Sometimes it can feel like life is spiralling out of control. Like there is a cloud over everything you think and do. You may not feel ‘yourself’ — you may not feel anything at all. And you might not know why… Counselling offers a space — peaceful, understanding, safe, confidential, and non-judgemental — to explore some of these difficulties on your own terms. In counselling, you are in control.

I offer a safe and confidential space within which we might explore what is happening in any area of a person's life, how to bring meaning to a situation or to find ways to go forward. My approach is to work with each person’s unique lived experience and own way of making meaning about their life. I work in a collaborative and co-creative way that is respectful of each person’s autonomy and wisdom to know or discover what they need. It is not my role to diagnose or pathologise a person’s experience. Rather it is to to accompany the people I work alongside, with a focus on how the person experiences themselves and others.

Although my training is in person-centred counselling and psychotherapy I work in a pleuristic way agreeing with the client what issues are most important to them and setting goals together, I believe this is more important than working rigidly within one modality.

Difficulties and stress in the relationships that matter most to you can be a source of distress, anxiety, frustration or despair. When all your efforts to make things better still haven't worked, maybe it's time to think about trying a different approach. Working with a experienced relationship counsellor can give you the time and space to explore what is troubling you. I work with individual adults and couples from all backgrounds, abilities, sexual orientations and gender identities to help them gain insight and fresh perspectives on life, relationships, and other issues that cause distress.

To imagine an 'ideal client' is counterintuitive task in therapy. In many ways, the work of therapy is that of the 'un-ideal' and is concerned with things gone awry, hopes dashed, loves lost and disappointments had. Few clients come to therapy if they feel all is right in their world. This means my ideal client is in many ways unideal: they are human. Every client has flaws and struggles as all humans do, but they are still worthwhile and valuable as an individual. Really, the only thing I do prefer in a client is that they come to therapy of their own volition, ready to undertake the project of therapy and willing to do the work.

I work with both anxiety caused by particular present stressors in your life (e.g. work related anxiety or a life event such as pregnancy) as well as long-term anxiety (e.g. social anxiety).
