About me

Firstly, I’d like to say that I appreciate how hard it must be for you, to have taken the first step to seeking help. You may be feeling like everything is just getting to you right now, maybe you are feeling low or anxious, anger, frustration or just desperate to change something in your life but find you are struggling with how? Maybe you are finding that no matter what you do to ignore what’s going on or how your felling, it all still finds a way of coming back and eating away at your confidence and self worth. We all have times where mental health issues affect us, we are not perfect beings and that’s ok. Recognising that it’s ok to talk about how you are feeling is a huge step to take. As your counsellor, I will not tell you to change, nor will I try to analyse you, I will be the non judgmental person you need, to facilitate a safe way for you to explore and go on to accept, who you are. By working together, we can develop a relationship which facilitates change within you, to overcome any obstacle in your way.

I also work with vulnerable adults and adolescents from 11years up, with issues relating to anxiety, depression, bereavement and social difficulties as well as more complex mental health issues, such as eating disorders, self-harm, trauma, autism, ADHD, ASD, ADD, bipolar disorder and BPD. Being labelled with these issues can be extremely hard for young people to accept, counselling helps you to talk through the feelings which may be confusing and overwhelming.

Some of the ways in which I work can include, creative play with both young people and adults, this form of therapy can be useful for those who find it hard to talk about feelings, it helps to find a way to express emotions, to understand how to move past difficulties with a deeper understanding of why things happen and how and why we react to them.

Counselling is about helping you to understand yourself more, it provides you with the tools you need to move forward.
