Who we help

Therapy & Counselling in Northampton

We help all kinds of people with all kinds of issues. Don’t ever think that what you’re feeling is somehow unworthy of therapy – that you’re being a fraud. If you feel you have a problem, then you have a problem … and it’s our job, our mission,  to help you to resolve it. Here are just some of the areas where we can help you – 

  • Anxiety

  • Depression

  • Confidence and Self-esteem

  • Relationships

  • Family problems

  • Work and school issues

  • Bereavement

  • Change and goals

  • Trauma 

If your main reason for therapy isn’t on this list, don’t be put off. Call us. There’s every chance we can help.


Please note - We don’t deal with sexual matters or eating disorders. These are areas which demand specialist help.

Trust and empathy

Trust and empathy

It isn’t easy deciding to seek out therapy or counselling. It’s natural to feel daunted. Neither is it easy to choose the therapist who’s best for you. You need someone who, from the first meeting, you feel:

• you can trust

• shares empathy with what you’re going through

• feels like a good fit


In short, you need a counsellor with whom you feel you can connect and develop a strong therapeutic relationship. At Ponzo Counselling, we’re highly qualified counsellors with a broad range of experience at helping to resolve life’s numerous challenges.

How we work – asking, listening, resolving

Our initial role is a listening one. By asking sensitively formulated questions, we encourage you to talk about what you’re going through as openly as possible.


We call our approach ‘integrative therapy’. We tailor our therapy to you, to your issues and to your goals. We start from the position that everyone is unique - the same issues affect different people in different ways. They demand different solutions. We get to know you as fully as possible - to learn about your life both present and past, as well as your dreams for the future.
