You may be finding life tough, finding it hard to put your finger on what’s causing distress. General feelings of sadness and low self-esteem may be making it difficult to see who you truly are. Your sense of purpose may be ebbing, or indeed gone altogether. Instead, there may be a constant, nagging feeling of wishing things were different. But not knowing what that different looks or feels like. Whether or not it even exists. Do you feel your voice is being smothered by work pressures, or your personal aims are being crushed? The overwhelming anxiety that seems to dictate your every thought and move...

You might have been experiencing uncertainty and anxiety, or low self-esteem. Your life experience, or how you relate to yourself and others, may be troubling you. There could be patterns in your behaviour which you feel unable to change- history repeating itself. Possibly the ways that you have learned to see yourself and others are unhelpful, and you are want to create better relationships with yourself and others. Perhaps you are looking for another way, to give yourself time and space to explore and understand yourself better, and how to respond in life situations, relationships and work.

I have worked with adults and young people with depression, anxiety, loss, low confidence and low self esteem , relationship issues and addiction.
If you have come to a point in your life where things have become too much and you feel you or a member of your family need some extra support, then counselling is a great way to reach out. Through building honest, trusting relationships, I aim to help my clients understand and overcome their difficulties while developing tools to help them in the future. I am an integrative counsellor, which means I draw from a number of different approaches to counselling. This allows for an open space where we can find the best way of working which suits you. This might include creative work, sharing my knowledge on theory or using mindfulness.

Therapy is really about negotiating an effective change. It may be that you want to change how you feel about yourself or others. It may be that your outlook on life is making you feel unsatisfied? Perhaps you are at a transition in your life that you want some support with? Perhaps you have lost ways of being in your relationship/s? Some people use ways of coping that make things worse, and need to change. Whatever the change is that you are seeking help to effect, my aim in all this is to help you understand and negotiate a meaningful and lasting change.

To become aware of personal strengths and also the barriers that may be holding you back. Together we work on how you can move forward with new knowledge and skills to live a more authentic and meaningful life going forward.

The ups and downs of life can be overwhelming and can challenge your confidence. The courage it takes to seek help is the bravest step towards positive change that you can make. I understand how challenging it can be to trust someone you don't know while sharing your emotions. You will be at the heart of the process; after all, it's all about you and your wellbeing.

Sometimes stress and anxiety can make it hard for us to fully function or you’re finding the world confusing and life is just not making sense. Would you like to gain confidence in yourself and explore your addictive behavior? what would it be like to have someone really listen to you without judgment?

Struggling? In a dark confusing scary place? Maybe you're feeling a mixture of difficult feelings; anger, sadness, guilt, shame, low mood, anxiety, loneliness, feeling like no-one understands or that no-one listens. Perhaps you’ve experienced a crippling loss of someone or some part of your life and you don’t know where to turn. You don’t know what to do, you feel stuck and lost. So, what are you going to do? Go talk to a stranger about it? Counselling can feel like a terrifying thing to do.

Life not turned out how you had expected or hoped? Something not sitting right? A niggling thought or unrest within you? Happiness feels out of reach? Having experienced my own, at times, bumpy journey it has given me a fierce and unshakeable belief that change is possible in us all and we all have the potential to have a life beyond our wildest dreams! That’s not always to say we get what we may have fantasised about but that we work on ourselves; and as we embark on this our dreams change and they become reachable as we become more teachable and learn about the authentic us and what we really want

Self Esteem Counsellors
Self-esteem lives on a spectrum: Not enough self-regard (or low self esteem) can lead people to become depressed, or to tolerate abusive situations and relationships. Too much self-love (or high self-esteem), results in an off-putting sense of entitlement and an inability to learn from failure. And it's occasionally a sign of clinical narcissism. Quite the opposite of being shy or shyness, yet still on the same spectrum.
