About me and my therapy practice

How are things for you? 

• Do you find yourself feeling lost, different, and excluded?

• Do you struggle with your identity and where you fit into society?

• Do you find it difficult to maintain relationships and social circles?

• Do you struggle to focus and find yourself overwhelmed?

• Do you have impulsive thoughts feelings and behaviours?

• Do you have experiences from the past that are buried and feel unresolved?

• Do you feel lonely, misunderstood and somehow unbalanced?

• Do you feel like you are living your life for others and not yourself?

• Do you find yourself in cycles, repeating the same behaviours?

• Do you struggle maintaining the here and now and general pressures of life?

• Do you feel you are going through a period of change that is hard to deal with?

• Have suffered grief or loss that is affecting you in negative ways

Experiencing one of any of these can feel overwhelming and lead to struggles that are difficult to manage in and amongst our daily lives. I would like to offer you an opportunity to explore what is happening for you in a safe and secure environment that will support you to:

• Be Listened too and understood

• Have someone acknowledge what it is like for you in your world

• Not feel judged or pressured

• Explore your experiences as they are happening and stay with them

• Accept and be compassionate towards yourself

• Have a feeling of being grounded and in control.

• Help you to understand and accept some of the experiences and lessen the impact it may have on your life 

I trained as a therapist to support people live happy and healthy lives and not to feel shackled by experiences and situations that can prevent them from enjoying the here and now and looking forwards to a happy future.

We live for an average of 3 billion seconds, I would like to support everyone I work with use the time in the best possible way free from worry, negative thoughts and experiences that may be impacting them living the life they want to live.
