Life is overwhelming at times. It’s hard to feel you are dealing with it alone. Every journey begins with a first small step. I hope to be able to help you through difficult times to see change and a way ahead. Finding the inner strength to cope can make all the difference. You have the power within you to find the best you and you deserve to. You are the only person who knows your life, challenges, self , feelings and emotions. Don’t struggle in silence. I will be there with and for you each step to hear and listen to what you want and need. You are in control of each session.

I am an experienced psychotherapist working with people of all ages, to help them towards finding a more fulfilling way of life. My style of working is based on the building up of a trusting and open relationship between us, which is the basis for all our therapeutic work. I believe our experiences as children, whether good or bad, affect us throughout our lives; and by being given the time and space to 'tell our story', we develop more insight into why we are the way we are. These insights then guide us towards finding ways to change what we want to change, and value those qualities in ourselves that are beneficial.

Do you feel that no-one understands you or the distress you are feeling? Are you anxious, or depressed, or experiencing difficulties with family and/or intimate relationships? Have you experienced loss or bereavement? Did you experience trauma in your past which is affecting your present? Are you or someone you love and/or care for, living with a chronic or terminal illness? Are you stressed at work? Do you feel overwhelmed by something in your life, or just by life itself? You may be feeling completely alone, or ashamed, or powerless. You may feel as though no-one hears you, or can understand what it is like to be you.

My main focus is on helping people heal from childhood trauma and become their best selves. I have a particular interest in working with neurodivergent individuals, who have often experienced more than their fair share of these. Although my main modalities are EMDR and IFS, my broad training enables me to work flexibly by drawing upon the best psychological theory and models for your circumstances and personality.

Racing thoughts, feeling tense, uneasy, or overloaded, and unsure where to start? Perhaps you've been focused on other people and your own needs have fallen down the pecking order. At times we can take on too much, find it hard to say no or to voice our opinions. It can seem as though life is out of control or out of balance. This can be a slow a build up over time or occur following a significant moment such as a career change, life event, or loss. You are not alone in this and change is possible. I can work with you to increase your self-esteem, find a sense of ease, and move towards a happier way of being.

Whatever your reason for seeking counselling; abuse, anxiety, overthinking, self-esteem, work or relationship issues, to name but a few, you're probably looking for something to change. Counselling offers you a different kind of relationship, one where you can open up, explore and reassess current or historic issues which may be holding you back. With greater understanding comes greater resilience and self-empowerment, which can enable you to make the changes you want in order to enjoy your life more fully. That life can be hard is a fact. That we have to face challenging times alone is not. Get in touch and start that change!

It's OK to not be OK... Everyone struggles sometimes, and when we are struggling, one of the greatest gifts we can give ourselves is to talk to someone about our struggles. My aim is to help you. I have experienced therapy from both sides of the equation and, like you, have struggled with my own difficulties. I believe that all of us have the potential to develop and become who we are supposed to be. Sometimes it takes some digging and self exploration to reach that goal, and I offer walk alongside you as you to do this.

Within my practice, it is imperative that all clients are aware that therapy is taken at their individual pace. Following a thorough assessment, I help clients understand their current difficulties by building a narrative of what past events have contributed to the current problem and what may be maintaining it. From this, we collaboratively create an individual treatment plan that targets the presenting problem/s using the most relevant therapeutic approach available.

Much of what has hurt us in life has happened in relationships with others. I know too, that relationships can also be a source of healing and that a therapeutic relationship can offer a chance to have a different experience of what relationships can be. I offer you a space to explore any issues that are important, or are of concern to you. My own experiences of life, and my personal journey and development, has given me an insight into myself and others that allows me to work in a compassionate and non-judgemental way

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.
