About me and my therapy practice

I am a relationship counsellor working soulfully with individuals (single or otherwise) who are having difficulties in their relationships. Perhaps you are going through a break-up (either as the one who is ending the relationship, or as the one who is being left). Maybe you are heartbroken, or haven't come to terms with the ending of an old relationship. Maybe you have issues around trusting others, have experienced betrayal or find yourself betraying. You may be anxious in relationships and back away while yearning for closeness. Maybe you lose yourself in relationships with others, forgetting you own needs and wants or not really knowing what they are in the first place. Perhaps you are lonely. 

I offer counselling both short and longer term for individuals who want to find a way to richer and deeper connections with others. We work together to really get to know who you are and what makes you tick.

Knowing yourself well will enable you to see old damaging patterns, that have kept you stuck and feeling hopeless. Understanding yourself well can open up possibilities of choice, of  finally doing things differently, of feeling free enough to to make decisions based on your own feelings and experience. Bringing more of your authentic self to relationships opens you up to ones that are deeper and more fulfilling.

I bring warmth and empathy, humour and challenge. Working with me is a deepening journey into soul; a discovery of your own knowing and wisdom. We go at your pace, working towards a fuller understanding of how you are in in the world, and in your relationships through a renewed connection to self.

Practice description

Currently, all available appointments are online (video). I offer a therapeutic space where you will be able to talk in confidence, and have the time to just be with your feelings and thoughts. I come with warmth, empathy and professionalism, offering insight, reflection and a compassionate curiosity to where you find yourself.

We might start to look at your past and how it might be impacting you now (this is a psychodynamic approach). And we might begin to notice what is happening in your body at different times, so that if you are are anxious we can look at ways of bringing your anxiety to more tolerable levels.

Sometimes I may invite you to draw, journal or bring objects (everyday items) to the session. You might bring your dreams for us to explore and make meaning from. We might look at photos from your life. We can do all this online.

Perhaps you will need a few sessions to get something off your chest. Perhaps you want to look at how you are in relationships and will need more sessions to fathom that out and see lasting change. However long you want to come, we will be working together, collaboratively, with your best interests in heart and mind.

About me and my therapy practice

I am a relationship counsellor for individuals who are single or in a relationship. Perhaps you are experiencing heartbreak at the end of a relationship (whether you were the one who ended it or the one who didn't want it to end). Maybe you struggle in your relationships, they never quite work out and you are unsure as to why. Perhaps you lose yourself in your relationships, due to low self esteem or a lack of confidence; and maybe you don't really know how it happens. Maybe you have experienced anxiety, loneliness, infidelity and betrayal. Maybe you are the person who finds fidelity difficult. For these relationship issues and more, counselling offers you a space to really fathom how you are in relationship as well as being a supportive place to heal old and current wounds and hurts.

 I offer counselling that begins with your relationship to you. Knowing yourself well will enable you to see old damaging patterns, that may have created unhelpful dynamics with others. Understanding ourselves well can open up possibilities of choice, of doing things differently, of feeling free enough to to make decisions based on your own feelings and experience.

I bring warmth and empathy, humour and challenge. Working with me is a deepening journey into soul; a discovery of your own knowing and wisdom. We go at your pace, working towards a fuller understanding of how you are in in the world, and in your relationships through a renewed connection to self.
