I offer therapy to individuals and couples facing difficulties with their relationships, life and career choices. I believe communication, or lack of, is often at the root of many problems. It can be difficult to express our feelings and often we don't feel that we are heard or understood by the the important people in our lives. It may be that you have low self esteem and find relationships of all kinds difficult. You may be scared or perhaps you don't feel valued or cherished in your relationship. I will help you to explore the reasons behind this and work with you so that you can become the person you would like to be.

Are you looking to adapt, cope, and manage changes in your health and wellbeing? As a Health Psychologist, I specialise in working with women’s health (e.g., menopause and menstrual conditions), stress and burnout, chronic pain, and managing long-term conditions (e.g., heart conditions, diabetes, chronic fatigue, long Covid, and gut health). Psychological approaches can help manage and reduce symptom severity and help improve overall quality of life, so that you feel less restricted by your health and able to start living a rich and meaningful life. My clients often arrive feeling stuck, or depressed, anxious, and overwhelmed.

Having the right fit (“therapeutic alliance”) with your psychologist is viewed as the most crucial factor in the healing process. I would encourage you to choose a practitioner with a broad life experience as well as a clinical training in a range of evidence-based psychological therapies. A former lawyer, I practised human rights & social justice law for years in the courts in the UK. This led to my interest in psychology & trauma & therapies to overcome psychological difficulties. I’ve lived in Canada, France, Italy & Scotland and have travelled all over the world, so I hope to have a background which may help you.

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.

I see therapy as a process that supports us to deepen awareness around who we are and our ways of being in the world. Therapy creates space to work through difficult experiences, thoughts and feelings, which in turn can ignite deep healing and personal growth. I believe you hold the answers - my role is to help you tap into your own internal wisdom. I am experienced in working with a wide range of life situations, so whatever it is that brings you here I would love to hear from you.

Searching for the right therapist can be an energy and time-consuming process, and getting started might feel like a huge step into the unknown. There are various reasons why people decide to try psychotherapy - break up, bereavement, addictions, identity issues, painful past affecting the present or medical diagnosis. No matter what brings you here, I am curious to know your story. Getting in touch with your feelings might be painful. I don’t have any expectations of you. It is ok if you don’t know where and how to start; we will get there at your own pace.

Hello, if you've stumbled on this message, I can only imagine that you're going through a really difficult time. Perhaps you're feeling stuck, overwhelmed or just not quite like yourself and find it hard to imagine a way forward. I understand that it can be challenging to break free from patterns of negative thinking and behaviour, and that's where cognitive behavioural therapy can be incredibly helpful. Sometimes we may get stuck in these patterns, and it can feel like we're tangled up in knots that we can't seem to untie.

Why do we seek counselling? When life seems to move in ways we cannot control, we might feel anxious, overwhelmed or fearful. When we are out of sync with life, we can feel stuck, depressed or isolated. As a result, we can feel the impact on our emotional and mental well-being in our personal and professional lives, not to mention relationships. Do you want to live a more connected life? In therapeutic sessions with me, I will support you to understand and deal with difficult thoughts as well as challenging feelings and emotions so you can live a more integrated life.

Anxiety, perfectionism, and self-criticism; this triple combo of hurt can stop us from going after the things we really want in life. We can find ourselves trying to distract ourselves from the uncomfortable fear of failing, opting out of things we want to do out of fear, and getting caught up in thoughts about 'what ifs' and 'maybe' until we feel frozen. Or we might push ourselves to the point of burning out seeking the validation we only find when we achieve something driven by a fear of the day we are not good enough. If your sense of self-worth has become tied to 'doing' rather than simply existing, I may be able to help.
