Nurture your potential

Change is possible

Do you want to feel happier and more confident in yourself?

Therapy is a safe space for you to share what you feel comfortable sharing. It’s a place where you can offload your worries and a place for you to nurture your potential. We will work at your pace and find the right balance so that you can feel stronger and more resilient in your day-to-day life.

Do you want to strengthen your relationships and improve your communication skills?

Tailored to meet your individual needs, my approach to counselling and psychotherapy combines traditional talk therapy and creative therapy. Integrating a visual and action-based approach to therapy can help you become more aware of yourself, the roles you play and your relationships.

Do you want to find your own voice and own your own voice?

Creativity is a universal language for self-expression. When words alone are not enough, I can offer you a creative outlet so that you can freely express your thoughts and feelings. You will be supported to take ownership of your therapeutic process so that you may deepen your understanding about yourself.

Do you want to have a better understanding of who you are and where you want to go?

Whenever we experience a new change or transition in life, it can sometimes leave us feeling overwhelmed, lost or stuck. Wherever you may be in your personal journey, I can support you through your difficulties and challenges, and help you find resolutions that feel right for you.

Do you want to feel empowered by your choices and decisions?

There are many ways to work in therapy and many ways to work with you! I will see you as a whole person and not judge you based on your condition, problem or situation. I will support you to find your own answers, follow your lead in the sessions, and not tell you what to think or what to do.

Do you want to move forward in your life?

My therapeutic approach encourages you to broaden your perspective so that you may see things in a new light. We can look at how your past connects to you in the here and now. Working in this way can help you gain clarity about who you are today and inspire hope in the future.

About Jamie Kelly & YTherapy

Who is Jamie Kelly? I am a Dramatherapist (Arts Psychotherapist), with over 10 years of clinical experience in the field of mental health, addictions and trauma, I have worked in education, healthcare, social care and criminal justice systems.

The Story of YTherapy In 2017, I founded YTherapy so that mental health services could be accessed by more people in the community. I am passionate about recovery and am guided by the belief that we all have within ourselves the ability to change, grow and flourish to our full potential when in a safe, non-judgemental and creative environment. I believe in empowering people to take charge of their mental health and wellbeing before reaching a point of crisis.

What is Dramatherapy?

Dramatherapy is creative and holistic in its approach to trauma recovery. If you have been affected by childhood and relational trauma, this creative and holistic approach to counselling and psychotherapy can help you share your story. Dramatherapy can help you to:

  • become more aware of your thoughts, feelings and actions
  • address the root cause of problems
  • understand your past and the way it connects to your present and future
  • explore your identity, the roles you play and your relationships with others

Like more traditional forms of psychotherapy, talking is a key component in Dramatherapy. It is used alongside action-based methods that bring together the mind and body. Together, we use techniques such as: role play, embodiment, movement, art and story-making. It is about using all communications channels when words alone may not be enough. It is also about empowering you to express your emotions safely in a non-judgemental space.
