Have you ever felt that nobody really gets you? Have you ever been thinking I just do not fit in? If only someone would understand you! I know how lonely that can feel. When we find ourselves making the same mistakes over and over again despite following advice from our family or friends, its time to reach out to someone who can give you a better understanding why do we make the choices we make and how can we break the cycle of bad decisions.

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.

I work with addiction, compulsive behaviors and trauma. I can support you to look at behaviors such as alcohol and drug use, relationships patterns and sex addictions. Any activity taken to an excess which the person starts to find is taking over their life at a cost of other things in life such as friends, family, work may be looked at in a similar way. I can guide you to look into reasons why certain coping mechanisms began and support you to make desired changes. I can also support you to look at symptoms of complex trauma (CPTSD) Anxiety, Depression, attachment and relational issues.
