My Approach

"What is the bravest thing you've ever said?" asked the boy.

"Help," said the horse.

Anxiety stems from our "flight or

fight". It can affect your mental

health when you feel anxious

every day and can’t remember

when you last felt relaxed.

It’s important to understand what

is causing your anxiety or you

may want to look at ways to break

out of a cycle of negative thoughts that are making you anxious.

Together we can look at steps

to address these issues and

find tools which will help

you shift these feelings

and emotions which trigger

the anxiety in us as individuals.

Young Person

Even as adults, it can be scary to

ask for help, so consider how

daunting it can be for a child or

young person. If they have no one

to talk to or no one who

understands them, who can they

turn too?

Counselling gives them the

opportunity to talk about how they feel without the fear of judgement.

I offer a safe environment for

children to express their feelings

whether verbally or creatively, so

we can understand what may have

caused them to feel this way and

work on finding that safe and

secure place in themselves.


Depression affects people in

different ways, they range from

lasting feelings of unhappiness

and hopelessness, to losing interest in the things you used to enjoy and feeling very tearful.

First step is talking to someone

and realising that depression is

not a weakness.

Together, in a safe environment we can explore those feelings with compassion and kindness. As human beings it is important to feel listened to and

understood. Using different approaches suitable to each person we can work on finding ways of finding that inner strength and self love.



Traumatic events are usually very sudden, or so buried that we don't understand what we are actually feeling. This could be an accident, illnesses, disasters, assault, sexual, emotional or other events which are potentially traumatic. Such events can leave us feeling shocked, disorientated, and distressed.

As your therapist I will help you make sense of your experiences and we will work together to understand, accept and overcome this event in a way that feels most comfortable and safe for you.

There are moments in our life were we may feel lost or unfulfilled and we don't know why. We may be searching for a purpose or a meaning to our life. As an existential counsellor I encourage clients to ask themselves what they want, where the source of meaning lies for them.

My aim is to help clients expand self-awareness and increase potential choices, to become present which helps with our future or past anxieties and eventually find our true self.
