About me and my therapy practice

I help people to improve the relationship with themselves and to those around them.

So, has your 'emotional suitcase' become too heavy to lift?

If it does, life may feel something like this:

Overwhelming.  Your relationships are strained or are breaking down.  You feel like you have lost your way.  It has become difficult to voice what you need.  You feel depressed, anxious or your self-esteem feels low. 

Sometimes communication within our relationships breaks down, which creates conflict, distance and pain. Our worries may seem jumbled up or like they are growing bigger and unmanageable by the day. It can, therefore, become very difficult to make sense of ourselves, others, our emotions and even our lives.

So, you may need some help to:

Unpack that case.  Sort through the contents.  Find clarity

From birth human beings have a drive to belong for development and survival. Therefore, throughout life relationships are really important.  Our relationships can bring us happiness and fulfilment, but when things go wrong it can feel like everything is falling apart.

We can have relationships with everything and everyone, including ourselves. Our life events, stress and even the way we think about ourselves can affect our relationships. Sometimes when these become difficult, break down or we lose someone, we may feel confused, lost, angry, or sad.  We can turn our pain inwards to ourselves or outwards to others.

Sometimes it may be very difficult to talk about this with family or friends for fear of being judged or a burden, or maybe we just don’t want to.

So, if any of this resonates with you, then you are in the right place.


Practice description

My core training is to Foundation Degree Level and is considered integrative, which means I have studied a variety of counselling theories, psychology and science based modules.   

I have worked in bereavement, with people who feel lost, with relationship difficulties, anxiety, depression, or just want to understand why they think, feel and behave the way that they do.

Continued professional development (CPD) is something that I am passionate about and I take up various training courses throughout the year, which builds on my existing knowledge. Other courses include couples therapy, various bereavement training, Transactional Analysis, Post Graduate Course in Compassionate Inquiry (Gabor Mate) and various trauma training. 

My first session

Our first session will be slightly longer than subsequent sessions to allow for information that I will need to take from you and for you to ask any questions about me or the way I practice.  After this there will be plenty of time for us to begin talking about what has brought you to counselling.  

It is normal to feel anxious about beginning counselling, however, clients report that they quickly feel at ease with me and the way that I work, valuing the open dialogue, the compassion and knowledge.
