If you've arrived here, you are already thinking about counselling. You might feel depressed, anxious or overwhelmed and finding it difficult to cope with the challenges of life. Perhaps you have experienced a recent loss, had a sudden change of circumstances or are struggling with relationships. Maybe you don't even know what's troubling you. Research shows positive change happens when there is a good match between client and counsellor. It’s difficult to choose a counsellor or know what to expect from counselling without having a face-to-face meeting. This is why I offer a free 30-min intro session where we can meet

I am an experienced BACP accredited psychodynamic counsellor, currently based in Phoenix Therapy Practice. I believe that no issue is too small nor too great to bring to therapy – if it causes you pain, you will benefit from opening up about it in the long run. I believe everyone’s internal world needs to be approached with curiosity and openness. My approach is rooted in traditional psychoanalysis but progressive in the way I practice it. It is suitable for adults of all ages and backgrounds and also LGBTQ/kink and poly-friendly.

I offer an empathic, non judgemental and respectful space. By building a relationship based on acceptance it becomes possible to look at, recognise and understand where problems in your life have arisen

At times in our lives (perhaps especially in the current situation) we all are capable of experiencing feelings we find distressing, or behavioural patterns we struggle with, or even 'just' a sense of unease, or a lack of confidence, or stuckness. It might be that you feel out of sync with the world or with yourself, accompanied by feelings of sadness, hopelessness, isolation, guilt, anger, anxiety or stress, or simply a sense that there is somehow more to you then what you presently sense. I can support you to work through and bring more clarity to, or acceptance of, those issues you are currently experiencing.

Are you living your best life? Life can be complicated. At times, we find ourselves struggling to cope with these challenges. The cost to us of living with unresolved issues can significantly impact upon our lives, on our sense of self, and on the relationships we have with the people around us. I am trained to work with unconscious material. Time and time again I witness how peoples relationships improve, and how their lives simplify, as their understanding and connection with themselves deepens. Therapy requires a curiosity of mind and a commitment to the process, but the rewards can be profound.

**As of Dec 2020 I am fully booked until further notice** 'Should I go to therapy?' This question may take some time to contemplate before you decide that you are ready for counselling or psychological therapy. When any type of mental health or emotional concern affects your daily life and function, therapy can help you work through the difficulties you are experiencing. You do not have to be diagnosed with a mental health problem to benefit from therapy. Many people in therapy seek help to talk through life challenges such as relationship problems, grief, parenting difficulties, or family struggles.

We will all encounter challenges during our lives. It may be difficult to ask for help but in reaching out we show strength - it takes courage to be vulnerable, open up and acknowledge we need support. I specialise in working with low self esteem, transforming deep-rooted issues, anxiety, depression and feelings of being stuck - whether it be in your relationship, in your job, or life in general. I have been working on an individual basis with clients both short and long term since 2015. Counselling can allow you to gain inner clarity and strength, as well as help you to live a more meaningful life, and achieve your potential.

I can help people who don’t feel they are living their best lives due to anxiety, low mood, poor self-esteem and negative self-talk overcome these problems and manifest a life that is driven by values, aspirations and contentment. As humans, we all have a need to find a purpose and meaning, and this can be difficult if we allow our worries, fears, doubts and unhelpful emotions to take control of the drivers seat. Whilst we can never eliminate negative feelings, I can help you develop an accepting relationship with them so you take re-take control of the drivers seat and move forward in the direction you want with purpose.

Hello, I am a queer-identified therapist and I have been working with the LGBTQ+ community for a number of years. I can offer a safe and non-judgemental space for us to explore what is troubling you. Most of us experience mental health challenges at some point in our lives, and there is still so much pressure to appear like we have it all together. Often just feeling heard is the first step towards healing. There is strength in admitting that we can’t do it all on our own and that we need a bit of help to get through life’s difficulties.

As we face these changing and uncertain times on our planet, you may be coming up against challenges that are exacerbating existing internal struggles. It feels more important than ever to find some sense of certainty and purpose in these difficult times. The very idea of having to isolation can bring on fear and anxiety; uncertainty around our livelihoods can trigger old and new coping strategies that may feel damaging to one's self.

At different stages in our lives, we encounter difficulties that prevent us from fully enjoying life. It can be anything from anxiety and depression, to the loss of a person (through death or relationship breakdown), to deeply rooted emotional issues (such as low self-esteem or inability to form relationships). Other times, we are unable to fully explain what is troubling us - we just know that something is. Asking for help can be difficult - finding the right kind of help and support can be more challenging. With each person and difficulty being unique, I tailor my approach to suit each client's needs and communication style.
