I am currently offering telephone, online video and face to face counselling by appointment. If you are currently looking for a counsellor it may well be that you have reached a point of change. You can no longer put up with the current situation you feel you are in. You may be suffering anxious feelings or low mood, or be struggling with anger and frustration, or any number of other concerns. These are feelings that we all experience from time to time, but they can be limiting and have an effect on our general happiness and satisfaction with life.

Most of us are taught from an early age that we should hide parts of ourselves to get by. As the person we are pulls away from the person we’re told we should be, we’re left with lingering distress and a struggle to feel truly connected and at home within ourselves. I believe the more we understand, accept and nurture ourselves, the more equipped to find the connection, community and purpose we’re longing for. Perhaps you feel that sense of struggle, or are feeling unmoored from the person you really are. Perhaps you're looking for support as you grow and find your way.

As a lead therapist in a prestigious rehab, as well as private practice, I manage other counsellors and work with clients bringing a specialism of trauma into the treatment of addiction. My training, studies and experience, both professionally and personally has taken me toward looking at addiction as a symptom of psychological trauma. Trauma is often rooted in relationship difficulties, which may mean we need to experience trusting interactions and connections in order to repair the original wound or to understand the carnage addiction may cause.

My ideal client would be someone wanting to gain self-awareness and insight into themselves. A person who is ready to seek a space for exploration and wants to use it to find out who they are, not what society and other people are telling them they should be, but their authentic voice. The client would want to find greater freedom by exploring the life journey they have been on and what this has meant to them. It's not for me to tell the client what their goals are but for me to provide them with a therapeutic space so they can find out for themselves.

Looking for a therapist can be an overwhelming experience; however, it is already a good step in your journey. You may be needing to be listened to or seeking support for a particular challenge. Emotional pain and mental distress need a space to be explored and processed and therapy can offer a safe environment for this.Counseling and psychotherapy can provide an opportunity to be in a safe space where you can be listened to by someone who is unbiased and non-judgmental. By sharing your story and your experiences, and building trust and openness in the relationship with your therapist, we can attempt to gain deeper understanding.

You’re not alone. 1 in 4 of us will experience mental health difficulties in our lifetime. Fortunately, more and more people are now reaching out to learn how to overcome it.

At the deepest level of your being, you are already whole, complete and spontaneously yourself. However, as is the case with many of us, some painful life experience, psychological wounding, loss and other challenging moments led to an internal fragmentation in which some parts of yourself became more dominant and other parts became hidden. In therapy we will explore how this fragmentation occurred and focus on restoring your wholeness. By listening to the rejected and abandoned parts of your being, we will give these elements a voice, with the aim of recovering your balance and your inherent openness and relaxation.

Why counselling - There are times where the pressures of life can leave us feeling overwhelmed. For many of us how we feel within ourselves is crucial in day to day life. Wherever we may find ourselves the process of counselling can give us the ability to sculpt and create a vision of belonging that is both true to ourselves and allows us to flourish. What I provide is a non-judgemental, warm and genuine approach focused on person centred therapy. This approach ensures that the client is held throughout the process and feels comfortable exploring experiences both past and present in a safe environment.

So often in our lives we reach a place where we are struggling in some capacity or another. It may be a deep-rooted issue that goes back to childhood, a past relationship or a trauma. It may be some destructive behaviour such as a form of self-harm or an eating disorder. It may be a negative thought process that is having an impact on our daily life. Whatever the issue, I believe counselling can help. Having a place where we can allow ourselves time and a calm space to think, talk and work things out can be absolutely priceless.

I am passionate about Humans' ability to heal when they feel supported and accompanied on their personal life path. We all have greater potential and resources than we think. A lot of the times it is difficult to access this for various (and many) reasons... Fear, trauma, beliefs, illness... Transformation or change is possible. Sometimes we can "shut down" so much emotionally, that we don't even notice we do. Therapy can help with exploring our ways and difficulties to relate, and be in this world as well as what empowers us.

I have a particular interest in trauma and how it impacts our nervous system: PTSD and C-PTSD, dissociation, hearing voices, addictive behaviours and coping mechanisms and their link to childhood trauma; 'ACE's' (Adverse Childhood Experiences), and how these affect us as adults. Trauma comes in many forms; obvious, overt ones such as physical or sexual abuse, car accidents, war, disasters etc, and also less obvious or covert forms like emotional abuse or neglect, bullying, or just 'not getting what we need' on an emotional level. In addition to being a trainee member of UKCP and BCPC, I have specialist trauma training:

Each professional in BS8 then may specialise in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counselling, or anxiety. Although many mental health providers are not licensed to prescribe medication, they may coordinate with a provider who can.
