Has someone close to you come out as LGBT and has this left you unsure what to do with that? You want to be supportive and show them you love them but this is so new for many of us and we don't always know what to say that won't offend anyone. We also might have our own worries coming up - about the future and whether or not what we hoped for is even possible now, about how to cope when others around us are unable to be supportive and sometimes it brings up things from the past we had hoped were no longer an issue.

I am very happy to work with clients from LGBTQ communities.
Sometimes the challenges that we face become too much. Maybe you experienced or witnessed violence or abuse at any time in your life. Perhaps you are feeling anxious, angry, stressed, depressed, rageful, scared or in despair. I offer a warm and confidential space in which we can explore together and try to resolve your problems. My practice is anti-oppressive and anti-racist, and I believe that we can be damaged by the expectations of the world around us as well as by our earliest and most intimate relationships. Do get in touch and let's see together how I can help you make the changes you desire.

You maybe feeling some or all of these and the thought of getting back on track feels like a challenge.

I am a person centered and psychodynamic counsellor incorporating CBT and solution focused techniques. I work a lot with the unconscious mind; 95 percent of brain activity is beyond our conscious awareness, so it's helpful to delve into the root of our problems that may be hidden from our consciousness. I work creatively with adults, young people and children using art therapy, guided visualisations and stone work to make the therapy experience less intimidating. I teach mindfulness, help people grow in personal development and overcoming past traumas.

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.

Hello. Life inevitably gets tough sometimes. It may be that you have experienced something that has deeply impacted you, or you may feel unsure about something, you may be struggling with anxiety or depression, or you might be feeling overwhelmed, stressed or stuck. You may have a particular problem or issue that you’d like to discuss with someone in confidence. Or, it may be behavior change that you’re seeking? Perhaps you’re having difficulty in your relationships? Or struggling to make sense of or come to terms with loss or issues that happened in the past. Maybe you just have a general sense that something isn’t quite right?

Does life sometimes feel like it’s getting on top of you and you aren’t quite sure where to turn to? Could you benefit from a place to talk, to explore your thoughts and gain some clarity? Stress, anxiety, depression or general low mood can and do affect us all at some point in our lives. It’s a normal reaction to often challenging or adverse situations. Short term Counselling and longer term Psychotherapy can offer support and an opportunity to promote a greater sense of well-being

"Maybe the journey isn't so much about becoming anything. Maybe it's about unbecoming everything that isn't you, so you can be who you were meant to be in the first place."unknown. 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. A place where you are not alone in your journey, but have someone alongside you to support you and honour your unique life experiences.
