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.

Coming to therapy can be a difficult decision to make. When we are having difficulty in life our thinking can become muddled or unclear and we do things that we think might help in the short term, but can perhaps have a negative effect in the long term. This can cause us to get trapped in unhealthy cycles. You might be feeling unpleasant emotions or be trapped in a way of thinking that might be unhelpful. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) can help to unravel the complex human thoughts and emotions that sometimes contribute to being less than at our best, and find new ways of thinking and being to move forward.

Everybody experiences life differently and sometimes it helps to have support to make sense of what is happening for you. Perhaps you have had a bereavement, loss or other change in your life? Or maybe you feel stuck and you are not quite sure why you feel this way? Life can sometimes be challenging. Events in the present or the past can trigger unwanted thoughts or overwhelming feelings and it is not always easy to talk to family or friends about what’s going on for you. I can support you to explore how you feel, suggesting ways to cope with difficult feelings and to clarify what is important to you.

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.

Hello, I work with younger adults aged 18-30 and offer support with anxiety, social anxiety, depression and low self esteem. Early adulthood can be a time of great change in your life and also a point at which you might want to pause and consider: what is getting in the way of me living life fully? I offer a quiet space, away from your day to day life, where you will have the time to fully explore your past and current experiences, thoughts and feelings. My role is to help you to come to know yourself better, so that you then feel more able to manage the issues you are facing and live your life fully.
