Are you exhausted by the effort it takes to manage your feelings? Do you want to feel safe? Do you wonder who you are or why you feel bad? Whether you are struggling with anxiety, depression, low self esteem, panic disorders or relationship problems, there is good news. Research has shown that a good relationship with a counsellor/therapist can really help. My approach is to help you understand both 'your hidden self' (the unconscious) and find everyday tools and tasks that can help you change your life. I hope I can show you that all the wisdom and creativity you need to enjoy your life is within reach.

Not accepting new clients
I am unable to accept new clients before 3rd June 2024. For you to be reading this something in your life has become difficult and you have recognised you need to talk to someone. I am a good listener and I can help you explore the things in your life that are confusing and painful. When life becomes difficult underlying issues often come to the surface such as low self-esteem and not feeling good enough. These may be disrupting your relationships, causing you to withdraw and feel alone, or lost, depressed or anxious and overwhelmed. These are things I am able to work on with you.

Or are you looking for someone who will listen and be non judgemental and to whom you can talk in confidence about issues that are bothering you that would be difficult to share with friends or family members? Your feelings may be related to a bereavement or loss, the effects of abuse, relationship issues, or a major life change or may be related to something unresolved from the past. You may also be seeking support in setting goals and moving on in a positive way. These (and others) are areas in which I am well experienced.

I’m very much an advocate of being compassionate with ourselves, especially when having a difficult time. Yet I’ve often found this tends to be when we’re the hardest on ourselves, judging our emotional responses and questioning how well we’re coping. Although this seems to be a very human response, it can add to our levels of stress, upset and confusion. I provide a safe, non-judgemental space for you to be heard, understood and to help you make sense of whatever is going on for you. Focused support will help you gain greater clarity and self acceptance. Feeling more resourced, you can move forwards with greater ease.

Often people I work with initially report feeling stuck with Depression, Anxiety or PTSD. I recognise when we feel stuck with emotional difficulties we need to feel heard, have a way of making sense of what we are feeling and gain a sense of hope for the future. Through the therapeutic work I deliver using CBT and/or EMDR I hope to offer just that. I have an adaptive style and would tailor the therapy to you. Throughout our work together I would be alongside you, go at your pace, value and encourage your contributions, and aim to empower you to meet your goals. I strive to create a warm, non-judgemental, curious therapeutic space.

Sometimes we just need support from someone that isn’t family or a close friend. Someone who we can trust that they will hold space for us in order to process certain events, or, a confidential objective party that will listen, without judgement, so we can make sense of ourselves and the world around us.

Sleep or Insomnia Counsellors

How effective is treatment for insomnia?

The most effective treatments for insomnia are behavioral techniques that reduce anxiety, including anxiety about falling asleep, and allow the body’s natural cycles to be recalibrated. The most common treatment is cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia (CBT-I), which researchers have found to be more useful than medication, with rates of success as high as 80 percent.

Are there specific medications for sleep problems?

There are many medications, both over-the-counter and prescription that treat sleep problems. Supplements such as melatonin are popular and may help, though there is little evidence that it is more effective than a placebo. Prescription medications such as zolpidem are sometimes prescribed.

Are there natural treatments for sleep problems?

There are many natural treatments for everyday sleep problems. Reducing blue-light emitting screens, setting a regular bedtime, regular exercise, reducing caffeine and nicotine consumption, and keeping the bedroom dark and cool at night are all lifestyle changes that can help those who struggle with sleep but may not reach the level of an insomnia diagnosis.

What’s the difference between having trouble falling asleep and insomnia?

Life events, stress, and anxiety can lead to sleepless nights for everyone from time to time. To be diagnosed with insomnia, a patient must experience trouble falling asleep, trouble remaining asleep, waking up too early, or non-restorative sleep at least three nights per week for at least one month. Sleep problems affect one-third to one-half of the population, while chronic insomnia affects about 10 to 15 percent of people.
