I work with children, young people and their families, often when things are feeling difficult or overwhelming. Some of the reasons families have worked with me include: support to understand and manage feelings of anxiety, depression or frustration; difficulties with emotion-regulation; and difficulties within family relationships, including parent-infant and parent-child relationships.

WALKING WHILST TALKING might just give you the space and freedom to begin to understand some uncomfortable feelings and past experiences in the safe hands of myself within nature.

People who reach out for some support might be experiencing difficulties with worry, negative self-talk or confidence. They may have noticed a change in their behaviours such as checking things more or avoiding certain situations. Sometimes it’s described as vicious cycle. Whether this has been going on for a while or something new, we work together to understand what your unhelpful cycles look like and how we can break them by creating healthier habits and patterns of thinking, such as focusing and enhancing your strengths. This in turn changes how we feel, and helps us be better equipped to manage difficult emotions.

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.

Do you find yourself struggling to trust others and are holding back from meaningful connections? These concerns may be the result of unresolved trauma. What is Trauma? Trauma occurs precisely when an event is overwhelming to a point where a person is unable to rationalize, defend, process or accept what is happening to them or someone close to them. Trauma fragments the brain’s ability to make sense and therefore move on from the onslaught. The event when it occurs overwhelms and drives us to our basic survival responses. When the traumatic incident occurred did you find yourself unable to move? www.honouringrief.com
