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.

Perhaps a specific issue has led you here today. Perhaps you would like to explore difficulties in your early life and how those are impacting on you today. We all go through times when some additional support could be useful. Perhaps I'm the right person to help. I have extensive experience of working in NHS and charity settings as well as abroad. Aside from my private practice I currently work as Senior Clinical Psychologist in an NHS service. I have worked with a wide range of difficulties and have most experience in working with complex trauma, interpersonal difficulties, mood management, and autism spectrum conditions.

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

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.

Integrative Counsellors
Integrative therapy in BN2 refers to therapy in which elements from different types of therapy may be used. Therapists 'integrate' two or more therapeutic styles (e.g. Cognitive and Family Systems) to bring about a personalised and practical approach to healing. These BN2 integrative therapy Counsellors practice an integrative therapy style.

Integrative therapy (with a small 'i') may also refer to the process of 'integrating' the personality by taking disowned or unresolved aspects of the self and making them part of a cohesive personality whole. It reduces the use of defense mechanisms that inhibit spontaneity and allows flexibility in solving emotional problems.

How can I tell if a counsellor is right for me?
Counsellors and therapists in BN2 are able to work with a wide range of issues.

For example, you can find CBT Therapists in BN2 who focus on a specific issue, as well as DBT Therapists in BN2 who help clients with new skills to manage their emotions and relationships.

If you're seeking a marriage counsellor in BN2 you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counselling or couples counselling in BN2 and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counselling in BN2 or family therapy in BN2.
