If you are dealing with difficulties or are feeling increasingly aware of the need to talk to someone, I am here. I am a qualified and experienced counsellor working with adults experiencing a range of issues. I believe that we are all valuable individuals with our own unique experiences and sometimes need a confidential, safe environment in which to gain powerful insight and life changing perspective. You will find my approach to be warm, grounding and attuned to you as an individual. My clients often refer to the trust we build between us as allowing them the space and safety to say anything.

When we are trying to make sense of our situation or understand ourselves, we may feel we need someone to hear us. It could be something in particular that is causing you difficulties such as anxiety, stress, depression, grief or relationship issues. Or it can be a feeling of uncertainty, something about how you are feeling isn't quite right. We are all part of an interconnected world influenced by and influencing our relationships and situations. For this reason I give attention to your personal history, life situation and narrative.

Hello and a warm welcome. Counselling is a process in which a trained therapist can help you to understand and deal with difficult emotions that you may be experiencing. These can be linked with previous difficult life experiences. People often seek counselling when they are going through challenging times in their lives. You may be feeling low, anxious or depressed. I can help you make sense of what is happening and try to help you to find ways of dealing with this.

Sometimes we can feel a bit broken. We all need to heal and repair every so often. You may be finding that getting out of bed is a struggle, noticing that you don’t enjoy the things you used to, you might be feeling disconnected from your life and finding yourself a bit worried about how past experiences are affecting your life now.

People come to counselling for many reasons. Sometimes this decision is motivated by a need for change or perhaps having to deal with unexpected change. For others it may be a desire to talk, to understand and be understood. I believe there can be real value in talking with someone who is trained and experienced to listen in a way that allows you to feel heard and understood. I provide a safe and non-judgemental space where we can explore the issues that you want to address.

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.

Living with difficult family relationships, isolation, grief, loss, worry or prejudice can leave you feeling anxious, stuck, depressed, shut down, disconnected or drained. Maybe the values or beliefs of your family or culture are at odds with your authentic identity, creating an inner conflict. Perhaps you have become wrapped in your job or the expectations of others and have lost touch with who you really are. Have you learned to put others first to the detriment of yourself? Maybe you jump into romantic relationships too quickly and deeply – or have decided you are better off by yourself and yet part of you longs for connection.

Do you often feel a sense of guilt or shame around food? Do thoughts of food become intrusive or overwhelming? Are you often binging or eating until you feel uncomfortable or sick (Binge Eating Disorder)? Perhaps you are fixated on 'healthy' or 'clean' eating (Orthorexia Nervosa)? Maybe you 'purge' by excessively exercising, restricting, making yourself sick, using laxatives, or have a history of yo-yo dieting (Bulimia Nervosa)? Perhaps you avoid whole food groups and are often called a 'fussy' or 'picky' eater (ARFID)? Or a combination of any of the above (EDNOS)? It sounds like you are struggling with an Eating Disorder!

Making the decision to start therapy is a courageous one. And if you are thinking about therapy you already recognise the need for someone to talk to about the difficulties you are experiencing. It can be challenging, but therapy can help you make sense of your life, be transformative and help you better understand your relationship with yourself and others.

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.

What you are struggling with at the moment is understandable and meaningful, and taking the risk of talking to someone is courageous and hopeful. Sometimes, it can be hard to identify exactly what's wrong, or what might help things feel better. It is my intention for us to work together to explore what's going on for you, so that you don't have to do it alone. My energy and commitment aims to facilitate a warm and trusting therapeutic relationship, which you can rely on. I will trust your system and where it takes us as we discover together what hurts and where we might find healing.

Sometimes life is difficult and you want something different, a change for yourself. Therapy is a space where we can share our stories, our histories that influence the person we are, the suffering we may experience. Through this process, we can develop new insights into what has shaped us as people. I offer a safe, empathic and confidential space where you can explore, without judgement, your story and any personal difficulties you are experiencing. I will work with you, in your rhythm, to help you deepen your awareness of your experiences, thoughts, and embodied feelings.

We all encounter ups and downs in our lives, and most of the time we can overcome them, and sometimes we may need a helping hand. If you find yourself feeling overwhelmed by emotions that are difficult to understand, gaining a deeper insight through exploration may help in managing those feelings. I can offer a safe and non-judgemental space to delve into what is going on for you. Counselling can help with gaining a better understanding of your feelings and thought processes and find your own solutions to problems.
