Hello and welcome. We all have times when we need some emotional support. You may be feeling sad, anxious, low, or confused or finding it hard to organise your thoughts. You may feel that you may be judged if you talk about what you are thinking and feeling. It may seem as though you are all alone with overwhelming worries, unable to focus on anything or anyone else. You may feel that things don’t feel right for you anymore, and that you want things to change, but don't know where to start. It may seem as though at this point you are still unsure as to what it is that brings you to counselling.

I enjoy helping you discover the key to why you are suffering with anxiety, OCD or depression. I can help you feel better and will give you hope, love and acceptance. I understand struggling with anxiety can be overwhelming, particularly if you are experiencing panic attacks. It can literally feel like you are going to die. You are not going to die or going mad. Anxiety is simply your body's way of letting you know things are not quite right. Anxiety creates fear, which triggers the 'flight or fight' response. We can also become locked in a vicious circle of being afraid of the fear.

Trauma comes in many forms; obvious, overt ones such as physical or sexual abuse, car accidents, war, disasters etc, and also less obvious or covert forms like emotional abuse or neglect, bullying, or just 'not getting what we need' on an emotional level.

Helping children & adolescents through emotional and psychological challenges can feel like an exhausting and onerous endeavour for parents and carers. Equally, it is not always easy for a young person to talk freely about their feelings, particularly with their family or friends as they may be too close to the problem. Counselling provides an opportunity to express their feelings about what is going on in their lives in a confidential and safe setting.

We all respond differently to the pressures and changes- you may be swinging from one emotion to another, or feeling numb and tired, or just can't think straight... We are all doing our best to cope, but maybe your normal ways of coping aren't working well enough at the moment? Or maybe you have turned to ways of coping that are unhelpful- like drinking too much ? I can help you find your feet and see what is important for you right now. I know how important it is to find a breathing space to process what is happening when you are living with chaos and uncertainty

Drug Abuse Counsellors
Drug Abuse is a form of physical addiction characterised by the brain's overreaction to drugs (or to cues associated with the drugs). Drug addiction may take many forms or be caused by many substances but when referred to in the clinical sense usually involves an addiction to amphetamines, cannabis or marijuana, cocaine, hallucinogens, nicotine, opioids or sedatives.

If you're looking for help with drug abuse in Cheltenham or for Cheltenham drug abuse counselling, these counsellors provide confidential support for drug addiction or for individuals and couples in a relationship where drugs are a disruptive factor. They include Cheltenham drug abuse counsellors, drug abuse psychologists and Cheltenham drug abuse therapists. A counsellor can help with drug addiction in Cheltenham, alcohol drug addiction, teenage drug addiction, substance and Cheltenham drug abuse Counselling and treatment for drug addiction in Cheltenham. A counsellor can also identify the signs and causes of drug addiction, discuss intervention and refer victims to drug addiction treatment centres, dry-out clinics or drug programmes.

Drug abuse causes problems for the family and loved ones of drug addicts who may also need help and support.
