I know it can be daunting to start therapy: it can be hard to open up to someone new. However, I hope my warmth, empathy and acceptance of you will be felt when we meet.
I believe we are all individuals and our experiences are not the same. It’s this philosophy that led me to train as an integrative counsellor as there is no one-size-fits-all approach to therapy. As a qualified and professional counsellor, I will collaborate with you to work in a way that suits you best.
In a non-judgemental space, I will accompany you on your journey, as you explore your experiences, thoughts and emotions. I will listen, understand and gently challenge enabling you to reflect. I may highlight patterns and themes or offer interpretations, to enable you to see things from a different perspective or create new meaning. Developing self-awareness will enable you to have the confidence to start navigating your way in the world to live a better life.
In my work this has helped clients to: no longer feel frustrated in a relationship; overcome the anxiety which was holding them back and develop their self-esteem to no longer feel like an imposter.
Issues I can help you with include: depression, panic attacks, life transitions, anger, identity, sexuality, shame, domestic abuse, loss, trauma, suicidal thoughts and self-harm.
There are additional music and entertainment industry specific challenges that I can support you on to increase resilience and avoid burnout. This can include: sudden fame, performance anxiety, stress, rejection, online abuse, career or financial uncertainty, discrimination and body image.
