Asking for help can be hard. You want someone to listen to you, but find the vast listings of counsellors available can make your head spin! My approach is simple. I have a passion for helping individuals and couples reach their full potential. My aim is to help you find a positive outcome no matter what the problem is. No matter how deep you feel you have sunk, there is always a way back up. I use common sense in my approach and trust that it is the counselling relationship, not ‘psychobabble’ that will prove fundamental to the counselling process. It is completely possible for you to feel so much better than you do right now!

Sometimes we feel we are not at peace within ourselves anymore. Internal arguments break out - for instance a part of us might say it wants to change things for the better while another part argues back that nothing can ever really help. Imagine that this inner clamour of voices are parts of your self...like members of a family doing what families often do - squabbling, making up, sometimes helping, sometimes obstructing. What if there was, in your inner family, a calm, compassionate presence, that was like a good parent, able to bring cooperation, health and balance? Imagine having more energy to devote to achieving your goals.

I provide a safe environment allowing you space and time to talk about issues which may be too big to tackle with friends, family or partners. I am only offering telephone or online video call sessions, this is because I continue to need to shield. Since the very start of the pandemic I have worked in this way and there are some significant benefits for clients - allowing you to be in control of your comfort in your own environment, reducing time commuting to therapy sessions and both an environmental and financial benefit.

At some point in our lives most of us have had times where we find life is difficult and are not sure where to turn or which direction to take to solves these issues. I believe choosing the right counsellor for you is extremely important - it stands to reason that if you feel a connection with someone you will work more productively towards your end goal. I work with clients with many areas of difficulty - anxiety, depression, relationship/emotional problems, addictions, past influences or life crisis situations such as bereavement, divorce. Counselling should be non judgemental, accepting and supportive.

I believe our childhood experiences form who we are in our adult relationships, we carry with us the traumas we experience in our lives, these can manifest themselves as psychological and physiological problems, we have to survive so we bury the unpleasant feelings, they are buried alive and want to get out, we suffer, experiencing anxiety, depression, mental and physical illness, the internal and external voices are overwhelming. Counselling is an opportunity to address these feelings, to sit with emotions that may be unfamiliar. I know counselling can help because I have seen many individuals break the cycle.

I believe experiencing difficulties is part of being human and something we all encounter at various points during our lifetime. What gets in the way of living life more fully - relationships with friends/family/partner becoming strained; experiencing a traumatic incident; growing up in an environment which didn’t feel nurturing and supportive or which hurt you physically or sexually; someone you loved or cared for has died; living with chronic illness; feeling stressed at work or as parent; reaching a pivotal age and being unsure about the future; needing to make a decision but finding it hard; feeling ‘off’ and not being sure why.

Life can be extremely challenging, particularly in these current strange times! Anxiety and depression are more prevalent than ever at the moment. As an integrative counsellor, I draw upon a number of theories and styles to support you in therapy enabling me to work in the best possible way to suit your needs. However, despite these different approaches, it is the relationship which has been found to be the most important factor in facilitating change. I provide a warm, non-judgemental and empathic relationship, which is based upon trust and sensitivity, to enable you to explore concerns from the past, present or future.

Are you struggling with never feeling good enough, no matter what you do? With social media & our constant connection 24/7 it’s easy to get sucked into comparing ourselves to others, making us feel increasingly anxious & not enough. Do you find yourself trying to change who you are to fit in with the crowd? Maybe you're unsure who you even are anymore, you know you’re feeling unhappy & insecure but you don’t have a safe place to share these feelings. I know that you want some answers, you want to understand yourself better, to feel lighter & be able to move forwards, but the hardest thing is knowing where to begin..
