Hi, I’m Madeleine and I’m a qualified counsellor working online and on the phone with adults (18+) across the UK. I specialise in working with anxiety, stress and survivors of domestic abuse.
I’m a gender, sexuality and relationship diversity affirming counsellor. I’m also sex-positive, fat-positive and kink-aware.
Anxiety and Stress Counselling
Life can feel overwhelming at times. You may be feeling tense, anxious and stressed, unable to stop worrying and feeling that you can’t switch off. You might want to feel calmer, more relaxed, to sleep more easily, to untangle your thoughts and feel able to face your problems.
There are many different parts of our lives that can leave us feeling anxious, stressed and overwhelmed, including relationships, work, feelings about ourselves, past experiences and fear of the future.
I can help you to find ways to lessen this anxiety, to untangle your frantic thoughts and feelings and to see problematic parts of your life more clearly.
Domestic Abuse Counselling
I have worked as a counsellor with survivors of domestic abuse for several years, and I understand how difficult it can be to rebuild your life after leaving an abusive relationship. You may be dealing with many different emotions at once, such as anger, loss, grief, isolation or shame. You might be struggling with how to trust yourself and other people, to set boundaries and to make decisions. Maybe you feel like you don’t know who you are anymore.
I can support you to gently explore these emotions and understand what has happened to you, helping you to rebuild your confidence and self-worth, working at your own pace.
