Counselling Can Help |

Counselling and Psychotherapy in Sheffield: One of Sheffields’ most experienced Counsellors practices in Sheffield S10

If you are wondering if counselling or psychotherapy can help you, please give me a call.  I will be happy to talk it through.

People are often agreeably surprised at how helpful it can be to speak to a supportive outsider who is not involved with their life. You might like to think about coming along for an introductory session. This can be a good way to decide for yourself if my approach is likely to be useful.

If you are enquiring for a family-member, colleague, client or friend: please feel free to contact me. I will do my best to help you find something that will help.

As a fully qualified counsellor / psychotherapist I have over 20 years’ full-time practical experience offering confidential counselling and psychotherapy in Sheffield.

My clients can benefit from this broad experience, because I can often get to the heart of the problem without wasting valuable time. Wherever possible I like to start helping clients to turn things around as early as their first session. 

I am qualified to offer one-to-one sessions for individuals and couples-counselling for relationship dificulties.

Everybody has different ways of coping with challenges. At some time all of us experience stress, anger, loss or confusion. Over the years I have been practicing, my clients have taught me a great deal about how to learn from difficult times and how to build a better future.

The counselling sessions I offer are interactive and conversational.

I don’t just sit there listening (though that’s important too, of course.) I also give feedback in response to what people tell me.

Counselling can help people to look into their concerns in depth (rather than hoping they will go away, only to come back again at a later date.) Building a more hopeful future is also important. I encourage clients to learn new skills and develop new attitudes which they can use to look after themselves once their counselling sessions have come to an end. I can also offer ‘check-in’ sessions to previous clients who want to maintain their progress.

If you would like to see a list of some of the issues I have worked with, please click on problems which counselling can help. If you don’t find your particular concerns mentioned there, don’t be put off; I aim to ‘tune in’ to each person (or each couple) who comes along. Respecting each individual, and developing their unique ability to help themselves is central to how I work.

My counselling services are reasonably-priced and I aim to provide good value for money.

Please click on  Fees for details of my ‘Sliding-Scale’ of charges (for example, weekday daytime appointments are cheaper than weekday evenings and Saturday daytimes) and to find out if you are eligible for concessionary rates.

I try to arrange appointment-times around your schedule.

Studies have shown that people are more likely to make progress with counselling if session-times are convenient for them. Life can be challenging enough without struggling to keep awkward appointments!

I can usually offer:

  • some weekday daytimes
  • some weekday evenings
  • some Saturday daytimes


I practice in comfortable private rooms in a residential part of Crookes S10, not far from the Childrens’ Hospital and the Super-tram.  

This setting is calm and discreet. People coming for sessions do not have to face crowded waiting-rooms or miles of institutional corridors! There is always parking-space available nearby, and I am close to the Super-tram and bus-routes to many parts of Sheffield and the surrounding area. For more information please click on my location

For people who are unable to come for regular counselling sessions I offer telephone and Internet counselling.

This can be useful for people who have limited mobility, or who work anti-social hours. Some people use this service instead of face-to-face sessions, others combine both types of session. Please click on telephone and Internet support for more information.

Do not hesitate to contact me if you want to know anything at all about my counselling and psychotherapy services for individuals and couples in Sheffield.

I look forward to hearing from you.


 Kind Regards from Mary Gardner.
