For some of us, it can take years to reach out for help and I understand that. When a client contacts me, I know its a big step. Regardless of your past, your family and your story, I believe that you have the ability to heal and thrive in your life. I am trained and experienced to sit with you to help you find YOUR answers. Together we go on a journey of discovery to see how you have got to where you are today but most importantly how you can find your power and strength to overcome your challenges. You deserve to be healthy, happy and at peace. You do not need to be in serious crisis to go for therapy.

The issues that counsellors face are often complex and deeply personal. My experience of over 10 years in private practice and a third sector organisation has shown me the importance of each person deciding on their own needs and finding their own way through the issues they bring.

We all know life can get tough at times and we can struggle to see our way through it. Sometimes it helps to talk those experiences or feelings through with someone who can really listen and brings no agenda with them. There are so many reasons to come to therapy difficult times in life, things feeling not quite right, anxiety or depression or things from our past effecting us in the here and now (attachment or trauma). Therapy is a safe, neutral place you can use to explore what is happening for you, and it can support you in deciding how you want to manage it.

Have you been struggling with anxiety or depression for some time now? Are the things that you use to manage your thoughts and feelings not working as well as they used to? Are you worried that you may be losing control of your life and that others around you are suffering because of it? Are you finding it hard to sleep because you cannot switch off your mind? Do you want to be be able to handle those difficult thoughts and feelings and be able to live again rather than just existing? If that sounds familiar, psychological therapy can help.

Welcome to you and thank you for reaching out. It is a brave step to seek support. I will work with you to create a safe space where you feel comfortable and supported. It takes courage to work on your lived experiences and first we'll create safety in the therapeutic relationship so you can explore what is troubling you. Maybe you do not have words for your experiences and would feel safer exploring with art materials before you are able to say what is on your mind. Art therapy is a container for previously unmanageable emotions and painful thoughts or experiences which are often stored in the body as tension, stress or overwhelm.

In Life certainly in the present days. We are bombarded with directions and advice as to how we should live our lives and this can be very confusing. Issues that we all have instead of being opened up and discussed are simply painted over emotionally to fit in with the expectations of modern living. It can feel a very lonely isolated place for many individuals with no one that they can truly open up to with the pain they may be feeling inside.t

Taking the first step to seek counselling is a very brave thing. You may be experiencing some difficult emotions, or feeling overwhelmed. It may be that the coping skills that you have always relied on are no longer working for you. It may be that you feel ready to learn more about yourself and your place in the world. I understand how you may be feeling. I am here to listen to you, to support you and to provide you with a safe space for you to explore your life story, and empower you in improving your emotional wellbeing.

I don't know what brings you here today but looking for counselling and finding the right therapist takes courage. Life can be hard and asking for support is difficult at times. My goal is to make sure you feel seen and heard. Whatever you are struggling with, whether it is a troubling memory that doesn't seem to leave you alone, a day to day struggle that you feel is holding you back, an experience you're dealing with and didn't think you'd face, or if you're feeling at the end of yourself - talking about these things is a huge step toward resolving your issues and moving to a place of thriving in the life you want to live.

Yes. Most counsellors offer reasonable rates or will work on a sliding scale basis. Many accept health insurance. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the counsellor.
