Currently, I am only offering EMDR Therapy, a NICE-approved treatment for trauma, but with growing evidence for other problems. Right now you struggle to connect with the things that matter to you. Your thoughts and emotions leave you overwhelmed, worrying about the future and you are finding it difficult to cope with your past. Your motivation is low, you may be tearful, your sleep is disturbed due to nightmares, you have a poor appetite or maybe comfort eat to cope, and your relationships and friendships may also be strained. Right now you are feeling stuck and you are looking for someone to help you to explore a way forward.

Whether your feeling stuck, at a low ebb, dislike the person you've become. Perhaps feel as if your at a crossroads in your life or just looking to challenge yourself. Even the strongest among us can feel lost, unsure, unhappy or even wonder what's the point. Life can be a struggle through many forms of loss in our lives we can feel hopeless and helpless. Even at your lowest, your still trying, still hoping. That's why your reading this, your looking for something to change, to challenge where you are in life and how to change it, so you can feel happy, content, alive again. As an Integrative Therapist I can accompany you.

Many of us can find life difficult at times. Life has a way of knocking us down. We can feel overwhelmed, feel lonely and feel on our own with our issues. Talking to loved ones, family and friends can sometimes be daunting, whether it be, fear of rejection or fear of burdening them. We then keep it all inside, which can lead to depression, isolation and low mood. At the heart of my practice is the therapeutic relationship, based on safety and confidentiality. Giving people of all ages a compassionate, warm and friendly environment to express their issues and feel heard.

My background is providing counselling to LGBTQ + & questioning people in a community charity setting, and I know of the barriers people can face when trying to access help for mental health.
I offer long and short term therapy with a specialism in working with members of the LGBTQ + community. I have a strong belief that people should be able to define life on their own terms and find their own meaning. I am interested in helping clients examine what can get in the way of that, whether it is personal history, external pressures, feelings of shame, or expectations of what is and isn’t normal. I work with the person rather than with any diagnosis believing that we all are doing the best we can within the environment and resources available and I want to help you discover what is important to you.

As I currently work in the charity sector, I have extensive experience working with a very broad spectrum of clients, of various ethnic and cultural backgrounds, sexualities, and gender expressions. As a result of this, I have sought additional training on many topics, such as domestic violence, the transgender experience in Northern Ireland. Additionally, in my recent education at Ulster University, I undertook some research into social anxiety, giving me a more specialist knowledge of that topic.

Googling to find the answer to a pain, avoiding people or places to prevent danger, repeating things to friends with the hope you’ll get some form of reassurance, constantly checking your phone to make sure you haven’t missed a notification about a global disaster or missed a call because something bad might have happened to friend or family member? Guess what…. I've been there too!
