Relationship troubles? Wondering if anything or anyone could help? You may be feeling alone, and doubtful - full of worry, guilt or shame at being here. But hearing more anger or blame as you withdraw emotionally only prolongs the problem & often makes things worse. It's lonely being in a relationship where the other person no longer feels 'present'. Ignoring the problems doesn't work, rather it pushes them underground where they fester. At this point you may be feeling raw, stressed, isolated, fearful or disillusioned. Tears & frustration one minute, anger the next. If rekindling love and connection is important to you, let's talk.
I work with women who are experiencing feelings of anxiety, loss or who are finding their new reality challenging. I work with women who have a voice inside their head that critcises and judges them. I work with women who are trying to conceive, are pregnant or who are already parents. I am experienced working with women and couples who are committed to pursuing their dream of having a family via IVF. I am passionate about helping parents manage the trials of parenting and create secure attachments to their young children.
Do you feel overwhelmed, anxious, like you are no longer yourself? Life's challenges often feel like a lot to deal with, leaving you exhausted, burnt out and low in self esteem. Imagine if there was a way through these challenges, a way to manage your anxiety, deal with overwhelm and work towards your ideal way of feeling. I love helping women find their feet again, feel better within themselves and improve their mental health and well being.
Anxiety, stress, persistent negative thoughts and feelings of not being enough, depression, wanting to enter into a relationship, wanting to change direction in your career, can all be areas we work through together.

I love working with people who are ready to dive deep. I find the best work happens when people are ready to reflect and take some risks, opening themselves to new experiences and possibilities. People are ready to try new approaches to old problems in a non clinical environment. They want to feel freer to be themselves, gain clarity and have closer more satisfying relationships with loved ones. Often I work with students of psychology/counselling/play therapy/art therapy who are interested in doing their own wok before becoming therapists. I also work a lot with couples and individuals in life transitions, especially parenthood.
Grief is such a unique experience, you may have lost your wife, husband, child, or your fur baby. You might have lost that relationship you thought was going strong, lost a job you loved. Your feeling overwhelmed with many thoughts and feelings such as crying, feeling sick, even anger. Are you needing help to navigate and understand your grief and just have someone truly listen and not try to fix your grief. You might be feeling like friends and family just don't understand and expect you to just move on. You want to remember your loved one in a healthy way and try to navigate your grief with helpful coping strategies.
I believe that unconscious thoughts or beliefs can influence us to have a complicated and conflicted existence with self and other. With recognising these unconscious thoughts and beliefs we can make decisions, think and behave in ways that create certainty, joy and positive self-worth. By accepting self and other, seeking balance in all aspects of life and recognising you have a choice, you can better manage situations and issues.
I am an integrative therapist who loves working with people who are willing to be curious about themselves and others. I specialise in a process of somatic integration called Focusing, in which attention is placed not only on thoughts, emotions, and behaviours, but also on the body’s immediate, moment-to-moment reactions and processing. This allows clients to be warmly and safely ‘in company’ with themselves, especially those parts that are difficult to access or listen to. By acknowledging, allowing, listening, and responding to oneself from a place of genuine interest, the opportunities for expansion, ease, and joy are endless.

Hi, my names Andy and I run Bloke2Bloke Counselling. My aim is to provide a space for you to work through any problems that are stopping you from living the life you want to lead. I like to take a laid-back approach to counselling to avoid the process feeling overly clinical. Some of the areas I specialize in are Anxiety and Depression Counselling, Workplace issues, Porn and Gambling Addictions and helping younger blokes with the transition period into adulthood. I apply the use of Cognitive behavioural therapy, ACT therapy and Solution focused therapy however, for some, just lending a judgment free ear whilst you offload is enough.
Clients often want to change their behaviour and improve their lives as well as their relationships. However, fear, trauma and past hurt can cause ambivalence. Counselling can help clients work through the why, how and what of making this change. By using a number of modalities such as Motivational Interviewing, CBT, Person Centred, Strengths Based and Gestalt therapies, clients can find their way out of the dark. 'Beyond silence, there is always Hope'.
