About me and my therapy practice

Hello and a warm welcome to Counselling with Mallory.

I am Mallory. I am a qualified integrative counsellor, specializing in working with young people aged 11-25. I am registered with the BACP, fully insured and DBS checked. I attend monthly supervision with a BACP Accredited Supervisor, and quarterly supervision with Trauma Informed Schools (TIS) supervisor to review and support my work.

After studying Psychology at University, I fell in love with psychology, the mind, and link between our thoughts, emotions and behaviour. I became interested in learning about how a persons experiences, particularly during childhood and adolescence, go on to impact and shape them later in to adulthood. Today, adverse child experiences (ACEs) & trauma during childhood (& adolescence) and mental health difficulties in adulthood is well documented and one of reasons I am so passionate about working with young people and supporting to both manage and improve their emotional wellbeing and mental health. I have over 12 years experience working therapeutically with young people. I have worked supporting young people across primary, secondary and post 16 education, as well as, working with clients in alternative and specialist provisions.

I completed my training at the London Institute of Arts in Psychotherapy and Education (IATE). In addition to being a counsellor, I am also a qualified Trauma Informed & Mental Health Practitioner with Trauma Informed Schools (TISUK) & Mental Health First Aider. I have also recently become a qualified freelance trainer for Trauma Informed Schools (TISUK) and I am very much looking forward to sharing my passion and knowledge with future delegates.

Practice description

If you are reading this, you (or a young person you are supporting) may be looking for early intervention, experiencing some difficulties or changes you wish to seek support for or, feel as though you (they) are at crisis point. Of course, if you are struggling with emotional or mental health difficulties, counselling can help, but the truth is, you don't need a reason to seek help. Counselling can help you reach your full potential at any point in life, and it is always better to address issues early, before they become overwhelming. As a counsellor, I am trained to work with people who are struggling with psychological or emotional difficulties. My motives are simple. I have a genuine desire to help. I want to listen, to understand you and your experiences and see the world through your eyes. Only then can we begin to explore together, what is troubling you, in a safe and confidential space.

My first session

Free No Obligation Consultation Phone Call

Once contact has been made through the contact form, you will receive a confirmation email. From here I will arrange a 15-30min free no obligation phone call where we can introduce ourselves and I get to know a little bit about about the help and support you feel you may need.

The First Session (Assessment Session)

The first session will give us the opportunity to meet either online or face to face. This gives us the opportunity to view how we may work together and ensure you are happy to proceed. The assessment session gives us both the opportunity to see where you are at, and look at the issues you feel you may need support with. The assessment allows us both to ask questions and set out a plan for our work together. 


Sessions are a planned, regular time, that allow you explore life events, thoughts, feelings, emotions and behaviour, in whatever way you feel free to express yourself. It is your time, your space to explore whatever is going on for you, without judgement or question, in a safe and confidential space. Sessions are completely guided by you, how you feel and what you want to share.

Session Review (approx. 6 weeks)

After approx. 6 weeks a session review may be planned in, in order for us both to reflect on your progress and look to make new goals. Session reviews include a partial reassessment in order to see where you are at, how you are feeling about the counselling and therapeutic process, and if you feel you want/need to continue.

Endings can be very difficult for some people. Endings are guided by you, at your pace and when you are ready. You may chose a phased ending or you may wish to end once your feel you have gotten what you wanted/ needed from the process. Either way, you have full control over when and how we end our time together. All I ask for as we end our work together is some feedback on how the process was for you.
