I'm a fully trained, experienced counsellor. And I'm also a flawed fellow human. There is no judgement here.
I will work with you to help unpick what you are feeling and why. I will listen very carefully to what is hurting you and work with you to understand and release it. Together we will find a way to set you on an easier path, one that is meaningful for you. Finding answers is an inside job. If the answers are truly yours, they are much more likely to stick.
People tell me that as a counsellor I am kind, warm, intuitive and non-judgmental. And also sometimes funny! I am passionate about mental health and I am constantly learning new ways to support my clients.
I think that laughing, swearing and generally being human is absolutely fine in the counselling room, if that is how you best express yourself. I offer an open, friendly space where I hope you can be free to be you without filter and say whatever you need to in your own way.
Who do I work with?
I work with adults over 18. I specialise in:
Issues of anxiety and stress (e.g., general anxiety, overthinking, phobias, panic attacks, OCD).
Low self-esteem (low self-confidence, self-criticism, loss of direction, a sense of feeling stuck, mid-life crisis).
Trauma and abuse (childhood trauma or abuse, difficult past experiences, traumatic events).
Working with neuro-atypical clients (Autism and ADHD).
I have come across a wide variety of issues as a counsellor for agencies and NHS clients and can support you in many other areas as well.
