Are you looking to make sense of things or heal from painful events? You might be experiencing intense feelings, unwanted thoughts or images, or struggling in your parenting, relationships or work. Perhaps your coping strategies are getting in the way of the life you want to lead. You are not alone. I see psychological distress as our brains doing their best to cope with a challenging world. Together we can understand why your brain and body is coping in this way and reach out to those parts of you that are struggling.

Have you noticed that certain patterns seem to repeat in your life? Perhaps in how you feel internally across different situations, or in your interactions with others, or perhaps you feel stuck and don’t quite know what’s going on, or how you might move forward? You may have thought to yourself “try harder”, or “others can do it, why can’t I?”, or even believe something is “wrong” with you that’s keeping you from the life you wish to live. Whilst these thoughts are shared by many, they aren’t entirely accurate, and therapy with me might help make sense of things, talk through your struggles, and find different ways to move forward.

Whatever reason you're looking for a counsellor - an overwhelming stressful situation, or you may be suffering from anxiety or a general feeling that something is not right in your life - finding someone who takes care to listen and understand can make a huge difference. I can offer you a relationship based on trust and acceptance. I believe the quality of my presence with you will matter a great deal - my openness and attention to what you bring. And this enables me to create a space where you can really be heard without judgment, and held safely.

I work with children and young people, specialising in anxiety and OCD. I help them learn new skills and attitudes to improve their ability to handle difficult thoughts and feelings and do more of what matters to them and make more room for connection. Mental health challenges encroach on their lives, make them avoid and make their world smaller. They disconnect from themselves, the things they care about and the people that matter to them. They underestimate their strengths and resources, overestimate life’s challenges and get stuck.
