How can counselling help?
I work with a range of issues: loneliness and depression, anxiety and stress, self-harm, bereavement, gender and sexual identity issues, anger, trauma, low self-esteem or lack of confidence.
Yet sometimes our sense that something is not right cannot be so neatly labelled. Perhaps you just feel out of control, find it difficult to cope with life or are questioning its very meaning. Maybe you struggle with personal relationships or feel different but don’t know how to deal with it. The way we feel is often very hard to explain and may be caused by a combination of things happening in our life now and from our past experiences.
We will work together to identify what it is you feel is causing you pain or holding you back, and attempt to reduce its effect on your life. My aim is to create a safe environment where you can think freely, without judgement, and feel encouraged to talk about whatever comes to mind. In this way, the expectation is that we will discover your own solutions and begin the process of making the changes you need to live a more enjoyable, fulfilled and rewarding life.
