Personal challenges occur through every stage of life, and they can be difficult to manage alone. In fact, our emotions can lead us to push others away, and isolate ourselves when we may be most in need. Tuning in to how we feel and asking for support is an important first step, and through an initial session we can understand your feelings and perspective and think together about a way forward; importantly this can be your opportunity to see if I am the right ‘fit’ for you. I seek to create a safe and confidential space, developing a trusting relationship so that together we can approach and reach your goals.
Asking for help is not easy, especially if you find difficult to talk about things that upset you. Have you been thinking to try counselling but postponing making that call? Finding hard to reach out for help? Going through a challenging time in your relationships or feeling anxious, under the weather, worried for the future? If any of the above resonates and you would like to talk but finding it difficult to take that first step while wondering how therapy could help you, if at all, know that you don't have to do it all on your own. Please contact me by email for any enquiries.

Sometimes you want to be heard, truly heard. To have someone to talk to about whatever is on your mind, to be listened to without being judged or told what to do. If you are feeling unheard, anxious, upset or overwhelmed, I am here to listen and help you to explore your feelings, to better understand them and feel more in control. I offer a safe and confidential space where we can explore whatever is troubling you. By exploring your thoughts and feelings, both past and present, I can help you to better understand yourself and to accept and let go of what has been weighing you down, to allow you to move forward.
I offer both in-person and online therapy. I have over ten years’ experience working in the mental health sector, helping people overcome and manage their difficulties, be it in their personal or professional lives. I specialise in working with anxiety, depression, OCD, bereavement, health difficulties, and relationship counselling. I work with both adults and young people and can incorporate a number of different therapeutic approaches, including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, systemic therapy, Acceptance and Commitment therapy, schema therapy, and compassion focused therapy.
Sometimes coping with life can become problematic because situations may lead us along a difficult pathway. We may try to understand our own behaviours, thoughts and emotions and those of others, but coping may not be easy. I regard each person as an individual in their own right, so my practice aims to suit diverse clients' needs. I bring together a variety of techniques to support people with a range of issues.
Therapy can be more than just a space to discuss difficulties, it can be a place of learning, healing, playing and growing. It can be a place where you can process the past, so that you're able to move forward into the life that you want to create for yourself.
You may be struggling with low mood or anxiety, difficulties in relationships or with the challenges of everyday life. It may be that you have lost someone close to you or have a history of traumatic life events. Whatever brings you to therapy, the first step can be daunting. But, by reaching out, you can begin to make more sense of your experiences and, with support, work towards a better future. As a psychodynamic psychotherapist specialising in work with teenagers and young adults, I have worked with many young people with a range of emotional and mental health issues.
Many people now have therapy, for different reasons and from a range of backgrounds. You might be feeling overwhelmed and not wanting to handle difficulties without support anymore; or be feeling confused, conflicted and just need help to understand things more clearly. Therapy provides a safe, confidential and consistent space to start exploring some of the things about ourselves that can be difficult to understand. Being heard properly for the first time can often be an important first step in the process. People come with depression, anxiety, family issues, relationship dynamics or sense of being lost and wanting to find a way.
Anxiety and panic attacks; depression or trauma, loss and bereavement; relationship issues and life transitions - we can all face difficulties in our lives. These difficulties can feel painful and often insurmountable. I offer a safe and accepting environment in which you can explore your thoughts and express your feelings without judgement. As we understand and make sense of the difficulties and issues you face, we can open up choices and greater freedom. With choices, change becomes possible and, with it, the opportunity to live a more fulfilling and joyful life. I also work with EMDR to help resolve PTSD, trauma and anxieties.
From my experience as a counsellor, I have learned that every client faces their own unique challenges and I believe taking a personalised approach is the best way to overcome these obstacIes.

I am a professionally qualified counsellor, certified NLP practitioner and a Registered Member of the BACP. I have also completed certifications from the Tavistock Relationships Centre and the National Centre for Eating Disorders.

I see individual and couple clients with a wide range of issues. They include problems within relationships, parenting issues, bereavement, stress at work, low self-confidence and more. Often a client might feel a loss of hope and meaning in their life; they might have problems regulating their moods or coming to terms with aspects of themselves and decisions they have made. By coming into therapy, they seek to build a trusting relationship in which they open up, explore, let go of difficult emotions and complex thinking and beliefs.

These feelings may have been apparent beforehand and now feel more intense.
