About me and my therapy practice
Sometimes things can feel too much. The stresses of work, relationships or socialising can feel too overwhelming. Or you may have had to deal with a loss, of your job, a partner, your identity or relationship or having children. Anxiety or depression may be limiting or crippling you. We can all just ‘get on with things and carry on’ but does it always have to be so difficult. It can be hard to know who to turn to or you may feel unable to reach out to friends or family.
Taking the first steps into counselling can be daunting, I know how hard that can be. I strive to provide a safe and nurturing environment to help you explore your innermost thoughts and feelings. With empathy, acceptance, and compassion I will help you to gradually grow in confidence to bring the difficult issues and concerns that are troubling you. I offer my expertise, so you feel safe to explore painful emotions, tap into your inner resources, to realise your own potential and lead a more fulfilling life.
It can be daunting to start therapy, and finding the right therapist is key. You have to feel you can open up and talk freely.
I work integratively which means I tailor the way I work to your needs. You are in the driving seat; I just make some suggestions on the route we take. We will work together to explore what’s bothering you, how this impacts your life now and how your past has shaped you and your relationships.
I have worked in the NHS with clients with anxiety, depression, stress, suicide, self-harm, sexual abuse and eating disorders. I am also passionate about working with women and have worked in a domestic abuse centre supporting women through domestic abusive, controlling, and coercive relationships. Being a trauma informed therapist, I can sit with the uncomfortable, giving you the space to bring up difficult experiences and work through how they affect your body, your self-esteem and your inner and outer freedom.
I offer both short and long term therapy, online and in person
