Welcome. If you’ve found my website, it’s probably because you feel you might need some help in addressing difficulties or challenges in your life.

Perhaps you are struggling with grief for someone – or something – you’ve lost, and you’re feeling impatient with yourself that you’re finding it difficult to move on. You may be going through some big changes in your life – or changes that you think are small, but feel big. Or you’re dealing with thoughts or feelings that you just don’t feel able to share with people close to you, because you feel you have to look as if you’re coping.

Maybe you don’t even know what it is that’s wrong – but you know you aren’t happy, or are unsettled, at the moment and want to do something about it.

I work with people who feel under pressure – perhaps stressed, anxious, depressed, tense – who are exhausted, but experience shame or guilt when they think about prioritising their own wants and needs. If you’re ready to take the first steps toward learning to love yourself (or maybe even to like yourself a little bit better), I can help you

find ways of listening to your inner child
