I have extensive experience in private practice working with family /partner dynamics, difference, belonging, identity, cultural issues and inter-generational trauma and understanding how these issues can affect people in the course of their everyday life.
Life can be challenging sometimes and you may feel overwhelmed by difficult feelings or behaviours. Sometimes you may simply want to understand yourself better, realise your potential or improve your relationships. I am a professionally qualified and registered Psychotherapist. Psychotherapy aims to help you overcome obstacles to make sense of your internal world and feel understood and supported. It could help you to achieve lasting and fulfilling change in relationships with others but also your most important relationship, the one you have with yourself.

Maybe you feel as though you are negotiating between intersecting parts of yourself such as your mind, body, heart and soul and you’re finding it difficult to find a balance that feels sincere to you. Perhaps this back and forth is affecting how you behave with your family , friends or partner and you’re finding it difficult to cope. You want to live a life where you can integrate more aspects of yourself and feel more whole, to hear and trust yourself, without fear of feeling shame, feeling seen or even feeling truly known by those who matter most to you. I work with a network of qualified and experienced therapists at Therapy & Me.

Does it feel like things are getting too difficult for you? I want to offer you a safe environment in which to explore without fear any issues, problems or challenges that are causing you distress. I believe that when you are truly listened to in a confidential and non-judgemental way you can work through the difficulties gaining an invaluable insight into yourself building the resources you need for the future. Together we can explore what is going on for you, how present circumstances are preventing you from breaking the cycle. I have experience working with anxiety, panic attacks, depression, family issues, and emotional abuse.

Psychotherapy and counselling can help you to gently gain a new perspective on your relationships, without judgement, in a confidential space. Although relational patterns may have served you well in the past, perhaps you feel they are not helpful to you any longer. You may feel that things are just not working out, without ever really understanding why. Perhaps you keep choosing particular people as friends or partners that you know are not healthy but can't resist anyway. Perhaps this makes you feel anxious, depressed or you can't sleep at night and well meaning advice from friends of family doesn't seem to help.

You feel stuck and unsure about the way ahead. You experience overwhelming feelings when you need to take a decision. Your sleep is disturbed or you fall asleep when awake. You burst into tears too quickly or too slowly. You experience relational challenges with your family /friends or at work. You desire to talk about yourself to better understand who you want /don’t want to be. This list is endless as varied are the reasons leading people to therapy. My priority is to listen to clients, to meet them in their life journey. We define together the steps ahead so that I can support them in finding what they want from therapy.

Taking the first step in seeking therapy can be challenging, stressful, and overwhelming. Well done for looking after your needs. In therapy, we will develop the curiosity and awareness needed to guide you toward the solutions you already have within yourself. You are the expert on your life, and we will collaboratively identify and work through the changes needed to live a life that is meaningful and congruent with your values. The early experiences you had with family , different institutions, culture, and/or religion, will be explored, along with their effects on your life.

I am highly experienced and also support individuals living with depression, autism, family support, education, sight loss, diversity and difference challenges.
Abuse begins when someone who you are supposed to be able to trust begins to manipulate you, to accept mistreatment or their warped version of 'love'. I know the hurt you are experiencing and it has probably left you feeling confused, unsure of what "really" happened and this is a perfectly normal trauma response. You may be experiencing feelings of isolation and stress, self-doubt, low confidence. It may already be making it difficult for you to form relationships or causing relationship breakdown and psychical illnesses. This can happen several years after the incident. Let's have a conversation and change that!

My approach is client-centred and holistic, blending psychological approaches (Psychodynamic, Existential and Internal Family Systems) tailored to each person as an individual soul with a unique life and specific needs.
I help creatives and professionals struggling with career and self-esteem related issues. Low confidence, imposter syndrome or self-sabotage, for example, can manifest in behaviours such as workaholism and burnout or conversely procrastination and under-achievement. I’m familiar with these issues helping clients work through and overcome them.

Like all integrative counsellors, I work with a diverse range of issues including anxiety, stress, low self-esteem, depression, relationship difficulties, family issues, bereavement and loss, identity issues, anxiety, loneliness, work issues and childhood abuse.
We all face times when life feels overwhelming and we can't seem to find a way forward. You may be feeling anxious or depressed, you may be experiencing relationship difficulties or feel stuck in unhelpful patterns from the past. As an integrative counsellor, I offer a warm and safe space where you can speak freely about whatever is troubling you. Developing a supportive therapeutic relationship with my clients is at the heart of my work. I believe it's the relationships we forge in life that allow us to grow. I also believe that, however great the challenges we face, we all have it within us to change our experience.

I'm an integrative counsellor working both online and in-person with individuals and couples. In addition to helping my clients with various mental and emotional challenges, I have a special interest in working with anxiety, depression, low self-esteem and relationship issues. You may be experiencing relationship problems - with a partner, family and friends or colleagues and wondering why particular patterns keep occurring. Perhaps you are struggling with low self-worth, or that negative voice within you has become so loud that you are finding it difficult to relate to others and the world around you.

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.
