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.

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.

I believe that the most important relationship we will have over our lifetime is the relationship that we have with ourselves. Throughout our lives we can come to conclusions about ourselves and others that cause us to feel insecure with who we are and around others. My job as a therapist and life coach is to provide a talking space for you to figure out what is holding you back from achieving the relationships and lifestyle you deserve. The more we understand who we really are, the easier it becomes to truly and deliberately create the life we desire.

Having gone through some of my own personal struggles, I know how important it is to have someone listen. To be able to vocalise your thoughts without any fear of judgment. Sometimes it can feel like the end of the road with no-where else to turn. It can feel like there is no hope left. Negative thoughts seem to go round and round in your head. This is the time to reach out and let someone help you. I aim to provide a safe and confidential space to work through issues and will use other evidenced based therapeutic approaches to suit individual needs, such as compassion focused therapy and mindfulness. ​

I could say a lot about my specific qualifications and the type of therapy I offer, but honestly, I believe all types of therapy can work. The most important factor on your journey I believe, is the therapeutic relationship you have with your counsellor or therapist. If you feel you can really trust and open up to your therapist, then your journey of self discovery and healing can truly begin. So please take time to read about me and go with what your gut tells you (its normally right!) I specialise in working with adults experiencing anxiety/low mood and self esteem issues and also survivors of abuse, emotional or physical.

Anxiety and Depression, to me, are natural emotions that everybody experience in response to something. However, these can become a prison if they become a constant in life. I want to help you work through your fears by understanding them and through your depression by offering you a genuine human-human relationship, for you to regain your energy and courage until you feel confident in yourself again.

There are many reasons why someone will seek counselling. Major life changes, even positive ones, can disrupt the balance of everyday life and impact our mental health. Traumas and experiences from our past can intrude on our peace of mind in the present. Bereavement and loss, illness and disability, relationship and work issues can affect our ability to function. Sometimes it feels like we have limited choices and we are unsure of where to turn to for support. Person-centred counselling is a safe and confidential space where you can be yourself and share what is troubling you.

When you know something has to change but are unsure where to start, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) can offer helpful solutions. If you are experiencing anxiety, stress, health issues or low self-esteem, you may be avoiding things, doing too much, or just feeling bad. This can impact on work, sleep, mood and relationships making life harder. CBT can help you recognise unhelpful thoughts and actions and their link to emotional distress. This awareness means you can begin to make helpful changes to manage difficulties and gain balance.

Does past events go over and over your mind? Do you feel the past is still raw and you are constantly re-living it? Stressful childhood or adult traumas can present as anxiety, depression, low self worth, phobias, PTSD, unresolved grief, shame, guilt, panic attacks, self harm etc. Resolving these traumas resolves current symptoms. I use EMDR integrated within an Internal Family Systems (IFS) framework for deeper healing experiences. Both these therapies are powerful and work by accessing the natural healing ability of clients facilitated by the therapist. All work will be remotely carried out over Zoom.

Are past events stopping you from moving forward with your life? Do you feel anxious, depressed, stressed, but you cant pinpoint why? That is often the case with mental health, we know there is something just not working properly but we don't know how to fix it. Although we can't change the past, we can learn not to let it control us. CBT is a talking therapy that can help you manage your problems by changing the way you think and behave. CBT believes that your thoughts about a certain situation can often affect how you feel emotionally and physically. I can help you change those unhelpful thinking styles. Just say hello.
