Wendy Capewell - Anxiety, Stress and Relationship issues
Anxiety and stress have hit an all-time high recently, and is it any wonder in today’s fast moving world.
People are faced with so many pressures from every angle, both in the work place as well as in personal lives.
People feel they are constantly being judged, leading them to feel anxious in their jobs. Worried you may face redundancy or be overlooked for promotion. You take on more and more work, scared to say no, in case you are seen as not performing up to scratch. As a result, your personal life is adversely affected. You lack confidence to speak out and your self-esteem is almost non-existent.
Or perhaps you find work place relationships difficult. A tricky boss whose behaviour at times can be bullying. Or perhaps a colleague with whom there is constant friction.
Maybe your personal life is causing problems. You find it hard to form good relationships, and don’t have the confidence to seek out more healthy friendships.
You find yourself constantly attracted to abusive partners and don’t know how to stop that cycle.
If you suffered abuse as a child it can have far reaching effects on your life and affect the ability to form healthy relationships now.
Romantic relationships are not all plain sailing either. After the honeymoon period is over things can change, constant bickering over seemingly nothing, feeling taken for granted. Financial worries, extended family concerns. Or even an ex making life difficult. All making you wonder whether you want to stay in the relationship.
These situations can have such negative affects on you. You don’t know where to turn for help and support, and if you admit you are struggling – even to yourself - you feel a failure. Leaving you feeling shamed that you can’t speak up or cope.
"I want to assure you that you are not alone, as so many clients come to me with issues just like those I have mentioned."
As well as having more than 14 years professional experience, I have gone through some tough experiences, including life threatening illness, divorce, being a single mum, redundancies, and plenty of career changes. This doesn’t mean I totally understand your feelings, as each of us experience things differently. It does mean I won't judge you, it also means I won't tell you what to do. I will offer a different perspective, which isn't coloured by my views, which can often help order your thoughts and give more clarity.
PROFESSIONAL EXPERTISE & QUALIFICATIONS
With more than 14 years of professional expertise and an Accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, I work within their Ethical Framework for Good Practice. I have an ongoing commitment to training and personal growth to provide the best service to clients.
WORKING WITH ME
I really understand how scary it can feel to make that first step, pick up the phone, send the email, and having made the appointment – to walk through the door and meet a complete stranger. So, I offer a 30 minute chat where you can get to know me, and ask any questions you may have.
All I would say is that if you don’t take that step, nothing will change. So why not take yor courage in both hands and do something about it.
I offer both daytime and evening appointments, either face to face or through Skype, so why not contact me for a FREE Discovery call to see if we are a good fit.
