Going round the circle, even though you do to get out? It can be frustrating and draining. Or maybe, you have been living a fulfilling, happy life up till now. But something happened and it changed the way you think and feel about yourself and the world around you. It can be confusing and scary. Maybe you feel, as if you were standing at the crossroads and were too afraid to choose your path. It can make you feel unable and hopeless.

Have you ever felt as though you are putting on a brave face, when really you feel you are breaking inside and feel exhausted with trying to keep up? Perhaps you are experiencing loss, a relationship breakdown, anxiety, depression, addiction, trauma, dark thoughts. Life is sometimes difficult where the past and present issues can leave you feeling overwhelmed and detached from people. I know how difficult it can be to open up to someone, especially with a counsellor you have never met, I know because I have been there too.

If you are thinking about taking that first step come for an initial introductory appointment for £35. There's no obligation, just an opportunity to explore the potential for change. In 13 years as a Psychotherapist I have come to understand the individual nature of each client. Some clients prefer the spoken word, and this is the main focus, but others enjoy alternative forms of communication such as drawing or writing to help them explore their feelings. I taught Art and Design for 28 years and continue to be a visual artist. Art brings balance into my life.

Hello and a very warm welcome to you! People come to therapy for a variety of reasons. Perhaps you are experiencing difficulty with knowing what your feelings are. Or are struggling to express them. Alternately, you may be feeling very disconnected, unfulfilled or empty. Maybe you are confused about who you are, or what you want from life, and this prevents you from living in the moment. Are you trying to cope with a difficult life event, or is there just the sense that things are not right?
