Welcome to AD Counselling & Wellness Newtownabbey. 

Within my busy private practice based along Antrim Road, Glengormley I offer bespoke therapy & healing, held in a confidential, non-judgemental, safe environment.   Each session will give you time and space to make sense of your feelings, process your thoughts, facilitating you in overcoming any obstacles your may be facing. 

Professionally registered I adhere to the ethical guidelines laid down by British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP).

Why come to therapy?

Life can at times be challenging, with problems often becoming overwhelming, seeking professional support throughout these difficult times, is the first step in taking control back.


When might you consider coming to counselling? 

Perhaps you are:-

  • Struggling to understand damaging thoughts, patterns or behaviours 
  • Experiencing anxiety, depression or other limiting emotions.
  • Struggling within your personal/professional relationships
  • Coping with trauma or loss
  • It may simply be that you need some time to yourself, to process your thoughts and feelings in order to help you make stronger decisions and gain confidence in respective areas of your life

Whatever your needs may be, together we will work your issues. I work with many presentations and issues, some common examples being; 

Abuse, Addiction, Alcoholism, Anxiety, Anger, Loss and Bereavement, Behavioural Patterns, Compulsive Disorders, Confidence Building, Depression, Domestic Violence, Emotional Distress, Esteem Issues, Family Problems, Food related issues, Job Loss, Life Changes/Adaption, Low Moods, Relationship and Sexual Issues.

Alternatively people seek to come to therapy as a form of self care, a dedicated time and space to explore the aspects of their life. Helping them to manage wellbeing and nurture their mental health.

I understand this may be a difficult time and taking that first step can be daunting therefore I will do my utmost to put your mind at ease.  Offering a free non obligation telephone consultation I am happy to answer any questions you may have.

How am I different? 

 I am an integrated Counsellor incorporating all of the main counselling approaches to my therapy, such as; 

Person Centered Counselling, Brief Solution Focused Therapy, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy

Psychodynamic Approach

In combining these theories along with my own signature framework I aim to help my clients heal on all levels. 

 This framework is designed to connect with each element of each individual person, considering their personality as well as the make up of their behavior, cognitive, and physiological system.  

I implore my approach to suit each clients personality - tailoring the therapy to each client, rather than the client to the therapy.

 My aim is to work in a way which compliments the person as they are, faciliting self acceptance, healing and promoting a stronger sense of self whilst working through their presentation. 

Furthermore I hold qualifications in various holistic therapies, aiming to support my clients through the therapy process to the very best of my ability (with permission or on request I may incorporate alternative therapies within my sessions).
