Life can seem difficult or even overwhelming at times. When we feel this way counselling can provide the space for you to share the difficulties you're experiencing. And by understanding these problems more clearly, you can start to make changes to your way of life and start to live more fully. As we explore your worries and the underlying issues, you will gain insight into your emotional reactions and behavioural patterns and begin to build a new self-awareness

Hello, I am a Psychotherapist, EMDR practitioner and Dramatherapist. In therapy, participants are supported to use creative expression to set goals, solve problems, express feelings and achieve improved mental health. Together in therapy there will be opportunities to consider how your personal life informs the way you experience the world. My work is influenced by trauma-informed approaches, which allow us to look at ourselves and understand why we may suffer. I am also a qualified secondary school teacher with extensive experience of working with people with trauma, autism, ADHD, anxiety, bereavement and loss.

As a COSCA Accredited person-centred counsellor I provide a place of safety and confidentiality where you can discuss openly what is troubling you, a place where you’ll be listened to. It may be that you are stressed, angry, frustrated, anxious, depressed, feeling lost or simply stuck, not sure what to do or how to express how you feel. Maybe you have suffered a loss or a bereavement and need help to find your way of moving on. I will be accepting and non-judgemental of what you have to say and work with you to help you find your answer.

I assume you are here because you need help/understanding, or seek direction with your life. I completely understand those reasonings and they were some of my motivations to train as a psychotherapist. I have been a client as well as counsellor and therefore aware of that trepidation of taking those first steps towards therapy. I'm glad I did because it empowered me in my desire to do what was right — for me. I am passionate about supporting those struggling with issues which is why I keep my prices as low as possible. You are a valuable individual. You've started your journey now see where it leads you.

Letting go is about learning how to take control, feel better and become more embodied. Change is not easy, but the sages, mystics and wise amongst us know that in order to move forward and live the best version of our lives we need to accept where we are and ask ourselves if this is ok or all we want. When we accept where we are, we can make the decisions necessary for that change we may feel is required. At that point we have already begun the process of Letting-go. It is also a point where you may decide to come & chat to me. ‘Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced.’ (J. Baldwin)

Are you seeking therapy because you want to make your life better? It feels like life has always been and uphill battle for you and never felt easy. Anxiety and fear seem to be constant companions that you live with. Maybe you work offshore, a traditionally male environment where feelings and emotions are a sign of weakness and could harm your career. Perhaps your relationships have always been difficult, you struggle to express your feelings and have your voice heard. Perhaps the trauma that you experienced growing up has left you unable to trust people and what they say. You feel stuck and overwhelmed. You would like answers?
