At times, we can find it difficult to cope with challenges that we are facing. In contending with these challenges, we can lose sight of what matters to us, which only serves to intensify our problems. Strive2Thrive is a clinical psychology service that provides evidence-based approaches to help you cope with difficult thoughts and emotions and get you back on track by reconnecting with what matters to you. Whether it is feelings of anxiety, low mood, managing life transitions, or dealing with trauma, Strive2Thrive can help. In addition to one-to-one therapy, we also offer support to couples experiencing relationship difficulties.

You may be struggling with anxiety that has arisen out of the uncertain situation we find ourselves in right now or you may be facing an issue that has affected you for a long time and you've not been able to talk to anyone about it. You may feel that others do not understand or you feel like a burden to family and friends. You want to be able to explore your thoughts and feelings in a space which feels safe, non-judgmental and reflective so you can move forward with your life and make lasting change. I'm here to help.

People usually come to therapy because they are in distress, grieving or dissatisfied with certain aspects of their lives and want to address this. Facing change or loss and allowing yourself to be vulnerable can be daunting. I am committed to supporting you through your journey, providing safety, warmth, empathy and consistent reliable support.

How do you feel right now? Can you put a word to that feeling? Feelings can often go unchecked and we don't notice until we feel overwhelmed. In modern life we are constantly bombarded with information and feel pressure to make decisions. We anxiously think about the future and regretfully think of the past. Unable to find peace in the now. A therapist can act as a companion who can help you explore your feelings in a safe environment. Help you learn more about yourself. We all have aspects of our personality that we keep hidden from others and even ourselves. Together we can explore these aspects.

Summoning the courage to talk to a professional about what is distressing us can be the most difficult, but also the most powerful step towards improving our wellbeing and our lives to a standard that we are more satisfied with and that we deserve. I aim to create a space where the client feels safe, whilst also communicating trust, compassion and understanding so that I may understand what their current experience is truly like for them. I integrate various schools and models of therapy, which I have assessed, are the best intervention for a client in each session and closely monitor their reaction to these.

Welcome and thank you for taking the time to look at my profile. I am a fully qualified integrative psychotherapist who cares deeply about helping my clients to find their way towards stability. My experience to date has involved working with people who have recognised they no longer want to continue to feel anxious, overwhelmed, stressed and stuck. The stories that we tell to ourselves about ourselves can be our greatest undoing. The shame and pain that is contained in those stories can be suffocating. In therapy I offer a non-judgemental and compassionate space to begin untangling and understanding the roots of these feelings.

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.

As an integrative therapist I adapt my approach depending on the individual client to ensure that their needs are addressed. Depending on the reasons you have sought counselling, I will work with you to prioritise where the focus of the work will be. This may involve exploring some past events and how they are impacting on your life now. Or it may also involve examining current issues of concern and I will offer support as together we explore new ways of understanding and managing these concerns.

Have you been feeling anxious or depressed? Perhaps you have suffered a loss - a relationship, a bereavement, a job? Are events from the past still haunting you? Maybe you are not really sure why you are feeling so low? As an experienced counsellor, I can help you to explore your thoughts and feelings, manage your symptoms and decide what changes you want to make to your life. It is often difficult to talk to friends and family about our problems due to embarrassment or fear of being a burden. As a qualified counsellor, I have been trained to listen and support you through your darkest moments.
