I work with clients who experience a range of psychological difficulties including depression, anxiety, social anxiety, addictions, trauma, relationship difficulties, OCD, body dysmorphia, and personality disorders. Sometimes clients may need a limited number of sessions for a specific difficulty, at other times longer-term work may be more appropriate. My aim is to create a safe, non-judgemental environment in which difficulties may be constructively understood, and appropriate strategies can be applied to address them.
Sometimes it's hard to know what to do with our difficult thoughts and feelings and this is when counselling can help. I'm an experienced counsellor and psychotherapist working with couples, adults, young people and children. In a safe and confidential space, both EMDR therapy and counselling offer you the chance to feel accepted and understood. Feeling supported to think and talk about what is going on for you is the first step to being able to move forward. Counselling means that you do not have to work it all out on your own. I will be there to support, guide and help you.
I have an MA in Integrative Child Psychotherapy and an Accredited Memeber of UKCP, and Accredited Certificate in Body-Oriented Coaching accredited by ICF. I also incorporate the creative expressive arts in processing experiences. Since 2004 I have a variety of experiences in educational and private settings. Some of the areas of my experience has been working with children and young people affected by divorce, loss, bereavement, insecure attachment, trauma, domestic abuse and issues such as self-harm, emotional dysregulation, anxiety, low self-esteem, low mood, hypervigilance, anger and influencers in cognitive processes.
Are you left feeling sad because you are stuck in arguments that go round and round in circles? Are you mystified why a harmless conversation can turn unpleasant for no apparent reason? Do you believe that you're trying to make relationship work while your partner, family member or friend seems hellbent on ruining it? Or perhaps your relationship has ended and you cannot work out why? You maybe burdened with depression, a serious illness or a long term health condition and feel that you have lost sight of your wishes, hopes and dreams?
The only journey is the one within (Rainer Maria Rilke). Every one of us has the capacity to live a more fulfilling life and to have close relationships in which we can accept ourselves, others and the circumstances of our lives. As a psychodynamic psychotherapist I am willing to work with you for as long as you need. I have experience working with a variety of issues including generalised anxiety, health anxiety, relationship issues, couples work including supporting couples or individuals through separation and divorce, addiction, depression, bereavement, narcissistic abuse, domestic and sexual abuse (male or female).
I specialise in working with Anxiety, Depression, survivors and victims of Narcissistic relationships and Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) otherwise known as Emotionally Unstable Personality Disorder (EUPD).
Psychotherapy for Soul with Individuals and Couples: At the heart of Psychotherapy for Soul is the personal, professional, confidential, therapeutic relationship between us, client and therapist. My role is to provide a safe environment where you can explore your life experience, the issues troubling you, and your values and goals for a fulfilling future. Psychotherapy for Soul is about: Evolving as a human being; expanding our Soul, which means our lived experience of being who we are; hence, living a life ever more fruitful, more abundant, with more meaning, more fulfilled, and with more zest for life.
During this time of Covid 19 I will be holding sessions online or by phone. I offer you a warm friendly and confidential space where you can talk about what ever is worrying you. My interactive approach is tailored to you and your needs. You are an individual and I will help you to access your own inner process. We all experience difficult times in our lives, for some it can be an event, a crisis, for others life can feel like an ongoing struggle of hopelessness and no meaning.
The fact you are here suggests that you are considering therapy. For this, I applaud you. Therapy is not easy. It's an incredibly brave, life changing step towards fully knowing and understanding yourself. And it is some of the most meaningful and life changing work you'll ever do for yourself. I work with adults in my private practice or online. I blend several therapeutic modalities to suit you the individual.
I am an experienced music psychotherapist, who has been privileged to work with children, young adults and older adults, with a range of diagnoses. During this time I am working remotely from home. Therefore, please get in touch if you would like online therapy sessions.
I help people to feel more OK through online therapy. I work with them to change things about themselves, their lives or their relationships or simply to understand themselves better. I work with people who are living with difficult experiences or situations and want to uncover the inner resources and resilience to do this. Maybe you would like to learn how to live with the past, no matter what that was and to feel more confident that you can live your life in the right way for you? Maybe I can help.
I am a fully qualified, experienced RELATE counsellor offering a confidential, caring and friendly service for adults facing a range of difficulties and emotional problems. Reaching out and asking for help can be daunting, admitting that sometimes we cannot manage our problems on our own can be the first step to bringing about changes within our lives. I offer a non-judgemental and understanding environment to help you through challenging times.
If you find yourself struggling to cope or make sense of an emotional difficulty please give me a call to discuss how I might best support you. It can sometimes be hard to reach out for help but I often find once the initial contact has been made clients often comment they wish they had acted sooner.
Do you ever feel like your life is out of balance for some reason? Have you lost yourself in your busy life of putting everyone else first or is work taking over? Perhaps your greatest desire is to have a baby but it's just not happening or if you are pregnant, has it proved a mixed bag of emotions? Maybe the birth wasn't as expected and you're left feeling guilty, angry or frustrated. And if you're coming to the end of your reproductive journey, have the symptoms of the menopause come as an unwelcome surprise?
Valuing the importance of a therapeutic relationship, I base my relationships with clients on trust and partnership. Drawing on extensive experience I aim to provide a safe and non- judgmental environment where you the client feels acknowledged, listened to and supported. As we are all unique no one type of therapy 'fits' all and I therefore integrate the therapeutic models in which I have been trained to meet your particular individual needs.
A confidential, non-judgmental space where you can explore positive and challenging aspects of your life and any change you wish to explore or make. I have personal experience in sexual, physical, emotional and mental abuse; divorce; living with a Narcissist; step-parenting and living in an Ex-pat community. The approaches I predominantly use are Solution Focused, Bowenian Systemic approach, Brainspotting or Equine Facilitated Psychotherapy (EFP). All approaches work with clients, though I have found 'Walk and Talk' or EFP best for adolescents or those suffering with PTSD or Trauma, along with Brainspotting.
