Anxiety, depression, addiction can creep up on us and eventually impact our day to day life leaving us feeling stressed, overwhelmed and even stop us in our tracks. That’s when counselling can be of real value. Entering into a supporting, non-judgemental, professional relationship to explore feelings, thoughts and behaviours can be extremely beneficial to gain a clearer understanding of your experience.

We can all have difficulties in everyday life and encounter problems that we simply find hard to cope with alone. You may feel worried, anxious, low, confused, isolated or may be experience difficulties in relationships. You may be suffering from feelings of low self esteem or low self confidence. You may have been diagnosed with anxiety, generalised anxiety disorder, depression, or maybe you are just feeling sad. When these feelings and thoughts persist and become overwhelming it may be difficult to know which way to turn.

I work using Zoom which allows you to access counselling from your own environment. This cuts out travelling time and may fit into a busy schedule. Even so, I recommend that you allow at least 15 minutes after sessions to think through what we have talked about. There is a need for you to create privacy so that we can speak freely and you are able to gain the most you can from the work we do together. Over the past seventeen years as a qualified counsellor I have helped clients with depression, addiction, codependency, anxiety, recovery from harmful relationships, bereavement and loss, trauma, family dynamics and workplace stress.

I have experience working with a broad range of psychological and emotional issues, including depression, anxiety/stress and low mood, bereavement/grief and loss.
Are you experiencing a difficult or challenging time in your life? Perhaps you are feeling stuck and unable to move forward? Whatever your reason for considering therapy and viewing my profile, it is often the case that we 'hit the wall' or 'crash' emotionally before we can identify that we may need professional support. When our usual coping mechanisms no longer work the struggle can be overwhelming. As your therapist I recognise this as your first and critical step toward positive change. You are I'm sure familiar with the phrase 'if you do what you've always done...you get what you've always got' and how true it is.....

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 Guildford. 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.
