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.

Have you had a recent difficult experience? Or maybe you are going through something painful just now? Perhaps you feel stuck and unable to move forward? It can often be difficult to understand feelings such as anxiety, overwhelm, panic, distress, fear, immobilisation, anger or sadness. Working collaboratively with you, at your own pace, I can help you process your feelings and faciliate a deeper and compassionate understanding of your current situation. In exploring and talking about both your present and past experiences and memories, I can offer you a safe and calming space to help you move forward.

Whether you want to explore your past, understand your present, or think about your future, I aim to provide you with a safe, empathic, inclusive and non-judgemental space in which we can learn from each other. My approach is psychodynamic, which is based on the premise that we often unconsciously repeat patterns laid down in childhood, whether healthy or unhealthy. The unhealthy patterns can be difficult to understand on our own, but in the counselling relationship, we can explore the meaning of our experiences and learn how to be more true to ourselves.

Counselling with me is a deeply personal experience which focusses on growing and healing from difficult experiences and encouraging transformative change. I usually find myself working with adults and young people who are going through or have gone through big life changes and it's rocked their sense of self. Maybe they have learned to cope or just get on with it, pushing down their emotions and are no longer able to manage the impact this is having on them and their life. Living life like this can feel stressful, upsetting, and full of tension while impacting so many things around them.
