My aim is to help you to live a rich and meaningful life. Through an in-depth, reflective, supportive dialogue, I help you to clarify what you value, disentangling what really matters from old or habitual beliefs; identify and address the patterns that hold you back from living in a way that fully expresses your values; and look at ways in which you can start moving towards that valued life. Do get in touch if you are going through a transition, feel you’re not quite being the person you’d like to be, are struggling with a decision, or simply feel you'd like to understand yourself better and live life more fully.

Struggles can confront us at various points in our lives. Sometimes there are obvious sources to our pain or maybe we just begin to notice things have been 'off' for a while and it's hard to make sense of. We can be left feeling confused, lonely and disconnected from ourselves. It's hard to understand what's going on, maybe things start to feel out of control or tough to manage and consequently our lives feel unfulfilled in some way. Naturally, we want to get a grasp on what's happened and take back some control of our lives so we can move in the direction we want for ourselves.

Life can be really hard sometimes, and it can help to have someone to talk to who will really listen and allow you to express yourself, without any agenda other than to support you. I would like to be that person for you, to offer you time and space where you can explore and express the things you are finding difficult in your life (and if you're unsure of exactly what those things are, that's ok, I want to help you to find out). I hope to help you to experience a fuller and deeper understanding and acceptance of yourself, which will help you to discover your own path forward through life's challenges.

You may be wondering what "back to normal " looks like, you may be feeling anxious or isolated after the last 2 years, you may find life is not quite how you'd like it to be. I am there just for you, to listen as you talk about whatever is troubling you. I am not going to give advice but time and space to talk things through. It may be something specific, or it can be an opportunity to work on increasing insight and self awareness.  It can be short or long term. Counselling can be a great support in times of change, personal crisis and distress. I provide a safe, non judgmental environment for our work. I have 13+ years experience.

Clients of all ages come to me with a range of issues and experiences – family difficulties, loss, anxiety, low mood, trauma … and just as often with more general feelings of unease and isolation that can be hard to pin down with words. Clients often appreciate space to reflect on their identity and their place in the world. One of the greatest privileges in my work is to support families working through past and present hurts to heal relationships, through empathy and authentic communication. I am experienced in working with foster carers and children in care, using an approach informed by Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy (DDP).

Experiences in life can sometimes prevent us from living our life as fully as we would like to or in the way we wish. Anxiety, depression and other issues can leave us feeling confused and stuck, unable to move forward and take charge of our lives. ​ I offer one-one counselling in a private, confidential and safe space. This can help you explore and understand your experiences, your feelings and your thoughts. It can help you consider and deal with the dilemmas and decisions you face and it can help you understand your patterns, to see new perspectives for your future and to regain the confidence to make the changes you want to. ​

Counselling for men who don't want counselling ... Many men see therapy as a waste of time and money, a one-sided converastion, solely focused on feelings, with little opportunity for you to fix things yourself. You want to go it alone.The very notion of discussing your private life with a stranger makes you recoil. You really want to be okay. You really want to just have your life together. But you cant' seem to stop being moody, angry, agressive, jealous and, sometimes even, suicidal. You may be drinking too much, using drugs or gambling too much. Deep down, you're suffering and so are the people around you.

Humanistically recognising the needs of an individual ,we see how trauma can be held at a very deep level. Working from the story of an individuals early negative & positive childhood experiences and using Integrative therapy in a number of ways to help the process of getting to one's core beliefs, helps to create a safe space for them to explore and release old patterns. This happens by building a trust with the client to allow their vulnerability to come through. Then, looking at the blocks or defences, via counselling and body Psychotherapy, a unique holistic approach to wellbeing, allows the journey back to health.

Feeling safety in a complex world is no mean feet. Childhood, historic, or current experiences, interacting/reacting with the complexities brought about by the pandemic, can exhaust any capacity for resilience. maybe you're a parent/carer of children transitioning from the intensity of lockdown to the uncertainty of the easing of restrictions? Is this further complicated by returning to education settings for children with Autism, ADHD, FASD, SPD, trauma and attachment? Maybe you are a foster care or adoptive parent wondering how to rebalance the attachment bond after the intensity of lockdown, recalibrating interfamilial dynamics?

Finding the right therapist can be a daunting process. I believe that it is important for you to feel a positive connection with your therapist if you are to receive the most beneficial experience from Psychotherapy. I believe that the healer is within you, but I also understand that it is difficult for anyone to self heal without support. My purpose is not only to assist you with the healing process, but also to facilitate your change and growth and help you to naturally awaken your own life supporting behaviours.

You might seek help for a specific problem such as obsessional behaviour, social anxiety or psycho-somatic symptoms. Or you may have more general feelings of anxiety or depression associated with dissatisfaction in work, the challenge of forming satisfying relationships or issues with money, food or sex. You may feel unfulfilled, bored or creatively inhibited. All of these difficulties affect the quality of your life. Psychotherapy and counselling provide an effective treatment for just such disorders and concerns and can contribute significantly to your mental health, sense of well-being and to managing your life more effectively.

Welcome to my therapy practice. I like to think of my way of working with individuals or couples as creating a unique space that is facilitating for recovery or growth. I draw on a wide range of techniques and approaches to fulfil this way of working (including the use of CBT tools). Psychotherapy and counselling with me is a confidential and non-judgemental process. I won’t tell you what to do but we will talk about whatever you need to talk about and we will work on ways of developing a useful route through your issues, however difficult. (My practice is neurodiverse informed and kink friendly).
