"There is no mountain insurmountable, nor storm so rough, that should be travelled alone."

Life can bring many challenges and some are more easy than others to manage. We all need a little help, support and insight, to understand what we are going through, find direction and strength, and choose the right path ahead. It can be done!

Trained as an integrative counsellor, I draw from a variety of models including Humanistic, Cognitive (including CBT), Psychodynamic, and Mindfulness practice, to provide best practice to help your individual worries, needs, and difficulties and find that better path!

So How can these help you???

Humanistic therapy is a great way to get to the real heart of matters as it prioritises your needs, your values, your beliefs, your life, as centre and the starting point for all healing...you walk your own shoes!

CBT focuses on how you are really thinking (which you may not even notice!), in the present, how it is serving you and ways it can be addressed if not, alongside weakening and retraining those connections in your mind to have more realistic, positive thought processes. It is very useful especially if you tend to be self critical or under confident.

Psychodynamic insight can help you become aware of underlying hurtful past influences and emotional affects, that led to poor self beliefs, and unhelpful emotional reactions and behaviours that prevent you from living fully in the present. We may fail to recognise these, but can become more conscious of them. In doing so , you will be able to develop compassionate understanding, have the opportunity to revisit and reframe those periods kindly, supportively, regain your power of choice, and implement new ways of living, gaining a road to freedom from the past and its holds upon you.

Mindfulness is incorporated within my therapy sessions alongside relaxation and grounding techniques. These help to provide you with the tools to strengthen your self care and begin to change anxious states or over thinking, to become clearer, more productive, and positive in outlook. To value the here and now - just as you are.

Working together, these approaches can lead to a more relaxed, accepting, positive way of being. You can then move forward in beginning to see who you really are, what you want, your potentials, what you bring in life, and to make amazing goals for your road ahead!

Sessions are approx 50 minutes on a weekly basis, and I offer both short and long term therapy. I can provide private, confidential therapy in very relaxed settings with free parking just outside either premises.
