I understand how difficult it can be to decide to seek help. This is why I offer a no cost first session to see if you can feel comfortable with me. I am very experienced and approachable and I have helped many people get through difficult times. Anxiety can feel overwhelming. It can lead to physical symptoms of panic, nervous tension, sweating and breathlessness and it can be difficult to think clearly. "What-if" thinking takes over and negativity sets in. I can help you break out of this cycle of doubt by working on restoring your coping skills.

Are you experiencing difficult thoughts and feelings such as anxiety, depression, anger and/or sadness? Do you perhaps find it hard to talk about what is going on for you with people around you including your loved ones? You may be noticing that the way you are coping is not helping you to feel better in the long term. I strongly believe that everyone deserves a chance to learn how to manage difficult things that are going on for them, and to move forward to a place where they can feel positive and their mind is at ease. I can work with you collaboratively, and help you to achieve your goals.

Reaching out can be difficult. Maybe you feel stuck, anxious, unsettled, lost your way, or uncomfortable with whom you have become. The difficulties within our lives can change who we are or how we see the world. It can lead to thoughts or behaviours that take us away from who we are, resulting in a feeling of something not being right, struggling to cope or to make sense of things. When entering therapy, our life experiences enter too, and healing occurs within the processing. We will work together to build trust and explore your emotions and thoughts within a non-judgemental and safe environment, working at your own pace.

Welcome. It can feel difficult to start with counselling, so let me start by saying the work we do will be guided by your own choices and needs. You can express these in a confidential space of emotional safety and we can explore what is happening for you and better understand it. Together we can define and move towards your goals at a pace that suits and feels safe to you. I work with low mood, sadness, anxiety, depression and feelings of being overwhelmed.

Existing as a Neurodivergent person in a Neurotypical world can certainly come with a number of challenges. As a Neurodivergent person myself, I understand how difficult it can be to take the first step in starting therapy. Being proudly and openly neurodivergent I hope to create comfort for my clients in the knowledge that I get it, the struggle is real. Whether decoding social cues, or managing everyday stress, I bring an understanding heart and tailored strategies to our sessions. Beyond neurodiversity, I work primarily with Adults and Young people facing diverse struggles.
