Life presents us with numerous challenges, that can feel overwhelming and debilitating at times. Stress, anxiety, depression, or feelings of panic, confusion and other distress can make it difficult to function. Perhaps you feel stuck in old patterns of behaviour or in relationships that aren’t healthy, but you just can’t find your way out alone. Maybe a change has been forced on you through bereavement, a break-up, redundancy, or another big life event, and you’re not coping very well. If this is you, having somebody independent to talk to, can provide relief and the opportunity to work through and understand your feelings.

Problems are personal, bereavement, depression, stress, relationship breakdowns and anxiety can all feel unbearable and isolating. The reasons for seeking counselling or psychotherapy are as unique and varied as we are. Sometimes we have an idea of what is annoying or upsetting us. Sometimes we struggle to understand issues that darken our days. We might enter a cycle of blame or self-loathing in which we get lost, finding it difficult to move forwards in our lives.

On our journey through life, we can become lost and caught up in negative thoughts and feelings. This can change our perception and take us out of balance. It may also affect our well-being by creating problems in our relationships which may lead to anxiety, depression or low self-esteem. Counselling can help us to understand patterns in our life that cause distress and helps to facilitate insights into the core of our thinking, our self belief, our behaviour and the imposed limitations to bring about change. I have experience in working with teenagers and adults with anxiety, depression, loss and bereavement and low self esteem.

Thank you for visiting my page. Now, perhaps more than ever, we may be considering our mental well-being in these challenging times. I believe Counselling can be highly effective in enabling us to deal with personal issues that many of us encounter at times in our lives. I have particular experience with enabling men (and/or their partners) to deal with their relationship issues and anxieties. This may particularly involve looking into anger, the go-to response for many men, which is often a warning sign of underlying issues. Drawing on my own experience, I can also help people to successfully make transitions in their careers.

If you're reading this, I am guessing that there is something that's getting in the way of how you'd like to live your life and with how you are coping. Seeking a therapist is not a weakness; it’s not a sign that you are not strong enough to get through this on your own. It’s not that you are not “man enough” or “woman enough” to carry on. Asking for help does not make you a failure. Walking into a room and asking for help from a stranger is brave and courageous. It’s a sign that you've recognised that you need help, that you are vulnerable and you are willing to share it with someone else.

People seek therapy when they are dissatisfied or unhappy and feel that it is possible to make changes but this is very difficult alone. Psychotherapy is a particular type of conversation exploring thoughts, feelings and relationships. Psychotherapy offers the opportunity to think about what is troubling in a safe setting to understand and improve relationships, both with ourselves and others. My thinking and approach places relationships at the heart of experience. When patterns in relationships can be understood we can feel liberated to change.
