Are you struggling to be happy, dealing with feelings such as sadness, anxiety or low self-esteem? Maybe life has got on top of you and you don’t know how to move forward. The pandemic has affected people in different ways. Or perhaps there are issues from your past that won't go away, interfering with your present life. Do you feel stuck, stressed, depressed or not sure where to turn? We all go through difficult times, and it can sometimes be hard to make the first step to seek help. Maybe you’ve talked to friends or family, but they just don’t ‘get it’. Or perhaps there’s nobody you feel you can talk to about your concerns. Well, now might be the right time to take the first step and get in touch.
I offer a safe space to talk about things in more depth and understand them better. I will listen without judging and help you understand and resolve your difficulties in ways that work for you. I will encourage you and help you explore ways forward at your pace, so you can start to feel happier and stronger.
It’s important that you find the right counsellor for you. To help you make the right choice, I offer an initial 30-minute session for free. Contact me by phone or email to meet up without obligation.
(Please note that I only work with individuals over 21. I don't work with children or couples.)
