I work with adults and young people with various presenting difficulties such as anxiety, OCD , phobias, stress, trauma, depression, anger, loss, low self esteem, self harm, relationship problems and abuse. Counselling is a process people seek when they want changes in their life. It can help us to understand and have better clarity of our thoughts, emotions and behaviours. Let me ask you…Are you feeling stuck? Do you want to feel happier? Are you feeling overwhelmed? Are you feeling lost or hopeless? Are you battling with your inner critic? Do you want to heal from your past? If so let’s start your journey to discovering a new you.

OCD .
Hi. At times we are challenged in life and we may need help to work through the issues that can affect us. Whatever we are experiencing, it can impact on our whole life greatly. At times admitting we need help can be a long and hard journey. Just getting to this point of looking for a therapist means you’ve addressed so much already and that you wish to take the next step. It's finding the right therapist for you, just like any other relationship is how you connect that enables you to feel safe and be open so you can work through your issues. So take your time to find the right one as that relationship can help you so much.

I can help with a range of problems such as depression, sleep issues, phobia, trauma, anxiety, panic attacks and OCD .
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 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.

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.

It starts with a hello...but I know that starting the conversation can be difficult at times. Life brings its share of challenges but no one needs to suffer in isolation. I am here to walk this journey with you, so you can become a better version of yourself. I am a firm believer that not everyone experiences even the same issue the same way. Therefore, being flexible in dealing with the differing needs of clients, is a necessary skill I have honed over the years.

The hardest thing is to take that first step and figure out what’s happening in your life, to trust someone with what you’re going to tell them, your most private thoughts or feelings or what’s happened to you. Yet, you deserve to live a life that leaves you excited to wake up every morning, free of emotional pain and distress. Your story is not trivial, and I’m ready to listen and help you to find the answers you need and support you with the appropriate coping mechanisms.

I am an Integrative Counsellor, this means that I can alter my way of working to better suit my client's personal needs. Working this way means that I can bring different skills and theories into session that I feel my client may benefit from rather sticking to just one counselling theory. I believe that a counselling journey needs to as unique as the person embarking on it. The aim of my counselling service is to help people work towards a brighter future, one step at a time. When working on your mental health, people think of this long scary process, what I aim to do is break this journey down into steps, keeping you in control.

Most clients contact us with surface negative symptoms or challenges. Every client is totally unique, therefore our truly one-off, made-to-measure approach is needed and always provided. Most clients help us to slowly identify the real current trigger(s), creating the negative presenting symptoms or challenges. Finally, our last step in helping you gain a positive, confident and happier future, is to discover your deepest root causes, which created the very first trigger(s). To put it simply, our driving force from day one is to help you quickly ensure you gain much improved: thinking, feeling and behaviour.

Obsessive-Compulsive (OCD) Counsellors
Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is an anxiety disorder in which people have unwanted and repeated thoughts, feelings, ideas, sensations (obsessions), or behaviours that make them feel driven to do something (compulsions). It affects children, kids, teens and adults. Often the person carries out the behaviours to get rid of the obsessive thoughts, but this only provides temporary relief. Not performing the obsessive rituals can cause great anxiety. A person's level of OCD can be anywhere from mild to severe, but if severe and left untreated, it can destroy a person's capacity to function at work, at school or even to lead a comfortable existence in the home.
