I appreciate how difficult it can be to start counselling. What can prompt an enquiry can differ from one person to another. For some there may be a long standing desire to talk to a counsellor, and maybe now just feels right. For others there maybe something that has happened in their life such as a breakdown in a relationship or a loss in their life that prompts a contact to be made. Alternatively, they may be consumed by feelings such as depression, anxiety , fear, anger or resentment. At times like these counselling can be helpful and offer much needed support.

I support those who are neurodivergent - Autism, ADHD, ASD etc along with depression, anxiety , self harm, low self-esteem, bereavement, coping with being in care & adoption and many other presenting issues.
It's not always easy to reach out and ask for support. We often feel that we can manage on our own or don't want to bother anyone with our thoughts and feelings. It can be hard to find a balance between work, relationships, family & other commitments to prioritise yourself. No matter what brings you to therapy the most important part is the relationship we will share. I aim to ensure you feel heard & give you a space to work through anything you want to bring to help you have a greater insight & self-awareness and I will walk alongside you on this journey. Counselling isn't a one size fits all package it's as individual as you are.

Hello, are you feeling low? experiencing anxiety ? dealing with a loss or bereavement? Maybe you are struggling with emotional issues from the past that are intruding in your current life? At times we can find life difficult and struggle to make sense of it. Overcoming our problems on our own or talking with people we are closest to can be hard so speaking confidentially to a counsellor may be what you are looking for. Talking helps you to explore your thoughts and feelings so you can get a clearer view of your life. I will listen without judgement to how it feels to be you so you can discover what really matters to you.

I have a specialist interest in working with people who have suffered or are suffering abuse. Abuse can happen to anyone, any gender any age any type such as physical, emotional, sexual and even financial. I will create a safe environment where it is warm and non judgemental. I will be open and genuine so we are able to work towards growth, change and your full potential. We can do this by talking, or creatively by art or a sand tray, which can bridge what is going on in the unconscious to the conscious to then become aware of what may be holding us back.

I am an Arts Psychotherapist and DDP practitioner with over 14 years experience. When life feels overwhelming or unmanageable therapy can provide a safe space in which feelings and thoughts can be shared confidentially and without judgement. By exploring concerns you have and working with words and creative exercises difficult feelings can be untangled, understood and healing can occur. This can give you the feeling of confidence, strength and freedom, feel more in control and restore a sense of balance in your life.

In my experience people can struggle to cope with how they feel. They don't know why they feel how they do, they don't know how to change it, and often they have tried so many different avenues of help. What I offer is someone who tries to hear what you are saying, who allows you to say things, who tries to reflect back to you the emotions that I hear - often a whole mixture of emotions. I offer myself as someone who wants to be part of your journey, someone who gets it wrong sometimes but tries to get it right. I am interested in working with dreams and with the body. You can see more on the blogs that I have posted on my website.

Anxiety Counsellors

What are the most common treatments for anxiety?

Talk therapy, particularly cognitive behavioural therapy, is the most common treatment for anxiety. Studies have shown it is equally effective as medication. Other popular forms of therapy are popular, depending on a patient’s experience. Exposure therapy, for instance, can be useful for people dealing with fears and phobias, or who have experienced traumatic events. Dialectical Behavioural Therapy may be useful for patients who need help with emotion regulation. Anxiolytic medications, like benzodiazepines, can also help with calming a person enough to focus on the skills they’ve learned, and physical exercise has been shown to help symptoms of anxiety across the board.

How long does therapy for anxiety take to work?

The amount of time needed to alleviate symptoms depends on the severity of a person’s condition. Some therapies may take 5-20 weekly sessions to show results. Anti-depressant medications typically take two to four weeks before a benefit is felt. Anti-anxiety medications are felt typically within 20-30 minutes. Medications are best used to offer a patient a better headspace in which to work on techniques learned in therapy. Exercise, improved sleep habits, and meditation are effective, but takes weeks or months to show results.

When should I seek treatment for anxiety?

Everyone feels anxious at times, but when anxiety causes disruption to your daily life, it may be time to seek help. Such disruption can be mental, physical, or both: having fear dominate your thoughts, avoiding situations or objects that bring on feelings of anxiety, or experiencing shortness of breath, sweating, dizziness, or panic attacks. When these symptoms are recurrent and distressing, it may be time to talk to someone.

How effective is treatment for anxiety?

Treatment for anxiety has been shown to be moderately to highly effective, according to a large body of psychology studies and analyses. For some people, treatment using CBT or exposure therapy alone is effective. Others respond best to a combination of medication and therapy.
