My Approach

Most of us would agree that life can be really tough and painful at times, whether it is stress, bereavement, relationships, sexuality, bullying and workplace or family / relationship problems. Sometimes it can be a struggle to cope with strong emotions such as anxiety, depression, loneliness, anger, lack self self-esteem. Much of what we feel can originate from events in earlier life and feel confusing or bigger than we can cope with alone.

Working daytime or evening, sensitively online with some potential face to face, I offer a confidential space for people to make sense of and come to terms with their experience. Skilled support can help you to find ways of coping and to understand your choices and responses.

Working to create a safe, trusting working relationship, we might use aspects of different ways of working, including calming techniques, understanding the impact of trauma or difficult early life events, working with your bodily tensions and sensations, and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).

I also offer clinical supervision 1:1 or groups and couples work.
