With 20 years' experience, I am a leading authority in marriage, couple and relationship counselling. I have had the pleasure and privilege of helping countless couples resolve their differences and re-establish an emotional connection. I am passionate about my work and the changes I help to facilitate. When you’re having a relationship or marital problems, it’s natural to want to talk about it. Unfortunately, turning to those around you isn’t always possible or the best option. What you really need is an independent ear — someone who can view your relationship without bias and who won’t take sides.

Perhaps you are at a place right now where you are not feeling able to manage like you normally would. I would love to work with you to help understand what is happening for you that is impacting on your mental fitness and getting in the way of you living how you would like to. Therapy is not always a quick fix, there will no doubt be challenges. However, we would be working together to navigate through this difficult time, and that is something that I can offer you.

I have a particular interest in working with people with relationship problems, including their relationship with their self and, with their own emotions and emotional regulation. This can manifest as social anxiety, with an underlying sense of not being good enough or being odd/not fitting in with other people and society’s expectations. If you struggle with your own identity - not knowing your own likes/dislikes/values (sometimes called codependency), then get in touch. We can explore together what gets in the way of you knowing (and accepting) the real you.

I work with clients who normally function well in their daily lives but are currently experiencing feelings of stuckness, frustration, or a lack of direction or meaning. This can be the result of a number of life events, such as a loss (e.g. of relationship, employment) or an interpersonal conflict, accompanied by feelings of low mood, disappointment, a sense of meaninglessness and, occasionally, anxiety that is difficult to explain. The clients I work best with are curious and motivated to explore their thinking patterns, emotions, and behaviour. They are willing to be challenged and to try new, more satisfying ways of being.

As human beings we are complex. We may have emotional responses which we believe are shameful or embarrassing, causing us to deny them. Depression, anxiety and stress can take hold in our daily lives. We may feel stuck in the one place and too overwhelmed to know what to do or where to ask for help. This, alongside our jobs, families, relationships, bereavements, and the pressure of life can feel overwhelming. Some of us may have struggled with our mental health for years, for others, these hardships may come out of nowhere. We may have experienced traumatic events in our past that are affecting our present.

From childhood we are given messages about the ‘right’ and ‘wrong’ ways to feel, think and behave – messages that can teach us that we must hide or supress aspects of our authentic selves in order to be acceptable to others. If you’re an LGBTQ+ person, your sexuality and gender might completely unrelated to what has brought you to counselling, but you still want to know that your therapist will affirm these parts of you. In my online therapy room, you are invited to be your whole uncensored self in the company of somebody who values you unconditionally and really listens. I am a queer therapist with trauma informed training.

Psychotherapy offers a safe and supportive environment where individuals can explore and increase understanding of their emotions, thoughts, and behaviors. You may have concerns about events you've experienced, patterns you're engaging in or a general feeling of being stuck or dysregulated. In our sessions, we'll work collaboratively, exploring your inner world, the many “parts” of you from a place of compassion, curiosity, and presence. When you’re able to turn towards even the most challenging parts of you with this new lens, significant shifts begin to emerge. These shifts create space for healing, growth, and lasting change.

Female Counsellors

Does it matter what gender my therapist is?

In general, this is not an important factor, as there is no relationship between a therapist’s gender and their efficacy. Some clients, however, prefer to see therapists of a particular gender, whether due to their own past experiences with men and women, or ingrained beliefs about how people of different genders think and behave. Exploring the roots of such preferences and considering what one wants to address in therapy can help someone determine whether their therapist’s gender truly matters to them.

Should I see a female therapist?

Many people—not just women—prefer to see a female therapist, either because they believe that a woman will be able to relate to their specific challenges (for example, sexism in the workplace) or because they imagine feeling more comfortable disclosing sensitive information to a woman. Such beliefs may not turn out to be accurate, however, and adhering too rigidly to a gender preference can at times hinder a client from finding the best therapeutic match.

Do therapists get specific training to help with women’s concerns?

Therapists are trained to provide care to clients of any gender. However, some therapists—both men and women—may pursue additional training in feminist therapy, gender-specific issues, or women’s mental health. Female clients may wish to ask prospective therapists whether they have received specific training in the client’s primary area(s) of concern, or whether they have worked extensively with women on issues similar to their own.

How can I inquire about a therapist’s experience in treating women?

It’s OK—even encouraged!—to ask a therapist directly whether and how often they have treated women in the past, or whether they have treated women dealing with the client’s most prominent concern(s). Competent therapists will be happy to share their educational background, preferred treatment modalities, and prior client experience to help an individual find the therapist best suited to their needs.
