Do you sometimes feel alone, with no one to lean on for support? Do you feel overwhelmed by difficult or challenging life events and want help to feel like yourself again? Within a counselling session, I can support you as you explore and understand your situation, identify helpful techniques or coping strategies, and set and work towards personal goals. I work with adults and young people aged 11+, and provide support for a wide range of physical and emotional difficulties. I have specialist experience in supporting people living with chronic/long-term health conditions, and those who are bereaved or preparing for a bereavement.

Do you need a safe confidential place to speak openly, with someone neutral and non-judgemental? You may be looking to make some changes, or have a dilemma to talk through. Maybe you've lost a loved one or pet, feel isolated or stressed, or have a problem that's preventing you from moving forward. I work to understand things from your viewpoint, and to build a trusting therapeutic relationship where you feel comfortable enough to be yourself. I listen, understand, accept, and believe, and appreciate that talking about feelings is difficult. Being interactive means that you'll get much more than 'hmms' and 'uh-huhs' from me.

I have trained as an integrative counsellor, and believe that therapy can help us evolve from surviving to thriving. I became a counsellor for many reasons, but fundamentally because of the powerful way in which counselling can help you take back control of your life story; tomorrow does not have to be like yesterday. I can offer you a calm space to explore what feels safe to you until you are ready and I will not make assumptions about the individual struggles you are going through. I work with the full belief that it is possible to find a way through your experiences and re-gain that sense of who you are.

I am an integrative therapist specialising in using eye-movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) therapy to treat a wide range of psychological issues. I am highly trained in psychotherapy, neuroscience and trauma and believe that our current issues can often be traced back to early adverse experiences in childhood. Compared to standard talking therapy EMDR generally takes a shorter amount of time to get to the root cause of the issue. Rather than just dealing with symptom management (like CBT), EMDR therapy works directly with the cause of your distress.

Psychologist, HCPC - Clin. Psych.

Navigating the adolescent years can be more challenging for young people with a chronic illness because of the changes taking place in the brain and body.
I'm Holly, a clinical psychologist who works with 12 to 24 year olds with physical health challenges. Our physical health and mental health are closely linked, so living with a visible or invisible illness can also impact on our thoughts, feelings and behaviour. Thoughts like 'it's not fair', 'why me?', 'I wish it would go away', are normal, but can cause extra suffering on top of physical health challenges that are not going away. A fear of the dentist or needles can stop you getting the treatment or vaccinations you need. I can help you find ways to manage these challenges and get on with living your best life.
