Areas of Speciality: Narcissistic Personality Disorder, Depression, Anxiety, Trauma, Bereavement, Physical/ Sexual Abuse , Mental/Emotional Abuse, Self Worth Issues, Addiction.
After my first assessment I will work closely with my client to decide on the best form of therapy for them and decide the way forward together. I have had a passion for helping others my entire life and began counselling in 2010. My own past has only served to deepen my desire to help as I can deeply empathise with those who need it most. I believe that no one should suffer in silence and I work hard to try and guide clients to their own answers. When someone feels lost they then become confused and this is a very lonely place to be. I base my work on clearing the mist and helping clients find the answers.

I have been working with people in the public and voluntary sectors for over ten years, with focus around supporting those affected by domestic and/or sexual abuse .
I am a qualified integrative counsellor offering a confidential and understanding service for adults, children and young people who are facing a range of challenges and emotional difficulties. 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 will feel able to explore your own thoughts and feelings. This offers you space to understand the underlying feelings that can make you feel low, stuck, empty or overwhelmed.

I have spent time working within a variety of organisations both private and public sector, with presenting issues such as domestic abuse, anxiety, sexual abuse , depression, and trauma.
That feeling that follows you from when you get up in the morning, and never leaves. Which gradually grew from a passing "uncomfortable" feeling to an overwhelming sense of dread, anxiousness, sadness, tearfulness, or even anger. This is where I was in 2008, until I finally found the courage to go to my GP, and seek support from a counsellor. Furthermore this is what inspired me to become a mental health counsellor. Its important for you to understand that you are never alone, no matter how much it feels that way. Your emotional well-being is the most crucial part of you, and you can get through this.

Anxiety, relationship issues, depression, family issues, addictions, abuse, trauma etc: they can affect anyone at anytime, regardless of age or background. It's true The way we think, feel, and react will influence and affect our relationships - with our family, with friends, and even at work. Our relationships then affect how we feel about ourselves, and our place in the world. All of this leads us to places in our lives where we feel: Stuck, frustrated, angry, disconnected, unmotivated, sad, hurt, depressed, fragile, fearful, lost, broken, ashamed, unworthy, or just plain different than everybody else.

Psychological therapy is about making sense of things, it is about you taking back control and choice in your life, and it is about living in the present without the shadow of past difficulties. I know the thought of having to talk about things can be daunting and what I hope to offer you is expertise in taking you through this process and out the other side. My role is to walk with you throughout therapy, providing you with the necessary tools that will keep you steady and moving forward to your goals. The psychological approaches and the techniques that I share with clients are built from what I’ve seen work time and time again.

I work with individuals (18+) who are seeking to increase their self awareness and to better understand how they think, feel and act. My therapeutic approach can help you take notice of unhelpful relational patterns that feel automatic and cause distress, worry and self doubt. As you progress in therapy, you will feel more able to respond to stressors with greater flexibility and confidence. This frees you up to think and act in a manner that serves your needs better and helps you achieve the sustainable balance you seek.
