I believe that every situation, every experience – no matter how difficult, painful, or “stuck” it might be – holds within it the opportunity for healthy healing & growth. Do you find yourself caught in a pattern repeating the same cycles? Is symptom management only getting you so far? Does talk-therapy help, but feels like it's missing something? To break a cycle, we can't just work from a surface level, we need to tap into the deeper parts of ourselves. We can't change what we're not aware of, which is why I can help you build the knowledge, self-awareness & skills needed in order to heal & reprogram your subconscious patterns.
Once you know exactly ‘what’ to do you will quickly regain control, find your feet, and move forward. I have over 30 years experience helping people and have been a consultant in charge of a major hospital Psychology Clinic. I have also worked in an Anxiety Disorder Clinic, and Family Therapy Clinic. This level of expertise allows for accurate diagnosis and personalised treatment. I employ practical, tested methods. When you are under stress it is easy to fall into the trap of thinking that you are powerless, and that this is just the way things are. You will start to believe, “I’m not as capable as I once was"

Are you struggling with repeating negative cycles and patterns in your relationship? Perhaps you have just been through a relationship breakup and you are struggling to understand what went wrong and how to move forward? Individual Relationship Counselling can help you to understand how you and your partner have contributed to the patterns in your relationship so you can move forward to a happier healthier future. Couples counselling can help you understand your softer feelings underneath the fighting, and help you express them in a healthy way so that you can both be heard and feel connected, loved and supported.
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.
