Lisa Haydon-Bennett MSc Registered MBACP
Do you ever feel like your problems are so big and overwhelming that no-one including yourself can ever deal with them? Or maybe on the other hand you have spent a lot of time thinking your worries are so small in comparison with others and that maybe you should just be getting on with stuff? Do you feel stuck and need someone to help you work out how to move forward? I am trained in exploring all aspects of your life to help you better understand the things that might be holding you back. Things like depression, anxiety, low self esteem, relationship issues, work related issues.
If I was to try and simply sum it up I would say I do it by listening to what you are (and aren’t) saying and guiding you through a process of self awareness getting to know yourself and others better.
Does all of that sound good or sound uncomfortable? Either is okay. If it feels uncomfortable then that means it’s important to you and that’s actually a good place to start. Often the hardest bit is starting.
