As a BACP registered counsellor with over 15 years experience, I support people through depression, anxiety , trauma, addiction, abuse, loss amongst many other issues. Having a confidential space to talk, a space just for you, can start you on the path to making positive changes. Each person's journey differs so I aim to explore it with you, adapting my skills to fit your needs. I believe each of us have the ability to enhance our lives, sometimes we just need a little help along the way. Taking that first step to meet a counsellor requires courage; I understand this and aim to make it as easy as possible.

Many of the people who come to me for help struggle with personal worries and concerns that stop them from living happy & fulfilled lives. Anxiety , depression and stress are common problems and can massively affect self confidence and self esteem, which in turn affects relationships, work and happiness. Life sometimes gives us upsetting and challenging situations ; exploring and learning new coping techniques and strategies can be extremely helpful and have a significantly positive impact personally as well as benefiting all relationships

It may be a one off counselling session you’re looking for, which can be beneficial when faced with a specific difficulty, and would like to speak to someone neutral about it. Or maybe you are seeking longer term structured sessions to address historical, situational, or recurring difficulties. Amongst other struggles, some of the difficulties I have helped clients with include anxiety , depression, bereavement, loss of status or security, breakdown in relationships, living with illness, loss of confidence and low self-esteem.

The impact of this first contact can be very powerful in building your confidence and reducing any anxiety before our first session.
Maybe you are bereaved and feeling hopeless, but can't discuss this with family? Maybe you are feeling anxious and isolated, working from home and you are fearful of discussing job security with your boss? Maybe you don’t even know why you are feeling so sad or overwhelmed but you do know it is beginning to impact your daily life. Counselling is a talk therapy and it is extremely useful for exploring what is going on beneath the surface we present to the world, that version of ourselves that tries so hard to keep all of the plates spinning at all costs. I want to help you with whatever you are feeling, you are not alone with this.

Life can be overwhelming at times and it’s hard to know what to do for the best. The Covid era has been a strange time that’s tested relationships, problematised goals, brought great suffering, loss and anxiety , and made even straightforward decisions and plans feel impossible. Even aside from recent events, it’s so rare in our day-to-day lives to have chance to pause, reflect, and explore what we want and what the blocks might be to getting it. I'd like to work with you if you've ever felt stuck, lost, confused, lonely, sad, uncertain or guilty about anything, past or present - we can explore and untangle those feelings together.

I specialise in trauma and anxiety , and offer EMDR therapy specifically for trauma/PTSD.
I became a therapist because I like people - I like to understand their stories and how that has brought them to where they are. When you are feeling stuck because of anxiety or depression it is usually pretty difficult to believe anyone would want to listen. Well I do. I want to help you discover and explore the events, thoughts, feelings, and patterns of behaviour that have made you feel trapped so that you can make changes. Imagine being able to see your friends, attend events, even just sleep, without anxious or self critical thoughts wearing you down. That is what therapy with me can offer.

I work with clients who have suffered; loss, trauma, depression, anxiety , negative thoughts, suicidal thoughts, separation, divorce, and relationship issues.
We all have times when we have to face challenges and juggle life; this can be a very stressful time. When we are feeling, sad, alone, stressed, anxious, depressed or having relationship worries these can seem overwhelming. You may feel unable to talk to friends or family for fear of being judged. It's at times like these that we may need a helping hand, a safe place to talk, someone to talk to without feeling judged and someone who will listen to you.

Do you feel out of touch with life and yourself? Do you feel a heaviness that you think will never lift? Do you feel that a ‘normal’, happy life is out of reach? It can feel like a life without anxiety , hopelessness and fear is impossible and that the experiences and relationships you yearn to fully enjoy and be present for are unattainable.

Anxiety , depression, bereavement, relationships, work goals, issues and ways forward - these are just some of the stressors I have helped clients to tackle.
I am a qualified psychotherapist, life coach, trainer and supervisor, with over 20 years experience in private practice. I work with adults who may be encountering life's stressors to a greater-than-usual degree or may be struggling to find their way forward in a diverse range of circumstances. These may be from personal or professional sources but usually involve our own, perhaps not very helpful, habitual ways of dealing with such difficulties - we all can revert to old habits in times of trouble. I am available to do both short- and long-term work according to need.

Do you ever experience feelings of hopelessness and self critical, limiting beliefs and thoughts? Do you experience a lack of energy and reduced motivation? Do you feel held back by worries and panic or feel crippled by spiraling thoughts about what might happen in the future? Maybe you have a specific phobia or fear, restrictive and controlling patterns of eating, obsessive behaviours or urges you feel compelled to complete? Maybe you have a diagnosed neurodevelopmental condition such as Autism, ADHD, learning needs etc and struggling with the impact of this? These are just a few examples of things I can help with.

Anxiety Counsellors

What are the most common treatments for anxiety?

Talk therapy, particularly cognitive behavioural therapy, is the most common treatment for anxiety. Studies have shown it is equally effective as medication. Other popular forms of therapy are popular, depending on a patient’s experience. Exposure therapy, for instance, can be useful for people dealing with fears and phobias, or who have experienced traumatic events. Dialectical Behavioural Therapy may be useful for patients who need help with emotion regulation. Anxiolytic medications, like benzodiazepines, can also help with calming a person enough to focus on the skills they’ve learned, and physical exercise has been shown to help symptoms of anxiety across the board.

How long does therapy for anxiety take to work?

The amount of time needed to alleviate symptoms depends on the severity of a person’s condition. Some therapies may take 5-20 weekly sessions to show results. Anti-depressant medications typically take two to four weeks before a benefit is felt. Anti-anxiety medications are felt typically within 20-30 minutes. Medications are best used to offer a patient a better headspace in which to work on techniques learned in therapy. Exercise, improved sleep habits, and meditation are effective, but takes weeks or months to show results.

When should I seek treatment for anxiety?

Everyone feels anxious at times, but when anxiety causes disruption to your daily life, it may be time to seek help. Such disruption can be mental, physical, or both: having fear dominate your thoughts, avoiding situations or objects that bring on feelings of anxiety, or experiencing shortness of breath, sweating, dizziness, or panic attacks. When these symptoms are recurrent and distressing, it may be time to talk to someone.

How effective is treatment for anxiety?

Treatment for anxiety has been shown to be moderately to highly effective, according to a large body of psychology studies and analyses. For some people, treatment using CBT or exposure therapy alone is effective. Others respond best to a combination of medication and therapy.
