Specialist counselling service for women. Maybe you’ve been through a difficult patch recently, and you’re feeling low or anxious. Maybe you don’t really have anything specific to talk about, just a general feeling of not-quite-rightness. Or maybe you’ve been through something traumatic in your past that seems to affect you in your life today. I want to support my clients to find a way to live more deeply, with meaning and purpose and clarity, alongside the many and varied losses in every life. When we are able to be as we are and feel as we feel, then I believe we all are the stronger for it.

As an experienced Dramatherapist I have found that when things are too hard to talk about initially, creativity can help us to express and process and then release what no longer serves us. My private practice allows me to work online with adults, and young people, and in a Primary school with a specialist speech and language unit. I have also worked in numerous Secondary schools. I have experience in working with anxiety, low self esteem, pre and post bereavement, fostering and adoption (life story work) neurodiversity and survivors of sexual assault

Sometimes life is hard - and we can easily get trapped in trying to feel in control while at the same time losing contact with what's important. Therapy can provide an opportunity to carefully think things through when your attempts to get by are tiring you out and no longer working. Therapy is about teamwork: we both listen out for patterns or themes; try to understand where problems might have come from; and get a sense of your personal and social sources of stress and strength. We can also consider what meaningful change might look like, and I can support you to plan and work towards this in a safe and manageable way.

Have you recently been through a loss of any kind? Perhaps it was someone you were close to? Or maybe your health has taken a turn for the worse? Perhaps you have split up with your partner? Or are you trying to cope with an unexpected change but find yourself struggling? Are you asking yourself why is my life so hard? Why can’t things just get back to being “normal?” Loss of any kind and change of any kind can come out of the blue and can turn your life upside down. Are you needing to talk to someone about how you are really feeling?

Our early relationships and environments can often lead us to over identify with and internalise the projections, expectations, and demands of others. Therapy offers a place for you to get to know and become reacquainted with your internal world. Over time, the therapeutic process may not only illuminate your conscious, but your unconscious narratives, to reveal a deeper understanding and connection with a more authentic sense of who you are in the present and how you relate to the world. ​

Speaking with someone for the first time about personal issues or trauma can feel really daunting. It is important to feel safe and not judged when talking about difficult things, and my aim is for us to develop a relationship where you can explore whatever it is that you need to. There is not an exhaustive list of the reasons for coming to counselling initially but one thing is sure and that is it begins with building trust and beginning to speak openly. Our sessions will be collaborative: I will facilitate, but you will lead the way. Even if you can't pin point why things feel difficult, you're not alone.

Coming to therapy can be a big step and it feels different to other social situations. The space is there for you to use how you wish. Maybe it's to talk about feelings of depression, a bereavement or a health concern. Perhaps work and family life has been rocky recently but you can't put your finger on why. We can use the space to explore these things and understand what might be underneath the difficulty.

Female Counsellors

Does it matter what gender my therapist is?

In general, this is not an important factor, as there is no relationship between a therapist’s gender and their efficacy. Some clients, however, prefer to see therapists of a particular gender, whether due to their own past experiences with men and women, or ingrained beliefs about how people of different genders think and behave. Exploring the roots of such preferences and considering what one wants to address in therapy can help someone determine whether their therapist’s gender truly matters to them.

Should I see a female therapist?

Many people—not just women—prefer to see a female therapist, either because they believe that a woman will be able to relate to their specific challenges (for example, sexism in the workplace) or because they imagine feeling more comfortable disclosing sensitive information to a woman. Such beliefs may not turn out to be accurate, however, and adhering too rigidly to a gender preference can at times hinder a client from finding the best therapeutic match.

Do therapists get specific training to help with women’s concerns?

Therapists are trained to provide care to clients of any gender. However, some therapists—both men and women—may pursue additional training in feminist therapy, gender-specific issues, or women’s mental health. Female clients may wish to ask prospective therapists whether they have received specific training in the client’s primary area(s) of concern, or whether they have worked extensively with women on issues similar to their own.

How can I inquire about a therapist’s experience in treating women?

It’s OK—even encouraged!—to ask a therapist directly whether and how often they have treated women in the past, or whether they have treated women dealing with the client’s most prominent concern(s). Competent therapists will be happy to share their educational background, preferred treatment modalities, and prior client experience to help an individual find the therapist best suited to their needs.
