The way we are can madden us, our minds repeatedly returning to anxious, painful or critical thoughts. It can feel as though we are getting nowhere, or, more frustratingly, that we get in our own way, stumbling against familiar issues and destructive behaviours. We can appear to ourselves like outsiders, like there is nowhere that we belong and as if we are less than who we hoped we’d be. Issues emerge of perfectionism, anger, despair, lack of confidence – we understand that self-worth is important, but how do we attain it? Especially in a world which won’t validate us. Our attention may turn inwards, but it’s rarely kind.

As an integrative counsellor, I use a range of approaches and models. I will work with you to help you to explore whatever life issues you may be struggling with. Our sessions gives you the opportunity to discuss your thoughts, feelings and experiences in a non-judgemental and confidential space. I will give you time to work out how to best cope with what you are facing, to come to terms with the past as well as to explore ways to improve your relationships. I will support you but also at times challenge you so that you can honestly evaluate and clarify what really matters to you.

You may experience anxiety, anger, depression, relationship and sexuality difficulties, addictive behavior. Talking therapy helps to understand our emotions so that we can identify and manage negative feelings or unwanted habits. When working together, client and therapist explore present and past events to identify the relation between the present emotions and the early life experiences. By understanding how childhood experiences affect our emotions and behavior as adults, it is possible to understand the root of the problem.

You might feel stuck in patterns that you can't seem to break free of, or have difficulty connecting with other people, or feeling true intimacy. Or you might have been putting on a 'mask' to go out to work and function in the world, but underneath are living with pain in various forms: depression, anxiety, grief or anger. If you feel motivated to make changes but don't know where to start, then psychotherapy might be right for you. With time, as you start to feel safe enough to talk in depth about the things that have been troubling you, therapy can become a very real relationship of trust and openness.

I am an accredited integrative psychotherapist (MBACP) with a special focus on trauma and dissociation. I work relationally, which means that, through the therapeutic relationship, you are encouraged to understand how early experiences and past relationships impact on your present difficulties. In order to access emotions and past traumatic experiences trapped in the body I sometimes use a more mindful and somatic approach in addition to traditional talking therapies. Of special interest to me is how unresolved and traumatic experiences can be healed and transformed by a greater integration of the mind and body.

The world can be frustrating when you get tangled up in unhealthy thinking patterns. You can feel lost, or overwhelmed, with moments of real darkness. That is where I can help. If you lose control of your anger or your anxiety holds you back, we can unpack what makes you tick. If you hide your emotions in harmful behaviour, we can uncover them. What I enjoy most is helping people to build healthy relationships with themselves and others. I used to this when working with the Prince's Trust and Mind, the leading UK mental health agency. This gave me insight into those dealing with addiction, anxiety and depression.
