    How I can help you

    “Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass...
    it's about learning to dance in the rain.”

    Vivian Green

    Let's face it, sometimes life gets tough, and if you have found your way here, it's probably because you're feeling that you need some support to help you get through a storm of some kind... 

    Perhaps you're struggling with events that feel out of your control... maybe you're feeling angry, stuck, stressed out, worried, confused, low or on a roller-coaster of all those feelings that have become overwhelming... perhaps you're exhausted from feeling like you're wading through treacle every day or are just fed up of things being the way they are and not knowing how change it.

    Maybe you just need someone to listen and acknowledge you, your feelings and where your life is at right now.

    I am an experienced Counsellor offering videoing, email and instant messaging online. I am happy to work in a way that you feel comfortable with, including working with you anonymously through messaging. I work with people of all ages.
    I also offer Clinical Supervision for Counsellors and Psychotherapists, please contact me for details

    What to expect

    I'm an Integrative Counsellor, which means that I work with a range of different models and in a way that fits for you, rather than trying to fit you into one approach.  Our first session will be to find out a bit about you, what has brought you to counselling, and what your goals are.  We might agree to work together for a number of sessions, for example 8 or 12, but I am happy to work with you longer term too (or shorter if you have a specific issue that you would like to resolve quickly).

    It's not my job to make judgements about your life, your beliefs or choices (you probably do enough of that yourself already!) and hope you will feel able to talk with me about anything that is important to you no matter how big, small, scary or even weird you think it might be.  You are in control and I will never make you talk about anything you don't want to, although sometimes I might gently challenge you to think about things differently.

    About me

    I qualified as a Counsellor in 2007 and  I have been working online since 2015.  I experienced in working with relationships, families in crisis (including the impact of having a difficult childhood on adults and dealing with difficult teenagers), domestic & sexual abuse, trauma and trauma related disorders, drugs and alcohol misuse (particularly 'recreational' drug use), self-harm, suicidal ideation and risk-taking behaviours... and all the emotions that come with these issues.

    Counselling is a 2-way process and I learn from my clients as much as I hope they learn from working with me - The positivity and courage of the people I work with inspires me everyday and I consider it a true gift to share the journey, tears, struggles, lows and highs together with you.  

    In my personal life I try to approach life, work and all I do with a positive attitude, compassion and  a sense of humour when needed! I enjoy music and dancing, my garden (although I'm lacking in skills and patience) and baking (also lacking in skills and patience!).. I care deeply about many things, but I try not to take myself or life too seriously... and I try to apply some life-balance with things like yoga and healthy living, but I find that giving myself permission to enjoy eating cake works too :)
