Being diagnosed with an illness, or suffering from a stressful period in your life, can sometimes be a frightening and a bewildering experience. It can impact greatly on your emotional wellbeing as well as your physical health. And, as a family member, carer or friend, it can be just as hard watching someone you care about going through such a difficult time. Very often family members seek help to support themselves whist their loved ones navigate through difficult times.

If you are struggling with anxiety, confusion, feeling down or lost and the idea of labelling, diagnosis, treatment, medication, self-help or support groups aren't for you, then counselling will help. I bring compassion, wisdom, integrity and common sense. I have worked with the NHS, emergency services, local authorities, prisoners, long-term unemployed, private companies & individuals. If you've found yourself confronted by a problem that you are struggling to tackle and the alternatives of friends, family, the internet, GP's and other helping services don't seem to work or aren't available, then coming for counselling will help.

I offer professional, counselling experience in which you are able to explore your issues in a safe warm environment. Hourly sessions are offered from 4pm - 8pm Monday - Friday and Saturday mornings. I personally believe many people will benefit from counselling by helping individuals to understand their difficult experiences, along side the feelings and emotions attached to it. This process can be empowering, by enabling the client to work towards changing their lives to become more fulfilled. It takes great courage and strength to accept help with mental and emotional well-being, to work collaboratively.

Many of us find ourselves struggling to cope with past or current traumatic events, depression, work related stress, loss, relationship issues and various setbacks in life. It can feel very overwhelming if we mask our feelings and try to battle through alone. Perhaps you always put other peoples needs first and want to learn how to have your own needs met. You may have difficulties in your relationships and want to understand why unhealthy patterns of relating keep repeating themselves. Problems in our childhood such as abuse and neglect can rob our self esteem and confidence as adults. Counselling can help with many of these issues

If you are struggling with relationships, loss, stress, or feeling lost and overwhelmed, you might feel like you’re stuck, don’t know where to turn or how to move forward. Sometimes we don’t know what to say, how to say it or even fully understand what we are feeling; it’s often not just one thing that we are feeling but a complex mix of different emotions. Our sessions together will give you the opportunity to be heard, to explore your emotions and unpick the difficulties you are having.

Online psychotherapist with an eclectic and inventive approach. Practicing Internal Family Systems Therapy (IFS) and Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT). I believe that people already have within themselves what they need in order to overcome their struggles. All it takes is a bit of guidance and someone to ask the right questions. My wish for my clients is that they find the inner freedom to live the life that they want. I mostly work with expats, travelers, digital nomads, burners - I can relate to the lifestyle and can appreciate the need for flexibility and rescheduling sessions when necessary, however, anyone is welcome.

Alcohol Use Counsellors

Are there specific medications for alcohol use?

There are oral medications approved to treat alcohol use disorder—such as disulfiram, acamprosate, and naltrexone, which also comes in an injectable form. These medications do help people reduce their drinking as well as avoid the problem of relapse. Naltrexone helps reduce cravings, disulfiram can make a person feel sick when they drink, and acamprosate may help ease symptoms like poor sleep and anxious feelings.

How do alcohol recovery or rehabilitation programs work?

In inpatient programs, individuals live in a facility with other patients in recovery; in outpatient programs,individuals live at home. These facilities are staffed with healthcare professionals including physicians, nurses, psychologists, counselors, and psychotherapists. Staff can also include people who have recovered themselves, serving as mentors and guides. These programs may use abstinence, harm reduction, detoxification, psychotherapy, and other tools for recovery.

How do 12-step programs combined with psychotherapy work?

Members of 12-step programs help each other reach abstinence and work to maintain it. These programs promote complete change in the individual’s emotional, mental, physical, and even spiritual perspectives. Some programs require that new members attend 90 meetings in 90 days. Many people do attend these programs in conjunction with their work in psychotherapy; the combination of therapy along with 12-step can be extremely effective.

How does harm reduction combined with psychotherapy work?

According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, harm reduction prevents death, injury, disease, overdose, and substance misuse. People who choose harm reduction for alcohol use reduce the amount of alcohol they intake. It is not abstinence-based like a 12-step program, but combining harm reduction with psychotherapy proves to be effective for many people.
