Are you, your child or your adolescent struggling with worry, anxiety or low mood? Are you unsure how to help yourself, your child or your adolescent with their problems? Or have you experienced a traumatic event that has left you feeling stuck with life feeling very different now? Or maybe you have a phobia or sleep problem that is impacting heavily on your life. Cognitive behavioural therapy might be for you if you want to make sense of the problem you have and why you may feel stuck. CBT is a structured talking therapy which focuses on making sense of problematic connections between our thoughts, feelings and behaviour.

I understand therapy can feel really daunting and scary at times, the good news is that you are looking here to make a start. We are not designed to figure out life and all its complexities alone. We can see and experience a lot in our lives and that can have a significant impact on us. It can be exhausting but it doesn't have to be like that. You deserve happiness and emotional freedom and I can help you to achieve that. I am relational and supportive in my style and create a bespoke therapy suited for the individual using several evidence-based interventions to help people improve their psychological and emotional well-being.

Thank you for taking the time to look at my profile. We all need support in life and at times, we reach out to therapy to provide us with that support. Therapy can help us to understand complex emotions, behaviours, or to learn more about ourselves. Sometimes it is just nice to talk to someone who is hearing and feeling what is going on for you. I can offer you a non-judgemental space to explore whatever it is you need support with. Together, we can work through your fears, your difficult memories or whatever is hindering you in life.

Sometimes life can throw up unexpected challenges and we find that things that wouldn't normally bother us do. You may find yourself stuck, and unable to move forward; to make the change you so badly desire. It may be that you find yourself feeling anxious, depressed or stressed leaving you constantly worrying and struggling to sleep. Perhaps, you are having problems at work or in your relationships, or maybe you have suffered at the hands of others which impacts on your emotions and behaviours now. If any of this resonates with you, counselling can help develop the self-awareness you need and give you the tools to move you forward.

Making the first move to see a counsellor can feel like a big step, especially if this is the first time you've done it. Perhaps you feel like you’re worrying more than usual at the moment? Or maybe there is a specific issue on your mind that you can't seem to get past. Perhaps you've had enough of feeling anxious, or you're feeling low and 'stuck'. When we have the opportunity to share how we feel in a safe, confidential environment it can help us to develop a toolkit of coping strategies to deal with times when things get tough.

As an Integrative and Transpersonal psychotherapist I believe that every client that I work with has an inherent capacity to achieve happiness and fulfillment regardless of circumstances or environment. The difficulties associated with living are as numerous as there are people alive today. I believe that each individual carries the seeds of future contentment in the difficulties that they face in the present. My approach to psychotherapy seeks to harness the potential for individual wholeness by creating a safe and unjudgemental space in which clients can obtain clarity on their past and present whilst shaping a sought-after and fulfilled future.

Have you decided you would like some support and started to look into counselling and psychotherapy, but does the idea of sitting in a small windowless office whilst you explore your inner thoughts fill you with dread? Maybe outdoor therapy is for you? By being outdoors we can over come the intensity of being in a small office, it allows us to be side by side on your journey and creates a balance between us that can create a stronger therapeutic relationship. Being in nature you are surrounded by the cycles of our natural world and this can be incredibly useful during your own explorations of your cycles of behaviour.

Teen Counsellors
Adolescence can be a time of both disorientation and discovery. The transitional period can raise questions of independence and identity; as adolescents cultivate their sense of self, they may face difficult choices about academics, friendship, sexuality, gender identity, drugs, and alcohol.

Most teens have a relatively egocentric perspective on life; a state of mind that usually abates with age. They often focus on themselves and believe that everyone else—from a best friend to a distant crush—is focused on them too. They may grapple with insecurities and feelings of being judged. Relationships with family members often take a backseat to peer groups, romantic interests, and appearance, which teens perceive as increasingly important during this time.

The transition can naturally lead to anxiety about physical development, evolving relationships with others, and one's place in the larger world. Mild anxiety and other challenges are typical, but serious mental health conditions also emerge during adolescence.
