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.

Do you worry all the time? Are you scared of what other people think of you? Does your life feel exhausting and overwhelming? Maybe it's hard to put into words exactly what life is like for you? Perhaps it’s hard for you to say no when people ask you to do things even if you don't want to do them? Maybe this affects work and relationships and stops you going out or applying for that new job or just puts you under pressure the whole time. Perhaps you feel isolated and lonely because it's just too hard to connect with others. I wonder if all you want is to feel comfortable in your own skin? If this is you - I get it, I see you.

If we never take a leap of faith then we never know. More significantly we remain stuck. I often talk to clients about the power of change. In my work I am for people to gain a greater understanding of who they really are. Whilst enabling them to explore their feelings, circumstances and relationships. The goal of our work together is to challenge any destructive patterns or behaviours and work towards positive active change. In the end this enables people to live a more fulfilling and calmer life.

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 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.

Are you upset and overwhelmed by relationships, work situations, family issues? That sense of panic and over thinking where your body feels stressed & the anxiety rockets? Did something happen that you have not shared with anyone, or feel nobody ‘gets it’? Has it felt too big & yet needs sorting and resolving? It’s understandable to feel frustrated, anxious or angry. Dealing with those feelings while maintaining a family, job & ‘a busy life’ can feel like hard work. “There needs to be more to life” & “It needs to be better than this “ are often said. To feel free from the past, to build a confidence in yourself.

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.

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.

Therapy is one time when it is all about you. Your experiences, your feelings. When things feel difficult – whether or not you know the reasons why, therapy can really help. How? At the heart of therapy is your relationship with your therapist. When your therapist offers you space to think and to feel, uninterrupted and without judgement, you can start to make more sense of things, together. So it’s important to find a good connection. There are many types of therapist – it’s not necessarily sensible shoes and long silences.

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.

Taking the step to ask for help is often the hardest thing we do. I think as adults we feel as if we "should be able to cope" or "others have it harder" and that in some way needing help or someone to talk to in difficult times is showing a weakness. We invest time and money in keeping our bodies in shape and while that is the vehicle that gets us through our life we need to care for our other parts too. Our emotions and our relationships constantly need recognition and yet we only seek help when we reach a crisis point. So whether you are at a crisis point or struggling with anxiety, depression or a bereavement I am here to help.
