Understanding Autism - Cert.
There are many reasons why people choose to come to therapy. For some, it can be a sense of discomfort, an internal struggle or perhaps an external trigger has pushed you towards seeking support. Therapy can be an empowering process, supporting you to reconnect with yourself, to notice & take care of your needs, bringing you self awareness, healing & a deeper sense of security. I work to provide clients with a safe & attuned therapeutic experience. This gives you the space to look at old patterns of behaviour that are no longer serving you, supporting you to make healthier changes, moving you forward into a place of authenticity.

Therapy can be a powerful way of making life more manageable and can even make it more enjoyable. You might be having a really hard time - perhaps you're feeling confused, lost, or lonely. Maybe you are going through difficulties in your relationships. Another reason people come to therapy is to address how the past might be affecting them in the present. You may want to understand yourself more deeply. I offer a supportive space for you to explore what you need to. I work in a safe, and trauma informed way. Therapy can be a place to talk about things you may have never shared about before.

Are you your own worse critic? Do you take better care of others than you do yourself? Do you feel that people don't really know the "real" you? And if they did know the real you, they wouldn't like you? Do you keep finding yourself in relationships that feel toxic? Do you feel deep down that there is something not quite right? Do you worry that you are too much for other people? Or that others can't be trusted? Do you wish for a time when you could feel happy and content and relaxed with just being yourself? I can help you feel more compassionate towards yourself so that you stop giving yourself such a hard time and enjoy life more

I like to describe the process of therapy to clients as the unpacking and re-packing of a messy suitcase. There may be things in there that have been actively avoided and possibly some things that have been forgotten about altogether. Through gentle and curious exploration, the suitcase is opened; things are taken out and safely examined. Coming face to face with that which has caused pain can be frightening but it needn't be done alone. The re-packing of the suitcase allows for the healing and acceptance of that which has been pushed away from the mind but is still stored in the body. Things will start to feel lighter and clearer.

Whatever you’re going through, you’ve arrived here because you are looking for something in your life to be different. This could be the way you perceive yourself, your relationships with others, or your world. It can be difficult to know where to turn in times like this and sometimes you can feel very alone with your own experiences, struggling to open up to those around you for fear of being burdensome, not understood or accepted. Believing that each person can be empowered to find their own answers, we’ll work as a team to facilitate insight, as well as to discover solutions to problems.

I’m experienced in adapting therapy for clients who have dyslexia, ADD and autism .
Choosing a professional to help you with your struggles can be a stressful process. Many people have heard of Cognitive Behaviour Therapy but aren’t sure what it involves, and don’t know whether they need CBT, counselling or something else. That’s not a problem - I will provide an initial phone call to answer questions, listen to your concerns and discuss with you what you are looking for. My first session by video call involves an assessment of your current difficulties from the perspective of a trained mental health professional, and working with you to establish whether CBT or counselling would be most beneficial for you.

I’ve worked with people with dementia, learning disabilities or autism for over 30 years.
The pandemic and lockdown saw a dramatic increase in social isolation and loneliness, but it also saw an increase in people reaching out for help from counselling and psychotherapy. As a joint-qualified counsellor and social worker, I have seen this change first-hand. It’s okay to recognise that you are feeling overwhelmed and need help; it’s okay to realise that you are stuck in a pattern of behaviour that you know is doing you no good; it’s okay to recognise that there’s something in your life that you want to change. As a Person-Centred therapist, my job is to work with you to create a space from which change is possible.

Do your suffer with anxiety and do you want help, then I am able to help with this. Anxiety can plague you throughout your life. If this describes you then I can help you understand the reasons why. Have you engaged in therapy before and nothing seems to work, then I can help you understand why. Do you struggle to regulate your emotions and you do not understand why, then therapy can help you explore why you have unhelpful patterns of behaviour. This may relate to early life experiences.

Do you feel impacted by difficult life problems as a result of coping with traumatic experiences, managing depression/anxiety or dealing with difficult emotions? Many people find it easier to talk to someone who they see as being separate or an "outsider" to their life rather than friends or family. I can help you make sense of events (past and ongoing) in your life and resolve complicated feelings linked to these. However, you don't have to be at crisis point or feel unwell to have counselling! Therapy can be used to better understanding of yourself, working to change things you want, increasing your self-esteem and for self-care.
