If you are reading this I wonder if life feels difficult at the moment. Perhaps you are feeling anxious, depressed, living with the distress of uncertainty? Finding it difficult to let go of control, of perfectionism, feeling vulnerable or struggling with living in a ‘never enough’ world? Is this having a negative effect on your relationships, or are you struggling to understand traumatic events in your past, and you can no longer soldier on as before? However you may be feeling, it can feel really scary to come and talk to a counsellor. But I respect your courage to reach out, and I will listen to you with warmth and empathy.

"Change begins with self awareness". Is there something in your life that you are unhappy with but can’t seem to shift it? Are you looking for a change in your life but not sure what it is, let alone how you’d achieve it? Do you find yourself succumbing to the same old bad habits, critical-self talk or negative ways of thinking? Do you feel exhausted by the effort you’re investing in life but not feeling satisfied with the results? If so, you are by no means alone, but the solution is within your reach. I can help you build your self-esteem and self-confidence and achieve the life balance you're searching for.

During our lives we encounter loss including bereavement, separation, ill health and relationship or transitional difficulties. All of these external factors can and will affect how we relate to others, the world around us and most importantly ourselves. This may include withdrawing, substance use or abuse, unhealthy eating patterns and other self harmful behaviours. Our work together will be to focus on these changes and how you can develop and cultivate a positive relationship with yourself, and others. I have supported many people who experience overwhelming symptoms of trauma, low self-esteem, anxiety and depression.

There are many different reasons to seek out counselling - whatever your reason, I aim to provide a safe, confidential space and time that is yours. A place for you to talk and be heard, to explore, to imagine, to feel and express without judgement.

If you’re reading this I guess you want to know a little about who I am and whether therapy would be good for you. In which case, hello – nice to meet you! I think I can help people with just the right kind of safe, non-judgemental environment that allows us to understand and work through issues. I work with clients face to face, or remotely by phone or Zoom, using a range of exercises and techniques that I have personally developed to help release tension and improve life. With a bit of work, you can end therapy feeling more secure in yourself and free from all that stuff which has stopped you from being the real you.

Everyone can struggle at times - with anxiety, low self-esteem, depression or just feeling low. Close relationships can go stale or get into difficulties. Bereavements can knock us sideways - sometimes 'hitting' suddenly even though it happened some years ago. Recent or past traumatic events can have a huge impact on our wellbeing. These are some of the emotional difficulties people struggle with. Close relationships have their ups and downs and emotions, even negative ones, are a normal part of our daily lives. It's when they drag us down, affect our quality of life, become overwhelming, that counselling can be a great help.
