Chloe Edwards, MA (MBACP (Accred))
If you're feeling overwhelmed, stuck or exhausted by life then I can help.
Choosing a therapist can feel really hard - you're looking for someone to be vulnerable with and that's not easy. I've been through it many times myself and can remember just how many unknowns there were - what would the process be like? Would the therapist judge me? Was therapy even the right thing to be doing? All I can say is that I have found therapy to be an incredible helpful experience, it wasn't nearly as scary as I imagined it would be, and getting past my worries to talk things through with someone was the right thing for me.
I specialise in working with addiction, anxiety and self esteem. It's easy to feel overwhelmed by the volume of responsibility the world throws at us. In order to cope with it we do anything we can, sometimes pushing those feelings away with substances, or risky behaviours, sometimes shrinking backwards trying to disappear and avoid being called on, and sometimes we can't escape at all and end up caught up in spirals of panic which seem to never end. All of these are ways we try to cope, but they don't work long term. Therapy can help you to find ways to cope without the negative side effects.
If you think you'd be interested in working with me or just wanted to start by hearing more about what that might be like, then please take a look at my website, or get in touch and I'd be happy to answer your questions, and talk to you about your specific concerns.
