About me

Hello, how are you really feeling? Anxious? Stressed? Not heard or understood? Not your usual self? Or just wanting to explore and to continue developing?

Do you question your future relationship with yourself or others? Perhaps you find it hard to say no and always prioritise others needs and wants, ignoring your own. Maybe assumptions and perceived ideas has become the default way of communicating, or have you checked out and decided saying nothing is best vs displaying negative language and/or behaviour? So many questions, issues and challenges, that we all think and feel at times with a different level of intensity, that needs a safe space where you can reflect and explore your feelings, thoughts and behaviour.

Therapy should be as unique as you are, hence why I draw from a few therapeutic techniques to tailor my approach to your needs.

Specialities include working with individuals and couples who are navigating struggles which include; anxiety, coping skills, depression, communication breakdown, affair, betrayal, pre-marital concerns, bereavement, abuse, life goals, life transition, parenting, separation, women and men issues.

In Individual counselling, I support adults to explore their struggles impacting their wellbeing and relations with themselves and others.

In Couples therapy, I support partners, marital and premarital, to listen through dialogue, concerns affecting their joint commitment and future together.

I am passionate about my work and committed to supporting my clients, to gain a better understanding of their thoughts, feelings and behaviours, which will open up new possibilities of empowerment, towards wanting to heal, change, or develop, a better future self and/or relationship.
