Welcome to my website
.... struggling with a loss or bereavement?
.... worried about work or a relationship?
... suffering from depression or anxiety?
Perhaps there's just no time when you can stop..., take a breath..., look around..., reflect on and absorb what's going on in your life ...
No space where you can pause, make sense of things or gather yourself together in one place...
Could be you're soldiering on but, underneath it all, feeling isolated, unhappy or anxious - uncertain what to do or who to turn to. Talking with friends and family is often useful and might be all you need most of the time, but sometimes that may be difficult. It's then that speaking with someone outside your family or social group can help by bringing a fresh perspective and insight to whatever is troubling you. This is when meeting, in confidence, with a psychotherapist or counsellor can be helpful, whether its something recent that's upset you or you've been worried or unhappy for some time. It gives you an open space and time where you'll be listened to without judgment, taken seriously and encouraged to talk about and reflect on things in more depth. This helps you to focus, find clarity and re-gain your balance, enabling you to see your best way forward.

I underwent further training and have extensive experience as a Bereavement Counsellor. I'm particularly skilled and attuned to work in this field and my experience includes working with those who have suffered a traumatic bereavement such as a sudden death, a suicide, the death of a child. Please see Bereavement Counselling for more details.
I think we've all got far more emotional and psychological resources than we believe, and that the experience of feeling listened to and understood by another human being can help us tap into and realise more of those inner strengths. This enables us to move forward in our lives.
We're all unique with our own particular life experiences and history so I tailor my work to the personality and changing needs of each individual. My approach is relational, collaborative and flexible. Providing a safe ground for you to stand on I offer both support and challenge:
Counselling & Psychotherapy provide space for you to gain a deeper and broader understanding of yourself. This increase in self-awareness enables you to tap into your strengths, to see your life and relationships more clearly, to live more wholeheartedly and to more consciously choose your path ahead.
