Why Now?

Does life feel like its getting on top of you?
Could you benefit from a place to take some time-out?
... to explore your thoughts and feelings
... to get back on a front foot again

We all encounter difficulties in life, where some may feel more challenging than others to cope with alone. I offer a place to where we can explore such struggles that may cause us to feel sad, anxious and overwhelmed. These diffculties could be due to Relationships, Bereavement, Family Issues, Mental Health, Depression, Anxiety. Counselling can bring awareness and change to all difficulties that may arise in ones life through exploring these difficulties within counselling. I believe that is achieved by creating a comfortable environment and a relaxed atmosphere to work within.

"Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate." ~ Carl Jung


  • I am fully trained psychotherapist and Registered with the BACP.

  • I have completed my Masters in Counselling and have worked with Mind (Mental Health Charity). I have many years of experience dealing with Anxiety, Depression, Trauma and mental health disorders.

  • Experience

    I am experienced in helping clients who have experienced difficulties with :

  • Trauma: I have experience working with Trauma and understand the complexity and the impact trauma can have on your life even after the event has past.
  • Stress: The impact of stress has in life is all around it can cause physical and mental impact on our life’s.
  • Relationships: Our relationships can become difficult at times and cause difficulties in our everyday life and cause stress and impact our mental health.
  • Panic Attacks: can feel like the scariest thing, the importance is to understand the triggers and what these panic attacks are related to.
  • Anxiety: There many different types of anxiety but they all cause physical symptoms which impact us and can affect are daily life.
  • Bereavement: affects everyone in different ways, and it's possible to experience any range of emotions. There is no right or wrong way to feel.
  • Redundancy: Losing a job is a huge adjustment and it’s normal to experience a range of emotions. We may feel shock, anger, resentment, relief and much more all in a short period of time.
  • Depression: Can be more then be just feeling low in can be low mood that last long time. Depression can impact our daily life’s and seem less worthwhile.
  • Addiction: It important to understand how addiction began and it may been used as way to cope with feelings or what was going on at the time.
  • Mental Health: Can have an impact on our life’s and those around us. There so many different types of mental health disorder but they all have an impact on us. Medication can be important but seeing a psychotherapist can help understand how to manage our mental health and understand our past.

  • What is the difference between a counsellor and psychotherapist

    A counsellor is not trained to understand the impact that the past has on on our emotions and impact it maybe having presently on us. A psychotherapist focus is on the person's thought processes, and how these may be influenced by past events such that they cause problems in the present. This allows the client to gain insight into chronic physical and emotional difficulties. Thus allowing them to understand further their patterns of behaviour.

    As psychotherapist i offer counselling that allows you to get to the root cause of what is affecting you. I am more then a counsellor and offer a space to explore the unconscious. Psychotherapy is a skill that has been to taught to psychotherapist which i have developed by completing my Master in Counselling and continue to develop with experience and further studying
