We all have times when life can feel too much and our problems can just feel too big to deal with on our own. It can be difficult to talk about these things with those closest to us for fear of upsetting others or feeling judged or misunderstood. This is where talking with a counsellor can help and just having the space to explore things can make all the difference. Areas that counselling can help with are depression or low mood, stress, anxiety, bereavement and loss, relationship difficulties, trauma such as rape or abuse, eating disorders and many more.
I welcome a wide range of issues and work with individuals and couples. I can offer a professional yet comfortable space for difficulties to be worked through in a confidential, non-judgemental and respectful way. This may involve looking at unresolved issues from the past and how this is affecting you now or it may be coping with the stresses of managing life on a day to day basis. You may not even know why you feel like you do, you just know you want to do something about it and this is the first step to recovery.
As a counsellor I aim to offer a safe and confidential place for you to talk, be heard and be able to explore the different thoughts, feelings and emotions that might be coming up for you, whatever they might be. This can lead to greater understanding, insight and acceptance of what might be going on enabling you to continue with life in a more manageable way, whatever that may mean for you as an individual.
