Your unique story, your life's journey with all its trials and joys, is an intensely personal space that deserves respect and validation. And while you have, for the most part, done well in navigating challenges, sometimes you get lost in the mess. It's when this happens, another person can help you see a different viewpoint or another strength you didn't even know you had. My aim in counselling, is to be that other person, who can walk with you, providing a listening ear and a supportive voice, shedding light on your path forward.
As a counsellor and Poly Vagal informed therapist, I am passionate about the importance of safety within yourself and within your world. My aim is to help you understand why your nervous system responds the way it does and what it is trying to express. I have a special interest in anxiety & panic attacks, life transitions, loss and self esteem issues.
When life circumstances become overwhelming, your nervous system responds by encouraging you to withdraw and hide in protection. This is normal. However it can cause you to remain isolated and lost. Can I encourage you to reach out and call me, and together we can find a way back.

Seeing anxiety & panic attacks through the lens of Poly Vagal Theory, gives clients a language to what is happening within their body & reassurance they're not going crazy. Initial sessions involve understanding how life events shape our nervous systems. We then work together on various exercises that increase awareness of autonomic states, improve self regulation and enhance wellbeing.

I base my sessions on the principles of Poly Vagal Theory - the 'science of safety'. However within this framework I utilise a number of modalities such as Positive Psychology, CBT and Solution Focussed Therapy. Once a client understands their nervous system and is able to read and map it, other therapies make more sense and the client is better equipped in managing their issues.
