Life can be hard at times and can leave you feeling isolated and alone. Many current issues are often buried in childhood experiences affecting our thoughts and patterns of behaviour in the present day. Sometimes we just feel "stuck" without knowing the reason why. Exploration of difficult and sometimes painful emotions helps gain an insight into what is causing the psychological distress. We will work with whatever issues you wish to bring, at your pace without pressure or judgement.

If you are feeling anxious, stressed, depressed, confused or suffering with addiction issues cognitive behavioral therapy can help. I understand how finding the right therapist to work with can be confusing. That’s why I encourage you to have a free telephone consultation first so you can decide for yourself whether we will be a good match. I work with clients while they process and resolve the issues they are facing and find real long lasting solutions to their problems. Somewhere inside you is the person you were meant to be, so let’s release that person, so you can move forwards with clarity and direction.

You have already taken the very first step to reach out and help yourself - that is brave. I know it can feel daunting to reach out for help but by working together I can provide that space in a safe, and confidential environment to explore these issues. Is it because nothing is making sense anymore? Feelings of anxiety now have its strongholds and nothing feels certain either, only this deep sinking feeling of dread! There maybe many reasons for accessing counselling and I am mindful that everyone has a story. I am also aware that there can be stigma attached in seeking emotional support.

Reaching out for therapy can be a huge step. Sometimes a particular experiece leads us to access therapy, and sometimes we want to explore big themes in our lives. Often, we can benefit from exploring both of these areas and the impact of them on our day to day life and relationships.

Life can have many aspects and there can be parts that we feel we would could benefit from support with. Whether there is a specific issue, things feel a little 'stuck', or parts of you aren't feeling as they used to, we can unpick what feels appropriate to at any given moment. Through therapy we can support the growth of self-awareness, explore what may be feeling unsaid and find your own path through whatever is present for in the current moment. It may be relational issues, loss, trauma, self-identity or simply a sense of not feeling exactly where you wish to be. We can take time to examine where your journey leads next.

Many of us find parts of our lives difficult. Sometimes feelings can linger and interfere with our day-to-day functioning; impacting what is meaningful to us. Exploring these difficulties in a supportive space can enable you to understand them better and help you to work towards feeling better. I specifically work with individuals who have difficulty regulating their emotion, interpersonal issues and struggle to stay in the here and now by ruminating on the past or worrying about the future.

Have you ever wished you could say how you really felt, and that someone would take the time to listen to you? Perhaps you have kept your thoughts and feelings to yourself through fear of being put down, judged, or laughed at? Or maybe you put your problems aside because you feel the other person is more important? Counselling is the opportunity to sort your thoughts; gives you time to work out what you really feel, the space to consider your options, and decide what you feel is best for you. People come for different reasons, but all wish the same outcomes; to be heard, be understood, feel better and find ways to enjoy their life.

At times life can be hard to cope with and understanding our thoughts, emotions and actions can feel over whelming and all consuming. Life at times can feel rather heavy and embarking on a therapeutic journey together we can help lighten the load. Working together on your journey to help you understand your past experiences, how these experiences can shape the way we feel and act, how this affects you now. Being able to reflect and start to recognise our own emotions is the building foundation for emotional, mental and physical resilience.

Female Counsellors

Does it matter what gender my therapist is?

In general, this is not an important factor, as there is no relationship between a therapist’s gender and their efficacy. Some clients, however, prefer to see therapists of a particular gender, whether due to their own past experiences with men and women, or ingrained beliefs about how people of different genders think and behave. Exploring the roots of such preferences and considering what one wants to address in therapy can help someone determine whether their therapist’s gender truly matters to them.

Should I see a female therapist?

Many people—not just women—prefer to see a female therapist, either because they believe that a woman will be able to relate to their specific challenges (for example, sexism in the workplace) or because they imagine feeling more comfortable disclosing sensitive information to a woman. Such beliefs may not turn out to be accurate, however, and adhering too rigidly to a gender preference can at times hinder a client from finding the best therapeutic match.

Do therapists get specific training to help with women’s concerns?

Therapists are trained to provide care to clients of any gender. However, some therapists—both men and women—may pursue additional training in feminist therapy, gender-specific issues, or women’s mental health. Female clients may wish to ask prospective therapists whether they have received specific training in the client’s primary area(s) of concern, or whether they have worked extensively with women on issues similar to their own.

How can I inquire about a therapist’s experience in treating women?

It’s OK—even encouraged!—to ask a therapist directly whether and how often they have treated women in the past, or whether they have treated women dealing with the client’s most prominent concern(s). Competent therapists will be happy to share their educational background, preferred treatment modalities, and prior client experience to help an individual find the therapist best suited to their needs.
