Have you tried and tried to repair what you feel is broken but still feel stuck and don’t know how to move forward? Maybe you feel that everyone else seems to be coping so there must be something wrong with you? Are you feeling isolated, unable to share your feelings with those closest to you?
Sometimes we struggle with sadness, anxiety or self criticism, we can feel like life no longer holds any joy or charm for us. We feel frustrated with ourselves for not being ok - for not just “getting on with it”. We are often so understanding of other people's fallibility but have such high expectations of ourselves that we fall short.
I would like to get to know and your story. By gently looking at what hurts I can help you understand why you feel the way you feel. I work with kindness and compassion. You don’t have to worry that I will judge or be upset by what you tell me. We can look at strategies to help you make lasting changes and bring some peace and laughter back into your life. You’re not weird or broken and you are not alone.
If you feel I might be able to help and would like to know more you can contact me by text, phone or email. and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can. I know it can be daunting to take the first step and I offer a reduced rate for the first appointment so that we can meet and talk about what is troubling you.
