25 years of counselling experience really does make a difference. Having worked with thousands of clients I can recognise what’s happening for you faster. Reach out if you need support getting symptoms of anxiety & depression under control, tackling childhood trauma, trauma from intimate partner abuse, sexual assault or workplace bullying. I use both cognitive behavioural & sensorimotor art therapies (Guided Drawing & Clay field therapy) to rapidly improve your situation. Fundamental to my work is helping you to be more certain in yourself, better connected to yourself and others and confident in your decision making.

We often reach a point in life where it’s important to move on from the old and embrace the new. This may feel challenging and overwhelming in the short term, but it can also be an incredibly fulfilling and enriching experience in the long term. As a counsellor, my priority is to create a safe and therapeutic space where you can be heard without judgement and met with respect and empathy. To me, understanding trauma and resilience is highly important: what trauma means and how it can affect us is an important step to self-discovery. And what makes up your resilience? Learning again, but this time with more meaning and motivation.

A relationship that thrives and gives you fulfilment will bring the kind of lasting happiness that enables you and your partner to grow and create deeper bonds. When an important relationship becomes strained or distressed, the pain you feel can challenge you to the core. I work with you in order to reveal the dynamics of your relationship - the patterns that you have built to protect the wounds that you have suffered. Together we will explore and uncover the hidden beliefs and unconscious drivers that are the triggers of your difficulties in relating to yourself or partner. We long to become present to ourselves, and connected.
