Life is difficult. Every day you face a thousand intangible threats to your mental well-being and self-esteem. Your brain reacts, creating a collection of sensations which we call anxiety. Sometimes you feel hopeless-there's no way out of trouble and you feel yourself becoming more withdrawn, isolated and depressed. Or, perhaps living with the person you love is impossible. Talking things over with family or friends can help. But you may have reasons why that's not appropriate or you need specific specialist help. Then is the time to speak with an impartial, trained, professional, in confidence.

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.

Is anxiety or excessive worry getting in the way for your? Are you stuck in a pattern of negative thinking? Or are you finding it hard to live with a traumatic event? Difficult thoughts and emotions can be overwhelming. This suggests you would benefit from structured therapy to learn some new ways of coping.

Life can be difficult for all of us at times and counselling can help. So, whatever you’re feeling, whether overwhelmed, low or anxious, experiencing relationship or family difficulties, finding work stressful, feeling lonely, have lost someone you love, are facing health challenges, or troubled by past experiences, finding a counsellor who cares and understands can be life changing. I'm a compassionate and supportive therapist, who really listens without judging or telling you what to do - this will be different from talking to family, a friend or yourself, and, I hope, could be the start of life feeling better for you.

Life can feel overwhelming at times and the counselling service I offer aims to give you a safe and secure environment to unpack your feelings. I know it can be difficult to begin to talk about emotional topics and sometimes it helps to talk to someone outside of your immediate support network in a space without judgement. You can reach out even if you’ve never been able to speak to anyone about how you are feeling before or if you aren’t sure if your problems are complex enough for therapy. I work within a person-centred approach, allowing you to lead with the issues you would like to bring to sessions

Are you feeling anxious in social situations? Do you find it hard to stop or control worry? Are you feeling low and stuck in a rut? Or experiencing low self-esteem? Perhaps you’re having panic attacks or intrusive thoughts that are worrying you. Maybe you have experienced a trauma that you’re struggling to process or a phobia you want to overcome. These common difficulties can impact on your enjoyment and achievements in life; leading to patterns of avoidance, procrastinating or a need to be in control.

I have over 19 years experience working with people - My clients come to me, when they feel overwhelmed, exhausted and in need of support - they can't manage their thoughts, relationships, behaviours alone any longer and they need someone to talk to in a confidential, non-judgmental way. Together we explore, unpick, understand and make changes, so that life can become more manageable, enjoyable and less exhausting. For me, each of my clients are individuals, and its about getting the right balance - seeing what works and what doesn't work for them, promoting change together.

Are you fed up of feeling like you never fit in? Maybe you're tired of masking your true self through fear of other people's judgements, criticisms or rejection? These are experiences I hear from clients so frequently. I work with people that want to find ways to live more authentically, to be more comfortable in expressing their true selves. I support clients to uncover their natural ways of being, to unmask and find ways to express their true emotions. I have a passion and a wealth of knowledge (professionally and personally) of supporting neurodiverse clients (predominantly, though not exclusively clients with autism and ADHD).

I am flexible and transparent in my approach, and adapt cognitive behavioural therapy to suit the needs of you. My role would be to develop a shared understanding of any difficulties by completing an in-depth assessment and formulation, to work together to manage these difficulties.

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.

I like working with individuals and couples – on issues and worries ranging from anxiety, stress, and depression to all types of trauma. Of particular interest is working with people experiencing existential angst or simply feeling "stuck" in one way or another. I like to help people to get "un-stuck" and to take steps towards living their lives in more fulfilling ways, and having healthier, more rewarding relationships.
