I can help clients with the strong feelings and physical changes linked to the various life stages they go through, as well as issues around gender and identity, self-harm, developmental trauma, loss of motivation, exam and work stress, eating disorders and relationship issues.
I strive to be an approachable, warm and accepting counsellor who can offer you a confidential, safe and non-judgemental space to talk about whatever it is that is troubling you. I work integratively, but I do so from a philosophically person-centered standpoint, in a relaxed yet respectful environment. I can help restore past issues and facilitate positive change, often in as few as six sessions, using a Solution Focused/CBT approach that focuses on overcoming life obstacles and moving away from feeling 'stuck'. I can help you with building confidence, resilience and focusing on new achievements and becoming goal oriented.

Struggling? In a dark confusing scary place? Maybe you're feeling a mixture of difficult feelings; anger, sadness, guilt, shame, low mood, anxiety, loneliness, feeling like no-one understands or that no-one listens. Perhaps you’ve experienced a crippling loss of someone or some part of your life and you don’t know where to turn. You don’t know what to do, you feel stuck and lost. So, what are you going to do? Go talk to a stranger about it? Counselling can feel like a terrifying thing to do.

If you have come to a point in your life where things have become too much and you feel you or a member of your family need some extra support, then counselling is a great way to reach out. Through building honest, trusting relationships, I aim to help my clients understand and overcome their difficulties while developing tools to help them in the future. I am an integrative counsellor, which means I draw from a number of different approaches to counselling. This allows for an open space where we can find the best way of working which suits you. This might include creative work, sharing my knowledge on theory or using mindfulness.

I have over 10 years of experience within mental health settings in the NHS and private settings, qualifying as a clinical psychologist in 2018. I believe therapy is about building a non-judgemental and trusting relationship, where we can work together to make sense of your mental health symptoms and find ways to develop more awareness and ways to cope. Finding the right psychological approach is key to the smooth running of this process. Therefore, I utilise a range of psychological approaches that I adapt to suit you. My aim within therapy will be to be curious, empathetic and honest and draw on individual strengths.

Are you finding it difficult to cope? Perhaps life 's pressures have left you feeling depressed or feeling increasingly stressed and anxious? All too often modern living can leave us with very little space to reflect about our own needs. Our relationships and health can suffer as a result. Psychotherapy can be helpful when emotional suffering becomes too much and at times of crisis when life can feel difficult or unmanageable. I am a qualified and experienced psychodynamic psychotherapist, particularly skilled in working with depression, anxiety and difficulties in couple relationships.

Before clients begin therapy they are usually on the edge where they have tried to cope on their own for a sustained period, however this has no longer become effective. I can provide you with a discreet, comfortable and confidential space to support you through these challenging times which are hard to manage on your own. Discretion and a non-judgemental attitude are the key qualities I hold and what keeps my clients coming back to see me each week. I aim to provide a safe and engaging space to support my clients in moving forward. Therapy can be helpful for i) those wanting to understand the causes and the maintenance of their problems ii) thinking about where you are in your life and how you wish to move forward iii) exploring relationships iiii) managing general life stressors. On a personal note, I was born in the UK and have lived in Singapore and Hong Kong. I come from a culturally rich and diverse background which enables me to appreciate the uniqueness of each individual I see. I therefore work with people in the context and development of their own lives.

Sometimes things in life can start to seem overwhelming; the useful strategies of the past may not be as helpful as they used to; we can find ourselves lost and unsure. This can often lead to added, despair, anxiety, and self-criticism. It can often seem hard to see a way out or to ask for help. You may need someone to listen without judgement and provide insights into understanding patterns in your life . You may also desire strategies to change your actions and the way that you think about things. The way to a fulfilling and valued life is available without a life -long commitment to therapy.

Seeking support can be a challenging step to take. I am here to help. As a chartered clinical psychologist registered with the Health & Care Professions Council, I am trained to provide individuals, couples, and groups with evidence-based psychological treatments for a range of difficulties that can affect general well-being and quality of life . You may struggle with low mood and anxiety, and may be affected by issues such as relationship problems, low self-esteem, loss and bereavement, trauma, sexual problems, or substance misuse. It is also common to experience a number of issues at once, making problems seem insurmountable.

On our journey through life , we can become lost and caught up in negative thoughts and feelings. This can change our perception and take us out of balance. It may also affect our well-being by creating problems in our relationships which may lead to anxiety, depression or low self-esteem. Counselling can help us to understand patterns in our life that cause distress and helps to facilitate insights into the core of our thinking, our self belief, our behaviour and the imposed limitations to bring about change. I have experience in working with teenagers and adults with anxiety, depression, loss and bereavement and low self esteem.
