Here are some of the issues I have helped clients explore: depression, anxiety, stress, bereavement, loss, anger, family relationships, relationships with partners, self-harm, lack of self esteem, suicidal thoughts, health-related issues, self-development, creativity, mindfulness, spirituality, search for meaning.
If you decide to work with me it will be rather like setting out on a journey together. On that journey I’ll be your fellow traveller, companion and guide. Whether or not your reason for coming to see me is an external situation that’s impacting your life, a key part of our time together will be to explore your inner world. As we explore that world together you may develop greater insight into patterns of thought and behaviour that served you once but now limit you; you may find alternative ways of approaching difficulties; you may discover a way of being in the world that is more in tune with who you truly are.

I know from experience that opening up to a new person in this way can feel daunting. However, in all of our lives there are times of discomfort, darkness & beauty, & my hope is that our sessions are a place for you to embrace all of this; to laugh, cry, vent, or gain a moment of reflection or calm. Often we can lose sight of how much internal conversations, stories & feelings are holding us back. I offer a safe and calming space to air all this and find a new path to move forward.
