If you are feeling stressed, low, or unsure about your direction in life, then perhaps I can help. My approach is rooted in mindfulness, but as a Clinical Psychologist I am trained in a range of therapies, and so can weave them together to produce the right therapy for you. Using mindfulness-based therapy you can learn to step back from your thoughts, stop struggling with your feelings, and live the life you want. I offer a free 30-minute initial consultation, so you can make sure that I am the right person to work with.

What a world we live in, hey? So much pain. So much drama, and heartache. Yet, also so much beauty, love, and understanding. There's nothing to do except be here now and show up fully, living as best as we can. This is where therapy begins. It may be hard work to change your habits, or to stop your thoughts spiralling. However you may find stillness, presence and recovery. No matter what adversity you've been through, I believe that you can grow from it and gain resilience.

Do you have that feeling that life is becoming too much? Or maybe you feel your mood is low and you dont know why. Do you feel anxious but dont know how to control the symptoms? or maybe you know exactly how you feel and are suffering in silence because you dont know where to turn or who to talk to about it.

You are not broken. You may be experiencing emotional injury, and/or psychological distress, but this does not communicate brokenness. On the contrary, this communicates an emotional BUILD. You might be struggling with symptoms of anxiety, depression, women's issues, trauma, grief, loss, low self-esteem, low self-worth, etc. It may even be likely that you have learned how to live in a way that attempts to guard you from any additional emotional injuries. Essentially, your life experiential may have taught you how to build a wall of emotional defense, but that is not your truest self

I mostly work with clients who have been adversely affected by abuse, trauma, and relationship difficulties. I have extended this to work with couples and relationships. I work by tuning into each client’s individual circumstances and listen to how their life experiences have impacted them. I can offer some solutions, such as coping mechanisms for managing trauma responses such as anxiety and depression. I also offer help in developing practical skills in managing narcissistic behaviour, such as carefully considered boundary setting, recognising that boundaries often come with negative consequences.

Counselling offers a container where movement and change can occur, where it's possible to find freedom and clarification around the things that weigh us down. I will work with you to identify the strategies and patterns that may restrict you living a fuller life, discover how they were formed, for what reasons and will support you to find ways to evolve and progress where change is possible.
