Zoe Goodacre

NCS (Accred) Counsellor, Hypnotherapist and Coach

Zoe is a pluralistic integrative therapist. The pluralistic approach to therapy recognises that every person needs different things from therapy at different times and there is no one ‘right’ way to work on the client’s goals. As an integrative therapist, they integrate techniques from a range of different types of therapy into their work. In addition to training as a counsellor, Zoe trained as a coach and hypnotherapist, meaning that they can bring together a range of different ways of working tailored to your own preferences and needs, and to adapt those approaches as you grow and change. 
“In addition to being adaptable to your unique needs, Zoe is warm, non-judgemental, and focused on building a strong relationship with clients as the basis of therapy. They work with clients from all backgrounds, and especially welcome members of gender, sexuality and relationship diversity groups and people with known or suspected neurodiversity. Working in a trauma-informed way, Zoe can help you understand how your past impacts on your present, including family issues and past relationships, sexual abuse and assault, domestic abuse and substance misuse. When life events such as job loss, divorce, bereavement, and other major life changes happen, Zoe can support you through processing the feelings that naturally arise as you go through these changes. They have worked with people who have experienced depression, anxiety, self-harm and suicidal thoughts as well as supporting people to improve self-esteem, confidence and sense of self-worth. 
Zoe is registered with the National Counselling Society and National Hypnotherapy Society.

Hilary Davies

I am a music therapist registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC), and I
specialise in working with neurodivergent clients. Music therapy is an interactive
psychological therapy which uses creative methods such as playing music or singing,
listening to and discussing music, and song-writing, to address a range of therapeutic goals
(such as working to reduce anxiety or depression, exploring difficult emotions and issues
around self-identity, accessing and processing memories, developing self-confidence and
increasing your general sense of wellbeing). Music therapy sessions often also involve
talking as part of the therapeutic process, but you do not have to speak if you do not want
to: I have worked with many non-verbal people. Music is a universal language, which can
offer a way to communicate beyond words: this can be useful if you find particular
experiences, feelings and thoughts difficult to put into words, or if talking is difficult for you
in general.
You do not need to have any musical experience to have music therapy, and I offer a warm,
nurturing and relaxed approach, with a deep acceptance of diversity and difference, and a
co-creative and adaptable therapeutic method. I offer a free 20-minute Zoom consultation
session if you would like to meet me and ask any questions you might have about music
therapy. I am based in Gwynedd, North Wales and am also available for online music
therapy sessions.
After performing and teaching music for nearly twenty years, I chose to retrain as a music
therapist, achieving a Masters degree in Music Therapy (with distinction) from the Guildhall
School of Music and Drama in 2019. I practice music therapy with a Neurodiversity-
affirmative and person-centred approach, supported by my extensive knowledge of music,
my training in psychodynamic therapy, and my deep commitment to sharing the
transformative power of music with others.
