Have a safe space to express your feelings and learn techniques to observe, identify and work on the factors that may be affecting your emotional well-being. Learn to establish healthy and constructive relationships with others and with yourself. Work on self-compassion and acceptance to start focusing on the things that matter to you now. Learn to manage your anxiety so it doesn't define or control your life anymore. Increase your self-awareness and observe the circumstances that may trigger your discomfort and find alternative coping strategies for similar situations.

With previous extensive NHS experience as a therapist, supervisor, and manager, I am a very passionate, compassionate, authentic, and experienced childhood trauma specialist. I specialize in early life trauma and any other forms of PSTD/trauma. I work with both adults & children (from 13 years old), struggling with all forms of anxiety and depression. Therapy can really help alleviate distressing symptoms and find a better way of managing difficult situations. It may be that anxiety has triggered difficult memories and caused depression symptoms. I use an individualized approach delivered with compassion and understanding

I am a highly experienced counsellor and my aim is to create a positive, trusting environment in which I help you to help yourself. I provide a safe and caring professional counselling and psychotherapy service. I am an empathic and approachable person working in a non-judgemental and confidential way. By exploring your past, the causes of present day problems are often revealed. We can't change the past, but we can gain understanding allowing you to relate differently to yourself, others and problems in order to choose to make changes or find acceptance.

I believe I know what matters in building a safe and trusting environment to enable personal change and growth. I have chosen to base my counselling ethos on a Humanistic modality which includes the belief each of us has the ability, drive and autonomy within ourselves to resolve emotional issues, conflicts and life changing events. I also recognise we all need a bit of help and support in times of distress.

Counselling can be really helpful when you just need someone to talk to and it can offer so much more. When you are feeling like something is just not right or life seems so challenging, talking to a Counsellor can make the difference. Many people just want to feel better and get a sense of relief from the turmoil of life. It may be that a life event has really impacted on you, such as a bereavement, trauma or loss of a job. You may feel like the world just does not understand you or perhaps you are struggling to come to terms with your sexuality. There are many many different reasons why people choose counselling. We're all unique.

There may be a number of reasons that bring you to therapy in this particular moment. These could be long term concerns, such as anxiety, depression, relationship issues, self-esteem / self-identity and past trauma(s), or more immediate concerns such as the impact of COVID-19 on your mental health. You may also be looking to understand yourself better, perhaps with some sense of unease about yourself that you can’t quite put your finger on yet.

Would you like to talk to someone in confidence? There are times in our lives that we hesitate to share our inner thoughts and feelings, or keep our problems and painful experiences, anxieties, or worries from our friends, loved ones, and family. In times like these, it is helpful to talk things out in confidence to someone who will listen without being judgemental or critical, but will be there to offer a tentative ear with empathic understanding, with a genuine care, warmth and respect.

Sometimes it's hard to know where to start. We know something doesn't feel right. These feelings can consume and overwhelm us and stop us from moving forward. Whatever you are feeling, having a safe and confidential space to explore, within a non-judgemental relationship, can be the start to living a better life and looking at the future in a different way. You are unique and what you bring to therapy will be individual to you.

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.

As a Chartered Counselling Psychologist, and associate of the British Psychological Society with many years experience in the NHS and in private practice, I aim to offer a low cost, low-stress service, which is both friendly and accessible. My training initially as a psychotherapist enables me to offer long term and short term work. I can offer Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Psychodynamic, and Humanistic therapy. I like to tailor my approach to individual needs and according to the evidence base. I cover all the major issues and many more and offer concessions to students and unwaged folks. I also run supervision groups.
