I have experience supporting clients with issues such as: anxiety, depression, work place stress, low self esteem/image/confidence, bullying, loneliness, bereavement, suicidal ideation.
Hello and welcome. We all have times when we need some emotional support. You may be feeling sad, anxious, low, or confused or finding it hard to organise your thoughts. You may feel that you may be judged if you talk about what you are thinking and feeling. It may seem as though you are all alone with overwhelming worries, unable to focus on anything or anyone else. You may feel that things don’t feel right for you anymore, and that you want things to change, but don't know where to start. It may seem as though at this point you are still unsure as to what it is that brings you to counselling.

You know you are suffering and everything you have tried so far hasn’t worked. You want help. You keep having the same kinds of experiences over and over again and you are baffled as to how to break the cycle. You know you’ve got some baggage, but you’re not sure what all is in there or how much it’s really weighing you down. You hear other people talk about counselling, maybe you’ve even tried therapy before. You’re considering it now and that is a brave first step.

In troubling times it can sometimes feel like you are alone & seeking help might feel really difficult. Just having a space to make sense of the thoughts that jumble around our heads is invaluable. Perhaps you need to understand yourself, your relationships or events from your past. Sometimes all we need is someone to just listen and hear our story. Counselling promotes insight, fosters self-awareness & creates a stronger, more resilient sense of self. This powerful combination can be the kick-start for the changes in your life you wish to make - sometimes even the smallest changes can make a huge difference in your well-being.

The counselling approach that I’m trained in is called Person Centred and as the name suggests it places great importance in the client being the expert in their own life. It means that I will work with you to understand what might be the cause of whatever difficulties you are experiencing and to bring about the changes that you would like to see. Often clients need some help and guidance to start to make sense of what’s happened in their past and how that may be impacting on the present. Whilst I really enjoy working with adults I am also passionate and experienced in counselling children and young people.

Does something need to change in your life but you don't feel brave enough or know how to do it ? I can help to build your confidence so that you feel better about yourself and develop a clearer understanding of what you want and don't want. I have experienced many challenges in my life in which I have had to search for my own true self, not other people's views of me but the real me who was always waiting to be discovered. I just needed to find her and trust her. We often stop listening to our 'inner voice' and often pay the consequences for it and can remain stuck afraid to do anything. I offer a space where you can be yourself.

I enjoy helping you discover the key to why you are suffering with anxiety, OCD or depression. I can help you feel better and will give you hope, love and acceptance. I understand struggling with anxiety can be overwhelming, particularly if you are experiencing panic attacks. It can literally feel like you are going to die. You are not going to die or going mad. Anxiety is simply your body's way of letting you know things are not quite right. Anxiety creates fear, which triggers the 'flight or fight' response. We can also become locked in a vicious circle of being afraid of the fear.
