I am an experienced registered counsellor. I offer a warm, calm, confidential and non judgmental space for clients to explore thoughts and feelings. I work with a range of issues with both males, females and couples. I also work at SAFE (stop abuse for everyone) and specialise with clients, both male and female who have been through demostic abuse. Whilst I offer therapy for many issues I specialise in working with victims of domestic abuse, control issues, self esteem and lack of confidence.

I am now less restrained by my anxiety, thank you” ( Female , 47).
You may simply be looking to create a reflective space in your week to look and think differently about your current situation and life. Or maybe you want to work collaboratively in a focussed and goal-oriented way on improving wellbeing, strengthening your self-care strategies or understanding and managing stress and anxiety better. I consider myself to be kind, compassionate and gently challenging and aim to create an environment in which clients can move towards changing their lives for the better, learning new skills and gaining insight.

I support people from the UK and beyond, of diverse backgrounds, in particular mixed-race individuals, women and those who are highly sensitive.
Welcome. I offer a compassionate, heart-centred approach to existential crises. Our search for meaning and purpose, who we really are and why we are here often comes under the guise of other problems or illness. We may experience depression, anxiety, grief about our planet, shame, deep loneliness, identity concerns, suicidal feelings or quest for soul and and a spiritual path. During therapy, I can help you develop self-compassion and inner strength, so you can face difficulties while clarity and self-knowledge grow, leaving behind what is not supporting you and moving on to live your authentic self, your truth and your dreams.

Do you have the feeling that you want to make a change in your life? Perhaps something just doesn't feel right, but you aren't sure what it is. Or maybe you know exactly what the issue is, but aren't sure what to do about it. You may already feel mentally healthy, but want to give yourself a further boost. Whichever applies most to you, I can support you to get you to where you want to be. Counselling lets you experience the emotions that are normally too big for your day-to-day life, to empower you to make the changes you want to make.

I work with a wide range of difficulties such as anxiety, stress, relationship and family problems, trust issues, betrayal/affairs etc alongside more specialist counselling for alcohol, drugs, addictive/destructive behaviour, trauma and PTSD. I find most people like to have balance between talking about the past and concentrating on achieving change in the here and now. I provide a safe space free from judgment, or the need to censor yourself, where you can explore and gain insight into whatever is holding you back from being at peace with who you are and how you live your life.

I work with people who are experiencing some stress or anxiety, feeling depressed, and also the common problem that 'something isn't right but I can't quite work out what'. I can help you develop coping strategies and process what's happening until you get back to a position where you feel happy and in control of your own life. I have a particular interest in working with sexual abuse and trauma. I also enjoy working with student counsellors - please get in touch to discuss arrangements.

Choosing a professional to help you with your struggles can be a stressful process. Many people have heard of Cognitive Behaviour Therapy but aren’t sure what it involves, and don’t know whether they need CBT, counselling or something else. That’s not a problem - I will provide an initial phone call to answer questions, listen to your concerns and discuss with you what you are looking for. My first session by video call involves an assessment of your current difficulties from the perspective of a trained mental health professional, and working with you to establish whether CBT or counselling would be most beneficial for you.

I have a special interest in the transitions and dilemmas that can occur at any point during a woman ’s life. These might include marrying; pregnancy; changes in role; relationship difficulties; and the challenges presented at menopause and during the aging process. It is common to experience uncertainty, confusion, fear, and pressure at times of change or loss. Depression and anxiety may emerge as well as other, less common mental health issues. Times of change or loss can be difficult for everyone. I work with all genders, without discrimination. It is not necessary to have a mental health diagnosis to benefit from our sessions.

Do you put on a brave face but feel different on the inside? Perhaps you’re empty and numb, or overwhelmed by emotions? Are you finding it hard to cope day-to-day? I know how tough life can be at times and how lonely it feels when no one seems to understand. If you’re wondering when you’ll feel happy or hopeful again, or you’re worrying about the future and fearing the worst, or maybe you’re struggling with a big change and a sense of who you are; I’d like to help. Being able to talk freely to someone, without fear of judgement or shame, can be a huge relief.

We don't get wounded alone and we don't heal alone." Carl Jung. Are wounds from the past affecting how you are functioning in the present and your thoughts of the future? Our early experiences can create patterns of trust and distrust which affect how we are in our relationships with others and ourselves, as well as how we respond to trauma and stress throughout our lives on many different levels. However, whilst we may be shaped by the past I believe that we do not need to be trapped by it.

Maybe there is a specific event you are aware of, or thoughts & feelings are overwhelming for no known reason. Perhaps you've not been feeling yourself or maybe something has always been missing. Together, we can explore the feelings, thoughts & relational patterns that have been causing you distress. I can support you to gain a deeper understanding of the effects of past experiences & how these may impact your struggles in the present. I hope to encourage self-acceptance as a good enough person, quietening the inner critic & bringing compassion to the relationship you have with yourself & transforming your relationship with others.

Having the time and space within counselling to explore your thoughts and feelings in a safe and confidential environment is often the first step in making positive change in someone’s life. Our problems can sometimes feel too big or heavy to carry ourselves. Often it’s hard to pinpoint what’s actually wrong, but that low mood, and anxiety over powers us. Counselling will help you understand your behaviours and emotions that little bit better and give you insight into why you may be finding things difficult. With this understanding, it is often the catalyst for positive change leading to a more balanced and healthy future.
