Are uncomfortable feelings, anxiety, depression or low self esteem preventing you from moving forward in your life, work or relationships? Living with difficult feelings can be overwhelming. Do you find it hard to put your needs first? Maybe feelings of guilt or resentment get in the way of you being able to say no to other people? I wonder if you sometimes feel it's easier to avoid other people altogether? I imagine you want to feel like you belong and you matter - put yourself first for once. Maybe you want to put healthy boundaries in place? You probably just want to feel better and enjoy life - I'd like to help.

You may have depression or anxiety and feel it is time to consider where these problems are rooted. Maybe the loss of a loved one, divorce, redundancy has changed the world that you once had. Maybe there is ongoing family or work problems that are leaving you confused or angry. You may struggle with intimate relationships and unhelpful patterns are repeating in your life. Maybe you are having problems with self-harm or a pattern of disordered eating.

Coming to counselling is an important decision and often the first brave step towards getting help and making changes for the better. I myself have been in counselling as part of my professional and personal development and I am therefore familiar with the experience of being a client. In my experience, the most important thing to consider and understand when choosing the right person to work with as your counsellor, is the quality of the therapeutic relationship, and feeling both safe to talk about anything that is on your mind, and really heard and understood.

Therapy is about creating the right space, atmosphere and relationship so that the reflecting, processing and healing of your difficulties and can finally take place. It takes a highly experienced clinician to facilitate this delicate process. Qualified to Master's level, I am an experienced adult and individual’s psychotherapist practicing an integrative style that draws on the four main theoretical approaches to therapy; psychodynamic (early-life relationships), humanistic (relationship with self), existential (perspectives on life), as well as transpersonal – involving somatic, mindful and creative ways of working.

Some of the reasons people come to see me is to get help with: stress and anxiety, depression and emotional difficulties brought on by relationship problems, work stress, bereavement, abuse or trauma. Sometimes big life changes such as parenthood, separation, divorce and career changes can catch us unawares and be more difficult to navigate than you might expect. I am committed to making a difference in the lives of the people I work with when facing the challenges life throws at us.

Do you get upset or triggered by relationships, work situations, family issues? That sense of panic and overwhelm where your body feels stressed & the anxiety rockets? Did something happen that you have not shared with anyone, or feel nobody ‘gets it’? Has it felt too big & yet needs sorting and resolving? It’s understandable to feel frustrated, anxious, angry or overwhelmed. Dealing with those feelings while maintaining a family, job & ‘a busy life’ can feel like hard work. “There needs to be more to life” & “It needs to be better than this “ are often said. To feel free from the past, to build a confidence in yourself.

Taking the step to ask for help is often the hardest thing we do. I think as adults we feel as if we "should be able to cope" or "others have it harder" and that in some way needing help or someone to talk to in difficult times is showing a weakness. We invest time and money in keeping our bodies in shape and while that is the vehicle that gets us through our life we need to care for our other parts too. Our emotions and our relationships constantly need recognition and yet we only seek help when we reach a crisis point. So whether you are at a crisis point or struggling with anxiety, depression or a bereavement I am here to help.
