Hello, I am a qualified and registered counsellor. Understandably, contacting a counsellor can be daunting. However, if you are feeling overwhelmed, anxious, disconnected, depressed, lost or are feeling 'something is missing' and you need support, it could be the best decision you ever make. Although talking to a friend or colleague is often helpful, and offers some temporary relief, we sometimes need a professionally trained therapist to 'really hear us' and to listen out for unhelpful patterns of behaviour/beliefs that are keeping us stuck or unhappy. With awareness we have new choices, we can regain control of our lives, forever.
