What I offer is a non-judgemental, relaxing, safe place where you can discuss everything. I am here to listen, whatever you need to say will be heard. I can help you unburden and gain relief from what distresses you. I can help you challenge and change how you think about things. I can help you put words to what you are feeling. I can offer information on new strategies to help you cope with life's stresses and create the life you want. I have experience working with many issues, such as depression, anxiety, domestic abuse, the impact of early years, relationship issues, anger, sexual abuse and so on.

I appreciate you might be feeling anxious as you reach out for help and I assure you this is perfectly natural, especially if this is your first time seeking counselling.

I work extensively with trauma, shame, attachment, suicide ideation, self harm, anxiety, depression, sexual/physical/emotional abuse, amongst a vast range of presenting issues. Every person is unique, therefore my integrative approach is tailored to meet your individual needs. It is very common to experience low mood/anxiety without understanding why, or to feel completely overwhelmed by a simplistic task. This does not mean "I am weak", "I'm not good enough".

I provide a safe and confidential space for both individuals and those with relationship difficulties to work through what is troubling you. Therapy can be daunting and many struggle to make that initial consultation; you are not alone. I will walk alongside you every step of the way on your therapeutic journey; providing you with individually tailored tools and techniques to work through your difficulties. Often in life it is our relationships, which cause us the most angst, our stress is generally always in relation to someone else and our self talk if often heavily laden with 'shoulds' resulting in feelings of guilt.

There are many reasons why an individual seeks counselling, and I understand that it can feel like a big decision where you may feel nervous, uncertain or vulnerable. My first step is to offer you a safe, non-judgemental space, where you feel able to explore your own thoughts and feelings.

Hello. Thank you for taking the time to read what it is that I may have to offer you. As you will likely know, we tend to seek out therapy at those times in our life when we are experiencing some form of distress. What that distress may look like will vary between individuals, and how people may name or label that distress will also vary considerably. What I can offer is first and foremost the opportunity to be with another human being during this time of distress. During this time, together we will seek to better understand your current difficulties - your fears and hopes, your disappointments and pain, your losses and hurts.
