Hello and Welcome 

At times life can be filled with challenges, disappointments and sadness. Events or experiences may happen in our daily lives that are unexpected or we find very painful and difficult to recover from. We can struggle with feelings such as despair, distress and hopelessness and it can seem too much to deal with alone. Perhaps you are grieving, or suffering as a result of a trauma in your life and realise you aren’t coping. Or you might feel stuck in a relationship, struggling to manage negative behaviours or thought patterns and find yourself increasingly anxious,  panicked, or depressed. Maybe life looks fine on the surface, but you feel you've lost your sense of enthusiasm, joy and pleasure in life. You may keep going, but know things are getting worse and find yourself at a place where you wonder if there is a way forward. 

Everyone comes to counselling for his or her own reasons: we all have our own story and our own unique life experiences. I offer a confidential and non-judgemental space to support you when life is at its most difficult and to help you achieve lasting positive change in your life.

Whatever brings you to counselling, we will work together creating a space to work through your difficulties so you can move forward and recognise the things that you may feel are holding you back. In my experience, change really is possible.

Services

Couples counselling

I welcome all types of partnerships and work with couples who seek therapy to resolve a specific problem in their relationship, or to deepen their connection with one another. Talking openly about relationship difficulties in a supportive, safe and neutral space gives both partners the opportunity to be heard equally without judgement or taking sides. 

Individual counselling

Individual counselling can provide the support you need to help you find your way forward and make lasting, positive changes in your life. Whatever brings you to seek support, my aim is to meet you where you are and help you get to where you want to be. We all have within us, the capacity to create long-lasting change, to live bravely in our own skin and live the lives we want.

Online counselling

Online counselling gives you the opportunity to access counselling support at a time and in a place convenient to you without needing to travel to a specific location. This means sessions are not limited by location, time zones, or travel restrictions. I work by a secure video call which you access through your computer, tablet, mobile device, or by a telephone call. Research shows that these methods of counselling are just as effective as face to face counselling. I work with both individuals and couples, irrespective of your location and provide online counselling to clients living in the UK and throughout the world.

About me

I am an Integrative Psychotherapeutic Counsellor, and accredited with UKCP (UK Council for Psychotherapy) and a registered member with BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy). My practice is located in Spalding, Lincolnshire and I work in-person, or online via video call. 

 

I draw on a wide range of modalities in order to create the right therapeutic approach for each individual. Together, we will explore your present concerns with sensitivity and curiosity, whilst considering influences from your past, and your hopes for your future.

Beginning counselling means different things to different people, but it is often an action of courage, hope and determination. 

I encourage you to browse this site and read more about me and how I work as its really important to find the right therapist for you to work with, who you feel comfortable with and can help you to achieve change.

When we own our stories, we get to write a brave new ending ”
