. . . feeling anxious, down or isolated?
. . . going through a difficult time in a relationship?
. . . struggling with a bereavement?
. . . adjusting to a life change (..divorce, illness, retirement)?
Perhaps there's no time when you can stop.., breathe..., take a look around..., reflect on and absorb what's been happening in your life.
No space to be still...., gather yourself together in one place... start to make sense of things.....
Maybe you've been soldiering on while, underneath, feeling unhappy and uncertain what to do or who to turn to. Speaking with family and friends is often useful and maybe all you need to do most of the time, but sometimes that may not be easy. This is when meeting with a psychotherapist or counsellor - someone from outside your social group and family - can help, through bringing a fresh perspective to whatever is troubling you, whether something recent has been upsetting or you've been unhappy or anxious for a long time.
I offer a space where you'll be listened to without judgment and taken seriously. As well as talking about what brings you to therapy now, I'll ask you to look back and reflect on your life thus far. This gives you a bigger perspective on who you are now and can often shed light on current difficulties, helping you understand yourself with more clarity and depth.
I think we have far more inner resources than we think and that being listened to can help uncover our hidden strengths, enabling us to find our best path ahead.

Being mindful, present and aware deepens our understanding of our self and others, increases our ability to focus as well as making life and relationships more meaningful
I trained as an integrative psychotherapist, meaning I draw on several different psychotherapy/counselling approaches, tailoring how I work in response to each individual and their needs.
In psychotherapy sessions my approach includes:
- Encouraging you to reflect with curiousity and compassion (not self-criticism) on who you are and whatever may be troubling you.
- Bringing your attention to the many different aspects of experience – physical, emotional, cognitive, psychological, spiritual - helping you gain a more holistic sense of yourself.
- Sharing my thoughts and offering a new perspective.
- Suggesting strategies you can use in daily life to support you (e.g., mindfulness techniques to reduce anxiety). See Client Resources.
My aim is to support and encourage self-awareness. This builds resilience and enables you to tap into your strengths, see your life and relationships more clearly, live more wholeheartedly and more consciously choose your path ahead.
