Mary Dempsey MBACP
People come to counselling for many reasons; if anxiety and constant pressure are your everyday experience, life can feel impossible. Feelings of generalised anxiety afflict many people in the modern world and you may be wondering if it's just you who finds it so hard to cope. Or you may find yourself struggling against recurring depression; stuck in a repeating pattern where you can see no way out.
Together we can make sense of these difficult feelings or family issues, loss, isolation, low self esteem and life transitions which are some of the many challenges which threaten your mental wellbeing. I will help you to find a different way of looking at things and gain a clearer understanding of yourself and your relationship with others.
You can develop valuable insight, recognise your strengths and find a clearer direction in your life. I provide a confidential space where you will feel safe and supported to explore your inner world.
