Many of us struggle when it comes to our sexuality or gender identity, is that you too? Have the people around you rejected you or are you worried that they might? Would it be nice to work some of this stuff out, with the help of someone who gets it? Life is hard enough being queer . For some of us it was obvious from the start where our sexuality and identity sat, but not all of us. Some of us spent years trying to figure it out. Even if we did know from an early age who we are, it’s not like the world made living openly as ourselves easy.

I am very happy to work with clients from LGBTQ communities.
Sometimes the challenges that we face become too much. Maybe you experienced or witnessed violence or abuse at any time in your life. Perhaps you are feeling anxious, angry, stressed, depressed, rageful, scared or in despair. I offer a warm and confidential space in which we can explore together and try to resolve your problems. My practice is anti-oppressive and anti-racist, and I believe that we can be damaged by the expectations of the world around us as well as by our earliest and most intimate relationships. Do get in touch and let's see together how I can help you make the changes you desire.

Have you ever wished you could say how you really felt, and that someone would take the time to listen to you? Perhaps you have kept your thoughts and feelings to yourself through fear of being put down, judged, or laughed at? Or maybe you put your problems aside because you feel the other person is more important? Counselling is the opportunity to sort your thoughts; gives you time to work out what you really feel, the space to consider your options, and decide what you feel is best for you. People come for different reasons, but all wish the same outcomes; to be heard, be understood, feel better and find ways to enjoy their life.

Finding a therapist and taking part in counselling can be a stressful process, whether or not you've seen a counsellor before. You may be considering counselling to discuss a specific issue, event or problem in your life, or perhaps you are negotiating a major change or period of anxiety or depression. I believe everyone has the innate capacity to reach their full potential, but sometimes difficult experiences and relationships can stifle growth. I offer you a safe, empathic, and reflective space in which to negotiate blocks in your life, develop your self-esteem and give you the confidence to follow your path.

Life can be wonderful, vibrant and full of love.  But life can also be difficult, trying and emotional at times. Talking to someone can help you make sense of what is going on for you. You can slowly start to put things into perspective. You may feel a massive sense of relief as you start the counselling process. We will explore your thoughts and feelings. This allows you to understand why you feel the way you do and more importantly it begins the process of change.

Most of us experience times in our lives when we feel low, worried or anxious. This might be because of specific difficulties such as anxiety, night terrors, panic attacks or depression, it could also be a general sense of feeling down and simply not understanding why. Talking to an experienced, accredited therapist offers you the opportunity to explore what concerns you may have in a confidential, non-judgemental setting with someone who explores what life events might have contributed to these feelings. I have 14 years clinical counselling experience working with adults and 11 years working with students (18+)

If you are reading this I wonder if life feels difficult at the moment. Perhaps you are feeling anxious, depressed, living with the distress of uncertainty? Finding it difficult to let go of control, of perfectionism, feeling vulnerable or struggling with living in a ‘never enough’ world? Is this having a negative effect on your relationships, or are you struggling to understand traumatic events in your past, and you can no longer soldier on as before? However you may be feeling, it can feel really scary to come and talk to a counsellor. But I respect your courage to reach out, and I will listen to you with warmth and empathy.
