I integrate a variety of therapies to work collaboratively to address each client’s specific issues. This may range from dealing with anxiety to grief, depression to trauma, emotional or relationship issues, or long-term health conditions. The therapies can help people develop enhanced coping skills to deal with the negative experiences that life throws at us. It gives people the opportunity to work through trauma, recognise strengths and gain skills to manage extreme emotions, improve relationships, and enjoy a life that is in line with their values.

Sometimes we all need the space to take time out to reflect on what's going on with us; or to talk to someone outside our immediate family and friends, a trained and experienced professional, who can assist us to think and feel deeper into our life, work and relationships. As we do this we begin to feel more human, more in balance and more able to warm up to our own spontaneity, vitality and creativity in response to what is required- be it coming to some resolutions, developing or strengthening aspects of ourselves, moving forward, or 'leaning into' our lives in a more dynamic or committed way. Therapy assists.

I offer both short-term counselling focusing on specific issues as well as longer-term psychotherapy. If you are frustrated with repeating old patterns of behaving and feeling and are searching for increased wellbeing, self-acceptance and resilience, psychotherapy can make a big difference to your life. Sharing your difficulties with a caring and effective listener can help you live more adventurously and feel more at ease in your own skin. I prefer to work collaboratively towards useful and achievable goals that you choose.

My clients are often driven entrepreneurs who appear to 'have it all together' externally yet internally they are struggling with negative emotions, conflicted thoughts and/or relationship difficulties. This is impacting the quality of their decision making and effectiveness as a leader while also contributing towards a general dissatisfaction in life. Although I love working with businesspeople, I welcome all enquiries from anyone who has a genuine desire to improve the quality of their life.

I support you if you feel lost at sea without a clear idea of how to get through your current challenges. Our life experience includes resources and stressors. We can function with a fair degree of stress, however it doesn't take much to upset this balance leaving us feeling unprepared for what we are experiencing. I can help you explore your experience in a way that is safe for you to do so. I trust in your own inner knowing that given the space and time and a little guiding will support a growth in awareness. This leads to more choices being available for you to come into a relationship with life that works for you.

Successful counselling is based on the quality of the relationship between myself (the therapist) and you (the client). My approach is based on deep respect and non-judgemental acceptance for all people I work with. Utilising an element of creativity within therapy enables you to speak through art making, and reflection, because sometimes spoken words don’t exist for your experience. In my practice I offer counselling and arts therapy, professional supervision and coaching, and career development.

Life can throw us all sorts of challenging experiences, and at times we can get stuck - in mood, behaviours, relationships and in unhelpful patterns or ways of coping. It can be hard to know how to navigate through these difficulties. Psychological therapy is about making sense and meaning from events and discovering new ways of relating to ourselves and to others. I provide therapy according to your goals and needs with the intention of helping you being closer to the person you want to be and be doing the things that are important to you.

If you’re at a point in life where you’re wrestling with issues or experiencing the impact of past challenges, you might be unsure of what to do about it or you may be losing hope in facing the struggle. Counselling provides the opportunity to see new perspectives and discovering new ways of moving towards where you want to go. Through the words uttered and exchanged in our conversations, counselling gives the chance to create, redefine, and author the stories you want in your life. Whatever it is you're going through, I look forward to meeting you as you are and figuring out together who or where you might want to be.
