About me and my therapy practice

Sometimes we find ourselves stuck in life - striving to move forward, but unable to move past the memories and emotions that are holding us back. At times like this, we can become overwhelmed and begin to feel hopeless. Perhaps you feel like you are failing when you compare yourself to others. Maybe you’ve had enough of feeling stuck and want to find a way out? If this sounds familiar, I would like to work with you. Whether you are seeking individual or relationship counselling, you will have the opportunity to gain perspective on your circumstances and consider how you would like to move forward in life.

When working with individuals, I listen carefully to your experiences and ask questions that will help you identify themes and patterns in your life. I also pay careful attention to the relationship between you and I as this can offer us insight into your relationships outside of our sessions, both in the past and the present day.

When working with couples and groups, I pay attention to the relationship while noticing any relational, intimacy and communication difficulties that may arise. Relationship counselling includes any romantic consensual combination of individuals whether married, in a long-term partnership, open relationship, throuple or anything else. Relationship counselling is also for those looking to amicably separate or divorce, also know as conscious uncoupling. All relationship types are welcomed and affirmed.

Practice description

By offering a collaborative and unique approach to each of my clients, I work with your expectations and desired outcomes in therapy. Each session, I provide a contained space where your pain and struggles can be heard and felt, while noticing and highlighting themes that emerge as the therapeutic work progresses.

My approach to therapy is less problem-focused and more exploratory; allowing space for uncovered themes and unconscious experiences to be worked through. For this reason, it is preferable to work longer-term (six months or more) with a commitment to meet at least once per week. A shorter or time-limited arrangement is available for relationship therapy, however it is still preferable to work together for at least twelve sessions.

I have experience working with a wide range of issues, which specifically include (but are not limited to) anxiety, depression, loneliness, bereavement, relationship difficulties, emotional abuse, sexual problems and sexual abuse. I am also an Advanced Trainee in Psychosexual Therapy, which enhances and deepens my awareness of sexual and relational difficulties, including Gender, Sexual and Relationship Diversity (GSRD) issues.

I understand that finding the right counsellor is very important and the process of therapy requires courage and commitment. Therefore, I offer a free 15-minute phone call where you can give me a brief overview of your situation and ask any questions you may have. From there, we can book an initial session to discuss your needs further.
