There are times in all of our lives where we will feel overwhelmed and may struggle to cope with day-to-day life. We may feel low in mood, anxious, feel a loss of self-esteem or just not know what to do. We start losing control over our thoughts, our emotions, feelings, and reactions.  Therapy can be difficult but it can also provide you with the support you need to manage the difficulties and challenges you may be experiencing in life. Working collaboratively using a range of skills, I want to help you feel more in control of your thoughts, emotions and reactions.

My main work consists of Couples counselling as well as trauma focused work, which includes childhood trauma. The work involves psycho education around brain fragments, where clients work to assess when they are operating from the frontal lobe and when they switch to the limbic system where they are reliving old trauma memories. Since Covid there has been an increased demand for couples work. A lot of work is around working with couples in troubled relationships. I work with children and young people who have experienced trauma and sexual abuse as well as bereavement support work.

Life can be overwhelming at times, and we may feel that we don't have control of what is happening in our relationships, family, friends and work. We can be presented with many issues and not know how to process them. You want to speak to someone who will not judge. You want a safe space to talk through what is in your head and know you are free to be heard. Over time we can tend to bury what may have happened to us in our past and our present. These feelings and thoughts can be processed in a way that helps you grow into your awareness and healing.

The relationships and experiences that we have, shape the way that we understand the world around. These can make us feel uneasy, and we need to think out aloud. Having an objective ear can help to better understand ourselves. This can be related to personal relationships, our working life, family challenges, life events and many aspects of the world around us. I offer a space that works ethically, and within the boundaries of confidentiality and safeguarding. I aim to support exploration of how challenges and concerns can be overcome in a collaborative way and at your pace. I offer individual counselling.

Asking for help and deciding to go for counselling can feel nerve racking and scary. People come from all different walks of life and there is no right or wrong reason for deciding counselling could be something that could help you. It could be something that feels quite insignificant for you or perhaps it is something that is feeling overwhelming and there is no space for anything else. Whatever it is, it seems important to me that you are reaching out by looking on here for some further help or support, please get in touch for an informal chat to see if i can help you.
