I am a chartered clinical psychologist with 15 years experience in mental health. Whilst working in the NHS, I have set up The Sycamore Private Practice so that people outside of mental health services can access support. I have worked with people, who have benefited from making sense of difficult or/and frightening experiences, improving their mood or lowering anxiety. If you would like a safe place in order to understand more about what is going on for you, or perhaps have specific areas that need a focus, we can do this together and at a pace that suits you. I have listed my areas of expertise and experience as a guide for you.

Are there issues in your life, past or present, that you haven't addressed. Are these issues preventing you from moving forward in your life, relationship or work. I am a trained Counsellor with eleven years experience. it is a requirement to undergo our own individual therapy when training therefore I am very aware that one of the most important decisions, in choosing a therapist, is to be able to connect with them. I am also aware, having been on the other side of the room how difficult it can be to open up our lives, past and present, to a stranger. Reaching out for help at a difficult time in our lives is not easy.

At times do you feel overwhelmed by what life throws at you? Is stress making you unable to make decisions? Are you a person who rebukes themselves for making a wrong decision? Are you your own worst critic? Have you noticed that patterns in life are continually repeating themselves? By becoming aware of these cycles, you will be able to prepare yourself with strategies that can break the cycle of repetition that can lead you to becoming empowered in life, taking away the fear of being embarrassed or shamed. I can help you look at making changes and find a way that is customised to support and establish a way forward for.

If you are finding life difficult, or struggling to understand or change the way you feel, talking to somebody can really help. Sometimes reaching out is the best thing you can do, and it can really help you put things into perspective and learn new ways of coping and dealing with the difficulties in your life. I have linked an example of how I work in this video: https://youtu.be/g4YMqJdPoj0

Do you find yourself awake at night with a head full of worries? and no matter how hard you try you can't make them disappear! I used to be that person. I had no idea how much personal therapy would help me. Are your negative thoughts ruling you and ruining your life? Are you stressed, anxious, depressed or suffering with anxiety? Are you self medicating with drink, drugs, or other harmful behaviours? Until you get to the root of your negative thoughts, these difficulties will not go away and your self defeating cycle will continue.

Do you feel unfulfilled, unhappy, unwell (Dr has given the 'all clear') or unsure why you keep reacting in certain ways? Together we can explore these concerns and the counselling journey will help improve your self-awareness as to the reasons for these emotions. Life can be hard and sometimes giving yourself 'time out' and the opportunity in a confidential, non-judgmental space to be open and honest with how you are thinking, feeling and behaving, will hopefully allow you to feel lighter and content with whom you are and have a positive impact on your future.

Are you looking for effective help to deal with trauma, panic and anxiety? Are you fed up with labels and diagnoses that do nothing to resolve the symptoms and pain that you're suffering with? CPTSD, PTSD, GAD and BPD are labels that define your symptoms, but that don't tackle the cause or do anything useful to relieve them. I specialise in helping people with anxiety and PSTD and have helped many people just like you, who have been struggling, sometimes for decades. I won't dredge up unnecessary past experiences - I only work with what is relevant. Also if you prefer, you won't have to speak in detail about your issue.

Life can be unpredictable and often things are put in our paths that have an impact on our psychological & Emotional wellbeing. Sometimes these issues can take their toll and cause us pain and suffering, partly due to pushing them to the back of our minds, bottling up or just trying to ignore them in the hope they may just go away. Quite often we try to maintain a brave face and show the world that we can cope, but the reality is, when we ignore difficult experiences, feelings and thoughts they are trapped inside. Never really disappearing, they stay just in the background within continuing to impact our view of self & our world.

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.
