Right now life is supposedly going back to 'normal', however life still feels unmanageable and those never ending obstacles has now become more intense.
You may be feeling overwhelmed with all the pressures at work, whilst trying to juggle the constant demands of being a parent and looking after the family. Let's not forget about the strain this may be putting on your relationship with your other half, and no one truly understands that things are day by day spiralling out of control for you.
You want to get back to that place where work-life balance is not just a fantasy. Being a parent feels enjoyable again and those initial butterflies at the start of your relationship with your partner begins to re-emerge. Also, having a safe space where you can freely offload your stresses about everything that is happening around you without the fear of being judged by others.
If you are ready to break these cycles, let's work together to find healthy ways to manage your difficulties, make positive changes in your life and heal those old wounds. I offer a relational and a down to earth approach to counselling that will help you make these changes a reality.
How do we get started?
We will have a free 15 minute consultation appointment to get an understanding of what has brought you to therapy, and if we would be a good fit to work with one another.
Following this, we can discuss further regular counselling sessions (if needed), which typically takes place at the same time each week for 50 minutes.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
