Counselling is very normal, and completely transformational at the same time. I offer you a safe, confidential space to be you. Here we can explore what is troubling you, what's working for you and what isn't; who you are, and what you want out of life. Give yourself the time to simply sit down, breathe and talk freely. I am a warm, thoughtful, sensitive, and empathic therapist, and I bring compassion, intuition, creativity, humour, and an eye for life’s details into my practice. Alongside my formal training I draw from a broad life experience including motherhood, travel, a career in cake design, and my own therapeutic journey.

Sometimes life is tough and we find ourselves struggling to make sense of things which can be a lonely and confusing experience. I believe that counselling can benefit anyone who has become tired of walking along a trodden path. That path can feel endless with a willingness to persist for longer than we would like. A warm welcome is assured. I am easily accessible in Kendal town centre with the benefit of private parking for the duration of our sessions should you wish to use it. I am ready to come on your journey as your therapeutic companion and we can tackle the obstacles together until we reach your more peaceful destination.

Sometimes it all just feels too much. Maybe you are overwhelmed with anxiety and exhausted with trying to be someone you are not. You might be a parent, struggling to help your child through mental health issues and seek a different way of being, in order to feel more calm and focused. You might be looking to learn more about what being autistic means for you, or be wanting to heal from a painful past that did not celebrate who you are. If so, counselling may be a path to help empower you, to make the changes you need and rediscover your sense of self.

I am a qualified Person-Centred psychotherapist and clinical supervisor. I will provide you a non judgemental, accepting and empathic environment, where we can look more closely at the distress you are feeling and how it is impacting your life. We will explore what your needs are and with that your decisions and potential for growth can become clearer and more fully formed. By creating a trusting therapeutic relationship, we can navigate your thoughts, feelings and experiences (past and present) to better understand how they have worked together to form your understanding of who you are and how you perceive yourself in the world.

What makes me unique is the eclectic learning experiences I have had on my way to becoming a psychotherapist in my 50's. So I have a big tool box and draw on many different approaches to enable you to make sense of your current issues in the light of your past experiences so that you have more freedom to make changes and choose the life course you really want. I am trauma informed, developmentally minded and brain based, but I also account for the power of the human spirit to overcome the past and to live fulfilled and abundant lives.

Are you somebody who wants to prioritise your health and wellbeing but something keeps standing in your way? Maybe you want to focus on exercise and fitness or learning ways to manage stress. Or you might feel ready to make changes to the balance of life e.g. work/home/family/friends. Our thoughts and emotions can sometimes act as barriers to us living the lives we want. For example, feelings of shame, self criticism, perfectionism as well as low mood, stress and anxiety can all influence the way we behave and at times take us away from the people we want to be. This is where I come in.

I’m an Integrative Relational Psychotherapist with over 25 years of experience. The essence of my practice is 'person-centred' in that I am always led by the client's needs as presented to me. In this way 'therapy' is always grounded in the trans-formative power of trusting and collaborative relationships. Our work together should then stand as an open invitation to go beyond our sense of limitation and to help establish a greater sense of well-being, meaningful identity and purpose.

I am an experienced counsellor and psychotherapist who works with adults in person or online. My approach is informal and relaxed. I don’t make judgements or tell you what you should do or think.

I help you to find meanings, identify patterns, and explore your choices. I support you to think about yourself more compassionately and clearly; strengthen your sense of who you are and better understand your relationships. An approach confirmed by current research to aid positive change.
