Are you upset and overwhelmed by relationships, work situations, family issues? That sense of panic and over thinking where your body feels stressed & the anxiety rockets? Did something happen that you have not shared with anyone, or feel nobody ‘gets it’? Has it felt too big & yet needs sorting and resolving? It’s understandable to feel frustrated, anxious or angry. Dealing with those feelings while maintaining a family, job & ‘a busy life’ can feel like hard work. “There needs to be more to life” & “It needs to be better than this “ are often said. To feel free from the past, to build a confidence in yourself.

I offer a safe and confidential space for you to talk openly about any issues which may be causing you distress or concern in your life. It is not unusual for people to feel depressed or anxious at some stage in their life. Sometimes this can be related to a particular life event, other times these feelings can seem to come from nowhere. These periods can feel never ending and intense and often result in leaving you feeling isolated, confused stuck and struggling. Working with individuals, young people and couples, I provide short term solution focused therapy as well as long term therapy for issues needing more exploration.

Experiencing problems or difficulties can impact on our feelings, behaviour, relationships and ability to engage in learning and growing - children and young people are no different! Poor mental health can cause disruptions to a child’s life and without appropriate support it can stay with them throughout their adult life, affecting their long-term wellbeing and ability to reach their full potential. Sometimes it is difficult to speak to people we feel closest too, we don't want to upset or worry them. Counselling offers a child a regular, private safe space to express and explore any worries and difficult feelings.

A warm welcome to you. I’m Celia and I work with women to strengthen their self-esteem. If you constantly feel ‘not good enough’, you’re afraid that life’s opportunities are passing you by or you’re stifled by the need to constantly people please, then self esteem counselling may be for you. We live in a high pressure world and many things can rock our self-esteem – a difficult childhood, a hurtful comment or a disappointing relationship. But self-esteem can be renewed and repaired. Many of my clients report feeling significantly better after completing our counselling sessions together.

I offer therapy to adults, young people, and couples. Counselling can help when we feel stuck, lost and overwhelmed and can’t find a way to make sense of those difficult feelings on our own. Speaking to someone who isn’t a friend or family member can help you to see a problem from a different perspective, without judgement or bias. You may be struggling with feelings of sadness, anxiety, stress, anger or loss. Perhaps you'd like to find the mental tools to help give you greater resilience and confidence. Or you could be looking for ways to manage conflict and improve communication within your personal relationships.

If we never take a leap of faith then we never know. More significantly we remain stuck. I often talk to clients about the power of change. In my work I am for people to gain a greater understanding of who they really are. Whilst enabling them to explore their feelings, circumstances and relationships. The goal of our work together is to challenge any destructive patterns or behaviours and work towards positive active change. In the end this enables people to live a more fulfilling and calmer life.
