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

At times in our lives (perhaps especially in the current situation) we all are capable of experiencing feelings we find distressing, or behavioural patterns we struggle with, or even 'just' a sense of unease, or a lack of confidence, or stuckness. It might be that you feel out of sync with the world or with yourself, accompanied by feelings of sadness, hopelessness, isolation, guilt, anger, anxiety or stress, or simply a sense that there is somehow more to you then what you presently sense. I can support you to work through and bring more clarity to, or acceptance of, those issues you are currently experiencing.

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.

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.

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.
