BA Counsellor, Psychotherapist MBACP
Over the years my interest has grown both personally and professionally in neurodiversity and the impact it has on mental health. I work with many clients on the Autism Spectrum (ASD), Asperger’s, ADD, ADHD and Dyslexia.
Sometimes life becomes hard to navigate, old ways of being simply don’t serve us the way they have in the past. Traumatic events, often from childhood can have lasting effects that may result in addictive behaviours such as alcohol, drugs, sex, gambling, and food. To survive we often use these behaviours to numb our pain. Together we can start to explore healthier, more enriched ways of living.
I work to support women and their partners who are experiencing the impact of menopause. This subject has been misunderstood and often ignored. Many women don’t realise that the symptoms they are experiencing are due to perimenopause/menopause. It can be frightening and isolating resulting in anxiety, feelings of grief and loss and a time where emotional support can be beneficial.
I am passionate about talking therapy and how it can help us understand why we feel the way we do and why we often find ourselves feeling stuck. I offer an integrated blend of therapy, working collaboratively with you to explore the unique experiences that may have left you feeling hopeless and disempowered.
Working this way can help create value and meaning enabling change where change seems impossible. It allows you to understand yourself better and be able to communicate more effectively with those around you.
3 years working relationally in grief and loss as a counsellor at Phyliss Tuckwell Hospice in Farnham supporting bereaved families, carers and palliative patients.
