About me

  • Anxiety & Depression - In Northern Ireland 1 in 5 of us will face a mental health problem sometime in our lives.
  • Low Self Esteem - most children suffer alone with a sense of worthlessness. Many become adults with the same loneliness and sense of defeat
  • Stress - one of the biggest problems causing absenteeism from school or lost days off work.
  • Addiction - whether with alcohol, drugs, food or gambling lives fall apart and families hurt.
  • Grief - Feeling alone or not understood after the loss of someone.
  • Life Transitions - often the most difficult part of life is fitting in after a significant move or change.
  • Trauma Related Issues - can result in the replay of unwanted horrible images, fear, isolation and harm.
  • Couples Counselling- every year more marriages have such difficulties they end in separation or divorce.
  • Anger Management - this is not a problem with being angry.  Everyone has the right to be angry.  It is more how you express anger and control it rather than it controlling you.
