Sarah Nicholson MBACP counsellor and psychotherapist
Have you had enough of struggling through life? Not wanting to burden loved ones with your problems? If so then maybe its time to talk to someone who can help.
All of us, at times, can find life a bit tough. Whether its events that we are struggling with in the here and now or past issues that are still holding us back.
Historically, society has led us to believe that a 'stiff upper lip' approach is the best way to deal with any such problems. Luckily attitudes are changing and whilst it is widely reported that mental health issues are on the rise, also recognised is the importance of dealing with it, not ignoring it.
Having the space to talk through your problems confidentially with an understanding, nonjudgmental and empathic professional can prove invaluable.
Whether you are struggling with - anxiety, depression, loss, grief, anger, abuse, low self esteem, relationship problems, OCD, PTSD, work issues or find that you are just feeling "stuck" in life and need help to decide which road to take. Having a safe haven where you can explore the past and,or the future can make all the difference to your quality of life.
