Meadows Counselling-Jenny Hodsdon BSc (Hons) Psychology, MBACP
Hi I'm Jenny. Have you been feeling really anxious or panicky? Do you often feel so overwhelmed with all your problems that you find it hard to function?
Anxiety can make it hard to focus so that just watching your favourite TV series is difficult. You may find the everyday things you used to do without thinking have become hard or scary eg driving, meeting people. Decisions such as just choosing a shampoo becomes a big thing. So If this sounds familiar then counselling can help you to learn why you feel this way and more importantly what to do about it. Wouldn't it be great to get back some control in your life and get back that feeling of ease?
Perhaps you have been feeling really low lately? Maybe you lost something-it could be your job, your health, a relationship or someone who meant a lot to you. The days may seem to drag, you maybe don't enjoy very much so you tend to comfort yourself with food or shopping. I believe that life doesn't have to be this way for you and that change is possible. Counselling can help you find where to start making that change and help you to feel more positive about your future.
If any of the feelings I have mentioned above have made you think 'that's definitely me' then why not take the first step towards feeling better and make that call to me today? I have counselled people just like you for similar reasons over the years so you are assured that I will understand.
Email or phone me and if I'm not available (I may be in a session & can't answer) just leave a message (only I will hear it and no-one else) & I'll get back to you.
Your first visit costs £25 and sessions will be £40 after that.
