Please do get in contact for an initial chat to see if counselling with me is something you would like to try
This maybe a difficult time for you, and I will be available to support you throughout to help you cope and find ways through.
We can feel overwhelmed sometimes about the amount of responsibility that the world expects from us, sometimes we can feel that its hard to cope.
Maybe you feel that you shouldn't seek out help, or that others have bigger problems going on and that you should be able to cope.
Therapy gives you the space and time to see things in a different way, allowing you to find how you feel about things so that you can either strengthen or change certain behaviours giving you clarity of thought and a more peaceful way of thinking and consequently a happier way of living.
We will work together using different types of therapy that fit with you. To this end it is imperative that we work well together as the best work is done in a situation when honesty and trust can be present and a good rapport can be at the centre of this.
Please do contact me for an initial chat to see if I can help, and that I am someone you wish to work with. Like anything in life, it's a good idea to talk to several counsellors to see which one is right for you.
I specialise in anxiety and depression, although I can work with many other issues these are my preferred areas to work within.
