I have worked in the voluntary sector for several years supporting clients who are struggling with their emotions. I love what I do, and I am always delighted to see people find better mental health. My way of working is to listen very carefully to what you bring, and to understand where your distress lies, we will then explore how you can address your concerns, working together to provide an improved level of well-being for you.

Counselling is a safe space where you can talk about problems and process difficult emotions without shame or judgement. We often feel that we should be able to deal with our problems without others help. But it is often through sharing and opening up to others, that we can find the way to heal ourselves. Trauma, mental or emotional problems, disconnect us from ourselves and others. Sharing our pain and our story (in a relationship where it is held safely) can allow us to value, respect and have compassion for all parts of ourselves. This re-integration unblocks our creative/healing potential and our sense of purpose and meaning.

Psychotherapy can meet our innate need to be heard and deeply understood. Together we can explore your sense of being in the world and process difficult emotions, recurring difficulties or questions. Working with safety and sensitivity we can also process early life experience, past trauma and complex relational dynamics. My holistic approach aims to work with the whole of a person - I work relationally and openly with you to build awareness of psyche, body, memory, energy. As you deepen your understanding of self, you may start to let go of old patterns, restore a sense of balance and begin to build foundations for growth.

I consider collaboration, compassion, curiosity and “unconditional positive regard,” at the heart of my role as a therapist. I strive to provide a safe, non-judgmental environment which cultivates trust, integrity and connection. I’m truly passionate about mental health and the holistic wellbeing of people. It’s a privilege to hold space and work alongside people within the therapy process. I hope through offering a meaning making framework, which honours an individual’s difficulties, their lived experience and acknowledges the inter-relationship between mind-body. A pathway towards healing, recovery and growth can be nurtured.

Sometimes difficulties can have a major impact on our well-being, relationships or work. Maybe friends and family can offer some support but we may also choose to see a qualified and experienced practitioner, who can provide a safe space in which to work with whatever is going on for us. I have a wide range of experience, including working in the NHS, at university as Associate Lecturer (14 years) and in a GP practice as a Lead Therapist and Supervisor, delivering Relational Integrative Therapy. I draw on Psychodynamic and Person-Centred approaches, relational CBT and CFT (Compassion-Focussed Therapy).

Your counselling journey will be a unique reflection of you and your needs. Counselling lends itself both to short-term work, for example, to help you identify current challenges and action changes and longer term work, if you wish perhaps to gain a better understanding of established behaviour patterns or how your childhood, relationships or past development can continue to impact you. Non judgemental support, connection and the ability to be truly heard can increasingly be missing in our lives and counselling can provide this. You may already know what brings you to counselling or you may discover this on your journey.

Anxiety, stress, and painful life events can make even the simplest things feel impossible. I offer a gentle, supportive approach to help you navigate your internal landscape. I use mindfulness as a tool to help you explore your emotions, sensations, and thoughts without judgment, helping you to understand their deeper messages and supporting you to find ways to manage life’s difficulties effectively. I don't just focus on healing negatives, it’s important to celebrate the positives too, as I believe that healing is about rediscovering all aspects of yourself. We can work together short or long term, face to face and online.

It’s when you sense, or realise, that things can’t remain the same and yet you feel frozen, unable to act, and you don’t know what to do. A personal crisis might leave you feeling powerless and anxious. Then you find that the ways in which you generally deal with problems aren’t working: the people you’d usually turn to for support aren’t enough, they might be too involved with the issues you’re facing. You might also feel unwell. It’s not uncommon to feel anxious, depressed or emotionally fragile. This is when counselling can help. I offer Face to Face, Walk and Talk, Online and Telephone Counselling.

Update: As of July 2024, I am OPEN to new enquiries. With over 20 years in practice, my main objective is for you to know that you are welcome exactly as you are. Whatever is on your mind can be explored in a non-critical and open way. I want you to know that you are safe in your counselling sessions. You can rest assured that it is okay to ‘blurt it all out’, because we will be able to make sense of things together. You can also take your time to think and be quiet as you gather your thoughts. There is no pressure to go into topics you don’t want to speak about. In short, you can come exactly as you are.
