It can be really hard asking for help - I know I try to avoid it sometimes. Perhaps you’re used to prioritising others and you end up forgetting about your own needs. Perhaps you want to be able to do it all on your own and berate yourself if you fall short. But I want you to know that I see you hiding behind those smiles and I hear you in your silence.
You may have felt able to ask for help before, or this may be the first time you are taking this brave step. Perhaps you’re seeking therapy to explore long-term issues, and the timing now feels about right. You might feel unsure about how to move forward, how you’re able (or not) to care for yourself. Or perhaps you’re questioning if you need to change things within your relationships.
A lot of my clients have built their lives on putting other people’s needs and feelings at the centre of their lives, meaning it can be hard to ask for what they want themselves. I know it can be difficult to focus less on others and more on ourselves, and one can doubt if they will remain authentic. But it is possible to change the patterns of how we relate to others and to ourselves. Perhaps you weren’t taught that you are important and you matter as much as others - but you can learn.
I’ve always had an interest in people and their stories. I enjoy hearing about people’s upbringings and helping them think about how they were parented has shaped who they are today and how they relate to others. I practice using an Integrative approach, which means I integrate various tools from different approaches to therapy. These are Person-Centred, Compassion-Focused and creative including things like visualisation work and dramatherapy.
I qualified with a Post-Graduate Diploma in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy from the University of Roehampton, and also hold a BA(Hons) and MA. Before I started my private therapy practice, I began my clinical work at a charity supporting women with mental health difficulties, and in a further education college offering counselling to students.
My clients tell me that they feel safe, held and learn to trust me deeply. They say I am patient but also perceptive, and gently challenge them when it feels appropriate. I’d welcome the opportunity to explore whether working together feels good for you. If you’re not sure where or how to begin, please contact me via the enquiry form on my website, and I look forward to connecting with you. Thank you for being here.
