What do you need to get your life on track, to feel fulfilled, relevant, in control and in the drivers seat? Sometimes we just need a bit of support to get there, an outside eye, a gentle challenge. We always need, and deserve to be treated with sensitivity, respect and dignity. Life is full of challenges, but you don't need to face them alone. Letting someone in can be scary, but you really do deserve to be supported, and you have every right to live a fulfilling, rich and creative life.

I mostly work with clients who have been adversely affected by abuse, trauma, and relationship difficulties. I have extended this to work with couples and relationships. I work by tuning into each client’s individual circumstances and listen to how their life experiences have impacted them. I can offer some solutions, such as coping mechanisms for managing trauma responses such as anxiety and depression. I also offer help in developing practical skills in managing narcissistic behaviour, such as carefully considered boundary setting, recognising that boundaries often come with negative consequences.

Available weekday evening's between 6pm and 11pm. Each person's journey through life is a unique experience, and when times are difficult it can often feel overwhelming and lonely, like no one understands. Things before that were easy to do are now becoming increasingly tough, or at times even impossible. There are many reasons that lead people to seek out therapy, you have already overcome the first hurdle to recovery, and that is seeking some support.

Choosing a therapist can be daunting, especially when you may be feeling confused, depressed, anxious, or at a low point. Maybe you're thinking how can anyone understand? If you’ve had no experience working with a counsellor, or previous counseling wasn't what you expected or were ready to continue, I understand this can be difficult.

I like to encourage my clients to explore their issues and work towards a better understanding of themselves and the world around them. Together we will look at finding your inner strengths so that you can build in them developing a greater self awareness. However, FINDING THE RIGHT PERON IS THE MOST IMPORTANT ASPECT OF THERAPY.

Do you feel like something needs to change but you don’t know how? Does that change seem impossible? Whether you feel overwhelmed, stuck, angry, alone, anxious or unaware of what is happening to you, I can help you to make that change. To become more like the “old” you again, or maybe to find a “better" you, or even the "real” you. I help people with anxiety feel more relaxed, people pleasers find confidence and assertiveness, people affected by the past to overcome the legacy of their experiences, those who feel overwhelmed to find a calm space and the bereaved to grieve.
