Emily Astbury (BABCP Accredited)
Psychotherapy is a great way to reduce the symptoms of many different issues, such as anxiety and depression. These can be debilitating for a person and this can effect their home-life, work-life, social-life, which in turn can make you feel worse. Altering the way that you think or react to certain events, can in turn alter the emotions that are a result of this.
You might not even know what is causing you to feel the way you do, and need some help and guidance with this. I can offer you a safe place to be able to talk confidentially with someone who understands what you are going through.
I offer face to face therapy, but I also offer online therapy if this is a preferred method.
