Chloe Edwards, MA (MBACP)
If you're feeling overwhelmed, stuck or confused by how you're feeling or acting then I can help.
It can seem impossible to find the right therapist - there are so many to choose from, but the most important thing to know is that the person who can help you is the one the feels right to you - one you can relate to, feel safe with, and who understands what you're going through.
Are you worried about how much you drink or how many drugs you take? We use these substances for fun - to alter our minds and escape real life. This is great until it's not. If you find yourself using substances to escape from having a bad day, or because you don't like to be alone with yourself then therapy can help you to find other ways to cope, so that you no longer have to rely on mind altering substances to help get you through the day, and can go back to using them for fun instead.
Are you unsure of who you are? Perhaps you've had a recent breakup, or have moved to a new city - these types of changes can often highlight to us something that's been going on for ages but that when we were within a nice familiar routine we were unaware of. Now it feels like a glaring hole in the landscape of you and you have no idea how to fill it. I can help you to work out what it is you need, and how to nurture yourself.
Do you lack self esteem but have no idea how to fix it? Self esteem is great but illusive! What we often don't realise is that every negative remark we make to ourself chips away at it - most of the time we don't even realise we're doing it. Therapy can help you to notice when you think negatively of yourself and to instead build compassion towards yourself - kindness really can kill a lot of what troubles you, but it take a lot to learn to be kind to yourself after so long no being.
Therapy also has a reputation of being hard work. That's not to say that it isn't, (you are investigating your own inner workings after all) but it doesn't have to be awful. I offer a creative approach to therapy as well as the more well known talking side of things so that we can work towards your goals in a way that suits you.
If any of this sound familiar then I can help you to feel better, and regain control of yourself and your life. If you want to know more then please get in touch, I'd be happy to talk through your specific needs and how I can help you to reach your goals.
