Are you living with the worry and uncertainty that a cancer diagnosis brings? Or maybe you are struggling to cope with an incurable cancer, fearful of the future. You may be trying to rebuild your life after cancer but feel lost or isolated. If this is you or someone close then I can help. Entering the cancer world can feel like being dropped on another planet without a map. You don’t want to be there, and you can't speak the language. As a cancer nurse and counsellor I have supported many people and their loved ones, through the pain of diagnosis, treatment, life after cancer and sadly sometimes their grief, and I can help you.

It's tough opening up to someone but we, via the therapeutical alliance, can create a safe space of trust where there is confidentiality, no judgment and that the client feels comfortable sharing. Here are some testimonials from previous clients for you to ponder: Social anxiety- My gran nearly fainted when she saw me ask someone who works in a shop a question, something I've never done in my life before. Grief- My therapist has helped me as I was feeling lonely and it cheered me and made me realise that I do have a future by myself with friends and family to support me. Low self esteem- I've realised I'm stronger than I thought.

I qualified as a Cognitive Behavioural Therapist in 2009 & since then I have worked with people on a wide variety of issues including anxiety, low self-esteem, depression, relationships, weight issues & OCD .
Do you feel overwhelmed or anxious? Is it all getting too much at times? Do you feel stuck but don’t know how to change? It can help to have someone impartial to talk to who can help you through difficult times and give you some space to deal with whatever is causing your distress. This is where therapy can help. I believe people seek therapy because they want to make a change in their lives. This can be scary, but having felt overwhelmed and anxious at times myself, I hope to be able to offer a supportive, calm, safe environment for you to explore your issues and work towards the best solution for you.

Hello and thank you for looking into my profile. It can be challenging finding the right therapist amidst a sea of warm faces and shiny profiles full of experience. However, I firmly believe that like any relationship, the therapeutic one needs to feel like a 'good fit' too. This outlook forms the ethos of my therapy practice as a counselling psychologist where I work in collaboration with a client to bring change through the healing properties of a relationship. It is my belief that a supportive, accepting relationship allows for deeper self exploration and long-lasting change.

Obsessive-Compulsive (OCD) Counsellors
Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is an anxiety disorder in which people have unwanted and repeated thoughts, feelings, ideas, sensations (obsessions), or behaviours that make them feel driven to do something (compulsions). It affects children, kids, teens and adults. Often the person carries out the behaviours to get rid of the obsessive thoughts, but this only provides temporary relief. Not performing the obsessive rituals can cause great anxiety. A person's level of OCD can be anywhere from mild to severe, but if severe and left untreated, it can destroy a person's capacity to function at work, at school or even to lead a comfortable existence in the home.
