Welcome

Counselling can be incredibly valuable in helping you to find ways to manage problems that are impacting on your life. It can support you through difficult times, help you to re-discover your inner resources, and give you a stronger sense of who you really are.

You may be feeling that life just seems really hard and everything feels like an effort. Perhaps you're feeling stressed or overwhelmed; you may be finding it hard to cope, or experiencing anxiety or depression. Counselling can help you to express and explore these feelings, and to gain greater insight into where they may be coming from. 

 

Maybe something has happened or changed in your life and you just don't know what to do next. Loss comes in lots of different forms, such as relationship breakdowns, bereavement, redundancies or a loss of the sense of who you are. Counselling can provide a supportive place through this, in order to come to terms with what has happened and to explore options for the future.

 

There can be lots of reasons to seek support in navigating the ups and downs, and pressures, of modern life. The counselling that I offer is all about providing a safe, non-judgemental and confidential space for you, so that you have a place to bring your feelings and problems and where you can be heard. Together we will explore your past experiences to better understand how these may be impacting your current patterns of behaviours. Exploring underlying issues which may be contributing to how you're feeling can help you to re-discover what makes you happy and what gives your life meaning.

There's no pressure to instantly know what you want to do. Taking that first step can feel daunting. Have a look around the website and get in touch when you feel ready.
