If you are here, then you are possibly considering accessing counselling. Whether it is your first time or you have visited therapists previously, it can be a daunting prospect. However, you have taken the first step & you are now at the beginning of your journey to potentially look to understand & improve how you feel & your overall wellbeing. 

Working integratively, means that I tailor the therapy & the work that I do to suit & meet your individual needs. As an Integrative therapist, I can draw on various counselling approaches such as CBT, Psychodynamic, Person Centred, DBT, ACT, Gestalt, to name but a few. This approach to counselling gives us the flexibility within the work to adapt throughout the course of therapy to ensure you receive the very best service possible. 

As your counsellor, my aim is to support you with any problems that you feel you need to overcome & to work alongside you on your own self discovery. Below are some examples of the types of issues that I can assist clients with, although this is not an exhaustive or complete list.

Couples Counselling

There may become a time in your relationship where you feel you've reached a stalemate situation. Couples counselling can help by providing a safe & impartial environment to open up & improve communication within the relationship & to potentially find resolutions to ongoing issues. 

Grief and Loss

Grief & loss may come in many different forms; death of a loved one, ending of a relationship, loss of employment, children leaving home, & all of which may cause emotional distress. In facing such times, you may feel the need for some support to realign & adjust after such changes have taken place. 

Addictions & Self-harming behaviours

Addictions and self-harming behaviours may come in many different forms, from the obvious of smoking, drinking, gambling etc, to issues with food or self harming. If these issues become out of control & impact on your life & possibly loved ones around you, then it may be time to see if talking therapy might help.

Low Confidence & Self-esteem issues 

Many people at some point in their lives experience low self esteem or a lack of confidence. If you are unable to overcome this then it may impact on relationships, work, your mood & behaviour.  Counselling may help you to consider the root of these issues to enable you to move past it & reach full potential.


Abuse comes in many forms. Commonly known are physical, emotional & sexual abuse, & in relationships, domestic abuse. The effects of this can be traumatic and individuals often need support & a safe space to process these experiences. 

Anxiety and Panic Attacks

Anxiety is a natural feeling that alerts us to potential dangers. However, this can sometimes become irrational & feel out of our control, possibly even leading to panic attacks. This can affect our day to day life & you may feel you need support to correct these irrational thoughts.

Anger Issues

Anger issues can arise at times in life when either external or internal factors can lead to a bubbling over of these emotions & they may become out of control. Therapy can help by processing these feelings & finding a way to cope in form of anger management.

Animal Bereavement 

For many people, the loss of a beloved pet can have an extremely big impact, the same as a loss of a human loved one. In the same way that therapy can help with the loss of a loved one & the grief process that you will work through, the same can be said for when you are grieving the loss of a pet. 

Loneliness & Isolation

2020 introduced many people to experience how it feels to be isolated & lonely. Unfortunately, for some, this is a part of life, even before covid introduced us to it. Feeling this way can leave us very alone with our emotions & for some therapy offers the chance to share these in a warm, safe & trusting environment.

Stress & Depression 

High stress levels can have a damaging effect on our health & wellbeing.  It can also lead to feelings of depression if stress becomes overwhelming. Therapy can help individuals to find ways to cope with stress in a more effective and less damaging way.
