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.

During our lives we encounter loss including bereavement, separation, ill health and relationship or transitional difficulties. All of these external factors can and will affect how we relate to others, the world around us and most importantly ourselves. This may include withdrawing, substance use or abuse, unhealthy eating patterns and other self harmful behaviours. Our work together will be to focus on these changes and how you can develop and cultivate a positive relationship with yourself, and others. I have supported many people who experience overwhelming symptoms of trauma, low self-esteem, anxiety and depression.
