There are times in life when we need some additional support, to be with someone who offers us their full, undivided attention and can hold those thoughts and feeling which can be overwhelming and difficult to voice. I constantly feel privileged to do this job and be given permission to walk alongside clients who are hurting, struggling and vulnerable. In my 10 years as a Counsellor I have seen it be a of transformation and change for countless clients.

Whatever brings you to counselling, you will receive a warm welcome, compassion and no judgement. We will explore what has brought you to counselling, what you want to focus on and what you want to be different. I am an Integrative Counsellor which means I draw on a range of theory and models to inform my work ensuring everyone is treated as an individual, not a label, diagnosis or number. It is important in Counselling to find the balance between moving towards growth but not pushing ourselves beyond our current limits. This can sometimes mean slowing clients down and other times exploring what is preventing progress.
Counselling can help with a wide range of issues, because I tailor my approach to each client you can be assured that you will be treated as an individual. Just some examples of the issues counselling can help you address are:

- Depression, whether mild or severe it can have a deep impact on our lives and counselling may help both to understand the underlying causes, as well as helping you cope day-to-day. This includes Postnatal Depression.

- Grief

- Persistent anxiety and panic attacks

- Difficulties with anger

- Family and relationship difficulties

- Disordered eating or weight related struggles

- Low self-esteem or body image issues

- Exploring identity issues around sexuality or gender, including transitioning

- Navigating life’s transitions such as losing your job, starting university, becoming a parent, moving house, or children leaving home.

- Coming to terms with traumatic events including abuse

- Self-injury
