If you've noticed you're not feeling the same joy you used to and you're worrying about things you didn't used to but you're not sure anyone can help counselling really is the first step towards feeling so much better. I know my own counselling journey changed my life and that is why I am so passionate about what I do. When we understand where our negative patterns stem from we can change our whole lives and break the cycle for our own children. There are reasons why you are struggling and together we can figure out why you are so stuck. Life can feel so much better and this really is the first step.

Sometimes, life feels a little out of balance. It's important that we find our own answers to the things that concern us about our lives. It's also important that we find a way to do this that suits our preferences, our needs and our styles. It's vital that we find a place where we can consider those questions about our lives and the situations we find ourselves in with patience, compassion and care. Finding a counsellor or psychotherapist to be with us can bring enormous benefit during difficult times.

Many people feel lost and bereft in an ever-changing and challenging world, and some of you may also be impacted by significant issues from childhood or later interpersonal relationships. This can lead to feelings of 'stuckness', hopelessness or depression, and that you cannot escape or be free from past experiences. For others, you may find that you have anxiety, relationship difficulties or general stress and burnout. Some people may have experienced significant losses and you may find yourself questioning what you want from life and what is really meaningful to you.

Hello, I work close to nature, in a private and quiet garden cabin and my dog Bertie is with me when he feels to! I want to support you to be OK with yourself. Some of the following questions we might over the time we work together: What are your needs and are you able to express them? What you would like to change in your life and how would life be different after counselling? How do you see yourself and the world and how do you feel you are seen? I like to work creatively, using therapeutic tools to help you connect aspects of yourself such as the sandtray, body awareness, and ideas such as the Drama and Winners triangle.

I work with Couples & Individuals. You’re probably here because you need support around a problem and are looking to find a qualified professional you can trust with your story. I work relationally, which means that I place the quality and the value of our therapeutic relationship as paramount in our work. Balanced, mental health is vital for us to live satisfying and fulfilled lives. I hold deeply the value of truly being present with you and the work we are doing together. A healthy counselling relationship builds a safe and secure foundation for the work whilst also presenting challenge and opportunity for insight.

My person-centred modality carries the core belief that we are all born innately good. Things happen to us along our journey in life. Learnt behaviour and experiences shape our thoughts and feelings in our development. We can repeat our reactions to circumstances when they occur in adulthood. We can become unconscious of our behaviours because of the busy lives we lead. It's as if our experiences stick to us like "papier mache' " in the developmental years, forming a different self. This can be an uncomfortable and unwelcome reality that we want to change in adulthood or when it becomes painful, but we often do not know how to.

Are you a parent looking for support for your child? Perhaps you have noticed that they are struggling in their daily life, that they no longer engage in hobbies or family activities, or that they are finding school difficult. Perhaps you are finding their behaviour difficult to manage and this is starting to impact the whole family. Or maybe you simply want to understand your child better. I work with a range of difficulties, from everyday problems through to more complex issues related to mental health and child development. There is no ‘one size fits all’ and I will adapt my approach to suit you, your child and your family.

Marriage Counselling

How does marriage counseling work?

Marriage counseling works by teaching couples concrete skills to communicate with one another and solve disagreements in healthy ways. A trained mental health professional works with both members of a couple to explore difficulties the couple may be having and helps them develop skills to address these matters. Couples who don’t have any difficulties but want to prepare for marriage may develop skills for the future.

How long does marriage counseling typically last?

Marriage counseling is a short-term form of therapy; the process may last between four and eight sessions. Other forms of relationship guidance from mental health professionals, such as couples therapy, are longer lasting, may focus on the past rather than just the present, and are tailored to the individual couple and their emotions, history, and patterns in the relationship. Couples therapy often lasts for 12 weeks or longer.

Is marriage counseling effective?

Marriage counseling helps many couples develop relationship skills that may not have been acquired or tested in a relationship; partners may be better able to communicate and address conflict following counseling. However, there are many different forms of marriage counseling, and this form of counseling does not have as strong an evidence base as other modalities such as couples therapy.

Is marriage counseling effective if only one partner wants to go?

Yes, marriage counseling can still be effective if one partner convinces the other to engage in the process. Of course, whether counseling is effective depends on the couple’s commitment to work on their relationship; however, the short-term, skills-based nature of marriage counseling makes it a relatively easy “ask” of a partner, and the hesitant individual may see its value once counseling begins.
