Hello and Welcome
At times life can feel overwhelming, fragmented or confusing. Events or experiences may happen in our daily lives that are unexpected or we find very painful and difficult to recover from. Sometimes underlying issues such as trauma or low self worth can begin to surface and cause problems and we find it hard to cope. We can struggle with feelings such as despair, sadness 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 pressing ahead, concealing your feelings from others as much as possible but 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.
Counselling offers a confidential and non-judgemental space to help you explore and work through your difficulties so you can move forward and overcome issues you may feel are holding you back. My work has shown me that regardless of how troubled and isolated you may feel, how challenging your experience has been, or how uncertain your relationships have become – change really is possible.
Whatever brings you to counselling, we will work together creating a space for self-awareness, discovery, and change.
Individual counselling can provide the support you need to help you find your way forward and make lasting, positive changes in your life.
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.
I offer online services to make counselling more accessible in our rapidly changing world. We meet with via a private, confidential video conferencing platform from the comfort of your home.
The Rewind Technique has become internationally recognised as indispensable to treat traumatic memories and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). It is suitable for clients with PTSD, flashbacks, anxiety and unwanted or intrusive thoughts.
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. It is a journey that promotes a better way of understanding ourselves, others and our relationships in general. It enhances our self-awareness and by doing so, gives us greater freedom in our lives.
