I offer therapy to adults, young people, and couples. Counselling can help when we feel stuck, lost and overwhelmed and can’t find a way to make sense of those difficult feelings on our own. Speaking to someone who isn’t a friend or family member can help you to see a problem from a different perspective, without judgement or bias. You may be struggling with feelings of sadness, anxiety, stress, anger or loss. Perhaps you'd like to find the mental tools to help give you greater resilience and confidence. Or you could be looking for ways to manage conflict and improve communication within your personal relationships.

Life can get complicated, confusing and a little frustrating at different times throughout our lives. Despite our best efforts to carry on coping with life on a day-to-day basis, there are times when seeking trained and experienced assistance to make sense of what has made us who we are can be extremely beneficial.

As a therapist for both adults & adolescents I understand the impact of today's ever changing world can have on us at any age. I will offer you the opportunity to talk through your worries and feel more emotionally tolerant for the future ahead; whichever path you choose to take. I can help you build your self-esteem and promote confidence in your own ability; using the tools you already have and new ones you'll develop. Anxiety, anger, depression & shame are words we're hearing more frequently but have we become intolerant to experiencing them? I offer you an opportunity to talk through your issues in an emotionally healthy way.

Experiencing problems or difficulties can impact on our feelings, behaviour, relationships and ability to engage in learning and growing - children and young people are no different! Poor mental health can cause disruptions to a child’s life and without appropriate support it can stay with them throughout their adult life, affecting their long-term wellbeing and ability to reach their full potential. Sometimes it is difficult to speak to people we feel closest too, we don't want to upset or worry them. Counselling offers a child a regular, private safe space to express and explore any worries and difficult feelings.

Depression, anxiety and grief can really take it out of you - leave you feeling like a shadow of your former self, drain your energy and your self-confidence, and make you feel like you can never feel happy again. I want to use my counselling skills and experience to help you to build yourself back up until you feel like there's nothing you can't manage, no matter what life throws at you.

I offer a safe and confidential space for you to talk openly about any issues which may be causing you distress or concern in your life. It is not unusual for people to feel depressed or anxious at some stage in their life. Sometimes this can be related to a particular life event, other times these feelings can seem to come from nowhere. These periods can feel never ending and intense and often result in leaving you feeling isolated, confused stuck and struggling. Working with individuals, young people and couples, I provide short term solution focused therapy as well as long term therapy for issues needing more exploration.

Various situations that confront us can also cause us to struggle to live comfortably. Other times we are aware of our over reactions. Some situations can also have a knock-on effect in other areas of our lives. For some this may reside in a difficult childhood, or an unhappy marriage, or discomfort in other relationships or other unresolved issues. It is not easy to be vulnerable regarding these things. However, when our life is not functioning comfortably it can trigger a desire for change. I would like to help you navigate those areas of discomfort or unresolved memories or situations so you can begin to process these places.

Asking for help can be difficult and contacting a therapist may feel scary. That’s why from our first contact I aim to create a safe, confidential non-judgemental space for you to explore your difficulties. Talking to a therapist offers a different perspective on how you feel and relate to others. We’ll draw on your past and present to find new ways to move forward for the best future for you. We can all get stuck reacting in ways that are not always useful to our wellbeing. Working with a psychotherapist brings insight into how we react, why we react that way, and changing negative patterns thinking, feeling and behaviour.

Therapy is a time for you. Perhaps you’re struggling with difficult feelings, stuck in old patterns of behaviour unable to see the way out, or want some ‘me' time, I can offer you a safe and confidential space in which we can explore your thoughts, feelings and experiences together, at the pace you wish. I'll listen in a warm and thoughtful way, without judgement, and we'll work together to help you process the difficulties you're facing and gain an understanding. One size doesn't fit all, so I'll support you on your own personal journey, providing you with the opportunity to be listened to, to feel understood and be thought about.

I'm a therapist who believes in working with my clients to help them find perspective in times of struggle, without minimising what they are going through, without staying silent at the other end of the room and leaving you on your own to figure it out. I get that things are tough and I seek to work relationally. I can look back with you at past difficulties, things that went wrong, and I will work with you to find a way to integrate those issues so that they don't toxify and ruin the present. I also believe that choice and change are processes that can be learned and that we can manifest good things if we know how!

I know that it can be daunting reaching out for help and that many people never do reach out, perhaps because they are the strong ones who are supporting everyone else around them so their needs are at the bottom of the long list of things to do and people to look after. Please know that you are important too. And in helping yourself, you are also helping those around you. If you are feeling anxious or low in mood for whatever reason, I can help and support you through this. A light house offers hope to those travelling on turbulent seas, I see myself as that guiding light to those that find me and travel in my direction.
