Therapy can be transformative - so why struggle alone? Whether you are in deep emotional pain, anxious, stressed or perhaps frustrated with your life, exploring the issues in a safe setting can be empowering. In a world that can feel frantic yet lonely, it's hard to dedicate time to yourself. But you are important: you deserve an opportunity to reassess 'how you got here', to be more self-aware and find ways to be truly happy. I offer the chance to be really heard - with empathy and without judgement - in total confidence. We'll work together to understand what is troubling you at a depth, duration and pace that feel right to you.

All clients, have the basic expectations and the desire to be listened to, understood, helped, and healed. I offer this. I am a calm, genuine, and non-judgmental individual and have the experience to hold your difficulties safely and securely. My noticing working with people is, no one comes to therapy because they feel OK. There are difficulties that underlie each and every one of us. I have had my issues and you will or have had yours. I do find similarities with some clients who have similar difficulties. The similarities are the underlying trauma of difference. There is the sense that you are alone.

Life is challenging for all of us. Sometimes we hit a trigger and we feel in crisis. Often talking to friends and family is difficult, yet we still need a safe, confidential space to off load our feelings. Counselling gives us that time and space to explore our feelings, free from any judgement. It helps to build resilience and to identify any negative behaviour and thought patterns that may be making life more difficult for us. It helps us to develop a greater self awareness of what is working and not working for us in both personal and professional relationships. It doesn't solve everything but it helps to give a greater choice.

I can assist you in gaining insight & understanding into your history to help you make clearer decisions about your future. As we work together to understand the way you are, the easier it will be for you to make decisions to make your life, career and relationships happier, more balanced and more empowered. In therapy you will have a unique chance to be authentic without self-censorship or consideration of others; where the focus is solely on you. As there are so few chances to encounter this kind of interaction, this acts as a powerful catalyst for change and transformation.

When life feels overwhelming or unmanageable therapy can provide a safe space in which feelings and thoughts can be shared confidentially and without judgement. By exploring concerns you have and working with words and creative exercises difficult feelings can be untangled, understood and healing can occur. This can give you the feeling of confidence, strength and freedom, feel more in control and restore a sense of balance in your life.

I have experience in supporting people of all ages, who have brought a wide range of issues, including: bereavement, relationship difficulties, anxiety, depression , low self-esteem, addictions, self-harm, redundancy, illness and caring responsibilities.
Working from a shepherds hut, in a peaceful, rural location, I offer both short term and long term counselling. People come to counselling for many reasons, allowing yourself some time and space to talk can help you understand the causes of your unhappiness, distress, anxiety or feelings of disconnection. Being able to link feelings to your patterns of behaviour or ways of relating with others, can help you make sense of certain aspects of your life. Counselling can empower you by helping you make sense of what is happening, deal with painful thoughts, and enable you to make the changes you need to move forward.

Walk-Talk Therapy: Do you want to re-connect with nature? To feel more grounded, mindful & to just slow down? We will walk in the beautiful woods and fields near my counselling room in the South Downs. Walking & being in nature releases endorphins which in turn reduces depression and anxiety. Life is often so busy that nature becomes removed - this will give you time to reconnect. For some people face to face traditional counselling is too anxiety provoking, so walking in parallel can feel more comfortable.

My clients often feel painfully stuck in some way and that's why they come to me. Problems become overwhelming. For instance, being unhappy in a marriage; having a serious illness and dealing with its effects; feeling low and not understanding why; dealing with divorce; having problems with one's children and not being sure how to manage; wanting to move forward in life but just not managing somehow; work issues - struggles with colleagues, dissatisfaction with a career. Anxiety, depression and confusion usually accompany these challenging life situations.

Depression Counsellors
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
