Ella Hardisty MA, UKCP Psychotherapist and Supervisor
Ivy House Farm
Do you feel anxious, do you feel in a state of panic, are your relationships under stress, are you depressed? Has something in your life changed and you are struggling to adapt. Perhaps you feel that something needs to change and you want to work on that goal. It may be that you feel something in your life past or present is stopping you from being happy and reaching your full potential or that you have lost your way.
Whatever the issue I invite you to show me your world. I offer you a here and now confidential and non-judgemental therapeutic relationship where you can explore your issues and have a quiet space to understand yourself and others better. This is an opportunity seldom seen in our busy lives, a place and time where you can express feelings, identify problems, and improve relationships with your self and others. The most important being the relationship with self and being able to accept yourself for who you are and become who you were always meant to be.
I am a UKCP registered therapist and a member of BAPCA, offering psychotherapy for many issues including:-
- generalised anxiety, anxiety attacks, panic (is this affecting your happiness)?
- low self esteem, low self confidence (why does this keep happening, how to overcome this)?
- relationship issues (do the same problems keep happening)?
- anger management (is this getting in the way of your relationships at home and at work)?
- stress, stress at work (need to clear some space to organise your thoughts)?
- depression (short or long term)?
- bereavement (when is it time to move on and how do you do that)?
- couple counselling (talk to each other again)?
- family issues, divorce/separation (how best to cope)?
- bullying (what to do)?
Please see below for a more comprehensive list. I can offer appointments at Stonnall, Walsall near Lichfield (off the Chester Rd), this means that I am within easy travelling distance of Sutton Coldfield, Mere Green, Burntwood, Lichfield and other areas in Staffordshire and the West Midlands and only about 30 mins from Derby.
