Online Only Therapist. Specialism: Depression/Anxiety. Commonly other issues are intertwined such as trauma, attachment issues and low self-esteem. Clients that begin to work with me often do so because they find that their feelings, thoughts or other symptoms have begun to affect areas of functioning in life; they find that coping mechanisms that have been helpful in the past are beginning to work less effectively.

During our lives we encounter loss including bereavement, separation, ill health and relationship or transitional difficulties. All of these external factors can and will affect how we relate to others, the world around us and most importantly ourselves. This may include withdrawing, substance use or abuse, unhealthy eating patterns and other self harmful behaviours. Our work together will be to focus on these changes and how you can develop and cultivate a positive relationship with yourself, and others. I have supported many people who experience overwhelming symptoms of trauma, low self-esteem, anxiety and depression.

Are you feeling hopeless, low, anxious, lost or just not quite right? Struggling with imposter syndrome, overwhelmed or unfulfilled? I can offer you a calm, compassionate, non-judgemental space to explore whatever's on your mind or in your heart. I believe that you deserve an approach to therapy that's truly as unique as you are, so I never use 'a one size fits all' approach. Instead, I draw from a wide array of tools, approaches and theories - always working alongside you to find out what's best for you. Whether there's a certain event that's brought you to counselling, or things just don't feel 'quite right', counselling can help.

Life is tough. We all experience loss and difficulties along the way but sometimes those things can feel unmanageable or overwhelming. Maybe the situation is just too big, or maybe it's an accumulation of things that have built up over time that mean you feel you need some therapeutic support. As an Integrative Counsellor and Psychotherapist, trained in Person-Centred, CBT and Attachment Theory with a particular specialism in working with traumatic loss and bereavement I can provide an empathic space for you to work through your current issues and to explore how your past may be informing your responses in the here and now.

Do you sometimes feel crushed under the weight of traumatic experiences from your past? These experiences can prevent you from moving forwards and keep you hostage, repeating unhelpful patterns. I would like to support you on your journey to becoming who you really are and in trusting that inner voice. Working together towards self love with gentle compassion we can create a space where you can go beyond just surviving. At your own pace we will challenge stories and patterns of behaviour that block the path to meaningful change, wholeness and healing.

Therapy can help us to manage our lives and our relationships better, it can lead to more fulfilling relationships and a renewed sense of aliveness. Learning how to manage symptoms such as overthinking, insomnia, anxiety, depression, lack of energy, or an enduring sense of helplessness and despair, can lead to renewed energy and a greater sense of freedom in our lives. In my sessions I often use teaching, in order to help make sense of and understand why you might be feeling the way you do and to help you learn ways to make changes in order to better manage those feelings.

I help those who feel stuck in their current circumstances, thinking there is more to life than this, wanting to understand and feel their purpose, and unable to experience any satisfaction. Together, we will work through any past or present blocks that may contribute to how you feel. By working through issues that contribute to feeling stuck, a person can become aligned with their authentic self, ultimately leading to a sense of worth.

Sometimes we need to talk. Or unload. Or work out what needs to change. Sometimes we need to do this with someone who's NOT family or a friend or colleague - someone who can listen deeply and confidentially, with fresh ears - with no bias or judgement. Someone who's steady, accepting and unshockable. What does counselling with me look like? Well, there's no one-size-fits-all. I will tailor it to your needs, session by session. You may have clear objectives, or none at all. It's all ok. We can work it out. I'll certainly want to get to know YOU as a human being, not just the 'issue' you're bringing.

As the client, I will treat you as the expert on yourself, as no-one else knows exactly what it’s like to be you. Some of my clients I am currently working with, are exploring topics such as: bereavement, anxiety, work-related stress, sexuality, neurodiversity and relationships. I love working with clients to explore power and have noticed lots of clients exploring themes of finding their voice in therapy and establishing boundaries.
