Are you struggling with a loss or bereavement? These can be the most painful and devastating experiences to go through. Perhaps you feel on your own, drowning in an emotional whirlpool of sadness, guilt, anger, confusion and other painful feelings. Enduring that whilst having to continue daily life can be exhausting, you might feel disconnected from everyone and everything sometimes. You might feel really isolated, anxious and hopeless and wondering how long you’re going to feel like this? The need to keep all this to yourself, perhaps hiding how you’re feeling from everyone else can keep you stuck in an endless cycle of sadness

Hi. I'm an experienced CBT psychotherapist, working face to face and online with people experiencing: OCD, panic, general anxiety, phobia, trauma, procrastination, health anxiety and chronic worry. Having developed coping strategies and changing the way I engage with my own anxious thoughts, I made the decision to train and help other people do the same. I wish I’d known about CBT when I was in my 20s! I have worked in private practice for 5 years and trained and worked previously with the NHS. I have Acceptance and Commitment Therapy training and attend regular workshops in all areas to keep my practice up to date.

I help clients with issues such as suicide ideation, stress, low self-esteem, panic disorder, anxiety, illness, baby loss, relationships, work issues feeling sad and phobias.
It can seem like the hardest thing to do to access counselling, but it can be life changing if you take that first step. You may not be entirely clear on what you want but just have a feeling that things don't feel right and you have decided that you want to understand what, why and how to refocus and live the life you feel is best for you. Or perhaps you are very aware of a struggle with difficulties, which may already be formally diagnosed by another professional, and you want to regain some control instead of feeling that these issues take over. I can support people in achieving their goals wherever they are in their journey.

Therapy can help us to manage our lives and our relationships better, it can lead to more fulfilling relationships and a renewed sense of aliveness. Learning how to manage symptoms such as overthinking, insomnia, anxiety, depression, lack of energy, or an enduring sense of helplessness and despair, can lead to renewed energy and a greater sense of freedom in our lives. In my sessions I often use teaching, in order to help make sense of and understand why you might be feeling the way you do and to help you learn ways to make changes in order to better manage those feelings.

Do you ever feel distress, anxiety, depression or sadness that can feel uncontrollable? Have you suffered a recent trauma and need help for PTSD? As a psychologist with ten years experience offering therapy, often to individuals with complex needs, I am passionate about helping you to break your cycles and understand why they occur.

Are you living with feelings of self- doubt, blame, anger or shame? Do you need help to cope with depression or anxiety? Maybe you have suffered loss, and doubt your ability to sustain meaningful relationships with family and friends. Perhaps you are in a relationship that is stuck in the rut, or mired in hopelessness, negativity, and mistrust. It may be that your relationship has changed from a loving one to one of repeated misunderstandings, heated arguments or frosty silence. Stressful life events can bring about such difficulties, or sometimes disappointments simply accumulate over time.

At your pace, we will understand and reflect on past and present experiences, inviting compassionate inner dialogue, coping strategies, and movement away from shame and criticism.
