My name is Stephen Briggs. I am a counsellor/psychotherapist and I have created this website to hopefully reach and inform younger people about the importance of understanding and maintaining good mental health, and to provide information and resources.

If you wish to know more about me you can visit my website

These are some experiences that some of my current younger clients have given me to share (with their permission)


I am a 23 year-old female and I first saw Steve when I was 21. I’d been struggling with anxious thoughts and feeling really lonely in my sadness.

I had my first session with Steve when I was 21. Up until this age, I had suffered with anxiety but found myself struggling to come to terms with the acceptance of it.

My first sessions with Steve was at the age of 14. After struggling to find a counsellor I could connect with at that early age, Steve's approach provided a breath of fresh air.

I am a twenty four year old guy who has been going to therapy on and off for the past two years. I initially was hesitant to reach out for help - I thought both that I could handle things on my own and that I hadn’t been through enough of a difficult time to require therapy.

I am a 15 year-old girl and started seeing Steve just before lockdown. I was struggling with issues regarding anxiety and depression but Steve helped me to get over these fears and open myself back up to my friends and family.

I came to Steve for counselling following recommendation from a friend when I was 22. My Dad died when I was a teen, and this cast a shadow over my life. For many years, I put on a brave face, achieved academically, and had a good social life; however, I also felt depressed, lonely, and filled with anger and regret.

Often, we only see or accept a part of who we really are. Therapy can help explore and discover the whole, real and amazing you.
