Life can be stressful or difficult at certain times in our lives. sometimes our problems at home or work can build up and begin to affect our health and our capacity to do the things we normally do and enjoy. This can lead to a feeling of being stuck or overwhelmed with life.
Being heard and acknowledged as a person for who they are, there and then is a very healing process in its self. Having someone there to listen and validate our experiances of life with a non judgemental ear can help untangle painful feelings and thoughts that keep us stuck . This feeling of stuckness can affect our relationships and can sometimes leave us feeling confused and baffled.
Having someone to go to on a weekly basis can be of real value and help to anybody who is at a point in their life where perhaps things are not making sense or they are struggling with overwhelming circumstances in their lives. This could be for example, anxiety, depression,addictions, relationship problems or trauma.
Through my training I aim to offer a safe and confidential space to allow this process to begin. The work will allow you to discover new insights about yourself and with this knowledge you are able to change the old into something more fitting for you, enabling you to have a more fulfilling life.
I believe contact within the therapeutic relationship is key to the healing process and through this contact the peeling back of the layers can begin. I am here to assit that process with empathy , acceptance and a willingness to be involved.
I have worked with many kinds of presenting problems such as anxiety(including generalised anxiety disorder), depression,work related problems, abuse and addiction.
