Welcome to my profile. Making sense of yourself as a whole can feel like a daunting process to go through alone. Understanding your sense of identity and how to build your confidence up is something that is possible within the sessions that I offer. I provide an open, empathic and safe space to allow you to truly explore your ideas and emotions in understanding yourself within your world as well as providing an opportunity to have the support to flourish and develop your self esteem.

Not accepting new clients
Often clients come to me when they are seeking deep or broad change in themselves. They have often tried more brief forms of therapy, including CBT. Commonly, this has helped but not enough, and there is a wish or a need to get to something deeper over a longer period of time. I work with a range of presenting issues, most commonly depression, anxiety and 'people pleasing', stuckness and relationship problems. What my clients tend to have in common is a wish to understand themselves at some depth, including how the past is unconsciously impacting on their present lives. This forms the starting point for change in the self.

If anxiety is getting in the way of you living your life the way you want to, we can work together to change that. Anxiety can creep up on us and there doesn't need to have been a big trigger for it to have a real impact on our lives. I work with people to overcome a range of anxiety based difficulties and have a particular interest in supporting people with OCD, phobias and panic attacks. Cognitive behavioural therapy can help you understand your anxiety, become less fearful of it and find ways to tackle it. Therapy can also help you to recognise what you are already doing that is helpful - there is always more than you think!

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.

Being human is hard, but you don't have to go it alone. I can help you gain clarity about your needs and values. To slow down and pay more attention to your thoughts and emotional or behavioural patterns, which may be happening automatically or out of habit. To understand what their intentions are or what they’re trying to tell you about your life. To understand how you relate and talk to yourself, and to develop a more compassionate voice towards your self. This understanding will then be our guide for helping you to set goals and priorities for your therapy or your life, and for supporting you to work towards them.

Hello and welcome! I understand how difficult it can be to embark on a journey of self healing and discovery such as counselling- whether you are ready to pick up the phone right this second or you are just browsing for now, the fact that you have made it this far is a huge step. I believe that no two individuals are the same and my practice reflects this.

I aim to create a safe and welcoming place where you can feel confident to talk and work together to get you back to your best. There is no doubt that there will be times when you may find it difficult to talk about yourself and your experiences. As we work together, we will explore this, and as you grow, we may even have moments of silence and indeed smiles as this can play an important part in recovery, and growth. This space will hopefully enable you to say the things you may not have said before, test new ideas out, and slowly enable you to reorganise your intrusive or uncomfortable thoughts.
