About me and my therapy practice

Hello and welcome, I'm Roisin. I work face to face in rooms close to Sheffield city centre.

Coming to counselling takes courage. Sometimes we don't know why we are feeling low in self-esteem, triggered, or why life may lack meaning. 

The process of coming to counselling can help you find hidden parts of yourself, and help you to integrate these so that you feel more whole. 

Therapy is a place for you to explore some of the things you’re finding hard to deal with. It’s a place for you to cry, to feel frustrated, sad or angry, and to inhabit those emotions that you may keep closed off or hidden away. It’s a place where we’ll work together to think about how you’ve found yourself in this situation, how you’re feeling now, and what direction you’ll take going forwards. 

I know from personal experience both as a client and as a therapist that talking therapy helps many of us feel more connected, more alive, and more able to feel like we can make decisions to steer our lives the way we want it to go.  

Get in touch: I offer a half-price initial session, which is an opportunity for me to find out more about you, and for you to find out more about whether you’d like to work with me.

Level 7 Postgraduate Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy

MSc in Social Work

15 years of working in social care throughout the UK with struggling families, older adults in hospital, and supporting people living on the edges of society.

I have worked as a counsellor in the NHS, working with people who have chronic pain conditions, as well as loss and bereavement, identity and self-worth, and living with trauma. 

Practice description

I am a qualified Integrative Counsellor and Psychotherapist. This means I am trained to work in a way which takes on board different approaches in order to tailor my practice for your needs. The way I work focuses on the here and now, what you are feeling in the present, and I’ll invite you to explore this in different ways, such as using objects, movement  or drawing.

I am interested in your past, how you grew up, what your family situation was, and how this may have impacted on you. My counselling approach incorporates psychodynamic perspectives as well as more Humanistic such as Person-Centred Therapy, Transactional Analysis, Gestalt, as well as CBT. I also work relationally, with what may arise between us.

My practice is best described by client testimonials. Permission to share their words has been given.

“Therapy with Roisin changed my life. When we first started working together, I felt heavy, stuck and that life had become joyless.  Roisin helped me to sit with feelings that panicked me. I learnt to accept and be kinder to myself, and built up the courage to voice darker emotions, instead of pushing them away.

Roisin was a brilliant guide throughout the process. She is a patient listener and radiates kindness. She brings a creativity and flexibility to sessions which I really chimed with. She helped me to understand and stomach pain - coming at it through talking, drawing, noticing physical sensations – and was always responsive to what seemed to be working best.

As sessions come to an end, I feel a sense of acceptance and stable, sustainable happiness. Life feels creative and energetic, I actually like myself and I don’t fear my emotions or the future. This is thanks to Roisin, and I would recommend her to anyone considering therapy.”

My first session

I offer a free 25mins phone call, which is an opportunity for you to briefly tell me what you’d like to focus on in your counselling sessions, and for me to consider whether I have the skills to support you. 

Your first face to face session is half price at £25, and this is more of an information gathering session, where we can talk about the contract of work we may do together, and what you will need to consider before moving forwards. 

It's also an opportunity for you to find out whether you’d like to work with me and whether you feel we are a 'good fit'. 

Initially, after you contact me via email, I will send you a follow up email before we decide on a mutually beneficial time and date to talk on the phone.
