I am here to help you explore and make changes in your life, to nudge you into awareness and help you see things from a new perspective, to share issues, events, worries, challenges, giving you space and time to reflect, to find and arrange the jigsaw pieces, help with trauma or a traumatic event, a change or loss, finding or revealing your true self or sexuality, difficulty just being...we can work together with whatever you bring. I offer a safe, confidential and non-judgemental place to explore

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.

I am committed to build with you an attitude of resilience, emotional responsibility, hope and personal growth. As trained in CBT, I incorporate in my approach not only the therapeutic means but the principles of the positive psychology as well. You will be equipped with new coping skills, self-help tools and productive mental stamina. You will be strongly encouraged to re-evaluate your experience with your problem and see it as challenging but not overwhelming. You will be able to strengthen your personality as well as finding personal meaning and a fulfilling happy life.

You may know exactly what you want from counselling or it may just be a feeling that something isn't right. It might be issues arising from the past or events that are affecting you right now - whatever it is, I believe talking about it can make a real difference. Counselling can feel quite daunting at times and I will be there to listen with warmth and empathy; to be alongside you when there are tough times and to laugh with you when life feels a little lighter. Working together, we can explore what's bothering you and perhaps look at other ways of coping with life so you can move forward with confidence and optimism.

Throughout our lives most of us will experience some form of emotional, mental or relationship problems. These problems can be related to our work, our home life, our past or simply come out of the blue. Sometimes it might just be a mild inconvenience, but more often it can affect our lives profoundly. Either way it can be hard to admit that help might be needed. And harder still to find the best help. That’s where I come in. With psychotherapy or counselling I can help you discover what the issues are and work with you to fix them.

Do you feel low, anxious or really stressed about work/home life? Is there a trauma or difficult experience in your past that you would like to process, to feel lighter and able to face everyday stressors more easily? Life feels extra difficult this way, especially when you are enduring, rather than enjoying life. If we don't change our patterns, these feelings persist and can lead to longer term problems such as work or relationship difficulties. Engaging in therapy is a courageous, proactive, and positive step. My clients often tell me they feel relief after the first session, as they release the weight of their emotional pain.

Trauma can include life-threatening events or simply moments where you were overwhelmed and felt helpless. A troubling or terrifying event has an impact on the whole person – it is held in the body, changes ways of thinking, and often comes with an overwhelming set of emotional and behavioural responses. At times, these changes and responses are unhelpful and seriously affect people’s quality of life and their ability to move forward. Working together, we explore and come to understand your current responses. We identify tools that you can use to rebuild your life in a way that works for you.

Feeling on-edge, anxious or overwhelmed? Know that something needs to change but not knowing where to start or not feeling like you have the confidence to do so? Working with a professional in a Cognitive Behavioural Therapy Coaching approach can help to identify and overcome challenges and difficulties you might be facing you in your life. It combines practical coaching techniques – setting out clear, manageable goals in line with personal values– with the cognitive behavioural approach when needed – to challenge and change unhelpful thinking and behaviour which might be holding you back, in a trauma informed and supportive space.

It is a courageous step to reach out to a therapist and, in recognition of this, I have wholeheartedly devoted 30 years of my life to helping people create real and lasting change. I have completed a vast amount of psychological training and am guided by extensive experience in really hearing the parts of my clients’ experience which are keeping them ‘stuck’ or are barriers to happiness. I help people to understand crucial scientific findings about how the brain affects our happiness and I use the most effective techniques to help clients become liberated from unhelpful repetitive behaviours or thought patterns.

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.

Therapy creates the opportunity to build a secure foundation for wellbeing. Understanding your needs, emotions and thoughts becomes an empowering part of life. My work as a therapist is based on the knowledge that change is possible. Through our work together, you can gain concrete tools to help handle stressful situations, see things from a new perspective and challenge unhelpful thoughts and beliefs to help lead to living a more balanced, fulfilled and empowered life.

It can get overwhelming sometimes. So many thoughts or unpredictable emotions. Maybe you are experiencing stress or depressive feelings, maybe you just don’t feel being yourself lately. Maybe it seems as there is no one who listens or is just too hard to share. Maybe you might feel lost or reached a point in life where direction feels very blurry or non-existent. Maybe something significant has changed, you moved, lost someone, are on a crossroad and suddenly it feels harder even much harder then ever before. I am offering compassionate space to express your thoughts, emotions and where you can feel really heard.
