Sometimes life can be challenging.
Perhaps you’ve suffered from loss, a bereavement, or even a betrayal or the ending of a relationship? Do you feel stuck and low, and craving to feel better about yourself?
Stressful events can impact us all in different ways, and our ability to bounce-back can sometimes be hampered for many reasons. Negative feelings can arise after stressful events, and lead to feeling low, to ruminative thinking and depression. Stress can also cause anxiety, anger and overwhelm, especially during the Covid-19 lockdown.
Balanced emotional states can become disrupted, and behaviour changes occur and often repeat themselves again and again, which can lead to feeling out of control. Because of this, many people turn to therapy for a confidential and unbiased view and to regain a sense of self.
How do I work?
I am a qualified and officially Registered Psychotherapeutic Counsellor, and I work with my clients using a variety of approaches integrated to suit the individual. This way of working has helped many clients to come to terms with the past and move through ‘blocks’ and traumas, and feel more grounded and empowered.
Using Relational Transactional Analysis, Mindfulness skills, Body awareness, and Human Potential Coaching, I help my clients to empower themselves and generate self-compassion whilst ultimately transforming their quality of life, work, and relationships.
Often I work with the deep unconscious processes that impact us all, as well as cognitively - equipping my clients with practical take-home tools to use in every day life situations.
What are my areas of expertise?
I have helped clients with bereavement, depression, grief, anxiety, overwhelm, low self-esteem, workplace issues and career transitions, as well as fertility issues, sex and sexuality, identity issues, major depressive disorder, mood swings, trauma and generally being stuck.
How long are sessions?
Whatever the particular issue is, I offer a free initial 15-minute phone call where we can discuss your challenges in a confidential space, to see if you like my style, and if I can help you. I will then offer you a 50-minute appointment where we can go over a full assessment, and decide if working with each other is right. I usually work with all clients for six sessions before deciding to work longer-term.
Who do I work with?
I offer individuals, couples and groups short-term (six -12 weeks) and long-term (open-ended) Psychotherapeutic Counselling sessions in person or via an encrypted video-call. Together, we can work at a pace that suits you, to help feel good about yourself and thriving in your life.
