Starting therapy can seem daunting and scary at first. But it's the first step you have taken to embark on this journey. Feeling isolated and not able to make sense of the world around you? Questioning all that you have grown up with? Racing thoughts constantly clouding your mind? Feeling detached, anxious or upset? Not sure how to process what you are experiencing? All this seems pretty overwhelming but more common than you think. Through acceptance and kindness why not allow yourself to be able to make sense of all this through therapy. Let each session speak for itself and discover different parts of yourself.

I view therapy as a collaborative space where one can be seen, heard, and understood. Our work together will support you to delve into the depths of the experiences you wish to explore, whether from your past, present, or anticipated future. I will pose gentle questions, offer sensitive reflections, and hold a confidential and compassionate space for the emotions and vulnerabilities that arise. Together, we will learn to care for the neglected parts of yourself, explore patterns you may find unhelpful, and listen to your inner needs and feelings, fostering a space for acceptance and growth.

Are you struggling? Perhaps you feel you’re stuck and fear your're going round in circles. Sometimes we need support to make sense of our lives, find our way back, forward or sideways. Sometimes, we need someone else to hear, understand us and be alongside us on our journey, to help us see the broader view. Perhaps you’ve had or are having a hard time but don’t know how to change or even if that’s possible. But you hope for something different, for growth as all living creatures do, in the same way new growth reaches for the light. Whatever it is, life is inevitable and change is possible even if it doesn’t feel that way just now.

Therapy can be for anyone, it can be for growth, healing and learning, as much as for working through something. Choosing to set aside a pocket of time and space just for you, can provide relief from stresses of modern-day living, giving you a chance to recognise what is really important to you and working out what steps you want to take towards the life you want for yourself. I provide a safe, confidential and non-judgmental space for you to explore things that are troubling you, process past experiences and work towards any goals you might have.

The last few years have been disorientating, changing us and the world around us. It's no wonder we're feeling more anxious and confused as we adjust and process the last few years. You may find that issues you coped with before are now magnified and more painful. Difficult experiences in your past can resurface and you may feel there is no-one you can be honest with about your thoughts. Perhaps you had an increased workload during the pandemic and are now at the stage of burnout? Whatever you are struggling with, sharing your issues in confidence, at your pace can help you gain the clarity and control you need in your life.

Life can be stressful. Balancing the pressure of our commitments with our desire for health, happiness and authenticity can feel exhausting or even impossible. We all need to slow down and carve out some space in our lives to connect with our inner selves and the deeper meaning beyond our everyday existence. I offer a holistic approach to counselling and therapy, combining evidence based practice with holistic tools such as mindfulness, meditation, somatic experiencing, self-care, personal and spiritual growth. I am committed to a deepening path of open-hearted living and self discovery.

Are you concerned that your use of substances or problematic behaviour is getting out of control and is causing problems in your life? Or are you worried that you will not be able to cope without them, even though you would like to cut back or stop? Do you feel locked into thinking styles which are starting to dominate your life such as anxiety or depression and don't know what to do? Imagine if you could regain control of your life and situation so you felt happier, and were no longer dependant or worried about your substance use or problematic behaviours? Recovery is possible but sometimes we need a bit of help to get there

Not feeling fulfilled? Stress and anxiety getting in the way? Shame around past events or the present perhaps? Maybe these affect your relationships, family, work or generally your self esteem. Importantly, neither searching the internet nor self help books have been enough, and you need a human relationship. Someone who will listen to you without judgement, and who will attend to you and help you process your sometimes overwhelming feelings. Equally, you may be looking for a psychotherapist to work with by way of self development.

I get that it’s not easy to ask for support and admit to vulnerability. I view therapy as as a journey of discovery, healing and growth. Through 'experiential learning' and 'dialogue' we will work with your ‘embodied awareness’ of ‘how’ you are in relationships, ‘how’ you make choices and ‘how’ you co-create your world. We will look at where you feel 'stuck' and what seems 'difficult'; we will 'stay with' the feelings and complexity that may unfold. I believe change happens organically when we have enough 'support', fully acknowledge the situation we are in, and commit to work.If that resonates with you, please contact me.

Sometimes we experience changes or traumas that leave us struggling with the pressures of life, relationships, work, or studies. This can affect our self-esteem, our sense of identity, and our ability to cope. This can become overwhelming and may lead us to unhelpful or harmful thoughts and behaviours. With help, we can overcome our difficulties and learn to manage our emotions more effectively. With compassion, empathy, respect, and a safe space, we feel heard, considered, and valued. By understanding our thoughts and behaviours we can feel empowered to make positive changes that can lead us to fuller and more enjoyable lives.

People seek therapy & counselling for different reasons & you will have your own unique life experiences that may cause you unhappiness or you may find yourself at crisis point feeling unsure of what to do next. I have worked with many different clients from across the social & cultural spectrum from medical professionals to artists, full-time students to stay at home parents & retirees. I understand that often it is the first step, no matter who we are, that can feel the hardest; the reaching out & making contact. You may want to explore options for change, make sense of a difficult experience or gain new strategies for coping.

Having worked in the field of mental health for over 27 years, I have a deep understanding of the challenges people are faced with on a daily basis. How we experience these challenges can become overwhelming and we can feel alone, helpless and disconnected. There may be times when it's useful to seek help outside of your current circle of support by talking with a counsellor and I can help you find new ways to explore and manage the difficulties you are experiencing. I work with individuals & couples to offer short-term counselling to address immediate concerns, and long term counselling to address complex issues.
