I offer psychotherapy to individuals seeking to understand their relationship issues, emotional conflicts and psychological difficulties. I provide a safe, non judgemental and supportive space for you to talk freely about whatever may be concerning you. You will have time and space to slow down to think through your thoughts and feel your feelings as I invite and welcome all the parts of you to be seen and heard. Together we can explore and process the impact of past wounds and relationships and as we make sense of what you discover you will strengthen your ability to fiercely be yourself and create the life that you desire.
Have you been finding it difficult to feel like you can be yourself? Do you feel broken, anxious or depressed? Depression and anxiety can affect some or even all aspects of a persons life but most of all it can leave a person feeling defeated and depleted. Depression and anxiety are expert at holding you back and filling you with fear and sadness and although it can feel like it is impossible to escape, the right therapy can set you on the road to recovery. Together we can work on undoing the damage caused by anxiety and depression and build the life that you want.
I am genuinely curious about the hopes, dreams and inner workings of anyone that comes to see me. Together, we can navigate where you want your life to go and any obstacles you wish to overcome: identifying your personal values, desires, yearnings, and any emotional conflicts or confusions - acknowledging patterns in your relationships, behaviour with others, and the influence of social & cultural factors on 'identity' and quality of life. Feeling heard, seen and understood is vitally important.

I'm a friendly, empathetic, and down-to-earth psychologist & couple therapist. I enjoy working with a diverse range of clients with different backgrounds, ages, religious and spiritual beliefs, and sexual orientations. I work with individuals that present with both situational and longstanding emotional, relational, and psychological difficulties.

I am a relationship counselor and sex therapist. Couples do not always realise that sexual issues are often the main problem for their unhappiness. We are all taught reading, writing and math at school but very few people have received proper sex education or relationship advice. Most areas of conflict are lack of romance, companionship and fun. Expectations are often unrealistic and after being together for some time couples may encounter a mismatch in sex drives, one partner wants sex more than the other. This desire discrepancy is not abnormal but this conflict can end up a very negative effect on the relationship.
I aim to help my clients cope with stress, worries, and fears, improve and stabilize mood, improve communication skills, become more assertive, create harmonious relationships, battle self-doubt and feelings of inadequacy, and live more authentic, congruent, and meaningful lives.

People often come to Freedom Clinical Psychology because they are struggling and feel stuck in their lives. They might feel disconnected from others socially, like they are lacking something meaningful in their life, unfulfilled in work or struggling with intimacy in their romantic relationships. Under the surface there are often powerful patterns of how we think, feel and react to situations that were formed when we were children or adolescents and contribute to keeping us stuck now.
Whether you are seeking counselling/therapy for the first time, or you are a veteran on this journey, I welcome you, all of you, with an open mind and open heart. Often making the decision to seek support is a crucial step towards healing and sustainable change.
