Many clients who work with me often lose themselves in the service of supporting their loved ones, family, friends and colleagues, before they start looking after themselves. While values of kindness and care for others are fundamentally positive, they can cause stress, low mood and anxiety for those who miss to establish self-care. Counselling & psychotherapy can help you to reprioritise your self-care and emotional wellbeing.
I am a caring and compassionate counsellor, psychotherapist & EMDR practitioner who is familiar with the life challenges we humans sometimes experience. Many circumstances can cause a great deal of suffering, such as the loss of a loved one, adversity in childhood or later in life, events that cause high levels of stress, or work arrangements that are not aligned with our needs. Over the years of my practice I learnt that a holistic approach to therapy helped many clients to feel better about themselves.
Like all UKCP registered psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors I can work with a wide range of issues, but here are some areas in which I have a special interest or additional experience.
