For lots of people asking for help or support can be difficult and uncomfortable, but for most of us there are times in our lives when we may feel we really need it. Whoever we are, whatever our circumstances, life can be a very real struggle and one we do not always feel we can sort out alone or manage alone. Having the opportunity to share this, be listened to and understood without being judged can be the first step towards making sense of things and finding the answers.

Are you feeling that you need a supportive relationship to help with issues in your life? At different times in life we may feel overwhelmed, alone or stuck and it can help to talk in a non judgemental setting. You may be considering therapy for many reasons and the first step is to just make contact. This can bring feelings of nervousness but it can also be a very exciting moment. You can ask for the help and support you need. It’s very important that you feel completely comfortable with your counsellor, that they are a person you can share all of yourself with.

I work psychodynamically, which means when we work together we look at what’s going on for you at the moment and what's gone on in your past. We look at your relationships with others and your relationship with yourself, and by doing this you can gain insight and understanding to the reasons for current problems and work towards increasing your capacity to cope with difficulties...current and future. Working this way can help to unravel some of the more deep-rooted feelings that aren't always in our conscious awareness, and in turn, help to resolve them.

You may wholeheartedly wish to cut down or stop drinking and/or using substances. However, you may find it harder to do than you imagined. Problematic drug and alcohol use causes unhappiness – to you and the people around you. I offer online therapy for alcohol/drug problems, including recovery mentoring and relapse prevention guidance. Addiction counselling helps you understand the nature of addiction, strengthens commitment to cutting down or achieving abstinence, and addresses the risky thinking and behaviour that can sabotage recovery. I've also helped partners and family members affected by addiction for more than 20 years.
