I feel very passionately about the positive effect that therapy can have upon peoples lives. Over the years I’ve worked with a range of challenges that people can experience. Working through pain or difficulties together is a process I find very rewarding. Often people will arrive being unsure what to expect and feeling apprehensive about what is to come. My approach is to create a welcoming, warm and confidential space where together we can gain an understanding of your situation. I am trained to draw from several therapeutic models so we can find a way forward that suits your preferences and goals for change.

We can sometimes find it difficult to connect with those closest to us or even with ourselves. Traumatic events, change, loss and ongoing stress can lead us to feel overwhelmed, stuck, anxious, irritated, confused or low and lacking in motivation. If this resonates with you, I offer a confidential space for you to explore, reflect and process your experience, without judgement. My approach is collaborative, creative; working with calm compassion and gentle curiosity. By supporting you to enhance self awareness and develop self acceptance, you can move towards more satisfying, life-affirming, choices and connections.

Having musculoskeletal injury and chronic pain can be tough, especially when it affects how you feel, how you feel about yourself, and stops you doing the things you love. I’m a personable psychologist who specialises in injury and chronic pain. Research shows that if you understand your pain, you hurt less. So together, we can explore your pain experience, answer your questions, and find ways for you to get back in control of your recovery and being you again. My support uses a unique blend of psychology support, latest knowledge from pain science that tells us how and why we feel pain, and wellbeing promotion.

I have a life long fascination in the nature of us as humans and in particular our emotional lives. I am interested in how complicated we all are. Sometimes it can help to take time out to try to understand ourselves better, and how we are in the world, for example, ‘Why do I keep making the same mistakes?’, ‘’Why am I so fearful, stressed or unhappy?' or ‘How did I get here?’. Therapy can help to work through some of the complexities in our lives or to make sense of and mourn painful experiences and to keep a sense of creativity and meaning alive.

As a Retired Firefighter, Counsellor & Person, I believe the main thing that my clients like, is to simply be understood. I have a great deal of life experience, and it can be very difficult to find someone who understands what it's like going through life's trials. Especially when it comes to being in the services, having someone who has been exposed to similar situations & who just 'gets it!' can be a very rare & liberating experience. Accessibility is also important to my clients, not just in terms of physical access to my room, it's also about simplicity of working online, I simply send a link in an email, we connect & that's it
