I work with trauma, relationship issues, general anxiety and depression, identity and LGBTQ + issues.
Hello, for many people getting in touch with a stranger to talk about the feelings that you are experiencing is a daunting thought and also the hardest part. Once you have made that decision I will try to make the process as easy as possible. I work with adults and teenagers and I can offer you a safe and comfortable space to help you make sense of your thoughts and feelings in a non judgemental environment. Therapy isn't about blaming yourself or passing responsibility it is about working together with another individual to see how you can make positive changes in your life and move forward in the way that is right for you.

I’m Izzy. I'm a queer , highly sensitive, Art Psychotherapist, Eco-Therapist and artist. I’m currently moving into a more nature-centred way of working, alongside studying Eco-Therapy with the Tariki Trust. My approach invites you to you ‘feel into’ your body and environment; to go beyond the intellectual. That could look like deepening your relationship with the outdoors or embracing your animal, instinctual self. Or it could look like exploring plant-based and sustainable art materials.

Do you feel ripped apart and shaken to your core? You don't want to be a burden to friends and can't talk to family, it is all so overwhelming. The deepest pit of despair and hurt, mixed emotions, anguish, anger, confusion, barely coping with intense non-stop life changes. Loss of family, partner or treasured friends, sudden or chronic terminal illness, loss of the person you used to be, ageing, guilty lifestyle, fear of a new job and moving, or the prickling heartache from loss of your pet. You don’t even have the strength to take the next step, to pull yourself through while trying to reach your old self. You need a safe space.

Life can be hard at times. We can experience loss, changes in our health, family circumstances or work life. Maybe our relationships are not fulfilling our needs and we do not know how to change things. At times, we don’t feel good about ourselves, we lose confidence in our ability to cope with life or maybe we feel impacted by past experiences or held back through feelings of anger, shame or guilt. Sometimes we don’t know what’s wrong, but we just know something isn’t right. I can help you explore what is going on for you by giving you a supportive space to talk and be heard.

Do you feel your relationship is stuck in a rut? That it lacks the spark it once had? Are you having the same argument over and over again? Or maybe your looking for a new relationship. Maybe you feel your sex life is lacking in some way and you have lost that intimate connection you once had. Are you struggling with the limitations Co-vid has placed upon society?

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.

Hello, I'm Matthew. Sometimes it can be too painful or difficult to face things and our attempts to escape them can cause just as much discomfort. I’ve been there, and the counselling I received was so transformative I decided to train as a therapist and dedicate myself to helping other people who are struggling — I know that things can get so much better, no matter how bad they seem.

Welcome to my profile and thank you for stopping by. I’m guessing you’re here because you think it might be time to tackle your problems. You’re tired of the status quo and would love to achieve positive change. Having worked therapeutically with people since 1999, I have lots of experience of treating a whole range of issues, and have supported many people to achieve the health and well-being they always dreamed of. Sometimes it’s hard to believe that change is possible, particularly if the problem’s been around for a long time. I’m here to tell you that, with our mutual hard work and dedication, it really is within your reach.
