I work with people who are anxious or depressed or who feel they simply aren't coping with life as well as they might. Some people come because their confidence has been knocked or they have low self esteem.
Sometimes this is about past or present relationships, family, work - or it can be about feeling overwhelmed.
Whatever the cause, Counselling can help and is often an alternative to medication.
Counselling provides a safe, confidential space which allows the therapist and the client to explore problems and difficulties. It's a place to talk about whatever is worrying you; to say out loud those things that have been going around in your head.
In the course of the counselling sessions, I can offer strategies and support to enable you to manage your symptoms and to become more resilient. I encourage my clients to be curious about how they arrived at where they are now. Once the light has been switched on, it's easier to understand things and recovery or change can begin.
Please don't hesitate to get in touch if you think I might be able to help.
