Hello, I am a UKCP registered psychotherapist who is available for sessions with young people and adults. I practice using an integrative approach based on the combined principles of psycho-dynamic and person-centred therapies. I believe that the most healing factor in therapy is the therapeutic relationship and I aim to provide a safe environment for someone to explore their emotions and any difficulties that they might be experiencing. My approach is geared to the individual needs of the client, and I am able to facilitate different types of therapy from reflective to creative.

Do you experience feelings of not being enough? Are you struggling to move forward with life as a result of crippling symptoms of anxiety, shame, stress and/or low mood? Feelings of shame and unworthiness are often at the root of most emotional and psychological issues. To feel content and satisfied with life we need to believe that we can be happy and that we deserve to be happy. Therapy can help remove the blocks to wellbeing and support a more contented way of life.

Sex is a natural, normal and enjoyable part of our lives but sometimes it can become something that feels out of control, damaging and destructive. Some people find themselves addicted to porn, watching it for hours every day, and as a result their work and their relationships suffer. Others become addicted to having sex with strangers or with escorts. They may find themselves spending huge amounts of money, putting themselves and their partners at risk of sexually transmitted diseases and damaging their relationships. When sex feels like it has become out of control, then it is time to seek help.

I offer to you, a listening ear, a warm and welcoming presence that will promote an environment which makes you feel comfortable to talk.

There are many reasons why you might be seeking counselling. You might be suffering from anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, feeling isolated, excluded, lonely, overwhelmed, confused or numb. You might be overcome by feelings of loss or bereavement, have social anxiety or are dealing with any number of issues at work, socially or with family. Maybe you have suffered abuse or narcissistic trauma in the past. At times it can be very difficult to see through the fog of thoughts and feelings. I also see clients with the particular challenges associated with neurodivergence which include those with dyslexia, autism and ADHD.

I have always been fascinated by the complexity of human beings, their darkness and their lights. I consider the therapeutic room not only as a space for self-reflection and exploration of what feels difficult to process on your own, but also a place to speak the unspeakable. Therapy can provide an opportunity to challenge behaviours that may appear unchangeable or automatic. As a practitioner I am interested in the integration of cultural and gender studies and have experience working with depression, isolation, sexual identity, existential difficulties, relational dilemmas and bereavement.

Sometimes life can be challenging and we don’t know where to turn. Maybe you and your loved ones are fighting a lot or perhaps not communicating at all? Do you always think the worst about a situation or yourself? Are you comfortable in your own skin? You may want to become more confident or assertive in expressing yourself, saying what you really think without fear. Maybe past events or traumas are preventing you from moving forward and living the happy life that you want. No matter what your situation is, counselling can help create a safe space for you to feel free and help you through even the most difficult of times.
