Life can feel tough and challenging at times. This may be following a specific life event, a change of circumstance, or for reasons completely unexpected or unknown. When we are struggling with something difficult we can often feel unhappy, confused, anxious or overwhelmed, with a sense of feeling stuck and unsure of where to start or what to do. Whatever your reason for accessing therapy, I believe that we all have the capacity for change and positive personal growth and that counselling can support you to bring about the change you want by helping you to find ways of placing yourself back in control.

Life can sometimes seem a real struggle. You may be feeling vulnerable and that things are getting out of control. Has life become too difficult and challenging? Are you stuck and unable to move forward? It can be really difficult to ask for help and be seen as a weakness, so it takes courage to take that leap. I can offer you support through counselling, providing a safe, confidential and supportive space, to explore your difficulties. Counselling is a process of gaining a better understanding of yourself, that will help you to make choices and feel more freedom to find ways to move forward.

Life can be difficult, full of uncertainties and challenges, which can naturally leave us at times feeling distressed, overwhelmed, confused or alone. When we are feeling high levels of stress or anxiety it can be difficult to make sense of what is happening to us or how to move forward, sometimes it can be completely debilitating and frightening. At times we simply need space to explore a situation, a relationship or our sense of self. Whatever your reason for seeking therapy at this time, I would like to offer you a safe, compassionate space to explore what you need to and help you find a way forward that feels right for you.

As a humanistic integrative counsellor, I love helping individuals reconnect with their authentic selves, become more self-accepting, heal and achieve personal growth. We all face challenges that test our emotional resilience. There are times when these challenges become too overwhelming and you may be finding it difficult to bounce back from your problems. Recognizing that you aren’t coping well with your challenges and emotional discomfort is a significant step to healing and asking for help can be highly rewarding. Instead of facing your problems alone, counselling can help you work through your issues more effectively.

Psychologist, HCPC - Clin. Psych.
Verified
I have a particular interest in working with individuals who are experiencing intrusive thoughts and difficult feelings around death (their own or others). This experience is commonly known as death anxiety or thanatophobia. The foundation also specialises in working with people experiencing related difficulties such as being preoccupied by issues of transcience, impermanence, change, ageing and loss. They may also be afflicted by a sense of purposelessness or meaninglessness. People experiencing such difficulties to a significant degree might be said to be experiencing existential or philosophical OCD.

Feeling like you are the only person in the world with your thoughts, feelings or behaviours can leave you feeling pretty lonely and isolated from society making a perfect breeding ground for depression and anxiety, it can make you constantly question your identity and leave you comparing yourself to others around you.

Do you find that there's too much going on in your head to think straight? losing sleep and not feeling like yourself? Perhaps you're struggling with something current, perhaps the past is holding on? Maybe you're not even sure what the problem is? I aim to offer you a safe and independent space with a trusting relationship where we can explore what you're going through without judegement or expectation. My philosophy is to support others in supporting themselves and I find what helps people is a warm, empathic and neutral space with a person you feel confident sharing the parts of your life that feel vulnerable, safely.

I believe counselling is a collaborative process, a safe space for you to explore your thoughts, feelings and experiences, without judgement. It may feel right now that you want someone to fix things for you, however I believe we can work through your current issues and reflect on your past experiences towards lasting change. We will start by exploring what brought you to therapy and what you hope to gain from this experience. You may feel overwhelmed and unable to see how you can create effective change in your life. Through awareness and a deeper understanding, we will work towards increasing your self esteem and confidence.
