As an Integrative psychotherapist in training, I draw on a variety of approaches to help you explore and work through many aspects of life, but particular areas of interest/experience include living with chronic illness , the difficulties faced by neurodivergent people, and LGBTQ+ life.
As a therapist, I see you as a unique individual with unique needs. there is no one-size-fits-all way to help someone. I aim to hold a therapeutic space that allows us to build a relationship in which you feel safe enough for us to explore your experience and difficulties, what they mean to you, how they relate to one another, and how they express themselves between us. This can expand your awareness of your relationship with yourself, others, and the environment in which you live. My hope is to help you feel able to choose a way forward that feels more joyful and and authentic.

I have previously helped clients with anxiety, depression, exam stress, self-confidence, relationships and chronic illness .
Sometimes life can seem "too much".  Maybe you are feeling stuck and not sure how to move forward?  If you are in a place of overwhelm, counselling can help you to talk through your feelings, explore who you are and learn to cope with the struggles that life can bring. I offer a calm and supportive space where I will listen without judgement, something which can be difficult to find when confiding in friends or family. I currently work with adults and young people over 16.

Welcome. I am a warm, approachable, and respectful therapist who wants to learn about you. Have you been feeling down, hopeless, or lost? Or perhaps you feel worried, confused, or overwhelmed? You could be concerned for yourself or someone in your family. Maybe something significant has happened recently, or it has slowly dawned on you that things aren't quite right. I’m happy to tell you that we can work together to better understand what’s happening to you. There is an opportunity to feel better than you do now, whether that means recovery or learning to live with how things are at the moment. Change is possible.

Having experience of mental health issues, serious medical conditions, and trauma myself I understand how difficult it is to take those first steps to mental wellbeing and that it can feel like a never-ending uphill struggle. There are all sorts of things that can cause us to be depressed and feeling anxious. I can help you take the first steps to feeling better about yourself and the life you lead. I will listen to you and really hear what you have to say. I won't judge you, the things you want to talk about or how you live your life. I am here for you if you would like my help.

With no waiting list I can offer counselling & hypnotherapy to help you recover from depression, fear and anxiety through motivation & perspective thus finding the joy that you once had in your life. Anxiety, fear & hopelessness are some emotions that can linger post traumatic events, again I can help you overcome these symptoms. Loss of a loved one or diagnoses of a life limiting condition are devastating events & the pain of this sometimes unbearable. Feelings of guilt, anger & grief can become apparent & each individual responds differently. I am here to help you through your concerns of the future.

Are you seeking a safe space with an experienced psychologist? You might be feeling overwhelmed, low, frustrated, guilty, or anxious. Perhaps you feel you've lost part of your identity, impacting on your sense of purpose and self-worth. I know it can be incredibly hard to express what you truly feel and need to others. I offer a supportive and non-judgmental space for you to work through current issues, as well as difficulties from your past. I specialise in supporting people with long-term conditions (e.g. chronic pain, depression, cancer), and also work with a range of wider issues (e.g. PTSD and trauma).

My focus is on collaboration to form an empowering therapeutic relationship centred on your needs. Alongside facilitating personal agency, I aim to situate the difficulties brought to therapy within the broader context they occur as problems seldom exist in a vacuum. I have over 10 years of experience in mental health services with a range of presenting difficulties. I offer a free 15 minute consultation as an opportunity to identify if we could work together. This can then be followed by a more detailed assessment appointment. After this regular therapy sessions can be arranged to work on your identified goals.

I am passionate about Humans' ability to heal when they feel supported and accompanied on their personal life path. We all have greater potential and resources than we think. A lot of the times it is difficult to access this for various (and many) reasons... Fear, trauma, beliefs, illness... Transformation or change is possible. Sometimes we can "shut down" so much emotionally, that we don't even notice we do. Therapy can help with exploring our ways and difficulties to relate, and be in this world as well as what empowers us.
