You may be seeking counselling for a specific issue such as: stress, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem or feeling sad and these are all good reasons for seeking support. Alternatively your reason might be more difficult to put into words, not everyone has an identifiable reason for seeking support. Whatever your reason for counselling, I provide a confidential and non-judgmental space where your experiences, thoughts and feelings can be expressed and explored.

Relationships can be complicated and when they are not going well, they can lead to stress, anxiety, low mood, isolation and disconnection. We can work together to understand how and why these difficulties may have arisen and what needs to change. This may be the relationship you have with yourself (perhaps issues with self esteem, confidence, anxiety, sadness or uncertainty about your future). It might be the relationship you have with family members (where there might be tension, illness, parenting difficulties) or with your partner (where you might be struggling with disconnection, infidelity, separation).

I'm an integrative counsellor, which means that I don't believe there is a one size fits all approach when it comes to therapy. So whether you prefer structured CBT or to express yourself through the arts I will tailor therapy according to your needs. I have years of experience working with both women and young people, having worked for respected charities like Women's Aid (as a Domestic abuse specialist) and Off the Record. I have a good understanding of the issues that specifically effect these groups, and I feel passionate about enabling both to have their voices heard.

The most important element of counselling is the connection you have with your counsellor. I know how important it is for you to feel heard, validated, and aligned with the person you are choosing to trust. I started training as a therapist seven years ago, in my early twenties, as I wanted to help people in a more in depth way. I have since then enjoyed helping a wide range of people from all walks of life get to a better psychological and emotional pIace, with most of my experience focussing on working with children & young adults (9-30).

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.
