Are you having problems with sleep ? Or do you get a churning feeling in your stomach ? Do you have trouble with your appetite ? Or do you have intrusive thoughts that don't seem to make sense ? Have you noticed that you are less happy and/or productive ? These are amongst the symptoms of anxiety and depression.
Maybe you are struggling to find effective ways to help yourself and (like many of us) do not feel comfortable offloading to friends or family. Exploring these difficulties with a counsellor in confidence and in a reflective way can not only bring a sense of relief but also help you to make meaningful changes to your life and relationships.
It can be difficult taking that first step to get in touch and I will be taking this into account when we meet: I have been told that I am easy to talk to and research has shown that if you feel comfortable and safe with your counsellor that provides a foundation for positive change.
Accredited by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, I have over 15 years experience of short and long term counselling one to one and in groups.
I work with people experiencing issues including anxiety, depression, bereavement and loss, anger, low self- esteem, relationship difficulties, work related problems and trauma, the effects of abuse both adult and childhood.
I have a particular interest in the difficulties of being an adult son or daughter caring for elderly parents; the emotional and psychological challenges that this situation can bring about.
My early years as a counsellor were spent in London. In 2010 I relocated to the Thanet coast and since then I have been working in Canterbury and Broadstairs.
