I work with a range of difficulties in a collaborative and client-led way. I integrate my training and experience to meet the unique needs of each individual. You may not know what this is to begin with but together we can create a psychological understanding and most importantly a plan that feels right for you. After all you are the expert on yourself! I value subjective experience and seek to ensure my clients feel heard, respected and safe. No one size fits all when it comes to therapy.

Children and teenagers can benefit from counselling therapies, and studies show that these are hugely effective, both in the short and long term. For older kids and teens, talking therapy can provide a unique space to safely explore what's going on to make them sad, angry, or anxious. For younger children, using play and art, as well as talking therapy, can help them begin to piece together things that might be difficult for them. Life doesn't always go according to plan, and sometimes things happen that no one is prepared for - an accident, a traumatic experience, a situation no one could have foreseen happening.

I believe our mental health is of uttermost importance at all times, but especially today when the whole world is experiencing shared anxiety and uncertainty. I would like to offer a helping hand in what may be a very difficult time for you. If you feel stuck in a loop or unable to find joy in life, I can offer my curiosity, empathy, and insights to help you find meaning in your experience. To do this, I will often draw on my background in psychology as well as on psychoanalytic and object-relations ideas which attempt to link what you're experiencing in the present with your early childhood and family experiences.

Are you anxious and finding life overwhelming, suddenly the simplest decisions are impossible - this may be situational, relational or historical; large or small I offer a space to speak freely secure in the knowledge our sessions are confidential. My theory is person centred although I offer Integrative therapy which is a progressive form of psychotherapy that combines different therapeutic tools and approaches to fit the needs of the individual client.

I know how difficult it can be to make a change and to start therapy. Some of us are not used to asking for help, perhaps we tell ourselves that we’re not worth anyone’s time. Or perhaps there is something that has been unspoken for a long time. If you are looking for your children then it can be so difficult to know who is best suited to help them through their issues. For all those looking for counselling I will try to make the first steps easy by offering a free half an hour to talk over the phone to discuss your needs. If we agree on making a start (short-term or open ended), we can move through the sessions at your pace.

Throughout every stage of life, we can experience times when things just don’t feel right and we struggle to make sense of our world and relationships. This experience is often different to those who are important to us, which although makes us uniquely human can also create much conflict and anxiety within our relationships. Working alongside you, whether individually or as a couple my role is to support you to share your story and consider where you are at and where you might like to be. What might be different and what might another perspective look like?

You may be feeling hurt, sad, anxious, angry, nervous, ashamed or lonely. Or a combination of these. Maybe you lack confidence or self esteem. Maybe your social or intimate relationships are causing you stress. Maybe you lack self-care. Maybe, quite simply, life could be better. Importantly, neither searching the internet nor self help books have been enough, and you need someone to talk to. Someone who will listen to you without judgement, and who will acknowledge and help you process your sometimes overwhelming feelings. Equally, you may be looking for a therapist to work with by way of self development.
