About Me

IMG-7705-Facetune-10-01-2022-16-02-14_edited.jpg

Welcome.

I'm Natasha.

I have experience supporting a wide variety of issues including loss I worked for Cruse Bereavement services for 2 years.  Anxiety, depression, domestic abuse, and low self-esteem and family relationships.

I also work with adolescents in secondary schools with The Sid youth and in my private practice. I work with children struggling with issues including exam pressures, self-esteem, identity issues, self-harm, suicidal thoughts, and family breakdown. The work is very different from adults and I think they really compliment each other as I understand both ends of the spectrum. I often find with adolescents I need to be more creative but they often have far more insight into their mental health as they have grown up with works like anxiety and depression in their vocabulary in a way never did.

I am a person centred counsellor who believes that we are the experts in our own lives. We all have the answers we’re looking for, and sometimes we just need someone to help us to dig a bit deeper to find them. I want to help people to help themselves, and I know how powerful people can be with the right help. I believe very strongly that although change can definitely be painful but feel nothing really good in life comes without hard work and sacrifice.

 

I work with a wide range of clients but as a Mum of 2 I specialise in working with parents struggling from conception, pregnancy birth and beyond. Huge life changes are often the first time we realise how much we need to work on ourselves as we have another human to think about. I have supported Mum’s struggling with loss, birth trauma, fertility issues, pre & postnatal depression, and more.
