The thought of therapy can often be a daunting prospect to consider and choosing the right counsellor is the important decision to make on this journey. I value individual difference, integrity, honesty and strongly believe that we can be empowered to find our own answers. I have an empathic and warm approach which enables you to explore any difficulties in a non-judgmental and accepting environment. Talking can help us to learn more about ourself or help us to make sense of our thoughts and feelings, enabling us to see things from a different perspective and feel better able to move onwards more positively.

Counselling/ Psychotherapy: Effective counselling reduces confusion, allowing you to make effective decisions leading to positive changes in your attitude, behaviours & overall well-being. The ultimate aim of counselling is to enable you to make your own choices, reach your own decisions & go forward with a greater sense of clarity & self-management. Hypnotherapy & mindfulness can be introduced as a type of complementary therapy in which hypnosis is used to create a state of focused attention and increased suggestibility during which positive suggestions are made to rid you of emotional blockage. Mindfulness keeps us focused

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.

There is so much focus these days on "What's wrong with you" using terms such as 'depression', 'anxiety', 'disorder', rather than talking about "What happened to you?" Your mental health is much more than just a label or a diagnosis and therapy offers so much more than just talking. It can give you new understanding, new insights, a different perspective, clarity about a problem and the way forward. It can teach you skills to live your life better, teach you more healthy coping strategies or simply give you the space and time for self reflection and a place to find peace of mind.

Life is tough. Sometimes we get to a point where we feel stuck, unable to see a way through. There are infinite reasons what may bring you to therapy; relationship breakdown, bereavement, a sense of loss of control, addiction, bullying, redundancy, the list goes on. We cannot change the past. But we can heal from the pain, towards a life worth living of your choice. Therapy is a collaborative process. Everybody is an individual and I will work with you as the expert on your own life; offering support, challenge, empathy and compassion along with the space to explore your own experience, which is so rarely possible in our daily lives

Hey There, Trauma can present as symptoms connected to nervous system disregulation, such as anxiety, depression, low mood, negative thinking, destructive behaviour, difficulty in experiencing emotion, lack of drive and enthusiasm, isolation, a lack of trust in others and a fear of connection or poor relationships, dissociative tendencies and hyper sensitivities. I work with cutting edge methods including Brainspotting and the SSP (safe sound protocol) (polyvagal theory) that are grounded in the most recent developments in neuro science and how we understand the impact of our early environment on our here and now adult experiences.

Be a lamp, or a lifeboat, or a ladder. Help someone's soul heal'. (Rumi). As a therapist, for me this sums up counselling in one short sentence, which is helping and facilitating the healing process. I am a fully qualified person-centred, and integrative therapist. I offer safe, non-judgemental, confidential therapy for you to explore your concerns and issues. Having a non-judgemental and supportive manner is essential in the work I do with people. I feel this allows people to be more comfortable within the process of therapy and allows them to safely explore the issues they are bringing to therapy.

Borderline Personality (BPD) Counsellors

What is the most successful approach to treating borderline personality disorder?

Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) is considered the gold standard of treatment for borderline personality disorder. An evidence-based treatment, it addresses the extreme emotional reactivity, the relationship difficulties, and the acts of self-harm that create so much distress for BPD patients. DBT is a comprehensive program that includes both regular individual psychotherapy sessions and weekly group sessions of skills training.

What happens in treatment of borderline personality disorder?

Treatment typically consists of weekly individual therapy sessions that last an hour and group skill-focused instructional sessions that may last up to two hours. Patients are typically given homework “assignments” in which they are asked to practice in their daily life the skills they acquire in therapy. Patients also keep a diary tracking their emotions and impulses as a way to know which situations are most problematic and to help them gain control over their own behavior. Difficult situations and feelings are typically reviewed in therapy sessions and more constructive solutions found.

What kinds of problems does BPD treatment help with?

DBT was initially developed to dampen the self-destructive impulses of chronically suicidal patients. It is now the treatment of choice for borderline personality disorder, a serious condition marked by extreme emotional reactivity, relationship instability, and self-injurious behaviors. Treatment of BPD helps patients tolerate the flux of emotions without acting on them, often with a specific focus on tolerating negative emotions. DBT addresses the core problems of BPD—fear of abandonment, low self-esteem, and impulsivity.

What is the goal of treatment in borderline personality disorder?

The goal of treatment for borderline personality disorder (BPD) is to relieve the extreme emotional distress that patients experience—to curb their emotional reactivity, to minimize their inclination to self-harm, and to reduce their impulsivity. Toward these ends, patients are not only taught an array of new coping skills and techniques for emotional regulation, they are given opportunities to practice them. Another major goal of treatment is interpersonal effectiveness; patients learn and problem-solve ways to effectively communicate in relationships, especially how to ask for what they need as a way to minimize hurt feelings.
