It takes a lot of courage to reach out and ask for help so finding the right therapist is essential. I offer an initial free telephone consultation which is a good way for me to understand why you are seeking therapy and you can establish if you feel I am someone you could work with.

The anxieties and stresses of everyday life may be too much to bear and your emotions don't seem to reflect the moment. You may be feeling out of touch with yourself or devastated by a recent event in your life. It could be that you just don't know what it is that you want, or who you really are. Whatever it is, together we can help you rediscover your inner resources and true identity. You may then identify what it is that you would really like, what works for you and how to achieve it, your way.

In troubling times it can sometimes feel like you are alone & seeking help might feel really difficult. Just having a space to make sense of the thoughts that jumble around our heads is invaluable. Perhaps you need to understand yourself, your relationships or events from your past. Sometimes all we need is someone to just listen and hear our story. Counselling promotes insight, fosters self-awareness & creates a stronger, more resilient sense of self. This powerful combination can be the kick-start for the changes in your life you wish to make - sometimes even the smallest changes can make a huge difference in your well-being.

This enabled me to feel understood and brought about a huge sense of empowerment helping me make the necessary changes.

We’re all unique, yet we share some challenges in life. Stress, trauma, loss and fear are just a few that can knock us off course. I see therapy as a way not only of getting you back on track, fast, but helping you to fulfil your potential. When the difficulties of life leave you feeling overwhelmed and unable to cope, I can help you to find the first steps to recovery. No one therapy can work for all, so my approach is to build on what works for you, drawing on therapeutic disciplines that best fit your presentation and personality.

How is the Coronavirus crisis affecting you? We all respond differently to the pressures and changes- you may be swinging from one emotion to another, or feeling numb and tired, or just can't think straight... We are all doing our best to cope, but maybe your normal ways of coping aren't working well enough at the moment? Or maybe you have turned to ways of coping that are unhelpful- like drinking too much ? I can help you find your feet and see what is important for you right now. I know how important it is to find a breathing space to process what is happening when you are living with chaos and uncertainty

I enjoy helping you discover the key to why you are suffering with anxiety, OCD or depression. I can help you feel better and will give you hope, love and acceptance. I understand struggling with anxiety can be overwhelming, particularly if you are experiencing panic attacks. It can literally feel like you are going to die. You are not going to die or going mad. Anxiety is simply your body's way of letting you know things are not quite right. Anxiety creates fear, which triggers the 'flight or fight' response. We can also become locked in a vicious circle of being afraid of the fear.

At times of feeling low or anxious we often think, “what’s the point of trying it won’t make any difference”, leading to feelings of depression, sadness, fear and tearfulness. This then leads to changes in our behaviour such as withdrawing from others or staying in bed as we mull things over in our heads which makes us feel worse. Additionally, past trauma issues can often leave us feeling overwhelmed or with experiences of flashbacks and nightmares. Relationship issues left unresolved often leave us with a sense of helplessness and relationship breakdown leave us feel confused. Does this sound familiar to you?
