About me and my therapy practice

When we experience traumatic or upsetting times in our lives this can upset the equilibrium. As a result of this, we experience somatic symptoms in our body resulting from unprocessed emotional issues.

We may look for ways to cope to stop ourselves feeling pain, this might be by developing an addiction or dependency. We could act or behave differently, become withdrawn and isolated, shutting people out.

We may feel we have no-one to turn to, or that we can’t reach out to the people closest to us through fear of not being understood or that we might be judged but asking for help is brave.

Counselling can offer that confidential space and help you to explore and make sense of the issue that's bothering you.

Practice description

Areas I am particularly experienced to help with (but not limited to):

Infertility, female reproductive health and chronic disease (such as endometriosis), trauma, domestic violence, abusive relationships, addiction / dependency, childhood sexual abuse, loss, mental health issues such as anxiety and depression, identity issues, sexuality and spirituality / existential issues.

I also work with non abusing parents of sexually abused children.

I am an approved therapist with Anxiety UK.

My first session

I offer face to face initial assessment sessions at £35. 

There is no commitment at this stage.

This initial 50 minute session will give us the opportunity to talk about the reasons that are bringing you to counselling and what you may want to achieve.

It will then give you a chance to experience what therapy will be like with me. By the end of this session we would have an understanding about what it would be like working together.

If you choose counselling is for you we can then decide upon the weekly time of our sessions.

What I can help with

Abuse, ADD / ADHD, Addictions, AIDS/HIV, Anger management, Anxiety, Bereavement, Cancer, Chronic fatigue syndrome / ME, Cultural issues, Depression, Disability, Eating disorders, Health related issues, Identity issues, Infertility, Loss, Men's issues, Post-traumatic stress, Pregnancy related issues, Redundancy, Relationships, Self esteem, Sexual identity, Sexuality, Spirituality, Stress, Trauma, Women's issues, Work related issues
