Phil Haigh - BSC, Registered MBACP
If you're caught up in constant worry or unable to express how you feel, it’s easy to get stuck beating yourself up and feeling powerless to change things.
Maybe you're feeling overwhelmed with all that's going on. If you're:
- Worried about relationships and why they feel so difficult to manage
- Unsure if you'll ever feel happy with yourself
- Scared of your feelings and what they might mean
- Frustrated with how your life has worked out so far
- Unable to understand why you keep experiencing the same problems in relationships
If worrying all the time is affecting your ability to live your life, then its time to get some support in Counselling.
As your therapist, I will work with you to find your best way forward. Together, we'll explore how to get to a place where your worry and stress no longer run your life or your relationships.
As someone who has previously struggled with stress, anxiety and panic attacks. I understand just how exhausting life can feel and how it can affect important relationships when you're struggling.
However, years of experience and training have proven to me that managing anxiety and stress is possible.
There are many benefits to counselling.
Counselling can successfully help you with constant worry and anxiety. It can help you:
- be more flexible, and spontaneous in your response to life
- feel more comfortable and secure in your relationships
- restore your sense of purpose, gaining a better understanding of your feelings and actions
- rediscover your enthusiasm for social situations instead of avoiding them
Counselling can help you feel at ease. Let's discover how I can help.
If you’ve not seen a counsellor before, you may prefer to find out more through a brief telephone conversation, where we can establish together if you feel counselling is right for you.
There is no expectation or commitment to go any further if you don't feel ready.
If you feel this would be better for you, please leave a message or drop me an email with a good time for me to call you back and we can take it from there.
What will the first session involve? It will give you a chance to share what’s been going on for you, I can answer any questions you might have and i'll give you a sense of how I can help.
