You might be in crisis: a relationship breakdown, sudden news of the death of a loved one or an illness , a work loss, or at an emotional or spiritual crossroads. Or you may generally have the feeling that your life isn't all you'd like it to be - you feel stuck, aren't living up to your potential or feeling as fulfilled or happy as you would like. Either way, you can be supported to navigate successfully through the very choppy waters of crisis - or the fog of confusion or uncertainty. You don't have to go it alone! You may well emerge from the other side a stronger and happier person than you ever thought possible.

Hello I'm Jess and I work with young people (aged 10 upwards) and adults in their 20s and 30s to help you understand yourself better. Does life not really make sense to you? Do you feel lost or confused about what's going on for you? Everything might look like it's going okay on the surface and yet underneath you wonder what it's all about. What would it be like to explore your life and figure out who you really are?

People take the step to seek counselling for many reasons. Perhaps you are experiencing feelings of anxiety, overwhelm or depression. You may be facing a dilemma, feeling stuck or lacking a sense of purpose or direction in life. Often people will come because they are struggling with relationship or family issues that feel hard to resolve. A traumatic event, loss or life-stage crisis might lead you to look for professional support.

Most of our problems in life, in my opinion, stem from difficulties managing and understanding ourselves - how we got to where we find ourselves, why we struggle to cope, why we feel the way we do. Counselling offers an opportunity to learn how we tick and why, which is one way to ease some of the psychological and/or physical burdens we find ourselves carrying. Counselling is an investment in oneself, a start in unravelling the complexities of who we are.

Now more than ever we are living in a world where contact with others has become increasingly difficult, not just physically but also emotionally. It would be understandable for many people to be feeling isolated and cut of from the rest of humanity at this time, for some this may also trigger painful, old wounds of unmet needs and maybe even a sense of hopelessness. You may crave feeling really connected to someone who is fully present with you and is invested in really understanding you and your situation, someone who can help you to create a relationship that will help to heal relationships that have failed in the past.

Counselling can provide a place for honesty for all the battles in our heads, from medically diagnosed conditions, past trauma, sexual desire, issues of gender, to everyday compulsive negative thinking. Understanding our own experience, in a world that seems to change so rapidly, surrounded by seemingly limitless information that offers wholly contradictory explanations can leave us feeling isolated and overwhelmed. Finding, and maintaining, personal meaning amongst so much uncertainty is tough. Counselling can reduce anxiety and deepen understanding as we strive to create personal harmony with both internal and external tensions.

In troubling times it can sometimes feel like you are alone & seeking help might feel really difficult. Just having a space to make sense of the thoughts that jumble around our heads is invaluable. Perhaps you need to understand yourself, your relationships or events from your past. Sometimes all we need is someone to just listen and hear our story. Counselling promotes insight, fosters self-awareness & creates a stronger, more resilient sense of self. This powerful combination can be the kick-start for the changes in your life you wish to make - sometimes even the smallest changes can make a huge difference in your well-being.

We all face difficult times in life, in fact I think we could just say, life is difficult. In counselling you will be thinking with another person about how you manage life’s struggles, how you relate to friends and family and how your present situation may be related to your past experiences. Talking and thinking with another can bring about a new perspective to old problems or worries and help you find new ways of approaching things. in. In my experience even small changes can have a very positive impact. Speaking to someone might feel a bit daunting to begin with but I find people soon settle in.

I recognise that life is a journey that can sometimes be a struggle. Life in this modern world is often chaotic, stressful and moves at such a fast pace, yet our reptilian brains are still designed to deal with cave man threats. This can lead to our bodies being flooded with fight, flight or freeze responses. In time these can build and lead to conditions such as anxiety, depression and low level trauma if not dealt with correctly. Having the support to help you through is not always easy to find.
