Is this you? Is your mind clouded all the time, have you got 200 things running through your head, do you struggle to concentrate, find it hard to make decisions?   Do you doubt yourself lots, low-confidence, negative thoughts, think more of others than yourself?   Are you living in the past, grieving loved ones, not dealing with your problems, involved in toxic relationships?   Is it time to stop and think about your mental health and wellbeing?

My experience as an art psychotherapist draws upon psychodynamic theory, sensorimotor art therapy, cognitive approaches, and trauma-informed practice, so you can address emotional issues, trauma, anxiety, depression , physical or emotional pain, and adverse childhood experiences in an effective way.
Welcome to you and thank you for reaching out. It is a brave step to seek support. I will work with you to create a safe space where you feel comfortable and supported. It takes courage to work on your lived experiences and first we'll create safety in the therapeutic relationship so you can explore what is troubling you. Maybe you do not have words for your experiences and would feel safer exploring with art materials before you are able to say what is on your mind. Art therapy is a container for previously unmanageable emotions and painful thoughts or experiences which are often stored in the body as tension, stress or overwhelm.

We all know life can get tough at times and we can struggle to see our way through it. Sometimes it helps to talk those experiences or feelings through with someone who can really listen and brings no agenda with them. There are so many reasons to come to therapy difficult times in life, things feeling not quite right, anxiety or depression or things from our past effecting us in the here and now (attachment or trauma). Therapy is a safe, neutral place you can use to explore what is happening for you, and it can support you in deciding how you want to manage it.

My specialist area is recurrent anxiety, depression , past and recent trauma related to abuse, relationship problems, self-harm and self-esteem.
My clients come to me from all walks of life and have experienced trauma recently and/or in the past. This has resulted in my clients suffering from intense anxiety and fears and/or severe depression as well as relationship difficulties. My clients can feel stuck, vulnerable and helpless, which has such a disabling impact on their lives. I have the ability to initiate and maintain a confidential therapeutic relationship, where my clients feel safe, experience hope and a reduction of their psychological symptoms. My clients leave therapy feeling empowered and able to manage life's stresses.

We all need to talk to someone sometimes, right now life is extremely difficult for many off us! Talking issues through is often the best way to deal with our conflicting emotions. I specialise in depression , anxiety, ​and weight management, along with mid-life transitions and relationship counselling. I believe talking to someone totally unconnected to the problem can help clients see their situation through fresh eyes. I use a combination of therapies to help clients restructure their lives and issues. I am based in a private location in South Cheshire. Discretion is paramount!

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 Chester. 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.
