Anxiety and stress rob us of our confidence and make life feel too much. You may find yourself struggling or feeling inadequate. You might blame yourself for not coping as well as you think you should. Maybe you doubt yourself or tend to expect the worst. Life might feel hard to enjoy or have lost its pleasure. These are are all un-talked about side effects of anxiety and stress. Prolonged anxiety or stress takes its toll on us both physically and emotionally. We might suffer from: worry, panic, poor sleep , tiredness, muscle tension, trouble concentrating and feel unable to relax.

Hello and thank you for visiting my profile. Managing life's challenges and our mental health can be overwhelming. Whether it's anxiety, depression, coping with loss or just working out what's wrong and why we're feeling sad, we sometimes need help with our thoughts and feelings. Working online or in person in Colchester, I work with adult individuals to help them gently explore what's troubling them and to find a way forward.

Do you need someone to listen? Do you feel you’re not heard or seen? Do you feel misunderstood, to blame, angry, sad, anxious, disillusioned? Is family life, work or other relationships getting too much to cope with? Throughout life, we are often left with feelings of low self worth, anger, sadness or may feel powerless. We can become confused about who we are, what we need and where life is taking us. This accumulation over many years blinds us to who we really are and sometimes we need help to find out. I believe I can help you.

Emotion can be overwhelming. You may feel pressure to change or feel unable to be true to yourself. Sometimes, past experiences can pull you down. You may feel shame or guilt, or feel completely lost. How would you feel if I told you that it is ok not to be ok, that your feelings are important and what you want from life matters? I work with people from all walks of life and I have had the privilege to witness the positive transformation and resilience that people have. You are not alone and I know change is possible.

Hi there, my name is Ellie and I am a Counsellor specializing in trauma and the common coping skills that develop from it's effects. These include the areas of disordered eating, body image issues (including body dysmorphia), addiction (self-medicating to avoid the effects of trauma), being drawn to abusive relationships and patterns of becoming stuck and paralyzed in these damaging dynamics. The heart of my therapeutic work is to help clients discover their authentic self and to gently dis-engage from painful old beliefs they may have internalized from complex and overwhelming environments.

Are you feeling overwhelmed, stressed or unsure of how you are feeling but just know that something is not right. Do you struggle with every day life, are you feeling trapped, scared or alone. Do you find it difficult to get out of bed in the morning and lack interest in things you used to enjoy. If you do not understand why you feel low or anxious, we can work together to get to explore your experiences and enjoy a better quality of life. I have extensive knowledge and experience working with abuse and trauma as well as depression and anxiety. I work face to face, online using zoom or teams and the telephone.

Do you feel overwhelmed, unsafe and lonely? Are you finding elements of your life a struggle and don't know where to turn? Can you no longer see the wood for the trees and have lost direction? Many people lose touch with the person they are supposed to be for many reasons and seek to find their true selves again but may just need a helping hand and support along the way. Counselling can be the first step back to removing the barriers which have kept you lost and help you back on the path you were intended to follow.

Sleep or Insomnia Counsellors
What is a Sleep Disorder or Insomnia?

Almost everyone goes through bouts of sleeplessness in Colchester from time to time. Chronic insomnia, however, is marked by difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep, or waking up too early. If it takes you thirty minutes or more to fall asleep, or you're awake for thirty minutes or more during the night at least three times a week-for a month or more-you're likely suffering from insomnia.

Insomnia has major effects on mood as well as alertness. It is also a classic symptom of depression.

The most effective treatments for chronic insomnia are behavioural techniques that eliminate sleep anxiety and allow the body's own sleep cycle to kick in. It may require as little as doing nothing. But Sleep specialists in Colchester or counsellors who spesialise in sleep in Colchester, or simply a Colchester sleep counsellor, can help. Likewise, insomnia specialists in Colchester or counsellors who specialise in insomnia in Colchester, or simply a Colchester insomnia counsellor, can help.

Sleep disorders may include sleep apnea, narcolepsy or simply chronic snoring.
