Anxiety and panic attacks; depression or trauma, loss and bereavement; relationship issues and life transitions - we can all face difficulties in our lives. These difficulties can feel painful and often insurmountable. I offer a safe and accepting environment in which you can explore your thoughts and express your feelings without judgement. As we understand and make sense of the difficulties and issues you face, we can open up choices and greater freedom. With choices, change becomes possible and, with it, the opportunity to live a more fulfilling and joyful life. I also work with EMDR to help resolve PTSD , trauma and anxieties.

A trusting relationship is crucial to successful therapy so I always endeavor to provide a welcoming caring, confidential, and, non-judgemental space to express and explore thoughts, feelings, and experiences without the worry of how others may feel or react. I believe you are your own expert and will encourage you to reflect and find your own answers. Together we will work to find the root of your challenges by exploring repeating patterns in your life, your beliefs, emotional attachments, and anything that may have stopped you from being your best self and living a life of satisfaction and contentment.

Sometimes feelings of being lost, angry, sad and fearful may appear without reason. Sometimes we know exactly where it's coming from. You may be seeking something, some awareness, meaning or acceptance. You could feel stuck in patterns, unable to move through them or understand where they may be coming from. Maybe it's time to tend to those parts of you that are hurting from what you've been through. To heal, we need to be seen, heard and understood in an environment that we can feel safe in. Together, we can create that and explore and process through those current and past issues.

Hi and welcome. I know how daunting it can be to start therapy but we can work together to explore your current difficulties, looking at them through a new lens so you have greater insight and perspective. By building a warm & trusting relationship with you I can enable you to feel heard and understood, make sense of your feelings or maybe understand why you are not feeling, gain greater insight into your inner emotional world, accept those parts of yourself you may not like, help you to manage difficult people and teach you how to turn off your inner 'critical voice' so you become more forgiving and kinder to yourself and others.

There may be a host of reasons why you are considering counselling at the moment. Perhaps you are feeling anxious, depressed or having difficulty processing past experiences? Maybe you have realised that you keep repeating the same self-defeating patterns and getting the same negative outcomes? Or perhaps you want to build your self-confidence and find the power to change and be the person you want to be...? Life can can feel overwhelming and challenging but you have the ability to make profound and lasting changes, and I would love to help you.

Trauma and PTSD Counsellors

When should I seek treatment for trauma?

Not everyone who undergoes trauma needs therapy to heal, but many do. If, after experiencing a traumatic event, you find yourself struggling with symptoms such as nightmares, dissociation, irritability, or emotional numbness—especially if these symptoms last more than a month and are severe enough to interfere with your daily functioning—you may benefit from seeking out therapy with a trauma-informed provider.

How long does trauma therapy take?

Different types of therapy for trauma unfold on different timelines. Prolonged exposure therapy and cognitive processing therapy, for example, each take about three months, while trauma-informed CBT may last anywhere from 8 to 25 sessions. Other approaches, especially those that are less structured or that incorporate elements from multiple modalities, may be more open-ended, though many patients report feeling better within the first few months of treatment.

What happens if trauma is left untreated?

Unaddressed trauma can have serious—even devastating—effects on relationships, career, and day-to-day functioning. Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) can lead people to distrust or lash out at others, making it difficult to maintain intimate relationships; it can also trigger symptoms such as flashbacks or hyperreactivity that can interfere with a person’s ability to function effectively, personally and/or professionally. Some sufferers turn to drugs to find relief. Symptoms may lessen on their own with time, but there is no guarantee that PTSD will resolve on its own.

Can PTSD come back after treatment?

It is possible for PTSD symptoms to recur months or years after successful treatment. This is because, like most mental health disorders, it is not possible to “cure” PTSD, and stressful life events may cause symptoms to recur in even the most resilient individuals. There is no shame in re-experiencing PTSD symptoms nor in returning to therapy when such relapses occur; indeed, many forms of trauma therapy explicitly encourage periodic “maintenance sessions” to reinforce coping skills and ensure that symptoms stay manageable.
