You're a sensitive, thoughtful person. In so many ways you know you should feel lucky to have achieved what you have. But lately you've been feeling worried, overwhelmed and sometimes a bit hopeless. And your sensitivity - which could be your superpower - instead seems to only make you feel worse. You feel like you should be able to sort yourself out and carry on - but deep inside a small inner voice is calling out that it needs to be honoured and heard. You long to find somewhere that you can feel truly listened to and understood. Where it's okay that you're a complex person, full of contradictions and questions.

My core purpose is to increase my clients’ emotional and behavioural mastery of the challenges of change. Change is an unplanned, unexpected event whose impact upon us, our families and our lives is momentous. It may seem to us that the event has shattered our identity and impaired our sense of self-hood and continuity. We may feel as if we no longer recognise ourselves as the person that we were before the change-event occurred.

You know something isn’t right in your life, but you don’t quite know where to begin to get help. Maybe the idea of speaking with somebody feels a little daunting, or you’re concerned you won’t be able to find the words, or they won’t understand where you’re coming from. This is absolutely normal, and is what most people feel before the call a therapist to get help. Even if you’ve been to counselling and psychotherapy before, the thought of explaining your story yet again might fill you with dread. What you could really do with is somebody that gets it, that you can feel comfortable with, that can help you feel understood, quickly.

I am a Relate-trained couple counsellor with more than 10 years' experience. I work with couples and individuals who want to explore their relationship. The following are some of the areas where couples counselling can be helpful: when you feel distant from each other and want to regain a sense of closeness and connection; when you are aware of negative patterns; when you find yourselves in the same difficult place when you try to talk to one another; if you are struggling to rebuild trust and reconcile, for example after an affair.

Do you feel overwhelmed, unsafe and lonely? Are you finding elements of your life a struggle and don't know where to turn? Can you no longer see the wood for the trees and have lost direction? Many people lose touch with the person they are supposed to be for many reasons and seek to find their true selves again but may just need a helping hand and support along the way. Counselling can be the first step back to removing the barriers which have kept you lost and help you back on the path you were intended to follow.

A warm, relational approach is the foundation of my work with children, young people and their parents. As an Integrative Child and Adolescent Psychotherapist, I aim to enable each person to communicate and feel understood from the depth of their experience. This means finding each person's unique ways of expressing themselves, and tailoring my technique to meet them "where they're at". I create a safe space so that children and young people are able to bring their most painful feelings and thoughts out into the room with me. At the same time, humour and fun are important elements of my work.

Taking the first steps towards getting the support you need is often daunting so feel good about finding the courage to do so. I hope that you find the information you need to help in choosing the right therapist to walk alongside you whatever it is that has brought you to this moment. When life presents us with challenges it is often comforting to talk these through with family and friends, but sometimes this is just not possible. Perhaps you feel that your problem would be a burden to others, maybe the issue involves those closest to you and is embarrassing or difficult to talk about. You will want to be listened to, empathically.

We are all able to agree that our physical health is variable, but it may be much harder to admit that our psychological health is in constant flux. All too often, we find ourselves buying into the idea of the "stiff upper lip": that "mental health issues" affect only other people - and "weak people", at that! It can be very daunting, therefore, to recognise that we need help and then to take steps to find a professional who will help things improve. I understand those concerns, because I've been there: and I also have experience of the positive effects of psychotherapy - from both sides of the consulting-room!
