I am a trained integrative counsellor and work with a diverse group of clients from 18 years old.
You want sessions uniquely tailored to suit you?
Not everyone's issue will fit neatly into a category or can be treated in the same way. One size does not fit all.
Counselling with me allows you to share your concerns within a safe and confidential space with someone neutral who has no preconceived ideas of who you are and who is there to guide you with compassion (hopefully) through your concerns. I approach counselling with integrity and a supportive down to earth approach. Individuals and couples welcome.
I am happy to give a FREE 20 min phone consultation.
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
Stuck in a negative cycle (in relationships)
What do you love most about your job?
As someone who has benefited myself from counselling I have witnessed first hand both personally and professionally the difference that counselling can make in your life. I was skeptical at first but counselling has turned out to be the best investment I ever made in myself. Seeing people transform their lives is immensely rewarding.
What inspired you to start your own business?
I worked for 6 years as a voluntary bereavement counsellor and counselling helped me at a point when I was experiencing my own major life crisis. This is what inspired me to start my own private practice having completed the rigorous training required to do so.
Why should our clients choose you?
Greater self-awareness and insight about your thoughts, feelings and actions. This gives you more clarity as to who you are and how you got here. Perhaps you feel the past is holding you back? Armed with this knowledge and understanding can help you to make more conscious choices for yourself starting from now.
Seeing things from a different perspective on the relationships or experiences that are causing you difficulty. Exploring your concerns in the counselling space creates opportunity for some surprising insights and discoveries which can lead you to see things in a more enlightened yet realistic and constructive way.
Increased intimacy and connections with yourself and others. By understanding your relationship dynamics and what gets in the way of you relating to one another, you can gradually begin to risk expressing your needs, to change the negative dance between you, to feel closer, connected and more in tune with one another.
Coping with persistent and difficult feelings. Giving space to your emotions and feelings and having them heard and validated in therapy can be a very reparative experience that can eventually lead on to no longer bottling up your emotions and feelings and/or projecting them on to others. There are also mindfulness techniques which can be helpful in managing persistent negative thoughts and ruminating.
Development of self-acceptance and self-worth. Being heard and accepted for being you can also lead to increased self-acceptance, a greater zest for life, and peace of mind.
Counselling can be a challenging process but it can also be extremely rewarding. I understand the importance of boundaries but I am also a warm, down to earth and insightful therapist whose aim is to work alongside you throughout the process.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you wish to discuss your circumstances in order to see whether I can be of help.

Emotional focused therapy for couples. As its name suggests, it's an approach that focuses very much on how people deal with their emotions and how they send emotional signals to their partner and then how this emotion becomes the “music” of their interactional “dance”. It's an attachment-oriented approach. Attachment is a broad theory of personality and human development that focuses primarily on emotions. This approach assumes that we all have very deep needs for safe connection and emotional contact and that when we don't get those needs we get stuck in very negative interactional patterns. My aim is to help you understand how those patterns came about and how to de-escalate the emotional triggers which leads many couples to become stuck in self defeating negative cycles. I will give you the tools to help you to discover a new "dance"... one in which you can both hopefully experience feeling more connected and in tune with one another.
Bereavement counselling with me offers: To help you, the bereaved, accept the loss by helping you talk about the loss. To help you to identify and express feelings related to the loss, i.e. guilt, blame, shame, anger, anxiety, helplessness and sadness. To help you to separate emotionally from the person who died and to take into consideration your own needs. To provide support and time to reflect on grieving at significant times, such as birthdays and anniversaries. To help you understand that the grief process is very individual and to provide continuous support, as necessary. To help you understand your method of coping and what works best for you. To idenfity coping problems you may be having, to address them and to make recommendations on any further course of action that may be necessary. To address ways in which you can stay healthy and keep functioning. To help you re-establish relationships with others who may be going through their own grief process in a different way to yours. To help you develop a healthy image of yourself and the world.
