Each of us is unique and no two people experience the same difficulty in exactly the same way. I offer counselling or psychotherapy for a wide range of personal and work related difficulties such as:
- Coping with a major life event such as bereavement, divorce or redundancy
- Relationship problems with couples, family, friends or in the workplace
- Facing transitions from one life stage to another
- Depression, feeling hopeless, stuck, isolated or withdrawn or perhaps just feeling low for no obvious reason.
- Dealing with unresolved emotional issues
- Abuse, whether it is physical, verbal, sexual, emotional or psychological
- Stress when you feel overloaded, the pressure and demands are just too much and you feel like you can no longer manage.
- Anxiety, persistently feeling worried, edgy, a sense of unease or apprehension, fretfulness or fear, probably disturbed sleep too and possibly Panic Attacks
- Low self esteem, feeling you aren’t ‘good enough’ or aren’t ‘acceptable’ or generally don’t like yourself or believe you are ‘unlikeable’
- Perhaps you are looking for help to move on from trauma, feeling troubled, or disturbed, suffering ongoing pain and distress after an incident or ordeal
- Or maybe you want to work on personal development, increasing your awareness of your self and others, expanding your understanding and increasing your choices
- Some people are uncomfortable or unhappy with their given gender label and would like to explore issues related to gender identity, gender variance or gender dysphoria
