Professional therapy for personal healing.
"We think we listen, but very rarely do we listen with real understanding, true empathy. Yet listening, of this very special kind, is one of the most potent forces for change that I know"
Carl R Rogers
My name is Ashleigh Duncan and I am a fully qualified professional Counsellor, Psychotherapist and Holistic Practitioner with a busy private practice based in Newtownabbey. With 7 years of Counselling experience, I have a proven track record in helping clients successfully work through a range of difficult personal issues and situations, by offering a bespoke programme of counselling and personal healing, tailored to meet the personal needs of each individual client.
Together with Counselling and Psychotherapy, I am also qualified in a number of holistic and psychological therapies including well-being coaching, mindfulness, meditation and reiki https://www.adcounsellingnewtownabbey.co.uk/alternative-therapies each of which I can incorporate into personal counselling sessions, depending on client need.
My priority is always to ensure clients receive the best possible care and support, meeting each client in their needs. I implore a unique humanist approach that integrates one to one counselling with holistic therapies for a life changing journey of personal healing.

Professional Therapy for Personal Healing
How am I different?
I am an integrated counsellor incorporating all of the main counselling approaches to my therapy, such as;
Person Centred Counselling, Solution Focused Therapy, CBT, 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 behaviour, cognitive, and psychological system.
I implore to suit each clients personality - tailoring the therapy to each client, rather than the client to the therapy, I implore to work in a way which compliments the person as they are, facilitate self acceptance, healing, promoting a stronger sense of self whilst working through any issues presented.
Furthermore, I hold qualifications in various holistic and psychological 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).
Covid - 19 Temporary adjustment to services
During this time we all need to make our health and well-being a priority, it is important we follow government guidelines, taking all measures where possible to ensure the health & safety of ourselves and others.
Face to face sessions are now available with social distancing and safety measures in place, however remote therapy will continue to be offered should you prefer.
With enough common sense, consideration, care and compassion for ourselves and each other, we will get through these times.
I have included some tips and advice within the blog section and videos on my Facebook page to help manage mental throughout this time.
