Individuals: I aim to help you to:

  • Manage anxiety, stress and the frightening stress signal of panic attacks by looking at coping strategies and self-care tools
  • Explore how to, over time, lift yourself out of feeling low or depressed by changing unhelpful patterns of behaviour and self-defeating patterns of thinking
  • Understand why your relationship is going wrong and maybe alter thinking and behaviour to improve current and future relationships
  • Improve relationships by giving a safe space where you can understand what makes you tick and how you want to be with people
  • Grow in confidence and improve self-esteem by providing a therapeutic relationship which encourages personal growth
  • Find yourself when abuse or trauma has stolen your identity
  • Navigate through the bewildering and physical pain of loss and bereavement and learn how to re-build your life around the loss
  • Understand why a life event is affecting you so deeply, find coping strategies that support you through the dark times and, with new resilience, find a path towards greater control over your life

Thought of the Month

*I've had a lot of worries in my life, most of which have never happened.*
Mark Twain

Does this reflect how you live your life? There is a fine line between being prepared for all eventualities and wasting your time worrying about the future rather than living in, and enjoying, the present. It takes a lot of energy worrying about the future and if this is a life-long trait of yours, then it takes hard work to change the habit. But it can be done. The counselling process can give you a different perspective that frees you from negative thinking and once you start to think differently, it opens up a different way of living your life.
