In these uncertain times we are faced with challenges that reverberate into every aspect of our being-in-the-world. We must unite with a community spirit that intentionally cares for the ‘greater good’ in the midst of much unchartered territory. But to support one-another, ourselves, and the planet in sustainable ways, we must also attend to our inner lives; nurturing every internal resource of strength and wisdom we possess in helpful ways, with self-compassion. Counselling can help.

It's 2022, which means that we're only getting older and we're either moving closer to the life we want or we're feeling stuck, confused, and a little anxious about everything right now. If you want to feel more in control of your life, cultivate the relationships you really want & hustle a career that fulfils you, then we should talk sometime. If you're new to this or have tried therapy before, here's some truth to chew over: therapy should feel like a cross between talking to your best mate who totally gets you and your high-school coach who kept challenging you for more because they saw your potential.

My counselling approach is person-centred and strength-based. You are invited to speak openly, without being judged or being told what to do. My counselling creates a sounding board for things you might want to talk about and provides a space to explore what you might like to do differently, achieve, or just understand better.

We often reach a point in life where it’s important to move on from the old and embrace the new. This may feel challenging and overwhelming in the short term, but it can also be an incredibly fulfilling and enriching experience in the long term. As a counsellor, my priority is to create a safe and therapeutic space where you can be heard without judgement and met with respect and empathy. To me, understanding trauma and resilience is highly important: what trauma means and how it can affect us is an important step to self-discovery. And what makes up your resilience? Learning again, but this time with more meaning and motivation.

I can understand that for many taking those first steps to seek professional help it can be quite daunting. I am mindful of the need therefore to set people at ease from the outset. I accommodate what differing clients are looking for from a psychologist ranging from finding solutions and learning strategies to process-oriented approaches that provide the opportunity to safely explore, understand, and heal the emotional pain that often underlies psychological stress and problematic behaviour.

Gambling Counsellors
A compulsive gambler or a pathological gambler is someone who is unable to resist his or her impulses to gamble. The urge to gamble becomes so great that tension can only be relieved by more gambling.

There is a very fine line between problem gambling or Preston gambling addiction and gambling too much. The critical sign of problem gambling is often hidden from awareness, with denial. Many gamblers in Preston typically do not know they have a problem. Admitting you have a problem, or may have a problem, is the first step to recovery.

Treatment options include individual and group psychotherapy, and self-help support groups such as Gamblers Anonymous (a 12-step programme for gamblers). Abstinence principles that apply to other types of addiction are also relevant in the treatment of compulsive gambling behaviour in Preston.

Recently, medications such as antidepressants, opioid antagonists, and mood stabilizers have been shown to be beneficial in combination with gambling treatment by a Preston gambling counsellor or gambling counsellors in Preston or those experienced with gambling behaviours in Preston.
