There are many reasons for thinking about coming to counselling. You may need to talk to a counsellor because of how you feel, eg. anxious, stressed, overwhelmed or low. You may need support with a situation you are going through, have a relationship issue with a partner, family or friends, or have something that has happened in the past that still affects you. Whatever the reasons, counselling helps by giving you or a loved one the time and space to talk about it and work things out with a professional counsellor by your side, in a safe, confidential, warm and empathic environment.

It’s like having another mind in the room thinking together and problem solving, finding creative solutions to life’s difficulties. Two minds coming together to help you achieve your goals, facilitating you to be able to live the life you want to have.

It has become increasingly apparent in recent years that talking to somebody outside of your family or friendship circle can bring a refreshing perspective to difficult life issues. By providing a therapy space where you can feel heard and accepted without bias, you are encouraged to share and explore those detrimental issues that have prevented you from totally embracing life.

My first step is to offer you a safe, non-judgemental space, where you feel able to explore your own thoughts and feelings.

A BACP reg, Integrative Therapist, trained in Humanistic, Cognitive Behavioural and Psychodynamic approaches to therapy. I'm also undertaking an MA in Anthropology because my approach considers the impact of evolutionary psychology, cultural, and socioeconomical influences. How I work with clients is also underpinned by feminist, gender and queer theory. My aim is to facilitate a space for individuals to talk and explore problems and pain, but also heighten awareness and understanding about the blocks that are maintaining their sense of stagnation. By making what is unconscious conscious we begin to create an effective way forward.
