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.

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.

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.

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.
