One of the areas I have a particular experience of working with is anxiety. If you've experienced anxiety for most of your life or if you've started experiencing anxiety because of work pressures, relationship issues/break ups or significant changes in your life such as illness or bereavement we can work together to help alleviate your anxiety.
Anxiety is more common than you think, it's estimated that over 3 million people in the UK alone experience an anxiety disorder at some time in their life.
Maybe you find it hard to speak in public, go to social events, visit the shops or get out of the house to name but a few things that anxiety can affect.
Don't feel that things can't change, by working together you can change how you feel.
Anxiety is hugely impactful in both physical and emotional terms and living with it not only affects ourselves but those around us. A certain level of anxiety is natural, in fact it's a good thing it keeps us aware of possible causes of concern. However when anxiety starts to detrimentally impact our lives then it's time to look at where it comes from, to understand it is to learn to start managing it differently. The way I work is to look at where the anxiety comes from for you, what triggers it and also useful coping techniques.
I believe we're all unique and we all have different experiences growing up and in our adult lives, there is no 'normal'. By exploring how you feel and your experiences you can begin to understand what your life means to you and this encourages self-acceptance, self-assurance and self-confidence.
I also have extensive experience and interest in working with carers, patients and family members in relation to life limiting illness, chronic illness and bereavement counselling gained in my role as a volunteer counsellor at the Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice.
I also offer early morning appointments and evening appointments subject to availability. I also work online on Skype and Zoom.
