Welcome, and thank you

for visiting my website

I am a UKCP registered psychotherapist, Integrative Counsellor and CBT Therapist

I have over 22 years of counselling experience, specializing in individual counselling with adults

It has been an honour to provide counseling within the community including schools, prison service, health care, corporate settings and private practice. I am passionate about helping my clients cultivate awareness and clarity in their lives, and discover their inner wisdom and capacity for growth and healing.

At times, we can become stuck in old habits, patterns, behaviour and fears that no longer serve us and get in the way of authentic and meaninful relationships with ourselves and other people, keeping us from feeling inner peace and happiness.

Using a holistic, integrative and collaborative approach I will support you to skillfully navigate through the suffering and difficulties life throws at us, and connect your with your inner strengh and resilience for emotional, mental welbeing.

I look forward to connecting with you and supporting you with the next step in your healing journey.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

Panic attacks - the best way to describe a panic attack is an intense short period of anxiety without any obvious explanation such as an external threat or medical reason. Panic attack symptoms can include breathlessness, faintness, nausea, chest pains, irregular heart beat, and feeling terrified. They are not life threatening but often the first time you experience one you think you are about to die or that you are experiencing a heart attack. The main trigger in panic attacks is often the fear that you are going to have a panic attacks. CBT offers ways of identifying the thinking patterns that are reinforcing this belief and causing you to panic. I will assist you in retraining yourself to cope with the irrational fear of panicking, so that you can begin to take control of the situation and enable you to increase your ability to cope with panic attacks if they happen and more importantly lessen your fears of them.

Emotional care - recovering from surgery, its normal to feel sad, angry and helpless.

My main aim to make therapy accessible to all, I am passionate about working with those who are experiencing life transitions associated with becoming older. I am also passionate about working with people at the end of their lives or who are terminally ill. I consider it vital that I maintain an open mind to the presence of gender, racial, cultural and socio-economic diversity and to be aware of unintentional bias that could greatly influence the counselling process.
