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.

We all go through periods in our lives when things are more difficult for us and sometimes, we can get a bit stuck in our ways of being and thinking. It may be helpful to talk to someone outside your circle of family and friends, in a confidential space about whatever is troubling you and to find ways forward out of that ‘stuckness’. Counselling can help to identify your strengths and resources, find new perspectives and develop new skills. I will work with you to identify and clarify the difficulties you are experiencing and together we will seek ways forward which best suit you.

There are often challenging times in life when it is very difficult to manage emotionally. I am genuinely interested in supporting you feel better enabling you to cope in difficult situations. I am a Cognitive Behavioural Therapist. CBT provides a framework to support and manage your thoughts, feelings and behaviours in a more helpful way. Through looking at your self-defeating patterns of thinking and behaviour in therapy you will become more self-aware and hopefully more optimistic about your life. I will help you begin to make sense of your experiences freeing you to move forward with your life and reach your goals.

Making the decision to see a therapist is a big step forward in dealing with what is troubling you and it can be difficult to know where to start. Finding the right therapist for you is an important first step. I aim to provide a comfortable and supportive environment, where we will work through whatever is troubling you at your own pace. You will be listened to, accepted and respected regardless of what you tell me. I will not tell you what to do, but will do my best to support you in working through any difficulties you may be experiencing and to give you the space to make the decisions that are right for you.

Do you feel as if you have lost a sense of who you are, what it means to be you? Maybe life’s responsibilities have meant your needs have always come second or you have always had a particular role that limits you in freely expressing your own needs. Maybe relationships or circumstances in your life have dominated your choices, and external judgement and expectations tend to shape and influence your life more than you’d like. Or perhaps a life event has led you to re-evaluate and reassess what feels important. It can be confusing and disempowering to feel so disconnected from the things in life that make you feel like you.

Is your anxiety impacting your quality of life? Are you beginning to think your way of coping is doing you more harm than good? Maybe you don’t want to open up family or friends, due to feelings of shame, or your uncertainty as to how they will react. It’s hard keeping it all in and can sometimes become unbearable. That’s when counselling can help.

We all experience times when we feel isolated, misunderstood or lonely; we have the impression that we can’t function anymore in our daily life. Keeping it all inside and being unable to share our thoughts and feelings with someone for fear of being judged or criticised is not a pleasant thought. As humans, we need to talk, and we make sense of our individual circumstances and pain by processing them. I am here to support you through your difficult times.

If you're struggling with emotional distress, psychotherapy can help. Understanding your symptoms is often the first step towards recovery. If you can see a rational explanation for your problems, you are likely to engage in a hopeful way with therapeutic methods to restore your mental health. I would listen carefully to your account of what you face on a daily basis and to what it was like to be a child, an adolescent and an adult in your particular family setting. I would also be interested in what helps you cope. Reclaiming your normal life will involve building on your own strengths and on relationships with those you trust.

Life is full of ups and downs. There are times it can feel like an endless uphill battle with little reprieve. Maybe you are noticing an increase in feeling anxious, depressed, stressed or overwhelmed. Perhaps you are having issues at work, your relationships, low self esteem or the loss of a loved one. If you have experienced childhood or adult trauma(s) there may be painful memories, flashbacks or nightmares disrupting your life, even many years after the event. I work with most mental health concerns but I specialise in trauma, dissociation, anxiety and self esteem.

While Doctors make up around 40% of my clients, I have helped people from all walks of life in my 24 years of practice, and if you are looking for a compassionate and experienced therapist, I may be right for you. I can help with; attachment, trauma, anxiety, depression, overwork / work stress, personal relationships, and more. A healthy self-relationship is, I believe, a much neglected and misunderstood area and one I help many people with each year. Video sessions can be an easy way to access a skilled practitioner with 20+ years of experience. You can find out more information about me on my website and read my blog.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues.

Can I afford counselling?
