We all have times when we feel that life is getting on top of us. This is a natural part of all our realities, and our movement through these times is part of our overall growth and development as a person. Often we can successfully negotiate these difficult times or events ourselves, but sometimes we may decide that we need some support. I specialise in working on a one-to-one basis with young people and adults from a wide variety of backgrounds. I have a wealth of experience in education and work with young people, families and adults as both a teacher and a counsellor. I also a volunteer counsellor at an NHS Trust.

Perhaps a specific issue has led you here today. Perhaps you would like to explore difficulties in your early life and how those are impacting on you today. We all go through times when some additional support could be useful. Perhaps I'm the right person to help. I have extensive experience of working in NHS and charity settings as well as abroad. Aside from my private practice I currently work as Senior Clinical Psychologist in an NHS service.

If you've arrived here, you are already thinking about counselling. You might feel depressed, anxious or overwhelmed and finding it difficult to cope with the challenges of life. Perhaps you have experienced a recent loss, had a sudden change of circumstances or are struggling with relationships. Maybe you don't even know what's troubling you. Research shows positive change happens when there is a good match between client and counsellor. It’s difficult to choose a counsellor or know what to expect from counselling without having a face-to-face meeting. This is why I offer a free 30-min intro session where we can meet

We all experience difficulties at times in our lives, whether it’s facing up to loss, bereavement, life changes and challenges, a relationship breakdown or a shocking diagnosis. Or you realise you’re just not feeling ‘yourself’ and could be experiencing low mood, anxiety or depression. Perhaps life just isn’t shaping up in the way you’d planned. Therapy could be all you need to work through these difficult feelings and get you back on the right track, help you work out what might be causing you to feel this way, and to make sense of past and present challenges to bring into focus a clearer sense of yourself.

You may be a woman who is struggling with depression, relationship problems, anxiety, low self-esteem, or simply a sense of emptiness. You may feel trapped in, or emerging from, an abusive relationship. You may have experienced a loss recently- death of a loved one, divorce, loss of a job, even ageing poses its own special challenges. I specialise in working with women in particular, by telephone, video link, and online. I am able to be flexible in the way I work, and combine different methods to suit my clients. Working by telephone or online can be very helpful to clients who are unable to travel.

I am an experienced BACP accredited psychodynamic counsellor, currently based in Phoenix Therapy Practice. I believe that no issue is too small nor too great to bring to therapy – if it causes you pain, you will benefit from opening up about it in the long run. I believe everyone’s internal world needs to be approached with curiosity and openness. My approach is rooted in traditional psychoanalysis but progressive in the way I practice it. It is suitable for adults of all ages and backgrounds and also LGBTQ/kink and poly-friendly.

Does it feel like time to make a new start, change direction? Maybe it feels like something is missing - or you may be feeling stuck, anxious or depressed. Unwanted changes, including relationship issues, bereavement, redundancy or disappointment, can sometimes feel overwhelming. I offer space for you to reflect on what's happening, get clear about what's most important for you, and find your way forwards. I have found that there is often positive learning to be gained from crises and difficult times, and that working through them with a supportive guide can help in finding that learning and moving forward with renewed purpose.

It may be you have reached a time where you need the help of another to reflect and move forward. Seeking counselling at these times is common, instinctively knowing we need to work with a non-judgemental other to re-consider. It may be you are struggling with anxiety or depression, health issues or issues arising from life changes. Specific challenges such as redundancy or relationship breakdown can trigger emotional responses which are extremely hard to cope with. Or you may have a more undefined sense of dissatisfaction, and wish to explore ideas which will strengthen you. I will support you to develop tools to support yourself.

We all struggle at times and sometimes it feels too much for us. Suffering reaches us in so many guises and we all react in our own way. Reaching out for professional help is an important step in working towards the changes that you want. Whether the past is holding you back, the future fills you with anxiety or you are struggling with the 'here and now' I would like to offer my help. There is only so much we can manage alone and sometime our closest relationships are too close to help us see more clearly, to make sense of our confusion and provide a safe place to explore who we really are. That's why I'm here - to help you.
