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.

You may be a woman who is struggling with depression, relationship problems, anxiety, low self-esteem, or simply a sense of emptiness. You may feel trapped in, or emerging from, an abusive relationship. You may have experienced a loss recently- death of a loved one, divorce, loss of a job, even ageing poses its own special challenges. I specialise in working with women in particular, by telephone, video link, and online. I am able to be flexible in the way I work, and combine different methods to suit my clients.

I am an experienced BACP accredited psychodynamic counsellor, currently based in Phoenix Therapy Practice. I believe that no issue is too small nor too great to bring to therapy – if it causes you pain, you will benefit from opening up about it in the long run. I believe everyone’s internal world needs to be approached with curiosity and openness. My approach is rooted in traditional psychoanalysis but progressive in the way I practice it. It is suitable for adults of all ages and backgrounds and also LGBTQ/kink and poly-friendly.

We all need help at different times in our lives for a variety of reasons and sometimes just talking to our loved ones or friends is either not possible or feels uncomfortable.

My work is based on my relationship with my clients; using empathy and building rapport enables them to work through their issue at their own pace, whatever the problem, whether it is a traumatic event from the past or a more recent issue, or one that they have been living with all their lives.

Speaking with someone for the first time about personal issues or trauma can feel daunting. Sometimes it's important to talk with someone separate from your family and friends, someone who is there solely for you and with you. I provide a space for us to develop the environment where you feel safe and not judged. You may be experiencing trauma or bereavement, the effects of historical issues, or coping with the current pandemic. A lot of people come to therapy because life just feels unmanageable and are struggling with day to day living. The session will be held by me but led by you.
