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.

If you’re reading this you must have determined you would like help to heal and resolve difficulties in your life. I have a wealth of experience working with adults and children who have endured severe trauma, mental ill health (anxiety, depression etc) and have guided them through the healing process. Trauma affects both brain and body, causing somatic pain and toxic stress. Abusive relationships leave there damage behind long after they have ended . I’m not a fixer and I don’t have a magic wand, however, I can help you untangle the confusion and find some much needed hope to help you reach your goal.

Trained with IARTT in the Rewind Technique for those suffering from trauma or PTSD .
I know how important it is to look after our emotional well being irrespective of age. Stresses, strains and anxieties can hit at anytime. It maybe a current situation or something from our past which impacts on our ability to manage our current situation. Even anticipation of future events can impact on us at an emotional level. There are many reasons why counselling can be beneficial including low self-esteem, low self-confidence, bullying, family issues, bereavement, infant loss, relationship issues, and anger to name but a few, It takes strength and courage to acknowledge you may need help.

Having over 14-years’ clinical experience of working within mental health services and corporate wellbeing specialising in stress management, anxiety, depression, trauma, PTSD , loss, and workplace burnout. My approach interfaces Western neuroscience, psychology, and psychotherapy with the ancient wisdoms of how the human mind-body system works, as a method towards understanding and alleviating the stresses and strains of the modern world we live in, mind-body system overload, technology stimulation where we rarely get five minutes away from computers or phone, and very little time to ourselves – a recipe for disaster!

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.

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.
