“ It’s good to talk .... “ Do you need to talk to somebody without being judged or having to justify your feelings. Are feelings of anxiety, fear or depression making everyday life hard to bear. Do you want to understand why you feel or behave the way you do. Then I can help, I am a friendly, approachable psychotherapist and provide confidential therapy in a safe, calm and compassionate environment. I can help you explore your experiences and identify what you would like to change for a happier and more fulfilled life.
I have worked with a range of issues and clients. Frequently my clients have experienced developmental trauma or abuse although they come initially when their life has become a struggle, whether it be due to unhealthy coping stategies, problems in relationships or mental/physical distress. They need to feel that there is someone who will listen and help them with their past and to gain back control over their future. For many clients there is a need to be understood and to have the space to grieve for what they have lost whilst having the opportunity to be able to identify and embrace their true inner self.
If you are feeling overwhelmed with anxiety and stress or having issues in your relationships, daily life can seem very hard. Low mood can make you feel lonely or isolated - perhaps you find yourself putting on a pretence that everything is okay...when the reality is very different. You might be unclear about what is troubling you. As an experienced counsellor, I provide affordable therapy in a confidential and safe environment, helping you make sense of how you’re feeling. Counselling can also give you practical ways of coping; I will work at your pace during sessions so that you feel truly heard and accepted, not judged.
Are you struggling with something difficult in your life and need some support? I offer a space where you can be yourself, supporting you to find new ways to explore what's important. I am passionate about what I do, by the changes in behaviour, insights and new perspectives experienced by my clients. I'm a registered trainee Psychotherapist accredited by the UKCP and registered with the Gender Intelligence Network for Therapists and Counsellors.
I work with people who are feeling stuck and looking for help to move forward. This could be around difficulty dealing with emotions, self-destructive behaviours, self-criticism or feelings of not being good enough. It could be being held back in life by anxiety, distressing thoughts or compulsive behaviours. It could involve uncertainty around questions of self-identity, relationships or life direction, or just a sense that things aren’t right. Whether these issues are recent or more long-standing, change for the better is possible and therapy can help.
As, primarily, a Person-Centred therapist, I understand that each person and counselling relationship is unique. With presence and genuineness, I strive to attune to each individual, wherever they may be in that moment. My professional training and experience serves to support and illuminate the journey we embark on, side by side, and enables me to respond with sensitivity to you as a whole person. Person-Centred Therapy trusts that each person innately possesses the capacity for fulfilment and authenticity when met with the safe yet challenging environment in which to explore and grow.
The reasons we have for seeking therapy are as varied and complex as the people seeking. You may be facing challenges in your life and relationships you wish to overcome. Or want to experience greater creativity, richer relationships, or simply have more ‘good’ days. Within our relationship, I aim to create an environment where you feel comfortable and safe to express, explore and examine your thoughts, feelings, and behaviours both past and present. I am driven to find freedom from the patterns of the past, which existed once to protect us and now may have become self-limiting and even hurtful.
I started my counselling training over 12 years ago and have years of experience working with people who are striving to understand themselves and these complicated lives that we are all living. I will never get over how much courage it takes to reach out for help at a time of crisis and I am always blown away at the strength and resilience of the human mind. I believe that we all have the potential to grow & heal and that counselling works to facilitate this process. Counselling is for everyone. Not just those who may consider themselves to be in an extreme crisis. I treat each client as an individual working with your unique needs
People come to therapy for a variety of different reasons. Some are feeling anxious, stressed or worried about something. Some are feeling upset, distressed, broken hearted or depressed. Others might feel that something has gone wrong in their life, have regrets, feel stuck or have lost direction, meaning in life. Whatever the reason, sometimes we all find ourselves stuck. Sometimes we go around in circles, unable to sort troubles and worries alone. Getting help from a trained and supportive professional is often an important step towards the change.

You may be experiencing depression, anxiety, or feeling confused that life, and relationships aren't turning out how you expected. We all find ourselves repeating unhelpful or painful patterns of behaviour sometimes, and feel unable to change them. In therapy these patterns are uncovered and you can learn how to change them to be a new, healthier and happier you, to enjoy a fuller life and healthier relationships. If you have not had therapy before give it a try. Everyone can benefit from therapy and improve their quality of life so don't hesitate to take the first step
I offer you a warm, compassionate and safe space to explore any difficulties you may be facing.

I provide a space and opportunity to explore your thinking, emotions and behaviour and ways of relating to others and the world.
Life can be hard, and sometimes the struggle to make sense of your feelings can seem overwhelming. This is ok. You may be at a point in your life when you feel stuck, and unable to move on, and don't know what to do. This is absolutely ok. You may feel that your life could improve and that you could live it more fully. Definitely ok. You may have noticed you keep repeating unhelpful behaviour patterns. This is ok, too.
I work with people from all walks and with many issues but all feel a need to change something in their lives. I can create a safe space to explore and understand the problems you bring, both individually or together with partners. I have helped many clients deal with the issues arising from depression, self doubt, anxiety and trauma, or changing notions of self worth, especially in the face of work stress.
