Life seems to be particularly difficult right now with the added challenges of Coronavirus. We're all trying to adapt and deal with uncertainty and living with all sorts of limitations on our normal life. Now, more than ever we're experiencing feelings of stress, anxiety, depression and fear. Our thoughts can become overwhelming, leaving us feeling disconnected, isolated and lonely. I have adapted my way of working and am now offering online and telephone counselling.

Are you finding it difficult to cope? Do you feel like you need to talk to someone? You may find it helpful to open up to someone who is not connected to your life. There are numerous reasons to consider counselling, from experiencing difficulties, going through life transitions, to feeling unable to cope or feeling overwhelmed and in pain. You do not need to be in crisis to engage in counselling either. You may feel stuck and want change. You may not even know what you want to change but you may feel that there is something wrong or something does not work.

My mode of therapy is psychodynamic, based on Freudian psychoanalysis, where a basic, central, premise was his view of the mind. Freud’s belief intimated that some of what we experience on a day-to-day basis e.g. emotions, beliefs and impulses; takes place in the unconscious and is not available to the conscious mind. Similarly, my belief, is that the unconscious mind governs behaviour to a much greater degree than people suspect and my therapy involves deep exploration of clients’ past to access, and understand, the root cause of their problems. The emphasis of psychodynamic therapy is on the trust between client and therapist.

Modern life can be hectic. Balancing the daily demands of work, family and social commitments with our desire for happiness, health and enjoyment can feel exhausting. Not to mention the baggage of unprocessed emotions, experiences and limiting self-belief most of us drag around with us. We all need to slow down sometimes and reconnect with ourselves, our true purpose and the things that give our lives meaning. This is not a quick fix to a problem, it is a deeply therapeutic transformation, which is likely to affect every area of your life.

In a non-judgemental, warm and supportive environment, I will help you to understand where the problems you are experiencing have arisen. We will work out why they have become so problematic and hard to deal with. I will help you to find strategies to cope better and tools to help you to move on in your life and feel stronger and more content.

I offer a safe and confidential space for you to talk about any issues you might have. I will listen to your story with compassion and help you find your own solutions, whether that is making effective changes in your life or change the way you view yourself, others and experience relationships.

If you find that you keep trying to protect yourself from difficult experiences/memories and your old ways of managing problems no longer seem to work, you are not alone. Old/early response methods are often unhelpful in the present life experience. For example, one may try to only feel what they learned to believe is acceptable or expected of them, eventually losing touch with their authentic feelings/needs. Emotion suppression often leads to depression, anxiety, physical pain, and illness, then one feels unable to fully appreciate the present experience. When suppressed, emotions await within the body for releasing opportunities.

Can I afford counselling?
Yes. Most counsellors offer reasonable rates or will work on a sliding scale basis. Many accept health insurance. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the counsellor.
