Looking for a counsellor on a site like this can be quite daunting – I fully understand that. Clients have told me that, whilst reaching out for help was difficult, they’re really glad they did it. Maybe you’re feeling a low at the moment, like you’ve lost your way. Perhaps you’re feeling anxious, or you'd like to be kinder to yourself but you don’t know how. Whatever challenges you're facing, I'm ready to support you through them. Sometimes we all need a safe space where we can heal our wounds, speak openly about what’s going on for us and be supported through difficult times, without worrying that we’ll be judged or shamed.

**Webcam/ Telephone sessions available** Hey there. If you're experiencing low mood, stress, anger, anxiety or worry, then it could be helpful to consider seeking therapy. Usually even working out where to even start can be a difficult and confusing process, and CBT is a fantastic way to help you to unpick problematic thoughts, feeling, behaviours and cycles which could be maintaining the problems you're experiencing

Hello! I work as a Clinical Psychologist part-time in the NHS, and part-time from home. Fundamentally, I enjoy meeting people and working alongside people to help process and understand their experiences. Sometimes our life experiences and difficulties we encounter can feel overwhelming, and we may not know where to start. I can help you start to make sense of your experiences through talking about them and applying a range of therapeutic approaches along the way.

I understand that sometimes it’s not easy and things aren’t always how we would like them to be, but simply talking to someone can bring relief and be the first step towards positive change. I am committed to providing you with support, free of judgement and full of empathy for every stage of your journey. As a qualified counsellor I am enthusiastic about humanistic approaches. I embrace the idea that we have wisdom and capabilities to overcome hardships and live a more fulfilling life, given the right support and environment.

Many of us begin therapy when we realise we need to change something, heal from something or understand ourselves better. There could be something you know is hurting, you might feel burnt out, overwhelmed, or feeling stuck and dissatisfied with life. Therapy can help you reach a clearer understanding of yourself and gives you a safer space to discover and develop more satisfying ways of living. In therapy we can explore, together, where you’ve been, where you are right now, and where you hope to get to. Therapy can help you get back in touch with yourself, find your voice and make sense of challenging emotions.

If you’re reading this, it is likely that you currently find yourself somewhere within that cycle or you may have feelings of anxiety, depression or low self-worth. You may be experiencing relationship difficulties, intrusive and obsessive thoughts, self-harm, child-hood trauma or grief. Whatever the reason may be, I just want to firstly remind you that you are not alone.

I specialise in supporting people who find themselves in repeated patterns of thinking and behaving that can cause repeated problems with work, intimate relationships, friendships and sometimes the relationship a person has with themselves. People may also find themselves stuck in unhelpful repeated ways of coping with thoughts, feelings and relationships and this can have a significant and detrimental impact on wellbeing and quality of life. Problems such as poor sleep, anxiety, OCD, up and down moods are often the by-product of difficulties with coping.

Every client comes with unique issues and from my seat I view the issues as one, "a block in the road to wellness". I am keenly aware that all clients come with individual goals and I am here to help. Many of my clients use the phrase “I just want to feel better".
