We will all encounter challenges during our lives. It may be difficult to ask for help but in reaching out we show strength - it takes courage to be vulnerable, open up and acknowledge we need support. I specialise in working with low self esteem, transforming deep-rooted issues, anxiety, depression and feelings of being stuck - whether it be in your relationship, in your job, or life in general. I have been working on an individual basis with clients both short and long term since 2015. Counselling can allow you to gain inner clarity and strength, as well as help you to live a more meaningful life.

You may be overwhelmed with anxiety or need support to cope better with a challenging situation. You may be feeling confused and need support to gain clarity, or want to explore on a deeper level what is stopping you from feeling content.

I am a warm, caring, understanding and empathic person who is hugely passionate about psychotherapy, about people and about helping others come into a place of freedom. I totally believe in the transforming power of the therapeutic relationship. I have seen it transform my own life and the lives of countless others that I have counselled. I am now in the privileged position of using this passion to help enable and empower others to turn their own lives around as well.

Maybe you're a bit different... maybe you're neurodiverse, maybe you're non-binary, maybe you've got some 'diagnosis' labels. You're looking for something a bit different, not scented candles and warm words but someone to engage with who's going to 'get it' and work with you. Maybe you're ready to commit to unpicking the tangle of threads that lead to this moment, maybe you're delaying, waiting for some 'perfect' moment.

To begin counselling can be a life-changing decision. You may want to address thoughts and feelings or specific challenges that can be hard to speak to others about, or perhaps made a decision to address the impact of past trauma, loss or shame. By sharing your story and emotional journey within the therapeutic space, it can be heard in a new way, as though for the first time. In this way, different narratives can be explored, allowing you to take greater ownership of your life and your future.

Counselling has changed my life for the better and I chose to train as a Psychodynamic therapist to help others benefit in the same way. My approach places a strong emphasis on the relationship between client and therapist - in other words between you and me.

At times life is tough and this can challenge our emotional health and well being, making us feel overwhelmed, stuck, anxious, depressed, angry or lacking in self esteem. You may be finding it difficult to put words to your current feelings or make any sense of what you are experiencing and this can be both frightening and isolating. I believe counselling can be a transformative and meaningful experience, with change made possible through a supportive therapeutic relationship, which helps us to move towards acceptance of self or empowerment to positive change. As such, I am dedicated to bringing about healing and growth in others.

I am a UKCP-registered integrative existential psychotherapist with extensive experience in delivering long and short term psychotherapy to individuals. As an existential psychotherapist, I am particularly interested in how we make meaning of the world and of our lives, and how this affects our day to day functioning. Experiencing a crisis of meaning can be a major source of stress and anxiety. If your life starts to feel meaningless to you, you may end up in a hopeless and depressed state. The therapist’s role is to navigate the difficult feelings that can arise in the process and help you find renewed purpose in your life.

As an integrative psychotherapist (BACP accredited) and EMDR therapist, I draw on a combination of different approaches, so that the therapy is tailored to each client's individual needs. Clearly professional qualifications & experience are important, but I also place great value on the healing nature of the relationship between client and therapist. Therapy is a collaborative process & I believe that building trust, feeling understood & in charge of decision & choice making within the process are all key aspects of the counselling journey for clients.

As I work relationally and with unconscious processes I work well with any presenting issues that are related to attachment. These may be experienced as anxiety, depression, OCD, bereavement issues, substance use etc. You may have difficulties forming meaningful lasting relationships or have recognised a pattern in things going wrong in your life which make you unhappy. You may have current issues with your children that are echoing past hurts of your own that need attending to. I can help you to explore these issues within the safe and holding relationship that we can create together.

Sometimes children and young people can behave in ways that are difficult to understand. As their parents/carers, we can feel confused as to what might be happening for our child and how we can best help them. Your child might be behaving in ways that frighten you (e.g. violent outbursts or self-harming behaviours) or in other ways that concern you (e.g. increasingly anxious or withdrawn behaviour, refusing school etc.). You may have attended parenting courses, read books or spoken to friends/family, but still feel at a loss as to what to do to help your child and how to feel connected to them again. Now is the time to seek help.

Most people enter therapy with the entirely understandable aim of addressing and easing current symptoms of distress (depression, anxiety, difficulties sustaining intimate relationships etc) and receiving reassurance and comfort when life seems hard to bear. But I believe that we also need to explore deeper; that it is only by getting underneath these symptoms and trying to understand them and where they come from that real and lasting change can take place. I see the relationship between client and therapist as central and the process as a collaborative journey undertaken by us both.

It's not always an easy decision to come for therapy and you may decide to come to seek additional support for something that has been worrying you for a while or due to a current upset such as a relationship breakdown or bereavement. I am a professionally qualified therapist with over 15 years experience. The therapeutic relationship allows you the time and space to explore things that are causing you distress and/or anxiety. I can help you to explore your past and how it may help you to understand your current situation. I give you the opportunity to explore the way you are feeling and gain a more empowered sense of self.

COVID 19 is putting huge strain on all of us and we are finding ways to cope. However, if you feel old issues and feelings are cropping up for you, it may be time to root out the problem so the present situation becomes more bearable. EMDR can help do that. In an initial online session we can discuss your problems and find out what will be most helpful for you. Past overwhelming experiences in your life ( e.g. bereavement, sexual assault, bullying, medical or health experiences, childhood abuse or neglect, transport accidents) may be intruding in a way that feels unmanageable. If so, then a trauma-focused therapy will be vital to

Whether it be anxiety or depression, relationship issues or loss in all its forms, my focus is on your well-being. As a qualified counsellor and therapist with experience in education, employment and charitable settings my aim is to help you to explore whatever difficulties or challenges you are experiencing. It may be that patterns of behaviour that kept you safe in the past are now holding you back from living a more fulfilling life and by identifying these patterns and being curious about the protective role they played we can begin to loosen their grip here in the present.
