About me

I offer counselling and psychotherapy to children, young people, and also adults who are experiencing difficulties with feeling anxious, angry, stressed or depressed. It may be that there have been big changes at home, school or college or you or a family member are experiencing difficulties with relationships with those who are important to you. I am also able to support new parents with adjusting to life at home with a newborn baby.

Counselling and therapy for children and young people.

Children and young people cannot always find the right words to clearly express their feelings, they may not understand why they feel the way they do or what is happening to them. Their distress can be shown through changes in their behaviour. They may become angry, upset, or quiet and withdrawn, they may be having problems with friendships and family relationships. Their work at school or college can be affected as they are preoccupied with their difficulties, their concentration becomes affected and their sleep disrupted.

I am a fully accredited Arts Psychotherapist which means I am able to use a range of creative activities to help the children and young people I work with, to explore and express their feelings. I am also able to explore Cognitive Behaviour Therapy techniques that may be used to help the young person learn to manage different feelings and situations.

Support for new parents.

Welcoming a new baby into the family can be both an exciting and exhausting time. Your thoughts about what it may be like before your baby arrives may be quite different from how things are after the birth. It may seem as if other parents you know are coping much better than you are. You may find yourself feeling anxious or depressed, perhaps the birth did not happen in the way you hoped. All of this can affect how you feel about your baby, you may not feel able to speak about this to anyone as you are worried about what they may think. I can meet with you and your baby to explore your worries without judgment.

Counselling and Therapy for Adults.

When we are struggling we may find that we no longer want to spend time with the people who are important to us, our working life may become affected. We may start to look for different coping mechanisms to help us with this difficult time.These can help us feel better in the short term but can lead to ongoing problems in the future. Asking for help from family and friends may not always seem to be the right thing to do. We may feel embarrassed about speaking out or do not want to worry the people who are important to us.

I have 15 years of experience working in NHS mental health services supporting adults who are experiencing a wide range of difficulties including depression, anxiety and relationship problems. I am able to draw upon this and use my skills as a cognitive behaviour therapist, if needed, to help you identify the thoughts that are affecting your feelings and behaviour. We can then explore together the best approach to help you make the changes you feel you need.

Next Steps

I can be contacted by phone to discuss your needs before we arrange an initial consultation meeting. Alternatively, you can email me or use the contact me page on my website to arrange a convenient time to meet. I am able to offer short and longer term support and can speak with you about this when we meet together. I look forward to hearing from you.
