There are a number of reasons you may be seeking counselling. You could be having difficulties in your relationships, suffering from depression or struggling to overcome an addiction.

We can build a unique therapeutic relationship that will help you to gain insight and understanding so that you can improve your self-esteem, communicate more effectively, build safer boundaries and heal from your pain.
I am an integrative counsellor which means I use a range of methods from different approaches so that I tailor therapy to your individual needs. I work holistically to heal your mind, body and soul. I can help you with a wide range of life difficulties. Together we can explore the issues that are troubling you whether these stem from your past, the present or your fears and anxieties about your future. I will provide you with a safe, non-judgemental and confidential space that will help us develop a unique therapeutic relationship that brings insight, understanding and acceptance and will help heal your pain. If you’re feeling overwhelmed at the thought of coming to counselling or just unsure please contact me and we can have a chat about what to expect and how counselling works.
Depression is an illness caused by changes in our brain chemistry and can feel disabling. Depression can range from feeling low (mild depression), to feeling that life is no longer worth living (clinical depression). Depression can leave you feeling hopeless, worthless and exhausted. It affects sleep, appetite and physical health. Depression is treatable and treatment will be dependent on your specific situation.
Feeling sad after a loved one has died is completely normal and a period of mourning is encouraged. However, if you are finding it difficult to move on with your life then you may benefit from help. Counselling will provide the space you need to talk about your loss and help you to manage the grief you are suffering.
If you have suffered from a traumatic event or you currently have PTSD, it is important you get the help and support you need. Research shows that counselling, and especially EMDR therapy is highly effective in treating past events and lessening the impact that these have on your life.
Low self-esteem can have a negative impact on your relationships, your work and your general well-being. Counselling will facilitate you to explore your feelings, gain insight and find ways to manage these limiting thoughts so that you can finally feel comfortable and happy with yourself.
Addiction can take form in many different ways such as food, gambling, sex, drugs and alcohol. Addictive and destructive patterns of behaviour are often linked to underlying issues and counselling can help you to identify the roots of these issues so that you can gain relief from thoughts and behaviours. EMDR therapy is also effective in helping to overcome compulsive behaviours.
Every relationship has arguments and disagreements, but managing these in a constructive way is what can be difficult. Therapy provides a neutral space to share and explore difficulties and will provide you with the tools so that you can learn to communicate more effectively and cope with disagreements in a positive and productive manner.
