Do you feel you don’t have goals or you can’t achieve them although you have tried everything? Do you feel paralysed or overwhelmed facing certain situations? Do you feel everything is annoying or your anger, sadness or fear last for long time? Do you feel stuck with some thoughts and you can’t stop overthinking them? Do you see these features within a member of your family? I think everyone will feel like this over the course of our lives, even it can be adaptative. However, sometimes we can struggle to find clarity and understanding , at the same time that respect both ourselves and others.

Hello. Everything you are feeling in this moment is real and that’s ok. You may feel that no one understands and this can feel lonely. Struggling with the feelings of sadness, anger, guilt, depression, or anxiety, are typical responses of grief and trauma because of Reproductive trauma. This can include Infertility, IVF treatment, IVF and Donor conception, Pregnancy loss, Termination for medical reason, Birth trauma or Neonatal death. It's most likely that this is not how you thought it would be. And it’s also likely that this is the first time in your life that you feel out of control.

You may be looking here because you are dealing with upsetting or challenging feelings and experiences, feeling overwhelmed, or having troubles in your relationships. If so, psychotherapy could help you. In the psychotherapy sessions you can explore various aspects of your life and feelings, talking about them freely and openly in a way that is rarely possible with friends or family. Bottled-up feelings such as anger, anxiety, grief and embarrassment can become very intense and counselling offers an opportunity to explore them, with the possibility of making them easier to understand.

Hi there! I specialise in working with complex emotional needs using a range of evidence based therapies. My clients have often experienced a range of adverse experiences such as trauma, neglect or emotional abuse and may be experiencing depression, anxiety, low self worth, intense emotionality or difficulty in relationships. I see people for both longer term and time limited therapy.

I also provide supervision and training to other psychologists and institutions.

I entered the world of psychotherapy so I could manage and eventually overcome the painful emotions and thoughts that I had experienced. If this is the case for you, then psychotherapy can help you explore uncomfortable feelings that have held you back from living life to the full. Life often throws the unexpected at us, be it through relationships, either personal or professional, we sometimes find it difficult to cope alone and need the support to help us through this difficult time.
