Are you feeling depressed, confused about what you feel, ground down to the point where you feel unable to cope, or simply wishing you could talk to someone and feel understood? Individuals choose therapy for a variety of reasons and often the biggest hurdle to getting help is an inner voice telling us our problems are nothing special and we should "just get on with it". I provide a safe, empathic environment where you can talk about your concerns without fear of being judged and to provide you with the means to work out your own answers and create the life you want.

I am a Humanistic Counsellor and a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner. I believe that even when faced with what may seem to be insurmountable difficulties, we all have the capacity to heal, recover from the traumatic experiences we may have faced, and live life more fully. Taking the first step on a healing journey can be challenging but finding the right therapist that you can trust and feel comfortable with can make all the difference in helping you move forward and feel safe and supported in exploring the issues you want to work with.

Or are you trying to cope with an unexpected change but find yourself struggling? Are you asking yourself why is my life so hard? Why can’t things just get back to being “normal?” Loss of any kind and change of any kind can come out of the blue and can turn your life upside down. Are you needing to talk to someone about how you are really feeling?

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 have a life long fascination in the nature of us as humans and in particular our emotional lives. I am interested in how complicated we all are. Sometimes it can help to take time out to try to understand ourselves better, and how we are in the world, for example, ‘Why do I keep making the same mistakes?’, ‘’Why am I so fearful, stressed or unhappy?' or ‘How did I get here?’. Therapy can help to work through some of the complexities in our lives or to make sense of and mourn painful experiences and to keep a sense of creativity and meaning alive.

People may come to therapy for different reasons - overwhelming feelings or else a lack of feeling, loneliness, or just a sense of something missing. I believe strongly in the power of the therapeutic relationship. Because this is how we discover how we relate to others, who we really are and what we want from our lives. It can be life changing. I am a member of the HCPC and my work abides by their ethical framework.

As a therapist and midwife I understand the barriers you might feel asking for help during the perinatal period (pregnancy, birth or postnatally). Many people struggle to talk about their anxiety, depression or doubts and worries about being a parent. You might feel judged or that you have failed in some way and there can be a real sense of pressure to feel positive throughout, making it sometimes feel really hard to admit you are struggling, so I understand just how significant asking for help is. Reaching out is positive and is the first step towards recovery - of your sense of self, your self worth and your wellbeing.

As a Retired Firefighter, Counsellor & Person, I believe the main thing that my clients like, is to simply be understood. I have a great deal of life experience, and it can be very difficult to find someone who understands what it's like going through life's trials. Especially when it comes to being in the services, having someone who has been exposed to similar situations & who just 'gets it!' can be a very rare & liberating experience. Accessibility is also important to my clients, not just in terms of physical access to my room, it's also about simplicity of working online, I simply send a link in an email, we connect & that's it
