Taking the decision to come to therapy takes courage. The next step is finding a therapist that you feel comfortable to work with. My belief is that the quality of relationship created between therapist and client is key to a successful outcome. Therefore my wish is to provide a safe and confidential space in which we can build a trusting and respectful relationship. Through carefully listening to you and the concerns that have brought you to therapy my aim is to work with you at a pace that suits your needs but also provides you with challenge when you are ready.

I have a gentle manner but I am able to understand problems. I often work with things other therapists have not been able to help completely and have therapeutic solutions to the most challenging issues. I help you understand how the past impacted you. I use a structured approach so you create therapeutic goals. TRAUMA therapy can be very helpful. RELATIONSHIP COUNSELLING -both partners spend time express their point of view and a joint agreement on how to progress the therapy. I usually set “homework” for both individuals and couples to work on between sessions. DISCOUNTS for block bookings of 5 get 6th session review free.

There are times in our lives when things just don’t feel right. You might be struggling to work out who you are and what you want or finding it hard to cope with life’s challenges – feeling stressed, unfulfilled or lonely. Maybe you've been deeply affected by specific events and loss – perhaps the death of a loved one, relationship breakdown, redundancy or illness. Is what you're experiencing affecting your relationships and behaviour and bringing on painful feelings, including anger, sadness, vulnerability, guilt and shame, sometimes leaving you anxious and depressed? Having a counsellor to turn to can help.

I am a BABCP accredited CBT/REBT therapist supporting adults with anxiety and depression. Whether anxiety is a new problem or something someone has grappled with for a long time and whether anxiety is specific such as OCD, GAD, social anxiety, panic, health anxiety and phobias or a sense of unease, the evidence-based and solution focussed approach of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy can help. I also support clients with low mood, depression and emotional problems such as anger, shame, guilt and low self esteem. Sometimes clients are not sure which way to turn or feel stuck; both CBT and REBT can help you to clarify a way forward.

We are all unique individuals. I see people who suffer from anxiety, depression, addictions, relationship difficulties and trauma as well as other difficulties. I will aim to help you make sense of what is currently going on for you and then to set goals or a way forward.. I believe that clients need to experience compassion and kindness as well as often, a structured way of working with specific difficulties. If structure is less of a goal and need, I aim to provide a settling in which trust is foremost and so creating a safe space to talk about difficult emotions.

It is common to experience emotional distress in life from time-to-time, but sometimes we need help with managing this. Difficulties can range from a general feeling of low mood or anxiety, the pressure of challenging life events such as loss or relationship-breakdown, or coming to terms with historical events. As a qualified Psychodynamic Psychotherapist, I will provide a safe and supportive environment so that you feel able to explore your current thoughts and feelings by drawing from past experiences. From here, we can try to understand their impact on your present, and consider how you might wish to move forward. ​

At various points in our lives, we all experience feelings, thoughts and events that we find challenging. You may be feeling anxious or depressed, finding it difficult to come to terms with something that has happened in the past, or worried about what the future will bring. Perhaps you feel stuck in a difficult situation, or caught between what seem like impossible choices. You may be seeking an opportunity to think about who you are, what is important to you, and the kind of life you want to lead.

Embarking on a therapeutic journey can be transformative, but it's not easy. I work with adolescents and adults, creating a safe and empathetic space where trust is nurtured. I understand the unique needs of individuals navigating complex emotions, identities, and relationships. I work intuitively and collaboratively with clients to explore their goals for therapy, whether it's navigating the challenges of adolescence, managing major life transitions, grief and loss, domestic abuse, divorce, anxiety or depression.

Female Counsellors

Does it matter what gender my therapist is?

In general, this is not an important factor, as there is no relationship between a therapist’s gender and their efficacy. Some clients, however, prefer to see therapists of a particular gender, whether due to their own past experiences with men and women, or ingrained beliefs about how people of different genders think and behave. Exploring the roots of such preferences and considering what one wants to address in therapy can help someone determine whether their therapist’s gender truly matters to them.

Should I see a female therapist?

Many people—not just women—prefer to see a female therapist, either because they believe that a woman will be able to relate to their specific challenges (for example, sexism in the workplace) or because they imagine feeling more comfortable disclosing sensitive information to a woman. Such beliefs may not turn out to be accurate, however, and adhering too rigidly to a gender preference can at times hinder a client from finding the best therapeutic match.

Do therapists get specific training to help with women’s concerns?

Therapists are trained to provide care to clients of any gender. However, some therapists—both men and women—may pursue additional training in feminist therapy, gender-specific issues, or women’s mental health. Female clients may wish to ask prospective therapists whether they have received specific training in the client’s primary area(s) of concern, or whether they have worked extensively with women on issues similar to their own.

How can I inquire about a therapist’s experience in treating women?

It’s OK—even encouraged!—to ask a therapist directly whether and how often they have treated women in the past, or whether they have treated women dealing with the client’s most prominent concern(s). Competent therapists will be happy to share their educational background, preferred treatment modalities, and prior client experience to help an individual find the therapist best suited to their needs.
