Counselling is a safe place for you to stop, take stock and explore the parts of your life that you are finding difficult. It is a time for you to use for whatever you decide, and always without pressure or judgement. I have particular experience in working with trauma and sexual abuse, but you can use counselling for all sorts of issues, for example self-esteem, stress, depression , anxiety, bereavement, relationships, suicidal thoughts, harassment at work, identity issues, breakup, or decision-making. Dealing with ‘unwanted habits’ of whatever kind can be a large part of counselling.

I'm a HCPC registered clinical psychologist, accredited EMDR practitioner and am Level 1 IFS (Internal Family Systems) trained. My career spans over 2 decades in both the NHS and independent sector. 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.

I have a passion for working with people and assisting them to work through ongoing issues so that they can for-fill their full potential and live their best life. Attachment is at the core of all of my work, looking at how attachment styles influence a persons way of being. Attachment relates to all aspects of who we are, how we develop and how we form and interact in relationships. Gaining an understanding of attachment, raising awareness of why we behave in certain ways and react to specific situations can help us change and stop repeating negative behaviours & patterns.

Changing anything starts with the decision to try! Ask yourself what you want from therapy. Do you need to discuss your thoughts? Do you need to discuss how you're feeling? Do you feel stuck with these issues? Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is one way to effectively address this. Support is key here & working with me in CBT can aid change! You have to challenge to change and putting your trust in an experienced CBT Therapist is the first step to change & I assure you of a confidential & professional ear at all times. Work out what you want and need and go for it, get the help...you have everything to gain by putting yourself first!

So if it's anxiety or depression , stress or bereavement, or you just feel that something's not quite right but you can't put your finger on it, why not give Counselling a try.
Hi, I am a person-centred trained qualified counsellor. I believe in giving my clients a warm, inviting and safe space in which you can bring any issues you choose to explore. I am not going to tell you how to live your life or judge you, but help you find a balance that works best for you through exploration of the issues you bring to each session. I have a lot of life and client experience that enables me to understand and fully empathise with many situations. Many people need help with coping with life at some point.

Before completing my Doctorate in Clinical Psychology, I completed a Masters in Psychological Therapy, focussing on treating adults with problems such as anxiety, depression & sleep disorders using a CBT framework.
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.

At times issues and difficulties in your life might be causing you to feel unfulfilled or distressed, or even just a sense of unhappiness within you. Counselling is a process of talking about these issues and working through them confidentially with a Counsellor. Counselling also helps you address your problems in a positive way, enabling you to clarify these issues, explore options, develop strategies and increase self-awareness. I will offer you a confidential time and space to explore all of these in a very supportive way. I aim to work with you in a way which offers understanding, support and enables you have new perspectives.

Depression Counsellors
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
