Hello. You might be considering counselling for the first time, or have had previous experience of therapy. Whatever your situation, therapy can help. I know from experience that we're all capable of change, and finding the right counsellor can very often be the beginning of that process. Through a series of therapeutic conversations, I can help you with a range of issues including anxiety, loss, relationship and family difficulties, sadness, and questions around identity.

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you (e.g. violent outbursts or self-harming behaviours) or in other ways that concern you (e.g. increasingly anxious or withdrawn behaviour, refusing school etc.).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.

I help people connect with their own inner healer and the healing power of nature. My primary methods are ecotherapy and internal family systems. I see people with any type of emotional issues and through compassionate enquiry we build a shared understanding of why these symptoms are here and what they may be asking for to transform. I specialise in eating disorders and couple therapy, and see many people for psychedelic integration and spiritual enquiry.

I am a qualified psychotherapist. My practise offers a safe, supportive and confidential space for clients who work within the music and entertainment industries. Alongside my practise I work in the music industry so I can identify with problems that can arise from these areas which I've found to be both helpful and supportive to clients. Whilst all may appear great on the outside, I understand how in reality life can feel very lonely in such high pressurised situations for artists and industry professionals and family members of.

I specialise in Anxiety, Depression and Family Conflict and additional expertise supporting students with Academic Anxiety including those with Dyslexia & Autism Spectrum.
If you've arrived here, you are already thinking about counselling. You might feel depressed, anxious or overwhelmed and finding it difficult to cope with the challenges of life. Perhaps you have experienced a recent loss, had a sudden change of circumstances or are struggling with relationships. Maybe you don't even know what's troubling you. Research shows positive change happens when there is a good match between client and counsellor. It’s difficult to choose a counsellor or know what to expect from counselling without having a face-to-face meeting. This is why I offer a reduced rate intro session of £15 where we can meet

We all find relationships and intimacy challenging - being close to people challenges our beliefs about ourselves and our trusted ways of relating do not always serve us well. When we get stuck over and over again in our intimate, family or work relationships, it is often due to our deeply buried or unconscious beliefs about ourselves. Many of my clients express what a relief it can be to share their problems and to realise that they are not weird or sick. We all struggle for a reason. In a group it can be especially helpful to realise that you are not alone - there are other people struggling with 'what it means to be human'.

I am particularly interested in the family background of my clients whether I am seeing them in a group or individually.
I am a psychotherapist and group analyst and have been a therapist for nearly 30 years in many different settings. In my approach, I am interested in making connections between experiences and difficulties in the present, with events and relationships from the past. In my experience, difficulties people experience as adults can often be part of a repeated pattern. I will be curious about relationships in your life but also the way you relate to yourself and to others. This will include how it is in the therapy relationship - whether individually or group.

Trained in the Internal Family Systems Therapy model of psychotherapy but I weave in years of medical practice and nature based shamanic approaches to help clients with a wide range of problems including chronic pain / illness, addiction, complex trauma, relationship difficulties, and spiritual emergency.
Are there parts of yourself you don't like anymore or that feel lost, wounded or ashamed? Are you suffering from disconnection, anxiety, low mood, addictive behaviours, interpersonal conflict or fatigue? My integrative therapeutic approach aims to re-connect you with your authentic Self and from this place heal and integrate into wholeness all 'parts' of yourself in a compassionate and non-judgemental way. As an Internal Family Systems therapist I work at the intersection of physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual sickness with a focus on somatic; transpersonal; and nature based / animistic approaches.

There are many reasons you may be seeking counselling but I imagine you are wanting something to change. My aim is to facilitate a relationship that is tailored to you and created with you. This provides the conditions for you to freely and safely explore the challenges you may face, the trauma you may have experienced and who you are. Counselling is not only about what we think of ourselves and our life but more importantly, our felt sense of ourselves and our visceral experience of life. Giving space and awareness to our experience is what informs us of what is needed for healing, growth and change.

I have been working on an individual basis with clients both short and long term since 2015.

Do you ever think that your life could be so much happier or more satisfying than it is? Counselling could be the first step towards making it so. Many of us grow up with negative influences around us: indifference, criticism, insecurity, rejection, sometimes even hostility and aggression. As we grow up we find ourselves absorbing these energies, and in adult life they show up as low self-esteem, as anxiety, as outbursts of rage or as depression. They interfere with our work, with our relationships and with our ability to enjoy and make the most of our lives.

Life can be really hard sometimes, difficult things happen or people struggle emotionally for a variety of reasons. Lots of people need support at some time in their lives for themselves or people they care for. I genuinely believe that most people who are struggling want to improve their situation and need support to enable them to be and feel the best they can. However, just because you did not cause all your problems does not mean you do not have to work to try to make things better. That is where I can help, providing support, therapy and specialist assessment for young people and adults.

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.

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.

Family Therapy Counsellors

What do family therapists do?

A family therapist facilitates the process of understanding and improving how a family functions. The therapist will help family members develop empathy for one another. They’ll seek to understand existing patterns, misunderstandings, and conflicts that arise, in order to help the family arrive at a realistic, unified understanding and develop the coping skills they need to build stronger relationships.

How long does therapy for families take to work?

Therapy manifests differently in every family; a common time frame is 12 weekly sessions, but some families may see improvement after just a few weeks. Families should discuss their goals with the therapist at the beginning of the process and periodically revisit those goals to assess their progress together.

How can you encourage a family member to attend family therapy?

You can encourage family members to attend therapy by expressing with both love and concern the challenges you see and explaining how a therapist could help the family navigate those challenges together. An outside perspective can help everyone feel heard, get on the same page, and develop new skills. If family members are still hesitant, it may be helpful to emphasize that family therapy is short-term—it won’t last forever.

Is therapy for families effective?

Family therapy can significantly improve family dynamics and relationships. Research suggests that family therapy can help individuals understand their role in the family, communicate and solve problems together, reduce conflict and draw boundaries when necessary, and develop coping skills for stressors, major life changes, and mental or physical illnesses within the family.
