There can come a time in anybody’s life when they feel that some support is required. Sometimes it feels difficult to know who to turn to. Do you feel challenged by life? Are you feeling bewildered about where your current path is taking you? Are you suffering following the loss of a relationship, be it through bereavement or relationship breakdown. Maybe you are struggling at work, home or university? Is life too confusing? Do you want to realise the power of your potential? I am here to offer support while you are working through life’s challenges - support which is confidential, open-minded, non-judgemental and consistent.

Starting counselling can be a bit scary, but living with unresolved problems is probably much worse. I believe that conditions such as anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, and addictive behaviour signal that something is preventing us from thriving. Recognising something in your life that you want to change is the most crucial step. I offer sessions online and also face-to-face in both Bristol & London.

Does you best simply never feel enough? Do you worry endlessly about what others think of you? Perhaps you spend days and weeks dwelling on mistakes you've made and your fear you'll always end up a failure? Depression and anxiety will do that to you but the important thing to remember is that these thoughts (however powerful) are just that - thoughts. Thoughts aren't facts and there's no reason you have to fall victim to them anymore.

Do you worry that you're a failure or not good enough? Do you feel low or anxious? We all experience thoughts and feelings like these at some point, but perhaps you've noticed a greater impact on your relationships and work and this stops you from living the life you want. I understand that it can be overwhelming to speak to a professional about how you’re feeling. I'm a chartered psychologist providing therapy for a range of difficulties including anxiety, low mood, stress, burnout, loss/life transitions and 'imposter syndrome'. My approach is warm, non-judgemental and compassionate.

People are drawn to counselling/psychotherapy for various reasons. Perhaps you are facing difficulties in your relationships or grappling with intense emotions. It could be that you're finding it hard to cope with a recent event in your life, or you're feeling distressed without a clear understanding of why. Therapy can help you to make sense of these experiences, gaining a deeper understanding of yourself and finding effective ways to tackle the challenges you encounter. Working alongside a skilled therapist can support you to find a way forward.

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.

I am currently offering in person, online video and telephone counselling by appointment. If you are currently looking for a counsellor it may well be that you have reached a point of change. You can no longer put up with the current situation you feel you are in. You may be suffering anxious feelings or low mood, or be struggling with anger and frustration, or any number of other concerns. These are feelings that we all experience from time to time, but they can be limiting and have an effect on our general happiness and satisfaction with life.

Feeling stuck is more common than you might think. Your thoughts are piling up, and it feels like the harder you try to sort them out, the more tangled they become. It's natural to cling on to old stuff because it feels safe or familiar, or perhaps you can't quite pinpoint what's up. These moments often show up disguised as stress, a sense of being overwhelmed, or feeling low. There might be signs physically and mentally, telling you it's time for something different. You might also be searching for a new playlist for your mind, wondering if it's even possible as everything seems to be stuck on loop.
