As a qualified counsellor I work with clients who are looking to reduce and understand their anxious thoughts, clients who are struggling with their confidence and self esteem, which can make decision making and involving yourself in everyday events a real challenge.
Online counselling offers you a comfy, familiar space to explore your thoughts and feelings. I completely understand how difficult it can be to begin the process of counselling but be assured it will be an opportunity for positive change.. Therapeutic relationships can take time, I am committed to providing the space for it to evolve organically. I have over 15 years working in education and acknowledge the huge pressures faced by educators alongside the pressure to achieve young people navigate daily. Alongside counselling I also have qualifications in relaxation and mindfulness allowing an opportunity to feel deep relaxation.

You might be going through tough times; struggling with past trauma, feeling anxious, moody, rejected and depressed; or having difficulty maintaining romantic or family relationships and friendships. Maybe you're not sure what is real or unreal anymore. Perhaps, you are not sure what you believe, or you feel you are struggling with your faith in God. I want to help you. We'll work together using not only evidenced based practices, but also biblical principles to help you sort things out. Let's blend psychological tools with life coaching, and the power of faith to help you bounce back, embrace who you are, and walk in your purpose.

I specialize in anxiety, depression, abuse, anger management, low self-esteem, family issues, self-confidence, stress, sadness, and more.
Many of us face a variety of ups and downs throughout our lifespan. While family or friends can often help us, this may not always be possible, or additional support may be needed. A qualified counsellor can help to explore or change something in our lives which may be holding us back. We will explore your thoughts and feelings together, within a safe and confidential space with sessions adapted depending on individual needs. Through training and attending sessions myself I understand the difference it can make and am passionate about the process. I look forward to meeting you should you decide to take the leap and get in touch.

"Both our anxiety and our fear need to be understood and respected, perhaps even befriended. We need to pull up a chair and sit with them, understand why they're showing up, and ask ourselves what there is to learn." (Brené Brown) The above quote is a helpful way to see how the therapeutic relationship works; together we will explore what you are feelings and experiencing, and together we will sit with them and explore them, seeking to understand them. Whatever you are currently going through, the starting point is that you find a space where you can speak freely about, and from that place you can begin to "speak yourself free".

I'm a highly experienced Consultant Clinical Psychologist and sleep specialist providing evidence-based psychological interventions (including CBT) for a range of difficulties including insomnia, adult ADHD, anxiety, work-related stress and burnout, trauma, depression, OCD, health anxiety, phobia, self-esteem issues and relationship difficulties.
Psychological support is about investing in you. Life can be chaotic, intense, confusing, and we can be left feeling disconnected from ourselves, our lives, and the people around us. Sometimes we just need some space to stop and think. Psychological support is also about developing a deeper understanding of yourself - who you are, what you need, what matters to you. For others, it's about building on existing skills - how to get more out of relationships, improving communication, being more assertive, boosting your sleep and performance, learning to be the best version of yourself.
