I support people in finding hope for the future rather than existing in the past. Sometimes it can feel as though we are playing a role for other people, rather than being our genuine selves. Things can become overwhelming and feel as though you are having to face things on your own. You may be dealing with issues such as anxiety, stress, depression or grief. You're not alone. By seeking counselling, you are taking a first step towards having a better understanding of your needs and how to meet them, work through past experiences and feel more in control of your future. If this resonates with you, read on...

Do you need other ways of expression in therapy than sitting and talking - in order to make true sense of your experiences? How to tell the story of YOU when words are not enough? Or maybe you have always been sensitive to images, colour, music or anything that is outside the spoken world? I am a creative integrative counsellor providing a safe and non judgemental space for you to reach your inner experiences beyond expressing them verbally. You don't need any artistic or creative skills to benefit from this form of therapy - the resources are already in you - we will work together on activating the right side of the brain.

Anxiety, depression and other mental challenges can be debilitating. It's something that many of us live with each and every day and we need to find the best ways to deal with our emotions, what we are going through and how we react to certain situations. Being the best you is not easy, but you can do it. It is undoubtedly achievable no matter where you are in your life. Some may find difficulty showing up to their counselling sessions, some may think it's easier to talk online and some may find comfort with the presence of an animal in the room and even doing activities with the animal. Your needs are a priority.

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.

Thank you for taking time to visit my profile, It is the first step towards change and takes courage. Maybe you're here because you have experienced a difficult past? Perhaps your childhood has left you feeling hurt? Do you feel excluded from others and when you are around other people do you feel like you don’t fit in and find yourself overcompensating to fit in, or question yourself and wonder what is wrong with you? Are you constantly worrying and find it hard to relax around others? Maybe this surfaces anger, jealousy or sadness?

Life for children, young people and families can be really challenging, a fact that has only been made worse by the pandemic. seeking counselling or therapy for your child or yourself can be a really scary task, but it can also help to resolve the issues that many young people and families face every day. I am currently offering online sessions only. I have a virtual therapy room that is suitable for children aged 3-18. This is a highly effective tool and replicates the 'in person' therapy experience, meaning your child isn't missing out by working online.

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?

Teen Counsellors

What does therapy for teenagers look like?

When a therapist works with a teenager, the pair will talk about what the teen is struggling with and explore solutions, which may involve interpersonal skills, coping strategies, medication, or lifestyle changes related to sleep, diet, and exercise. Different therapists employ different modalities, but most involve a combination of conversation and skill building.

How long does therapy for teenagers generally take to work?

There’s variability in teenagers’ experiences and challenges; some may begin to improve from therapy within a few weeks while others may take several months or longer. Teens can discuss their progress with their therapist periodically to assess how they’re improving and any changes to the treatment plan that could potentially accelerate that progress.

How do you encourage a teenager to go to therapy?

It’s helpful to express your concern and love while framing therapy as an opportunity to explore a tool that could help improve their life; just like they practice baseball or dance, now they can practice their emotional skills. Give your teen control over the process where you can—maybe by weighing in on choice of therapist and signaling that therapy involves confidentiality, so a parent need not know all that is discussed in sessions.

How do you prepare teens for therapy?

You can prepare your teenager for therapy by describing what the process will look like and setting expectations for timeline, if requested. You can explain that the first session may begin with an assessment phase, that they can describe their experiences but that the therapist will ask questions too, and that it may take time to feel comfortable opening up. Ask how they’re feeling about the process and answer any questions calmly and supportively.
