I have experience of working with people suffering from trauma, anxiety , depression, stress, addictions, bereavement, relationship difficulties and negative body image as well as major life changes such as divorce or illness.
It takes courage to start therapy. Often, we are at our most vulnerable at these times. I believe the most important thing to establish first is trust. I am not here to tell you what’s ‘wrong with you’ or what you ‘have done wrong’ in the past. My aim is to meet you where you are and invite you on a journey for us to explore together, in collaboration, what is upsetting you and holding you back.

I have experience in supporting people of all ages, who have brought a wide range of issues, including: bereavement, relationship difficulties, anxiety , depression, low self-esteem, addictions, self-harm, redundancy, illness and caring responsibilities.
Working from a shepherds hut, in a peaceful, rural location, I offer both short term and long term counselling. People come to counselling for many reasons, allowing yourself some time and space to talk can help you understand the causes of your unhappiness, distress, anxiety or feelings of disconnection. Being able to link feelings to your patterns of behaviour or ways of relating with others, can help you make sense of certain aspects of your life. Counselling can empower you by helping you make sense of what is happening, deal with painful thoughts, and enable you to make the changes you need to move forward.

Have you ever felt like you do not belong? Have you felt like you are from a different planet, compared to your family and friends? Nobody could possibly understand how you feel or even understand the massive range of emotions you experience on a day to day basis? Dealing with anxiety , depression, panic attacks, low self-esteem, low self-confidence, and stress is very isolating. . You constantly feel alone and overwhelmed

Have you ever wondered why anxiety and stress affects your ability to think clearly or make decisions? Research in neurobiology suggests this can result from your body experiencing a chronic flight, fight or freeze response.
I offer a warm, compassionate and safe space for us to explore the areas of your life where you may feel overwhelmed, stuck or want to make changes. Perhaps you have noticed yourself repeating the same old patterns or feel life has gone off course and need support or a new perspective to help get things back on track. Whatever your reasons for seeking counselling, I will take the time to listen, understand your needs and what is important to you, before we decide the best way to move forward together.

We all experience anxiety , low-mood or unwelcome thoughts or images at times.
The demands of everyday life can be difficult to deal with for all of us at times. Talking about your psychological health with someone who is comfortable and familiar with such issues, who can listen without judgement and who is trained to help you overcome such difficulties, may be a helpful step forward. As a registered psychologist, I am trained to help people with their psychological health using a range of approaches to treatment. I often use a Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) approach to treatment, as it is an evidenced based approach that is well supported by research as being effective with a wide range of concerns.

Are you feeling anxious, depressed, stuck ? Not quite yourself ? Perhaps you’re struggling with unexpected changes… difficulties in your relationship, the loss of a loved one, health problems? Or maybe you are wanting to move on from a situation that's holding you back, recover from a hurt or disappointment or regain your sense of self and what to do with your life? Whatever our age or circumstances, there are times when we could all use some support to light our way forward and to develop a deeper understanding of ourselves and our current situation.

Anxiety Counsellors

What are the most common treatments for anxiety?

Talk therapy, particularly cognitive behavioural therapy, is the most common treatment for anxiety. Studies have shown it is equally effective as medication. Other popular forms of therapy are popular, depending on a patient’s experience. Exposure therapy, for instance, can be useful for people dealing with fears and phobias, or who have experienced traumatic events. Dialectical Behavioural Therapy may be useful for patients who need help with emotion regulation. Anxiolytic medications, like benzodiazepines, can also help with calming a person enough to focus on the skills they’ve learned, and physical exercise has been shown to help symptoms of anxiety across the board.

How long does therapy for anxiety take to work?

The amount of time needed to alleviate symptoms depends on the severity of a person’s condition. Some therapies may take 5-20 weekly sessions to show results. Anti-depressant medications typically take two to four weeks before a benefit is felt. Anti-anxiety medications are felt typically within 20-30 minutes. Medications are best used to offer a patient a better headspace in which to work on techniques learned in therapy. Exercise, improved sleep habits, and meditation are effective, but takes weeks or months to show results.

When should I seek treatment for anxiety?

Everyone feels anxious at times, but when anxiety causes disruption to your daily life, it may be time to seek help. Such disruption can be mental, physical, or both: having fear dominate your thoughts, avoiding situations or objects that bring on feelings of anxiety, or experiencing shortness of breath, sweating, dizziness, or panic attacks. When these symptoms are recurrent and distressing, it may be time to talk to someone.

How effective is treatment for anxiety?

Treatment for anxiety has been shown to be moderately to highly effective, according to a large body of psychology studies and analyses. For some people, treatment using CBT or exposure therapy alone is effective. Others respond best to a combination of medication and therapy.
