Whether you are coming for individual counselling or couples / relationship counselling; it can be helpful to have time to look at these relationships, particularly where there is a lot of conflict. I can support you to review these; consider if these are still meeting your needs and look at what changes are needed to address this. This also applies to the relationship you have with yourself, as often there is a human tendency to be very hard on ourselves, when this may not be justified. I will support you to be more compassionate to yourself. When looking at relationships I consider an attachment focus helpful and also an appreciation of the impact of trauma on how we relate with ourselves and others.
It can be really hard to manage when someone you love dies, moves away, leaves home; or when your circumstances change; which means having to adjust to a 'new normal'. I can help you to make sense of this, so you can grieve and are then able to move forward in your life.
Living with anxiety and depression can be really challenging and can impact you in terms of reduced life opportunities. This is often because of the need to avoid feelings of distress and the subsequence avoidance cycle that comes with this. I am able to explore this with you, consider where some of the feelings come from and look at ways of managing these feelings, so you can respond to these issues, in a more helpful way for you. I am informed by the principle of compassion around these challenges and support this in the work we do; whilst also linking the work around this to values you hold.
If you live with a long-term condition, then this may be challenging to accept and manage, and I can help you to explore this. Also sudden illnesses which are untreatable/incurable, can be absolutley heart breaking. I can offer emotional support to the person who is ill, and/or the partner/friend; who is also impacted by the anticipation of the loss of someone who is important to them.
For some of us; childhood experiences have not provided all of the things we should have (ideally) had. This can mean that there are things that need to be considered as we become adults; as these previous life experiences, may cause challenges in how we form and maintain relationships as adults. In particular, things can surface when people become parents; so looking at our own experiences of being 'parented', can help with making parenting decisions in a conscious way.
You may want to explore couples counselling as a distinct intervention, where you both recognise that, there are issues that need to be explored, around the relationship you share.
I am qualified as an Integrative Counsellor so am able to work with supervisees that are also utilising this modality in their work with clients.
Take a look here:
My Face to Face options are available on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings from 6pm. This is depending on current clients use and the availability of room hire.
My Online Counselling Service has more flexibility for appointments during the day and on some evenings; but is not available on weekends.

I am often asked this question and the answer is, this will depend on you, your expectations and preferences, and the issue or need you have identified.
Traditionally counselling is arranged weekly, but I am aware from clients that this is not always what they want; or indeed feel they need.
I usually do not state a specific number of sessions that may be needed, when we start the process, or decide exactly how we will work, as I find this can change.
To support your evaluation, we will review the process together, at the end of each session and consider if you want to continue.
I feel strongly that this needs to be determined by you; potentially with guidance from me; particularly if we are looking at using a particular process.
I can facilitate this review, through you evaluating your experience in the sessions and from this, assessing if it is working for you and meeting your needs.
The answer to these questions is that counselling can help you to move forward if you want to.
I cannot make you better........ but I can help you, to help yourself.
I can help to shed some light on what is going on for you and by understanding yourself, you can regain a sense of control.
Counselling aims to empower you; so you can build more self confidence, more resilience and more self awareness and help yourself to feel a little better, than you feel right now.
Counselling cannot be done to you or anyone you feel may need it.
It can be a challenging process, so needs to be right for you and that includes, being the right time for you.
We may need counselling, but we also need to feel ready for counselling.
Are you in need and feel ready to explore??
Then please send me a message using the contact me form or email/text me.
Although counselling can be helpful, for a wide range of mental health issues, when you are feeling very overwhelmed, sometimes this is not enough, particularly where you are experiencing significant suicidal thoughts.
If you are experiencing suicidal thoughts, have a plan to act on these, feel unable to keep yourself safe now and/or in the near future, then more urgent support is needed. If this applies to you, then reach out to the following for help and advice:
