You deserve to be free from anything standing in the way of you being true to and at peace with yourself. Perhaps you are feeling like you have lost this, or aren’t sure you have found it within just yet. Maybe you want to voice and explore something which is particularly challenging you. Whatever has brought you here, I would like to provide a supportive space for you to express it. I am an Integrative Counsellor/Psychotherapist, which means I draw on a range of approaches, including creative arts if this is something you are interested in trying. Most importantly, the way we work together must feel right for you.

If this is a time when you need to talk to someone, then I am here to listen and help you find the strength to move forward. I offer a safe and supportive space, with understanding that facing our realities can be hard. Allow me to walk this path alongside you, and let us face the things that you find most difficult together, carefully, gently and with compassion. Acceptance and change can take time. It's okay to revisit things several times and we will go at a pace you are comfortable with. I charge less than most, because I have another income, and I am a strong believer in making therapy available to more people.

Perhaps you are struggling with your sense of self or with your relationships, or are noticing patterns in your life that are unhelpful. Do contact me, and let's talk.

I first discovered counselling when I was referred to one many years ago. The experience for me was life changing. It was one of my first relationships that valued my choices and it and me gave me the tools, knowledge and courage to make changes in my life. I believe no one will know the truth about themselves until you find it by yourself. In doing so will give you greater value and empower you to make your own choices.

Feeling comfortable and content in this world has never been more difficult. The events of 2020 changed everyone's lives. Perhaps the pandemic impacted you directly and you feel you need help coming to terms with what has happened? Perhaps you feel that the situations we now face are not as important to you as the things you are already trying to cope with or have been coping with for a long time? Wherever you are at this moment in time, it is important to remember that help and support are available. When therapy works well, it means that life's challenges feel shared, understood and seem somehow more manageable.

We can all feel overwhelmed sometimes: it might be the breakdown of a relationship, loss of a friendship, daily struggles or those horrible feelings of anxiety that just won’t go away. We might be feeling unhappy but we’re not really sure why, we might feel life isn’t going the way we want it to whilst everyone else seems to be sorted. Talking openly and feeling truly heard can be life changing: we can say all those things that keep going round in our heads, the issues that keep coming back time and again, and work towards understanding what’s going on, make changes and find some peace. Isn't that what we all want?

I support students aged 16+, as well as adults affected by their time at school, including ex boarders. Being a student can be a hugely stressful experience. What should be an exciting and stimulating time can turn into a nightmare with low mood and self esteem; fear and anxiety. Sometimes, the impact is more subtle, and surviving difficult school experiences can force us to adapt in ways that can become unhelpful later in life. Our time at school can go on to influence us for many years to come. I have supported many adults affected by their school experiences, and struggling with the impact on their current lives.

Making the decision to reach out to a counsellor can feel really daunting and it's so important to find someone that feels right for you and you feel safe with.

It may be there is a specific situation that has caused you to feel overwhelmed or you may be struggling generally without a clear path forward. My approach is to support you to find your own answers and your own way through.

How can I find a therapist in Poltimore?

Search for nearby therapists or counsellors by inputting your city, town, or suburb; or postcode; or a provider’s name into the search bar. From there, you can filter providers by the issues they treat, cost, insurance, gender, and other factors to find providers who are well-suited to your needs. To navigate between locations within the same country, enter a new city or postcode into the search bar.

Learn more about how to find a therapist.

Is online therapy a good option?

Therapy conducted online or over the phone can be just as effective as in-person therapy, as long as there is a strong alliance between the client and the therapist. To find a therapist who provides telehealth services to clients in your area, click “Online Therapy” on the directory homepage and search by your city or town or your postcode.

What’s the difference between a psychologist, a therapist, and a counsellor?

Therapists, psychologists, and counsellors are all licensed mental health professionals. In many countries, psychologists have earned a doctoral degree. The terms “therapist” and “counsellor” are used somewhat interchangeably, but generally therapists offer longer-term, mental health care, while counsellors offer shorter-term care that may focus on one domain, such as marriage, career, or academic challenges.

What type of therapist is right for me?

Clients should consider factors such as insurance coverage and their primary reason(s) for seeking therapy to determine the type of professional best suited to their needs. Someone struggling with mental health challenges such as depression or anxiety, for example, may wish to seek out a clinical psychologist or therapist, while someone navigating career obstacles or marital upheaval may benefit from seeing a counsellor who can offer short-term, targeted support.

Is everyone in the Psychology Today Therapy Directory a licensed therapist?

The Psychology Today directory lists providers who offer legitimate mental health services to the public, including psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and counselors. Many have been licensed by the country where they practice; providers whose license or primary credential has been verified by Psychology Today are signified by a “Verified” symbol. Some clinicians or organizations provide services for which their state or country does not offer licenses, such as pastoral counselling. They may be selectively included without the “Verified” seal.

What type of therapy is right for me?

The type of therapy best suited to a particular individual depends on several factors, including their primary reason for seeking therapy, their preferred timeline (some therapy types last for a set number of sessions, while others are open-ended), and their personality and preferences—some may prefer a more structured approach. For many individuals, multiple types of therapy could provide a good fit.

Is online therapy cheaper than in-person therapy?

Many therapists charge the same amount for online therapy as they do for in-person therapy—though clients may still find this cost-effective if it cuts down on their transportation costs. Health insurance plans often offer equivalent coverage for online and in-person therapy; indeed, in many places, they are legally required to do so. Text-based or on-demand therapy apps may be cheaper than traditional one-on-one psychotherapy; however, the practice may be less effective and is not likely to be covered by insurance.
