Clare Briggs MBACP
I would like to offer you a comfortable place where we can chat one to one, I will listen to what you have to say about what’s been on your mind, whether it’s anxiety, depression or you are just having trouble coping with life, we could work together to discover better ways of dealing with this.
Even if your thoughts and worries seem trivial to you, finding out why they are bothering you could make a huge difference to your life. You may be concerned that your child hood up bringing feels different to other people’s and is causing you to lose sleep and feel unhappy, this can impact on your work and everyday life.
Grief and loss of loved ones is also a factor in causing depression and anxiety and you may be feeling stuck and unable to move on. If you are in a relationship where you feel that you no one listens, your anger is out of control and it’s causing your relationship to break down, it can be a sign that there are deeper issues which I would be able to discuss with you.
Maybe work is making you feel depressed and unappreciated, this is also something that we could work through.
Whatever you are struggling with at the moment, I would like to help.
