Life can be difficult for many reasons. Feeling vulnerable, alone or lost, not knowing how to cope, and maybe the fear of talking about it? Whatever is getting you down you don't have to struggle alone. Destructive patterns of behaviour can be changed, emotional issues recalibrated to enable a new focus. I am interested in hypnotherapy approaches in psychoneuroimmunology (PNI); the relationship between immunity, the endocrine system, and the central and peripheral nervous systems in my hypnosis therapy work with cancer patients for emotional distress, anxiety and depression, as mental health support as complimentary care.
Are you (or your child) facing difficult life situations, feeling in pain or are low and distressed? Or maybe there are issues and areas in your life that you wish to change or develop? Life can be really challenging, but seeking counselling can help you gain further insight into your situations, choices and sense of who you are so that you can find the best way forward for you. As a BACP registered person-centred counsellor, I can offer you a warm,relaxed, confidential space where you can explore whatever thoughts and feelings you choose to, all at your own pace and without fear of judgement.
Are you, your child or family struggling with difficult emotions and experiences? Maybe you feel overwhelmed, anxious or depressed. If that sounds familiar counselling or psychotherapy could be right for you. I have been working with children, young people and families for over 13 years in a variety of settings including children's centres, schools, children's homes and charities and have extensive experience of working with developmental and relational trauma, domestic violence and attachment difficulties. I provide short and long term psychotherapy for individuals and families via face-to-face or online sessions.

I share experiences with the least, the lost, the last, the left out and the left behind. I lived experiences with diverse groups and am well-traveled so I understand many cultures and ethnicities. I am a survivor of many forms of abuse including domestic violence, verbal, emotional, physical and sexual, and I believe in speaking truth to power. I am a Christian Pastoral Counseling therapist and I believe in building your faith system in order to cope with pressures that society places upon us on a daily basis. I believe that hurt people hurt people but healed people can help heal others and that is my goal in therapy.
My main concern within therapy is that you feel safe, seen and listened to. This is why I offer a non-judgmental, compassionate approach to helping you overcome those issues that are hindering your happiness. We will work together to identify what you need and how we can help fulfill that in a way that encourages you to move towards happiness and health.
You have taken the first step of looking for help. How can I help you? Has your life been turned upside down due to a traumatic event? Does anxiety, panic attacks, stress, anger, depression holding you back? Is pain getting you down? A death of a special someone, family, friend, a fur baby or even yourself along the way and you are grieving their loss? When a traumatic incident or an abusive relationship leaves you feeling all alone, isolated and don't know what to do. How to get your life back and nothing is going right, you just want to feel heard. You want to feel normal but there is no normal, just the fear of the unknown.
I am on extended leave from 25/08/2022 to 25/10/2022. All enquiries will be responded to after this time. I am a fully qualified and registered Person Centred Therapeutic Counsellor with experience in working with a broad range of client issues. I work with individuals and couples to explore thoughts, feelings and behaviours, and what changes they want to make. My private practice in Rushden is based in a beautiful garden room that provides a comfortable and private space in which to meet. There is off-road parking and full accessibility.
I work with adolescents and adults who would like to understand themselves better and who may need some help with managing their emotions and their day to day lives, improving their relationships, getting relief from symptoms of trauma and improving their self esteem and confidence. I also work with anxiety, phobias and functional pain/conditions. I can offer coaching to individuals to improve performance or to help them work towards making changes in specific areas of their life. I can also offer supervision to other professionals/organisations. I have a special interest in trauma informed care-training and implementation.
I am a registered, accredited and qualified counsellor and psychotherapist. I offer therapy on ways to cope with various life challenges such as:- self-harm, confidence issues, low self- esteem, depression, anxiety, bereavement, behavioural issues, sensory and anger management. I respect clients’ views; I am non-judgemental in my approaches and I always maintain confidentiality. The sessions are mostly client led. I believe in giving each client the opportunity to express themselves in ways they feel comfortable. This helps to facilitate the client's progress and recovery.
It's OK not to be OK! Many of us experience low mood, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, loss and are victims of trauma, sexual abuse and more. These experiences can have an huge impact on our daily lives. We are living through pressing times but remember, your mental health is important. It is really difficult to talk about you feel and what you have experienced in life. I am able to adapt and tailor sessions to your individual needs. Please reach out.
Life, at times, can be really difficult. Sometimes we get stuck in a place that feels so uncomfortable. We may struggle to manage those feelings or we feel like things will never change. Maybe you’re struggling with anxiety, depression, low self esteem, work, home or relationship difficulties. Maybe you’ve experienced some trauma or abuse or maybe you’ve learnt to cope with self harm. Maybe these have brought struggles with your sleeping or eating patterns. Wherever your difficulties may lie ........let me offer you a safe and comfortable place to explore and learn to manage those struggles.
Serendipity Psychology is a social enterprise of clinical psychologists established by Dr Lauren Sayers. Our team of specialists are able to work with a variety of complex issues in children, young people and adults and help individuals, couples and families. Just some of the issues we work with include: anxiety; depression; personality difficulties; PTSD and trauma; autistic spectrum disorder (ASD) and; eating disorders. Our goals are to reduce the symptoms of these difficulties and increase the amount of time our clients feel relief from challenging emotions, quickly enhancing their quality of life.
Are you the person feeling the words are not enough to express your emotions? Have you always been attracted to visual, colour, image or imagination? I offer deepening of the therapeutic impact with the use of creativity, which existed before humans learned to talk. I meet you where you are and we will take it from there. I worked with clients struggling with depression, anxiety, trauma, abuse, lack of self esteem, identity issues and self harm- both adults and young people. You may need to reach beyond language to describe and explore the chaos inside and then move towards the shift of transformation.
With 20 yrs Counselling and Psychology experience, I now seek to work with two main client groups. 1) Clients who've already reached a deeper understanding of their issues, symptoms & diagnoses (via therapy &/or self-help etc), but have found that these insights have not been sufficient to end their psychological suffering. And 2) Parents/carers/educators struggling with youngsters who can be violent, self-destructive &/or very defiant. These clients have found that traditional reward & punishment approaches fail to solve (or indeed actually escalate) the problem and are looking for an effective, trauma-sensitive alternative.
I believe life skills are important in making us the person we are: and feel mine have enhanced my ability to understand and support children, young people and adults in an empathetic and non-judgemental way. Because I have worked with the elderly and Children and Young People from birth to 25 years of age in a professional and voluntary capacity for over forty years I can help you the overwhelming challenges of daily life that may cause anxiety and/or depression. This can also be affected by past trauma, sometimes without us realising. More recently that trauma might be about getting back to a 'post-covid' form of normality'.
As your therapist, I will help you to make sense of your present circumstances and encourage you to "unmuddle" and organise your thoughts and feelings. I may need to work pyscho-dynamically, helping you to understand in which ways your past shapes and affects your present condition, helping you to confront, explore and find healing from your past. In order to move towards your future, I will enable you to set realistic goals, make informed choices and put together useful strategies to overcome your problems, to take reasonable action, to evaluate and reassess your actions and maintain positive changes in every area of your life.
Admitting you might need the help of a counsellor can be incredibly hard and taking that first step requires lots of courage - I am pleased you are here. I work with adults and young people (18 and over) on issues relating to anxiety, depression, grief and loss (especially complicated grief - an ongoing, heightened state of mourning that keeps you from healing), race identity issues and have worked for a number of years supporting families with a diagnosis in their children of autism spectrum condition.
For the last 15 years I have worked extensively with individuals, families, couples and young people. My approach is integrative which means I draw on a number of therapeutic models to help tackle the complex needs that clients can present with. I am able to work with families, individuals and couples who are feeling ‘stuck’ and cannot see a way forward. I can be flexible in terms of appointments. I have an interest in attachments which can have a huge effect on how individuals manage their everyday lives.
