Hello, I understand that taking the first step towards seeking therapy can be daunting, but please know that it's also a courageous and empowering decision. Whether you're navigating a specific challenge or seeking profound, long-term change, the decision to talk is a transformative experience. My approach as a therapist is rooted in compassion, empathy, and empowerment. I believe in equipping you with the skills to find a profound sense of inner balance, tapping into the rich resources within you—body, spirit, mind, and emotion.

When someone you care about has a drug or alcohol problem, or has done in the past, it’s natural to experience a range of difficult thoughts and feelings such as stress, anxiety, anger or guilt. Do you worry about your loved one’s drinking or drug use so much that you can't focus on anything else? Do you feel responsible for your loved one’s behaviour or that you haven't done a good enough job at helping them to quit? Or perhaps you feel sad, angry, hurt or let down by the person in your life who is or has been drinking or taking drugs. Are you finding these feelings overwhelming and difficult to cope with? You're not alone!

In some moments in our lives, we need professional help when we can’t deal with difficult feelings alone. In these situations, it doesn’t matter if you are not feeling ready to start therapy. The most important thing is to be with someone you feel comfortable enough to express your concerns and feelings.​ I am here to work with you regardless of your emotional difficulties. I specialise in working with various emotional issues as well as considering how various elements, such as race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, class, culture, nationality, disability, religion, age and others, can affect a person’s wellbeing.

Many people come to therapy feeling low, anxious or lost, and I offer a space to explore those experiences and identify opportunities for doing things differently. I welcome people from all backgrounds and experiences, and usually start by working with you to understand who you are and what is important to you. I draw on a range of approaches (e.g. narrative therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy, and compassion focused approaches), with a particular focus on values and identity. I am experienced in supporting adults of all ages with a range of issues, such as low mood, stress, anxiety and shame.

I aim to offer a non judgemental relationship where you can explore issues and problems that might be holding you back or causing you distress. This can cover a range of things such as; relationship breakdown, burn out, addiction, stress, anxiety, faith, abuse, trauma or bereavement. I will support you in weekly sessions working together on a focus you have chosen. If you feel stuck or like you keep on making the same mistakes in life I can help you to discover why this is happening and help you find freedom from things that might be hindering your own growth.

My approach is both integrative and existential. I acknowledge what it means to be human and the inevitable difficulties and discomforts. I work with clients on how, despite these, we may carve out our unique paths to deeper personal meaning, purpose, acceptance and peace. It is my belief that there is the ability within all of us to identify and to transcend our childhood and societal conditioning and patterns. These hold us back from more joy, ease, and inspiration. My aim is support my clients in becoming more familiar with the wise, mature and grounded parts of themselves rather than being ruled by the reactive inner child.

Anxiety around intimacy, relationships, or sexual concerns is incredibly common, and the overarching impact that these issues can have on your health and happiness is often underestimated and undervalued. Forming meaningful and honest connections with people including yourself, and feeling empowered to truly accept and project how you feel - good and bad - is challenging with sex and relationships being no exception. Shedding light on the unconscious and bringing new perspectives to your world can be the seed from which healing and personal development grow.
