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.

Do people tell you how good you are at coping? Do you feel like you put on a smile and a brave face but wonder if sooner or later you're going to get 'found out'? Perhaps you're struggling to manage changes that you tell yourself aren't anything to get upset about, but they FEEL big. Maybe you don't even know what's wrong, but you feel unhappy or unsettled and you are fed up with feeling like this. Maybe you feel burnt out and like you're always the responsible one. You want to feel like you're more in control and to better understand what's going on. Above all, you want to feel BETTER.

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.

Making the decision to start counselling can feel like a huge step.  It’s also important that you choose a therapist that feels right for you, and that too may feel daunting. Perhaps you’ve been struggling alone, feel overwhelmed or anxious and life feels unmanageable.  Or maybe you feel stuck, lost, hopeless or depressed. Counselling can help us make sense of our life, be transformative and help us understand our relationships with ourselves and others.

Examining thoughts, feelings, and emotions is a path that leads to adjusting our behaviours and lives in less unfortunate directions. Therapy helps because it is an environment where we try and unfold thoughts, feelings and underlying concerns that seem to be burdening your decisions and life. At times it can be challenging to re-examine difficult situations or simply talk about current issues; however, it is this first step of talking through these moments that can improve one’s life. I am a psychotherapist with experience in the UK and abroad.
