Are feelings of anxiety bringing you down? Maybe you're feeling stressed and low and don't feel good about yourself. Does it seem like other people have got their lives sorted out but you haven't? Have you lost someone close and your life feels empty? Do you feel you have lost your way in life?
I have the expertise, as a therapist, to help you to try and bring some understanding for yourself as to what is going on.
Sometimes in life we need a little help. Counselling can be just what we need to get back some balance in our lives. Being able to talk things through, in confidence, with a supportive, non-judgemental therapist can bring relief from our worries. It may also help us to embrace life in more creative ways.
Difficulties and stress in the present may have stemmed from early life experiences. Understanding this can help towards changing how we view life and relationships; especially in connection to recurring patterns of behaviour. Counselling explores past and present feelings and the links between past and current relationships.
Therapy is helpful for a wide range of issues including: low self esteem, stress, anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, work related issues and bereavement.
