About me

At the heart of my counselling practice is my belief that every person is born with the natural capacity to lead a rich and fulfilling life with an inbuilt capacity to heal.

Every so often, though, life can feel difficult as we struggle to come to terms with day to day challenges , relational experiences, work-related conflicts and events that happen to us.

Sometimes we don’t know what is bothering us, we just have a sense that something doesn’t seem right or that there must be more to life than what we are currently experiencing.
At times like these, it can be good to talk to somebody who can help you to sort out what is the matter in a way that you cannot do by yourself.

I believe that all distress has its origins in early relational experiences and can only be repaired in the context of a human relationship. Therefore, I offer to work in partnership with you to explore a wide range of emotional and relationship experiences including depression, anxiety and stress-related conditions.

I have specific experience and a genuine desire to work with people who have experienced traumatic bereavement and loss, either in early life or subsequently. As well as bereavement I’m interested in exploring issues of emotional neglect, life transitions, spirituality and religion and issues of identity, related to twins and multiple births.

Following a three-year course in Somatic experiencing I integrate talking therapy and working with nervous system regulation to encourage a natural resolution to trauma and difficulties you are experiencing.

I can't claim to know exactly what it feels like to be you because every person is unique. I am however committed to walking alongside you through your process and look forward to seeing you emerge from what can often feel like an impossible situation with more clarity, purpose, meaning and fulfilment.

When you are ready to discuss your concerns further, contact me.
