Psychotherapy is a talking therapy to work through issues causing you distress in your life. Perhaps your difficulties are clear to you. I work with anxiety, depression, panic attacks, bereavement, trauma, abuse and relationship difficulties. Alternatively, it be difficult to identify a particular thing and you feel a general sense of being lost and lacking direction. The therapeutic relationship holds the potential for healing and transformation. Links from your past experiences and how they may affect the way you live in the present can enable change to enable you to move forward making better decisions for yourself.

During these difficult times, when we are isolated within ourselves, it is natural to feel stressed, anxious and/or depressed or low in mood. Now more than ever it is important for us to look after our mental health, so that we can all emerge from this period with more self-awareness, and with a better level of psychological balance. If you’re feeling overwhelmed, it is important to recognise your struggle and give it credence. Health anxiety, depression and insomnia may be writhe, but I am here to provide a treatment, tools and strategies that have a proven track record of recovery.

Great, you have already taken the first steps for you. I am not the expert on you, you are. I am here to support and explore with you what you maybe finding difficult or just not feeling Ok. This may be in your relationships, in your physical body or you are finding both these things are overwhelming sometimes. Together we can wonder, ponder and educate ourselves and understand, why? Then we can make a strategy and build on your already available resilience (you are here remember), and improve this together. This maybe just a few sessions, sometimes just one or a little longer if you need this.

Depression Counsellors
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy by depression counsellors in Canterbury. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
