“Visiting my website is the first courageous step towards seeking help.”
A very warm welcome
Visiting my website tells me you are taking the first courageous step towards asking for and receiving help.
To do so is not always easy, but making the decision to seek therapy is one that can lead to a new way of living with more joy, clarity and positivity.
Sometimes when life is just not working out the way you’d hoped, you might find yourself in need of a little extra support. Life is a complex and often baffling experience, especially now, as many of us struggle to make sense of the uncertainty, changes and fears triggered by living in a world transformed by COVID-19.
I offer you a warm, friendly, welcoming space where we can work through your concerns together. I have a particular interest in women's issues from young women finding their way in the world, juggling career choices, family and relationships to maturing women struggling to realign during that unsettling period of adapting to changes such as children leaving the nest. Changing career status, relationships breaking down, baffling hormonal menopausal issues or feelings of loss and bereavement can affect us deeply, leaving us with a sense that life and happiness beyond feels uncertain and insecure.
As well as working with clients on an individual basis, I also work as a couple therapist offering couple therapy to facilitate a deeper understanding of the conflicts in your relationship, ways to improve communication, encourage intimacy and honesty between you so that you can safely share your concerns, thoughts, hopes, feelings and fears with each other.
I can help you make sense of what’s going on between you. You don’t need to live with conflict, anger, resentment and disappointment. We can deepen your connection by working on ways of communicating so that you can truly hear what each other is saying without fear of vulnerability. If the same conflicts keep repeating themselves, we can look at ways to break away from old, unhelpful patterns of relating by gaining insight into how our past experiences and needs impact on our current romantic relationships. We can identify the 'green flag' strengths in your relationship and work at rekindling what drew you to each other initially. Perhaps you are grappling with how to recover from an affair, have fallen out of love or wondering whether there’s someone out there who would be a more meaningful partner. Sometimes couples want to explore whether a relationship can be saved; is worth saving. If you can’t find a way back to your relationship, I can help you with separating gracefully, with integrity and without further hurt, despair and blame.
I can help you develop and nurture a deeper capacity for resilience and confidence, empowering you to face life’s painful and difficult challenges.
I will listen to you with kindness and compassion, using an approach uniquely tailored to you. We’ll focus on changing what can be changed and learn to live and grow around those that cannot be.
Together, we’ll find the path to a happier, healthier life.
