Many of us begin therapy when we realise we need to change something, heal from something or understand ourselves better. There could be something you know is hurting, you might feel burnt out, overwhelmed, or feeling stuck and dissatisfied with life. Therapy can help you reach a clearer understanding of yourself and gives you a safer space to discover and develop more satisfying ways of living. In therapy we can explore, together, where you’ve been, where you are right now, and where you hope to get to. Therapy can help you get back in touch with yourself, find your voice and make sense of challenging emotions.

You’ve landed on this page for a reason. Maybe you’re tired from always putting others first but feel selfish for caring about yourself. Maybe you’re feeling too anxious to even be around other people and are spending a lot of time with your thoughts. Maybe you want to escape or block out your thoughts altogether because they feel too scary to be with.  Whatever the reason is, you know that something doesn’t feel right and you can’t carry on doing it alone.

I am a clinical psychologist specialising in perinatal and parent infant mental health. My focus is supporting parents during pregnancy and the early years of their child's life. Becoming a parent is often the biggest transition of our lives and many parents find it is not what they expected it to be. In therapy we can work together to make sense of this experience, which can help you to overcome difficulties and move forward. I also offer supervision to health professionals working in perinatal and parent infant services (including psychologists, midwives and health visitors).

At this point in your life when you are looking for therapy, you may have a hunch that the burden you carry has grown too much to hold on your own and somebody needs to hear you out. Many conversations heal, but the difference between a psychologist and a friend is that looking at things with the tools and theories we have at our disposal can help you define the problem, perhaps reframe it and then resolve it. That is the starting point for feeling better. You may wonder whether anything can really help, because everything may seem complicated and deep, but the wonder of your own self is waiting for you to unfold.

Sometimes life throws us challenges both through past and present experiences, which knock us off our feet and we become engulfed in uncertainty, worry and fear. It could be that we start to doubt ourselves and feel that we are not good enough or we are unable to cope, leading to anxiety and depression. Whatever you are going through, it deserves care, attention and compassion and I believe that you have the inner wisdom to work through these issues as you are the person that knows yourself better than anyone,

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.
