Life can feel overwhelming at times, particularly as we emerge from two years of restrictions due to the Covid pandemic. Anxiety, depression and loneliness are common issues currently being faced by many people on top of relationship difficulties and traumas, including bereavement, loss or abuse. Counselling offers you the chance to talk about what is bothering you in a warm, empathic and confidential space. I am a BACP registered psychodynamic Counsellor and have found that by giving someone the space to talk and to reflect on how they are feeling enables them to understand themselves better.

We can all find life hard at times. It can throw up difficulties that feel overwhelming and out of our control. I support adults and teenagers through a range of issues including anxiety, depression , bereavement, relationship issues and Asperger Syndrome. When we experience distress, sadness, loneliness, anxiety or depressed mood, it can feel difficult to bear and leave us feeling powerless. Working alongside a therapist means you need not face these difficulties alone.

You might come to see a counsellor for a variety of reasons, such as a life-changing event that has created shock or grief. You may be experiencing feelings of depression and isolation, low self-esteem or suffering from feelings of anxiety. There may be events from your past that are preventing you from living your life in the way you would like to. Equally, you may be experiencing a lack of direction, feelings of boredom or of being trapped.Counselling provides a space in which you can explore your issues to raise your self-awareness. Often, the more accepting of yourself you become, the more options for change emerge.

I am mindful that emotional pain can lead to anxiety or depression .
When I work with clients we create an understanding of how their unique life experiences have led to their current difficulties. I will not take the position that something is ‘wrong' with you. We will work on ways to change your sense of stuckness rather than ‘fixing’ you. I am interested in you, your life and how your experiences have had an impact on you – I am not here to find faults with you. I strive for you to find a greater sense of understanding and recognition of your pain and sense of empowerment over change. We will create meaningful change by processing painful memories and working with unhelpful beliefs.

Hello and Welcome, Life has indeed become complex. Many of us are now struggling with our mental health in ways that are no longer manageable. Our past and present hurts, our unprocessed feelings have risen to the surface. We find ourselves thinking, feeling and acting in ways that do not reflect who we want to be. Some of us have Grief, Trauma or Addiction that we just can’t seem to work through. As a Senior Accredited Psychotherapist with a Master Degree and EMDR qualified, I've seen thousands come through my door, with various presenting issues and undergo genuine transformation, healing and leave with hope for the future.

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 Ashtead. 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.
