Many people find it helpful when faced with difficult stages in their normal life cycle such as career changes, loss and bereavement or crisis points in relationships.
With my brother diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia nearly 30 years ago, I have personal experience of the family sacrifices and struggles related to the pain and stigma of mental illness. Having since, committing my life to the improvement of people’s emotional fitness and mental resilience, with support from organisations such as SANE and MIND, my own journey has allowed me to discover the true benefits of therapy first-hand. Personal therapy is proving invaluable for people to manage certain difficult or crisis situations in their lives and so transform their problems into major opportunities for personal growth.

I am passionate about the work that I do and I can say with absolute conviction that I love my job.
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.

My job is to walk alongside you and to help you with tools and strategies to lead the life you want to.
You might find yourself here because you are dealing with an issue that feels overwhelming or you might want to take some time and space to talk about something that has been bothering you for a while. Counselling offers a safe, non-judgemental and confidential space to explore things. Counselling works, not by fixing people, but by supporting you through your own truths and aiding you to trust and understand yourself. It is an entirely safe space where you can truly be listened to and understood without any judgement by someone not involved in your every day life.

Some people choose to address specific areas (assertiveness, anger, relationship difficulties, career issues, bereavement etc) Also, I provide therapy services tailored to individuals across the neurodiversity spectrum.
We are told how important exercise is for our physical well-being, your mental health is no different. Mental health and physical health are interconnected. Stress, anxiety, and depression can manifest as physical symptoms. So, maintaining good mental health can positively influence physical health. Therapy changes lives and for that reason, if you are unhappy, stressed, and not sure what to do, you need to remember that life is short, and you deserve to live the life you want. Put yourself first and do what makes you happy! I will help you become your own therapist, providing you with healthy tools and support tailored for you.

You can be comfortable to bring any difficulties and unspoken thoughts and feelings to me, and we together find out 'the why(s)' in your life, relationships and in you.

We walk together to put listening, understanding and compassion first, before taking changes which are manageable, realistic and sustainable.

Choosing a therapist can be a tricky task, there are just so many! Perhaps taking a moment to pause and check inwardly for a 'felt sense' about a potential match may help you decide. This experiential practice is known as 'focusing'. I frequently invite my clients to pause and check for a bodily felt sense as I believe talking about a problem is not always enough. My approach to psychotherapy is integrative, drawing on humanistic, cognitive (CBT) and Internal Family Systems Therapy (IFS). I am also currently training in EMDR therapy.
