By coming here you've taken the first step and I know it's not easy. There are many reasons why you might have started looking for counselling. Sometimes we can feel uncomfortable but don't understand it or struggle to describe it, life can become overwhelming, or we are confused, and we don't know which way to turn. Perhaps you are facing life changes or decisions and don't know which path to take.

I practise from a psychodynamic perspective which has its roots in psychoanalysis, the founding approach to talking therapy. This means I am interested in helping people to be curious about themselves, to understand why they might think, feel or behave in certain ways which are often unconscious, and to understand where these patterns might come from. This involves you and I building up a trusting relationship that would enable you to bring anything (thoughts feelings, fantasies), however unusual or nonsensical, you want to talk about with me.

I specialise in working with women who feel overwhelmed by life. If you're wondering if that's you then the following questions might help: 1. Do you have a tendency to feel frazzled by life, rushing from one obligation to the next? 2. Do you hate saying no to people but are tired of saying yes? 3. Do you feel resentful of the drain on your time (and does that make you feel guilty)? 4. Does the idea of conflict feel awkward and uncomfortable? If you've answered yes to any of those questions, then you're in the right place.

If you are hurting, confused, troubled, anxious, alienated, terrified, doubtful of your self-worth, or uncertain as to your identity, then understanding is called for, and I can offer that to you. I will make no judgments about you or your life and will accept and prize you entirely as you are, offering you warmth, empathy and a complete confidence in your ability to progress on a journey of recovery. I believe that we all have the ability to find our own answers and solutions so as to move forward out of distress, but sometimes we need a counsellor to help us get there.

Whether you are looking for support through challenging times or trying to make sense of your life, talking to a professional counsellor can be really valuable when things feel overwhelming and uncertain, we all need help at times. Feelings we can’t manage or make sense of can impact on our whole sense of well-being and prevent us from living our lives fully. Counselling can help manage current situations and look at new ways of coping. It can also give us insight, understanding and perspective on past experiences.

I support people with anxiety and/or chronic pain to live a more balanced life. Anxiety can be debilitating and overwhelming. I will work with you to understand what life is like for you and to offer new perspective and ways of coping. We often 'block' thoughts as a coping strategy, and whilst this can be very useful, it can increase anxiety. If you experience physical symptoms such as headaches, IBS, joint pain or fibromyalgia, your body may be literally holding the weight of your anxiety. We can consider whether a more holistic approach will help you–exploring the connection between your physical symptoms and your anxiety.

Sometimes life can present difficult challenges. When that happens it's easy to feel confused, lonely, stuck and perhaps even judged. I can help you by providing a space for realisation, processing trauma and finding greater inner peace and freedom to live the life you wish for. I believe that the most important relationship we have is with ourselves. Having self compassion and being at peace with one’s self can be difficult to practice. I want to bring you hope and support you in becoming your own best friend.

Do you feel stuck in a difficult relationship? Are childhood experiences affecting your adult life? I understand how it can feel impossible to see a better future. Together we can work towards healing and recovery from abuse/trauma/ PTSD/complexPTSD so you can start to live life fully again. I offer a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment where we can work at your pace. I too have experienced abuse and so I understand how difficult it can be to reach out for help. My experience of therapy changed my life and as a result I retrained to become a counsellor.
