I have worked as a counsellor for many years and am both passionate and motivated as I was in the beginning. I am particularly passionate about working people who have low self-esteem as I believe this covers so many areas/issues in life. As a woman in my 50’s with various life experience this allows me to empathise and have compasion for others. Having come from a multi-cultural family with Irish roots this gives me a greater understanding of cultural diversity and a sense of belonging. I am a spiritual person who has an interest in mindfulness and Yoga.

I am currently full and unable to take on new clients. You may be seeking counselling for a specific issue such as: stress, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem or feeling sad and these are all good reasons for seeking support. Alternatively your reason might be more difficult to put into words, not everyone has an identifiable reason for seeking support. Whatever your reason for counselling, I provide a confidential and non-judgmental space where your experiences, thoughts and feelings can be expressed and explored.

People come to counselling for many reasons: Grief, relationship or work-related issues, depression, anxiety or sometimes because of a subtle feeling that something isn’t right? Therapy can help you to explore these areas of your life and to consider if you want to make changes. I offer a warm, compassionate and open space for you to explore what you need to. Whatever we discuss between us is confidential as outlined in the BACP Ethical framework for good practice.

What brings you to counselling could be any number of reasons: You may have experienced the loss of a loved one; perhaps your life is in such chaos you can no longer see the forest for the trees; or, you may simply wish to look at yourself and your patterns of behaviour in a clearer light. What I offer is a space for you to come to terms with your life, free of judgement, so that you can live it to the fullest.

At the deepest level of your being, you are already whole, complete and spontaneously yourself. However, as is the case with many of us, some painful life experience, psychological wounding, loss and other challenging moments led to an internal fragmentation in which some parts of yourself became more dominant and other parts became hidden. In therapy we will explore how this fragmentation occurred and focus on restoring your wholeness. By listening to the rejected and abandoned parts of your being, we will give these elements a voice, with the aim of recovering your balance and your inherent openness and relaxation.

Sometimes we feel stuck and can't find a way forward by ourselves. I'm here to offer you a safe space to explore what may be blocking your path and help you get back in the stream of life. Life is full of challenges, from the unhelpful beliefs we pick up in childhood, to the oppressive systems we may encounter at any stage of our development. I believe that as human beings we have an innate capacity for resilience and growth, and yet we may not always have access to the nurturing soil that will help us fulfil that potential. Therapy can help change that.

The most important element of counselling is the connection you have with your counsellor. I know how important it is for you to feel heard, validated, and aligned with the person you are choosing to trust. I started training as a therapist eight years ago, at aged twenty, as I wanted to help people in a more in depth way. I have since then enjoyed helping a wide range of people from all walks of life get to a better psychological and emotional pIace, with most of my experience focussing on working with children & young adults (12-30).

We live in a culture that promotes the idea of strong, powerful individuals who live picture perfect lives. There is little room for showing our vulnerability, or our need for connection. There is a cultural expectation that when things are difficult for us we should just 'get over it' and not make a fuss, this might manifest in you with thoughts of "what's wrong with me", "why is this so hard" and "I should be able to manage by myself" and so on! You may be feeling fragmented, ​disconnected, numb, overwhelmed, fearful, unable to cope, you might feel like giving up.

Self Esteem Counsellors
Self-esteem lives on a spectrum: Not enough self-regard (or low self esteem) can lead people to become depressed, or to tolerate abusive situations and relationships. Too much self-love (or high self-esteem), results in an off-putting sense of entitlement and an inability to learn from failure. And it's occasionally a sign of clinical narcissism. Quite the opposite of being shy or shyness, yet still on the same spectrum.
