I am a BABCP accredited CBT/REBT therapist supporting adults with anxiety and depression. Whether anxiety is a new problem or something someone has grappled with for a long time and whether anxiety is specific such as OCD, GAD, social anxiety, panic, health anxiety and phobias or a sense of unease, the evidence-based and solution focussed approach of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy can help. I also support clients with low mood, depression and emotional problems such as anger, shame, guilt and low self esteem. Sometimes clients are not sure which way to turn or feel stuck; both CBT and REBT can help you to clarify a way forward.

I understand that deciding to start counselling and therapy can feel like a big step, from the start of therapy I encourage my clients to feel empowered through the therapy process. It may be that you've lost a loved one, experiencing family issues, relationship breakdown, struggling with anxiety or work-place stress. It's common to be experiencing a few of these life issues at the same time, which can lead to overwhelm and burnout. As a psychotherapist I aim to offer a tailored approach to each client in therapy sessions.

You might be surrounded by people and still feel alone. You might be screaming in a roomful of people and still not be heard. You might spend a big part of your life trying to fit into somebody's frame but still not feel enough or your true self. You might feel that something is not right, even though you can't put the finger on it, but still know it doesn't feel right. The path to finding yourself, thriving, making a change, and building connections with others could be unfamiliar and even scary. I am passionate about working with people that have experienced trauma.

If structure is less of a goal and need, I aim to provide a settling in which trust is foremost and so creating a safe space to talk about difficult emotions.

Female Counsellors

Does it matter what gender my therapist is?

In general, this is not an important factor, as there is no relationship between a therapist’s gender and their efficacy. Some clients, however, prefer to see therapists of a particular gender, whether due to their own past experiences with men and women, or ingrained beliefs about how people of different genders think and behave. Exploring the roots of such preferences and considering what one wants to address in therapy can help someone determine whether their therapist’s gender truly matters to them.

Should I see a female therapist?

Many people—not just women—prefer to see a female therapist, either because they believe that a woman will be able to relate to their specific challenges (for example, sexism in the workplace) or because they imagine feeling more comfortable disclosing sensitive information to a woman. Such beliefs may not turn out to be accurate, however, and adhering too rigidly to a gender preference can at times hinder a client from finding the best therapeutic match.

Do therapists get specific training to help with women’s concerns?

Therapists are trained to provide care to clients of any gender. However, some therapists—both men and women—may pursue additional training in feminist therapy, gender-specific issues, or women’s mental health. Female clients may wish to ask prospective therapists whether they have received specific training in the client’s primary area(s) of concern, or whether they have worked extensively with women on issues similar to their own.

How can I inquire about a therapist’s experience in treating women?

It’s OK—even encouraged!—to ask a therapist directly whether and how often they have treated women in the past, or whether they have treated women dealing with the client’s most prominent concern(s). Competent therapists will be happy to share their educational background, preferred treatment modalities, and prior client experience to help an individual find the therapist best suited to their needs.
