Life can often feel challenging and even overwhelming at times. The therapeutic relationship between therapist and client, once formed is a safe, warm, non judgmental space that will allow the client to explore their worries and make sense of your feelings.

The aim of therapy is to open up an exploration of the difficulties you may be facing, in a caring and sensitive way. It is a joint activity; you share what is of importance to you and that you feel ok to talk about. We look at how your difficulties connect with, and relate to, other areas of your life; your past, your relationships, your sense of identity, in a way that aims for greater self awareness, understanding and acceptance. Through exploring your concerns, your relationships and life experiences we would try to discover more helpful, compassionate ways of relating to yourself, to others and to being in the world.

Do you feel frustrated and know you are capable of doing so much more? Have you put other's needs before your own? If so, you are not alone. Many people settle for less than they are capable of. Living this way can lead to unhappiness and frustration which has a negative 'knock on effect' impacting on your relationships, career and well-being. This should not be you. Out of kindness you may think that you are helping those around you. However, if this is leaving you feeling unfulfilled and even resentful it can have a negative effect on your relationships and your health.

Hello and a warm welcome. We can experience life as easy-going, wonderful and enjoyable. However, there can be times when we struggle and find it hard to go through life or to cope with life's challenges. During these times it can be difficult to reach out and to talk to someone. This can feel quite lonely. As you are looking for a counsellor, you are taking the first step to no longer facing your difficulties on your own and to seek help. You may also seek counselling out of curiosity to understand yourself better.

I specialise in Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy (REBT) along side other integrative therapies such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy ACT), Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT) and Mindfulness. The framework my approach is built on is REBT, yet as each of us are different, I integrate the other therapies to suit individual needs. Some clients benefit more from rationalising thoughts and beliefs, some need help getting over the past, and some need help with moving forward.

If you’re feeling overwhelmed, trying to juggle work and home life, coping with lockdown, or a critical situation such as miscarriage or postnatal depression, then talking to someone who understands can boost your recovery. Feeling exhausted, intrusive thoughts, guilt, sleep disturbance and anxiety are just some of the symptoms caused by stress. Having a dedicated time and space to explore things in-depth will help you to unravel what's going on and find a positive way forward to a calmer frame of mind. You'll become more confident, discovering your own ways to effect change, regain your equilibrium - find the real you again.

You have just made the first important step for change in your life. You are about to ask for help. Perhaps you are feeling low, anxious or even just stressed. Admitting the need for a counsellor can seem daunting. However, there are times when it helps to have someone outside our immediate circle to talk to and make sense of thoughts, feelings and/or circumstances. I offer a supportive, friendly, non-judgemental and confidential space where we can think about and explore together what's troubling you. It might be something you want to change, understand, or learn to accept.

I've found that most people who come to see me are struggling with some form of anxiety or stress, low self worth and/or depression (which they quite often don't recognise until we complete an inventory!) Worrying about what people think about them, anxious about social events, stressed at work, struggling to juggle everything and taking it out on family members, angry at the injustice of it all, feeling worthless and a lack of hope and teary. These are just some of the things that are creating problems in their lives until they come to see me and we create a shift by developing a rational, helpful mindset! Changing the beliefs.

I started training to be a counsellor because I had previously been through some deeply painful times in my life and having both survived – and benefited - from that experience, I decided to dedicate myself to supporting others so they could go on the similar journey. After several years I decided to further my studies at a post-graduate level and trained to be a psychotherapist so I could work at a deeper level and this has been most helpful. I also found that I was being approached by couples who wanted help with their relationship so I decided to train in couples psychotherapy which has been incredibly useful.

It’s normal and natural for life to feel overwhelming at times. When this happens, a safe, non-judgemental atmosphere can be exactly what is needed and I aim to give my clients the space and support they need to understand the issues they face. I offer private and confidential talking therapy, with the understanding that clients may be coming to therapy without knowing where to start - this is totally fine. My role is to guide clients through this process, with empathy and acceptance.
