About me and my therapy practice

Sometimes it can be hard to deal with some of the challenges that happen in life and we can lose a sense of who we are. Perhaps you are living with a recent or past loss, trauma or relationship difficulties. I help people work through difficult experiences such as:

 bereavement and other life losses;  difficulty adjusting to life; changes; depression and anxiety; feeling overwhelmed by stress; negative thoughts and emotions; domestic abuse; self-harm and feelings of suicide; menopausal symptoms such as anxiety; relational trauma and relationship issues; low self-esteem; emotional trauma; the experiences of being a Carer

We all experience loss in our lives and loss is not only experienced when someone has died. We can be impacted by redundancy or retirement, divorce or loss of a partnership, loss of health, loss of a sense of who we are or a direction in life, loss of identity, a sense of loss when children leave home and many more. Sharing these losses within a trusting therapeutic relationship can help you to adjust and integrate these experiences, in a way that isn't always possible with family and friends.

I can help you to be curious and reflective, which may bring some understanding to your circumstances, allowing you to make sense of your situation and gain a wider perspective. A period of difficulty (although painful), can be an opportunity to give yourself the time and space to discover more about you. Counselling can develop and support awareness and acceptance of yourself, which can bring transformation and choice in how you interact in your relationships with others.
