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.

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.

Counselling with me can help you manage how you are responding to this very stressful situation. My approach to counselling is to help you make sense of what is going right now, explore how you got here, and find a way through. I offer a compassionate and confidential space in which you can feel comfortable enough to talk about difficult or painful experiences, thoughts and feelings.

I can help people who don’t feel they are living their best lives due to anxiety, low mood, poor self-esteem and negative self-talk overcome these problems and manifest a life that is driven by values, aspirations and contentment. As humans, we all have a need to find a purpose and meaning, and this can be difficult if we allow our worries, fears, doubts and unhelpful emotions to take control of the drivers seat. Whilst we can never eliminate negative feelings, I can help you develop an accepting relationship with them so you take re-take control of the drivers seat and move forward in the direction you want with purpose.

Hello, I am a queer-identified therapist and I have been working with the LGBTQ+ community for a number of years. I can offer a safe and non-judgemental space for us to explore what is troubling you. Most of us experience mental health challenges at some point in our lives, and there is still so much pressure to appear like we have it all together. Often just feeling heard is the first step towards healing. There is strength in admitting that we can’t do it all on our own and that we need a bit of help to get through life’s difficulties.

As we face these changing and uncertain times on our planet, you may be coming up against challenges that are exacerbating existing internal struggles. It feels more important than ever to find some sense of certainty and purpose in these difficult times. The very idea of having to isolation can bring on fear and anxiety; uncertainty around our livelihoods can trigger old and new coping strategies that may feel damaging to one's self.

Beginning counselling and psychotherapy can be daunting, but I aim to offer a safe and holding environment within which you can begin to talk about and work through issues that you are struggling with. I work from the premise that we all have unconscious thoughts that can live with us for years, can influence our behaviour and can impact on our ability to form or maintain relationships. Through our work together I hope that by bringing some of these thoughts and feelings into consciousness you can begin to gain insight into the areas of your life which are causing you pain.
