About me and my therapy practice

Are you feeling sad, anxious or empty? It can be difficult to cope with what life throws at us. As a person-centred counsellor and psychotherapist, I help people with a variety of issues: anxiety, depression, low self-esteem/ confidence, relationship issues, women's issues, bereavement, abuse, alcohol/ substance issues.

I offer an integrative approach to counselling with the use of EFT, Rewind therapy and Cognitive Behavioural therapy. 

I have a warm, compassionate and understanding nature, recognising that everyone is unique. I will tailor our therapy sessions to accommodate your needs.

I am particularly passionate about supporting people who have suffered from trauma. Each person reacts differently to traumatic situations due to our individual nature, and the types of trauma can range from being the victim of a crime, the tragic loss of a loved one/ child, to PTSD and sexual/ physical abuse to name just a few. I have done a lot of research into the effects trauma has on the mind and body, and how it affects our ability to function day to day. Very often trauma can become trapped in the body without us even realising it. We may wonder why we react in a certain way, become angry/ irritable for no apparent reason or struggle to deal with various situations. Through our work together we can safely unpack this together.

While talking therapy can help; for those who have been impacted by trauma, talking does not always get to the root of the issue. I therefore offer a practical problem focused approach through the use of Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Rewind therapy.

Practice description

I work in both private practice and for a registered charity which supports people who are feeling anxious and depressed.

When we experience difficult life events, such as grieving the loss of a loved one, losing a job, losing our health, feeling trapped in an abusive relationship, this can affect our ability to sleep and function in the way we need to. I offer clients the opportunity to really feel heard. So often we can feel forgotten and ignored, and rather than speaking out, we try and please others by agreeing with them and not saying how we really feel. Through my work as a therapist, I help clients to find freedom from anxiety and depression and to feel more empowered in their relationships with others.

I have also worked with young people who have difficult home lives which can affect other areas of their life. Trying to navigate through the difficulties that young people face can be difficult, however I can offer a practical and problem-focused approach to help you through whatever Is dragging you down.
