Welcome. There can be times in our lives when we feel low, sad, anxious or have feelings of being unable to cope. Maybe you are struggling with a relationship, work of family related issues or have feelings of low self-esteem. Making the first step in to therapy can sometimes feel daunting but you have done this by coming to this website. Our sessions are confidential,professional,calm and can be tailored to meet your needs. We can explore how you are feeling which may allow you to reflect on making a change to your life which can improve the way we feel about ourself and others.
Seeking help can be the first step to possible emotional freedom. We all have experienced difficulties in our lives and some people are able to get through their this ok while others may need a little help. Counselling is a good way to begin. I believe working together and exploring such difficulties would be beneficial. Talking for the sake of talking is OK but talking with purpose, there is a difference.
I offer a safe, confidential and non judgemental space for you to talk freely about your life experiences. I can help you to make better sense of difficult experiences and show you effective strategies that'll help you to challenge any negative thoughts that may be preventing you from enjoying a fulfilled life. Talking about your problems may also help to lessen feelings of isolation and despair. This itself can be helpful during times of depression, anxiety or change.
It can be difficult to choose a therapist and to understand the various titles therapists go by, as well as the different types of therapies and counselling on offer. However, I personally think one of the most important factors in choosing a therapist is the fit between the client and therapist and whether the relationship feels warm and empathic. My therapeutic style is to identify and build on existing strengths and to offer a safe supportive space to explore current difficulties. Having had my own psychotherapy, I am familiar with what it feels like to be on the receiving end of therapy and I am sensitive to this during my work.
I am a counselling psychologist with over 20 years experience working with children, adults, couples and families. I use solution focused, positive therapies that get you closer to your goals and values, teaching you tools and techniques to manage your life better and live life as you need to. I work with mental health conditions - anxieties, depression, phobias, confidence issues, relationship breakdowns, smoking cessation and weight loss, just to name a few!
My ideal client or clients if they are a couple or individual are those struggling in their intimate sexual and relationship life. I see the sexual relationship with oneself and with another/others as a vital part in which the individual/s want or seek to gain expression in some form and feel differently and more connected. This expression takes many forms, some healthy and sometimes unhealthy or unclear; it depends how the person or people see or experience their actions, feelings and behaviours. I'm here to help you unpack, connect and feel empowered.
UKCP Accredited Psychotherapist and BACP Registered counsellor with over 20 years experience. I use an integrative/relational approach. This means that I view each person as unique and as such I use a coherent combination of therapeutic ideas and working relationship that will best suit you as an individual. This may involve looking at current difficulties, your past, clarifying and understanding your thoughts and behaviours and helping you to understand and express your emotions. In this way we will work together to find a way through problems that are troubling you to negotiate a more satisfying and less stressful way of living.

Are you feeling stuck? Do you know something's wrong but you're not quite sure how to fix it? Perhaps you have a rough idea, but feel like you could benefit from some external, professional support to make sense of things and learn ways to manage certain situations, ways of thinking and / or unhelpful behaviours? You do not have to go through this alone.
I’m a strong believer that, in the words of Nelson Mandela “there is no passion to be found playing small – in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living” – yet sometimes life is really quite tough and we find ourselves struggling and this ideal seems far from our reality. As COVID-19 disrupts our lives you may find yourself feeling emotionally overwhelmed, anxious, lonely, trapped and even feeling a huge sense of loss. You may have been struggling for some time and not got around to addressing it and now that something may be feeling a little bigger right now.
The focus in my private practice is on difficult relationships be that in the workplace, with friends or romantic relationships. I work with individuals and couples who are in or have been in relationships where there is control, excessive criticism, contempt or betrayal. I work with people who have tended to be more harmed by and those who have caused harm in their relationships. I help people develop a sense of compassion for themselves, building a sense of strength to advocate for their own needs in a constructive way so as to develop genuine, lasting intimacy with others.
I work with genuine care, empathy and am non- judgemental. I am very passionate about helping and offer a warm and nurturing space for you to explore your presenting issues which you may be finding challenging and distressing.
Losing someone close can make you feel you're on a rollercoaster of despair, anger, guilt - or maybe all three at once. But you don't have to go through this alone. Together, we can explore and unravel your difficult thoughts, and help you to gain clarity, and a sense of calm.
