Thank you for taking time to read about the services I offer in my practice. With my focus on both Individual and Couples Counselling (any relationship between 2 people that focuses on relational dynamics eg: marital, family dynamics) there are many areas I maybe able to help. If seeking personal counselling, you may be experiencing life events such as Bereavement and Loss, Cycles of addiction/abuse, Anger, Loss of identity. Couples Counselling can help if you are at an in-pass? Something you just can’t move past? Break down of trust? Or do you need to make an impossible compromise of a big life-changing decision?

I offer a caring and non-judgmental relationship in which you can explore the issues, experiences, thoughts and feelings that have brought you to seek help. We will explore the situations and challenges you are facing in your life. Speaking about what is difficult is the beginning of feeling better. Core Process Psychotherapy combines the wisdom and compassion of Buddhism with western approaches to psychology. This compassionate and relational approach emphasises our wholeness, and our inherent resilience and balance - however hidden these qualities may sometimes seem. I work with both individuals and couples.

Issues: Relationship, Anxiety, low mood, depression, suicidality, self-harm, self-esteem, spirituality.
When you make the decision to talk to a total stranger about your difficulties, it can sometimes provoke anxiety. However, as your therapist, my goal is to not make you feel judged, by providing a safe, confidential space for you to express those difficult feelings that you may never have been able to do. My aim is for you to feel connected with aspects of your self, which might make you feel more able to explore more complex issues of your life experience, so that you can make better sense of your world and your way of being and interacting with the connections you make within that world.

Going to therapy (sometimes known as counselling or psychotherapy) can often feel like a daunting task and finding the courage to take those initial steps can be difficult. You may already feel overwhelmed whilst searching for a therapist and have many questions, such as what do the different approaches and qualifications mean, who is experienced enough and who could help me the best? Regardless of which approach is used, one thing we do know is that the most important factor in creating positive client outcomes is the quality of the relationship between the therapist and client.

The therapeutic relationship is unique, different to the ones we have with friends and family.
As a therapist, I work with clients to help them deal with issues such as depression, anxiety and invasive thoughts. I believe that society is quick to label people and say “whats wrong with you?” whereas, I believe we should be asking “What happened to you?” My clients have included survivors of childhood abuse, neglect, sexual assault and those recovering from traumatic-based experiences that have affected their current quality of life. I offer bereavement counselling to help people navigate their pain and find their own way to make sense of their loss. I recognise that, as each person is unique, so is their grieving process.

There are many reasons people come to counselling, for example bereavement, relationship breakdown, issues at work, past or recent traumatic events, difficulties around disordered eating or complexities associated with gender dysphoria. Whatever it is that has led you to consider counselling, I know you have a unique story to tell. Are you are struggling with low self-worth, stress or anger? Or maybe you are worried, confused, scared, misunderstood, feeling lost or experiencing other unwanted feelings? Life can be very busy, demanding and draining. Counselling is an opportunity to slow down and look inside. What do you want?

Relationship Issues Counsellors
While need for human connection appears to be innate, the ability to form healthy, loving relationships is learned. Some evidence suggests that the ability to form a stable relationship starts to form in infancy, in a child's earliest experiences with a caregiver who reliably meets the infant's needs for food, care, warmth, protection, stimulation, and social contact. Such relationships are not destiny, but they are theorized to establish deeply ingrained patterns of relating to others. The end of a relationship, however, is often a source of great psychological anguish.
