Kathy Hegarty MBACP (Accred.), UKCP
There are times in our lives when we can become overwhelmed by events or our feelings inside, and need some support.
Being listened to and having a space to explore how you feel can help to make sense of yourself. You may feel that you are experiencing depression or anxiety and would like to work through this phase in your life. Or you may find it increasingly difficult to maintain relationships with others that feel meaningful to you.
I work in a psychodynamic way which addresses the conflicts that we sometimes feel inside and which can become quite difficult to deal with on our own. I also sometimes use a solution focussed approach that deals with a specific issue being flexible to meet your needs. I can, in addition, offer some CBT to provide some practical approaches to help overcome some experiences especially with anxiety and panic attacks.
In the initial session we can talk about what it is that you would want from counselling and how I might be able to give the support you are looking for.
