Good therapy is about change: changing reactions, behaviours, a difficult aspect of self, challenging attitudes/beliefs about yourself or your story. I love working with clients who are prepared to jump in, take risks and seek solutions - this is the way to ensure real change. I will jump in and risk too. I value being human and involved in the therapy and am also practically minded and view the best wisdom as something that can directly be applied to life. A supervisee recently described me as "real, relational, ordinary, practical and not floaty/wispy". I like to incorporate psychoeducation and relevant theoretical information.

As a very experienced Counsellor (qualified 1998) and Physical Therapist (Pilates Instructor qualified 1984) I have an innate interest in and deep respect for people. My mission has been to support and work with my clients in assisting them in achieving their healing and wellness. Often it helps to be listened to and it is important to understand why things are the way they are. Perhaps you feel "stuck"and are at a loss to know how to deal with a difficult situation - or it may be that you are having difficulties in relationships with other people.

Life can feel like an uphill struggle sometimes. Therapy is a space where we can discover the obstacles that might be holding you back, and unpack them so that you’re able to navigate life with more self-belief and self-acceptance. Therapy can create change, growth, or it might simply be the first step towards living the life you want to. My aim is to offer you support and provide a space that is comfortable, calm, and free from judgement. Your needs are at the centre of our therapeutic journey together

During our lifetime one in four of us will experience negative thoughts and feelings that can leave us feeling overwhelmed and floundering. It can feel like an insurmountable struggle to deal with current situations or unresolved issues from our past. I know that seeking out a counsellor is a brave decision to make. For you, it can be hugely beneficial to talk to someone who will listen and who wants to understand what you are experiencing, in complete confidence and without judgement. Counselling can help us to explore different ways of communicating our feelings and needs and gently challenge our existing beliefs.

Coming to counselling can feel a little daunting; sharing some of our private thoughts and feelings with someone that we do not know can be hard and can feel a little strange. I will help to make you feel comfortable and at ease by offering you a safe, confidential space for you to talk openly, and at a pace that suits you. I am committed to ensuring that you will feel heard, accepted and understood and I will make every effort to appreciate what it is like to be you and to help you understand your feelings and emotions.

One of the main things that I love about my counselling work is the unique opportunity it gives me to be alongside and encourage you in the good times and bad times. I strongly believe that life should not be a lonely journey and I value the relationship element of counselling above all else. We can all at times be surrounded by others but feel completely alone in our thoughts or our troubles, not wanting to burden those we love. Through my work I have the privilege to travel alongside people as they bravely face their issues, creating with them moments of sanctuary in which they can gain perspective and find their way.

Quite often people find that painful experiences and relationships in their past mean that things in the present can be complicated and sometimes hard to bear. They affect how we feel about ourselves, how we feel about the world and how we relate to other people we encounter.  If we work together we’ll explore what brought you to therapy now and think together about where the difficulties in your present might have come from. I will listen very carefully to you in order to appreciate what you are feeling so that we can begin to see how you might find a greater freedom in your life.
