About me

My speciality as an accredited counsellor in the UK, is using CBT to work with and support young people, families, and couples. I help them to understand their trigger points, and find healthier ways to manage their emotional difficulties and trauma.
I have used my work to support people with a variety of mental health challenges, including anxiety, depression, low-mood, OCD, PTSD, work difficulties, relationship problems, bereavement, self-harm, suicidal thoughts and much more. I have also, spent a lot of time supporting people who have experienced emotional and physical abuse. My model is professional, holistic, empathic and non-judgemental with a focus on CBT, Person-centered, Humanistic, Integrative and psychodynamic. I listen to clients and treat them with respect. Working with the clients, I devise a strategy that meets their individual needs.
It is my ethos to encourage clients to be happy to focus on their own strengths and start to feel empowered.
I look forward to working with you, and giving you the tools to be in control of your emotions and changing your story.

I was new to therapy and didn’t know what to expect. Working Shally has helped me identify blockages I was not aware very early in our sessions and I wished I had done this a long time ago. Shally helps me find strategies to improve my relationship with others in any setting but still staying true to myself.

Adeshalewa is really helpful and really listens to me. She helps me look at issues through a different lens.

I was so hesitant to engage in therapy, I thought about it for a long time before I took the first step. My first session was extremely emotional, however it was the most worth while thing I’ve done in a long time. Shally (Adeshalewa) has helped me in so many ways. She is kind, caring and understanding- with her support we been unpicking past experiences, trauma and learned behaviours- things I never would have been able to do on my own.

I’ve only had two sessions so far with Adeshalewa (Shally), but they have been some of the most powerful therapy sessions I have ever experienced. I’ve learned so much from her, and I’m incredibly grateful for her help and wisdom. I don’t think I quite understood exactly how powerful therapy could be until I had a session with her. I’m still processing everything from our sessions so it’s difficult to put it all into words at this point, but I feel like something was opened up inside me and allowed to begin healing for the first time, and I’m filled with an overwhelming sense of gratitude.

She was very attentive and supportive. She also gave clear perspectives
