As my client I will work alongside you in a caring and non-judgemental way. I will strive to understand and make you feel less alone in what you facing.

I have a lot of experience in working with anxiety, depression, trauma and bereavement, both with adults and adolescents. I am also a Clinical Supervisor which means I supervise the work of other counsellors. I am also an EMDR (eye movement desensitisation reprocessing) practioner and am working towards becoming a Psychotherapist in Traumatology.

If life feels so difficult that it seems impossible to move forward; if you feel stuck in emotional distress and you’re struggling to deal with it on your own then you may find it helpful to speak to a counsellor. Counselling can help you to understand the way you think, feel and behave, and it can help you to bring about positive changes in your life. When past experiences are troubling you, counselling can help you to accept what has happened and process the feelings that you've been left with. Counselling can be life-changing and even life-saving; it can help you to find the ‘real’ you again.

For so many of us Coronavirus has been a time filled with fear, sadness and huge uncertainty. It feels as if the 'rules' have changed, that our beliefs about life have been shaken to their core. Anxiety thrives in the unknown and even as we begin to edge slowly away from this pandemic, there are many who feel unable to free themselves from the trauma of the last 18 months. I offer a warm, non-judgemental and professional space where my clients can make sense of their experiences, process their traumatic memories and begin to regain the part of themselves they thought they had lost. My EMDR sessions are between 1.5 and 2 hours long.

To address addiction is often very difficult and takes incredible courage. But the gifts of recovery from addiction are tremendous. As your therapist I will quickly identify the causes, conditions and underlying concerns that are causing your pain.
