It could be you have recently hit a tough time in your life and need a space to make sense of it. It might be that a relationship has become difficult; with your partner, at work with colleagues, with your children or close family members. You may be suffering symptoms of anxiety and depression and you are finding it harder to function in daily life. It may be that you are transitioning from one stage to another in your life; leaving home, starting a family or approaching retirement and you need somewhere to work through some of the feelings of anxiety, fear and uncertainty that such a change can bring.

'Should I go to therapy?' This question may take some time to contemplate before you decide that you are ready for counselling or psychological therapy. When any type of mental health or emotional concern affects your daily life and function, therapy can help you work through the difficulties you are experiencing. You do not have to be diagnosed with a mental health problem to benefit from therapy. Many people in therapy seek help to talk through life challenges such as relationship problems, grief, parenting difficulties, or family struggles.

At times life is tough and this can challenge our emotional health and well being, making us feel overwhelmed, stuck, anxious, depressed, angry or lacking in self esteem. You may be finding it difficult to put words to your current feelings or make any sense of what you are experiencing and this can be both frightening and isolating. I believe counselling can be a transformative and meaningful experience, with change made possible through a supportive therapeutic relationship, which helps us to move towards acceptance of self or empowerment to positive change. As such, I am dedicated to bringing about healing and growth in others.

Do you feel sometimes that words are not enough when trying to understand or express what you feel? Maybe there is a sense that you can't get to the heart of the problem, whether you are feeling stressed, stuck, bored, alone, sad or depressed? Perhaps your emotions feel too big, you fear getting lost in them, or you don't know where to start. Or maybe you sense that your feelings live more in your body, than your mind and so you struggle to articulate them. Sometimes it is hard to open up to another human being in a way which truthfully reflects how you really feel or the complexities of your life.

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 Hove. 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.
