About

Access Stress Support provides specialist coaching, counselling and support for adults experiencing personal or work-related stress, anxiety, depression, grief, life transition challenges or burnout, (including bullying) throughout life. It might just be a niggling feeling not letting you relax easily after work, or anxiety in the mornings or evenings. It might have escalated to things like poor sleep, difficulties concentrating, fatigue, headaches or other physical ailments, significant weight changes, digestive issues, or consistent anxiety or depression. The impacts can transition with you into another job or after retirement.
My aim is to support you to restore your self-confidence, connection with others, sense of self and hope. We’ll work together to help you regain a sense of empowerment and meaning in life that might have been lost or damaged by your work or other life experiences – be it extended stress, grief and loss, injury, bullying, burnout or retirement challenges.
My own lived experience showed me some clinicians were more concerned about their modus operandi than my needs or where I was at. I want you to feel confident my services are right for you, so I offer a complementary, first 30-minute consultation via my website. I provide in person, online and telephone appts. (or home visits-conditions apply).
