I am a fully accredited Cognitive Behavioural Therapist with the BABCP.My skills, interests and experience are primarily in eating disorders, depression and anxiety disorders. It is not unusual to feel lost and stuck in your illness, and it can feel anxiety provoking and frightening when initially asking for help. You may feel conflicted about letting go of your illness as you may find it helps and protects you at times - this is not uncommon - and we will spend some time at the start of therapy understanding what is keeping you stuck and working through some of these conflicting feelings in order to decide together the best ways to

Taking the first step into counselling can be one of the hardest choices. Whether you're looking for short-term support or want to explore deeper issues on a more open-ended basis.Therapy offers a confidential, empathic and supportive space to help you explore your challenges. I believe in the power of a good connection between two people, to enable the client to unlock their potential and find courage, confidence, inspiration, to help them continue to be the best they can be.

Perhaps you are feeling lost, in a 'strange place' or no longer feel yourself to be the person you once were. You'd like to understand why this is and talk about your difficult feelings with someone who is non-judgmental and who can help you better understand them.

Do you feel overwhelmed by your feelings? Do they impact on your confidence and day-to-day life? Or perhaps you have experienced painful losses, abuse or traumatic events that are affecting you? Do you have patterns of behaviour that no longer feel beneficial to you? Sometimes we think and act in certain ways that function to protect and preserve us. These have felt necessary in the past, but are no longer useful and can instead impact negatively on our life.

I specialise in anxiety, depression, relationship issues, work or university related stress, and living with illness. We all face times when we feel confused, stuck or lacking in clarity, yet we’d like to feel more confident and clear. During these challenging or uncertain times, talking to someone who listens, yet has distance from the issue, can really help. I offer compassionate, non-judgmental, confidential yet proactive therapy in a safe and supportive space. I work with individuals and couples, in the evenings (5-9pm) and Saturday mornings.

I know choosing an anonymous counsellor just from a few words and a photo on a screen can be unnerving and it may be difficult to feel like you are making an informed decision, so I want our initial consultation to be an opportunity for you to make sure I am the right person for you to work with and for me to make sure I have to experience and expertise to work with you. After this consultation, there is no requirement or expectation for you to book another session and I will always be guided by you, what you want and what you need.

Sometimes you may be feeling sad or feeling the weight of anxiety. You may be dealing with relationship issues, traumatic event or might not know why you feel unhappy, and need help to move forward in a safe space. You may want to explore and work on yourself, in a non-non-judgemental environment, or want to talk about difficult issues with someone you feel comfortable talking to. Some years ago, I went on my own journey through therapy, which helped me to understand the process of counselling, and value of being in a safe space with someone who showed me genuiness, acceptance, and empathy.

With 30 years broad experience assisting many grateful clients over the years, I warmly welcome you to embark on a healing journey of greater self-compassion and self-acceptance. Suffering results not only from harsh life circumstances and trauma but also from difficulty accepting and connecting with our very human vulnerable feelings. Loneliness, anxiety, depression and anger problems may emerge, triggered by additional stress. Fulfilling relationships come from making wise choices and from an ability to open the heart to self and others. Together we can gently explore underlying damaging life experiences and work towards healing.

In an ideal world, everyone should have someone, they can talk to. But the world isn't ideal and talking to someone you know may be difficult, or even problematic. So I can help. There’s a Chinese proverb that I like - ‘reading ten thousand scrolls, rather walk ten thousand miles.’ When we search for answers, our first point is the internet or books but what we can’t grasp from written literature, is the life experiences of interactions and 'light bulb' moments. My journeys have covered more than ten thousand miles. I have encountered and experienced many difficulties myself and I want to help you to overcome yours and feel better.
