic, CBT and Gestalt approaches for example depending on what’s useful/appropriate and how the sessions progress. From time to time she may also include some creative interventions, such as drawing or clay work.  Amanda is also a trained hypnotherapist so hypnotherapy can be included if appropriate.  Amanda currently works on Mondays from the clinic.

Stuart Willis is a hypnotherapist specialising in EMDR Therapy.  EMDR is not a talking therapy so it’s particularly good if you have something very private to deal with that you would rather not discuss or talk about, EMDR works on treating feeling and emotions so is very confidential.  It has been shown to help treat trauma, PTSD, and other mental health issues and is recognised by NICE.

Every counselling session is £50 for 50 minutes.  To make an appointment we ask that you contact the Counsellors directly to ensure you can get a time to suit your needs.
