Are you feeling lost, lonely, low? Need to talk? Life can be tough; you may feel vulnerable & find it hard to cope right now. Current issues may be difficult to manage, or there may deeper issues that are more complex, and affected you long term. It’s a really brave step to contact a professional therapeutic Counsellor, yet talking to someone outside of your immediate circle of friends and family can be really helpful. Making that first call or email can be difficult, but that first step can be a step into finding genuine support, hope for the future and help to carry on with life.

Clients access therapy for a multitude of reasons; there may be difficulties at work, challenges in a relationship or a client may have been abused spanning a number of years. My hope with therapy is to explore the roots of issues, to rediscover our innate resilience, to build self-esteem and to help you meet your goals, your hopes, your wishes. Many people access therapy because they want to feel different, to change the emotions they are experiencing, or for others it may be learning to access those feelings that have perhaps been locked away through trauma.

Although all clients are welcome, I specialise in counselling adults and young people with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Autistic Spectrum Condition and Specific Learning Difficulties, e.g. dyslexia. I have been working with neurodiverse adults for over thirty years, first as a teacher, then as an assessor, and now also as a counsellor. Although obtaining a diagnosis can bring relief, people often have many painful memories of school days and work, of relationships, and of not understanding and being misunderstood. Life can seem complex and confusing and sometimes who we are and what we want can get lost along the way.

Life can feel like a struggle, or we may feel that we’re just not living the life that we’d like to. Perhaps you’re questioning who you are? Sometimes, whether we have others around us or not, we can feel lonely. We may feel that we have no-one to talk to. My aim is to provide a space to BE. A space to be seen, heard and validated. A space to explore what might be troubling you, who you are, and how you might cultivate a life that feels meaningful and fulfilling. In particular, I specialise in working with Highly Sensitive People as defined by Elaine Aron, and how life experiences may affect this minority of people. ​

Life isn't a straight forward, easy process, it has its roller coaster of ups, downs and roundabouts, how do we maintain our focus on our everyday lives, we attempt to get on with it, but sometimes it can feel like an uphill struggle against the wind and rain. We become overloaded, overwhelmed, stressed and irritable and sometimes our friends, family and colleagues notice our behaviour before we do. When we do realise that we need support, help, courage, whatever you chose to call it then we are half way there, the rest is looking for someone to share our difficulties and pressures with.

Therapy offers a private and sacred space to think, feel and experience your true self, it explores your needs, it processes feelings, and from this comes a new clarity, and you may feel different, clearer. I sometimes think of it as coming out of the dark woods and into the light. This transforming of the self takes place at first within the therapeutic relationship. Being listened to unfolds a discovery of new insights, which activates the development of inner strength, resilience, resolve, and purpose, as it gradually releases you from the felt wounds you have been carrying, such as, anger, sadness, grief, regret or loss.

Are you feeling sad? Caught up in self-judgement, that voice in our head saying “not good enough!”, unable to accept a compliment because we always add a “but” to it or just wanting to be happy/different and not knowing how. And the thought of going for counselling can seem nerve-wracking. Maybe you just want to be ok and stop the unwanted thoughts in your head. Do you want to feel appreciated, recognised and respected? Well-being is key to a happy life but self-care can be a challenge when we're "not feeling it". I offer a space to be, to rest in and to talk through whatever it is. Take this pause, be nourished rather than judged.

By working together we can explore the roots of the issues, bring understanding to the here and now, maintain tools and techniques moving forward to attain the goals you wish to achieve. Many clients seek therapy to have a better understanding of themselves, with this knowledge comes power to unearth thoughts, feeling and emotions that may have been masked.

Do you feel sad and anxious at times and cannot put your finger on why? Do you doubt yourself, criticise yourself and never really congratulate yourself like you would a friend? From the outside, it looks to others like you have it all together, but your life feels tiring and you find yourself second guessing what people around you need to please them or not cause friction. Until now having counselling may not have crossed your mind as you think it is for people with serious mental health issues or are in crisis. I want you to know I can help you and your needs matter.

In my practice, I endeavour to work with clients in an empathic, collaborative and non-judgemental way. My integrated approach uses systemic theory (including exploring your thought processes and current situation) and psychodynamic theory (historical exploration linking to unconscious thoughts and behaviour). I also apply aspects of emotionally-focused therapy (EFT); and trauma focused therapies.

As a CBT therapist and as a midwife, I understand that it can be hard to ask for help particularly when you are pregnant or in the postnatal period (also known as the perinatal period). Many women (& partners) struggle to say they are experiencing anxiety, depression or have doubts or worries about being a parent. It can sometimes feel really hard to admit you are struggling - and this can be particularly difficult during the perinatal period so I understand how important reaching out for help is. But reaching out is the first step towards recovery - of your sense of self, your self worth and your wellbeing.
