I'm here to support client's who have challenging lives which are affected by anxiety disorders, depression, bereavement or who feels stuck in their relationship patterns. We build our attachment styles from a young age. We can find ourselves stuck in the same attachment patterns as we get older. I have supported clients to face their own attachment fears that impact their personal relationships. Also worked with clients who have self-harm and suicidal ideation and supported them to face their missing voids.

We may use different words to describe what's going on for us when we are looking for therapy: unsure, fed up, low, empty, frustrated, anxious, panicky, over-thinking, unable to sleep, too sensitive, or like can't carry on... Perhaps feeling not in control, not belonging, invisible or wanting to escape, or lost. It can be overwhelming, taking too much from us. So starting therapy is right. We can use therapy space, free of judgement, expectation or failure, to talk it all through and work things out.

Most of us will struggle with something at one point in our lives or another, some times this can be an illness or lack of support, others can be triggered by a life changing event, a relationship breakdown, a loss of career, or maybe a bereavement or a past trauma, all of which can lead to us feeling overwhelmed and leave us struggling with day to day tasks. Sometimes we just need a sounding board, someone to listen to help us process and untangle the thoughts and feelings we are experiencing. I myself know how hard this admission and acknowledgment can be and seeking help is not always easy.

Female Counsellors

Does it matter what gender my therapist is?

In general, this is not an important factor, as there is no relationship between a therapist’s gender and their efficacy. Some clients, however, prefer to see therapists of a particular gender, whether due to their own past experiences with men and women, or ingrained beliefs about how people of different genders think and behave. Exploring the roots of such preferences and considering what one wants to address in therapy can help someone determine whether their therapist’s gender truly matters to them.

Should I see a female therapist?

Many people—not just women—prefer to see a female therapist, either because they believe that a woman will be able to relate to their specific challenges (for example, sexism in the workplace) or because they imagine feeling more comfortable disclosing sensitive information to a woman. Such beliefs may not turn out to be accurate, however, and adhering too rigidly to a gender preference can at times hinder a client from finding the best therapeutic match.

Do therapists get specific training to help with women’s concerns?

Therapists are trained to provide care to clients of any gender. However, some therapists—both men and women—may pursue additional training in feminist therapy, gender-specific issues, or women’s mental health. Female clients may wish to ask prospective therapists whether they have received specific training in the client’s primary area(s) of concern, or whether they have worked extensively with women on issues similar to their own.

How can I inquire about a therapist’s experience in treating women?

It’s OK—even encouraged!—to ask a therapist directly whether and how often they have treated women in the past, or whether they have treated women dealing with the client’s most prominent concern(s). Competent therapists will be happy to share their educational background, preferred treatment modalities, and prior client experience to help an individual find the therapist best suited to their needs.
