I have a heart for those who haven't felt heard or understood and I will treat what you share with the utmost care. I can offer you compassion where maybe you feel you haven't received it before, or maybe you feel like you don't deserve it because that internal voice tells you you are not good enough. I can help you discover the roots of that voice, weakening its influence over you and allowing you to build a new voice that is encouraging and supportive. Everyone deserves to have their voice heard, what you think and how you feel really is important to me.

Life can be really difficult at times for all of us and sometimes problems can feel overwhelming. Counselling and Psychotherapy can provide a safe and private space to explore the issues with someone who has enough distance from your life to be along side you whilst you find what it is that you need. I think people come to Counselling when they decide within themselves something in their life needs to change, be that an external change or a change in a way of feeling, I have a decades experience in building meaningful, containing, supportive relationships and can be alongside you whilst you find what it is that you need.

Time spent with a counsellor can allow you the space to talk about and explore any issues or difficulties you may be experiencing. My decision to become a counsellor was based upon a desire to be of help to others and make a difference during distressing times. I feel with my experience and understanding I am well placed to offer support. I truly believe that good mental health and mental wellbeing is essential for all of us.

Are family dynamics causing you stress? Perhaps you need a space where you can explore how you REALLY feel; away from the expectations set by your family. Is there an unwritten rule in your family that you must not speak about problems or bad behaviour? Does this leave you feeling silenced and frustrated? If you're looking for someone who understands these struggles because they've lived it too, then I might be the right therapist for you.

Parenting Counsellors

What does therapy for parenting look like?

Therapists may work with parents individually, together, or include the whole family to find solutions for the problems a parent faces. Many parent-based therapies work on a parent’s relationship with their children, problem-solving within the family, and analysis of family dynamics. Therapy conducted remotely by video may be helpful in allowing a therapist to observe how families interact in their own homes.

When should a parent seek therapy?

When behavioral problems begin to disrupt the healthy functioning of a family, it may be a good time to look into therapy. If parents find that children are acting out in school, have started using drugs or alcohol, have developed eating disorders, or other similar red flags, a therapist may be able to help.

How long does therapy take for parenting problems?

Depending on the severity of a family’s challenges and the type of treatment utilized, therapy for parenting can last from weeks to months. Cognitive behavioral therapy is a pragmatic therapy type that can be brief, most often ranging from between 5 and 20 sessions. Structural family therapy, which inspects family dynamics, often takes several months. Parent-child interaction therapy is typically shorter-term, lasting between 10 and 20 sessions. For any therapy, the duration will depend on the progress made and results realized.

Can therapy help parents dealing with burnout or stress?

Parenting is difficult. Parents may dismiss or conceal feelings of exhaustion, overwhelm, or escape ideation—imagining withdrawing from their parental obligations altogether. but left unattended, these feelings can have negative effects on the whole family. A therapist can help parents work on the skills they might need to better cope with the burdens of parenting and help them be the best parents they can be.
