Are you a parent or carer looking for support for the child in your care? Maybe you’ve been surprised by your own strong and complex emotions that seem to have been stirred up by parenting? One of the greatest privileges in my work is to support families working through past and present hurts to nurture understanding and deepen relationships. I work collaboratively with parents and carers to figure out what approach is best suited to your family’s needs right now. I also specialise in Jungian-informed sandplay therapy, which is suitable for individual clients of all ages and backgrounds.

Do you have that feeling that life is becoming too much? Or maybe you feel your mood is low and you dont know why. Do you feel anxious but dont know how to control the symptoms? or maybe you know exactly how you feel and are suffering in silence because you dont know where to turn or who to talk to about it.

People come to counselling for many different reasons. It’s a brave first step to make; to decide that you might need or want help processing your thoughts and feelings with another person. Counselling can often help us to understand ourselves better; reframe the way we experience ourselves and help us to open up to the possibility of change. As a counsellor, my focus is on the relationship that is co-created in a safe, non-judgemental space with clients. I believe that once we feel that we are being listened to and heard by another we can express our authentic self; the parts of us that may be hidden in everyday life.

You maybe seeking support/help when things have become tough, difficult, or overwhelming that could be having an impact on health, mental health, on work, family, partner or affecting other relationships. Maybe past events are having an impact on you today in your life that you feel you need to talk about with a trusted professional, in a confidential way, where you will not be judge or criticised. This could be because you want to address issues around self esteem, sexual abuse, stress related work, health problems, trauma or bereavement. It could be that you need the space to off load, be listened to to find a new perspective

You may be here because you want to feel better. It could be that you are struggling with an immediate life problem such as a specific anxiety, depression or life situation that you need someone to help you with. Or it may be a general feeling that something in life doesn't seem right and you want to explore it. Making sense of it can be difficult on your own. Through counselling, I can help you make sense of what is happening so that you can start to feel more like the person that you want to be.

I am a creative psychotherapist who works frequently with adults, teens, and pre-teens, who feel overwhelmed by symptoms relating to anxiety, depression, and experiences of trauma; who wish to understand themselves better in order to move forwards. My specialism is offering a therapy experience which involves both conversation, and creative tools/techniques, to help people get to the heart of their issues. Have you ever felt like how you feel is beyond words? Or that you don't want to speak directly about what is troubling you? If so, rest assured that there are lots of other ways to engage in therapy, and that is my speciality.

We all have times in life when things seem to get on top of us. We may feel confused, anxious or depressed. Sometimes it feels like we are just going round in circles, getting nowhere in particular. Having someone to talk to can lighten the load and this is often easier with someone other than family or friends.

I offer a safe space in which you can speak and be listened to without judgement or expectation. As a psychoanalytically informed counsellor, I encourage you to speak about whatever comes to mind and to follow your thoughts wherever they lead. You may have a diagnosis or have your own terms for how you are suffering - we can start there. What we may find is that issues of identity and subjectivity follow - how you see yourself in relation to those around you now or in the past and possibly, in the future....

Feeling stuck is more common than you might think. Your thoughts are piling up, and it feels like the harder you try to sort them out, the more tangled they become. It's natural to cling on to old stuff because it feels safe or familiar, or perhaps you can't quite pinpoint what's up. These moments often show up disguised as stress, a sense of being overwhelmed, or feeling low. There might be signs physically and mentally, telling you it's time for something different. You might also be searching for a new playlist for your mind, wondering if it's even possible as everything seems to be stuck on loop.
