Life isn’t always easy. Even the strongest people need a bit of help to work through some of life’s more challenging problems. Everyone has battles and hurdles to overcome at some point. If you are struggling with anxiety, depression, self-esteem, relationhsip problems, or many other issue, you should know that there is hope for a better tomorrow. As someone who has been through the mill myself, I know people are hesitant about seeking out help and support for emotional issues, but when you do, you will feel confident that you are taking a first step towards getting to a better place, to being a mentally fitter you.

It could be linked to present day issues, to bereavement and loss, to anxiety, low mood, struggling to cope with life, isolation and loneliness. It may linked to your life moving forward from lockdown and covid. Counselling can help to improve the way you feel, increase your self esteem and confidence. It can help you understand why you behave as you do in relationships and look at different ways of relating. It can be an opportunity to consider past life events and how they affect your life now and the decisions that you make.

Life can be tough even at the best of times and difficulties arising can leave us feeling stressed, anxious, depressed or overwhelmed; unable to cope. It helps to talk but we often feel unable to burden those close to us, and here is where counselling can help. I offer a warm, empathic, non-judgemental approach where you can feel listened to and valued, creating a safe, confidential space for you to express, explore,understand and work through any thoughts, feelings or behaviours that are causing difficulties, however big or small. I work with and support a wide range of mental health issues both in the long and short term.

Are you exhausted by the effort it takes to manage your feelings? Do you want to feel safe? Do you wonder who you are or why you feel bad? Whether you are struggling with anxiety, depression, low self esteem, panic disorders or relationship problems, there is good news. Research has shown that a good relationship with a counsellor/therapist can really help. My approach is to help you understand both 'your hidden self' (the unconscious) and find everyday tools and tasks that can help you change your life. I hope I can show you that all the wisdom and creativity you need to enjoy your life is within reach.

It can be difficult to know where to start when feeling depressed or anxious. ​ I appreciate that many people become a little anxious at the prospect of an intense atmosphere in a counselling room. Thats not how I work though. My first aim is to help you relax. To see that yes, it is a 'safe and confidential environment for you to talk about anything that you want'. But there's no need for it to be a heavy and intense atmosphere either. I believe we can be practical, pragmatic and make some real changes without sacrificing empathy or compassion.
