About me and my therapy practice

These are unprecedented and challenging times. As we navigate living through a pandemic it is likely we will all feel stressed, isolated and overwhelmed at some point. I can offer a confidential space to talk through these feelings as well as exploring aspects of your life unrelated to the pandemic.    

I have a relaxed approach, we may touch on some difficult and painful topics at times but there will also be room for humour in our sessions. I offer individual and relationship counselling online via Zoom, on the telephone and by instant message. Do email me if you would like to ask me any questions or book a session.

I am an Integrative Counsellor. I work in a person-centred way as well as using other approaches to inform the way I work, including psychodynamic theory, cognitive behavioural therapy and Transactional Analysis. I let you lead sessions, working alongside you to help you work through the difficulties you are experiencing.

Relationship Counselling

I work with couples who are struggling with communication and experiencing conflict in their relationship. Sometimes people are trying to deal with a major life event such as the loss of a job or the death of a loved one. Couples may also be trying to decide what direction their lives and relationship should take. I can provide a safe space to explore these things and be alongside a couple as they learn how to deal better with conflict and develop their ability to listen and empathise with each other.

I am also a LGBTQ affirmative counsellor. I am aware that we live in a heteronormative and cisnormative society and how this can impact on self worth and cause feelings of shame, doubt, loneliness, anxiety and depression. Counselling can help provide a safe space to explore these and other difficulties without feeling judged or misunderstood.
