Work with me

Counselling and Psychotherapy

Life can be really challenging and sometimes we all need some extra support to help navigate it.

I work with LGBTQ+ clients and those who feel like their identity and experiences might mean other therapists don’t get them.

Sessions are held online via zoom and cost £55 for a 50 minute session.  Working online means you don’t need to worry about location and can instead focus on finding the right therapist for you.

A concessionary rate of £50 available for students and those on low incomes, please let me know in your enquiry e-mail if you require one of my concessionary spaces. My working hours are: Mon – Thursday 9am – 4pm

I help people in areas such as:

Anxiety and panic attacks

 

Improving Relationships

Processing difficult past experiences and dysfunctional family dynamics, break ups, exploring barriers to connection and communication.

LGBTQ+ therapy

What is therapy with me like?

I create a welcoming space to explore your experiences with you and use my knowledge of attachment, self-compassion and trauma-informed polyvagal theory, along with insights and hope from my lived experience, to help you better know, understand and accept yourself.

Together, we will explore patterns in your relationships, how your past might be affecting your present and what to do about it. Working relationally means I’ll be keeping an eye on how your patterns might play out in the therapy room and looking out for opportunities for us to practice doing things differently, so you can grow the confidence to make the changes you want in the real world.
My counselling draws from a range of therapy models, include Relational Psychotherapy, Attachment-informed, Compassion and polyvagal/somatic (body-focused) approaches.

 

Working with me can help you:

 

 

– Process your feelings so you don’t get so overwhelmed and anxious and instead stay more connected to yourself and others

– Overcome your challenges so you can live a more fulfilling life and bring your genuine self to the world

– Improve your relationships, set boundaries and stand up for yourself and what you need

– Better know, understand and accept yourself

– Recognise and use your existing strengths and to create new and more effective ways to navigate your life
