The approach I first trained in and like to use the most is an integrative model called the Relational approach. This approach incorporates both humanistic and psychodynamic elememts which means it retains the warmth of the humanistic models which focus on empathy and building trust, and the Freudian concepts of the unconcious mind and transference. I work best with clients who are willing to explore how they relate to people, by examining what is going on in our relationship during therapy. I really enjoy working with clients who have issues around relationships and attachment, and find this work both interesting and rewarding.

Sometimes you compare yourself with others and feel you are 'less than' them. Perhaps you focus on your appearance too much- try to control your shape, weight, exercise and food in an attempt to feel better. Maybe you believe if you could just reach that 'perfect' weight you'd be happy. Perhaps you develop rules you have to live by and become rigid in your behaviours to control your anxiety. Do you set impossible standards for yourself and often feel disappointed. You may feel stuck in a current set of behaviours and can't seem to break your habits, even though you know what you do isn't helpful for you? Would you like to change?

Do you sometimes feel lost or unsure about what your purpose is? Why you are here? Why life has happened as it did so far? Are you struggling to get through a tough life transition, loss or grief?

Do you find it difficult to trust others or are wondering how to improve your relationships with others? I offer a safe, unbiased space to talk that is removed from your direct family and friends. This freedom to speak openly can be helpful when trying to talk through tricky and uncomfortable feelings.

The counselling process allows you to choose between working short term on a particular issue or over a longer period yielding the opportunity to explore deeper aspects present in your life. We will work collaboratively, understanding what is being brought to the room and making sense of it together in an environment of respect and safety. In our work together you develop a self awareness and a capacity for a fuller sense of you. This will improve your relationship/ connection to self and with significant others. By building care and understanding, perspectives broaden- loosening the bolts on any self limiting beliefs or narratives.

There are times in life when we recognise that we need some support to help us through the darkness. Emotional upsets, challenges in relationships, at work, changes in home life, difficult relationship with food and body image, unexpected and/or expected life events which can cause grief, anxiety and depression - all these things and more can leave us asking ourselves if we are 'good enough'.

Things are not normal just now. We are living through a time of uncertainty and change. Homelife, workalike and our relationships are changing because of the uncertainty caused by the virus and on-going economic turmoil. Most us want certainty and predictability in our lives; we do not like change. When forced to change we feel stress, confusion, frustration, anger and even fear. Counselling is often thought of as a way of resolving mental health problems. It is, but it can also be so much more; counselling can be a like bootcamp for developing mental fitness and to help prevent poor mental health. NOW WORKING SATURDAY MORNINGS

It can feel hard to ask for help. You may feel confused, hopeless and as if no-one can understand what you're going through. You may be unsure whether therapy is right for you but you do know that something needs to change. I offer a warm, pragmatic approach to therapy in the belief that with the right support, we are all capable of making positive changes. I want to explore ways to help you better understand your own experience and to reconnect with what's important - empowering you to move forwards with your precious life. I believe people are remarkable - but sometimes we need a little help in remembering that.

You may be suffering intolerable thoughts and feelings, and just want to stop feeling so awful. Sometimes we feel we have run out of ideas - what to do to help ourselves. Having someone, who is not connected to you gives you the safe space to say all the stuff we cannot say to even our nearest and dearest. That's why counselling can be an answer - a time when we can really explore what is happening and make meaning out of our life.

If it feels like no-one is on your side and no one understands, I truly believe that change is possible. The reason I do this work is that with the right support and input people can change.

For some, finding the root of a lifetime of negative feelings is completely transforming for others a confirmation, but for everyone it brings healing.

If you change nothing, nothing changes but it can be hard to know where to begin. I feel it starts with you being heard and valued. Having your story and your feelings witnessed and validated is extraordinarily powerful and provides the catalyst for change. You will gain a clarity and a sense of perspective as well as an understanding of why you behave in the way you do. Talking to me will feel different from talking to a friend or family member. I will offer you insights and reflections, not opinions or solutions. I am interested in you and your experiences and they matter to me, but as I'm not involved I can remain objective.
