I specialise in stress, anxiety, depression, and trauma (specifically childhood trauma including PTSD & Complex PTSD ).
I understand how difficult even contemplating seeking a counsellor or psychotherapist can be, to seek someone you trust, who will not judge you, and at the same time help you feel heard and understood. It is my job to help you feel safe and secure in therapy and I do this by being open about how I work, to hold the space for you so that you can bring your difficulties to counselling, and listening to what you want to achieve. I am here to listen with empathy, It is important that you receive the therapy that is right for you; everyone is an individual with their own individual needs.

Are you feeling anxious, overwhelmed or worried ? Perhaps your mood has been low for a while and you can’t seem to shift that feeling. Sometimes life events such as losing a loved one, relationship break-ups, family problems or work issues can leave us feeling helpless. Perhaps you are considering help to untangle your thoughts. Maybe you think a lot about things that have happened in the past that still affect you. Sometimes there may be a sense that life is lacking in meaning and direction. We can all lose sight of who we really are and what we want from life.

For 20 years I have trained in and practiced several effective self development and psychotherapeutic approaches, all of which support healing and change. I have worked within the NHS with adults with high levels of mental and emotional difficulties as well as more recently with families, children and adolescents with low to moderate difficulties in anxiety, low mood and behaviour difficulties. My work ranges from a long term psychodynamic approach to short term trauma based EMDR. Both will increase your awareness of how past experience can create unhelpful patterns in our present. Both can transform in a gentle and safe way.

With 20 years experience as a Counsellor & 10 years as an Art Psychotherapist within various NHS, Education and Community-based services, I've since specialised in EMDR therapy and am now an Accredited Practitioner with the EMDR Association UK & Ireland. Although EMDR is widely recognised as a trauma-focused therapy, it can effectively treat a broad range of issues, often in a relatively short-term time-frame. EMDR helps process intense emotions, self-limiting beliefs & behavioural patterns in the present which seem stuck on repeat, as they often track back to distressing or overwhelming relational-issues or life events in the past.

I know the past couple of years have been really difficult times for everybody and there have been many changes in how we meet and talk to each other. Certainly in EMDR treatment, we have had to make rapid changes in how we think and work in order to remain available to those in need. My own experience in working online with life's complex and diverse difficulties has found that positive and effective work can equally be achieved via video sessions and has enabled me to work with so many who would otherwise find difficulty in travelling perhaps due to time, distance, work or other factors.

Are you feeling down, struggling with depression and/or anxiety, pretending everything is OK when it's not? Do you have the sense that life has passed you by, that you lack purpose and drive? Maybe you've lost that sense of self, suffer low self-esteem or feel that you just don't belong? Are you struggling with trauma/past abuse or feel isolated, anxious and lonely? Perhaps you have relationship difficulties or health issues that are getting you down? Maybe you're elderly or stuck at home, feeling forgotten? These are all good reasons to access counselling and help you move forward in life. I look forward to hearing from you.

Through therapy you can find out things about yourself that will help you understand what is going on for you and help to develop your own understanding and gradually learn more about your innermost parts and lead the way to greater acceptance of yourself. This is awareness and will help you feel more empowered to choose to do things differently. I believe this work is about being true to yourself rather than being who you think you 'should' be and to reclaim those parts of you that have been denied. It is both challenging and rewarding work leading to emotional healing and growth.

Too many people still think they need to "suffer in silence". There's a strongly-held belief, especially among men, that it's not OK to talk about emotions, about problems in relationships, or about those moments when we feel overwhelmed. I've worked with many clients who come to counselling as a last resort, not really believing it can help them. But thousands of people out there have found that talking does make a difference. If you've been wondering whether it could make a difference for you, contact me for an introductory appointment, to see whether counselling is right for you.

Need a breath of fresh air? Change of scenery?

Over the years I have supported all kinds of people with a wide variety of things they find difficult and we can decide together if I am the right person and this is the right thing for you.
