I support adults affected by low self esteem, anxiety, depression, or relationship issues, often those who have experienced the death of a loved one, childhood sexual abuse , or other trauma in life.
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.

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.

I work mainly with adults from all walks of life, all looking to find a more meaningful and fulfilling way of living. Whatever your issues are, together we will explore why you are feeling this way, and work towards change. We will look at what has led to your current issues and what it is you are looking for in order to create those changes. I have a lot of experience working not only face to face but also online and via phone. There is always a choice of a better way of feeling but we sometimes get stuck and unable to find a way forward alone. I can help you to untangle how you are feeling and clear the way for a new path.

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 work best with clients that are ready to make a commitment to change, and are ready to develop skills of self-reflection and compassion. Many of my clients have big questions about life and their place in it, as well as questions of who they are and what they want. Some clients don't really know what they want but know that something isn't quite right - that's ok too!

If you are looking for a safe space where you can finally let go, and heal what is making your life smaller than it could be, you are in the right place. I've helped many people achieve things that they never believed possible, letting go of their past negative thoughts, overwhelming feelings and dysfunctional behaviours. Your anxiety and depression are just symptoms that something happened to you that was difficult to digest. It is not who you are. When you discover what brought up those symptoms and heal those wounds, your anxiety and depression can disappear. You can then create something new, more authentic. Let me guide you.
