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.

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.

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.

Do you need someone to listen, understand and be open and honest? Have you been bereaved, survivor of rape or sexual abuse, have Autism. Struggling to express your feelings? Do you enjoy being in nature? Walk and talk therapy can allow you free space to interact and move rather than being in an enclosed space and sitting face to face which can sometimes be difficult. I offer Sandstory sessions allowing a safe space for you to tell your story using sand. Have you suffered a baby loss, miscarriage, stillbirth, I am trained in this area and have personal experience, so can offer a truly empathic and authentic space for you to talk

We all have mental health just like physical health and sometimes we all need someone to talk to. Maybe you have situations arising in life at the moment which you are finding difficult to work through, perhaps you don't feel you can reach out to those around you or perhaps it is just too personal. Whatever the struggle may be, you are not alone.

Does life sometimes feel like it’s getting on top of you and you aren’t quite sure where to turn to? Could you benefit from a place to talk, to explore your thoughts and gain some clarity? Stress, anxiety, depression or general low mood can and do affect us all at some point in our lives. It’s a normal reaction to often challenging or adverse situations. Short term Counselling and longer term Psychotherapy can offer support and an opportunity to promote a greater sense of well-being
