Welcome to my practice. You may have arrived here through a stressful and painful journey. Maybe your life feels constricted, confined to the 'outside' looking into 'normality'. Maybe spaces around you - physical, social and cultural surroundings, family, work, education - seem unwelcoming or hostile. Maybe you feel exhausted by trying to protect your right to a space in life. Clients contact me for many reasons: anxiety/stress with physical symptoms, past adverse experiences, rape, abuse, anger, loneliness, disturbing dreams or intruding images, life threatening or chronic health conditions, life-long disabilities, life crisis.

I am a BABCP accredited CBT/REBT therapist supporting adults with anxiety and depression. Whether anxiety is a new problem or something someone has grappled with for a long time and whether anxiety is specific such as OCD, GAD, social anxiety, panic, health anxiety and phobias or a sense of unease, the evidence-based and solution focussed approach of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy can help. I also support clients with low mood, depression and emotional problems such as anger, shame, guilt and low self esteem. Sometimes clients are not sure which way to turn or feel stuck; both CBT and REBT can help you to clarify a way forward.

Clients generally come to me when they are struggling with some aspect of their emotions, thoughts or behaviour. My aim is to help my client with accepting or changing some aspect of these three areas. Every client comes with unique issues and from my seat I view the issues as one, "a block in the road to wellness". I am keenly aware that all clients come with individual goals and I am here to help. Many of my clients use the phrase “I just want to feel better". This is my hope for everyone who engages with me in therapy. “TO FEEL BETTER” I offer confidentiality, openness and transparency at all times.

Do you approach your partner about an issue only for it to be twisted around and the problem turned back on you, leaving you confused? These are common questions people ask in counselling and I can help you look at patterns of behaviour, why it might be happening in your relationship, how to decrease conflict and ultimately staying as safe as possible.

If you are suffering from symptoms related to PTSD or complex PTSD, EMDR therapy can help to alleviate your symptoms. Clients working with me using EMDR have found that their symptoms such as flashbacks and/or being unable to go to certain places can be alleviated or reduced to the point where they are manageable. This work is supported with self help techniques to manage new anxieties as and when they may present themselves, but from a new and more adaptive perspective.

I'm an experienced counsellor and a registered member of the BACP. I offer a confidential, safe and non-judgemental space in which you can explore whatever brings you to counselling. It could be that there have been things that have troubled you for some time and which you now feel ready to think about in more depth. Maybe recent events have caused you to feel like you need some help to cope. Or perhaps you just don’t feel right and would like some space to explore why that may be. Talking with a skilled, impartial counsellor can help you find the words to make sense of your experiences and find a way forward.

Female Counsellors

Does it matter what gender my therapist is?

In general, this is not an important factor, as there is no relationship between a therapist’s gender and their efficacy. Some clients, however, prefer to see therapists of a particular gender, whether due to their own past experiences with men and women, or ingrained beliefs about how people of different genders think and behave. Exploring the roots of such preferences and considering what one wants to address in therapy can help someone determine whether their therapist’s gender truly matters to them.

Should I see a female therapist?

Many people—not just women—prefer to see a female therapist, either because they believe that a woman will be able to relate to their specific challenges (for example, sexism in the workplace) or because they imagine feeling more comfortable disclosing sensitive information to a woman. Such beliefs may not turn out to be accurate, however, and adhering too rigidly to a gender preference can at times hinder a client from finding the best therapeutic match.

Do therapists get specific training to help with women’s concerns?

Therapists are trained to provide care to clients of any gender. However, some therapists—both men and women—may pursue additional training in feminist therapy, gender-specific issues, or women’s mental health. Female clients may wish to ask prospective therapists whether they have received specific training in the client’s primary area(s) of concern, or whether they have worked extensively with women on issues similar to their own.

How can I inquire about a therapist’s experience in treating women?

It’s OK—even encouraged!—to ask a therapist directly whether and how often they have treated women in the past, or whether they have treated women dealing with the client’s most prominent concern(s). Competent therapists will be happy to share their educational background, preferred treatment modalities, and prior client experience to help an individual find the therapist best suited to their needs.
