I am committed to working with clients who are struggling with their emotional wellbeing. These difficulties can cause difficulties in relationships, at work and on a person's experiences of connecting with themselves and the world around them. I work sensitively and supportively with clients who have experienced a number of difficult life experiences including grief, trauma, relationship difficulties to name but a few. I can help you to feel like you develop a better more compassionate understanding of yourself and help you to feel like you are moving forward in life rather than feeling stuck and directionless.

It's not always easy to reach out and ask for support. We often feel that we can manage on our own or don't want to bother anyone with our thoughts and feelings. It can be hard to find a balance between work, relationships, family & other commitments to prioritise yourself. No matter what brings you to therapy the most important part is the relationship we will share. I aim to ensure you feel heard & give you a space to work through anything you want to bring to help you have a greater insight & self-awareness and I will walk alongside you on this journey. Counselling isn't a one size fits all package it's as individual as you are.

There maybe times in our life where we need a safe, supportive environment so that we can explore our troubles and feelings without fear of judgement. Having a listening ear and being truly heard can really help us to get a better understanding of these troubles and aid us to develop ways to move forward in our lives. Sometimes having a confidential space to do this with someone who is independent of the situation is all that's needed. It takes courage to talk to a Counsellor but the rewards are usually worth it. www.htcounselling.co.uk

Life can feel overwhelming and too much, and you want help. You might be struggling with anxiety, depression, a bereavement, low self-esteem, family issues, or many other problems. I have seen time and again that counselling can be an excellent tool in maintaining and improving your mental health. Many of my clients attest to feeling different after our sessions. Such as a sense of feeling calmer even after an introductory call, or first session. Some clients have found they sleep better after a few sessions, or have reduced panic attacks. Some clients spiral less, feel more in control of their life or may feel more confident.

I think sometimes we just reach that place in life when we say 'enough is enough'. For some it can mean it is time to stop and face something, and to someone else it can mean it is maybe time to 'let it go'. There's no end to the potential meanings for reaching 'that point'. i think we've all been there at some stage or another. Does this sound familiar ? That's okay, i totally understand where you're coming from. What is important is acknowledging that you have had the energy and motivation to seek someone to support you through this - it takes courage and strength to take this step. Well done!

Let’s face it, life can be hard. To tackle the challenges we endure day-to-day, it’s essential to build a good psychological foundation and increase our fortitude. Without a balanced lifestyle our bodies and minds become less resilient. Are you struggling to move forward? My life philosophy is simple – be consistent and things will change for you. Work with me if you want to create healthier habits/behaviours and relinquish old beliefs that have weighed you down.

We all experience difficult times in our lives, suffering anxiety, depression, stress, anger, relationship issues, grief, bereavement, physical illness, emotional/physical abuse, low mood, and low motivation, to name just a few of the reasons people come to therapy. At times we will feel like we don’t want to ‘burden’ people with how we feel so we try to push through and carry on, we try to pretend all is ok, we try and cope by putting on a smile and a brave face, often we simply find we are unable to move forward and feel stuck.

You may or may not know in advance what the source of your difficulties may be. Part of our process is to explore together what has led you here. Every person is different. Amid the stresses of daily life, it’s easy to lose touch with our own deepest needs and feelings – until they become too painful or persistent to ignore.

I believe everyone has the right to feel safe, heard and respected in life and in the therapy room. Knowing what is best for our mental health is often overwhelming, I am here to help you find a way through what can seem an insurmountable task. Many reasons make people want to see a counsellor. Sometimes this might be something concrete; the loss of a loved one or having endured a time of great personal stress. Your concerns might be more vague; a sense of disconnection or unhappiness in life with no easily recognisable cause.
