My time with Anxiety UK has been invaluable and has given me a good grounding in working with different types of anxiety, stress & depression .
Is anxiety a problem for you? Would you like to feel calmer, less stressed and sleep better? Perhaps you want to make positive changes in your life but don’t know where to start, or learn how to say no, be more assertive and kinder to yourself. Do you put yourself down & criticise yourself, struggle to make decisions or feel confused by your feelings and relationships? Counselling with me can help you. It’s the best self-care ever and can help you gain the confidence you need to feel better about yourself, reduce your stress and anxiety, explore your feelings and understand why you react to things in the way you do.

I am studying my degree in Criminology and Psychology.

I totally understand that looking for a counsellor is very daunting and appreciate the decision to try therapy can evoke many feelings of anxiety. But sometimes just talking through your concerns and being truly listened to can help you see things from a unique perspective. By working together in a confidential and safe space enables an increased sense of understanding of your thoughts and feelings, especially when feeling disheartened, anxious, depressed confused and unable to cope. Together we can explore new coping strategies and make choices about change.

Counselling can help you work through troubling emotions, thoughts or behaviour. This might include recurring thoughts, anxiety, depression and compulsive or unwanted behaviour. Counselling can also provide a space for those who wish to explore issues from their past including childhood and how these may be impacting them today. Sometimes clients find a few sessions just having the space and time to voice their concerns helps them to clarify things and make connections. Other clients will want to look more deeply into their past and current issues and may require more sessions.

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 Basingstoke. 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.
