Feeling stuck? Or does life seem exhausting, stressful or unrewarding? If prolonged feelings are causing distress or you feel vulnerable and confused following a specific life event or change, perhaps it's time to share what's happening to try to make sense of things? I will listen carefully to help you gain clarity and find a way forward. If past or present experiences continue to cause concern and you are fed up of feeling the same way, counselling provides an opportunity to be heard and supported.

Life can be hard but you don't have to cope alone. Many people hide their sadness, challenges, and turmoils. Asking for help is nothing to be ashamed of. People often feel pressured to bury their true feelings for fear of rejection, judgement and stigma. It's important to realise that you are not alone, there are many people who feel the same way. It is comforting to know we are all together in our feelings of solitude and all we need to do is have the courage to speak to one another. Counselling can help you put aside the brave face you wear for family and friends as it can be difficult to talk openly and honestly with them.
