If you feel low, stressed, lost, misunderstood, confused, vulnerable or just stuck, I can offer a safe space for you to talk about the things that are bothering you. I'll provide a space that offers non-judgement and empathy whilst you tell me what's going on for you right now. We'll discuss what you would like to get out of therapy or if you have any specific goals you would like to work towards. The amount of sessions you have will always be your choice. I can help by reflecting back to you any themes, patterns or behaviours that come up in our sessions to help you gain the understanding you may be looking for.

Life is a journey and one which can often be challenging to navigate through. It's filled with transitions, hardships and unexpected ups and downs. Sometimes you may find the distress, pain or isolation too intense to face alone, creating uncertainty in your path. When the destination feels unreachable, your journey can appear stagnant. The feeling of being stuck, and unable to move forward may be prevalent, a lonely feeling we all often find ourselves in from time to time.

At any stage in life, we can experience changes or moments where it becomes difficult to cope with our thoughts and feelings. This can result in feeling stuck and not knowing how to process what we're experiencing. What can make this more difficult is knowing who or how to open up to others or feeling like what you're experiencing is too much for someone to understand. Having a therapist allows you to share all parts of you, parts that are accepted wholeheartedly without shame or judgement, which may not feel possible even with those you feel closest to.

Lets be honest, finding the right counsellor can feel very daunting, especially with so many profiles to read so I'll try to keep it simple. I provide a confidential, non-judgmental, safe space where you can feel comfortable opening up about your inner most thoughts and feelings. We can explore things like your relationships, your history and childhood, bereavements, the impact of the pandemic on you or anything that you feel you need to gain clarity on or offload. The sessions are yours to use however you feel is needed and I will be there to support and encourage you on your journey. It's an hour to focus on you!

If you're tired of battling stress, overwhelm, anxiety or if you're frustrated because you can't seem to be as productive or confident as you want, or need, to be then hypnotherapy can work amazingly well for you. Your subconscious is in the driving seat and while it tries to help you feel safe and survive, it can also hinder you too. Often we aren't entirely aware, at a conscious level, why we're struggling or stuck in self-sabotaging behaviour patterns. Hypnotherapy is able to reach your subconscious and work with it to correct course, allowing you to achieve what you want.

Although I regularly work with clients of all ages and genders, the majority of my clients tend to be young men, who have unresolved feelings or experiences which are impacting on their daily lives. I work as an integrative counsellor, from a person-centred perspective. This means that you can bring whatever you wish to the session, while we work at your pace and depth. I employ theory and techniques from CBT, psychodynamic and other therapeutic philosophies which I feel may be useful. Where we start is not the important thing as ultimately, you will naturally discover the things that matter the most to you.
