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.

I know that it can be daunting reaching out for help and that many people never do reach out, perhaps because they are the strong ones who are supporting everyone else around them so their needs are at the bottom of the long list of things to do and people to look after. Please know that you are important too. And in helping yourself, you are also helping those around you. If you are feeling anxious or low in mood for whatever reason, I can help and support you through this. A light house offers hope to those travelling on turbulent seas, I see myself as that guiding light to those that find me and travel in my direction.

Asking for help can be difficult and contacting a therapist may feel scary. That’s why from our first contact I aim to create a safe, confidential non-judgemental space for you to explore your difficulties. Talking to a therapist offers a different perspective on how you feel and relate to others. We’ll draw on your past and present to find new ways to move forward for the best future for you. We can all get stuck reacting in ways that are not always useful to our wellbeing. Working with a psychotherapist brings insight into how we react, why we react that way, and changing negative patterns thinking, feeling and behaviour.

Sleep or Insomnia Counsellors
What is a Sleep Disorder or Insomnia?

Almost everyone goes through bouts of sleeplessness in St Albans from time to time. Chronic insomnia, however, is marked by difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep, or waking up too early. If it takes you thirty minutes or more to fall asleep, or you're awake for thirty minutes or more during the night at least three times a week-for a month or more-you're likely suffering from insomnia.

Insomnia has major effects on mood as well as alertness. It is also a classic symptom of depression.

The most effective treatments for chronic insomnia are behavioural techniques that eliminate sleep anxiety and allow the body's own sleep cycle to kick in. It may require as little as doing nothing. But Sleep specialists in St Albans or counsellors who spesialise in sleep in St Albans, or simply a St Albans sleep counsellor, can help. Likewise, insomnia specialists in St Albans or counsellors who specialise in insomnia in St Albans, or simply a St Albans insomnia counsellor, can help.

Sleep disorders may include sleep apnea, narcolepsy or simply chronic snoring.
