Clients Feedback

“Each session has provided positive feelings and helped me change my inner thoughts and self belief. I am so glad I attended here for this therapy. Thank you so much.”

“The process of counselling has without a doubt been the best thing I have ever chosen to do. It helped me rationalise my thoughts to get my feelings under control and not spiral. If you put the work in counselling is 100% worth it! Valerie made everything manageable and feel safe. Thank you”

25 year old client

“It has been fantastic. When I started I felt so low and down. The strategies have helped me think more positively which I didn’t feel would happen again. The guidance has been positive but challenging to make me really think about everything instead of making excuses to stop myself moving forward. Thank you so so much”

Valerie Barr - Integrative Cognitive Behavioural Therapist

I am an integrative Cognitive Behavioural Therapist, my interest in becoming a therapist developed within my work in Social Care and Trauma Informed Services. Throughout my career I have been privileged to work with a diverse range of individuals. I have provided emotional and practical support within many communities to individuals who have been the most inspiring and resilient individuals that I have been fortunate enough to meet.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

Personal therapy can be the greatest gift we give to ourselves for ourselves. The therapy I provide is individual for you and your experience and will be in collaboration with you. By this I mean we will work together to build a trusting relationship, which will allow you to explore the issues you wish to discuss in a confidential, safe and nurturing environment.

Retrain Your Brain

Our Retrain your Brain Mood Food workshop has evolved through a sheer labour of love from our passion around learning about our emotions, well-being and our love of all thing’s food!

FOOD plays such an integral part in all our life’s not only to sustain our very being but to nourish our SOUL and in many instances to soothe our human experiences. Over the years we have been fortunate to work within many communities.

Therapeutic Workshops

We provide specialised workshops which incorporate Integrative Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Nutrition, Well-being and most importantly good old-fashioned fun which is threaded throughout our sessions. Our workshops are experiential and are tailored to incorporate each individual learning style and are delivered at a level and pace suitable to each participant.
