My experience has been mostly focussed on supporting children and adults with anxiety and depression, issues around identity and culture, relationship problems and family matters.
We hear so much about the benefits of looking after our physical health but often forget our mental health is just as important. In the fast paced, stressful world we live in today, we face many struggles and often find our emotions can start to feel overwhelming. Counselling provides a safe space to talk through whatever you may be going through to help improve your wellbeing. I am a fully qualified Counsellor with a Professional Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling and I have experience of working with both adults and children.

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 Woodford Green. 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.
