About me

Each of us encounters conflicts and dilemmas in life that cause emotional and psychological issues. How we are in the world can have a huge impact on what we are able to manage and how we do that. Our troubles are often made more difficult by symptoms (such as depression and anxiety) which can get in the way of our ability to resolve the issues.

I will help you to bring a deeper awareness to what is troubling you and I will support you to look inwards to find your own answers to the issues you are facing. I will help you to reflect on what is happening and the ways in which you manage your difficulties and your relationships with others. This can open up space and freedom around the emotional disturbance you are experiencing as well as helping you to live a more fulfilling life.

  • You might be experiencing depression, anxiety, relationship issues, compulsive behaviour or physical symptoms in your body such as illness.
  • You might be cut off from your feelings and/or overwhelmed by them.
  • You might be in a personal crisis or feeling stuck, empty or without meaning in your life.
  • You might feel like deep down there is something wrong with you.
  • Or you might have trauma or other issues from your childhood.

I am experienced at working with all of these issues as well as many others, I will listen to you with empathy and compassion and I will work with you with clarity and creativity. Everything can be included in the work we do together and nothing is taboo.

My approach is holistic in that it includes every aspect of your being (body, feelings, mind, sexuality, spirit). We all have the potential to open to the wholeness at the core of our being and to live life fully. That potential is what I am passionate about and in particular, what gets in the way of it for you, in your unique life.

I am a member of BACP and I work to their professional, ethical guidelines and I am in regular supervision.

Sessions are weekly and last for 60 minutes. I offer both short term and long term counselling.

Seeking help can often feel extremely difficult and in particular, making the initial contact with me might take a lot of courage, I know that it can be hard to make that first move. Please do feel free to get in touch with me for an informal chat so we can get a sense of how we might work together. There's no obligation to continue.
