Online Therapy

As a counsellor I aim to create a supportive, non-judgmental, empathetic space so you can safely explore challenges and beliefs that are limiting your personal well-being and relationships. Everyone is unique so timing, therapies and techniques are woven into sessions depending on your individual needs. Counselling can support you to find clarity, understand your actions/reactions, identify your strengths, resources, goals and workable solutions and above all, find hope to move forward more positively. An area of personal interest is mindful somatic approaches when working with trauma memory. Trauma can be from  physical (e.g. accident/abuse) and/or emotional (e.g. grief/relationships) distress and can be a single event or accumulating. Trauma work can help when past events affect you everyday, in ways such as your confidence, your reactions and your relationships with others.  I find integrating trauma understanding with talk therapies invaluable with all clients. I also specialise in sexual abuse and grief by suicide counselling. Counselling is available in person or online. When counselling can help : -Emotional distress- stress, anxiety, depression, self-harm, self-esteem etc. -Relationships – couple, families, parenting, work place etc. -Trauma - abuse, grief, developmental relationships, accidents, PTSD etc. -Life transitions - relationship breakups, work changes, personal loss, etc. -Diversity-physical disabilities, neuro (e.g. ADHD), sexual identity, cultural etc. I look forward to walking beside you on your journey.
