I have trained & worked with suicidal clients and also did specialist training in Sexual abuse victim support, trauma and hold a post grad level 7 in attachment.
Sometimes life experiences can become overwhelming and feel too much to cope with. This can lead to us to feeling worthless, vulnerable and isolated. Sometimes we need somebody who will listen to us without judgement to help us work through things to lead to a better understanding of ourselves and our experiences and sometimes just hold our hand whilst we sit in that darkness.

My main areas of specialism are relationship and sexual issues, disordered eating, and recovery from adverse childhood experiences, including sexual abuse .
Sometimes the difficulties you have in the present are influenced by how things have been for you in the past. How you have coped with the tough experiences, the beliefs you have developed about yourself and the world, your habitual responses. You want to improve things for yourself but you can't see a way through. Maybe you have tried other ways of getting better, maybe with some success, but the underlying problems just turn up in different ways. You are here because you know that you are not out of options. Online Psychotherapy has helped many people like you. And with me, you are in a safe pair of hands.

I work in a trauma-informed manner and have specific experience and training in sexual abuse /trauma.
Has a recent or past negative experience left you feeling lost or stuck? Maybe you’ve tried to just get on with life but inside you still feel broken, replaying events in your mind and asking yourself why or how this happened. Perhaps you know what happened to you was traumatic or maybe you’ve told yourself it “wasn’t that bad”. Some days you seem to feel all the emotions all at once, and other days you feel nothing at all. Other people simply don’t understand, leaving you feeling alone and like you don’t matter. Most things in your life, your relationships, work or education might be affected and you long to break free from it all.

Life is a series of changes, often bringing loss and pain but also the seeds of a positive transformation. Even if you're unsure how to move forward, a theme can emerge. Counselling can facilitate a new understanding of ourselves, our different relationships, our place in the world. By reassessing hopes and fears, we can work towards the difference we want to experience. Alongside general counselling, I have specialist experience in post-natal depression and traumatic emotional and sexual abuse . My approach, however, is to treat every person without presumptions, trusting the space that opens up and finding the best way for you.

Are things that have happened in your life preventing you living as you deserve to? Are you struggling with feelings of anxiety, depression, or feeling numb and disconnected from others? Do you find you're reaching for alcohol, drugs, food, damaging relationships to try to feel better? Or did you grow up with a parent struggling in this way? You don't need to have suffered an obvious trauma or adversity to be be feeling fearful, despairing or battling with a low sense of self worth.

It may be that you are impacted by some past or current difficulties, are feeling stuck, unable to move forward, a lack of control over your life, or repeating old patterns. We all can form ways of coping throughout our lives that may have been necessary at the time, but are no longer helpful to us. I believe all people have the capacity to grow and flourish, given the right environment. I offer a confidential and compassionate space for you to talk about things that you are finding difficult, confusing, overwhelming, or simply want to explore further. As a therapist in late stages of training, I offer sessions at a reduced rate.

I believe that relationships are really important. We encounter lots of different relationships over the course of our lives: friends, siblings, parents, bosses, co-workers…and then there’s the relationship we have with ourselves. Our unique life experiences inform our thoughts, feelings and behaviours; and sometimes we can get stuck in outdated patterns. Common mental health conditions such as: depression, anxiety, OCD, phobias, and addiction, are often symptoms of the effects of adverse life experiences. Treating the underlying causes of whichever symptoms are affecting you can dramatically reduce their impact.

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!

It starts with a hello...but I know that starting the conversation can be difficult at times. Life brings its share of challenges but no one needs to suffer in isolation. I am here to walk this journey with you, so you can become a better version of yourself. I am a firm believer that not everyone experiences even the same issue the same way. Therefore, being flexible in dealing with the differing needs of clients, is a necessary skill I have honed over the years.
