I explore areas such as; communication, conflict, sex, parenting , identity, historic and current abuse and the 'family system' to help bring understanding around dysfunctional patterns of behaviour and their consequences, in the past and the present.
I am qualified as an integrative counsellor and my busy private practice reflects a broad range of clients and their issues. I work with people of all ages, from all backgrounds struggling with anxiety, depression, addiction and stress. I also have experience of clients with bereavement, loss, panic attacks, trauma, sex and pornography addiction, anger and eating disorders. I work with individuals and couples and favour a systemic approach looking at context, social environment and behaviour patterns as well as attachments from the past that impact the present.

Talking to friends or family can feel impossible, you might not want to feel like a burden or offered unwanted advice. Maybe you have found yourself providing support, not receiving it. Friends and family, although well meaning don't always leave you feeling heard or validated. In our sessions you will be the priority, we will reflect your past present and future to understand what is happening and how to make changes that feel right for you at a pace that suits you. We will figure out what is keeping you stuck in your discomfort and identify ways to begin moving forwards.

Motherhood can be profoundly intense and triggering.You deserve to thrive,not just survive day to day, pouring your energy into other people.My clients have often overcome stressful life events or difficult childhoods and find that 'old stuff' bothers them again because of the stresses and triggers of motherhood.Becoming a mother involves a breaking down of your old life and building a new one. It is a creative process that includes mourning for lost parts and usually some confusion and uncertainty. The transition is enormous and different for each woman.

Hello. You're probably here because you are finding life difficult in some way. Life can be really hard, and it can sometimes feel even harder looking for support. As a therapist I love helping people with that by providing a safe, non-judgemental space to explore and work through some of these difficult things together. In therapy we do this through developing a 'therapeutic relationship'. This means that we commit to working together over a sustained period of time to understand and process what is going on, so that positive to change can begin to happen. This isn't always easy, but it's absolutely worth it.

Whatever you are feeling now, there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Life can be tricky sometimes and you may think that people can't understand you because of what you are going through. Sometimes you need someone to listen to you, to help you to understand what is actually happening. I can help you to walk through this journey, to find a way to a safe place which respects your values and beliefs. You can talk about any issues that bother you and explore your emotions without judgment. I have 19 years of training and experience in a broad range of topics in psychotherapy counselling and educational therapy.

You may be feeling life is just too much to manage right now, perhaps you've had a bereavement or loss, or maybe something from the past is impacting on how you are feeling. Asking for professional help can feel daunting, but once you've made that decision, it can bring relief and then finding the right person, who can hear your concerns and support you, is really important. I can offer a safe, confidential space and give you the time and space to explore what is going on for you, to help you gain awareness and insight into what's troubling you and help you reach your goals.

I am passionate about living a fulfilled life. I believe this is rooted in positive and satisfying relationships. Sometimes, these relationships become stuck, hit an obstacle, or become overwhelmed by disagreements and conflicts. Sometimes, our bodies do not perform or function sexually in the way we would like them to, which can have a significant impact on our well-being, our sexual satisfaction, and ultimately our relationships.

Parenting Counsellors

What does therapy for parenting look like?

Therapists may work with parents individually, together, or include the whole family to find solutions for the problems a parent faces. Many parent-based therapies work on a parent’s relationship with their children, problem-solving within the family, and analysis of family dynamics. Therapy conducted remotely by video may be helpful in allowing a therapist to observe how families interact in their own homes.

When should a parent seek therapy?

When behavioural problems begin to disrupt the healthy functioning of a family, it may be a good time to look into therapy. If parents find that children are acting out in school, have started using drugs or alcohol, have developed eating disorders, or other similar red flags, a therapist may be able to help.

How long does therapy take for parenting problems?

Depending on the severity of a family’s challenges and the type of treatment utilised, therapy for parenting can last from weeks to months. Cognitive behavioural therapy is a pragmatic therapy type that can be brief, most often ranging from between 5 and 20 sessions. Structural family therapy, which inspects family dynamics, often takes several months. Parent-child interaction therapy is typically shorter-term, lasting between 10 and 20 sessions. For any therapy, the duration will depend on the progress made and results realised.

Can therapy help parents dealing with burnout or stress?

Parenting is difficult. Parents may dismiss or conceal feelings of exhaustion, overwhelm, or escape ideation—imagining withdrawing from their parental obligations altogether. but left unattended, these feelings can have negative effects on the whole family. A therapist can help parents work on the skills they might need to better cope with the burdens of parenting and help them be the best parents they can be.
