Psychotherapy & Counselling.
People come into therapy or counselling for a multitude of reasons, but it is usually because they are confused and need help. Asking for help is a big step and can leave you feeling vulnerable and anxious. I provide a safe, empathic and sensitive environment where you can develop the trust that is essential in order for you to get to the reasons behind your situation. With a clearer understanding of your reality you can begin to make more informed choices.
Therapy can help address issues such as anxiety, depression, stress or abuse, as well as relationship, family and self-esteem problems.
Online Therapy is for people who cannot get to a face-to-face session due to time commitments, health conditions or geography, but who would benefit from seeing as well as hearing the therapist via Online Video.
Sessions are via a secure site called Doxy.
One-on-One Therapy sessions are normally held weekly.
This can be long or short term therapy depending on the issues involved.
Due to Coronavirus isolation guidelines,
One-on-One Therapy is not currently available.
Online Video sessions only.
Dan Reynolds, singer-songwriter-producer
"I’ve finally resolved a lot of these issues in my life… This has been the first time in ten years that I can say I have no depression. Sadness? Hell yeah—it’s included some of the saddest times in my life—but no depression."
Kid Cudi, rapper-singer-songwriter-producer-actor
"My anxiety and depression have ruled my life for as long as I can remember and I never leave the house because of it. I cant make new friends because of it. I don’t trust anyone because of it and Im tired of being held back in my life. I deserve to have peace. I deserve to be happy and smiling. Why not me?… Its time I fix me. Im nervous but ima get through this."
Mandy Moore, singer-songwriter-actor
"I’m a big proponent of therapy. It’s something that I find in my own life to be incredibly helpful ... during many different junctures of my life, it’s been a common through line. I feel like it’s most beneficial at times when I don’t think that I need it, like when there’s not a ton going on that feels stressful. I find that I get the most benefit out of it sometimes when I feel like I’m doing okay."
Selena Gomez, singer-songwriter-actor
"I wish more people would talk about therapy. We also need to feel allowed to fall apart."
Amanda Seyfried, actor-model-singer
"You don’t see the mental illness: It’s not a mass; it’s not a cyst. But it’s there. Why do you need to prove it? If you can treat it, you treat it. I had pretty bad health anxiety that came from the OCD and thought I had a tumor in my brain. I had an MRI, and the neurologist referred me to a psychiatrist. As I get older, the compulsive thoughts and fears have diminished a lot. Knowing that a lot of my fears are not reality-based really helps."
Cara Delevingne, model-actor-singer
"I had moments where I didn't want to carry on living. The guilt of feeling that way [depressed] and not being able to tell anyone because I shouldn't feel that way and I shouldn't feel bad."
"I'm constantly having a battle with myself. But you do have control over your body. You have to think of the worst case scenario and how that's not going to happen. You're not going to die. You can do this."
Lena Dunham, actor-writer-director-producer
"I have obsessive compulsive disorder and it started manifesting itself when I was three...I have only the vaguest memory of life before fear. [Exercise] helped my anxiety in ways I never dreamed possible."
Demi Lovato, singer-songwriter-actor
"If anything, I'm proud to be bipolar and speak about it. Bipolar is a mood disorder. I deal with mood swings, I deal with episodes of mania, and bipolar-depression phases as well. But I've used my voice to help others, and I feel proud that I've been able to do that."
Scarlett Moffatt, television personality-presenter
"Recently my anxiety has been really bad, especially after seeing those acid attacks on the news. I’d cry for two hours in the morning, because I had it in my head that people would see the camera and that would make me a target. In my head I was going to be an acid attack victim. It sounds bizarre, because the chances of that happening are so small, but that’s how my brain works."
Kendall Jenner, model-media personality
"I have such debilitating anxiety because of everything going on that I literally wake up in the middle of the night with full-on panic attacks,. Where do I even start? Everything is so horrible, it's hard to name one thing. I just think that the world needs so much love. ... You go online and you see everyone saying the worst things to each other, and it's hard to stay positive. It's hard not to get eaten alive by all the negativity."
Michael Phelps, swimmer-most successful and most decorated Olympian of all time
"After every Olympics I think I fell into a major state of depression, and after 2012 that was probably the hardest fall for me. I didn't want to be in the sport anymore...a year and a half, two years after that...I didn't want to be alive anymore. I think people actually finally understand it's real. People are talking about it and I think this is the only way that it can change. I am extremely thankful that I did not take my life."
Cara Delevingne, model-actor-singer
"I think I pushed myself so far, I got to the point where I had a bit of a mental breakdown. I was completely suicidal, didn’t want to live anymore. I thought that I was completely alone...I wanted the world to swallow me up, and nothing seemed better to me than death. After treatment that included therapy, I kind of clawed my way back to some sort of rational thought."
Halle Berry, actor
"My sense of worth was so low. I was sitting in my car, and I knew the gas was coming when I had an image of my mother finding me…"
Katy Perry, singer-songwriter
"I have had bouts of situational depression and my heart was broken last year because, unknowingly, I put so much validity in the reaction of the public, and the public didn’t react in the way I had expected to…which broke my heart."
Michelle Williams, singer
"I was suicidal. I’ve been suffering since the age of between 13 and 15. At that age I didn't know what to call it...I want to normalise this discussion."
JK Rowling, author
"What’s to be ashamed of? I went through a really rough time, and I am quite proud that I got out of that."
John Green, author
"Yes. I am mentally ill. I’m not embarrassed about it. And I have written my best work not when flirting with the brink, but when treating my chronic health problem with consistency and care."
Jared Padalecki, actor
"There’s no shame in dealing with these things. There’s no shame in having to fight everyday."
Selena Gomez, singer-songwriter-actor
"If you are broken, you do not have to stay broken."
Kerry Washington, actor
"I go to the dentist. So why wouldn't I go to a shrink?"
Sir Edmund Hilary, explorer
"It is not the mountain we conquer, but ourselves..."
Noam Schpancer, author-professor of psychology

Rachel Hollis, author
"Were it not for my therapist, I never would have understood the connection between my childhood insecurities and my adult accomplishments."
Mary Lambert, singer-songwriter-poet
"Everybody is going through something, everybody has had something that they have had to overcome."
Jennae Cecelia, poet
"You may think you are caged in with little room for growth, but to every lock there is a key."
