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.

Urban living therapy and well being, is an umbrella term for the type of therapy that I offer. I am a clinical psychologist with over 15 years experience of working with people with complex psychological issues. Very often what brings clients into therapy with me is an accumulation of live stressors, both from past experiences and current everyday challenges. Anxiety, depression, poor emotional coping, self-harm, interpersonal or relationship issues are the areas they wish to address. My clients seek to resolve old issues and develop better ways of managing their emotions and relationships with others.

When emotional problems arise it can be difficult to know where to turn and pressures to cope can leave us isolated and desperate. There may be people around who offer their time but feelings of shame and fears can make it difficult to make use of them. It might be that there is no-one to speak to and problems originating in the past are getting in the way of you finding satisfaction in life. Traumas can remain unprocessed and present themselves in everyday life. Psychotherapy is a way of exploring oneself and relationships to try to make sense of the patterns and issues that are blocking you.

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.

Stress, anxiety, depression is no longer such a taboo subject, yet we often tell ourselves, I can cope with this myself or maybe nobody will want to listen because nobody has time, or how about I’m too ashamed and I blame myself so I will cope with this by myself...... Well I am here to offer you the space to speak the unspoken and explore worrying thoughts together. The problem might be a recent incident that has left you feeling unsettled or a long standing concern deep rooted in unresolved trauma that has affected you e.g. sleepless nights, social anxiety, fear, relationship issue, performance at work, mood, self worth.
