I can help you, if you feel anxious, empty or sad; if you have relationship issues with parents or partners, never feel really heard, are a 'people pleaser' or say 'yes' even when you are overwhelmed. If this is you, then we can work together to help you feel better in yourself and in your relationships, feel less stressed and more able to cope. Through looking at our past we can often discover where some of these things come from, you can start to understand your feelings, make sense of your responses and manage the emotions that they bring. You can start to live a more positive and fulfilling life with better relationships.

I offer a compassionate and safe space where you can explore new ways to relate to yourself, loved ones and the world in general. We all have a need to be loved and to share our love with another. I believe that through learning to love and be loved we can heal the wounds that keep us apart from our true selves and learn to relate to others in a more healthy and intimate way. Many of us in the modern world feel lost, isolated, despondent and hurt. . I believe that in amongst the pain and suffering there is hope. Each of us can move beyond our wounding and find a more balanced way of being.

I recognise that life is a journey that can sometimes be a struggle. Life in this modern world is often chaotic, stressful and moves at such a fast pace, yet our reptilian brains are still designed to deal with cave man threats. This can lead to our bodies being flooded with fight, flight or freeze responses. In time these can build and lead to conditions such as anxiety, depression and low level trauma if not dealt with correctly. Having the support to help you through is not always easy to find.

I enjoy helping you discover the key to why you are suffering with anxiety, OCD or depression. I can help you feel better and will give you hope, love and acceptance. I understand struggling with anxiety can be overwhelming, particularly if you are experiencing panic attacks. It can literally feel like you are going to die. You are not going to die or going mad. Anxiety is simply your body's way of letting you know things are not quite right. Anxiety creates fear, which triggers the 'flight or fight' response. We can also become locked in a vicious circle of being afraid of the fear.

Everyone can feel sad or anxious at times, but when this makes us feel that we are struggling to cope with our lives, we can feel pervasively anxious or overwhelmed, stressed, bleak and lonely, and notice that we are tearful, or unable to do what we need to do, burnt out or have difficulty in controlling anger. Whether it is depression or anxiety or unresolved trauma that is getting in the way, it can sometimes be hard to see the way forward, and here therapy can really be of benefit.
