Our assessments go beyond the surface, aiming for a profound understanding of individual experiences and challenges. As a mental health nurse with a commitment to compassionate care, I prioritise creating a safe and supportive space. The assessment process involves detailed conversations where we explore your unique journey with ADHD. Your experiences matter, and we want to understand them thoroughly. Our assessments are not just about ticking boxes. We utilise a variety of evidence-based tools to provide a meticulous evaluation.

I understand that it can be hard to reach out for therapy, especially when you may be finding life tough at the moment. Or perhaps you are in a better place and have decided that you want to explore aspects of your life. Either way, please do contact me to discuss your needs. In therapy sessions I would work with you to process your past so that you can see how it impacts the present. For many there is the need to grieve for what has been lost, whilst giving the opportunity to identify and embrace your true inner self. You would strengthen ‘Adult’ you, freeing yourself to embrace life.

Firstly, I’m so glad you’re taking this step. I know how scary it can feel to reach out when you’re depressed, anxious, traumatised, stressed – or however it is you’re feeling right now. Whether you’re struggling with longstanding circumstances, reeling from a recent event, or you’re confused with your emotions … you’re doing the right thing by seeking help. As a fully qualified counsellor to post-graduate degree level, and a registered member of the BACP, I believe the best therapy is open, honest and human.

I work with couples, and parents who are struggling with the behaviour of their children, particularly aggression or other risky behaviours. I also work with couples who are experiencing significant levels of conflict and harmful or abusive behaviour. Sometimes, my work is with parents who have separated and are trying to work out how to reduce the impact of this separation on their children, or repair or reconstruct relationships that have become strained or distant.

People come for therapy for many different issues. A common theme is that people want to get a greater sense of themselves and understanding of what may have caused their issues and how they might grow past these challenges. Therapy can help you feel better about yourself and improve your mental health.

Are you looking to gain some clarity in life? Are you struggling in relationships or trying to make sense of your past? Perhaps you feel isolated, angry and are missing out on connections with friends and family. This can suffocate the parts of your life which should bring you joy; this unhappiness can lead to further disconnect with those around you.

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.
