Vicki Kearney

I am a qualified integrative counsellor with experience of handling many mental health issues. My experience comes from working in both the charitable and private sector, offering affordable counselling for clients from a diverse range of social, cultural and ethnic communities. I work from a client centred approach and will draw upon different therapies (cognitive behavioural therapy, psychodynamic, humanistic and gestalt) depending on the needs of my client.

I believe in working together to understand what is going on for you, to come to terms with painful experiences and to find ways to change your patterns of behaviour and develop an understanding and self-awareness to move forward with confidence. As your therapist, I will be part of the process to guide, support and ensure that you are able to find the answers you are looking for.

I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and I work in accordance with their ethical framework. Like all registered therapists I am in regular professional supervision with an experienced qualified supervisor.

I am currently working with adults predominantly online using zoom or by telephone due to Covid restrictions but can offer some clients face to face therapy here at the ETNA centre if appropriate. You have taken the first step, now feel free to give me a call to discuss how I might help you to work through the difficulties you are experiencing.

Natalie Freeman

I am a qualified and registered counsellor and have worked in private practice for over 5 years.

I believe in an approach which tailors the therapy to the client as each person is unique and so I use a combination of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Person-centred and Psychodynamic approaches depending on your needs.

We will work together to discover the root of your issue and help to create a better understanding of it. This will provide you with the opportunity to make positive changes in your life and help you to move forward. Sessions can be weekly or fortnightly, face to face or on the telephone. I work with individuals on an open-ended basis or for an agreed time period.

I am a registered member of the BACP and as such, work within their ethical framework.

Please feel free to contact me to discuss whether counselling is right for you and how I may be able to help you.

Paula Lopes

I am an experienced qualified integrative counsellor, I offer a non-judgemental approach with empathy and integrity as well as a safe space for you to be heard and empowered.

Your past informs your present and together we can understand meanings and recognise patterns of behaviour providing you with greater self-awareness about your past, your relationships with self and others and to explore options for the future.
Counselling in essence is a path to your discovery of self. Your life doesn’t get better by chance, it gets better by choice.

I have experience in working with adults as well as children and young people as I worked for a number of years at Place2be (, a charity counselling service that provides support in schools, to children between the ages of 4 years olds and teenagers. I had over a year of specialized training with male and female victims of domestic and sexual abuse as well as perpetrators.

I also worked with a group of potential counsellors attending level 2 of therapeutic Counselling course in Richmond Community College, where I co-facilitated their processes, skills and theories.

As a registered member of the BACP ( British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) I practice within the guidelines of their code of Ethics and Practice.
