I’m an experienced counsellor working in a Person-Centred way, using Narrative Therapy alongside other creative ways of working. I have over 16 years experience of working with adults, children, young people and families. I have found that working with compassion and empathy, to support a deeper more embodied understanding of our responses to difficult situations is a powerful and healing way of working for many people and can lead to deep change. I believe that we all have potential for becoming unstuck and that there is always a possibility of listening to ourselves with greater compassion and self-acceptance.

Children and Young People have many issues which they cannot always express and understand their feelings, as adults sometimes can. Issues can range from parents splitting up, school problems, exam stress and pressure, friendship issues, witnessing domestic abuse or sexual abuse. The lists can be endless. My job is to creatively work with the child or young person to explore what their issues are and help build up self esteem and track their goals in therapy in creative ways.

Not being understood is one of the most painful feelings. Struggling to relate to others, or live in this complicated world is so difficult for so many of us. Making sense of ourselves and finding solutions to longstanding issues – from depression, anxiety, social phobias, low self-esteem, anger management, bereavement, life-stage issues, loss, marital difficulties, relationship struggles, self-harming and suicide and unresolved childhood development challenges? You need not struggle alone; we can explore and discover what choices you have to make changes to your life's personal challenges.

I understand that just because an issue may be smaller than others it doesn’t make it less important to want to work on and change. Common issues such as anxiety and depression still need a tailored approach and respect that everyone is effected differently and manages in many ways. Sleep and eating issues derived from this or particular times in your life. Relationships and refelections- recognising a change YOU want to make or exploring thoughts and feelings shared by others. I have in depth experience working with suicidal ideation and a robust safety plan with structured sessions- I treat all issues with empathy and respect

I am here for you when talking really helps. There is something amazing about being listened to and heard by another, and it is rare in our busy lives. Telling your story, often for the first time, can help to unlock what is stopping you living your life to the full. I will listen to you without judgement, accept and support you to make changes you want to make. You may be challenged to look at things differently. I can help you see things more clearly, look at your difficulties and find ways to make changes in your life. You may want to talk about problems happening now or from earlier in your life. Either way I am here for you.

Everyone faces challenges, dilemmas, fears, problems and issues in their lives. Sometimes we can manage to cope. Sometimes our usual coping methods don't seem to work. We find ourselves struggling and we need someone to talk to, someone who will listen and to somewhere we can talk about our feelings and thoughts and to explore opportunities for change - to get our lives back on track again.

Life is challenging at times. You may feel very alone with upsetting thoughts and feelings, feel stuck, blocked or unsettled. There may be things you need to say, but you can't find the words or a trusted person to say them to, and that's painful. Taking the step to talk a counsellor is an excellent way get some relief and be really heard. It's a process, which maybe sooner, rather than late, help you feel less stuck, a bit more confident, a bit more empowered and a bit more resolved.

At times life can feel overwhelming and we can get to a point where we can feel stuck and need help to make sense of it all. This is where therapy can help you overcome issues that may have a negative impact on your life. I provide a safe confidential space for you to feel heard in a non-judgemental environment, which allows you to explore your feelings at your own pace. Together we can find ways to help deal with the difficulties you are experiencing; help you make sense of your thoughts and feelings and help you find your own way forward. I believe the most important element of therapy is to build a trusting relationship.

Overcome your Past & Fears, Find Self-Compassion & Resilance, and Flourish. The search for a contented and satisfying life is not easy. It’s even more difficult if you’re wrestling with a negative inner voice or baggage from your past. Perhaps you’ve forgotten what real joy or feeling safe is like? I understand. It’s not your fault. It’s because you have a tricky human brain with a sensitive threat system, that can tie you up in knots trying to cope.

Attachment-based Counsellors

Is attachment-based therapy the same as attachment therapy?

Attachment-based therapy may be confused with what is called “attachment therapy” (sometimes called “holding therapy”), a discredited and dangerous approach to treating children with attachment disorders, autism, or other mental health concerns. Attachment therapy—not attachment-based therapy—may involve restraining a child, forcing eye contact, and other coercive or abusive techniques. None of these practices are used in attachment-based therapy and the two modalities are in no way related.

What should I expect from attachment-based therapy?

Attachment-based therapy is based on attachment theory, which posits that children’s early relationships with their caregivers strongly influence their ability to navigate the world later in life. Thus, adults who seek attachment-based therapy should expect to deeply explore their childhood, identifying the dynamics or experiences that disrupted their attachment and the steps necessary to overcome challenges that arose as a result. Parents and children should expect to explore the possible factors that disrupted the parent-child relationship and work toward restoring trust and connection.

How long does attachment-based therapy last?

Certain forms of attachment-based therapy, especially those designed for parents and children, last for a set number of sessions; for example, Attachment and Biobehavioural Catch-Up, a specific attachment-based approach for young children who have undergone early adversity, unfolds over 10 one-hour sessions. When attachment-based therapy is practiced on adults or combined with other modalities, it may not last a specific length of time; clients may wish to ask prospective therapists how long they expect treatment to take.

Does attachment-based therapy work?

Most of the research on attachment-based therapy focuses on children and adolescents. Some of this research shows a positive effect, especially for attachment-based family therapy (ABFT). Other studies, however, have found that attachment-based therapy is no more effective than other approaches to childhood depression, anxiety, or suicidality. Less is known about the therapy’s efficacy on adult populations.
