The counselling services enable clients to gain insight into their thoughts, feelings and behaviours via approaches which include talking, reflecting, and mindfulness. I build a collaborative working relationship with clients, sensitively tailoring the support to meet specific needs. Creating a ‘therapeutic alliance’ is where clients feel safe and supported to explore difficult situations, and understand emotions, reactions and responses. The therapeutic alliance provides opportunities to talk through, find resolution and work towards making the desired changes to improve wellbeing while facilitating personal growth and development.

People often tell me that the reason why they choose to work with me is because they can see that they can be challenged and guided to be the empowered version of themselves, while at the same time feeling safe in the knowledge they are being cared for and supported by a qualified clinical psychologist. I have been a Clinical Psychologist since 2013 and a leadership and life coach since 2009. I am passionate about working with people who are ready to change their unhelpful stories to more empowering and authentic ones.

Many of us feel anxious about the future and regret aspects of our past. We can also spend a lot of energy trying to control things that are not actually within our control. At the same time we can feel that things that we have no power over states of mind such as panic attacks or phobias. We can feel anxious about feeling anxious! We want to live the best life we can but we're just not sure how to do that. Chronic anxiety, shame and anger are barriers to finding solutions for the best way forward, for being the best versions of ourselves. We want someone to hear our stories and know us for the person we really are.

Few sail through life without encountering obstacles of one sort or another. For the most part we adjust to challenges or emotional upset using our own internal healing systems. Occasionally though, we just can't find a way through the pain and can't understand what went wrong. At these times it is really helpful to talk with someone who is trained to notice the emotions behind your words, and it is by noticing these emotions solutions to your troubles can be found.
