My practice qualifications include mental healthcare so being ‘stuck’ in past events with grief, anxiety or depression doesn’t have to be an ongoing reality.

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.

As a trained psychotherapist, I can help you experience positive change with issues such as depression, anxiety , grief, self-esteem, relationship issues or addiction. Psychotherapy is a “talking therapy” where we explore your concerns, thoughts and feelings in a way that can lead to improvements to your mental health and wellbeing. When something is painful we often try to ignore it. Sometimes we bury something so well that we lose sight of it completely. This is why difficult experiences from the past can still affect the way we feel and behave today.

Psychotherapy is a counselling service that helps to understand who we are deep down, how our life experiences have affected and shaped us and how this sometimes leads to self-defeating behaviours, a lot of which happens unconsciously.

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.

Anxiety Counsellors

What are the most common treatments for anxiety?

Talk therapy, particularly cognitive behavioural therapy, is the most common treatment for anxiety. Studies have shown it is equally effective as medication. Other popular forms of therapy are popular, depending on a patient’s experience. Exposure therapy, for instance, can be useful for people dealing with fears and phobias, or who have experienced traumatic events. Dialectical Behavioural Therapy may be useful for patients who need help with emotion regulation. Anxiolytic medications, like benzodiazepines, can also help with calming a person enough to focus on the skills they’ve learned, and physical exercise has been shown to help symptoms of anxiety across the board.

How long does therapy for anxiety take to work?

The amount of time needed to alleviate symptoms depends on the severity of a person’s condition. Some therapies may take 5-20 weekly sessions to show results. Anti-depressant medications typically take two to four weeks before a benefit is felt. Anti-anxiety medications are felt typically within 20-30 minutes. Medications are best used to offer a patient a better headspace in which to work on techniques learned in therapy. Exercise, improved sleep habits, and meditation are effective, but takes weeks or months to show results.

When should I seek treatment for anxiety?

Everyone feels anxious at times, but when anxiety causes disruption to your daily life, it may be time to seek help. Such disruption can be mental, physical, or both: having fear dominate your thoughts, avoiding situations or objects that bring on feelings of anxiety, or experiencing shortness of breath, sweating, dizziness, or panic attacks. When these symptoms are recurrent and distressing, it may be time to talk to someone.

How effective is treatment for anxiety?

Treatment for anxiety has been shown to be moderately to highly effective, according to a large body of psychology studies and analyses. For some people, treatment using CBT or exposure therapy alone is effective. Others respond best to a combination of medication and therapy.
