I am LGBTQ aware and am experienced at working with people on the autistic spectrum.
It takes courage to make the first step and get support for your emotional well-being. I am experienced in counselling clients with a variety of issues with my main focus on bereavement, grief and loss. I am a volunteer bereavement counsellor at a local hospice and support individuals and their family members living with life limiting illnesses. It can be a great release to share your feelings with someone who is there just for you and not emotionally involved in your situation. Enquiries come directly to me and your first half hour session will be free. I will aim to return your call/message within a few hours.

My experience lies in working with people who have lost motivation, and are feeling stressed and anxious, those who are struggling with life events, such as bereavement, separation or redundancy, people who don't believe in themselves and who lack in confidence, and those who want to change but don't know how to, or are afraid of the repercussions. I understand that all of these issues can be debilitating and can cause you upset and distress, but life doesn't have to be this way. We can work together to help you find a way forward, and to help you find ways of making your life better so that you feel happier.

Whatever your concerns might be, I offer you a safe space to express yourself, without fear of being judged. My practice reflects my belief that you are the expert in your own life. By talking together we can explore what is troubling you and find ways to address, come to terms with, or perhaps even resolve your difficulties. My sessions are non-directive which means you decide what happens during sessions;  together we will explore your thoughts and feelings at a pace that feels right for you.

Looking for a therapist is a courageous first step to make. You may be feeling uncertain of what might come next. I have found that common themes clients bring often include: • Feelings of shame and a lack of worthiness • Being very self-critical • Feeling rejected, hurt, and alone • Stuck in relationships that are not fulfilling • Feeling that your life lacks purpose • Traumatic experiences that feel like they define you • Would it help to have a space to work through these issues and to feel greater clarity in your life? If any of these issues resonate with you then you might benefit from working with myself as your therapist.

Are you feeling overwhelmed or unable to cope with things that normally weren't an issue. Maybe you have experienced a trauma that still impacts your everyday life, or changes in circumstances for any number of reasons, financial, ill health or divorce. Many things can impact our mental health and each one of us experiences it differently. We all want to be listened to and understood and yet there may be things we can't even share with those closest to us. Therapy can help to unburden you, see solutions and gain a better understanding of yourself and what is best for you.

Are you struggling with something difficult in the here and now, such as the loss of a loved one, or the breakdown of a relationship? Or perhaps you’re aware of vague, underlying feelings of sadness, anxiety, or anger. Maybe you feel trapped in a cycle of repeated disappointments with partners, friends, career and don’t know why. Whether you know what the problem is, or even if you don’t, therapy can help. It’s an opportunity to explore yourself; to examine feelings, thought, and motivations to gain understanding - the first step towards navigating a different, happier course. You've taken the first brave step - the next is to call.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, psychologist, or counsellor, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counsellor in Preston?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in Preston specialise in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or counsellor who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

Can I afford counselling?
Yes. Most counsellors offer reasonable rates or will work on a sliding scale basis. Many accept health insurance. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the counsellor.
