It can be really difficult to share your deepest concerns, fears and issues. It takes a lot of courage to make yourself vulnerable in this way; trusting another person with your ‘stuff’ can feel deeply uncomfortable and risky. With this in mind, I do my best to build a relationship with you (and your partner or partners) – in which you feel safe, accepted and respected. No matter why you have come to therapy, or what you may share during each session, my role is to try to help you – not judge you.

I’ve been a Counsellor and Family Therapist for over 20 years now. What I love about this work is helping people unpack their challenges and figure out how they can be more compassionate with themselves, more peaceful in their relationships and enjoy life more fully. Most people walk in somewhat nervously not knowing what to expect but the feedback is that it’s a relief to be able to talk freely, see themselves more kindly and pick up some new skills that work for them.

Therapy is a space in which we think about you, and in doing so, co-create a hopeful space, to cultivate change to support your emotional and mental wellbeing. I work with people from all walks of life that are experiencing emotional difficulties (e.g., depression / anxiety/ anger management issues), or difficult life circumstances (e.g., divorce/ immigration / grief). I have a special interest in sexual trauma, trauma recovery and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). I also have experience in supporting neuro-diverse children, young adults, and their families in various educational environments.

I offer a warm, accepting, and confidential space where you feel listened to. I have experience supporting people with a wide range of issues including; feeling disconnected, social and relationship challenges, navigating life changes, loss, identity struggles, and low self-worth; and people who identify as highly sensitive or neurodiverse. Psychotherapy allows us to explore why we feel and behave the way we do & can help us learn to manage our emotions. Developing a deeper understanding of ourselves and our patterns can give us new perspectives, help us make meaningful changes, and may help us accept things we can’t change.

If you are considering psychological therapy, we are here to give you a brief overview of how the process works, what to anticipate, and how to make the most of your sessions. Please contact me directly to see if I am the right person to help you. CBT and ACT are modern, well-structured, and time-limited therapy approaches. The first session typically follows a structured process, where I ask a series of questions to gain a comprehensive understanding of the key psychological processes that may be contributing to your distress. At the end of this session, I often provide a verbal summary to ensure that it resonates with you.

I believe everyone has a purpose. I believe the answers to finding that purpose is a journey. The experiences you encounter while on that journey will lead you toward various pathways challenging the choices you make at the intersections in your life. The value of your experiences is the learning you gain, and the courage you develop to recognize that it doesn't matter what anyone else thinks. What matters...is you. Its your journey.

My therapeutic approach is rooted in integration, which honours brain, mind, and body connection as ways of accessing the source of the problem. I am classically trained in talk therapy from a psychodynamic perspective which I integrate with neurotherapy known as eye movement integration (EMI) and BWRT (Brain Working Recursive Therapy) whilst holding somatic space for embodiment.

Life can bring challenges that require a space to talk things over. This is where Counselling can be beneficial; by supporting you to make sense of the things you are struggling with, find ways to cope, and discover strategies to help. I aim to provide a safe place for you to explore these various aspects of yourself, including both strengths and difficulties. Life Coaching can also be helpful in showing you a way forward, clarifying your goals and values and helping you to explore your talents and strengths. It can show us where we might be stuck and make us aware of old patterns of bahaviour that might be holding us back.
