I am experienced in working with trauma, dissociation, anxiety and post-traumatic stress, sexual violence and domestic abuse, low self esteem, depression, loss and grief.
There are times when many of us feel we could benefit from emotional support and although making that first step to see a counsellor can seem enormous, it is a really positive step as talking in confidence to a professional counsellor can help bring clarity and healing and give you much needed support during a painful or anxious time. Counselling can help you make sense of your emotions and responses and empower you to make changes in your life. It facilitates the freedom to talk openly and confidentially, in a place where you will be really listened to.

When life gets tough we can find ourselves feeling stressed, anxious and overwhelmed. At these times talking to someone else can be helpful to make sense of what is going on. Perhaps you are experiencing loss or bereavement, or a significant transition in your home, work or relationships. Living with uncertainty and change can stir up uncomfortable feelings in us like anxiety , depression, anger or sadness. Whatever is going on for you, I can provide you with the time and space to think things through, and together we will work to make sense of what is going on and find a way forward.

I can also help you explore loss associated with other big changes such as parenthood, separation or divorce and career changes or other difficult issues such as anxiety , stress or depression brought on by relationship problems or work.
When someone you love dies, particularly at the moment, it can be life changing. Every day can suddenly feel like a struggle. Life can feel pointless and overwhelming. Friends and family want to help but they are often struggling with their own grief or do not know what to say or do for the best. I can provide a safe, confidential space for you to explore your thoughts, feelings and memories around your loved one so that you can come to terms with your bereavement whilst also gaining a better understanding of yourself, your emotions and patterns of behaviour, allowing you to make better choices and decisions going forward.

The first contact may feel a little anxiety provoking, and it is perfectly normal to experience a little worry about it.
I am a relational integrative therapist. This means that you and I work in partnership to navigate a way to support you to face whichever challenges you would like to overcome. Sometimes this can be achieved through short-term work (up to 12 weeks) and sometimes a contract for much longer work will be what you need. The development of relationship between me (the therapist), and you (the client) is the driving force of how I work. Through the development of a trusted alliance we can begin to explore any vulnerabilities you bring safely in order to make sense of them together.

COUNSELLING CAN HELP YOU TELL YOUR STORY… Our lives shape our stories… Sometimes these stories cause us to feel anxious, depressed, stressed, sad or confused. At times our life stories can make us feel stuck, frightened or even lead to trauma. Sometimes we are unsure why we experience difficulties in our relationships whether personal or professional. Counselling can help you make sense of why you think, feel and act as you do. It can bring insight into patterns of relating and ways of being. It can empower you to set goals and make changes to move your life forward. Telling your story can promote growth and healing.

Anxiety Counsellors

What are the most common treatments for anxiety?

Talk therapy, particularly cognitive behavioural therapy, is the most common treatment for anxiety. Studies have shown it is equally effective as medication. Other popular forms of therapy are popular, depending on a patient’s experience. Exposure therapy, for instance, can be useful for people dealing with fears and phobias, or who have experienced traumatic events. Dialectical Behavioural Therapy may be useful for patients who need help with emotion regulation. Anxiolytic medications, like benzodiazepines, can also help with calming a person enough to focus on the skills they’ve learned, and physical exercise has been shown to help symptoms of anxiety across the board.

How long does therapy for anxiety take to work?

The amount of time needed to alleviate symptoms depends on the severity of a person’s condition. Some therapies may take 5-20 weekly sessions to show results. Anti-depressant medications typically take two to four weeks before a benefit is felt. Anti-anxiety medications are felt typically within 20-30 minutes. Medications are best used to offer a patient a better headspace in which to work on techniques learned in therapy. Exercise, improved sleep habits, and meditation are effective, but takes weeks or months to show results.

When should I seek treatment for anxiety?

Everyone feels anxious at times, but when anxiety causes disruption to your daily life, it may be time to seek help. Such disruption can be mental, physical, or both: having fear dominate your thoughts, avoiding situations or objects that bring on feelings of anxiety, or experiencing shortness of breath, sweating, dizziness, or panic attacks. When these symptoms are recurrent and distressing, it may be time to talk to someone.

How effective is treatment for anxiety?

Treatment for anxiety has been shown to be moderately to highly effective, according to a large body of psychology studies and analyses. For some people, treatment using CBT or exposure therapy alone is effective. Others respond best to a combination of medication and therapy.
