I work with adults using a holistic approach who are feeling stuck. Many people since COVID are struggling with depression, stress, anxiety, and burnout. Some people are turning to alcohol, drugs or other addictive behaviours to cope. Its ok to find life hard. I specialise in working with people who are worrying they aren’t managing their mental health, who may have experienced trauma, and may be self-medicating. I offer an entirely non-judgemental, confidential, compassionate and a safe space to talk about some of these things and help you to identify what changes you would like to make. I also specialise in working with ADHD.

Is your relationship or marriage in the middle of a crisis or heading that way? Most of my work is in helping to save relationships ravaged by a variety of issues. My greatest skill is in listening to you, and helping you to understand yourself and your relationships in a way that suits you and the context. To do this, I work in a relational way with you, establishing a sense of trust in a safe therapeutic environment, that in turn will enable you to clarify just what it is that is happening with your troubled relationship. My own life experience, as well as my training provides me with the tools to walk with you at times of crisis.

When life gets difficult, the most courageous thing we can do for ourselves, is to reach out for help. Counselling is for anybody making their journey through the challenges of life. You might feel overwhelmed or just a little bit ‘stuck.’ Day-to-day tasks might be a struggle. You might have lost someone – recently or in the past. There might be changes in your life or difficult decisions to be made. Perhaps a past event keeps popping up, influencing the present more than you would like? Counselling can help.

I can provide counselling with a difference a blend of counselling, coaching and psycho-education. Counselling – gaining an understanding of you, what drives you, what you do, why and how this affects you. Coaching – looking at ways to move forward, gaining solutions for a new way ahead and psycho-education – understanding you in terms of the psychology (as well as) within your relationships and gaining insight into why you find yourself feeling and acting as you do (and possibly how this may affect others). I believe effective therapy means gaining an understanding of you.

I understand that to make that first call or email for counselling can be extremely difficult, the fact you’re here means you’ve taken the first step towards making positive changes in your life. Are you stuck, feeling lost or alone, afraid or upset? I aim to help you to make sense of your fears, worries and anxieties. Many people find it easier to talk to someone who they see as being separate to their life rather than friends or family. I can help you make sense of experiences of the past and resolve complicated feelings linked to these. Therapy can be used to better yourself, allowing you to take complete control of your life.

Hello, I am an integrative counsellor offering 1:1 therapy, couple counselling and group therapy via telephone, zoom or face to face appointments in my private practice. It can feel quite daunting to see a counsellor, so I provide an initial free 50 minute in-take session for you to discuss your issues and any concerns you may have about your counselling journey. The in-take session will give the opportunity for me the counsellor and you the client, time to explore what you want from this process. Then together we can decide if you want to continue the proccess as me as your therapist.

I have 16 years experience as a senior specialist psychotherapist in the NHS. My approach to both psychological and physiological suffering is to help patients work through their often long-standing personal difficulties, whilst promoting self-acceptance and committed action. An assumption I bring to my clinical practice is that most people want to live their lives in a direction of their choosing and in a way that reflects their personal values. As a therapist, my main focus is on those things that keep us 'stuck', that make it difficult for us to feel connected to the people and things that matter to us.

Do you hear yourself telling everyone that you’re ‘fine’, but really you aren’t fine? Feelings of anxiety, panic and depression can get in the way of you living your best life. Are you having relationship, body image, school, college, or work issues? Do you feel you aren’t good enough? Maybe you’ve painful memories and have trouble sleeping. Perhaps you aren’t sure what it is making you feel like this. You may be feeling isolated, misunderstood and finding it difficult to share your problems with those around you. I believe that if you can begin to open up to me about what is going on for you, you’ll start to heal and feel better.
