I am taking a sabbatical from the end of May 2024 so will only be offering short term work until then. I offer counselling and psychotherapy for children, young people, parents and adults. Young people can often have worries that they find hard to talk to their parents about. Talking to someone outside the family can often make all the difference. I offer space for parents to talk about their worries and work on their parenting strategies. Sometimes I work with a parent and child together if there are particular relationship issues. I also work with adults for individual problems.

I try to make therapy as available to as many people as I possible can. The cost of therapy can be quite steep so I keep my prices as low as I can so that more can access it. Therapy is about getting to where you want to be by making your own unique road map, so that you can use it again in the future if need be. I'm an Addiction Psychologist by trade, with 18 years of private practise behind me, but a lot of my work is helping many different age groups with problems such as OCD and PTSD etc. Please feel free to contact me and we can have a chat to see if i can be any help to you.

Do you struggle with your emotions? Do you find yourself feeling moody and irritable? Maybe you are battling with high levels of anxiety that is ruining your life. Maybe you’re feeling sad and depressed robbing you of enjoyment in your life. Do you experience a range of intense emotions in a short space of time and slow to get back to “normal”? Do you end up having angry outbursts then feel full of regret afterwards? Do your relationships suffer as a result of intense emotions? Have you developed coping strategies that whilst in the moment might help but longer term are causing additional issues?

Everyone faces challenges from time to time. This is important and helps us to grow and develop our resilience and wellbeing. However, sometimes life can feel tricky for prolonged periods of time and can leave us feeling overwhelmed and worried that things may never get any better. A clinical psychologist can support us to better understand the social, emotional and/or behavioural difficulties we are experiencing. They can help us to develop our own resilience by introducing new ways of thinking about and managing situations that leaves us feeling less troubled and more content.

My experience in secondary schools working with children and young people has given me an understanding of how challenging life can be for our children. Often parents/carers find themselves feeling helpless as they see their child experience anxiety, low self esteem, self harm, isolation, suicidal ideation... I have been a practicing counsellor for children and young people in schools, agency settings and in private practice for over 5 years. My specialist qualification is in children and young people and I am an accredited member of the BACP demonstrating a higher standard as a competent, ethical and independent practitioner.

If you're feeling depressed or anxious and can't seem to shift this state of mind no matter what you try, or you feel like you can't get control of your 'self' in some fundamental way, then you might like to try IFS therapy. This gives clients a model for working with their own minds which can be used both in therapy and in daily life. It puts you easily back in the driving seat – and after years of feeling that there's nothing you can do about the moods that tend to sweep over you, that can be a huge relief.

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 believe that every human being, most of all, is striving for freedom. This could be a freedom from dependency on anything we use to compensate or self-regulate (food, drugs, shopping, etc). Freedom from compulsive thoughts, anxiety and depression. Or, this could be the freedom that we are all aware of but lost or unable to assign a deeper meaning to, to navigate to a more authentic direction in life. In my clinical practice, the methods I use are all aimed at assisting in the awareness, comprehension and embodiment of freedom.

Sometimes life can become overwhelming and every day can feel like a challenge. One can feel “stuck” in relationships, a career or with life in general. There can be moments where both personal and professional development feels obstructed and the joy of life is missing. Then one might need help to find a way through these difficulties. Psychotherapy is an opportunity to explore the difficulties in a confidential, non-judgmental and supportive space. In this exploration one can not only gain support and understanding, but also start noticing things about one's self that may never have been noticed.
