At certain times in our lives most of us can reach a place where things aren’t quite how we want them to be. It may be a feeling of ‘stuckness’ with a close relationship or at work. Or it may be a much deeper feeling of depression or despair. The counselling room is a unique space where you are free to explore – with non-judgemental guidance – what is going on in your life and how to review, revisit and perhaps change the things which are troubling you or holding you back.

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.

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.

Sometimes in life we experience difficult changes and may struggle with anxiety and or depression. This can often be overwhelming and very difficult to overcome. Counselling can help us to explore these difficulties and gain deeper understanding. Therapy requires investment from me, as the therapist, and you the client, to foster an environment where healing can take place. Sometimes this takes time, and may not be easy, however, I will be with you all the way.

Understanding ourselves, the decisions and choices we make and our relationships with others can be baffling. At times, you may find yourself acting or behaving in ways that you struggle to align with your personal principles, wishes or desires. Alternatively, your experience may suggest that your way of being doesn't blend with the world around you and often you find yourself meeting resistance from people or institutions. This discord can usually be examined via a relational process. During our work together, we can examine your interactions with others and the meaning you attach to them, developing insight via self-awareness.
