Do you feel like a pressure cooker ready to explode? Do you feel lost and that every way you turn issues arise? Are you getting angry at people for no reason? Or feeling so down and desperate you don’t know which way to turn? It can be overwhelming sometimes even thinking about asking for help when as a culture we are supposed to be able to cope with everyday pressures. Life changing experiences and challenges such as loss, trauma or redundancy can cause unbelievable stresses on an already stressful life. It is all to easy to become stuck in a rut or to begin to struggle with daily life with all the competing pressures we face.

Taking a brave first step into seeking help through counselling can feel so difficult and yet it potentially could be life changing. I understand how that feels and hope that my natural warm persona and training in person centred counselling would enable you to begin that process. Additional training in cognitive behavioural therapy as well as extensive continued professional development allows an integrative style of work that can help with a wide range of issues and needs. Working from home as a private counsellor as well as having been employed by a local school provides a perfect balance of experiences and skills to offer help.

One in four of us experience mental health problems at some time in our lives. If you are feeling overwhelmed, anxious, low in mood, having difficulty coping, having relationship issues, not knowing who you are anymore, then help is available. Anxiety and depression are common, but talking about it, building coping strategies and dealing with the underlying problems will make a huge difference to the way that you feel. If your confidence and self-esteem is shattered, it takes time to rebuild them, make changes, accept the things you cannot change and become the person that you want to be for a more positive future.

We all have times when we have to face challenges and juggle life; this can be a very stressful time. When we are feeling, sad, alone, stressed, anxious, depressed or having relationship worries these can seem overwhelming. You may feel unable to talk to friends or family for fear of being judged. It's at times like these that we may need a helping hand, a safe place to talk, someone to talk to without feeling judged and someone who will listen to you.

Empathy and validation are the key foundations of my work and I think finding an understanding of a clients perspective helps them in turn to find solutions for peace of mind for and within themselves. Working in this client centred way has been incredibly fulfilling these last few years and having my own practice allows for real freedom to choose how we work together.

My style of therapy is great for confidence and esteem building and my clients tend to mostly share struggles in depression, anxiety and abusive relationships. If you were interested in working with me, you may often struggle with how you view yourself and often wish you could have the life you really want. You may want to feel better about you or want better relationships. You may want to know what your're good at because you've lost your sense of self. Your goals could be around building confidence, work, friendships and finding time to also explore and perhaps develop yourself. These are areas I can help you address.

Often clients contact me when other therapy has not helped them in the way they had hoped. This is often due to the complexity of difficulties being layered perhaps in a history of trauma. Distress in the body and mind can be triggered by what appears to be something superficial. This can open up the past or come at a time when our emotional resilience is low so this event has a greater impact than it may have done. We can find ourselves not being able to function in our normal way. Many clients often identify as 'good copers' and those who 'just get on with it'. Perhaps we can't now - this is frightening and can derail us.

I think sometimes we just reach that place in life when we say 'enough is enough'. For some it can mean it is time to stop and face something, and to someone else it can mean it is maybe time to 'let it go'. There's no end to the potential meanings for reaching 'that point'. i think we've all been there at some stage or another. Does this sound familiar ? That's okay, i totally understand where you're coming from. What is important is acknowledging that you have had the energy and motivation to seek someone to support you through this - it takes courage and strength to take this step. Well done!

We all experience challenges in life but sometimes these can become overwhelming and we feel unable to work through them alone. Often people don't feel able to, or don't want to discuss their concerns with friends or family as they are afraid to upset or burden them. It is my role to listen to you - I choose to do that.
