A warm welcome to my page!
I am therapist who works with adults of all ages, who might experience depression, anxiety, panic attacks, parenting difficulties, relationship problems and many other unwanted thoughts and feelings.
I also work with children and young people and I have specific training for this client group.
Working with adults
I have a special interest in working with parents in learning new skills in managing parenting and the stress and overwhelming feelings that being a parent can bring. I have years of experience in helping parents to get back their happy and enjoyable child.
In my practice, I see many adults who still pay the price of past unhealthy relationships with parents. If you feel that feeling stuck, sad, unhappy, lacking self-esteem and confidence, always trying to please others, always getting into destructive relationships in your life, might be a consequence of relating to your parents or because of adverse childhood experiences, get in touch. I can help!
Working with children
For many young children (4-11 years old), their language is play. Through play, children express their thoughts and feelings, make sense of their inner world and of what's going on around them, they can learn to integrate, process and move on. I can enable your child to give a voice to powerful, and maybe destructive and unbearable feelings and thoughts.
I work with children who experience outbursts of anger at home or at school, bullying, exam anxiety, sadness and low mood. Counselling can help your child to be more confident and resilient, improving on self-worth and self-esteem.
Working with teenagers
When working with teenagers, some of them will engage with art materials like paint or sand, but most of them they just want to talk and to be listened. Being a teenager presents with so many challenges - difficult relationships with parents and peers, exam stress and anxiety, pressure from school and social media, identity crisis.
For a young person, therapy can be a safe heaven in a harsh world, where they feel that no one can understand them, and no one is in their corner. For a young person, to have someone in their corner, like a therapist, can make the difference between feeling all alone and overwhelmed by powerful, sometimes destructive, thoughts and feelings, and feeling contained, valued, supported and empowered to grow in a person that's confident, resilient and brave to challenge himself/herself and the world around.
Therapy can change your life, or the life of your child. Please don't hesitate to give me a ring and discuss your needs. I am here to help you, just a phone call away. Reach out!
I work under the BACP Ethical Framework and under close clinical supervision.

I am committed to continuous professional development and I attend training days and conferences on an ongoing basis, in order to further enhance my skills and to be up-to-date with the research in the counselling field.
