I am an accredited counsellor with over 12 years’ experience working with people experiencing depression, feelings of anxiety and unhappiness, people struggling with painful losses, addictions, eating disorders and other forms of self-harm including suicidal feelings. I also have specialist training in and have worked with individuals who have experienced trauma, including childhood sexual abuse, rape and domestic violence.
I offer short and long-term counselling to individuals and couples. I work in a collaborative way and I offer a safe, confidential setting where we work at your pace and follow your needs. My initial training was in psychodynamic counselling and with further training and experience, I have added other skills to my work providing a more integrative approach. I am also a qualified Relate couples counsellor and clinical supervisor.
Many of us reach a point in our lives where we find we need some extra support in dealing with life’s struggles and it can be difficult knowing which support out there is the right one for you. Together we will work out how talking therapy can help you to explore your relationships, what difficulties you are facing and find new ways of seeing yourself and the world, and perhaps new ways of living your life.
As a therapist, I aim to help you make sense of your thoughts, feelings and experiences and to support you in addressing particular problems and in making changes. Whatever the issue, creating the time and space in which to explore things with compassion and without judgement. The improved insight and self-knowledge gained from therapy can not only help to ease the distress of the initial problem but can be helpfully applied to other matters and areas of life.
Relationships can be very confusing and often it’s hard to disentangle our feelings. I offer couples’ counselling as well as counselling for individuals who want to explore past relationships or want help with looking more closely at difficulties with new ones.
Couples counselling can deal with many aspects of our relationships; there can be a feeling of living increasingly separate lives, struggling with parenting pressures, illness, loss of interest in sex, coping with the impact of affairs and loss of trust and sometimes just not talking to each other anymore. On both sides, there may be unfulfilled expectations that our partner should know what is needed but fails to deliver it.
Having a trained person to talk these through with can make the difference between withdrawal, loneliness and disappointment to increased communication and reconnection.
