About me

Hello and welcome.

If you are new to the world of counselling, I appreciate that it can be daunting! Trying to find the right counsellor, in particular, can be challenging.

I personally have undertaken extensive training to become a Psychodynamic Counsellor, which means my focus is on helping you get to the roots of your struggles, rather than trying to patch things up and I am able to draw on a large scale of modalities to do so.

Counselling with me will involve authentic communication in which my hope is that you will feel you are being listened to and understood.  In time, as you become secure in our therapeutic relationship, you will hopefully become more comfortable and find it easier to go deeper.

Together, we will explore some of your past and present hurts and traumas and hopefully process them in a way that will bring healing in a lasting way. 
If this sounds like what you are looking for, I offer a free initial 30 mins phone or video call which you can book online. 

More in-depth

I have been trained as a REMA therapist, and as such believe that we are;

- As human beings we are deeply relational; being attuned with ourselves, others and the environment is key to healthy living.

- Our mind, emotions, spirituality and sexuality are all contained within a human body and when one or more of these aspects are in turmoil, it can affect us in a very real and physical way. It is important to pay attention to what our body might be telling us.

- As humans, we strive for meaning and when life feels meaningless, we are bound to hopelessness. It is important that we process life events and allow meaning to be found.

- Self-awareness lies at the very heart of what it means to be agentic. Unless we know why we do what we do, we can not have any control over what we do. If we have no control, we can not choose; if we can not choose, we are mere spectators. Ever get angry or frustrated and then wonder why? Proper reflection and processing of our actions will allow for growth in self-awareness, in turn resulting in becoming truly agentic.

Often when we get stuck in life and find ourselves needing help, it will be due to something not being right in one or more of these aspects of ourselves- often due to trauma, whether it be recent or in childhood. As your counsellor it would be my aim to journey with you and through authentic communication and the use of therapeutic techniques, bring healing to these aspects- leaving you feeling more balanced and whole as a person!
