Jay McCarthy Counselling

Counsellor & Psychotherapist in Coventry

  • Specialist in: Trauma, Abuse, Anxiety, Depression, GSRD, Sexual abuse
Online Offered
  • Person-Centred counsellor/therapist

Do you feel like you’ve been living life in hard mode for too long? I am here to support you in finding your way from struggling to thriving. I am an experienced counsellor specialising in supporting neurodivergent (inc. autism, ADHD, Down Syndrome and BPD) and LGBTQ+ clients. I am kink-affirming and sex worker allied. I take a person-centred approach, not seeing you as broken or in need of fixing, but rather offering you a space and relationship that supports you to grow in the directions you choose.

I offer 50-minute counselling sessions both online and in-person. You can choose between live chat, voice or video call for online sessions, or I can welcome you to my central Coventry counselling space. Sessions can be weekly or fortnightly and we don’t have to meet on the same day or time every week - I will do my best to fit in with your schedule.
I am passionate about providing inclusive and accessible counselling. Many people find themselves let down by mental health services and not knowing where to turn. I will offer you a space to be yourself, just as you are, without judgment. A chance to be heard, believed and valued. Want to know more? You can book in for a free 15-minute intro session.
