At certain times in our lives most of us can reach a place where things aren’t quite how we want them to be. It may be a feeling of ‘stuckness’ with a close relationship or at work. Or it may be a much deeper feeling of depression or despair. The counselling room is a unique space where you are free to explore – with non-judgemental guidance – what is going on in your life and how to review, revisit and perhaps change the things which are troubling you or holding you back.

Perhaps a specific issue has led you here today. Perhaps you would like to explore difficulties in your early life and how those are impacting on you today. We all go through times when some additional support could be useful. Perhaps I'm the right person to help. I have extensive experience of working in NHS and charity settings as well as abroad. Aside from my private practice I currently work as Senior Clinical Psychologist in an NHS service. I have worked with a wide range of difficulties and have most experience in working with complex trauma, interpersonal difficulties, mood management, and autism spectrum conditions.

If you've arrived here, you are already thinking about counselling. You might feel depressed, anxious or overwhelmed and finding it difficult to cope with the challenges of life. Perhaps you have experienced a recent loss, had a sudden change of circumstances or are struggling with relationships. Maybe you don't even know what's troubling you. Research shows positive change happens when there is a good match between client and counsellor. It’s difficult to choose a counsellor or know what to expect from counselling without having a face-to-face meeting. This is why I offer a free 30-min intro session where we can meet

I am an experienced BACP accredited psychodynamic counsellor, currently based in Phoenix Therapy Practice. I believe that no issue is too small nor too great to bring to therapy – if it causes you pain, you will benefit from opening up about it in the long run. I believe everyone’s internal world needs to be approached with curiosity and openness. My approach is rooted in traditional psychoanalysis but progressive in the way I practice it. It is suitable for adults of all ages and backgrounds and also LGBTQ/kink and poly-friendly.

It may be you have reached a time where you need the help of another to reflect and move forward. Seeking counselling at these times is common, instinctively knowing we need to work with a non-judgemental other to re-consider. It may be you are struggling with anxiety or depression, health issues or issues arising from life changes. Specific challenges such as redundancy or relationship breakdown can trigger emotional responses which are extremely hard to cope with. Or you may have a more undefined sense of dissatisfaction, and wish to explore ideas which will strengthen you. I will support you to develop tools to support yourself.

Are you living your best life? Life can be complicated. At times, we find ourselves struggling to cope with these challenges. The cost to us of living with unresolved issues can significantly impact upon our lives, on our sense of self, and on the relationships we have with the people around us. I am trained to work with unconscious material. Time and time again I witness how peoples relationships improve, and how their lives simplify, as their understanding and connection with themselves deepens. Therapy requires a curiosity of mind and a commitment to the process, but the rewards can be profound.

Are you feeling depressed; confused about what you feel; ground down to the point where you feel unable to cope; or simply wishing you could find someone who would genuinely hear you? Individuals choose therapy for a variety of reasons and often the biggest hurdle we face is an inner voice telling us our problems are nothing special and we should just get on with life. I provide a safe, empathic environment where you can find your voice and express your concerns without fear of being judged and to provide you with the means to work out your own answers and create the life you want.

When any type of mental health or emotional concern affects your daily life and function, therapy can help you work through the difficulties you are experiencing. You do not have to be diagnosed with a mental health problem to benefit from therapy. Many people in therapy seek help to talk through life challenges such as relationship problems, grief, parenting difficulties, or family struggles.

There are different times in our lives when we may encounter challenges in our emotional world. Transition and change can sometimes trigger these challenging feelings. For example, moving home or employment, changing relationships or friendships; life changes such as going to university or reaching age milestones. Any of these can significantly affect the way we feel about ourselves. We react in different ways to what we encounter in our environment. We might become depressed or overwhelmed by intense emotions or we might feel anxious and unable to engage in social activities. It can all become too much to manage alone.

Psychodynamic Counsellors
Psychodynamic therapy in BN2, also known as insight-oriented therapy, evolved from Freudian psychoanalysis. Like adherents of psychoanalysis, psychodynamic therapists believe that bringing the unconscious into conscious awareness promotes insight and resolves conflict. But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.

How can I tell if a counsellor is right for me?
Counsellors and therapists in BN2 are able to work with a wide range of issues.

For example, you can find CBT Therapists in BN2 who focus on a specific issue, as well as DBT Therapists in BN2 who help clients with new skills to manage their emotions and relationships.

If you're seeking a marriage counsellor in BN2 you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counselling or couples counselling in BN2 and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counselling in BN2 or family therapy in BN2.
