You know something isn’t right in your life, but you don’t quite know where to begin to get help. Maybe the idea of speaking with somebody feels a little daunting, or you’re concerned you won’t be able to find the words, or they won’t understand where you’re coming from. This is absolutely normal, and is what most people feel before the call a therapist to get help. Even if you’ve been to counselling and psychotherapy before, the thought of explaining your story yet again might fill you with dread. What you could really do with is somebody that gets it, that you can feel comfortable with, that can help you feel understood, quickly.

Emotion can be overwhelming. You may feel pressure to change or feel unable to be true to yourself. Sometimes, past experiences can pull you down. You may feel shame or guilt, or feel completely lost. How would you feel if I told you that it is ok not to be ok, that your feelings are important and what you want from life matters? I work with people from all walks of life and I have had the privilege to witness the positive transformation and resilience that people have. You are not alone and I know change is possible.

My core purpose is to increase my clients’ emotional and behavioural mastery of the challenges of change. Change is an unplanned, unexpected event whose impact upon us, our families and our lives is momentous. It may seem to us that the event has shattered our identity and impaired our sense of self-hood and continuity. We may feel as if we no longer recognise ourselves as the person that we were before the change-event occurred.

If you are struggling in your life in some way such as depression, anxiety or stress then counselling is a great step towards moving through those feelings and discovering the life you want to lead. There can be tremendous value in talking through your ideas, problems and feelings with a therapist who has the experience, training and expertise to help with what you are going through.

Do you feel overwhelmed, unsafe and lonely? Are you finding elements of your life a struggle and don't know where to turn? Can you no longer see the wood for the trees and have lost direction? Many people lose touch with the person they are supposed to be for many reasons and seek to find their true selves again but may just need a helping hand and support along the way. Counselling can be the first step back to removing the barriers which have kept you lost and help you back on the path you were intended to follow.

You're a sensitive, thoughtful person. In so many ways you know you should feel lucky to have achieved what you have. But lately you've been feeling worried, overwhelmed and sometimes a bit hopeless. And your sensitivity - which could be your superpower - instead seems to only make you feel worse. You feel like you should be able to sort yourself out and carry on - but deep inside a small inner voice is calling out that it needs to be honoured and heard. You long to find somewhere that you can feel truly listened to and understood. Where it's okay that you're a complex person, full of contradictions and questions.

Divorce Counsellors
The dissolution of a marriage is almost always an upsetting event, at the very least marked by disappointment and the loss of dreams and expectations.

A divorce counsellor in Colchester can help you by exploring the struggles you’re facing, identifying whether or not those problems can be resolved, creating a realistic picture of what life would look like after divorce, and how your children could be affected and protected. In the process of answering these questions, a divorce counsellor helps you work towards acceptance and forgiveness
