good for you
Get past your past
I believe that asking kind and generous questions of our own heart and opening a dialogue with those hurt younger parts of ourselves is a great start! From there hopefully, we can find an accepting adult self to take care of those parts when they show up in the present.
To free us from the expectations of others, to give us back to ourselves – there lies the great, singular power of self-respect.
Sometimes we sense something needs to change in our lives.
Sometimes we’re not sure what it is or how to find help and make it better. Changing seems difficult and we feel stuck.
How counselling can help?
I believe therapy works because someone is there for you without judgement. As a counselor I am here to collaborate with you to explore your hopes and fears.
My job is to help you make sense of what’s going on for you and between us find a way forward for you to embody the true you. Maybe our so-called imperfections and differences describe our uniqueness and can be the pathway toward being who we really are?
Here are some difficulties for which I have helped my clients:
Couples and relationships – for partnership difficulties and/or difficulty coping with a break up, affairs or separation.
Trauma and surviving abuse – physical and emotional.
Sexual difficulties – for both individuals and couples.
Worry and stress – maybe in relationships at home or at work.
Anger – resentment, jealousy.
Dependencies – on alcohol, drugs, sex, gambling.
Self acceptance – feeling inadequate, low self confidence.
Grief, loss and bereavement – Many of these issues can often be resolved within a few months depending upon the focus of the difficulty.
If you feel desperate now you should see your GP as soon as possible and you can call the Samaritans 24 hours.

Before therapy with Drew I had never heard of EMDR, but when he described it, and said it could be helpful for getting over childhood traumas and emotional neglect, I decided to try it. I found it almost miraculously effective even from the first session - somehow the traumas I experienced in childhood lost their power to cause me anxiety in the present. Old memories and flashbacks faded away, and I became able to put the past into a new and more realistic perspective. It was such an amazingly powerful process to go through.
Thank you for everything Drew you will always be very special to me. I’m especially grateful to have your encouragement and support in my current journey – without you it may not be happening
Finally we wanted to thank you for all that you did for us at what was a very difficult time in our relationship. The support and advice that you provided to us was invaluable and we will always be immensely grateful for your help.
I was thinking about life now and how I accept every single bit of it’s beauty and horror equally these days…..and then remembered how much you helped me. So I thought to my self: “tell him!” Just in case you ever wonder (like we all do) if you were any good! ☺ You were so good. So there.
