Support tailored to you
Does it sometimes feel that despite your best efforts, you still get stuck on repeat with the same old issues? Have you spent years or even decades not quite getting to the root of things, not quite being able to get where you want to be?
Perhaps life is mainly good but you have a specific goal/issue which you are stuck on.
I can help. I have an endless curiosity about how our minds work, why we sometimes struggle and how we can can create positive change. Leading to healthier ways of coping, achieving our goals, feeling satisfaction and joy in our lives and relationships.
We will explore together to find an approach that works uniquely for you. I will help you find a way through that supports your personal goals.
I have a specific personal and professional interest in ADHD and Autism.
Coaching to Grow
Coaching can foster growth in all aspects of life. As both a therapist and coach, I can help you find the hidden blockers that get in the way of your goals. By gaining a deeper understanding of yourself, we can create personalised, manageable goals and achieve sustainable, lasting change.
ADHD/Autism adults in late discovery
Many people start questioning their own neurodivergence in adult life. The conversation around neurodiversity is thankfully getting louder, bringing awareness to the wider population. Let me support you in discovering your fantastically, unique self, healing from past pain and finding new ways to move forwards in life. Different, but not less.
Therapy to Heal
Unresolved pain and issues such as anxiety, low confidence, stress, anger and sadness can hold us back from the things we really want in life. Therapy can help get to the root of problems, gaining new perspectives, finding ways to heal and new ways to cope with life’s challenges.
Free To Be You
The majority rule of neurotypical society has left so many struggling to ‘fit in’. I want to help you create a life where you feel free to be you – comfortable in your own skin, confident to live your life in the way that suits you best, to have the courage to walk your own path, not having to mask in order to be accepted, not having to hide for fear of criticism and being able to advocate for yourself in a world that doesn’t always understand.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
Alongside the deeper explorative work of therapy, CBT can provide meaningful change to how we live our lives. Healthier ways of thinking lead to a greater sense of wellbeing. Leaving you feeling free to lead the life you want and deserve.
ND Family Life/Relationships
Navigating neurodivergent family life can be hard at times. One person’s stim can be another person’s trigger. Feeling heard in your own experience can often be the difference between having the energy to cope or feeling drained and overwhelmed by the challenges. Therapy and coaching can provide a space for you to be heard and the strategies to help you cope.
