Counselling can provide you with much needed clarity when life seems full up, with no room left to think. As a qualified Counsellor and Psychotherapist I provide a non-judgemental, safe and confidential space to explore issues that you are facing, to look more closely at the impact that these are having in your life and to begin to gain new perspectives. As an integrative practitioner I am able to work flexibly with you, with my work being informed by different approaches including Gestalt, Person-centred, Psychodynamic and CBT. This means that I am able to work in a way that will best suit your individual needs.

Are you feeling low, stuck or overwhelmed? Perhaps you have managed okay until now in your life, or maybe you have been struggling alone with difficult feelings for a long time. Working with a therapist can support you to understand yourself better and experiment with different ways of relating to yourself and your world. I’ve been in practice since 2017 and fully qualified as a UKCP accredited psychotherapist in July 2022. My approach is Gestalt, which means as well as talking about your past and current life, I’ll encourage you to stay with your experience in the moment as you share with me.

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.

Let me tell you a bit about me... Finding a therapist that can actually relate to you is hard, can feel exhausting at times. I know because it took me a while to find an effective therapist that understands what it's like to struggle. I hope I can be that person for you. I have an intuitive, friendly approach and will work hard to empower you to make the changes you have been looking for. I work from a person centred stance as I believe the key to lasting therapy is forming strong trusting relationships, helping you to understand yourself better.

Sometimes life is hard - and we can easily get trapped in trying to feel in control while at the same time losing contact with what's important. Therapy can provide an opportunity to carefully think things through when your attempts to get by are tiring you out and no longer working. Therapy is about teamwork: we both listen out for patterns or themes; try to understand where problems might have come from; and get a sense of your personal and social sources of stress and strength. We can also consider what meaningful change might look like, and I can support you to plan and work towards this in a safe and manageable way.

I work in private practice and in Secondary schools with many mental health issues such as anxiety, self-harm, low mood, gender dysphoria, self-esteem and confidence. In this difficult world, especially after lockdown, there are so many teenagers struggling emotionally and it is affecting confidence, friendships, family life and school. They want to understand how to understand and manage these emotions in order to be able to process them and move forward. I also work with SEND young people, struggling to understand themselves and why they may struggle emotionally.

My Doctoral training and years of counselling have taught me that there's always more to a problem than its headline, and that the foundations of meaningful change are in careful, critical understanding. I work with my clients to formulate their problems in all their complexity, and to develop focussed strategies for intervention. I often work with people struggling with low mood, anxiety, esteem issues, obsessive thoughts, relationship issues, traumatic experiences and unhelpful coping. I work responsively, realistically and pragmatically, according to my clients' priorities.

Welcome. During the 23 years I've been in therapy practice I've come 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).

We can all feel overwhelmed, stuck or struggle to make changes to relieve our distress or difficulties. As your therapist I will work alongside you to explore your story, providing opportunities to see yourself separate from your difficulty. By gaining a better understanding of the self and our habitual patterns of thinking and behaviour you can bring an alternative story out of the shadows, which could empower you to make changes, improve your relationships and benefit from improved mental and physical wellbeing. I am registered with the BACP and BABCP.
