I'm a qualified integrative counsellor and Internal Family Systems therapist. I've had experience in working with a range of issues including anxiety, grief, stress, OCD and low self esteem. Counselling can support you through difficult periods in your life and help in gaining a deeper understanding of yourself. Do you feel stuck? Together, we can work towards your goals. I primarily use Internal Family Systems therapy which you might recognise as parts work, does a part of you feel a certain way but another part feel something else entirely? Do you want to discover a new way of relating to yourself? IFS may be for you.

April 2024 I am now taking on new clients All of us have times in our lives when we feel the need for some extra support. Perhaps we are lacking confidence and self-esteem, going through relationship difficulties, feeling depressed, anxious, experiencing stressful life changes such as bereavement, divorce, or redundancy. Perhaps now is the right time to address long-standing issues – or maybe we find ourselves at a crossroads and feel unsure of ourselves and of which way to turn.

I have experience of working with a wide-range of differing psycho-emotive (grief, anger, sadness, hopelessness) and behavioural problems (aggression, addictions, relationship issues), sexual difficulties and trauma.
I am a Consultant Clinical Psychologist with over 30 years of experience working with adults in both NHS and private practice settings. Crises are often important moments in our lives that signify the need to make changes. These times can indicate that old ways of coping or patterns in relationships and behaviour are now no longer working. I offer a non-judgemental reflective space in which to support individuals to increase understanding and insight into their difficulties and to identify the changes they wish to make. I have been trained in a number of therapeutic modalities which I integrate and tailor to each individual.

Perhaps you feel lost, ungrounded, unable to understand your emotional way of being and always seem to be at conflict with yourself and others in your life. Perhaps you suffer from anxiety, stress, OCD, addictions, lack of self-worth. Perhaps you are grieving a loss of a loved one, relationship break-up or a job. In these times of stress and anxiety, one needs to find one’s inner core strength to be able to be fully grounded and able to fully move into life with clarity and focus. With my counselling skills and our teamwork, you can become the person you were born to be.

In life, we all experience loss and major changes; we face difficult choices and overwhelming feelings. As a counsellor I know support and self-understanding are key in moving forward positively, but as a human I know this is easier said than done. Finding the right therapist and the consequent process is deeply personal and should be rooted in trust, empathy and an accepting environment. With experience in trauma, addiction and mental health, my focus is you, and the respect and understanding of your unique story and context. Whatever is going on, together we can explore your past, make sense of the present and plan for the future.

I work with adults with a range of issues, including anxiety, depression, bereavement and loss, difficulties around identity, relationships, sexuality, and a sense of meaning and place in the world.
There are many reasons why people seek time and space to talk and reflect. You might want to talk about thoughts and feelings that are difficult to discuss with others, or consider what has happened to bring you to this point in your life. This can be a space for exploration and discovery, a protected hour in which you will be listened to. My focus is on listening openly, without judgment, to whatever you bring. I will listen to your experiences and your point of view and together we can look at different perspectives which can help you to live more freely.

We all experience difficulties at one time or another. It could be that our relationships aren’t all we'd like them to be. Or perhaps we feel anxious, depressed, lonely, or we’re grieving a loss. Perhaps we behave in ways that we'd rather not, or that we don't understand. Or maybe life has lost its meaning, we've lost our sense of direction, feel stuck, or just don't know who we are any more. Counselling offers a safe, confidential space in which to explore such issues in relationship with someone who is skilled, non-judgemental, and really there for you. A space in which to come to terms with things, and allow them to change.

We'll explore what's troubling you and who you are in relation to it- whether it's relationship difficulties, abuse, depression, anxiety, disordered eating, addiction, grief, loss or stress.
We can all struggle at points in our lives. Sometimes the source might feel obvious to us or maybe we might have begun to notice things have been 'off' for a while and it's hard to make sense of. We can be left feeling confused, lonely, disconnected from ourselves and unfulfilled in our lives. It's hard to understand what's going on, maybe things start to feel out of control or tough to manage alone. Naturally, we want to move forward to a place we can be ourselves in the world.

I have experience with many mental health illnesses and trauma-related issues, including: alcohol and drug abuse, domestic abuse, sexual abuse and violence, diagnoses, disordered eating, bereavement, depression, anxiety, self-harming, suicidality, and childhood trauma.
Sometimes life can begin to feel challenging and painful, impacting your inner and outer world. This could be instigated by past traumas, current distressing circumstances or a long-standing mental health condition. Maybe you cannot identify what feels out of place but know that you would like support to explore these emotions and work towards a place of healing. The prospect of entering into therapy can feel like an overwhelming decision, especially in choosing what will best suit your needs. I believe the therapeutic relationship is of the utmost importance, enabling trust and respect, ultimately resulting in lasting change.

Sandplay is a gentle and surprisingly powerful invitation to self-discovery, as well as a safe and contained way to work through difficult past experiences, including grief and trauma.
Are you a parent or carer looking for support for the child in your care? Maybe you’ve been surprised by your own strong and complex emotions that seem to have been stirred up by parenting? One of the greatest privileges in my work is to support families working through past and present hurts to nurture understanding and deepen relationships. I work collaboratively with parents and carers to figure out what approach is best suited to your family’s needs right now. I also specialise in Jungian-informed sandplay therapy, which is suitable for individual clients of all ages and backgrounds.
