In order to minimise the spread of coronavirus I am taking on clients for online video therapy only at present, in accordance with advice from the professional bodies (UKCP, BACP). When the situation allows, I will move clients from online to in-person appointments. Please contact me for details.

Welcome! My name is Stacey, I'm a chartered psychologist and psychotherapist in the Belfast area. I'm here to help.

You may feel stuck with a difficulty that’s impacting your emotional wellbeing, or perhaps a general sense of dissatisfaction and wanting more from life. Perhaps you are unsure of what it is that’s troubling you. I can offer you the opportunity to work through this to create lasting and transformative change in your life.

About Me

Dr Stacey Baraniuk, CPsychol, DCPsych, BSc

I have extensive experience of working one-to-one with adults and young people in a variety of NHS and private settings. Within these settings I have helped clients with a range of difficulties including anxiety, depression, trauma, relationship issues and loss.

Having completed my doctorate in Counselling Psychology and Psychotherapy, I am currently registered as a chartered psychologist with the British Psychological Society (BPS) and as a counselling psychologist with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). I am also registered as a psychotherapist with the UK Council of Psychotherapy (UKCP) and the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

What to expect in the first session

Seeing a therapist for the first time can sometimes feel a little overwhelming. I hope that in our introductory session together you will feel welcome and relaxed as we discuss what your expectations are of the therapy and what I can offer. I can explain more about how counselling works and answer any questions you have.

The first session is an opportunity to see if you feel comfortable working with me. It is also a chance for us to discuss the terms of the therapy including the times you are able to attend.

I provide a safe, non-judgemental and confidential environment in which you can discuss your concerns and worries freely. I’m aware that it can sometimes feel very difficult to talk to those closest to you about your innermost thoughts and feelings. Speaking to a professional can relieve the isolation and misunderstanding that this can create.

Working together

I am able to offer short- and long-term face-to-face therapy, as well as therapy via online video link. The sessions take place once a week and last 50 minutes.

We will work collaboratively throughout the process. Whether we work together for a short time or over a longer period, there will be regular points at which we review the therapy. This is important to make sure that you are getting the help and support that you need.

Things I can help with:

Post-traumatic stress (PTSD)
Relationship problems
Bullying and emotional abuse
Suicidal feelings/thoughts
Anger management
Counselling regarding abortion and fertility issues

I charge £60 per session.

Concessions are available for students and individuals on a low income.
