My approach is psychodynamic , so talk-based and relational, with a focus on your embodied experience.
Life is not always easy. The fact that you are looking at my page suggests that something feels stuck, painful, maybe hopeless or unreachable and that you want something different for yourself – that you want things to change. Perhaps you want to free yourself from repetitive patterns of behaviour, depression, anxiety and self-limiting beliefs or the impact of trauma. Maybe you want to deepen your connection to yourself so that life feels richer and more rewarding and you can find a more authentic sense of yourself. Whatever your reason, I offer you a safe, empathetic and thoughtful space to explore whatever you want to bring.

I am a qualified and experienced Psychodynamic and Embodied Counsellor and I run a trauma-informed private practice in Stroud and Gloucester.
People take the step to seek counselling for many reasons. Perhaps you are experiencing feelings of anxiety, overwhelm or depression. You may be facing a dilemma, feeling stuck or lacking a sense of purpose or direction in life. Often people will come because they are struggling with relationship or family issues that feel hard to resolve. A traumatic event, loss or life-stage crisis might lead you to look for professional support.

My training comprised Humanistic, Psychodynamic and CBT therapies.
In troubling times it can sometimes feel like you are alone & seeking help might feel really difficult. Just having a space to make sense of the thoughts that jumble around our heads is invaluable. Perhaps you need to understand yourself, your relationships or events from your past. Sometimes all we need is someone to just listen and hear our story. Counselling promotes insight, fosters self-awareness & creates a stronger, more resilient sense of self. This powerful combination can be the kick-start for the changes in your life you wish to make - sometimes even the smallest changes can make a huge difference in your well-being.

I listen empathically so that I can understand you and what you are experiencing, without imposing my views on you or telling you what to do. I will encourage you to reconnect with yourself and your own resources. My role is to be with you as you make sense of your feelings, thoughts and behaviours and to support you in moving forward so that you can realise your full potential.

Hello and welcome. I am aware that it can feel overwhelming choosing a counsellor when life feels so difficult already. Hopefully I can help you make up your mind. Are you feeling helpless, hopeless and disconnected from life? Lonely, depressed or struggling with your relationships? Perhaps you’re experiencing anxiety, stress or post traumatic stress symptoms that impact you on a daily basis. Maybe you’re just feeling stuck in a rut and not sure where to go. Life can often feel messy, but no matter how big or how small your problem feels, we can work together to help you reach a more stable place.

Now more than ever we are living in a world where contact with others has become increasingly difficult, not just physically but also emotionally. It would be understandable for many people to be feeling isolated and cut of from the rest of humanity at this time, for some this may also trigger painful, old wounds of unmet needs and maybe even a sense of hopelessness. You may crave feeling really connected to someone who is fully present with you and is invested in really understanding you and your situation, someone who can help you to create a relationship that will help to heal relationships that have failed in the past.

For most people, caring for children and young people is a complex mix of high and lows. Sometimes we need help from outside the family to support mental health and wellbeing and help us find our way. If your family is struggling to navigate life, you have a child or young person in distress or you are experiencing difficulties with a new baby, psychotherapy can help make sense of thoughts, feelings and problematic behaviour, allowing a move towards better relationships, healthier behaviours and achieving potential.

Anyone can feel the need to talk through what is troubling them; the past two years have proven tough for a lot of people. From worries about getting angry to feeling like you aren't heard - therapy can help. Perhaps you want to move forwards but feel stuck, or maybe a change is proving tough to navigate. If your past won't let you go, therapy allows you to explore this and loosen the grip of the past on your present. Sometime you just need a calm, safe space to think about what really matters for you and therapy offers this opportunity to sit with someone with no agenda other than to help you.

I have worked as body therapist for 20 years now and the experience of working physically and energetically greatly complements what I have to offer as a counsellor. I go beyond of paying attention to your words, I listen to your body, your breath, how you speak and how you are in silence. In that way, I can recognise effectively the best way or tools to support your therapeutic process. I offer bilingual sessions in Brazilian Portuguese.

You might be feeling overwhelmed by all the people in your life and the things you have to do to make life feel less chaotic, less out of your control. You may have found ways of coping with this emotional turmoil which are maybe bad for you and bring quick relief for now, but the same old problems and feelings build up again in time. You would like some relief from life's pressures, some space and time to sort out who you are, why you feel this way and why things happen for you the way they do. With calmer, clearer vision of how you manage life's pressures, your life could be something you choose for yourself and enjoy more fully.

Counselling is a place to explore our thoughts, feelings and emotions. A chance to explore our life direction. An opportunity to pause and understand where we are and what is happening in our lives right now. It is a place to explore past and present events or traumas and a space to speak out loud thoughts that had previously been unspeakable.

I am a fully qualified Humanistic & Integrative Counsellor able to help you through any of lifes difficulties. Life is all about 'Relationships'. How we relate to ourselves, to others and to the world around us. In our modern fast paced and demanding world we can lose touch with who we are as an individual. We can get pulled in different directions for varying reasons, either in our personal relationships or professional. Stress, Anxiety and Depression along with life events can prevent us from realising our full potential and drag and hold us back. Trauma's at anytime in life can feel overwhelming and all consuming.

Psychodynamic Counsellors
Psychodynamic therapy in Stroud, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.
