About me and my therapy practice

Have you ever felt overwhelmed trying to manage difficult or distressing emotions which act as a block in leading a healthy and personally fulfilled life? Do you have unhealthy coping mechanisms? Do you feel like you are stuck in a continuous loop, of negative emotions with no way out? Are you feeling worthless or unappreciated? If you answered yes to any of these questions, I can help you gain clarity and understanding in meanings behind negative emotions and explore a new journey to personal freedom, growth and resilience.

I am a fully qualified counsellor with a specialism in working with clients who have experienced trauma, abuse or negative life-events. I help clients understand and process difficult emotions and help with coping strategies with triggers and flashbacks. This safe exploration leads to a stronger sense of self and a new found confidence.

Practice description

I offer short or long-term therapeutic counselling to clients of all ages generally split into three core age ranges:

Therapy for Adults – This ranges from people in early adulthood to later on in life. Therapy is a private and confidential space to talk about problems and difficulties that may be troubling you. You may feel stuck in your situation or in a loop where past experiences or emotions play over and over again. Therapy helps you become ‘un-stuck’ and I can listen empathically and without judgement, with the invitation to explore deeper with therapy techniques which will encourage growth and emotional release.

Therapy for Young People – This is focused on older children and teenagers. A range of therapy tools can be used to help clients communicate and overcome difficulties in any area of their life. I provide a space for young people to explore difficult situations or experiences, which is led by the client in a safe and non-judgemental manner. This might be simply by talking, or by using more creative methods for example art, drama or creative writing. 

Therapy for Children – Suitable for children from 5 years, play therapy is a therapeutic technique used to help children to communicate thoughts and emotions. These sessions are led by the child in a supportive and safe environment, with more directive methods used when appropriate.  *For primary school aged children, therapy can take place at your child's school.
