Hello, thank you for taking the time to read my profile. My name is Rita. Life can throw us many challenges most of which we can overcome. When the self help approach no longer meets the need and the challenges feel too much to cope with it is then that we can benefit from a talking therapy. Talking therapies are psychological treatments for mental and emotional problems like stress, anxiety and depression . It can help understand the underlying causes for depression , work through issues causing anxiety. The benefits of counselling are broad and wide.

Everyone needs to feel valued, understood and connected, and yet throughout life there can be times when we face challenges, struggles, or difficulties. These are the times when counselling can offer a safe and confidential place where you have the chance to share and explore your feelings. I offer a calm, welcoming, and compassionate space where you will be listened to without judgement, and with empathy and understanding. Led by you, we can work together, using reflection and exploration to help develop and enhance your own unique strengths and create opportunities for growth and positive change.

I am an accredited psychotherapist & counsellor offering support to adults, couples & young people 16+. How we relate to ourselves and to others impacts our mood, our confidence, our outlook and self-esteem. I work to shed light on how our relationships shape us, and how we can get stuck repeating patterns of behaviour that no longer serve us. Symptoms such as anxiety, OCD and depression thrive when we get into a vicious cycle of relating ineffectively. Counselling gives us a safe space to reflect and explore what has happened to us. It can free us up to think and feel differently about our lives, our choices, our way forward.

I have experience working with a range of clients with issues such as high anxiety, depression , trauma, BPD, autism and ADHD. All of these conditions can lead to difficulties with day to day life, low self esteem, relationship problems, and a loss of a general sense of wellbeing in the world. I am fully aware of the overlap between these conditions, and that a client who has a diagnosis, doesn't necessarily fit neatly behind a label. I also know that not having a diagnosis can have a huge impact too. Whatever you are struggling with, together we can explore your individual needs and identify ways to improve your experience of life.

Are you feeling anxious, depressed , stressed, insecure, or overwhelmed by your emotions? Or are you looking for someone who will listen and be non judgemental and to whom you can talk in confidence about issues that are bothering you that would be difficult to share with friends or family members? Your feelings may be related to a bereavement or loss, the effects of abuse, relationship issues, or a major life change or may be related to something unresolved from the past. You may also be seeking support in setting goals and moving on in a positive way. These (and others) are areas in which I am well experienced.

Are you feeling anxious, depressed , lost, lonely, or disconnected from others? Have you lost a loved one and are feeling overwhelmed with grief? Maybe you’re experiencing unhelpful thoughts around “not being good enough” or “feeling unable to cope”? Or are using work, shopping, exercise, food, drugs and/or alcohol as a way of coping? If any of these resonate with you, you are not alone. I can offer you a warm, empathic, safe space where you can feel comfortable to talk to me about anything, whether it is your current situation that is troubling you or something that happened to you in your past.

Outdoor Therapist. I understand that this may be a daunting step for you and I aim to make it as comfortable as I can. Perhaps something specific has triggered how you are feeling, or maybe something in your past is weighing you down. Experiencing anxiety, depression or anger issues you want to get under control? Feeling overwhelmed? We can look at practical ways of coping. You may even have a MH diagnosis and want to explore what this means to your life now. If you decide you want to dig deeper, uncover the origins of these feelings I will be right by your side. And if you need to keep that door shut for now, that's OK too.

My counselling practice is centred on the belief that difficulties can send us ‘off-track’ but we all have the capacity to find our way back, we might just need a little help. I work with what you bring, using the counselling approach that meets your individual needs, rather than fitting your needs into a predecided approach. For example you may need some immediate help with tools to manage your current symptoms, and then later want to look deeper into discovering the cause of those symptoms. Whatever you bring I will not judge. I will offer you the care, empathy and understanding that I would want in a counsellor.

Depression Counsellors
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy by depression counsellors in Weston-super-Mare. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
