You might seek help for a variety of reasons, such as anxiety, low mood, bereavement, eating and body weight problems, relational issues, feeling stuck or overwhelmed by life change situations (the list is not exhaustive). Sometimes it could be difficult to identify a specific reason for seeking support. It might be a struggle to find a sense of meaning or a way through emotional pain. Whatever the reason you are looking for emotional support, I can offer my skills and experience in a safe a confidential non-judgemental space where you can feel free to express your thoughts, and feelings.

At some point in life we all need some extra support. A caring and non-judgemental space to feel seen and heard in our experience. Someone to walk alongside us on our journey who is separate from our everyday lives, offering professional guidance & reflection. As a therapist, I aim to offer this in a way that feels congruent and helpful for you. I offer a space for you to process and understand your experience safely. When the world around us can often feel confusing and turbulent, the combination of Psychotherapy and creativity can offer containment, insight and the potential for positive change.

Counselling is a place to explore our thoughts, feelings and emotions. A chance to explore our life direction. An opportunity to pause and understand where we are and what is happening in our lives right now. It is a place to explore past and present events or traumas and a space to speak out loud thoughts that had previously been unspeakable.

I am an integrative therapist specialising in using eye-movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) therapy to treat a wide range of psychological issues. I am highly trained in psychotherapy, neuroscience and trauma and believe that our current issues can often be traced back to early adverse experiences in childhood. Compared to standard talking therapy EMDR generally takes a shorter amount of time to get to the root cause of the issue. Rather than just dealing with symptom management (like CBT), EMDR therapy works directly with the cause of your distress.

Welcome to my therapy practice. I like to think of my way of working with individuals or couples as creating a unique space that is facilitating for recovery or growth. I draw on a wide range of techniques and approaches to fulfil this way of working (including the use of CBT tools). Psychotherapy and counselling with me is a confidential and non-judgemental process. I won’t tell you what to do but we will talk about whatever you need to talk about and we will work on ways of developing a useful route through your issues, however difficult. (My practice is neurodiverse informed and kink friendly).

Psychotherapy can help you with such difficulties as: relationship problems, life transitions, depression, anxiety, identity confusion, and anger. People who engage in individual therapy often speak of improvements in the quality of their relationships, increased confidence and a growing ability to take risks and make changes in their lives. Problems in partner relationships can be complex and sometimes destructive and limiting, with roots in childhood difficulties. Couples therapy seeks to understand the underlying issues and conflicts, resolve difficulties and find an agreed way forward.

I am particularly interested in the mind-body connection and its role in healing unresolved distress. Our bodies recall our emotional pain with more clarity than our brains can remember. In therapy, the safe and confidential relationship we develop will allow you to explore your present-moment experiences. Working collaboratively and creatively, at a pace that feels right for you, we will pay holistic attention to your feelings, thoughts and physical sensations. As your awareness, understanding and compassion grows, this greater clarity can empower you to move towards connection, wholeness and wellbeing.

Whether you have recently experienced a crisis in life, or have a more enduring sense of something feeling wrong, I offer a compassionate space for you to explore whatever issue brings you to therapy. Beginning to talk about yourself and what you are dealing with may feel new or even unnerving, so I am always mindful to work with you at your own pace. In the process of therapy many different issues may come up for you, and the space provided by therapy allows us to work through these issues together. (NB: From Spring 2023 I will be offering a limited number of sessions outdoors, please let me know if this may be interest to you.)

My aim is to help you explore any issues that interfere with your mental and emotional wellbeing, and to help you find your own resources to live better. I have always been very interested in understanding what makes people cope, heal and thrive. I know an essential part of the answer comes down to having an environment that supports self-reflection, self-regard and growth. I believe counselling can be that time and space we need to make sense of our experiences, to express ourselves, to explore what configures our identity, to clarify stressors and to update coping strategies.

Clients of all ages come to me with a range of issues and experiences – family difficulties, loss, anxiety, low mood, trauma … and just as often with more general feelings of unease and isolation that can be hard to pin down with words. Clients often appreciate space to reflect on their identity and their place in the world. One of the greatest privileges in my work is to support families working through past and present hurts to heal relationships, through empathy and authentic communication. I am experienced in working with foster carers and children in care, using an approach informed by Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy (DDP).

Counselling can help us get through tremendously difficult times in our lives but also create longer term change by deepening our self - awareness, bring insight into certain behaviours and building our resilience. I will listen closely to your story without judgment and we will decide together if/how we might work together. I am an Integrative Counsellor so make use of a range of models and theories. I use some CBT tools, Transactional Analysis and I find thinking about our systems and the people/ society around us to be very useful. Depending on you I may suggest some creative tools,

Yes. Most counsellors offer reasonable rates or will work on a sliding scale basis. Many accept health insurance. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the counsellor.
