About me

The Importance of our Relationships

Many individuals contact me expressing relationship struggles, for a space to explore what they may be experiencing in their intimate relationships, their friendships, with family members and with work colleagues.

Past fears tend to become triggered in certain relational dynamics which can cause individuals to react on survival responses, fighting, freezing or exiting situations. 

This could mean a colleague or manager can cause individuals to feel small and incapable. Individuals can experience a lack of trust among friendships and struggle to fully connect with others due to their own inner critic. Individuals may feel their self esteem is strongly impacted by dynamics with their family members.

Intimate relationships require vulnerability and because of this, individuals may find they are struggling with aspects of themselves that are trying to avoid vulnerability. This means they can find themselves looking for signs they can not trust the other, vigilant for signs of the relationship possibly not working, feelings of anger around not feeling seen or important, as well as experiencing fears of themselves not being enough for the other or abandonment. They may also find they are avoiding relationships altogether.

We learn so much from our families from values and lifestyle, to how to express feelings including anger, how to manage conflict and how to offer an apology. We also may have not seen healthy expressions of this communication and we may not have learned how to handle certain situations.

Each individual in a couple dynamic brings their own learned styles into their couple dynamic and this can be the cause of so much tension. I am able to help explore what learned strategies may be helpful and unhelpful, to individuals and couples who are struggling.

I have a lot of experience working with couples and individuals from different cultural backgrounds, exploring culturally learned beliefs and values. Helping individuals explore their individual values, wants and needs, as well as navigating life choices for themselves and as a couple.

Relationships have a strong impact on our mental and physical health and they are important for wellbeing. Many have found themselves in painful dynamics, repeating the same cycles of distress within their relationships. If you recognise that you are struggling with relationship difficulties, or that you are part of a couple who are experiencing repeating themes of arguments and ruptures, or there has been an incident your relationship is not recovering from, I welcome you to contact me.

My Interests

It has always been a passion of mine to help individuals explore how to find what brings meaning and passion into life. Talking with individuals to explore purpose and potential possibilities in life. Life can hit us with unexpected changes, loss of a loved one, divorce, career change, moving areas, adapting to later stages in life. I am interested in being beside individuals as they get in touch with their wants and needs for the changes they are now experiencing. 

I have great interest in working with individuals who struggle with social anxiety, extreme shyness and low self esteem. I like to help individuals strengthen their sense of self and self esteem through helping individuals explore their values and what matters to them. I also help individuals identify memories or experiences which could be the causes of low self esteem. 

I offer ways to explore wants and needs through introducing concepts of Jungian Analysis, EMDR, Parts Work Theory & Transactional Analysis. I draw upon these teachings as they organically connect with individuals stories. 

Jungian Themed Workshops 

I love to work with local artist Rachel Cox delivering Jungian themed Art and Self development workshops. Individuals are welcome to join these workshops for self exploration with like minded individuals. These workshops are not group therapy, yet include the introduction of Jungian Psychology Concepts, exploration of these concepts through mediums such as clay, painting and charcoal, followed by discussion of the themes explored. 

 We have enjoyed exploring concepts related to fairytale, folklore, mythology, shadow work, the tension of opposites, the golden shadow and dreams. We have many more themes to explore!

Previously held at Newcastle Art Centre, we are now based at the Cumberland Arms within Newcastle upon Tyne.

My background 

My past experience is varied! I worked with Ex offenders for 12years, whilst working with individuals who struggled with addiction in Newcastle's Plumber Court, with the Victim Support Service, the RVI's Eating Disorder service, and in St George's hospital as well as St Nicholas' hospital. I have worked within Rehabilitation services in the local community and I have Counselled individuals privately for over a decade. 

I love to keep up with the most update Professional Training, and I enjoy sharing what I learn with individuals who can benefit from this. 

If you have any queries do contact me! I look forward to hearing from you!
