I am a Person Centred Counsellor, with fourteen years experience working within a therapeutic environment in various third sector and private settings. My values are strongly rooted in the person centred approach and most importantly for me include treating everyone as an individual, with kindness and respect, which I strive to do in both my client work and in my personal life. I have always loved to help people and working with a wide variety of clients has shown me how fragile life can be and the difficulties it can unknowingly throw at us.

I don’t know if you have ever had the opportunity to share your story where someone really listens. I mean really listens, wanting to know you, your story, your ups and downs. Where nothing is off limits. Space to speak what maybe you’ve never spoken before. Sitting in the counsellee seat is not always easy and opening up to someone you do not know can be daunting. I know that taking that first step requires courage and I would love to walk with you on your journey.

Examining thoughts, feelings, and emotions is a path that leads to adjusting our behaviours and lives in less unfortunate directions. Therapy helps because it is an environment where we try and unfold thoughts, feelings and underlying concerns that seem to be burdening your decisions and life. At times it can be challenging to re-examine difficult situations or simply talk about current issues; however, it is this first step of talking through these moments that can improve one’s life. I am a psychotherapist with experience in the UK and abroad.

We may all, at times, feel confused when encountering challenging situations, and experience painful emotions. In some instances, we are not able to understand and resolve them ourselves, or through the resources available to us. Talking through what is happening for you and having your feelings validated in a safe, non-judgemental atmosphere with a trained professional can be immensely helpful.

What if you could be kinder to yourself? What if you could experience less anxiety and low mood? What if you could be supported in healing from past traumas? What if you could become more assertive and set healthy boundaries? Perhaps you don’t know what’s wrong but you’re feeling unsettled, confused, or stressed. You might have put on a happy mask for too long and you’re exhausted. I invite you to imagine how things could be different and, with this hope - no matter how small the hope might be-, I invite you to get in touch with me.

Children and teenagers can benefit from counselling therapies, and studies show that these are hugely effective, both in the short and long term. For older kids and teens, talking therapy can provide a unique space to safely explore what's going on to make them sad, angry, or anxious. For younger children, using play and art, as well as talking therapy, can help them begin to piece together things that might be difficult for them. Life doesn't always go according to plan, and sometimes things happen that no one is prepared for - an accident, a traumatic experience, a situation no one could have foreseen happening.

My ideal client is someone who has experienced trauma in their life, and is looking for a way to heal its effects, When we are overwhelmed by an event or a series of events, life can feel like an intolerable burden that stretches, to the limit, our ability to cope. We survive rather than live and we are left feeling very unsafe, confused and alone. We want connection with others but, because of our experience, we struggle to trust and stay isolated in order to feel safe. We tend to blame ourselves for how we feel and our inability to manage. We stay immersed in this destructive cycle of self-blame and distress.

Sometimes it can feel like life is spiralling out of control. Like there is a cloud over everything you think and do. You may not feel ‘yourself’ — you may not feel anything at all. And you might not know why… Counselling offers a space — peaceful, understanding, safe, confidential, and non-judgemental — to explore some of these difficulties on your own terms. In counselling, you are in control.

Making the decision to start counselling can feel like a huge step.  It’s also important that you choose a therapist that feels right for you, and that too may feel daunting. Perhaps you’ve been struggling alone, feel overwhelmed or anxious and life feels unmanageable.  Or maybe you feel stuck, lost, hopeless or depressed. Counselling can help us make sense of our life, be transformative and help us understand our relationships with ourselves and others.

I am an experienced psychotherapist working with people of all ages, to help them towards finding a more fulfilling way of life. My style of working is based on the building up of a trusting and open relationship between us, which is the basis for all our therapeutic work. I believe our experiences as children, whether good or bad, affect us throughout our lives; and by being given the time and space to 'tell our story', we develop more insight into why we are the way we are. These insights then guide us towards finding ways to change what we want to change, and value those qualities in ourselves that are beneficial.

Modern life can be hectic. Balancing the daily demands of work, family and social commitments with our desire for happiness, health and enjoyment can feel exhausting. Not to mention the baggage of unprocessed emotions, experiences and limiting self-belief most of us drag around with us. We all need to slow down sometimes and reconnect with ourselves, our true purpose and the things that give our lives meaning. This is not a quick fix to a problem, it is a deeply therapeutic transformation, which is likely to affect every area of your life.
