Hello, have you been thinking recently? It might be good to talk to someone other than family or friends. Some one you can just be you with, some one who isn't judgemental, just genuinely supportive and has empathy for the way you feel at the moment.
Feeling anxious or panicky ,worry about pretty much every thing, the simplest of tasks seem the hardest too do. Life makes you break out in a sweat, feel sick and want to run away.
"why do I feel this way, where's it coming from ?" may be your looking for a way to cope,counselling could be the way to moving forward.
Talking one to one could be all you need, as you explore your thoughts and feelings you may like to try other techniques that work along side person centred, Integrative counselling gives you tools and techniques to help find the best out come for you.
- Feeling controlled in an unhappy relationship.
- Suffered personal injury or loss that's changed the way you look and feel about yourself.

- Lost the most important person in your life.
I offer a warm, friendly and safe environment for you to explore all your unanswered questions, thoughts feelings and emotions.
I am a member of the BACP and work within the ethical frame work of being person centred, this means that you are in control of your journey. I am here to support you, whilst building a therapeutic relationship that's based on mutual trust.
I offer short or long term counselling depending on your own personal needs.
