I qualified as a Clinical Psychologist in 2009 and have over 15 years experience working for the NHS. For the last 8 years I have worked in the Specialty of Weight Management. Here my aim is to help people understand the psychological barriers to making health-related changes. I work with people to explore the reasons behind obesity, overweight, binge eating, emotion-driven eating (comfort eating) and/or difficulties breaking the cycle of yo-yo dieting. I also help people improve their relationships with food, their bodies and with themselves.

We all experience some form of distress in our lives. It could be sadness, anger, loneliness, stress, grief, anxiety, depression or something that you can’t explain. It could be current or could have happened in the past, or you may not know when it happened. It could lead to feeling overwhelmed or unable to cope, it could be affecting the relationships around you both personally or professionally. There are many things that contribute to this distress and being aware of them can help to ease the connected emotions. Counselling can help you do this by providing a safe and confidential space to explore and reflect upon these feelings

"Having walked a certain path, as a Christian, my Faith in God and leaning on Him has been the greatest pillar I ever held on to experiencing my own post-traumatic growth. However, I value individual differences, respect, diversity, culture, integrity, honesty and ability to find your own path, grow, connect and build an enduring relationship. I firmly believe individuals can be empowered to find their own solutions. I am aware I might not have all the answers or solutions, but I could give one or two suggestions. I am happy to sit with people who find themselves in a dilemma, stuck in difficult and uncomfortable situations".

I offer standard and nature-based art therapy. Feeling stressed, anxious or burnt out? Want to regain equilibrium, ease your symptoms, and optimise resilience for the future? Connecting with your innate creativity can help express/explore emotions where words fail, and can help unconscious aspects of ourselves surface. Deepening our connection to nature can help contain difficult feelings, uplift and energise us. Sessions are client-led and can be as non-verbal as you wish. Working with art/nature online might seem counter-intuitive but works surprisingly well. Try a FREE initial session. No need to be outdoors during the session.

I was a client before I was a counsellor and I know from experience that seeking support isn't always easy. My first priority is to make accessing support as stress free as possible by establishing an informal yet supportive environment. By creating a space which is free of judgement and where there is no problem more or less worthy than another, I've helped many people work through some of their toughest moments. I've helped clients of various ages and from a range of backgrounds work through issues including anxiety, depression, stress, self-esteem, loneliness, relationships, domestic / sexual abuse, loss and trauma.

Sometimes, we reach a point when despite trying to sort out issues for ourselves, to overcome the experiences that life throws at us or to move on with our lives in hope that upsetting feelings will somehow disappear. Yet, we find ourselves numb, anxious, easily upset or annoyed struggling to enjoy the life we have. This can affect everything we hold dear: the relationships, the work, and interests that we once enjoyed; or, loss of identity or self-esteem that was unfairly destroyed because of past that we went through. It can be really hard to share our difficulties with someone, and I value your courage and respect your first step

Coping Skills Counsellors
With coping skills or coping mechanisms, we learn to overcome issues like stress, depression, anger or anxiety.

Pro-active coping involves dealing with a problem by using constructive coping activities such as planning, confrontation, self-control and restraint. Overuse of coping mechanisms, like avoiding problems or working obsessively, can exacerbate the weakness.

Emotion based coping skills reduce symptoms by addressing our feelings e.g. discussing the issues, distraction, relaxation, reframing or humor can all help. But negative coping mechanisms, which tend to be impulsive, like denial, projection, rationalisation, repression or wishful thinking can make the underlying problem worse.

Some coping methods are more like bad habits than constructive life skills e.g. drinking and drugs. Other examples might include skin biting, nail biting or hair pulling (trichotillomania).

If you find it hard to cope or are having trouble coping, counsellors in Stockport can help develop constructive coping skills for children, coping skills for kids and life coping skills.

If you're looking for help with coping skills in Stockport or for a Stockport coping skills counsellor, these professionals provide coping strategies. They include Stockport coping skills counsellors, coping skills psychologists, coping skills psychotherapists and coping skills counselling.
