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 understand struggling with anxiety can be overwhelming, particularly if you are experiencing panic attacks. Anxiety is simply your body's way of letting you know things are not quite right. I am also looking for counsellors requiring supervision, whilst I complete Relational Supervision training. This puts the relationship at the heart of our work. Helping you understand how the relationships are affecting you, as well as technicalities and ethics. I have an interest in neurodiversity and am passionate about being in nature.

I'll resume also offering face to face therapy when possible. Whether we meet in person or remoteIy, I offer a safe, non-judgmental space to share your load, rather than carrying it alone.

As a clinical psychologist, I consider myself to be something of an 'emotional detective!' I work with individuals and families at their own pace to explore and develop a shared understanding of how their experiences (past and present), perspectives, and environmental factors may be contributing to a particular difficulty such as anxiety or depression, before identifying and sharing new solutions to help overcome the problem. Sometimes, the process of talking openly can in itself be transformative as new meanings and stories emerge; other times specific skills and strategies might be used to create positive change and difference.
