At certain times in our lives most of us can reach a place where things aren’t quite how we want them to be. It may be a feeling of ‘stuckness’ with a close relationship or at work. Or it may be a much deeper feeling of depression or despair. The counselling room is a unique space where you are free to explore – with non-judgemental guidance – what is going on in your life and how to review, revisit and perhaps change the things which are troubling you or holding you back.

We all have times when we feel that life is getting on top of us. This is a natural part of all our realities, and our movement through these times is part of our overall growth and development as a person. Often we can successfully negotiate these difficult times or events ourselves, but sometimes we may decide that we need some support. I specialise in working on a one-to-one basis with young people and adults from a wide variety of backgrounds. I have a wealth of experience in education and work with young people, families and adults as both a teacher and a counsellor. I also a volunteer counsellor at an NHS Trust.

If you've arrived here, you are already thinking about counselling. You might feel depressed, anxious or overwhelmed and finding it difficult to cope with the challenges of life. Perhaps you have experienced a recent loss, had a sudden change of circumstances or are struggling with relationships. Maybe you don't even know what's troubling you. Research shows positive change happens when there is a good match between client and counsellor. It’s difficult to choose a counsellor or know what to expect from counselling without having a face-to-face meeting. This is why I offer a free 30-min intro session where we can meet

We all experience difficulties at times in our lives, whether it’s facing up to loss, bereavement, life changes and challenges, a relationship breakdown or a shocking diagnosis. Or you realise you’re just not feeling ‘yourself’ and could be experiencing low mood, anxiety or depression. Perhaps life just isn’t shaping up in the way you’d planned. Therapy could be all you need to work through these difficult feelings and get you back on the right track, help you work out what might be causing you to feel this way, and to make sense of past and present challenges to bring into focus a clearer sense of yourself.

Does it feel like time to make a new start, change direction? Maybe it feels like something is missing - or you may be feeling stuck, anxious or depressed. Unwanted changes, including relationship issues, bereavement, redundancy or disappointment, can sometimes feel overwhelming. I offer space for you to reflect on what's happening, get clear about what's most important for you, and find your way forwards. I have found that there is often positive learning to be gained from crises and difficult times, and that working through them with a supportive guide can help in finding that learning and moving forward with renewed purpose.

At times in our lives (perhaps especially in the current situation) we all are capable of experiencing feelings we find distressing, or behavioural patterns we struggle with, or even 'just' a sense of unease, or a lack of confidence, or stuckness. It might be that you feel out of sync with the world or with yourself, accompanied by feelings of sadness, hopelessness, isolation, guilt, anger, anxiety or stress, or simply a sense that there is somehow more to you then what you presently sense. I can support you to work through and bring more clarity to, or acceptance of, those issues you are currently experiencing.

It may be you have reached a time where you need the help of another to reflect and move forward. Seeking counselling at these times is common, instinctively knowing we need to work with a non-judgemental other to re-consider. It may be you are struggling with anxiety or depression, health issues or issues arising from life changes. Specific challenges such as redundancy or relationship breakdown can trigger emotional responses which are extremely hard to cope with. Or you may have a more undefined sense of dissatisfaction, and wish to explore ideas which will strengthen you. I will support you to develop tools to support yourself.

We all struggle at times and sometimes it feels too much for us. Suffering reaches us in so many guises and we all react in our own way. Reaching out for professional help is an important step in working towards the changes that you want. Whether the past is holding you back, the future fills you with anxiety or you are struggling with the 'here and now' I would like to offer my help. There is only so much we can manage alone and sometime our closest relationships are too close to help us see more clearly, to make sense of our confusion and provide a safe place to explore who we really are. That's why I'm here - to help you.
