Are you feeling really low and depressed and anxious but don't know why? You are stuck and do not know how to overcome this feeling....Thinking about counselling can be quite daunting and not knowing what to expect can be quite frightening.

People who are finding every day a real struggle with strong, even overwhelming feelings of depression, anxiety, stress, anger. At the other end of the spectrum are some who may have feelings of dissatisfaction a sense that they are not getting all they want in their lives. I believe that all of us want to strive to be happier and more fulfilled than we currently are. We want to feel a connection with other people and to have a sense of well being and connection with the world around us.

Living a life feeling like we're mostly dropping in and out of suffering eventually catches us up. On my journey to becoming a therapist, I'd come to accept that I'd been doing this for the best part of the last thirty years. But for the last five years I've freed myself from the grip of these issues, feel so much better, freer and more confident. I've also come to understand that we can become way too adept at merely surviving life via an almost constant need to find the nearest source of distraction, especially when certain feelings are spiked. Now this isn't about losing these options, but it is about not being stuck with them.

I love working with people, getting to know you and hearing your story. I believe that we are all unique. One of the things I love most about my work is the privilege of seeing someone begin to thrive and to enjoy their life again. I love helping to find some inner calm, clarity of thought and to be practicing self compassion as part of their everyday lives. I work in a bespoke way, tailor making my approach to each person. However, that said, everyone's needs compassion and so a compassion focused therapy approach runs through all of my work. I am most definitely a human first and a psychologist second.

Psychotherapy helps the person with relationships, roles, perceptions, beliefs and other struggles within the self. There are times in life when it can be hard to cope with difficult situations and challenging problems. Psychotherapy can provide a therapeutic encounter where together we can make sense of unwanted feelings and thoughts. Symptoms can be understood as manifestations of distress and their meanings can be explored together with care and respect. The aim is to make life happier, easier to live and invite creativity and growth in the person.

When you feel strong enough to take that first step, I will help you take time out, by creating a safe space where you will be seen, heard and can talk things through at your own pace.

I will make every attempt to provide you with a safe and comfortable space in which to explore whatever may be concerning you. My main aim is provide a safe, non- judgemental space where we can build an open & honest relationship.

It can seem like the hardest thing to do to access counselling, but it can be life changing if you take that first step. You may not be entirely clear on what you want but just have a feeling that things don't feel right and you have decided that you want to understand what, why and how to refocus and live the life you feel is best for you. Or perhaps you are very aware of a struggle with difficulties, which may already be formally diagnosed by another professional, and you want to regain some control instead of feeling that these issues take over. I can support people in achieving their goals wherever they are in their journey.

Alcohol Use Counsellors

Are there specific medications for alcohol use?

There are oral medications approved to treat alcohol use disorder—such as disulfiram, acamprosate, and naltrexone, which also comes in an injectable form. These medications do help people reduce their drinking as well as avoid the problem of relapse. Naltrexone helps reduce cravings, disulfiram can make a person feel sick when they drink, and acamprosate may help ease symptoms like poor sleep and anxious feelings.

How do alcohol recovery or rehabilitation programs work?

In inpatient programs, individuals live in a facility with other patients in recovery; in outpatient programs,individuals live at home. These facilities are staffed with healthcare professionals including physicians, nurses, psychologists, counselors, and psychotherapists. Staff can also include people who have recovered themselves, serving as mentors and guides. These programs may use abstinence, harm reduction, detoxification, psychotherapy, and other tools for recovery.

How do 12-step programs combined with psychotherapy work?

Members of 12-step programs help each other reach abstinence and work to maintain it. These programs promote complete change in the individual’s emotional, mental, physical, and even spiritual perspectives. Some programs require that new members attend 90 meetings in 90 days. Many people do attend these programs in conjunction with their work in psychotherapy; the combination of therapy along with 12-step can be extremely effective.

How does harm reduction combined with psychotherapy work?

According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, harm reduction prevents death, injury, disease, overdose, and substance misuse. People who choose harm reduction for alcohol use reduce the amount of alcohol they intake. It is not abstinence-based like a 12-step program, but combining harm reduction with psychotherapy proves to be effective for many people.
