Post-traumatic stress is known as a personal experience or event that contains real or potential demise or grave harm, or other threat to one’s integrity or the witnessing of this happening to another.

Relationship Issues

Countless relationships can reach a phase where either or both spouses are finding it tough to see a way to move forward. The relationship may no longer seem to be providing what the individual / couple is looking for, I can help resolve the conflict or see whether the couple can remain together.

Self Esteem

How one feels about themselves or the idea of how others feel towards about them, are noteworthy in how one matures their sense of self-esteem. If one feel good about them and see themselves as individuals of value, can have a huge influence on how we operate in the world.


Self harm is when an individual intentionally injures themselves, resulting in damage. There are numerous ways to self-harm, a common way is cutting. While it can be an appalling and terrifying subject, it is essentially a coping skill, whereby the individual self-harms to manage their unbearable condition.

Sex Related Issues

Sex Related Therapy aims to help sexual issues by explicitly exploring them, typically starting with a detailed valuation, leading on to response and then to an individually designed treatment agenda. Exploring the expressive and psychosomatic facets of the precise sexual issue with me is a vital part of therapy meetings, but it will also involve home practise drills.

Sexual Identity

Your sexual identity is recognised as your sexual orientation, sexual activity and your capability for sexual emotional state. It exemplifies more than sex and gender. It’s about how you feel as a person.

Sexual Orientation

While an individual’s sexual orientation may not be a source of anguish, people who identify as homosexual or lesbian etc. may find that the social shame of living as a minority is a source of strain or worry.


I am trained in sexuality therapy methods beyond the minimal amount of training about sexuality that is required.


My counselling can help you by giving you a secure and philosophical space to start to explore your life and what is contributing to your stress levels.


A trauma is an experience of harmful injury to the spirit caused by an upsetting event. It typically contains abuses of the morals and prospects of an individual and leads to a feeling of disconnect from one’s opinions and sentiments.

Work Related Issues

Individuals spend a lot of their lives at work, which therefore causes office problems to become a more prevalent source of strain. It’s difficult to have a workplace where everybody's roles, prospects, and characters work flawlessly without conflict.
