You are here because you may be experiencing difficulties in your life that stop you from enjoying life to the fullest. Taking some time for yourself can be hugely beneficial in looking at what is troubling you. It is popular these days to consult with a personal trainer at the gym to improve your physical health. How about taking charge of your emotional health by talking to your own personal counsellor and therapist?
Perhaps you feel empty, numb or maybe it's the opposite where you are struggling to make sense of some overwhelming emotions? If so, it can be a relief to talk to someone impartial, a professional counsellor especially trained to listen.
We know that rates of depression and stress are on the increase (Source -WHO) and sources of support can be minimal. Often the focus is on medication which, although may be useful for some, does not really address the underlying issues. Talking therapy can make a difference in being able to identify what is causing your emotional distress.
As your counsellor, I can offer you 1:1 therapy in a confidential space where you will be listened to without judgement so that we can explore your feelings together and think about a way forward that allows you to feel less burdened and overwhelmed with life.
Qualified psychodynamic counsellor experienced in providing counselling and talking therapy sessions to adults and couples in and around the Hook and Basingstoke areas. I have worked with a wide range of issues including anxiety, low self-worth and self-esteem, depression, bereavement and loss. Also relationship conflict within families, transitions to College/University etc, sexuality, self-harm and dealing with huge life changes e.g. serious health concerns, work issues, betrayals and divorce.
Alongside my private practice, I work in education with students facing tremendous anxiety with transitions to College/University and have particular experience of working with students on the autistic spectrum and those who struggle to find their way in life. I have worked for many years as a volunteer counsellor specialising in supporting adults in grief, trauma and complex family dynamics. I also have a special interest in early life trauma and how it can effect the body.
Part of my training and commitment to my own psychological growth has enabled me to engage in my own personal therapy for several years. This has enabled me to tolerate and experience the complex anxieties that therapy can evoke and the profound ways in which psychotherapy can help make sense of one’s own emotional world.
