If there's something you want to understand better or change, I can help you move from feeling confused, stuck or overwhelmed to a place where things make sense, there’s a way forward, and you feel in charge of your life. Feeling stressed, burnt out, anxious or depressed are some of the most common reasons people seek therapy, but there may be many reasons- some challenges feel hard to pin down or are a quiet, niggling sense that builds up over time. Or perhaps you have experienced a major life change or event and feel you need some support as you find a new way through.

You might seek help for a variety of reasons, such as anxiety, low mood, bereavement, eating and body weight problems, relational issues, feeling stuck or overwhelmed by life change situations (the list is not exhaustive). Sometimes it could be difficult to identify a specific reason for seeking support. It might be a struggle to find a sense of meaning or a way through emotional pain. Whatever the reason you are looking for emotional support, I can offer my skills and experience in a safe a confidential non-judgemental space where you can feel free to express your thoughts, and feelings.

I am part of the LGBT+ community and identify as a cis gay man. As a consequence I have seen how life can throw many diverse LGBTQ-related challenges at us: loss, crisis, change - that cause us to question our sense of self. Yet I believe within these challenging times we have the ability to grow and develop - even flourish - through the untangling of our internal and external worlds: who we are, our authentic selves, others’ around us as well as the world in which we live.

Sometimes life can feel like a real struggle. Are your thoughts and feelings reducing your enjoyment of life and your relationships with those around you? Maybe you are experiencing stress or a ‘stuckness’; feelings of anxiety, uncertainty and overwhelm; perhaps you are living with a recent or past loss or relationship difficulties; or is it that a lack of purpose or direction in life is dragging you down? I am an integrative therapist which means that I use elements of different psychological ideas to inform the most appropriate way of working with you. A background in the creative arts enriches and supports my practice.

Have you decided to change the feelings and behaviours that stop you from living a life you want to live? Have you had enough of living with the crushing effects of anxiety and depression, dragging around the weight of your past? Do you finally feel ready to tackle the intrusive thoughts and negativity that seem to have a life of their own, impacting every decision you try to make? Are you carrying the weight of family dysfunction and trauma and are prepared to commit to a programme that will help you change how you think, feel and react?

I am here to listen. The body and mind work together, and I work holistically to support you through whatever has brought you to seek help. This could be traumas such as bereavement, abuse or relationship difficulties - sometimes there's no specific cause, but a generalised feeling of anxiety or sadness that makes it hard to cope with day to day stresses. Talking to somebody empathic and non-judgemental can help, and I offer a warm, safe and confidential space for us to explore your thoughts, feelings and emotions so that you can make sense of them, and find a much better sense of mental wellbeing.

I have a particular interest in trauma and how it impacts our nervous system: PTSD and C-PTSD, dissociation, hearing voices, addictive behaviours and coping mechanisms and their link to childhood trauma; 'ACE's' (Adverse Childhood Experiences), and how these affect us as adults. Trauma comes in many forms; obvious, overt ones such as physical or sexual abuse, car accidents, war, disasters etc, and also less obvious or covert forms like emotional abuse or neglect, bullying, or just 'not getting what we need' on an emotional level. I'm a member of ISST-D, a trainee member of UKCP and BCPC, and have specialist trauma training.

You might seek help for a specific problem such as obsessional behaviour, social anxiety or psycho-somatic symptoms. Or you may have more general feelings of anxiety or depression associated with dissatisfaction in work, the challenge of forming satisfying relationships or issues with money, food or sex. You may feel unfulfilled, bored or creatively inhibited. All of these difficulties affect the quality of your life. Psychotherapy and counselling provide an effective treatment for just such disorders and concerns and can contribute significantly to your mental health, sense of well-being and to managing your life more effectively.

Feeling safety in a complex world is no mean feet. Childhood, historic, or current experiences, interacting/reacting with the complexities brought about by the pandemic, can exhaust any capacity for resilience. maybe you're a parent/carer of children transitioning from the intensity of lockdown to the uncertainty of the easing of restrictions? Is this further complicated by returning to education settings for children with Autism, ADHD, FASD, SPD, trauma and attachment? Maybe you are a foster care or adoptive parent wondering how to rebalance the attachment bond after the intensity of lockdown, recalibrating interfamilial dynamics?

My life experiences and learning journey have influenced and shaped my passion for counselling. I feel privileged having the opportunity to walk alongside those who seek support. Indeed we are all different and each of our life stories are unique. Working with the pluralistic approach offers flexibility across every session but our work together will always be defined by you! My role is not to 'fix' you, my role is to listen to you, to learn about you and to understand you. I firmly believe the answers we may seek are held within us and the counselling journey provides a pathway leading to transformation and positive change.

Struggles can confront us at various points in our lives. Sometimes there are obvious sources to our pain or maybe we just begin to notice things have been 'off' for a while and it's hard to make sense of. We can be left feeling confused, lonely and disconnected from ourselves. It's hard to understand what's going on, maybe things start to feel out of control or tough to manage and consequently our lives feel unfulfilled in some way. Naturally, we want to get a grasp of what's happened and take back some control of our lives so we can move in the direction we want for ourselves.

Looking for a therapist can be an overwhelming experience; however, it is already a good step in your journey. You may be needing to be listened to or seeking support for a particular challenge. Emotional pain and mental distress need a space to be explored and processed and therapy can offer a safe environment for this.Counseling and psychotherapy can provide an opportunity to be in a safe space where you can be listened to by someone who is unbiased and non-judgmental. By sharing your story and your experiences, and building trust and openness in the relationship with your therapist, we can attempt to gain deeper understanding.
