We all have times where mental health affects us, we are not perfect beings and that’s ok.
If you have arrived here, you have made the first step in acknowledging there is a need to talk to someone about how you’re feeling, so well done for taking that step, I know how hard it can be to seek the help you deserve.
So often, we are told to keep our feelings to
ourselves and hide away negative thoughts, which as we now know, can lead to anxiety, depression and a loss of identity, as we conform to what others think we should do.
You may have reached a point in life, where you feel no longer able to conform to expectations of others but dont know how to change your way of being, this is where therapy can help.
Speaking with a trained, professional counsellor will help you to find the key to unlocking the doors, which are preventing you from being able to move forward in your life.
By working together, we can develop a relationship which facilitates change within you, to help overcome any obstacle.
In a time where mental health is being made more aware to us, there are many people who offer to help change how you are to fit into society and to be more accepted by what is classed as normal however, no-one is normal.
Counselling is about helping you to understand yourself, it provides you with the tools you can use, to develop the confidence to find your own answers and be your own “normal”.
I offer an open and safe place for you to explore your feelings in a non-judgemental way. As your counsellor, you will find i am warm, empathic and understanding.

Depression, fear, and anxiety are some of the most common and uncomfortable emotions that we can experience at some point in our lives. Through counselling, we are able to recover the motivation, perspective, and joy that you once had in your life.
Many individuals can experience symptoms associated with painful and traumatic circumstances. Anxiety, fear, and hopelessness are a few emotions that can linger post traumatic events. I can help you overcome these symptoms and guide you through the process of grief and healing.
Relationship counselling can be beneficial to couples who are looking to strengthen their emotional connection, in all stages of their relationship. Therapy sessions are held with both couples and is a supportive place to discuss issues and solutions to better strengthen your relationship.
People often find listening to others experiences, helps them relate and open up to sharing their own experiences. Sharing in a safe environment can sometimes be daunting but speaking with others who have similar experiences can often make us feel like we are not alone.
Family life can sometimes be stressful, there maybe mental health issues with one or more members with which other family members are unable to relate to, this can cause friction and strained relations within the family. Counselling offers a safe space for everyone to communicate within a non-judgemental environment and enables individuals feelings to be expressed without the fear of being misunderstood.
