Many of us experience stress, anxiety, depression, lack of motivation, low self-esteem, feelings of sadness, phobias or struggles with recovery from addiction. Our thoughts can feel intense and confusing and it can seem difficult to know how to go about starting to sort them out.
I specialise in working with clients to help them overcome these issues and seeing them make progress with this is what gives me real satisfaction in doing my job.
I have over 400 hours counselling experience helping real people process and manage issues they experience relating to everyday life.
It can be challenging to reach out and seek help and I understand that. But once you have made that decision, progress can be made and challenging and difficult life situations can feel easier to manage. I hope to help you in the same way I've helped others.
