The climate and ecological crisis can cause a range of mental health issues including, grief, anxiety, trauma, and feelings of anger and despair. However, it can also prompt people to re-evaluate their lives, vision meaningful change, and turn sadness into positive life-affirming action. I acknowledge the legitimacy and complicated nature of the human response to the climate crisis; I don't presume the presence or absence of climate-related distress in my client but understand how relationships to nature, living systems, scientific evidence, and media coverage of climate change can help integrate and resolve psychological stressors.
I'm clinical psychologist with over 10 years experience both in private practice and the public sector working with individuals aged 21-65. I believe in using therapy frameworks that are evidence based and individualized treatment plans rather than a 'one size fits all'. I work with people who feel stuck/ stagnant in life repeating the same cycles leaving them dissatisfied. My goal is to help create insight into unhelpful patterns of thinking & behaviors AND give you necessary tools to find strategies to better cope with the challenges of everyday life.
I believe we are all doing the best we can with what we've got, but sometimes we don't have the right skills or viewpoint from which to understand and resolve the issues that cause us to suffer. Our old coping strategies fail and we become stressed, depressed, anxious, isolated, angry, fed up, stuck, lost or hopeless. And there's a voice in us that says we've got to figure it out for ourselves, we mustn't burden others or others won't understand us. I'll listen deeply and work beside you to find your own answers, in a confidential, non judgemental, safe space. We all need to be seen and understood and to understand ourselves.
People come to therapy because they want to help to live a better life. They want things to change but are not quite sure how to make these changes. They often express themselves as feeling quite "stuck". I see symptoms such as an addiction, an eating disorder, depression and anxiety as not merely events to be removed by magic words or medication , but as indicators that the way the person is living their life is unsatisfactory to them. They may lack the insight that could help them live a more fulfilling life; to be able to make healthier choices or to simply lead a less chaotic or dramatic life.
Are you feeling overwhelmed? Do you feel frightened and scared without there really being anything that is really threatening you? Do you find yourself asking questions “why, what for and what’s the point?” Does your inner voice keep knocking you? Do you find that you keep repeating the same bad patterns of relationships? Do you, at times, surprise yourself with the intensity of anger and rage? Do you feel that others are constantly criticising you? Sometimes we are our own worst enemy. Negative thoughts and feelings get in our way. Psychotherapy helps us manage, return to and create new paths on the road to wellbeing
I am passionate about supporting people to reclaim their lives and relationships from the effects of problems, such as stress, anxiety, depression, relationship issues. I enjoy meeting with a diversity of people, who each bring their hopes and dreams about what is important in life. Many people want assistance to find their next steps.
Life can throw up sticky moments which can feel experientially ‘heavy’. Where once we seemed to have managed well enough, where now it feels like something else is needed to meet that moment in a more enduring way. I platform a space that is safe, secure and stable that holds our work together in finding a more enduring way forward. “The most difficult thing is the decision to act, the rest is merely tenacity. The fears are paper tigers. You can do anything you decide to do. You can act to change and control your life; and the process is its own reward”. Amelia Earhart
