“Out of your vulnerabilities will come your strength” ~ Sigmund Freud
Life has a way of taking us down some pretty rough roads at times, and it can make us feel alone, anxious, angry, confused...all sorts of emotions, that when left can build and bring us down even further. It can be daunting to reach out, but that is where I can help you.
I am friendly, kind and warm. We can have a chat on the phone or by email first, to put you at ease, and discuss how I might be able to help you, and from there we will begin your journey together.
Whether you are experiencing anxiety, low mood, feelings of sadness, low self esteem or low confidence I can help you to take a look at what it is that is causing you to feel this way, and then together we can look at ways to improve these feelings in ways that will be the best for you. Therapy isn’t a ‘one size fits all’ approach, and so with that in mind I believe the greatest growth comes from a strong therapeutic relationship between counsellor and client.
