I have experience working with: Anxiety, Stress, Depression, Work Related Stress, Grief, Loss, Sexual Abuse , Domestic Violence, Low Self-esteem, Image Based Sexual Abuse and Pre-trial Therapy.
I offer a confidential, warm and welcoming space to provide a platform for your voice to be heard without judgement. As an integrative therapist, I believe we all have within us the capacity to grow and develop which leads to a more productive and content life. I understand how certain life experiences re-shape the way we think, behave and react; changing the way we view our world. If you have ever heard yourself wondering. 'I should have done...,' or 'I am not feeling good enough somehow,' I will work alongside you to explore and challenge the validity of those thoughts and to find alternative ways of thinking and being.

My main areas of specialism are relationship and sexual issues, disordered eating, and recovery from adverse childhood experiences, including sexual abuse .
Sometimes the difficulties you have in the present are influenced by how things have been for you in the past. How you have coped with the tough experiences, the beliefs you have developed about yourself and the world, your habitual responses. You want to improve things for yourself but you can't see a way through. Maybe you have tried other ways of getting better, maybe with some success, but the underlying problems just turn up in different ways. You are here because you know that you are not out of options. Online Psychotherapy has helped many people like you. And with me, you are in a safe pair of hands.

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

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.
