In our work I will invite you to be curious, to allow deeper feelings to surface and to explore them with me as a reliable, resilient companion. I believe that togerther, allowing our creativity and imagination free rein, we can find a place of calm in the turbulence. A place where you can come to accept things you cannot change, have compassion for your most vulnerable self and hopeful growth towards your true whole self. I work in an integrative style, which means I can draw on different approaches within psychotherapy to build a working alliance personalised to you while also drawing on my own inner responses and felt sense.

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.

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.

With over 25 years of experience, ranging from addiction through to sexual and emotional abuse, anxiety, depression, anger and numbness, I'd like to support you. In recent years I have moved my work focus to integrating Internal Family Systems (IFS) as I find this way of working empowering to the client, engaging and highly effective. It may be you hear a loud critical voice inside or joy and fun may be fleeting or missing, you might like to access them again (or for the first time!). If your goal is a compassionate, connected, creative Self then maybe Internal Family systems be what you are looking for in therapy.

As a clinical psychologist, I work with children, young people and adults to explore and develop a shared understanding of how their experiences and circumstances - past and present - may be contributing to current difficulties, before identifying possible solutions to help alleviate distress. By drawing on different therapeutic approaches, models and techniques, I am able to provide a flexible and tailored service where sometimes the process of talking openly can in itself be transformative as new meanings and stories emerge, while at other times specific skills and strategies are used to create positive change and difference.
