I can provide you with a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment to slow down and take a look within. A place to reflect on and talk about your current situation alongside a thoughtful, empathic and experienced BACP registered counsellor. I believe that although we cannot change what has happened, it’s possible to see events differently; no longer being controlled by the past but instead using it as a means of understanding compassionately why the present might look or feel as it does. From here, together, we can explore how the future could be different for you.

I work with adults and young people (16+). My clients come for a range of reasons. I have experience working in a range of settings with clients who have different goals/needs. However, most of my experience is with clients who have experienced trauma. Usually this work is around supporting clients to work through or process the things that cause them distress, and exploring what living more fully or meaningfully looks like, so that they are less impacted by things that have happened in the past. I welcome all enquiries, and I welcome students and trainee therapists.

With much understandable anxiety, overwhelm, depression, loss and sadness at this time, I offer a caring, safe, confidential, supportive and non-judgemental space to explore whatever brings you to therapy at this time. Alongside you, I may work towards enabling a surer sense of yourself; safely working with relationship issues (in the past or present); to understand life-changes (e.g. divorce/separation/retirement/identity issues/ bereavement and loss); and in working traumatic moments or life-events. I offer short and longer term work. Each session can potentially discover something new as a spur to growth and healing.

I have worked extensively with clients who have suffered trauma, bereavement and cross cultural issues. I have collaborated with the police, military, NHS, survivors of Genocide and lived in a developing country. Often issues leave the individual feeling alone and struggling to move forward. The therapeutic relationship provides a safe confidential space to explore the struggles and enable the individual. Counselling can change lives and offer hope.

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.

There are many reasons why people come to therapy. It may be a major life crisis or a specific issue, or it may be that you are struggling with day-to-day life and would value someone to talk to and gain clarity. I understand that asking for help can be daunting; I also know that seeking counselling may be the first (big!) step to a happier future. I will work at your pace and the work we do will be collaborative. I believe that the relationship between us (me, the counsellor and you, the client) is crucial to successful therapy and I will strive to build a safe and trusting environment in which you feel able to open up.

There are times in life when we feel like we’ve been knocked out of shape and we don’t know how to feel better. We can feel out of control and struggle to cope. It could be that we suspect difficult experiences in the past are affecting our lives now or that a relationship is caught in a never-ending loop. This is all normal and it happens to us all, often many times throughout life. It’s so important that we can ask for help without feeling ‘like a failure’ or that spending money and time on ourselves is self-indulgent. On the contrary, counselling can be the best investment we ever make – for ourselves and also for those we love.
