The anticipated outcome from our therapeutic relationship would be for you to find healing and wholeness in the work we do together. My training and experience means nothing, unless the real me can reach out to the real you with genuine care, empathy and understanding. I am interested in being part of your journey, to help empower you to fully engage in what life has to offer rather than being trapped within pain, trauma or unhappiness which can be devouring. Nothing makes me happier to see the broken get in touch with their true selves, their cause of emotional pain or anxieties, and to share that growth, change and healing.
Are you feeling a bit overwhelmed, anxious or uncertain? Do you feel unable to cope or have low self esteem? You may be facing new challenges and difficulties or perhaps you are stuck and don't know where to turn or what to do. Troubling times can leave us feeling hopeless, sad, and wondering what the point of it is. Therapy is a place for you to work through these things and find ways to feel better in yourself and hopeful for the future.
You are at a crossroads in your life... perhaps you feel 'stuck'. Things may not be going your way and you're reaching breaking point. Perhaps your health is affected too! Yet, deep down, you know there is more to life than this! You want to be the person you know you are meant to be... To feel better, live with intention and take back the reigns, so you are in control of your life.
If you have a relationship issue, I may be able to help you. I work with couples and individuals for a variety reasons; stuck in a cycle of bickering, poor communication, cross cultural issues, fertility difficulties, contemplating separation or an affair. It may surprise you but I also see couples who want a 'relationship MOT', to check in before any issues present themselves. This is helpful if you plan to marry/civil partnership, starting a family, co-parenting, are 'empty nesters' or entering later stages of life.
We all have stressful and challenging times in our lives; talking about and exploring your problems without being judged may be able to help you clarify your difficult thoughts and feelings. Counselling gives you the time and space to just be yourself and talk about what's going on for you.

I have worked with clients struggling with a variety of issues, for example: addiction, anger, stress, depression, anxiety, low self esteem, the effects of trauma, relationship problems, phobias, exploring meaning and spirituality. Counselling can be an amazing time of change with precious moments in the process. It works partly because the client feels freer to talk to someone outside their situation.
Specialising in Addiction, Trauma, Anxiety, Relationships, Attachment and Intimacy.

Life can be hard and managing feelings or situations can sometimes be overwhelming. Whatever you are faced with, I’m here to support you. I work with adults and teenagers whenever they need support.
Life can be a tough journey sometimes and it can seem even worse when you feel that you are walking alone. I would like to share that journey with you.

I work with warmth and empathy and from a non-judgemental approach enabling you to reflect on your feelings and the changes you may want to make within the context of a strong therapeutic relationship.
I have been in private practice for over 9 years. I gained extensive experience working in various setting such as Rape and Sexual Abuse centre in Guildford, GP surgery and a Drug and Alcohol charity. Working in these settings increased my knowledge and understanding with working with a variety of mental health issues around trauma, depression, anxiety and addictions. I have a particular interest in working with abuse (childhood, emotional and physical) and issues around relationship difficulties particularly toxic relationships. I offer both long and short term therapy depending on your specific needs.
Whether you're experiencing anxiety, depression, having relationship difficulties or have suffered trauma...reaching out for help is the first step to making things better. Counselling can offer you a space to explore your challenges in a supportive and non-judgemental environment. I can assist you by identifying your inner resources to tackle the difficulties and manage the feelings triggered so you can lead more rewarding and fulfilling life.
My practice allows you to talk about what is on your mind and what is mattering in your heart. Anxiety, ruminating thoughts, tricky emotions, sadness may put you in a dark place. There are ways you can modulate your feelings and find ways to normalise your life again.
I understand that seeking therapy can be both comforting and daunting, but it can also be liberating and I commend individuals who reach out for help. Our pain can often be a message that there is something amiss in our lives, and I believe it is important that we listen to that message. Whether you are dealing with a difficult time in your life and need help managing the emotions and thoughts, I aim to assist individuals to better understand the relationship between their feelings and thoughts and explore ways to change maladaptive patterns.
