Deciding to come for counselling can often be a difficult and drawn-out process. It is often also a very rewarding and enriching experience leading to changes in one’s life that reduce distress and increase one’s ability to cope with difficulties and challenges. By it's nature the process involves engaging with uncomfortable aspects of oneself and our relationships that are challenging. The goal of the process is to increase self-knowledge, self-acceptance and self-compassion that enhances our capacity to relate to ourselves and others in healthier ways.

I am helping people to become aware of the underlying sources of their difficulties, intellectually and emotionally. This enables my clients to develop coping skills that allow them to deal with the realities of their life situation. I provide a confidential and safe space which creates the opportunity for people speak without the fear of being judged in order to help them to understand the experiences that have shaped their lives and are affecting their ability to deal with current difficulties. The purpose of this insight is to help them to bring about major change on their whole life perspective.

Are you finding it difficult to cope or having problems in your relationships? Perhaps you feel overwhelmed by your emotions or you find yourself overthinking? Psychotherapy can help you connect with yourself, make sense of your experiences and find solutions. I believe that life is complex and no two people experience it the same way. Therefore therapy is not a 'one size fits all'. I draw on years of experience as a therapist and I integrate approaches so that the therapeutic space is centred on you and your needs.

Well done! If your looking here, consider you have made a brave move towards reaching out for guidance and support. Whatever it is that's troubling you or leaving you stuck in life, always remember there is a solution for everything. Only you have the answers to be explored with my help. Life presents us with many challenges, more for some than others, the trick is to move through these and come out the other side. We learn from the lessons received through hardship and how we cope through them makes us stronger people. Fear, loss, depression, anxiety keep us stuck, life's too short not to do something about it and move on...

You promised you would not watch online porn or live sex cams again. You feel guilt and shame because you want to stop but cant. You visited a sex worker during lockdown and now you are worried you might have put the health of your family at risk. You plan to spend a short time on dating apps and find yourself spending hours on them, unable to put them down, feeling desperate and hopeless. You have an instant attraction when you meet a particular type of person, believing they are the one. You are in recovery for alcohol / drug addiction, but your compulsive sexual acting out behaviours have increased and you feel guilt and shame.
