Man was made for Joy & Woe 

And when this we rightly know 

Thro the World we safely go 

Joy & Woe are woven fine 

A Clothing for the soul divine 

Under every grief & pine

Runs a joy with silken twine

Welcome...

 

Sadly, many of us have never felt really supported through the difficult times in our lives.   

Those closest to us are often unable to help, nor tolerate our distress.

 

Has this been your experience too?

I can help you make sense of what might appear confusing and painful. Clarity and relief often comes, not by wishing or analysing away the darkness, but by listening carefully to what it wants you to hear. 

As a relational therapist, my primary focus is on providing you with a warm and non-judgemental space to explore all of what it means to be human.

 

Maybe you are going through a difficult life transition or have recently experienced a loss of some kind.

You may feel despair and have occasional suicidal thoughts or be finding it increasingly difficult to motivate yourself in the normal way. Therapy may help you to overcome these kinds of challenges.

 

I have worked with people who have sought counselling or therapy for the following reasons:

  • diagnosed conditions such as depression and obsessive disorders, Asperger's syndrome, bipolar disorder, and acute social anxiety.

  • confusion around sexuality and sexual dysfunction

  • challenging life transitions (illness, career change, divorce and cultural acclimation)

  • addictions, such as alcoholism, marijuana abuse and sexual compulsivity

  • looking for direction and meaning in life

  • seeking to know yourself more deeply

  • suicidal ideation and attempts

  • worry, stress and negativity

  • relationship and family problems, including domestic abuse

  • chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia

  • post natal depression


Trained as an integrative psychotherapist, I draw from various theoretical models and techniques where appropriate for each individual client. 

 

My work is greatly informed by practical mindfulness techniques and their philosophical underpinnings, both of which I have found to be essential for everyday well-being and, crucially, for important realizations about the nature of mind and the process of experience.
