My own experiences of therapy have taught me that my own change and growth became possible when i could open and relax into a felt sense of trust and safety. I appreciate that if you are struggling now or have suffered in the past- to open yourself up to- and risk trusting another might bring mixed feelings of hope and fear. Yet, to take a step into the unknown is the invitation and challenge of therapy. I have been a client; in my experience the risk i took set out upon the adventure of counselling has been an acceptable one and the rewards are great.

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 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.

Reaching out can be hard. Are you feeling overwhelmed? struggling to cope with your situation? your emotions? your experiences? If your trust has been damaged, talking to someone who will take time to understand you can be a huge relief. Perhaps you need support through a crisis or you are at the end of your tether with multiple stresses. Even if you have longterm issues that seem stuck, talking to someone can make a difference. You may gain insight into the roots of your difficulties and find qualities in yourself that have never had a chance to develop. The aim is to help you live a more rewarding life.

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.
